|2 weeks 5 days ago||+1, Informative||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure if serious.||
I'm pretty sure that there was no way to comment for the first couple of years.
The comment section in its current incarnation is about 8 years old. Prior to that (back in the blogspot days), the site used a system called Haloscan, which was full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. But if I remember right, even Haloscan was implemented well after the founding of the blog.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Northwest side||
I would suggest looking on Craigslist, Padmapper, or other similar sites for a rental home on the northwest side of Ann Arbor, in the Maple/Miller area. It is relatively inexpensive compared to the rest of Ann Arbor, but still within bike ride distance of campus. When we moved back to Ann Arbor in 2012, we were able to rent a 3-BR home there, within walking distance of Haisley elementary, for not much more than a 2-BR apartment near campus. Housing values have gone up a bit since then, but it's still a good bang-for-your-buck.

|16 weeks 1 day ago||That's why (initially) doing this through Lyft makes sense.||
When a user hails a car through Lyft, the user tells you a) where they are, and b) where they're going. Lyft/GM can make sure that they only send out the autonomous vehicles when the route between the start and finish points is well-mapped and navigable by our new robot overlords.
As techological capabilities and mapping data improve, they can gradually increase the variety of routes to which they send out the autonomous vehicles.

Just a reminder - looks like this account is still active.

(Is it just me, or has there been a sharp uptick in spam posters recently?)
|17 weeks 5 days ago||The thing about the sheet throw...||
The way the sheet arcs around behind him, it's like his rage has developed a gravitational pull that sucked the folder into orbit.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan doing pretty well so far, I'd say.||
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for the reminder that this was happening.||
And good call on the $41.07.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Ugh.||
Which is why I spent my remaining per diem at a bar on the Riverwalk before heading to the airport.
(What are they going go do, kick me out of band?)

*checks profile pic*
Color me shocked.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Brian Wilson||
I saw the Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour a couple of years ago. Unless his condition has improved dramatically, I doubt Brian Wilson will be doing much of anything on this summer tour.

|25 weeks 5 days ago||Hmm.||
"Now that I'm done with producing offspring (please, God...) I'd love to send them to a new home."
You know, pronoun antecedent basis is a helpful thing.

|28 weeks 4 days ago||Spam, spam, spam, spam...||
In the comments for the "how close are we" diary, there's some spam from a user named JGZ59146. Looks like he's done the same in a few other threads as well.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Beaten to the punch!||
I was about to say the same thing. See, for example, this profile of Ace. (This may also be the first public mention of Ace's ska band?)
Good idea, though. Might be worth re-starting, since there's been some turnover in the last few years.

|35 weeks 4 days ago||1963 Caddy||
When I was in high school (early aughts), my father and I restored one of these:
A 1963 Cadillac convertible. (This isn't the exact car, but it's the right year, model, and color.) I remember that the engine compartment was so big you could literally sit in it while working on the engine.
Driving that thing felt like steering a cruise ship.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||Matt Hinton used to do this...||
Matt Hinton used to do an annual article on this topic, demonstrating that recruiting stars DO matter - players with better rankings are more likely to become all-Americans, get drafted, etc. Here's one from a couple years ago.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Wow...||
Now I know how it feels to be Internet Famous. I'll try not to let it go to my head.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Too bad.||
I was hoping they'd name it The Terrarium.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Thank goodness||
Thank goodness we don't peddle cheap foreign-manufactured goods and licensed schlocky merchandise.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Think they could get him as the color commentator?||
|39 weeks 5 days ago||Awful news.||
May he and his family find peace.
I've got two young boys, and I can't imagine what his parents are going through.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Per Brian on Twitter...||
An automated DMCA bot sent a takedown notice based on somebody's Kathy Ireland avatar. Brian missed the message from his host, so the whole site got taken down.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||My theory on Rudock's drastic improvement...||
So he took a hit against Minnesota and hurt his shoulder, now suddenly he's on fire.
Remember this movie?

Everything gets tougher after kids, doesn't it?
