[quote]I don't want 12 months of beach weather[/quote] Amen to that. In an ideal world, I wouldn't want any months of beach weather. I heard about a guy who was truly living my dream. He taught ski lessons here during our winter and then went to New Zealand to teach ski lessons during their winter....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]You mean other than the fact that a run expectancy is greater to not bunt than it is to bunt? [/quote] Run expectancy is basically the same as expected value of a decision and is not the same thing as the probability of scoring one or more runs. The latter is what you are more concerned with...

re: Guitarists what amp are you using? - MountainTiger on 3/24/17 at 10:10 am
I have a few... My practice amp, for when I'm feeling lazy, is a Fender GDec 30. This is a solid state modeling amp. It's good for practice because I can get a bunch of different sounds just by turning a knob. The best-sounding amp I have is a 40 watt Marshall JCM2000. It runs on a quad of EL8...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Early signing period for football a terrible idea - MountainTiger on 3/23/17 at 6:43 pm
There's probably a good reason for it but can somebody tell me why there needs to be a signing period at all? Why can't we just let them sign their LOI when they're ready to commit?...

[quote] Golf is more fun to watch without Tiger. It is right now with a plethora of young talented golfers. [/quote] No doubt. Golf is really exciting right now with guys like Rory, Day, Spieth, DJ. But I think it was better before Tiger too. You had a whole bunch of guys who could win o...

Golf is more fun to watch without Tiger. Yeah I get that when he was a his peak, he did amazing things. And that in itself is fun to watch. But he also took away a lot of the drama that comes with more parity. Close tournaments are more fun than runaways....

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - MountainTiger on 3/21/17 at 2:46 pm
I got the Electric Brewery panel. Yeah, it's ridiculous how much it costs. You can probably cut some corners without a lot of loss in functionality. For example, you could probably get by with just 2 PIDs. I thought about doing some sort of Raspberry Pi controller but I knew that would turn into yet...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
