On the plus side, he gets to go to prison now and meet real gang members. I'll bet some will even disapprove of his reason for being there.

It took them forever to agree on the N standard, so long that there was a bunch of Pre-N equipment released by manufacturers that got tired of waiting for the governing board to get its head out and make a ruling. I wouldn't expect anything soon from them.

Is it possible to film a fight scene without slo mo in this day and age?  Or is it something we just have to learn to accept as the only way it's done now?   Tongue

It's that or shaky-cam. I'll take the slomo.

Is that flash of light to the left of the stadium a generator blowing up?

It's from Candlestick from last year against the Steelers.  I believe 2 generators blew up that night.  More importantly, we beat the Steelers that night smile

So based on all that data, the Niners lost last night because only half the lights went out. They need to fire the coach of their electrical team!

I started smoking weed about ten years ago and I was already in my 30s at that point.  I used to go out a couple nights per week drinking but weed supplanted that.  No hangover, no jackholes to put up with at the bar, cheaper by a long shot, and FOOD.TASTES.SO.F'ING.AWESOME!! nod

While I think the Maps app is a pretty big disappointment, I'm very impressed with how fast it is when moving the map around.  Google didn't seem to cache their map tiles at all, causing the occasional "black hole" because the program was having a problem loading that tile (even at home on wifi).  Apple maps (maybe due to carrying less data) is responsive as can be when scrolling.

Either way, I tend to use Waze more than either program because the traffic reporting is much more accurate (thank you fellow commuters!)

This is so weird how this all went down.  Even if the USADA did have loads of evidence, I wouldn't think they would have the authority to do anything except make a recommendation to the Tour de France officials.  I thought the USADA's "jurisdiction" was over US olympic athletes, not professional venues like the Tour de France.  

this.  Tour de France should just tell the USADA(ssholes) to fuck off.

It's a conspiracy by Lance:

1) He lets the USADA make their outrageous statements declaring they'll strip him of his titles.
2) The French, even though they're aching to do the same, are contrary cusses and aren't going to let the Americans tell them what to do. They declare him a national hero and raise a statue to him at the top of the highest point of the course.
3) Profit!!

If the box office really turns out disappointing, I suspect the studio will be less inclined to back a sequel unless the budget's lower.

No way near being close to dissapointing at the box office. As of July 5th it's grossed  almost $290 million worldwide  - intial production budget was $130 million. With it more than doubling it's costs in 1 month, I'd say the studios would be more than happy to have Scott make another. slywink

Production is only part of the equation. I'm curious what they spent on marketing it around the world.

You can not upgrade anything after you buy it. The RAM is soldiered in place and the SSD is proprietary. The batteries are not replaceable.

http://ifixit.org/2763/the-new-macbook-pro-unfixable-unhackable-untenable/

That said, you can just use bootcamp to install Windows 7. Then you can shrink the MacOSX partition to it's smallest size and boot into Windows 7 at all times. I'm fairly certain once you get Windows 7 installed you can actually remove OSX entirely.

There's nothing that says because you have Mac hardware you must use MacOSX...

Based on my experience, you lose major battery life using Windows on a MBP.  The MBP has two "video cards" in it: the high-wattage third-party card (Nvidia or ATI, depending on your model) and the low-wattage Intel built into the CPU.  OSX will intelligently use the Intel video for all your usual desktop 2D needs and only kick in the third-party card when needed for games and such, saving you a lot of battery life.  However, either through the fault of Windows itself or the Bootcamp drivers created by Apple, the Windows side only uses the third-party card and will drain your battery much faster than OSX.

I have a mid-2010 MBP and I do use Bootcamp for a Win7 install, but I tend to keep the power cord handy if I need to be in there for a lengthy period of time (usually gaming).  When I first got the thing I expected to be in Windows all the time, but after seeing the battery issues I started getting more familiar with the OSX side and I've been pleased with it.  The touchpad also works better on the OSX side (it can be kind of jumpy in Windows).

If you'd look at the attendance figures gellar linked to at ESPN, you'll discover that the reason Kings fans aren't watching the game on TV is because we're at the Staples Center watching them live, as opposed to Devils fans and their measly 87.4 attendance rate. icon_razz

Good work gellsy, you got to see their last win of the year.

COME AT ME BRO.

So this is probably just for Devil and me, but it's still awesome (and shows how much more Canada tries for their TV broadcasts).  The intro for Game 1 on CBC:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_gLo8VlF3E&feature=youtu.be



That video needs to finish with "BECAUSE IT'S THE MOTHER F*CKING CUP!!!"

One thing you left off your description of Kopitar: dude has patience with the puck.  Most skaters will try to beat the goalie with a quick shot or deke themselves right out of a good shot, but he's got the patience (and skill) to make them fully commit while confidently skating right up to their doorstep.

What was the mix of Kings fans at the game last night?  There was a pretty big roar heard through the TV after Kopitar scored.

I want to give a special shout out to the Slingbox/iPad combo that allowed me to watch the game last night while I was at the Dodger game, and the understanding clients that took me. thumbsup

I agree that Saturday determines the series. If the Devils take it we should be looking at 6 or 7. If the Kings do, a sweep could be in order.


Nah. For some reason, the Kings get performance anxiety at home. We'll finish it in five on your ice.  Tongue

IMO Brown should definitely be suspended for that knee hit last night, but I'm betting that doesn't happen. I'm pretty much done with NHL officiating; between all the missed calls, incorrect calls, no calls followed by suspensions and the circus show Refs seem to love to perform during face-offs. I don't see such piss poor officiating in the WHL and even in the 2 AHL playoff games I caught it was better. Unless they attempt some overhaul during the off season, I'm definitely going to shift more of my hockey viewing elsewhere.

It wasn't a knee hit.  Brown's knee went between Rozsival's legs and they went thigh-to-thigh.  Rozsival looks like he might have hyperextended his knee because of the hit, and it was definitely late with a raised elbow, but it wasn't a knee knocker.  I think Brown will get an unofficial warning from the League, but nothing more.

I think the refs gave Brown a free pass because they called nothing on Rozsival for sitting on Brown for 5 seconds to keep him out of the play after he popped Smith's glove off.
