Bang, bang to that baby!
|1 day 4 hours ago||Try Japanese mayo||
With the turkey sandwich. It's extra rich and yummy. Kewpie mayo is the brand, I believe.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Thanks for the update||
I look forward to an updated site with new apps.
Having spent a good chunk of my career in the IT world, I feel your pain. Nothing is as easy as it looks, communicating requirements can feel like talking into a black hole, and if you want something done right, you better be able to reach out and touch the people doing the work at all times.
Here's to the new and improved MGoBlog kicking ass 21st century style.

My neighbor went to Illinois and he still talks about losing on Higgins' shot in the 1989 Final Four. I find this amusing.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Early spring is nice...||
but a week from now, I escape to some serious warm weather in Aruba. I'll take the bonus early spring weather, but bang-bang, it's off to fun in the sun in a week. Can't wait!
|1 week 3 days ago||I love driving and fun cars||
so I'm fine with zero autonomy. There are times I would appreciate a break for a few minutes at a time while doing the I-94 boogie between Chicago and Ann Arbor during football season, though.
|1 week 3 days ago||It took 30 years of marriage...||
to get past the obligatory lame Valentine's card. My wife finally acknowledged the waste a few years ago. However, I believe the fancy 30 year anniversary rings she got had more to do with an end to Valentine's cards. So, when in doubt, go for the "grand gesture" to end the insanity.

After freshman dorm life, I lived in a fraternity house for 2 years and an apartment my last year. The apartment was by far the best. It was in a 3 story building that was maybe 8 years old on Tappan south of the B-school. WIth 3 roommates, life was easy to manage and we all got along well. Landlords were a nice hippie lady and her boyfriend. Anything wrong was fixed promptly. Fraternity house had way too many distractions, well, too many people that created distractions.
My daughter lived in a sorority for a year. It was a nice house, but it was full of distractions like my fraternity. Her grades proved that. My daughter then lived in the overpriced slum houses that are chopped up into multi-room units. The house was on Packard a block or so down from Campus Corners. There were 7 girls in a house setup for 8 (assumed 2 would live in the large basement room). She loved it, but I thought it was a rip off given the price paid for the rent. The landlord was not the best at fixing things and the place looked pretty beat up when you got past the fresh coat of paint, but hey, we are talking college life. Housing takes a beating.

I didn't vote for you.

So compute power and bandwidth are your best friends. The Roku box offers more real estate for DSPs, so there should be more compute power there. You also gain power supply advantages, but I have no idea if that is really the case with Roku. Greater bandwidth insures the IP packets get to the DSPs in the required timing window. Bandwidth also provides more time to recover from bad/grabled packets that need to be retransmitted or to recover from network congestion events. If you've watched DirecTV during heavy thunderstorms, you've seen this problem.
So...in this case, "more" should be better in every way and bandwidth is always your best friend.

concurs. Top Thrill Dragster and chili dogs don't mix.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Two beers to the weekend and National Signing Day||
As a sign of the importance of these events, I'll grab 2 Hopslams from my stash in honor of the ocassion. Hmmm...maybe Dirty Bastard is more appropriate?

can't touch this!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Bless his little heart...||
Karma is a bitch.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Great pictures||
Love the eye of the tiger photo. The snowglobe game will be one of my all time game memories. It was just beautiful and everyone was loving it. Especially the players.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||James Earl Jones...obviously||
Darth Vader FTW!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I am perfectly happy with a place to visit...||
that lacks political chatter. I'm here to enjoy Michigan football, fandom, and other sports. There are a million other places I can go to discuss politics. This is an oasis of pure Michigan fandom.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Hopefully Frey has the same first year impact...||
as Don Brown. That would be amazing. Also, probably not happening, but Harbaugh picked the guy, so I have ultimate faith.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Teddy Greenstein also...||
thinks Google is hard.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Good luck...||
but I'll miss the free insider scoop. At times, you stopped the rampant paranoia going on around here. Now, I'll just have to drink more beer.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||Molto buono||
|5 weeks 18 hours ago||I've got my fingers crossed||
Hopefully the shaking will be more on the gentle side. If he publicly calls Congress on their B.S., that would be a good thing. You have to wonder at times who's interests they are serving. One thing is for sure, things will be different the next 4 years.

Aren't you a spokesman for a certain ethnic yogurt? So, you are secretly Italian. Gotcha!
How about Souvlaki day?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I could see Bolivia...||
From the Peru side of Lake Titcaca. The Peruvians told us we shouldn't go there.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||They have no taste in fizzy sugar drinks||
and need to be treated as such. Faygo Rock and Rye is the bomb! Also, Better Made potato chips. Wish I could get those here in IL.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I have to admit...||
I've stopped following M Hockey this season. Too painful to watch.
Red Berenson is a true Michigan man. He's an ambassador for Michigan. He's built a scholarship endowment for the hockey program so everyone can get a full ride on tuition. He's a champion of college hockey as a path to the NHL. It's sad things are coming to an end with a whimper instead of a bang. I can only hope the best for him, but he needs to take a hard look at things and decide if he wants to hang around for one more year to bring back the echoes.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||But...that backend is most fetching.||
Lots of bits in the trunk.
|6 weeks 18 hours ago||Amen to that!||
Six weeks until I escape to a warm Caribbean island. Can't wait! Bang me!
|6 weeks 1 day ago||How about 21 days...||
until Groundhog Day. Then we find out there are 6 more weeks of winter, of course.

more Lawrence Marshall chatter?
[I hate page breaks. Should have gone all the way through the thread first.]
