I will say also, that most large cloud providers have servers located in the EU that will help with parts of the GDPR (e.g., avoid an unexpected cross-border transfer in using a cloud vendor), and all are aware of data privacy rules and how to deal with those issues (e.g., model clauses).

 

Sorry, someone said GDPR and I got to bring my 2 years of work to a conversation on the blog...

08/16/2018 - 7:08pm Technically GDPR applies to…

Technically GDPR applies to individuals in the EU, not just EU individuals, so probably the most pertinent question is if you are offering services directly or indirectly to the EU.

 

I will echo what others have said here - cloud and then periodic other back ups work well, but definitely cloud first.

Eh, I don’t think that’s a fair statement. There is no doubt that TCL is a great value and certainly something I’d recommend, but on the cheap end I prefer Vizio’s picture and on the higher end range I prefer a Samsung or of course LG OLED. But obviously you’re paying more on the higher end (I don’t own any Samsungs or OLED because I tend to go cheaper).

Thats certainly a personal preference thing, and plenty of people don’t have the same preference... but I don’t think that’s simply chasing status.

"Santiago was a substandard marine."

08/07/2018 - 8:06pm That one was sad to watch…

That one was sad to watch because he was so much fun to watch. Plenty of blame to go around between bad luck with injuries, and both Shanahan and RG3 being st fault for not making it work.

08/07/2018 - 8:04pm That Buffalo game is…

That Buffalo game is absolutely classic, but he played 13 years in the NFL and was a solid backup. I guess in terms of fame it works.

 

He’s also an NFL head coach now.

08/07/2018 - 8:00pm I don’t think you’re doing…

I don’t think you’re doing it right, but I don’t want to knock you down.

My favorite part is where Courtney Smith doesn't have access to her own phone records.

08/04/2018 - 3:15am Of course I think it's fair…

Of course I think it's fair to say we all would.

 

But let's be honest - these offenses are not on the same ballpark. Hell it's not even the same sport.

08/03/2018 - 9:13am Wow, using the split logo…

Wow, using the split logo. You like to live dangerously.

08/01/2018 - 10:34pm That says that if they are…

That says that if they are terminating for cause (which they likely would do here) they have to give him the chance to explain himself, is all, unless he did something nuts like murder someone on national TV. And they have to give it to him in writing.

If they are terminating him for cause this is not a hurdle at all. That ship has already sailed.

08/01/2018 - 10:31pm Well caught. Zach Smith is…

Well caught. Zach Smith is faculty/staff, and the Policy clearly includes as misconduct "relationship violence" and "domestic violence" (each is defined in more detail in policy).

 

Certainly if if they wanted to, they could potentially use this to  try to void the contract/buyout. There's still a timing issue (new contract was this year), but that's arguable.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there won't be a next murder by Aarom Hernandez.

I use Alexa as central point for home. 

Lighting wise i have have a mix of Hue and Wemo switches. I prefer the switches since they are also “dumb” for in laws and guests, but the Hues work nicely on lights that are not tied to a switch.

Nest for thermostat.

For entertainment I use a Logitech Harmony Elite as well, which is nice for syncing with everything else.

I have a few TP-Link plugs I bought early since they were cheap I use for things like an extra fan and humidifier in the bedroom. They are bulky though and wouldn’t recommend because they block 2 plugs. The did finally get IFTTT integration though. 

 

All are also also coordinated with IFTTT.

Buying a text to speech company that has tons of other legal use purposes (which are properly disclosed through a privacy notice) does not mean they are surreptitiously recording your conversations and using them for nondisclosed reasons, and completely ignores legal requirements that impact this hypothetical tech in other jurisdictions (e.g., GDPR and eventually CCPA). 

By all means, be suspect about technology and I certainly suggest strong privacy and security practices related to smart home activities, but your post is fearmongering.

Man U v Liverpool is being played Saturday. Hopefully that shows off the stadium for them.

You may have been saying this, but MSV also owns Chop House and La Dolce Vita. 

 

Agree, Gratzi has way better food than Palio. Palio's solid, but not top tier.

 

Also agree on Pacific Rim - very good and on my list of top tier nicer places in AA. Really depends on the mood you're in.

Section 42, about 75 rows up. I have tickets with a few of my friends, and we've slowly moved more towards the center as everyone agrees to pay more over the years. For now, the Maize PSD is acceptable. 

Seats are good - relatively good view on the North endzone, but obviously not as good view on the South. We do get heavy sun in the early summer though. Bring sunglasses!

07/20/2018 - 11:46am "I don't like ruining…

"I don't like ruining someone else's enjoyment of the game by telling them how they should react - they bought their ticket and it is their right - so this is much more enjoyable for me as well."

 

So refreshing to hear someone take this approach. Hope you get to enjoy many more years!

I agree with everything you say, but for some reason I had this strange urge to downvote this post in pure sarcasm. But I refrained.

We talking A5 or A3 grade here?

