03/06/2018 - 11:24pm Painter's presser quotes

Painter's presser quotes remind me of Don Brown's. Wonky and detailed, fun to read for the really interested.

That's my brother in law's brewery! Glad you like it!

Blue Pan Pizza. Owned by Jeff Smokevitch. Great detroit style pizza. He only has a small tv though. They're probably also not open at 10AM.

whole new world is my karaoke JAM. It's right in my voice range and I can kill it.

04/30/2015 - 12:59am Writing "title says it all" then writing MORE in the body.

title says it all. There. See? Did the title REALLY say it all? How stupid.

03/12/2015 - 1:48am Car guys don't drive audis

Car guys don't drive audis and land rovers (unless they're pre-1990). Car guys drive weird rare things that don't usually work and don't care what you think about their tiny impractical underpowered death trap.

07/06/2014 - 8:29pm Saying they taste the exact

Saying they taste the exact same is like saying all pizza is the same. They both have crust, sauce, cheese, toppings, but no, they are not the same.

I can't help but feel like GR3 is soft. He had an ouch-y back and went out for the night. Stauskas rolled an ankle and went all Sugar Bowl Molk on it, despite it totally throwing off his jump shot and defense.

I think of steak as a cut of meat you grill. You don't grill prime rib if you want it to be good.

11/09/2013 - 12:03pm Filet is steak for old

Filet is steak for old people. Soft and flavorless.

Ribeye is the steak of choice if you want a thick cut flavorful steak. Skirt is the best if you want flavor above all.

08/21/2013 - 3:05pm Every time I see the ball

Every time I see the ball pitched to denard I expect him to slow up and chuck it deep. I guess that's not in the cards with his elbow injury... but one can dream.

If Fox Sports 1 does not turn into Terrance and Phillip, I will be surprised.

It looks like the video was filmed through two fence pickets. Why don't people turn their phones sideways?

06/27/2013 - 11:11am I have never had cable in my

I have never had cable in my house. I subsist on streaming sports and... uh... other data methods for non-live content. It's not great, but I am a cheapskate. I also go to bars to watch other games, which isn't so bad but sort of negates the savings!

06/25/2013 - 12:53pm I was lining up the cold cuts

I was lining up the cold cuts on the couch next to me but as I was stacking them, they kept falling into my foot bath!

Oh wait, Bunyan, not bunion.

06/14/2013 - 5:08pm also, if their "computer" is

also, if their "computer" is "dying" it would probably be best to just pull the hard drive and take files off it when it's not booted on that drive. 

It could be that their hard drive is starting to get corrupted and throw bad sector errors, in which case, DON'T BOOT THE COMPUTER. Pull the drive and hook it up to a newer, stable computer as a non-booted hard drive and transfer the files to another hard drive.

If the power supply is unstable or the computer is just too slow, you should pull the hard drive.

Have them pull the hard drive and send it to you (well-packed and cushioned) and do the work on it that way. Less headache for you, more secure, better chance of recovering files.

06/14/2013 - 5:00pm join.me

I think join.me is the easiest one I've used. You generate a code on the sharing computer and then give that to the remote user, who enters the code. It then "just works."

Chrome remote desktop will make you log in to chrome with your google account, which, if it's not your computer, sucks because then that chrome installation (for the windows account) will be tied to your account until you logout in chrome (not just logout of google web account). 

RDP (built-in) is ok in that most windows computers have it but it is fiddly.

06/14/2013 - 4:46pm Some things: you need to

Some things: you need to forward a port on the router, 3389 by default, you can change it if you want. RDP without network level authentication (NLA) is pretty insecure, and I don't think windows below windows 7 have NLA in their RDP server. 

To get a secure RDP without windows 7+ then you can tunnel it over SSH. This is probably out of your wheelhouse though, so I'm going to leave it at that.

Over internet, you should be able to just give an internet-facing IP after you forward the port. (go to www.whatismyip.com on the one you're trying to share, or remote login to)

06/12/2013 - 1:09pm What an odd number. His

What an odd number. His salary is probably lower, which is bolstered by grants and then the weird 524.01 probably came from something that was categorized as pay.

06/07/2013 - 5:46pm Good choice, but the OP

Good choice, but the OP should know that they are sour beers (or half-sour, depending on which one you get).

A vine of a vine? I think we've entered the nexus of the universe.

06/03/2013 - 1:03pm Honestly all automakers make

Honestly all automakers make decent cars now. Save for the penalty boxes, all cars nowadays are built using the most modern manufacturing processes and controls. They can't afford not to. Gone are the days when assembly line workers would hammer misshapen panels to fit. 

Ford's cars are all basically designed in Europe now (fusion, fiesta, focus, escape, cmax are all originally Ford Europe's designs). So are Chrysler's, they took Fiat's platforms for their cars. GM's making less drastic moves but their mechanicals are as reliable today as they were years ago (car may have rusted to dust but the engine runs smoothly). 

To the OP, I think you should look at some wagons, or even minivans. There was just a user's review on the cmax, basically said it's a fine car but he would've preferred the Passat TDI. http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/2013-ford-c-max-the-not-jalopnik-review-510999801

As an aside, I would go to VW keeping in mind that their electrical systems are notorious for their undiagnosable errors and some of their suspension components such as control arms and joints are weak. Caveat emptor and so forth.

You really need to be looking at something that will hold your whole potential family. So look at wagons and minivans.
