Re: I Hate America

Jerry Springer as Attorney-General, Doctor Strange at State and Bart Simpson to replace Comey at the FBI.

Morning in America.

Teach us to spend too much time watching the stoopid news.

Re: NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season

Bogut played 29 minutes last night, game leading +20, will rest for tonight's back-to-back. Barnes and Bogut returning prompted an entertaining pre-game session with Gary St. Jean and Kelenna Azubuike discussing the top five former Golden State players who had great careers elsewhere -- Gilbert Aren...

Re: NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season

Ezeli hasn't played a minute for the Blazers so far, rehabbing again.

Barnes, Bogut, and Seth Curry come to Oracle tonight. Barnes had one 30 point game in his first four seasons with the Dubs, has had three in the last six games with the Mavs.

Re: I Hate America

Looks like Hillary will win the popular vote. Only the fifth time the biggest vote getter loses in the electoral college, but twice now in the last 16 years.

Re: NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season

Steph celebrates Al Attles 80th birthday with a HOF level game, an NBA record 13 made 3s on 17 attempts, 76.5%, and one of those misses was a 3/4 court heave with time expiring at the half.

Draymond with a double-double, boards and dimes. Nice all-around performance in limited minutes by West.

Re: Favorite Shakespeare and Shakespeare-inspired films

Here's a good link to Ebert's review. Sorry to see the film has been removed from youtube:

Re: Ransomware primer

I created a new account because it seemed easier than reviving the old one. Not sure about the backup question. I think having an external hard drive always plugged in kind of defeats the purpose of it being external. I was NOT using any backup. I am now. The tech replaced my hard drive. He worked o...

That's a good site, although it doesn't have the keys to my virus (probably a variation of the Locky Ransomware). My tech uses Kaspersky to check in to see if the server has been seized and the keys made public.

first notes second reading twelfth night

Sounds like the beginning of a math problem. We are still scheduled for the first Wednesday in December, the seventh, for our second go at Twelfth Night. Our first reading fell on Twelfth Night itself, but it doesn't fall again on Wednesday (my one night off) for many years to come. January 6, the T...

Re: NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season

Man, Steph laid an egg from long distance yesterday. 0-10, ending his record 157 consecutive games with a 3-pointer. Last game without a three was nearly two years ago. But he almost had a triple double last night, 11 dimes and 8 boards. Tough back-to-back following an emotional game against the Th...

Re: NBA 2016-2017 Regular Season

Yeah, it was the ankle. And that was kind of universally understood around here. The sidestep on the three-pointers, the slithers around the hoop . . . if you watched him all year, you could see it wasn't all there. I suppose any player could suffer a crisis of confidence, but Steph would be way dow...

Ransomware primer

Having been victimized to what will eventually come to be about $1,000 in an old west type stickup, plus a week-and-a-half of high anxiety, let me share my hard won knowledge with you. Ransomware is THE hacker ripoff of choice in 2016, and moving forward. A couple of Saturdays ago I did a wedding fo...
