I have seen we have various threads about computer help, what to buy? various terms, differences between MAC and PC, I made this thread for anyone that wants some of us with computer experience to answer some of those who need some advice or help trouble shooting..
There are a bunch of people who frequent this Forum who's first name I know. There are countless others that I have no idea what their first name is.
Couple that with the hundreds upon hundreds of new people who have registered that would have no idea who people are... I thought it would be a good idea for a Thread where people (who wish to divulge this information) give their first name. This is not to be a joke Thread, please be serious and only respond if you wish to give your name.
So today I made a change that I knew was coming for quite a while: at his own request, Bub has been made a regular, non-admin, member of the NYYF community. Bob has been hugely responsible for the tenor and success of this site. He even delayed his retirement from NYYF Adminship for a year to help keep track of new users and other site matters. The role of "Administrator" here on the forum is something I protect quite closely, and Bob is the only other person I've given those keys to. He has...
We've spun off on a pretty significant tangent in the Trump thread. Let's move the discussion of the GOP health care plan here.
I'll go first.
ObamaCare is, in my opinion, an abject failure. It forced all Americans to purchase a commercial product, something our government has not previously done. The Supreme Court's decision to allow it was dubious, as the Court came up with its own language to interpret the word "fine" to really mean "tax" to keep the legislation within...
I closed down the Election 2016 thread, but have opened this one to discuss the POTUS. I must be a glutton for punishment. About 95% of the complaints I get via IM are from that one thread. A similar percentage of “reported posts” also come from that thread. However, it’s generated over 37,000 entries. Our community clearly sees value in a political discussion. So, we can let it continue.
Keep it courteous and respectful. Disagree all you want, but watch the...
New thread for the new year I guess.
I'm 90% sure none of my history classes in HS or college even mentioned Henry Wallace.
Seems like a cool guy. Just ordered American Dreamer: A Life of Henry A. Wallace.
It's also way past time to read a good Teddy Roosevelt biography. If anyone has a suggestion on that front, I'd be glad to hear it.
One for the movies and now one for TV shows :D
Anyone watch "Psych", the new show on USA? I like it quite a bit. It's pretty funny.
Also, anyone watch Hell's Kitchen?
I closed the Election 2016 thread, because it’s clearly old news. In its place, I opened a thread to discuss the President, and I’m opening this one to discuss Current Events that don’t necessarily center around the President. Often, the Election thread went off on tangents. I’m thinking of this as a stand-alone thread to be a home for those tangent discussions.
When the discussion gets around to politics, the same ground rules will apply as I stated in the President Trump thread:
I am a rabid fan of Comedy Bang Bang (saw them live two weeks ago here in DC). I also enjoy a few other things on the Earwolf Network like Ronna & Beverly, Sklarbro Country and Hollywoord Handbook. On the comedy front I also listen to Real Time, Doug Loves Movies and You Made it Weird (by the way Pete Holmes new show on TBS is fantastic).
The popculture podcasts I really like are Firewall & Iceberg and Hollywood Prospectus. For political podcasts, I listen to Slate's Political Gabfest, the...
This game starts with a poster putting up the name of a song and who recorded it. The next poster uses a word from the preceding song title to post a new song, and so on.
First poster: Drive My Car - The Beatles
Next poster: Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
I'll start the game with:
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
Dead at the age of 90.
oh hell yeah! So badass.
Warning: there are comic spoilers in here so watch at your own risk. You've been warned. (One is pretty damn epic, right at the end)
Next up - Roland's original Ka-tet (with a short description for each):
Cuthbert is Roland Deschain's childhood best friend.
Cuthbert is characterized by his outwardly flippant, care-free view of the world. He constantly makes jokes, often testing the nerves of his companions. He is notably skilled with a sling-shot.
Alain is described as being stout with blond hair. He is calm, reserved and often plays the role of level-headed mediator between ever...
74 degrees here in the Albany area on February 24. Honey bees are out and about. Nice for walking outdoors, but not good for the maple syrup producers, or the skiers and snowmobiles. Hope the cold air gets back before the fruit trees think about blossoming early.
Yeah, I know, but it's the off-season.
Which model do you have and love? I'm looking at Sharks. I'd like a Dyson, but they're out of my price range. I don't want to spend more than $200.
Now this might wind up being a thread for just me and Rhodey. But I think at this point this should deserves it's own thread that we can go back to every time a new season starts up.
As per usual, previews of this season show that there will be lots of fighting/crying/hookups/drama.
The format for the new season is that former exes have been paired up as teammates and will be forced to work together.
As a CT fan I will be pulling for CT and Diem, but I would be surprised to see Abram...
What is amazing about this clip -- that we have all seen --is how happy the Giant fans are.
Can sports still make us this happy?
Google Chrome is blocking the "The "I just saw a movie that doesn't warrant its own thread" (Version 2.0)" thread to me:
where I can't view or reply to the thread anymore. In case anyone else has that problem I thought maybe we should start a new thread here... Version 3.0
Once upon a time, we had a thread on Education. I can't seem to find it...it was likely in the old Political Soapbox. Regardless, increasingly, we've seen discussion of education show up in the Election thread. Probably not the right venue. So, allow me to create a space to discuss our educational system.
Is what we're doing in Public Education the right route? Should we have educational standards? Is it OK to leave some children behind? What should we be doing, as a society, to...
Just because we're posting spoilers and details in the tv show thread.
Has anyone here done this or the similar 23 and Me? Any surprises? I just got my kit in the mail and will be mailing it back tomorrow.
