    ZIP Disks

    I recall back in the late 1990’s we had to buy a Syquest drive, and then we had to splurge on a 1GB hard drive to send graphics files to our printer. That cost us $10,000 bucks!!

    Google Home wall switches

    I have my house almost fully automated with a hodge podge of switches from We-mo to Z-wave to Lutron. Don't think the We-mo ones play nice with Google home. I use samsung's smartthings hub to control everything and it works good enough (for me). The most recent lutron ones mentioned above were...

    2023 PGA Championship--Oak Hill

    Lots of changes at Oak Hill but the course looks fantastic. I'm marshalling #16 and am amazed at the logistics and work involved in hosting such an event.

    How interested are you in the Red Sox at this point?

    Been a fan since ‘75. My fandom almost always has rested on the few generational talents the team had, and it’s characters that kept me interested. It started for me with Yaz, my boyhood idol. Then I kind of lost interest when Lynn and Fisk were gone but stayed with them only because Yaz was...

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    I think what we witnessed after 2003 with regard to this team and the overall landscape of MLB and some of the characters that made up these teams, will not be seen again for a long, long time. It was a generational feat that really may not appear again to many of us over the age of 50 (like...

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Another one for me (or rather my son) Brian Daubach. He was re-habbing and playing in Rochester. I took my son to the game and Daubach came up and had at least a 5 minute conversation with him, asking him if he played ball, where he liked to play and so on. Then signed his glove and told him...

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Yaz. And I only started really following him as my 8 year old self in 1975. The ‘75 World Series was the first I remember and he had already peaked and was considered an older veteran near the end of his career. My dad used to bring me home the New York Times sports sections from work every...

    20 K's: 4/29/1986

    Clemens was the first pitcher I saw that made me literally root for the offense to get their 3 outs and let Roger get back on the mound. Only two players have had that effect on me. Him, and Pedro.

    Thanks for the post in my unlimited PTO topic. I'm eager to hear your experiences. I run an exhibit company that designs/builds/services trade show exhibits (and other exhibits) and we're very seasonal so this is a concern as well as the non-exempt/hourly employees (I only have 6 of those...

    4G Android phone megathread

    I am. However it's mainly when playing music to a bluetooth connected speaker. It's very choppy and erratic at times, but not all the time.

    Natinals vs. Dodger$

    Did anyone get a Grady Little vibe when Roberts went out to the mound and left Kershaw in the game to load the bases? They'd be roasting him if they had lost that game.

    4G Android phone megathread

    I have a MOTO X (2nd gen) and this latest update has killed my battery life.  Also bluetooth doesn't work without turning it off and on several times to get it to pair with my car or bluetooth speaker.  Has anyone experienced this similar problem with Bluetooth?  I've deleted all profiles and...

    Anyone have experience with the new Moto-X?  I have the original and have enjoyed it but suddenly I can't get through a work day without charging it.

    Home Automation / Connected Devices / IOT

    My very basic setup thus far: I have WeMO light switches in the house that I use to control lights in a few rooms (the kids never shut their lights or TV off in their bedrooms for example).  I can see if the lights are on/off from anywhere, and if we're on vacation I can turn them on so it...

    4G Android phone megathread

      I have had a Moto-X since they launched and love it.  The size is perfect, performance is great (coming off an Iphone 4s which I jailbroke).  My only advice is don't drop the sucker!  I've dropped mine three times and all three times the screen shattered completely.  I don't like carrying it...
