| O-T Lounge|| Snapchat - why use this app? - HurricaneDunc on 7/27/14 at 5:10 pm|
What age group is using Snapchat regularly? This wasn't around when I was in college and curious who is using it and really for what. Is this just an app to send nudes or do people actually use it to share normal pictures?
O, and get off my lawn. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| What's your goto pay fantasy football site? - HurricaneDunc on 7/12/14 at 10:32 am|
I'm trying to up my game this next season and I'm willing to pay a small fee to get access to whichever site has the best resources. I'd like to have both draft data / rankings / projections and during the season advice as well.
Anyone have one they have used and would recommend?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Best Site for College Pick'ems - HurricaneDunc on 7/6/14 at 11:55 am|
Anyone have recommendations for a good site to play College Pickems other than Yahoo? I've got a group that's been playing for a few years, but Yahoo has gotten terrible. Different number of games each week (which inherently makes some weeks more valuable than others), bad games selected, big games ...
| Food and Drink Board|| What to cook on BGE this weekend - HurricaneDunc on 5/29/14 at 8:59 pm|
Just got a BGE and trying to decide what to cook. Did burgers, a flank steak and ribs over Memorial Day Weekend. Not sure what to cook next. I'd love to do a pork butt or brisket but it's essentially just the wife and I eating (unless we decide to invite some friends over).
Anyone have any favor...
| Food and Drink Board|| Lump Charcoal and Kamado Style Grills - HurricaneDunc on 5/19/14 at 7:58 pm|
I will be the proud owner of a new Big Green Egg on Saturday. My wife went today to purchase it but didn't buy any charcoal when she was there. Obiovusly I can buy the BGE branded stuff but don't know if it's worth it or if any brand will do? Any recommendations?
Also, do I need to buy anything s...

Not starting this on the M/TV board as I'd like an answer now.
What were the bad guy /monster things in the movie with the big bodies and shrunken heads called? I'd tried searching in google for a picture but couldn't find one. Anyone know what I'm taking about?...
| Tiger Rant|| What is the ticket situation for the LSU/Wisconsin game? - HurricaneDunc on 4/6/14 at 3:57 pm|
I took a look at the Advocare website and it looks like you can only purchase both the kickoff and bowl game as a package. Anyone have an idea when the single game tickets will go on sale? Is there an allotment already set aside for each school? (I'm not a season ticket holder so I'll need to buy th...
| Food and Drink Board|| BGE or Primo XL? What are the pros and cons? - HurricaneDunc on 3/23/14 at 5:41 pm|
The wife has offered to buy me a nice grill for an upcoming birthday. I've narrowed down my choices to either the BGE or Primo XL, however I'm having a hard time finding very much of a difference between the two. After searching through some old food board threads, it sounds like the oval shape of t...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone have any experience with Uverse wireless receivers? - HurricaneDunc on 3/15/14 at 3:46 pm|
I am getting ready to switch from DirecTv to Uverse as they are offering a better 12 month deal at the moment. I have to select receivers and I am considering getting one of the wireless ones. I have a back porch that I wouldn't mind moving a TV out to occasionally. My only concern is the range of t...
| Money Talk|| Best tax prep software - HurricaneDunc on 1/25/14 at 7:44 am|
I typically use TurboTax because my income is relatively straightforward (no business or rental income). I would assume these softwares are pretty much the same. Any thoughts? Anyone have different results between two different systems?...
| O-T Lounge|| Tech Help: AT&T Iphone Unlock question - HurricaneDunc on 1/4/14 at 1:42 pm|
I am trying to sell my wife's old iPhone 4s and wanted to factory unlock it before selling it. I sent the request to AT&T and they confirmed it can now be unlocked (in 24hrs). The instructions they sent said to back the phone up, then reset the device, then restore. However, it's not clear to me how...
| Food and Drink Board|| Need a remoulade sauce recipe - HurricaneDunc on 12/24/13 at 12:15 pm|
I'm cooking some crab cakes as an appetizer for my meal tonight. I'd like to serve them with some remoulade sauce, but there appears to be hundreds of different variations and recipes out there. And it looks like I dropped the ball on picking up horseradish at the grocery store today.
| Money Talk|| Anyone using Roth 401k? - HurricaneDunc on 12/24/13 at 8:44 am|
My company began offering a Roth 401k option this past year. It appears to work the same as a Roth IRA, although I think (not sure) that the contribution limits are higher. To be honest, I haven't looked into it much but starting to think it could be a better option while I am theoretically in a low...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start: Lamar Miller or Mendenhall - HurricaneDunc on 11/28/13 at 7:06 pm|
Miller vs Jets
Mendenhall vs Eagles
Terrible matchup for Miller, although with Thomas out he's the only RB now. I'm afraid that he still won't put up more than 20 yards and the Dolphins will abandon the run.
Mendenhall is terrible, but Arizona loves him. He did get a TD last week.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to start at TE: Gonzo or Fleener - HurricaneDunc on 11/20/13 at 5:56 am|
Gonzalez vs Atl or Fleener vs Arizona. Standard league. Thoughts?...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Week 12 Trade: Gonzo for D Williams - HurricaneDunc on 11/18/13 at 7:35 pm|
I am hit hard by the byes next week. My only two RBs not on bye are Lamar Miller and Mendenhall. I've got Fleener who I can start in place of Gonzo. The other guy and I have agreed to make this a one week trade only, so I'll have Gonzo back for the rest of the season.
I don't like the RBBC situa...

