Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Welp, being a content moderator/admin for Facebook sounds like an absolutely horrific job.

All the more reason to hate the Electoral College or at least the all or nothing basis of it. The GOP has won the popular vote once since 1992.

Watched first two episodes this weekend. Thank you to the people here who raved about how good it is. I probably wouldn't have given it a look otherwise.

Re: Politics & Current Events

My dad has always been liberal and as he has gotten older has leaned even further left. Especially after W and now Trump. Whom he thinks are just bumbling puppets controlled by a much darker force. My mom I would consider more center/left, although she always in the nicest way I guess says racist co...

WTF is going on?!?!?


I think concessions are 20% off first hour Wrigley is open. But yes, i do imagine they want to recoop the Trump reelection money quickly. 2020 is quickly approaching

Re: Cord Cutting advice

Cobra Kai is fantastic. Question for Youtube TV users. I have PS Vue and the only drawback for that is for instance the Cubs play at 7pm and I am recording it. I want to start watching the game at 8pm while the game is still in progress, I can't start from the start of the game and then fast forwar...

. Damon Berryhill, Steve Buechelle, Scott Sanderson, Mike Bielecki, Luis Salazar, Rey Sanchez, Doug Dascenzo, Les Lancaster, Paul Assenmacher, etc. I couldn't tell you a thing about many of them but the mention of their names brings me right back to being a 10 year old.

Re: Cord Cutting advice

Unless you're looking for 1980s game shows and sitcoms that TVLand and Netflix don't bother with, I think you'll be alright. I'm sold on 50 bucks for YouTubeTV which includes the local broadcast channels. Time to start the convincing. I've been trying the free trial of that this week after this thr...

Re: Cord Cutting advice

I cut the cord in January 2018, I had to do a lot of convincing to the wife but she is now on board. We went with PSVUE manly because of the DVR capabilities. We have the premium package that's like $80 and includes HBO and Showtime. We don't have channels like History or WGN but it is half what we ...

Re: NHL Thread

Bruins should make pretty quick work of the Blues, probably 5 games.

Can't root for any team from St Louis. Besides Chicago teams are 2-1 all time in championship rounds vs Boston teams so let them win this one vs the city with terrible cuisine.

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

So for about a week my wife can't hear the person she is calling nor can the other person hear her during phone calls. I know next to nothing about Iphones. I did notice the speaker icon greyed out and you can't turn it on when you try to call someone. Funny thing is, if she plays music on her phone...
