  1. You know, I'm pretty sure I did see an african-american woman on crutches at the show, but afterwards. That's pretty neat.
  2. Does John Madden's Lunchbox still post here? I haven't been active here in years, but we went to see OMD a couple of nights ago and it made me think of him. They were suprisingly awesome for old dudes.
  3. On topic, I'll be voting for Bernie in CA but I'm sad that I think we're stuck with Hillary. I'm heartened that a genuine leftist has gotten as much traction as he has, though.
  4. It's been a while, what have I missed? A casual review of the past few pages seems to indicate that nothing has changed in the last couple of years.
  5. Hi guys, I've been gone for a long time. Glad to see some familiar faces still here.
  6. Spend some time with google patent search - https://www.google.com/?tbm=pts Search for as many keywords as you can think of that relate to your device. Be aware that if you can't find anything, it doesn't mean there isn't a relevant patent or published application out there, it just means you can't find it. If you find it, well, you saved yourself the cost of a search.
  7. I'm an IP attorney (biotech patents mostly) and did 10 years at one of the biggest big firms before taking an in-house gig at a little biotech company 2 years ago. I'm about 1000% happier here. I do all the stuff I like to do and none of the stuff I don't - if I never write another patent application it will be too soon - I send all that #### to outside counsel. My take home went down by about 20%, but if we make it to exit the stock should more than make up for it, and I'm optimistic we'll make it to exit. Frankly, even if we don't, the improvement in my quality of life is more than worth it.
  8. Where did you find this for 250? I played with the HP 14 today. I find the screen resolution to be terrible. Besides that, it seems very nice though. Thinking I want to go with the 11 inch with the better resolution. Although, is the HP the only data plan one? Got mine at amazon for 249 - but it looks like they jacked up the price. Blame Drifter.
  9. I have perfected these, but it works better with Aperol 1.5 oz rye, 1 oz amaro nonino, .75 oz aperol, juice of 1/2 small lemon or 1/3 large lemon Shake over ice and serve up with a lemon twist.
  10. I picked up the 4gb version of the C720 for $250. I usually have about 10 browsers up, stream sports, etc...not sure if 2gb is satisfactory for that, but memory aside, I really, really like this thing. Only thing I would change is the ability to make the screen more bright. I know it would impact battery life, but even max brightness is a little dim for my taste. Size is perfect, slim and lightweight. Battery life is very good. Speed is great. Fan is very quiet. Even with 10 browsers open and pushing it hard it doesn't get hot to the touch. 8.5/10 and definitely recommended. Yep, this is the one that I have. I like mine a lot too, seems like a tremendous value at $250.
  11. Acer C720 is perfect for couch based internet surfing. It is super zippy. For $250 new, I could not be happier. I'm probably going to use a wireless mouse most of the time because I generally hate touch pads. for those missing the page up page down, try alt-down arrow and alt-up arrow
  12. I have perfected the paper plane, after a lot of experimentation. 1.5 oz rye (I use Bulleit) 1.0 oz Amaro Nonino .5 oz Aperol .5 oz lemon juice shake over ice, strain, and serve with a lemon twist I used to make 'em with campari, but aperol works better.
  13. I ordered an Acer C720 from Amazon yesterday, though it's out of stock for now. Will report back when it comes in.
  14. I've known a lot of heavy smokers in my day. Many of them could smoke a ton of weed and function just fine. Others would roll around on the floor and giggle uncontrollably. There's a lot we don't know about the interaction between cannabinoids and the other psychoactives in pot and individuals' brain chemistry. I don't have any trouble believing that, for Assani, pot is a net benefit even if it would not be for many or even most other people.
  15. You should re-evaluate, Otis. You don't know as much about this as you think you do. Don't you think a bunch of poker pros are in a better place than you to judge whether or not it makes them better? It's their bankroll on the line.
  16. I am an IP attorney, and while not rendering specific legal advice to any particular person, I think the risk is very very low for including the salad line.
  17. Also in for a T-shirt. So, so awesome to see this take off.
  18. so cool to watch you execute on your dream, huge congrats!
  19. Making a pot of this today, pretty faithful to the recipe with a little chocolate added in.
