The folks that owned the house before us took their non-in-door ice/water machine when they left.

The movers show up tomorrow to move all of our crap (mostly mine) into our first house.

Who the hell thinks I'm grown up enough to own a house?!?

Ditto. I'll wait until it's $5. I have a few other LEGO games to get through in the meantime.

Packing indeed sucks.  I have 6 days to get the apartment in order before the movers come.  Luckily for me, it's a 20-mile move with a 10-day overlap between access and move-out.

Texas has chocolate-scented tickets.  Most of these lotto tickets are produced by only a few companies.  The Dubious Quality Friday Links had a good story about flawed games within the last two months.

Hit me up when you clear customs, and we can consume some adult beverages at the Flying Saucer.  I haven't been to the one in Fort Worth, but I'd be more than willing to try it, then tote you to the opposite end of the Metroplex to see the one on the lake.

I've come to the conclusion that "ripping the bandage off" is not the way to go about change in our society.  It happens gradually.  Hopefully they'll (and others)  will continue to grow in the direction that I think any just and compassionate God would approve.
My relatives from the South said the same thing about slavery. It was being phased out and not economically viable, therefore the The War really was about the invaders from the north lead by the tyrant Lincoln trying to take away their state's rights.

Was that before or after they seceded and tried to seize federal military installations?   Roll Eyes

109  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Gay Marriage and the Churches on: March 18, 2015, 02:37:37 PM

The largest Presbyterian denomination in the US will formally recognise same-sex marriages after decades of debate.

With nearly 1.8 million members, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is the biggest Protestant group in the US to endorse the ceremonies.

The move was supported by the church's top legislative body last year, but required approval from a majority of the denominations' regional districts.

A New Jersey district delivered the critical vote on Tuesday.

The new church policy reads: "Marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives."

But the denomination has included a provision that no clergy would be compelled to preside over a gay marriage or host such a ceremony on church property. A number of districts have voted against the rule change.

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved the ordination of gay pastors, elders and deacons in 2011, which led to many conservative congregations to leave the denomination.

Without making plans on how to do so, photographing an aurora is hard.

Almost any camera―either digital or film―will work for photographing the aurora, as long as you can adjust it manually to take time exposures of 10-30 seconds or longer.  An all-automatic camera may not work well for these photos, I'm afraid, but it's certainly worth trying.

As several readers point out in the comments, ESO wonít be 100% free-to-play: New players will still have to make a one-time purchase of the software up front. But if youíre already playing, you wonít have to spend another dime starting on March 17.

I've got plenty of shooter left with BF4 if I need it, and I have an older OOTP that I've never really played. Even the MLB license isn't enough to get me to overcome the backlog inertia.

I've slowed down the Lego Marvel quest for 100%, and transitioned to NHL 14 on the 360. Getting the Kings to call me up a few times has been nice, except for the fact that I can't seem to stick.  I guess they're too good to need me on a permanent basis.

Chip card (EMV) deadline for financial institutions is October 2015. After that, the onus of fraud losses shifts to them.  Even if not everyone makes it by then, they'll be moving forward on it.  

So why has the U.S. not embraced EMV sooner? Part of the reason is because our fraud problem, while significant, has typically been among the lowest rates among highly-developed economically-mature countries. Much of that is due to the online authentication methods at work here. . In Englandís old offline authentication method, credit card transactions were gathered together at specific times Ė typically, at the end of the business day Ė and then batched over to the card issuers for authorization. Itís a method that gave those committing fraud a significant time lag between the transaction and the authorization, and this time lag contributed greatly to the higher levels of fraudulent activities in England. Here at home, our online authentication methodology permits authorizations to be done in real-time, thus thwarting a significant percentage of the fraudulent attempts at the point of sale, the best place to stop fraud. Our online authentication methods also incorporate multiple fraud and risk parameters as well as advanced neural networks that are Ďbuilt-iní to the approval process. Itís been a highly effective system that works well when compared to most alternatives.

I work for an FI of under $1B assets, and it's on our roadmap for this year.  The insurance agencies that insure FIs against fraud are going to make it expensive for those that aren't in complaince, I'm sure.

HBO Go requires a HBO subscription through your tv provider.  HBO Now is a completely different product that's standalone, and is built by the MLB Advanced Media, a move that made HBO's CTO quit.
