| Tech Board|| Direct Tv Dvr Problems - elprez00 on 10/30/14 at 1:17 pm|
In the last two weeks, my DVR has been acting crazy. First, its not recording programs at the right time. Didn't record Walking Dead Sunday night, I had to set it to do so manually. Then, it keeps cutting stuff off. Watched South Park last night and The League, the duration shows correct but the rec...

I was in the car listening on the radio. Hawthorne was beside himself, said the ball was uncatchable given that it was intercepted. Was it as bad as he made it out to be?
DISCLAIMER BEFORE EVERYONE GOES NUTS.
I was not at the game, didn't leave early. Heading home from a family trip. Had to list...

2:53 mins. My goal was 3 hrs.
I'm now down 46lbs this year and accomplished something I never would've imagined I could do even a year ago.
Yes this is a not so subtle brag thread. Yes I might get the 13.1 sticker for my car. Suck it haters. :lol:...

OK so I bought it and finally got to watch it. Explain to me a couple of things:
- How was Charles still alive in the future?
- Why/When did he and Eric meet Logan in the airport at the end of Wolverine?
I get that Singer very craftily retconned the events of X3, but I'm confused as to how Char...

Reading FIGJAMs Ryder Cup stuff made me remember Phil was pretty vocally for golf returning to the Olympics, if I'm not mistaken. I happened to peruse over to check a couple of things out and noticed something pretty crazy.
First off, the Rio Olympics will open August 5th and close August 21st.

I made one of these and have it mounted to a rafter in my attic for a TV in my garage and as a backup for storms, etc. In Hammond, I get all NOLA stations and all BR stations. It cost me about $10 to make, and I didn't need to make...

Watching it for the first time in a long time, it still makes me laugh.
Remember the craziness that surrounded that movie when it came out? Only movie I've ever been to where they actually checked IDs at the entrance to the theater.
It's mild and tasteful compared to half the stuff that come...

I figure we've got enough OT badassess and real military flyboys to answer this.
When Maverick and Hollywood are up against Viper and Jester, they both break off and engage Jester while Viper flys off. Maverick breaks off and goes after Viper. Hollywood eventually loses the engagement to Jester ...

The first launch of the Saturn V rocket was in Nov of 1967. One year later, they sent men around the moon in one. Six months after that, they sent men to land on the moon in one.
We went from testing the most complex machine ever built to make sure it would work to landing human beings on the mo...

I just finished running ten miles for the first time. Ten. 1.0. Double digits. I'm very proud of myself.

No tinfoil hats necessary, and its been a very bad day.
But take a look:
- Russia is flexing its muscles in a very Soviet way
- Israel is invading Gaza
- The entire Islamic world is looking for an excuse to blow up the Jews.
- Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, ISIS, etc
Regardless of your politics...

First off: This is not a call out thread. I'm not hating on IB. You all should really dig into this on your own. You'll find out that he has a very valid point. I'd just like to hear his opinion (and others) on these questions, and perhaps it'll give people a chance to read more about options rather...

I went back and watched Enterprise recently, I did not watch it during its original run. The concept was intriguing, there are so many things they could have done with it. The cast wasn't terrible, I liked Scott Bakula as the captain.
I understand the ratings were shit, so they moved towards thi...
