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

Also if the Dolphins could kick Tom Brady in the ass one or two more times tonight, that would be spiffy

idchafee might be one of the biggest sports fans I know. We still text each other sports stuff a few times a week. More during the NBA season.

Re: NFL 2017

To ensure that they tank the rest of the season for a high draft pick, and as a sign of the toxic situations that develop in losing franchises, the Giants have benched Eli Manning in favor of Geno Smith, bringing Eli's 13-year record of 210 consecutive games started (second-longest in NFL history f...

Re: NFL 2017

The Packers front office and Mike McCarthy should really be ashamed of the "work" they've done to surround a Hall of Fame QB with talent. As in, they haven't surrounded a Hall of Fame quarterback with any talent at all. Instead, they've muddled along, relying on Rodgers to cover up their ...

I'm in an ESPN league with some friends. Every week but one, my opponent has put up the fewest points in the league that week, No wonder I'm 9-0. Everyone brings their D- game against me.

iOS or my car?

Howdy all Before iOS 11, whenever I activated Siri to send a text when my car was running, the radio bluetooth would read the message back to me. So I would say "Send a message to Mom: on my way" and Siri would reply "Your message says: on my way. Ready to send?" I would say &quo...

Re: Freaking scammers

My eBay boycott is alive and well in its 6th year. The way that site treats sellers is ludicrous. And if a site treats its sellers like that, they don't need my buyer money either.

Re: Microphone question

You can get an Alesis MultiMix 4-channel for about $100, which will mix two mics into one output. Two of those and 4 inexpensive unidirectional mics on short stands would cover the entire stage front, and then bring the two outputs into the main mixer. Total including some Monoprice cables: $500. h...

There are several options for student data management, including grades, attendance, etc. The district I work in (K-8) and the one my kids go to (K-8) use PowerSchool, which was owned by Pearson before they sold it off to focus on the PARCC cash cow. Its a decent solution, I guess. As a parent you c...
