Maybe I'm worrying about nothing, but I'm concerned about this guy reporting the phone lost/stolen and me ending up with a blocked IMEI.

Thinking about getting a second machine for the wife and kids, as sharing is becoming more and more difficult.
Basically, they need to surf the web (95% of the time) and do homework assignments, but they should be able to accomplish this using google and MSFT web apps and cloud storage.

Last year I started a thread asking if this should be a mainstream holiday. Of course, I got a lot of ridicule but seriously, it's the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.
I think we celebrate things that are more trivial than that. So to all, Happy Summer Solstice, enjoy the outd...

I (like others) used to criticize him for being a douche, but I have to admit, he's been saying and doing the right things over the past few months.
I'm watching his post-mini camp practice interview and he's not irritating me like he used to. He's showing humility and a respect for the game tha...

I'm buying a new construction and the lender did an appraisal about a week ago, but the house was not 100% complete (floors were not in place). The lender just emailed me saying he ordered another appraisal now that the house is finished.
Is this normal? The first appraisal was $400, which I hav...

| O-T Lounge|| Should the Solstices be Holidays? - ZereauxSum on 6/21/13 at 10:45 am|
I know it is for pagans, but it actually seems like something worthwhile to celebrate in the mainstream:
Summer Solstice: First day of summer, longest day in northern hemisphere.
Winter Solstice: Shortest day of the year, which means we get more daylight hours (well, minutes) going forward.
