Worked in the Union for catering & the billiards room for six years in the mid 2000s. Mary was a very bright spot in 1310. She'll definitely be missed there.

I don't even remember why The Artist Formerly Known as Misopogon changed it, but I decided to keep it. I think it might have been the first one he did.

I'm sorry for your loss, Brian.

On a related note, small world. He played hockey at the cube on Miller Lite? Was it their D3 team? (I don't think they have a team in a different league as it is but still...)

I've probably played against him and not even realized it. From the sounds of it, he was one of the few people that could catch up to me after getting a step on them.

Downside: requires a twitter username to take part

I like it; if it were me in your place I'd try to implement a system for logged-in users of mgoblog to enter a post in a form and the 'bot' can "re"tweet it if it's viable, appending their username.

to everyone else, you really should have some form of noscript running. mgoblog isn't the problem - compromised ads are.

if you can't get noscript on your browser, then just disable javascript. Sure you lose some of your "rich browsing" experience, but that's worth it for the safety.

After reading this I did some research of my own; there's a lot of cases that have been ruled this way.

IANAL but this is pretty legit advice.

people might not like it, but this is pretty spot-on.

06/09/2011 - 12:08pm I understand where you're coming from

and I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

In this particular case, you cannot destroy game balance in favor of making Shoelace the fastest player on the field.

Don't get me wrong, he probably is in the real world. But games, particularly balanced ones, do not model the real world.

Things like that make the game unplayable or force all players into situations where they have to choose Michigan to be competitive - which again, is how it is in the real world - and that situation is unacceptable as far as game developers are concerned.

I run ABP on all computers I use, and have not had any issues arise. Leads me to believe the underlying problem doesn't lie in mgoblog's code, but in the advertisements - which are brought in from external sites.

edit: Also, anybody running a non-windows OS that claims superiority over others because they think they're immune to viruses, malware, etc is a) ignorant and b) kidding themselves.

05/31/2011 - 4:43pm Wait, you don't know?

Honky is a derogative term for white people.

you really didn't know that or did I miss the sarcasm?

My curiosity knows no bounds. I probably would've clicked through to that thread.

05/26/2011 - 6:28pm This is likely due to Smart

This is likely due to Smart Tweets for Pages randomly breaking. It's a facebook app that picks up tweets from a Twitter account and then posts them. Sometimes it randomly decides to stop working. Send Brian a note and he'll probably go through the necessary uninstall app/reinstall app process to get it working again.

The app breaks frequently enough to be frustrating; I just removed it from my page and I'm looking for something different now.

(Standard note from the above posters also applies: make sure you haven't hidden those posts.)

you do this every year, whether it's the wings or the wolverines. there's a lot of hockey to be played in this game. If you think a 2 goal lead in today's NHL is safe, you don't watch enough hockey.

05/09/2011 - 11:54am "trickeration"



There's already a word for this. It's "trickery." You don't have to invent a new word.

"catches the ball at its highest point."

I don't know if broadcasters know this, but I'll let the rest of the world in on a secret: during a forward pass, the ball's trajectory is usually a parabola. Catching the ball at *its* highest point is generally not an easy feat. A simple change of pronoun ("catches the ball at his highest point") would make the sentence not send ones ears through a cheese grater.

Does this phrase bother anybody else as much as it does me? Nothing against you dennisblundon. I just don't understand how this phrase became so popular when it's so obviously incorrect.

4. Does Title IX require that equal dollars be spent on men's and women's sports?

  • No. The only provision that requires that the same dollars be spent (proportional to participation) is “scholarships”. Otherwise, female athletes must receive equal “treatment” and “benefits”.

04/14/2011 - 4:19pm It's not about a gimmick

It's not about a gimmick offense that tries to put players in wide open spaces. It's one on one,beating your guy and nothing they can do about it.

And what, if you're spreading the D out they're just standing there while the O doesn't have to do any work to beat them to that wide open spot?

I mean, seriously?


I don't really care one way or the other what offense we run as long as it gets the job done, but the implication that you don't need to do anything in a spread offense is just asinine.
