  1. No iPhone users in my house
  2. I recently got this router: https://www.amazon.com/Linksys-Dual-Band-Wireless-MU-MIMO-EA7300/dp/B01JOXW58I/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1488243247&sr=1-4&keywords=linksys+router Do I like it? Well.. I have Spectrum (Time Warner) and I pay $60ish a month for internet. Had a 10 year old router that was getting me 26Mb/s and figured it was time to replace it. So I put in this router and BOOM.. instant 265Mb/s. It covers the whole house and broadcasts 4 networks (regular and 5G private and guest). Great router.
  3. Right. But CNN is making it look like it's about the ratings. Falling right into the trap.
  4. In general I'm on the media's side with all of this. Trump and his administration are a dumpster fire headed down a path of creating a dictatorship. And my primary news source is CNN... But... CNN is not reporting this well, basically kicking and screaming. It's really easy to say... CNN, you guys are just upset we only let in the traditional major TV networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) because it hurts your ratings. So you create your own ratings by kicking and screaming about it. Grow up and get over yourselves, you didn't make the list.
  5. ...if you are concerned about the media in this country, please take this survey...
  6. I think they actually want it that way. It fits with the culture of basketball, starting with pickup games and playground legends. When you think about the best NBA players ever there is a mythical/superhero aspect to them as athletes. At the highest level it will always be about the best players.
  7. Had the Pixel XL since it came out and 7.X has been very good to me, no issues.
  8. Can someone explain *why* the NBA is entertaining? Because it is basketball and there are people who like to watch basketball. Can someone explain *how* the NBA is entertaining? It's not very entertaining IMO. They need to make a lot of changes to make it entertaining. NCAA is so much more fun to watch.
  9. For sports I don't know why you wouldn't vote Pacific. No sport playing in the continental US is ever on too early or too late. You can see every game. Generally everything is over by 9pm. Once in a great while you may need to be up until 11pm watching something. OK, one downside is you often miss the first quarter of MNF and TNF but I'll take that over staying up past midnight.
  10. The worst is Arizona because it's mountain without daylight savings. NFL games change from 11am to 10am during the season for one thing. Worse, you never know when the hell something is on TV. If a national network says a show in on at 8 Eastern / 7 Central then what time is it on in Arizona? If you are getting the east coast feed it could be on at 5pm or 6pm, depending on whether the rest of the country is in daylight savings. If you are getting the west coast feed it could be on at 8pm or 9pm. Living in Arizona you generally don't pay attention to daylight savings so it's not obvious if the rest of the country is on or off. Nice 4 hour window of confusion there.
  11. How does the room discount work? I just give them my player card at checkin? I haven't put in a lot of hours there and won't be doing much this trip either. Would they give me a discount at check-in based on my tourney win, assuming I'll be living in the poker room?
  12. Similar to "tackle football" or always saying "the national football league" Somehow, saying things long form is the in thing
  13. Staying at Aria this weekend with the girlfriend. Back to the scene of the crime - I won the $125 NL tourney there last November which was fun. Girlfriend doesn't gamble so that means getting flat out wasted the whole trip, but it'll be good to get away.
  14. Wow.. both girlfriend (IPA lover) and I hated it. The six pack lasted a week which is unheard of. Felt like a 12-pack ("Do I *have* to have one of these???")
  15. Had Sierra Nevada Tropical Torpedo this weekend, and that's up there. I like citrusy ales and IPAs. This was totally awful and tastes nothing like Torpedo or even an IPA.
