I just started playing again - when they updated to 1.0.4 (or 1.0.5, not sure) - I couldn't re-enter successfully. Initially, I blamed KER (my only mod) and that seems premature. I did have to "re learn" re-entry, particularly a simple suborbital hop. I looked for a Kerbal thread to bump and co...

My purpose of this thread is to detach policy and advocacy questions from the nuts and bolts of what is (and isn't legal) and other technical questions about firearms. Although a poliboard topic, the entire purpose is to remove argument and acrimony and merely educate and discuss what "is" - righ...View Topic - Replies (11)

| Coaching Changes|| Assuming Wilson leaves LSU, possible replacements? - Ace Midnight on 11/27/15 at 2:31 pm|
Caveat - I foresee a number of scenarios in which Wilson can be retained and LSU should make every reasonable effort to do so. However, at some point, the right OC or HC offer may finally turn his head enough for him to take his shot elsewhere. And I'm not talking about RB coach, necessarily, bu...

Inspired by Powerman's "fauxvertime" tax credit thread. Obviously the progressives want the home mortgage interest deduction gone. It is wildly popular, but a key point of class warfare they want to pursue. So, I'm fine with it being gone - IF we knock a lot more out of the code: EITC? Is...View Topic - Replies (14)

Just a suggestion - it may cut down on duplicative threads being started, which is now generating some RAs (not by me, FTR). It is a Louisiana story that has gone national. Maybe for a day or two then re-evaluate?...

Because of the timing of this, during his lifetime, the LSU-Bama game was held, ON his birthday no fewer than 7 times, or approximately 10% of all of his birthdays. And aside from that, the game with within 5 or 6 days, either way, of his...View Topic - Replies (5)

Looking for recommendations - budget is $500 - it will go with a new Skylake build next month. It will be paired with either top tier Nvidia or AMD card (or 1 behind).
