I know this has been attempted before and shot down. But I hope it gets more traction this time. Would love to be able to see a EPL match without having to go to Europe.
It also seems like they are trying to get every team to play in the States on one weekend. Am I reading that right? That would...
| Tech Board|| Home Media Server Suggestions - tgrgrd00 on 9/3/14 at 2:04 pm|
So what would you do?
I am interested in a Home Media setup. Basically something that will run XBMC and the likes.
The dilemma is I have a decent Dell desktop sitting around that I can add a few components (HDMI card maybe a stick of RAM) to and throw it in the entertainment center.

My league is still in semi final round. All this talk about fantasy championship week has me bummed.

Full status on PGA Tour next season by winning Web.com the finals.
He deserves his own thread for this. Winning the finals is bigger than just earning a card.
| Help Board|| Why did my Wells Fargo Warning get moved to Money Board? - tgrgrd00 on 10/11/12 at 2:50 pm|
WTF? I've been a member/poster here since 2004. I have seen many a worse thread than mine stay on the OT. It is a legit OT thread telling people to avoid Wells Fargo for their mortgage company.
I could understand it getting moved to the Hurricane Isaac board but that is gone.
I guess I shoul...
| Money Talk|| If your mortgage is with Wells Fargo...GET OUT NOW! - tgrgrd00 on 10/11/12 at 2:21 pm|
Wells Fargo purchased my mortgage a couple of years ago and I didn't think anything of it.
Well now I am paying the price. I don't care what you have to do but get rid of them!!!
If you have to make an insurance claim with them you are fricked. They will make it impossible for you to get you...

My next door neighbor is stuck in his attic and confirmed more people stuck in attic on Riverlands. That is about 5 miles from my house.
Media might catch on soon.
Going to be rough after we lost everything in Katrina too. Have a 3 week old and 4 year old. :yack:...
| O-T Lounge|| Any way to look up LSU graduates? - tgrgrd00 on 6/20/12 at 5:26 pm|
A friend of mine who lives out of state has asked me if there is any way to look up past graduates at LSU. Basically she works with a guy who says he graduated from LSU but she has some reasons to be suspicious of his claims.
This dude said he never went to a football game or any sporting event ...
| O-T Lounge|| Apple trying to ban Samsung Galaxy Tab - Update pg 7 - Hitler be Mad - tgrgrd00 on 5/19/12 at 10:43 pm|
Apple is trying to stop their competitors from releasing any products in the US. Apple is so far behind that they have to patent troll their competition until apple can catch up and release their new LTE phone.
I wouldn't be surprised to see them go after the sgs3 next since they already stopped...
| O-T Lounge|| I hate Apple with a passion! - tgrgrd00 on 5/15/12 at 8:05 pm|
Really? They think they invented clicking on a link to perform an action. Even worse is that some patent office agrees. What a bunch of fricktards. Was supposed to get this new phone tomorrow but Apples fricking arse has it held up in customs?
If I wanted to patent blinking I probably could.

I know he withdrew last week because of an injured back but it looks like he is in the field this week at The Transitions.
I guess the injury wasn't that bad or he is trying to play through it. Just asking because I have looked at pgatour.com etc and can't find anything....
