      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Apple TV - anyone use it?

    one thing apple tv lacks is an easy way to install kodi. you need to jailbreak it. look at android tv solutions as well. they have all the same apps as apple tv and aren't locked down.
  2. Graphene Infused Carbon.

    i doubt we'll see any practical use any time soon. it seems these days nothing happens with research and new discoveries. graphene was discovered in the 60s, but nothing done with it until a few years ago. and it's not in mass use yet. battery tech? seems there is a new breakthru every few months. still waiting for the battery the size of a shoebox with the energy density of gasoline that weighs less than helium. they keep promising crap like that.
  3. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I think he means well but doesn't understand that rather than adding to the conversation it has the opposite effect. he didn't understand the mild hint that it was annoying as fuck. now he's on ignore with the likes of woody, cliffie, and meli.
  4. the grand tour premieres this week

    you are 7 episodes behind. binge watch and catch up because.... jeremy does a thing richard does a thing james does a thing
  5. Tablet / Laptop battery usage while shut down.

    if you leave all the radios on battery life will be vastly reduced. turn off gps, bluetooth, and wifi when you are not using them.
  6. Free Photo Hosting Site???

    Imgur is probably the best one for hotlinking. Doesn't even have to be your pic.
  7. Car Warranty Anarchy

    If the warranty came with pre paid scheduled maintenance it would be worth it.
  8. Backup Camera

    As long as you also have the reverse beeper when you go to use it.
  9. A debate without conclusion

    tell that to the aussies. their #1 choice for pizza. Who cares? WTF do aussies (or canadians for that matter) know about pizza??? everything i know about pizza i was taught by my italian neighbours back east. italian cooking in general. codfish spaghetti was awesome. they had no clue how to make desserts. mom traded lemon meringue pies for pasta sauces. you're the exception then. i got my hands smacked and had to repent and say several hail marys for using store bought pasta sauce for a dinner once. then i had to spend a day learning to make proper pasta sauce. you just don't piss off old 4'6" tall italian ladies. you get the stink eye from them and it's like you are cursed.
  10. Free Photo Hosting Site???

    if you are just sharing with close friends and not on creepbook and the like, imgur is fine. you can make your images non indexable. you can even upload images without an account. you can make your gallery private if you wish.

  15. Tablet / Laptop battery usage while shut down.

    Make sure it's not set up to share update files while idle. It can be sending up to 2 gigs of data at a time.