I'm assuming he's sitting on his arse maybe reading the tiger rant since he only has 7 yards today. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Flex: Mendenhall, Kenny Stills, Brian Hartline? - HurricaneDunc on 11/17/13 at 10:03 am|
I play in a 12 team standard league. I've got James Jones riding the bench with the QB situation at GB.
I like Mendenhall's matchup against the Jags.
Hartline is playing against SD.
Stills is at home against 49ers.
Any thoughts? FWIW I'm leaning Mendenhall...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Brian Hartline or Kenny Stills? - HurricaneDunc on 11/10/13 at 9:23 am|
Hartline may have a good game with Revia covering Wallace. Stills has more upside against Dallas secondary, but is a big boom or bust type player. Thoughts?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Question - HurricaneDunc on 11/6/13 at 7:08 pm|
So I'll be cooking a gumbo on Saturday before the big game. I've prepared a turkey gumbo before using leftover Thanksgiving turkey, but never a "typical" chicken and sausage gumbo.
My question revolves around the chicken. Clearly I need both the meat and a broth. I'd really prefer to cook my o...

Both will be splitting time. Miller is playing NE. Randle is playing Det. ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trent Richardson for Tony Gonzalez - HurricaneDunc on 10/16/13 at 3:59 pm|
I'm weak at TE - have Jared Cook and Garrett Graham. At RB, I'd be left with Shady, Lamar Miller, Joseph Randle and Mendenhall.
I'm not much of a believer in Trent's upside anymore. Thoughts?...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade Offer: DeSean Jackson for T Rich - HurricaneDunc on 10/9/13 at 6:18 am|
12 team standard
Andrew Luck - QB
DeMaryius Thomas - WR
James Jones - WR
Shady - RB
T Rich - RB
Lamar Miller - RB
Garrett Graham - TE
Mendenhall - RB
Pierre Thomas - RB
Brian Hartline - WR
Thoughts? I feel like I'm weak at WR. ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Desean Jackson for T Rich - update - HurricaneDunc on 10/8/13 at 7:29 pm|
Eta: He countered with Desean Jackson instead of Cruz. Good trade with Vick out?
Standard league. 12 team.
Richardson's stock up with Bradshaw out for good, but Brown is already stealing TDs from him. And he can barely run more than 2 yards a carry.
I'm weak on WR, and still have Shady, ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| To start or sit Trent Richardson - HurricaneDunc on 9/22/13 at 11:22 am|
Can he really perform against SF with such limited knowledge of the play book? Seems like at best he'll be relegated to limited 1st and 2nd down non passing plays. Thoughts?
Eta: I'm starting Mendenhall or Lamar Miller in his place this week...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Anyone starting T Rich this week? - HurricaneDunc on 9/20/13 at 8:33 pm|
Shady is my RB1. Trying to decide between T Rich, Mendenhall, Lamar Miller and Pierre Thomas. I'd like to put one in the RB2 slot and one in the flex. I'm nervous against the niners Trent will be a bust.

Was listening to NPR on the way home, and there was an interview with some lady in the House Republican leadership. The reporter asked her multiple times why Republicans would risk shutting down the government to defund the ACA. All she could do was say "Republicans don't want that".
I'm not sure...
