    Golf Next Week

    From 51 at the county road it is 1.25 miles to the clubhouse if you walk down the county road then cut across at the maintenance barn, walk the service road between 13 and 14 and cross the bridge. No idea if they permit that but that seems to be what they are intending fans to do. If you...

    Looking for advice for yet another computer

    What I can recognize, I like. Have read about cooling issues with laptops that run constantly. BS put out by tower guys? Did not mention, but I run two screens. Any of that tech data let me know if I can do that without an obnoxious docking station?

    Looking for advice for yet another computer

    I appreciate the input. I saw in a thread started by RX that discussed graphics cards. What exactly do they do? Could the lack of one have anything to do with the picture editor programs crashing? Thanks.

    Looking for advice for yet another computer

    Sometimes it feels like I go through computers faster than a box of crackers. Spend most of my working hours at home, on the computer. Most of my work is done on Word, Excel, Adobe, various picture managers, Google Earth, an old version of AutoCad and of course, the internet where I would...

    Equestrian Future

    The main article I referenced is on the National Collegiate Equestrian Association website so pardon me if I take their opinion with a bit more credence than your personal experience.

    FBI agents shoots and kills man in front of CIA HQ

    There is an Amos Decker (the Memory Man) novel by David Baldacci where the plot starts with a murder on the sidewalk of I believe the CIA, or maybe the FBI, HQ and ends with a gun battle in the tunnels under the building. Great novels to while away the time driving across BFE Texas.

    YouTubeTV and Roku

    We have Roku as the "hub" on three TV's. Do not spend a whole lot of time on YouTube but our new main room TV has YouTube built in so from my perspective, this move does not really affect me. If it came down to one or the other, I would keep Roku since it is a gateway to other services.

    The Biden Administration Thread

    I guess I do not understand what sort of recognition you/they are looking for. Granted the Armenian Genocide is a talking point now because of the annual remembrance day, but come on, I would bet at least 90% of the US waltzes through December 7th as just another day and would surmise an even...

    The Biden Administration Thread

    Ronald Reagan on April 22, 1981, stated it was genocide. And also for the record, both houses of congress (including the republican-dominated Senate by unanimous vote and the bill sponsors which included Ted Cruz) passed resolutions in 2019 stating it was genocide, thus establishing the US's...

    Equestrian Future

    Also came across several other articles stating participation wanes because there is no "league" for future participation and as a spectator sport, most people give up horse interest around the end of HS. Pretty much sounds like you live it and love it, or move on around the time college...

    Equestrian Future

    According to an OSU media story from 2019, while only five ladies compete in any single competition, there are 40 ladies in the program by University policy as the program is used as an offset for Title IX. Same article states most of the animals are donated by alums and past team members which...
