Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

In honor of "talk like a pirate" day, I ask this riddle:

Q: What is a pirate's favorite letter of the alphabet?

A1: Ye might be thinkin' it'd be "R", but ye'd be wrong...
A2: A pirate's true love be the "C".

Re: Looking for PC case...

*update Oct. 2017* Sorry, our recently released G11310650-RT USB 3.1 Type-C module will not work in the TJ08-E. Good catch. Let's go with DPete27's suggestion of putting something in the 3½” bay of the TJ08-E or choose the taller TJ04-E, which is listed as compatible with that USB 3.1 Type C module.

Go Gators! Yes, hoping Dan Mullen's coaching can turn up the offense this year.

Re: Curved Screens General Impressions + How does it look with 3?

I’ve got a curved Samsung C32HG70 monitor. It’s not enough to be bothersome.

You keep the edges and the center of the screen closer to the same distance from your eyes, which can be helpful for folks with presbyopia and its accessories.

Re: NFL 2018

The NFL changed the overtime period from 15 minutes to 10 minutes of play in 2017, so it's not really a fifth quarter any more, but with 70 minutes instead of a regular game's 60 minutes, you would expect more plays in an overtime game.
