Currently moving from having ATT (uverse) to a Comcast only area. I truly hate Comcast (I worked there years ago, and they are an absolutely terrible company on numerous levels).

Long story short, when crunching the numbers in a place I have to rely on Comcast Internet as there are no other options, it was not cheaper to go with a Hulu with live TV, Sling, or Playstation VUE. Internet on its own with Comcast, if you want anything above their 50MB service, it 70-80 bucks depending if you rent their router or not. Hulu Plus or Playstation VUE is at least $39.99 at a minimum, and after everything is said and done, it was cheaper to utilize Comcast's Double Play for $121 / month after taxes.

It sickens me to leave AT&T. I loved their service, it was affordable, and blew my previous Comcast experience away. I wish someone would do something about the scenario where you really have no option for high speed Internet outside of only Comcast.

True story - I grew up in the neighborhood directly behind this school and once it was built, and the playground was literally 2 ft. from our backyard, we moved.

Got mine on First time account creation (which is free) will get you a coupon for 15% off. My wife absolutely loved the ring (it was awesome in person) and she gets a ton of compliments on it. Got a 5 year warranty and had excellent interactions with their support (not on the ring, but a pair of diamond earrings I got her as well).

I would go the Better Business Bureau route. I've used that for 2 occasions and received an excellent response both times. A company will respond as the complaint is public record on the BBB website (as will their response).

Agreed. Guy is the worst.

If embedding was actually quick and easy, I would embed this to further hammer home the point.


06/25/2018 - 12:16pm It is true. With how long…

It is true. With how long this upgrade took to happen, you would think a few use cases would have been extensively the most basic level of a test plan:

1. User accounts

1.1 Can a user be created

1.2 Can a user be deleted

1.3 Will a moderator have admin control?

I think they were really busy and only got around to testing 1.1.


06/24/2018 - 7:04pm I remember when I turned 13…

I remember when I turned 13 and my friends and I thought we were bad asses cause we could swear. So we swore a lot.

When you re-read your posts, do you think you come off as educated? Mature? "a bad ass"? I assure you, to a high percentage of readers on this board, you are none of the above. But keep doing you 'bruh'.



06/24/2018 - 6:22pm His Dudeness is consistently…

His Dudeness is consistently the worst poster on this board. Please nuke this insult spewing account as soon as you fix the code to be able to do so.

Or give me root access, I'll have it fixed in 5 min.


06/24/2018 - 6:20pm There are certainly a few…

There are certainly a few really dragging this place to the ground anymore..

And the whole not being able to nuke an account thing.. if that truly is the result of this upgrade, someone should be punched in the face. I can't imagine it would take more then 5 minutes of googling around Drupal forums or tweaking code to get that fixed. This upgrade process has been amateur at best.

I hate to say it, but I give you credit Bluey. Not because I agree with anything that you say (I don't), nor that I enjoy reading any of your posts (I don't).. but you certainly stick to your guns. You play the role of 'heel' quite well.

This team is losing serious talent after this year on defense. I doubt a “natty” is coming in 2019.

06/02/2018 - 8:36am .

Seems you would really have to break this into categories / genre.

Layne Staley (their unplugged cd is in my top 5 of all time)

Roy Orbison

Whitney Houston

All should be added to the many great listings so far.

He made 4 shots in a row. The earth is still round.

05/25/2018 - 6:58am ..

The good news being, there’s nowhere to go but up right?

05/24/2018 - 9:40am .

Continuing to clean / organize my house to sell, then the Slayer / Lamb of God concert on Sunday evening at Freedom Hill!

05/14/2018 - 11:53pm .

Really loving the Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats latest cd (Tearing at the Seams). Really a step up from their first cd.

Otherwise, waiting for the new Burn the Priest cd to come out in another week.

05/05/2018 - 7:47pm .

That video is disgusting. The coach should be fired and those kids should face legal consequences. Ive never understood why a person would feel tough jumping another person with multiple people. Disgusting.

04/26/2018 - 10:22pm .

That’s a terrible first round pick from the Lions.

04/22/2018 - 9:12pm .

He unprotected his twitter feed. Holy hell thats ... just wow.

Hope he gets the help he very obviously needs.

I love music and have a killer collection that I manage through iTunes. Always “heard” vinyl sounds good, but I just don’t see the appeal. As I have a one year old, the only time I can listen to music that I want is on the drive to work and back.. do you vinyl fans have record players in your cars?

On a side note, the Cracker Barrel is Benton Harbor has a collection of vinyl albums for sale (mostly newer stuff). Thought that was interesting.

04/21/2018 - 11:24pm .

Good taste in music, maybe not so good taste in username.

04/19/2018 - 2:03pm .

It certainly has a very cool lobby, but I’m here with my wife and 1 year old. Our room is about 11 ft long by 7 ft wide, and I can barely fit in the bathroom (I’m 6ft and 215 lbs). Just super cramped quarters. Might be ok if you were solo, but had to pay an additional $40 a piece for a crappy little fridge and microwave in my room. I’d prob look elsewhere, there are other hotels in the loop.

