  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: The Ask anything about computers thread

    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.. Jason

  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: The First Name Thread

    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. ...

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Thanks, Bub!

    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...

  1. President Donald Trump

    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. GROUND RULES Keep it courteous and respectful. Disagree all you want, but watch the...

  2. The "TV shows that don't warrant their own thread" thread

    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?

  3. Car Buying Advice Requested

    I could use some help figuring out which new car to get. My son's '02 Sentra is on it's way out, so he wants my '06 Camry which now has 134,000 miles. This is my 2nd Camry...the first was a '97 which I also bought new and kept a really long time. So I am looking at: another new Camry SE, a Subaru Legacy Premium and a Ford Fusion (maybe hybrid, maybe not) All are 4 cylinder. The Subaru has All Wheel Drive which I don't know much about. Anyone have any insight on these cars? Thanks.

  4. Non-Presidential News Stories That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread Thread

    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: ...

  5. Healthcare

    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...

    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

  8. Better Call Saul discussion thread [with spoilers once episodes premier]

    I have a feeling that this show may be a gem. Being in the BB universe, we already know Mike Ermentrout will be a regular. Walt and Jessie by season two I hear. I expect Gus as well. And just having VG at the helm gives me hope it will be written just as well. I wanted to be able to discuss without worrying about spoilers. I figure enough of us will be watching. Who's pumped?

  9. Making A Murderer

    Who else has watched or is watching? What are your thoughts? I still have two episodes to go, but wow. I know they can't show everything in a 10-episode series, but some very effed up stuff went down.

  10. Have you ever had a bad breakup from a long term relationship?

    I've told my close friends and I don't wanna go sharing on facebook, so I figure I'd tell you folks since I feel closer to you than a lot of other people (even those of you I hate :mad: ). Last Sunday night I caught my girlfriend of 4 years cheating on me. I was actually gonna propose to her this Christmas. It's been 4 days since I've left her and it's not getting any better for me. I feel completely ruined and lost. All I can think about is how perfect our relationship was our first two...

  11. ** Heeeeeeeeeeeeee's baaaaaaack! The Retired_Doc returns to the scene of the crime!!!

    Greetings, Friends of the Revolution. Now the back story: So since January, the little Wifey has been bugging me to take her to the Caribbean so that we could stay in our Condo there for a couple weeks. The Condo is great but gees/Louise the damn Island is SUPER hot! I really hate that much heat. Also, I'm a recluse, a hermit, an iconoclast; I like being alone here on my own plantation. So she kept pestering me and I kept resisting. Then lo and behold I get the message from Mr. Maynerd that...

  14. What are you reading in 2017?

    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.

  15. Let's Talk Podcasts, What Do You Listen To?

    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...

  19. Education

    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...

  20. The Video Game Thread

    Did a search, while there are a few threads about particular games, nothing for just a general discussion about anything. I'm playign the Godfather for Wii, anyone else play this? It's a great game, not one I thought I would enjoy this much.
