Re: "ErP Ready" BIOS/EFI setting & power options

That is something new............I do not think I have seen that setting before.
In the power or boot menu I always see the "keep off / last state" option as regards to power outages.
Now I gotta do some reading.

I am one of the ones that hits the road early anyway, but sorry for all the people who are missing the fireworks on the water.

Re: TR Fantasy Football 2018

If we get 10 people, i'd commission if need be.
I am thinking of between $25 to $100 per person, payable in advance.
Not too rich, but enough to make people pay attention to their team.

We can pay 1 to 3 places, what ever the league wants.


Just figure I'd toss it out.
