OK, so I've had this system (BDV-N790W) for about 2 years. Never used to have a problem with it at all. Then probably 6 or so months ago I started having static/white noise problems. I had my cable going through the HDMI input of the receiver, which was fine, but I would occasionally unplug the o...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Anybody taking a late round flier on Percy Harvin? - TheShwenz on 8/24/13 at 3:24 pm|
I grabbed him in the last round. What the heck, right? As of now there's no official time table on him, but he could be back as early as week 6. Could end up paying huge dividends...otherwise, w/e it was the last round...

Anyone ever get big time spoilers when browsing through Netflix? Maybe it's just the device I'm using it on because the format isn't like this on every device...Watching it through my bluray player and whenever you finish an episode of a show, it shows a preview of the next episode with a plot summ...

Saw one of these bad boys cruising the streets in Berlin this past summer. Anyone wanna chip in for it? Maybe deck it out in LSU shite and cruise around on gamedays? It's an affordable $40,000...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone have or buy the Microsoft Surface Pro? - TheShwenz on 3/22/13 at 5:25 pm|
It looks like it's the best reviewed laptop convertible (which is basically a hybrid laptop-tablet). I'm gonna go by BestBuy this weekend to play with one, and I'm considering getting one to replace my current laptop(whose best days are behind it) and my current tablet. I'm curious if any of the O...

Anyone have any experience with both?
Looks like I'm getting a new phone for christmas and these two top Consumer Reports. I've looked at all the specs and watched some youtube videos trying to compare them, but it's really splitting hairs trying to contrast them with most of the features - on...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| TE to grab off the waiver - TheShwenz on 11/29/12 at 5:01 pm|
Jacob Tamme/Joel Dreesen
I've got Heath Miller, but until Big Ben comes back I kinda want some insurance. It's PPR
Rudolph seems to have the most upside, but he's randomly posted some goose eggs and they play some tough defenses coming u...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Evaluate this trade...I'll evaluate yours after - TheShwenz on 11/14/12 at 2:06 pm|
It's 12 teams, .5 PPR. I still have Arian Foster at RB. Somebody dropped Maclin and I scooped him up on the waivers last week, so I'm not really concerned about giving him up. The rest of m...

Chances Foles starts next week and continues to favor throwing Maclin's way? A fantasy revival for him would be pretty nice...
| Tiger Rant|| Student gate question - TheShwenz on 10/31/12 at 5:18 pm|
I have some friends trying to sell their student tickets and I have some graduated friends who are interested. The non-students would need to use somebody's student ID to get in. Question is:
1. What are the chances the scanners at the gate actually check and/or care that it's not their ID?
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Guess my record - TheShwenz on 10/29/12 at 11:05 pm|

QB: Big Ben, Cam Newton, Ryan Fitzpatrick
RB: Arian Foster, Adrian Peterson, Alex Green, Brandon Bolden
WR: Larry Fitz, Mike Wallace, Steve Smith, Andre Roberts
TE: Jason Witten, Jermichael Finley

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Pick 2 RBs please - TheShwenz on 10/25/12 at 11:09 am|
Doug Martin tonight @ Vikings
Michael Turner @ Eagles
Stevan Ridley @ Rams
All 3 mediocre RBs on the road vs tough defenses. Really not sure here....
| Tiger Rant|| The only thing we can do as fans... - TheShwenz on 10/20/12 at 11:51 pm|
... is to spend this bye week drinking honey, going running to build our endurance, doing some vocal exercises, and scheming good ways to sneak whiskey into Death Valley so we can bring our fricking A-game on November 3rd.
Leave the coaching, game-planning, etc. to the team.
Yeah yeah yeah, Bam...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Doug Martin or Mikel Leshoure - TheShwenz on 9/24/12 at 12:20 pm|
Being offered a trade that would involve me getting either Martin or Leshoure. Who should I go with?
Leshoure seems to have more potential for points, but its risky with the uncertainty of who starts in Detroit. Tampa Bay offense just seems to suck, but Martin gets the majority of touches...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Monday night GB v. Seattle - TheShwenz on 9/23/12 at 11:19 pm|
I don't see a thread about this yet so here we go:
In one league I'm up by 28.5 and I have Mason Crosby, and he has Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. What are my chances? I'm hoping Seattle plays tough and GB settles for some FGs...but any TDs from A-Rod to Nelson will be killer.
Side Note: In...

Anyone ever visit this site? It's full of useless and random crap, but some of it is awesome.
Here's a couple badass items if any OT ballers have a couple thousand dollars laying around:

How great was this game? First (and only?) game I ever played with loads of cussing, nudity, blood and gore, hilarious movie parodies...everything you could ever want. Also not bad gameplay either. I remember the Matrix-esque lobby level being awesome. Pretty fun multiplayer too.
Anyway I jus...

I'm in law school now so that really kills my free time and desire for casual reading, but during the summer I plan on getting through a few books I've been wanting to read. But I'm kinda torn on whether I want the actual books or do the whole e-reader thing.
I know E-readers are more convenien...

Is it so much to ask EA to get their heads out their asses for a little while and fix the damn website. It's been horrible for weeks now. It has screwed me on a couple recruits because it decides to mess up in the middle of phone calls....
