| O-T Lounge|| Tech Board: Has anyone downloaded MS Office for iPad? - GFunk on 6/15/13 at 7:27 am|
Hearing its somewhat limited in features, and the $100 sub to Office 365 is gonna depress sales.
Anyone gotten into it yet who can provide a first impression?
Also, why did MSFT wait to announce this on a Friday? In a blog post? Zero fanfare and horrible timing with the weekend news cycle......

New construction. Just installed <than 2 weeks ago. Saw when we got home they just buried the line yesterday while we were gone.
No Internet or Cable when we got inside around 7. Called them. Said outage reported, no ETA on service restoration.
Went to dinner, back at 9, still nothing.

Hard to argue that between Ron Polk and Bertman, the impact on the conference and college baseball as a whole is hard to define.
Skip's gonna throw the first pitch Friday Night. Even after more than a decade away from the dugout, he's still such an impactful presence.
Congrats, Skip, and thank...

Used to be there was hardly any such thing as a "gravel" road in South Louisiana. No, down here we used seashells to make our gravel. Definitely something unique to the Gulf South, it was prevalent all over the southern part of the Boot.
But what happened to it? Nowadays nobody seems to use it a...

Three straight series sweeps, haven't played a bottom of the 9th in 6 SEC games at the Box.

This is a sabermetric-focused article on how the winning % for a given team tends to increase once you hit the 39th-at-bat of games mark.
Seems they did some analysis of game-breakdowns in MLB, and once teams hit 39 at-bats or more, the chances that they won the game increased noticably.
