SOX is a giant pain in the ass. I work in Medical Products Distribution and it's a weekly audit topic.

I'll be back from vacation in a week and I have one started. I'll post it when I'm done.

You can certainly trash talk his NFL experience, which is what Bluemer was doing.

57 hours. Woke up for a night shift job on Thursday at 6pm. Finally went to bed at 3am Sunday morning.

Agree. People who don't live in Ohio can't understand it. Cleveland always gets crap from Columbus, too. There's not a ton of love between the two. Columbus jumps on either the Cincinnati or Cleveland bandwagon when it suits them since they have a crappy Hockey team and an off and on again, mostly ignored, MLS team. I live in Columbus and people rip Cleveland all the time. The Land is definitely its own place and their fans care more about pro sports than college. OSU is more of a throw-in for rooting interests.

Haha, yep. Love it. The nut-kicker was finally punished. Too bad for OKC the League only got the balls to do this now.

Great last line by Colin (weird to say that).

Your opinion of Brady has dropped because he's using the legal system as it's designed to attempt to clear his name? Yep, that's pretty much one of the dumbest things I've read on here.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||So, I use a RPi3 with Kodi||
So, I use a RPi3 with Kodi for all of my pro sports with the ProSports add-on (and some college), tv content (Exodus add-on) which is usually available a couple hours after air w/o commercials, and for movies (Exodus/Phoenix add-ons). There is nothing more bang-for-your-buck that is better. I use an Ortek Media Remote ($15) with a USB IR dongle to control it, along with the Constellation app for iPhone, so I don't need to buy extra things for it. It also allows for direct wiring to eliminate the issues of wifi. Total cost with remote is $50, or $60 if you don't have a micro-SD card laying around.
That being said, the absolute best-case scenario is to have a friend/family member with an awesome U-Verse subscription that will let you use it. Their website/app for streaming is fantastic and when my in-laws had U-Verse I got access to all of their 300+ channels without issue online. I would have paid them to keep it if they weren't dead-set on leaving ATT. I have heard that some cable providers are getting better at offering web-streaming of their subscribers content, but none have touched ATT so far for me.
The great thing about a Chromecast is that once you start it on the laptop, phone, tablet, etc. you don't lose access to the device. You can go about your business reading the blog, checking email and Facebook - whatever you do - while the Chromecast does the heavy-lifting for you. It handles WatchESPN and Netflix like a champ, I haven't tried Amazon Prime Video to see if it's supported, but if it is, I'm sure it works well, too.
Good luck with the cordcutting. I have enjoyed it.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Wait...so, dragons, people||
Wait...so, dragons, people being reincarnated by old women who look like young women, no-faced men, and the other various fantasy elements are believable, but using two longswords isn't? I'm with you that the fight was somewhat underwhelming, but not because it wasn't "believable", moreso because it was a little boring.
EDIT: Directed at a comment about the sword fight not being "believable" somewhere way down in the posts. No idea why it showed up here.
I loved the episode because it set up multiple plot lines I have interest in. To me, that was enough to get me excited for next week.

So is Charles Woodson, Desmond Howard, Trey Burke...and a quarter of the posters on here, including myself, so maybe we should stop implying that people are somehow less because they are from Ohio.

Viewer. Sorry, just thought we needed another instance of that word.

Oh, the poor Browns. They get to face Brady fresh off his suspension. He will unleash an unholy rage upon them like we've never seen. My condolences.

Yes, but there is, you know, actual evidence.

I agree. And even if Tom loses somehow, he'll have a field day in court suing the NFL for additional millions. Goodell's ego ruined him here.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Actually, he never got||
Actually, he never got caught. There's no actual evidence of wrong-doing. It's all flimsy "probably" and "generally aware" nonsense. The crazy thing is when teams ACTUALLY GET CAUGHT ball-tampering they either get a warning or a $25k team fine.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||The poor Browns. Brady is||
The poor Browns. Brady is going to throw for like 1000 yards in that game just to give the finger to Goodell.

|19 weeks 4 days ago||Have you actually tested that||
Have you actually tested that 8-9 GB/hour for Netflix? It's compressed, so I'm not convinced it's taking up that much data. I would have guessed 4-5 GB at the most. I've never tested data usage for Netflix on a PC or streaming device outside of a phone/tablet, which was not even the 4-5 GB/hour.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I have WOW! 110 megabit||
I have WOW! 110 megabit Internet for $60/month total. Pretty awesome. I'm tinkering with the idea of switching to their 300 megabit service for $75. Best pricing I've ever seen outside of those able to get Google's gigabit service. Glad to see that Fios is comparable in price. If they move here it will push competition.
