| Tech Board|| Dinosaur question - JawjaTigah on 12/8/14 at 8:22 am|
I am serious in asking this. Please don't flame. What does it mean "to torrent" and how/why is it done? Forgive my ignorance - I am 65 and remember life before the web - even before cable - even before color TV.
Am trying to catch up ...
| Tech Board|| Apple TV issue - JawjaTigah on 12/8/14 at 6:41 am|
I have an Apple TV box. It usually works fine. I set my iPhone to work as an alternate remote for it. Also worked fine. Recently the original remote has fallen into a black hole and disappeared. Now all of a sudden my iPhone remote app isn't communicating with the Apple TV box. It won't even turn th...

| Tiger Rant|| Gotta Hand it to Florida - JawjaTigah on 11/17/14 at 4:35 pm|
Unlike LSU, their powers that be saw Will Muschamp as a bad investment and acted quickly to make the necessary change. On the other hand, the bad investment here is going to linger like death by a thousand cuts, before the complacent LSU powers get their act together and do what needs doing....
| Tiger Rant|| 3 and outs/wasted possessions - JawjaTigah on 11/10/14 at 8:21 pm|
Why did LSU lose? Was it the QB? Was it the play calling? Was it the execution? Was it Bama's superior defense? Was it the refs?
A little considered factor might be the number of wasted possessions and 3 and outs we spent in the 2nd half. Suggests a totally non-productive offense, regardless of i...

| Political Talk|| Voter Suppression Tricks - JawjaTigah on 11/4/14 at 5:55 am|
The last card the desperate Dem strategists can play is the overconfident GOP voter suppression card. By this I mean making a GOP sweep so likely in pre-election news and op/ed pieces that marginal GOP voters become overconfident of a win, and some drop off without actually voting. Notice all the bi...
| Tiger Rant|| Bowl Projections and Names - JawjaTigah on 10/27/14 at 10:12 am|
Today CBS projects LSU to play Maryland in the Tax Slayer Bowl. The what? The Tax Slayer Bowl. It's a household word, no?
No! It isn't. And shouldn't be. I had to look the damned thing up on google to realize it used to be called the Gator Bowl, and that it is in Jacksonville, FL, the same state...
| O-T Lounge|| EMTs and Ebola - JawjaTigah on 10/15/14 at 7:49 pm|
Seriously. When people are very sick and unable to get themselves to the ER, they often call EMTs. For the sake of our brave first medical responders, what happens if they get a call from a symptomatic Ebola victim? Do they have protocols? How will they even know ebola is a possibility until it is t...

Saying they don't like ISIS/L Egypt, Saudis, Turkey, Iran are gradually inching away from meaningful opposition to the barbarians at the gate. Which is to say they are subtly inviting more US boots on the ground in Iraq by their lukewarm "support" for our new-found determination to defeat ISIS/L.
