| Tech Board|| Thoughts on these laptops? *Update, bought one* - rintintin on 12/4/14 at 2:23 pm|
My gf wants a cheap laptop for Christmas for basic stuff like web browsing, streaming movies and music, and basic word programs.
I'm looking in the $200-$300 range, and there are so many options I don't even know what to look for.
How do these options look?

And to everyone who said they needed to stop prolonging the announcement and just get it over with, I hope this is what you wanted.
This was the worst possible way to make this announcement. Wait till hundreds of protestors are bussed in from out of town. Wait till they start showing signs of agi...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Very low end RB situation, I need to start one - rintintin on 11/23/14 at 9:44 am|
Yes my RB situation is dire.
.5 ppr league
-Thomas is coming off an injury in an always up for grabs Saints offense.
-Tate was released, but picked up by Minnesota and could see significant touches in a depleted Vikings backfield.
| Tech Board|| Laptop under $400 recommendations please - rintintin on 11/21/14 at 8:39 am|
My gf wants one for Christmas. She doesn't do anything elaborate, no gaming or anything, just a nice laptop for everyday tasks, streaming media, typing reports, etc.
There's so many options out there I don't even know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated....
| Tiger Rant|| AJ is not JJ... - rintintin on 11/17/14 at 12:44 pm|
...at least in demeanor. Although the play is similar, it's hard not to root for Jennings. He admits mistakes, admits bad play, and at least tries to rally the team with positive emotion on the sidelines.
JJ was just not very likable all around. He never admitted to playing bad, and was almost c...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Welker or Hawkins? - rintintin on 10/16/14 at 7:20 pm|
Welker just isn't seeing the targets with so many other weapons, although Hawkins has stunk it up the last 2 games. I have no other options. Do I hope Manning finally starts targeting Welker again, or do I hope Hawkins can capitalize against Jacksonville?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Is Welker worth starting? - rintintin on 10/16/14 at 8:44 am|
Until he starts getting some looks? His first couple games back were decent, but 1 target last week?
I don't have many other options, I would have to start Hawkins or find a waiver wire pickup. I'd just hate to sit him and then he busts out....

Not sure what direction I want to go here, but everything is up for discussion.
I've been feeling pretty unmotivated, bored, lost, in a funk, whatever you want to call it, lately. I'm really just bored with life right now. I don't think I have a boring life though, and many people would be envio...

Why do I all of the sudden have ad videos playing almost non stop when I'm on here? Are these TD ads, or am I getting some other junk ads? Enterprise, WWII museum, and some other ads are always playing at the bottom and side of the page. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| I need 21 from Kaep tonight, how likely is this? - rintintin on 10/13/14 at 9:16 am|
He's scored 21 in 3 out of 5 games in my league. Haven't watched St. Louis at all this year, how is their D, and how likely am I to win?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Wheaton or Hawkins? - rintintin on 10/2/14 at 2:21 pm|
Who do you think will be more valuable going forward in a 14 team .5 ppr league.
This would be my 3rd wr option, and will only play during bye weeks or injuries. We have a small bench so in my current position I can only keep one. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| TE help! Will Vernon Davis play Sun? - rintintin on 9/25/14 at 5:21 pm|
I have Larry Donnell (NYG) as my backup and he's playing tonight. Do I start an unreliable TE tonight with a supposedly bad TE matchup against the Redskins, or do I risk it and wait till Sunday to see if Davis plays?...
| Tiger Rant|| Chavis and constructing a Defense (O-line and D-line related) - rintintin on 9/22/14 at 9:41 am|
Although I tend not to overreact after losses, this particular loss and how it was accomplished has me a bit nervous. When was the last time LSU was manhandled at the line on both sides of the ball like that? It seems we are constructing a team that doesn't suit our football philosophy.
In the p...
| O-T Lounge|| Excessive grocery baggers - rintintin on 9/16/14 at 11:49 am|
One of my biggest pet peeves. I just left the grocery with 6 items. How many bags did I get? 6. A bag for every fricking item.
I usually get paper or I'm prudent in telling them to load them up, but wasn't paying attention this time.
I can't stand double baggers either. I've never had a bag b...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Marcus Wheaton or Terrance Williams? - rintintin on 9/11/14 at 8:29 am|
This would be my 2nd wr and are my only options. 14 team league, .5 ppr, with very few bench spots, and I have Welker molly'ed out on the bench.
I started Williams last week and he had a decent game, but only because he caught a meaningless TD at the end of the game. Plus Romo was horrible.
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| This was Atl's Superbowl - rintintin on 9/7/14 at 3:35 pm|
Although it's only the first game, after last season they needed this game for their confidence for the rest of the season. They played with so much emotion.
I'm not that mad actually. We're better than them, and they know it. We'll beat them by 2 TD's in the dome.
The defense played horribly...
| Tiger Rant|| Let's give some praise to our secondary - rintintin on 8/31/14 at 12:30 pm|
[quote]Tanner McEvoy 8/24 50 yards 0 Td 2 Int 6.8 QBR[/quote]
I know Wisconsin is a run oriented team and their QB was untested, but that stat line above is just atrocious. Give credit to our secondary, who could've been exposed considering our run defense was getting gashed most of the game and ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Welker owners, how worried at you? - rintintin on 8/27/14 at 8:30 am|
Usually a concussion is no big deal, and a player will not miss significant time. But with this being his 3rd in less than a year, coupled with the NFL being extremely cautious with concussions now, how worried are you that he will:
a) miss significant time?
b) be less productive due t...
