  1. I've been playing a lot of NBA 2K20. I used to play mostly team control, but now I prefer player control where it's you against 9 people over the internet. It feels pretty cool to be in charge of one player as a team. Need teamwork to win. I prefer playing the Center position because I like to bang in the post, grab rebounds, blocking shots. Scoring is very secondary -- plenty of ball hogs so that's not a problem. I've been playing as Boban Marjanovic (Dallas) who's 7'4". In real life, he only plays like 1/4 of the game because his body can't take the whole game, but in the game there's no fatigue so he's great. Rebounding and block party monster though he is kinda slow.
  2. I had to work last night -- sorta an emergency/called in by the boss. Thankfully I have an AWD Honda CRV SUV, because the nearly foot of snow wasn't plowed yet. There were some high drifts around the facility. The Honda went through it easily. 


    Merry Christmas! 



  3. Shameless plug for a friend's YouTube channel. 


    Tauntingbatmanv1's PS4 channel

  4. Prayers and love sent and am pulling for you to get better.
  5. It works most of the time, but sometimes it starts repeating "mic is off". I bought a new one that came with a smart LED light bulb, so if you want this one it's yours. It's the chalk color and is slightly dirty. Works with a standard micro USB cable (not included). I will pay s/h to USA/Canada.
  6. PPE is for closers!

  7. I just thought of a clothing piece -- a one piece jumpsuit that looks like you're wearing dress slacks and a button down shirt. It's all built together, so no messing with belts and suspenders. It can even have a simulated belt. Step into it and do up the buttons on the shirt part.


    A onesie for lazy office workers.

      What if ya just screen printed all of it on the suit so you didn't have to worry about uncomfortable buttons or collars?

  8. Hunter (1984-1991) is on Tubi - all seasons. Cool formula -- tough rule breaker paired with a beautiful fellow misfit on the force. Mopar heaven with McCall's 1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z which was later upgraded to the newer version.  I've watched 4 episodes already. "Works for me."

      I used to watch it.  Also, in 1989 I once hung out with a girl that looked just like a younger version of the girl on Hunter...It does beg the question...Tubi or Not Tubi?            



      Haa    (Yeah seriously I have no idea what that is...Every other day there's some new website or streaming dealio...Hmmmm)...

    3. jd_1138


      It's just a website that shows movies/TV shows. They pay for it by showing commercials occasionally.




      I think there's also a Tubi app, but the website works as well.

    4. Sauron


      Yes I've had good luck with Tubi. Even though it's ad-supported, I just haven't seen all that many ads, maybe one per episode.

  9. Yeah those SE's were made until 1990, so she could conceivably typed the essay in like 1994-1996 when she was like 13 to 15 making the computer only 4 to 6 years old. I remember our computer lab having Apple IIe/IIC's and Mac 128 and 512 computers even in 1991 when I graduated. Some of the IIe's were probably at least 10 years old.
  10. You can't always get that initial Vienna Sausage out of the can

    But if you try sometimes, you just might find, you will get the Vienna Sausage that you need.

      But Vienna is in Austria, not Germany. You are making me quite Hungary, though.

  11. I just want a simple living room with a macrame fern hanging in a corner, a hi-fi setup with an ELP album on, and a bag of 1970's El Taco fast food. Is that so much to ask?

    1. pce_collector


      In my experience, yes.

    2. GoldLeader


      I'll bet you could approximate it,   If  you're not already...

  12. Google Messages app keeps crashing on my phone -- Moto G4. Anyone else have this problem? I reinstalled the app and same thing.

    1. jd_1138


      I just downloaded the Verizon Messages+ app, and it works even though I don't have a Verizon account. I have Consumer Cellular.

  13. I put like a $500 item on ebay. Somebody asked what the reserve was, and I replied "I think $125" (I couldn't remember exactly). Turns out it was $150, so the maroon proceeded to bid it up to $155 against someone else in the last minute of bidding before it ended. Then she had the nerve to message me asking if I'd lower it to $125 since I told her I thought it was $125 reserve. She also said she couldn't afford $155. :)  I just cancelled the auction and relisted it and told her to go in with her $125 bid and don't go a penny over $125. Some of these people are so dumb it's amazing they can get up in the morning and dress themselves.

      Thanks Goldleader for the kind words. I will admit to some self-serving though, as I am sure the item will probably go for $300 on the next round (hopefully). So the minute she sent me the message saying she couldn't afford the $155, I admonished her for bidding more than she was willing to spend. Then I hit "cancel order -- buyer cannot afford".  :)

    3. bluejay


      @GoldLeaderI just decided that I'd be a nice person, canceled the order, and kept the system for spare parts and experimenting. But now that I think about it I should've said that:)

    4. GoldLeader


      @jd_1138 Oh,  I kind of misunderstood, thinking you meant for her to win the auction at $125, (I wasn't even thinking on how that would work)...Either way you were the nice guy for letting her off the hook.
