    2019 Raiders: What's the Frequency, Antonio?

    The Raiders are playing the Packers in Winnipeg. There was an issue with the CFL goalposts (not sure exactly what) so they are treating it as an 80 yard field with no kickoffs, drives start at the 25. The “end zone “ starts at the marked 10 yard markers on the field, but the goal posts are...

    2019 Gordon Watch: Reinstated and It Feels So Good

    I sort of get what you are saying, but in poker terms, I look at a a given edition of a team (say, the 2019 Pats) as basically an all-in move, you have to be fully committed to what you are doing, and your recourse is minimal once you've set things in play for the season, other than to stick...

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    A fair number of surround broadcasts move all the audio to center now. It's really annoying. I have to put my receiver in multi-channel stereo to deal with it (where it replicates all the audio on all the speakers).

    Half million in loot stolen from A-Rod’s car in San Francisco

    What's even more whack is there's a lot ON THAT BLOCK. I know it's there because there's a bar in that block that my friend likes to go to before games, so I've walked by the lot on the way to the park.

    Half million in loot stolen from A-Rod’s car in San Francisco

    I believe I mentioned this in TBLTS San Francisco vacation thread, don't leave shit in your car. From the article:

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    I'm still holding out :) - it's probably time to buy one, I'm seeing the 65C9 at $2800 without any shopping/attempt to reduce prices. One of the things that stopped me is a good friend said he compared side-by-side and ended up getting the Sony XBR 65a9g (unfortunately, priced more like $3800)...

    Building a new mid-level gaming PC

    It turns out that the power supply is OK. The video card sparked to the CPU fan surround. Computer is alive and running off the built-in video. But EVGA is going to replace my video card under warranty (!?!) I think, which sorta blows my mind. But I'm thinking about building a new PC using...

    Diary of a commentator

    The travel from Tokyo to Yokohama is almost trivial, FYI, depending on exactly where the baseball/softball venue is. The big soccer (football) stadium, where they held Club World Cup is quite close to Shin-Yokohama - basically it's one stop from Tokyo Central to get there, maybe 10-15 minutes...

    Building a new mid-level gaming PC

    Thanks, all - some things in here I wouldn't have considered/known. I'm still digesting / working through PC Parts Picker, might come back with a proposed build to critique. (But, waiting for Ice Lake would be ideal, if I can limp along with a new PSU in the old box I'd be happy for sure.)

    Building a new mid-level gaming PC

    So, my ~4 year old PC's power supply just died last night. (Well, it's at least that, maybe more, TBD - it's never good when you smell burning right?!?!). I'm going to try replacing the PSU as a hail mary but it's probably time for a new box, since I won't have a ton of confidence in it going...

    2019 US Open- Pebble Beach

    I'm going for Thursday and Friday. Really looking forward to it, I went when it was at Olympic 5-6 years ago. EDIT: wow, that was 7 years ago?!?!

    Modem/Router Combo for Comcast XFinity

    A couple thoughts: if you aren't wedded to the combo box, think about a separate modem and router (I get where that might not be an option though), this article explains why pretty well. For separates, matching the recommendations in their modem vs router link...

    Crack .pdf password

    https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-open-a-PDF-file-which-is-password-protected-and-I-have-forgotten-the-password It appears that much older PDF files, v1.3 and down are sort of trivial to hack. 2.0 and up use "real" cryptography, and I think 4-5 years ago you'd likely have a v2.0 PDF (you can...

    Derby anyone?

    You can do either. A Show bet (3rd place) pays off if the horse comes in 1/2/3. A Win bet only pays off for 1st.

    All iPhone X, all the time

    At one time, I think yes. Not sure if that's still the case, and if it did, it would normally pull his profile pic from Facebook (unless his FB profile pic is his company logo?!?!)

    Apple& Qualcomm reach settlement. With Apple signing 6yr licensing agreement

    The rumor I heard the other day was as a result of the settlement, Intel is shuttering their modem business entirely & immediately, which they bought from Infineon for $1.4B back in 2010, to get into the LTE chipset business to begin with. Acquisition announcement...
