To be fair I normally bulk order. I always need lightening cables. Even one or two extras saves you on shipping.

Re: Help me understand, why is there a sport section?

OK I'm wondering why there is a sport's section on a geek site? After all true geeks and nerds have a strong disdain for people that like or play sports, especially football and wrestling. Can you guys clear this up for me? Holy effing moly! WTF!? Is there anyone that you don't have an agenda again...

Re: Greyed our iPhone icons

Before I'd reset the phone I'd try a re-sync with iTunes and a hard reset first. If you have a pretty current back-up in iTunes I'd also try pushing that to the phone also.

Re: College Football 2017

Yes an 8 team playoff would be nice. In fact the bowls are already there. And those stadium owners could get a winfall if they would do this. You could even rotate the feeder bowls for this.

In either case /GODAWGSSICEMWOOFWOOF 8)

Also, if you are using a drip coffee maker, proof your grounds - with the coffee in the filter, but before you close the door, slowly pour about 30 ml (1 oz.) of cold water over the grounds and let them sit for a few minutes.

I have the Civilian Sig P250. And while it's nice and very modular it's not all that. Mine is a .40 and I usually carry it in subcompact mode. Very rarely do I go full size. The modular system is neat but if you are not careful you could easily mess up the spring of the trigger and firing mechanism....

Re: The iPhone got forked!

Also FaceID gets better over time as it learns your facial nuances. Its why you can use it in low light situations and with unique situations like wearing a hat, glasses, beard. You're more likely to have false positives early on after setting it up then you are after using it for a few days/weeks/m...