04/19/2018 - 11:38am .

I’m in Chicago for a conference right now. I suggest not staying at the Palmer House Hilton (ever) and prepare for a bag tax when you go to a store.

04/14/2018 - 7:33am .

Since my sump pumps are insanely active year round, I have a generac for my house. Losing power should be no big deal... but here’s hoping it doesn’t hit as hard as they are saying.

As someone that rents a cabin in Au Train every August, I second this. Don’t ruin my spot! :)

04/11/2018 - 10:54pm .

Great post, love the UP, got married on Miner’s Beach. Munising does get a bit busy during July / August, so we always rent a small cabin in Au Train (about 15 min outside of Munising). Awesome roadside beaches that aren’t very full, awesome views, great kayaking through the Au Train river. Munising is great with kids because free waterfalls, obviously partial to Miners Beach as mentioned, and as everyone else stated, the boat tour is a must if Lake Superior allows it. Au Train is also about a 20 min drive away from Lakenenland (a free, very cool place that words can’t really describe). Google it.

Kayaking along Pictured Rocks is awesome too, but you will have to wait till the little one is a bit older.

On a hotel note, if you want a cheap, but rustic and clean place to stay, try the Terrace Motel. The owner Larry actually did my wedding up there and is a super nice guy. The motel is no frills, but well taken care of.

Have fun, the UP is an awesome place!

He’s ready. He spits hot fire.

04/08/2018 - 10:15pm .

Certainly tragic. I’ve been off painkillers for 8 years now after 2 stints of rehab. While the insurance companies mentioned in the story are certainly in it for the cash, they are by no means responsible for his death. He made poor choice after poor choice. Ultimately, you have to face yourself in the mirror and decide what you want. Clean and sober or crash and burn. There are fantastic medications that can assist in getting you clean, and then the real hard work starts. Life being sober. Dealing with things as an adult, etc..

04/04/2018 - 8:35pm .

The statement by Carol Siemon was disgusting.

04/02/2018 - 11:25pm .

Guy should go make his money if he can. Don’t see how coming back will get him drafted any higher.

04/02/2018 - 11:03pm .

I’m sad.

03/31/2018 - 3:56pm .

This is disgusting on numerous levels. I guess I’m not surprised Ole Miss is continuing to be just a sham of a college and complete and utter assholes, but I am surprised UM didn’t take these guys to the woodshed with any and all information possible. Were they assuming Ole Miss would back down?

03/29/2018 - 6:32pm .

Agreed. Solid insight here.

03/23/2018 - 11:17pm .

Harbaugh stated he is still thinking of who OC will be. Wasn’t it announced it would be McElwain? Is this common to not have an OC at the start of spring ball?

03/20/2018 - 10:00pm .

Frasier was a fantastic series and often overlooked. Excellent show.

03/18/2018 - 11:33pm .

While this is surely twitter behavior and not a serious bet, the back and forth with Shea Patterson and Johnny Manziel about the upcoming game and a signed jersey is... maybe not a great idea while we are waiting for the NCAA to rule him eligible?

03/17/2018 - 11:06pm .

Michigan is -10 in Wagner’s 9 minutes. Dude needs to wake up or Michigan is going home.

03/17/2018 - 10:51pm .

This offense is terrible. Should be blowing Houston out.

03/17/2018 - 10:28pm .

I think Wagner is overrated. Fight me.

03/15/2018 - 10:30pm .

Well this is an awful first 2 min.

03/15/2018 - 10:08pm ..

Agreed! My 11 month old will be up at 6am like clock work. I am dreading tomorrow.

03/09/2018 - 11:33pm .

Actual fights don’t happen in the NBA, so I doubt it.

03/09/2018 - 12:55pm Magnus, I generally like your

Magnus, I generally like your posts, but your statement is full of conjecture here. Where is your proof that 'more momentum and less depression' would impact anything other than this board?

Winning our bowl game would have guarenteed Otis Reese staying with us right? I mean, this just isn't your opinion right?

03/09/2018 - 7:53am .

Honestly, I can see why Speight was told no if that’s truly the case. Guy had a substantial injury and what’s the point of playing a glorified scrimmage that doesn’t really mean anything? Why take the risk, and why not see how BP comes out and plays.. seemed like a no brainer on many levels.

03/08/2018 - 8:54am .

Did you previously work for Vartek?

03/08/2018 - 8:05am .

Yeah, I disagree. I realize this will vary depending on the field, but things have really opened up for me since earning my doctorate.

03/03/2018 - 11:53am .

Yeah, cause displaying to all what everyone is searching / posting on the Internet sounds like a good idea.

02/27/2018 - 10:14pm .

Yeah, I would pay a couple hundred for Michigan Jordan 5s.

02/25/2018 - 9:05am .

I don’t know what’s more believable, a husband leaving a dinner due to his dislike of the attendees and the wife staying behind, or Coach K just casually walking his dog.

This is journalism now eh? Wow.

02/23/2018 - 8:41am .

I don’t disagree, but I’ve never heard the saying “safe as houses”.