07/16/2018 - 12:39pm What, you mean you don't…

What, you mean you don't obtain an investigative consumer report on an internet message board poster who declares he is a former amazing PG?

This is basically standard practice for me. I'm just waiting on outsidethebox to sign my FCRA authorization and disclosure.

07/16/2018 - 12:16pm Commenting can and should…

Commenting can and should play a very important role. And if you read the post analyzing Teske’s game you will see why I am so critical of outsidethebox-postingly. There is a very simple comment on Teske role in the offense, for a comment that outsidethebox is completely oblivious too. Anybody, and I do mean ANYBODY,  who is worth two grains of salt as a poster is all over this. As a person who has been a poster for a while-and posted well this is an unforgivable type of error...you NEVER overlook your comment in this type of situation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Additionally, yes I am not done, this same post encapsulates my criticism of mods...because this "outsidethebox" comment is not an exception-this is outsidethebox over and over. As a mod you either correct this error if it is correctable or you send the idiot to Bolivia. And to add further insult to injury here it is against a friggin, weak-assed offseason basketball post. For cryin' out loud-learn how to attack this-the weakest type of post ever!!!!!!!

Okay, I'm done :)

Was after my time, but with Spots and BTB I’m not surprised. And the reviews here seem pretty mediocre.

07/15/2018 - 10:03pm Telling someone what they…

Telling someone what they want to hear can often lead to bad decisions. 

 

Totally agree a 5’11” PG needs development and to show he can play in the NBA. Getting playing time at OSU could showcase him but the jury is definitely still out on their ability to develop players. 

07/15/2018 - 1:33pm Guy got promised PT and keys…

Guy got promised PT and keys to the offense. In basketball that can matter if you’re looking to go early.

There are obviously some counter points (e.g., a coach consistently developing guys to be first round material and them getting drafted there, and consistent deep tournament runs) but I get it.

i don’t buy the OSU resurgence that much. Nice run last year, but team was so reliant on Bates-Diop. He’ll get to showcase himself for sure, but good luck.

07/06/2018 - 12:24pm I love wings, but the sauce…

I love wings, but the sauce is the killer if you're trying to watch what you intake. I've found that developing a good rub you like is key. Find your flavor profile: italian/garilic herbed; bbq; etc. You can find or make good rubs that make wings taste delicious without the need for sauce.

 

Then, I go one of the better cooking methods: smoking, grilling, air fry, or pressure cook, and they come out great.

I'm not a fan of anything outside of the major shows.

 

I have built in my expectation that the 4th is annoying to deal with as, but someone in our sub lights them off practically the entire months of June and July, and usually until at least midnight. It is awful.

07/05/2018 - 12:28pm You love fireworks and Colin…

You love fireworks and Colin Cowherd.

 

I'm pretty confident you and I would not be friends.

At least when I go to Vegas my dog doesn't run around barking and waking everyone up at 1 am.

That's a fine overall point for a larger non-Michigan audience, so I understand where you're coming from there.

But you know you're going to get some flak when telling someone to google a straw man argument when you really need to do it yourself, right?

06/26/2018 - 12:13pm I haven't read the case, but…

I haven't read the case, but it's an antitrust issue - at a very high level, the issue is that it's multiple entities (schools) agreeing to do something together that arguably restricts the market. 

06/26/2018 - 12:11pm Ah, that's the other name…

Ah, that's the other name that I'd tie to it. Didn't realize he was at RSHC so that makes total sense.

06/26/2018 - 12:07pm Regarding the law firms,…

Regarding the law firms, they are both Chicago-based law firms, who also have offices in Ann Arbor. Schiff Hardin has been involved in a lot of the NCAA's recent antitrust cases (O'Bannon, Keller, etc.), and RSHC is a spin-off from Schiff Hardin when a number of attorneys left to start their own firm a few years ago.

Wierenga in particular from Schifff Hardin (AA office, 2x UM grad) has been around sports antitrust for a while and is a pretty well known name if you follow that type of thing (who doesn't?). He's a common name to see around NCAA antitrust cases at this point.

I for one am shocked, shocked, that the moral bastion that is James Franklin would ever negatively recruit...

You read an article and then made some assumptions. Cool.

I hold a similar opinion and criticisms as him, and still don’t care for Bluey.

Some dads are more talented cooks than other dads.

Im hungry for that dinner, but sure as hell knew the last dad wasn’t going to be the one serving it to me.

 Well said. He also has had some blatantly factually incorrect posts in his rapid-fire defense of everything he says. Add to that the Beilein history and he doesn’t get any sympathy from me.

I actually agree with the overall (high-level) criticism on recruiting, but recognize winning helps so that could change. 

Also, he is the perfect example of tone and messaging mattering. Guy’s personality is so abrasive he couldn’t sell a water bottle to someone dying of the thirst in the desert.

So... explain how YOU know which offers are commitable and which aren’t, as he asked you to do and you ignored to instead attempt to give a lecture nobody cares about.
