| Fantasy Sports Board|| Browns running back going forward... - thetempleowl on 9/19/14 at 9:49 am|
So, tate will likely be back after the bye for them.
Someone already has tate, and I currently hold West. He did well for me last week. However, moving forward, is any back worth holding onto?
When tate comes back, is he going to be the man?
I have heard some say that Crowell seems to b...

So, lets discuss the positives and negatives of both Asiata and Mckinnnon.
Lets first discuss what we know about Peterson. He is out for now, with the vikings saying they can bring him back.
For what? First, his hearing is set for October 8. I happen to think that Peterson and lawyers will ...

First of all, I guess we have to figure out how long Peterson is going to be out. It is a complex issue and difficult to figure out because the NFL is so freaking psycho when it comes to stuff like this.
Regarding the ray rice thing, he originally got a two game suspension and then, after the vi...

sixteen team league.
So we are starting some not very good running backs. I do however have a couple of nice picks in Carlos Hyde and Jeremy Hill.
Does Jackson still have it? He got a decent number of carries, but they starting passing way too much.
He ended up with 52 yards. I still...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| best young players going forward this year... - thetempleowl on 9/5/14 at 11:35 am|
Jeremy Hill, Carlos Hyde, Justin Hunter, or Jordan Mathews. I can hold onto three.
Right now my team in a 14 team (qb,rb,rb,wr,wr,flex,te,kicker and defense) is
Jeremy Hill flex

Now before anyone says anything, first of all, understand that if you say yes, this will increase the cost of healthcare tremendously.
Perhaps I should say that this does increase the cost of healthcare for all.
Just an fyi, since Florida redid their statutes for accident coverage, do you re...
| Tech Board|| Most stable RAID - thetempleowl on 6/11/14 at 9:23 pm|
For large terabyte hard drives, raid five is not recommended.
This would be for an 8 drive 3tb per drive system.
So, we would be between RAID 1, 6, or 10.
RAID 1 would just be mirrored drives. You could combine these drives into one large drive with windows.
This would mean you lose...

At the end of the bronze age, there was a major collapse of society. This has been blamed on a multitude of reasons, but humanity in general took at least a step back after making large strides forward.
At the end of the roman empire, again the world was plunged into a second dark age. I find...

I think just about everyone can agree that this would be a good thing.
One can decrease a womans chances of developing a high risk lesion by 45% and all other types of lesions by about 35%. And it is easy.
Just vaccinate children against the hpv vaccine.

I have to tell you the idea of a leper colony in the us for what is still not a very well understood disease is fascinating. I understand it has pretty much closed down and is now used by the national guard with few if any people still on it.
The last thing I saw was a bbc article from 2010.

The ice storm damaged many trees and broke many branches, but some young cypress trees survived fine.
Some of the branches are not following their typical growth pattern but remain bent out at about a 90 degree angle.
I guess I have to tie them up to get them growing back to normal. Do I ...
