    And in other news-
    [url<]https://www.digitimes.com/news/a20181002PD213.html[/url<] "The yield rates were unsatisfactory earlier in 2018, with substandard chips due to the low yields flooding the industry supply chain." This is the reason to avoid the Kingston's, Adata etc. If it's cheap-there's a reason........... Would possibly add WD green and BX500 to that avoid list as well....

    I’m not sure that it’s useful to not-see an ad, if it’s still consuming screen space, consuming bandwidth, and loading all the viruses that it may carry. More importantly, in the case of TV and/or Youtube commercials, they’re still consuming time. Spending three minutes seeing a black screen instead of seeing an ad is not an improvement. What people want to see if the actual content.

    I was going to have a Taco Tuesday, but stuff came up, so now I’m having a Taco Thursday.

    Can I vote for both as a result?

    [quote<] What's the most delicious way to use Velveeta cheese? [/quote<] I assume the answer is to throw it in the garbage?

      That is no way to treat fromage. Besides, it tastes great on a Tito’s Taco.

        9.3% of lactose? I’ll pass.

      Fuck no. Mix it with Ro-tel and make delicious dip.

      If you don’t have Ro-Tel then, yes, throw it in the garbage.

    Everybody knows Thursday is Thirsty Thursday, which is half-off domestic beer night at the local minor league baseball affiliate.

    This is not right:

    Cat pictures 1,760,000,000
    Dog pictures 4,930,000,000

    TR needs to help fix this by posting more cat pictures
