    Xenforo Upgrade

    Xenforo Default style is the easiest one for me. The SatGuys default is a little too bright, and Dark is way too dark. Thanks.

    Disney's Zorro was Guy Williams. Duncan Renaldo was the Cisco Kid.

    Ok, this is different. Not bad, just different.

    Favorite short-lived TV show?

    Reminds me of "The Greatest American Hero", where William Katt receives a superpower suit from aliens, but loses the instructions. Great theme song.

    Disney Plus +

    I remember seeing "Song of the South" in elementary school, in the 1950's. There was a controversy over ethnic depictions even then, and we didn't live in an ethnically diverse community. But I still chuckle remembering Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby.

    Disney Plus +

    I remember going to Disneyland when those were new. I must have been in 9th grade. I was more interested in the Autopia, because I really wanted to be able to drive a car. I don't think that any of my friends had a color TV set at the time, and we didn't either, so the "Wonderful World of...

    NFL 2019 Season

    Only one that was really a badly thrown pass. One was tipped and the last was a Hail Mary. Chargers problem is they're missing the starting offensive tackles. Hard to get good pass protection that way.

    It's political. I'm sure he'll go to the Army/Navy game too.

    MLB 2019 Baseball season

    Strangest World Series ever! Amazing that the road team won every game. Contrats to the Nats.

    AT&T Wants to Move DIRECTV Customers to Streaming Services Like AT&T TV & HBO Max

    I'm sure that they want to do that, but until they can run something better than DSL to my house, it's not gonna work for me.

    A fun youtube link / Early 1970's Reel to Reel videos (pre-beta / vhs) transfered & on youtube

    My sister had one in 1968. She was an early tech adopter. She also had early hand-held scientific calculators, and had an early TRS-80 computer. I bought her first floppy drive for her (8").

    We have a great freshman now named Spencer Rattler. You'll hear more about him next year when Hurts graduates.

    2019-20 NCAA Football Thread

    Oklahoma's last 3 starting quarterbacks have been transfers (2 from the SEC, and 1 from the Big-12). Two of them won the Heisman Trophy. People will go where they see opportunity to develop and display their talent.

    New Roof - Re-point the Antenna

    Insurance didn't include the cost of repointing the dish. I'll see if it's worth the hassle of filing an amended claim. For $60, probably not. We got the roof done for less than the settlement anyway. The Directv tech did a good job, it was worth it to me.

    New Roof - Re-point the Antenna

    So insurance is paying me for replacing my roof shingles because of a storm in August. The roofers pulled the Directv dish off the roof yesterday. Do I need to call Directv to put it back up and re-point the dish? I know the roofers can't point the dish, and I doubt that I can either.

    What do you think the greatest decade of the 20th century was?

    Having been born in 1949, I remember some of the 50s, and all of the rest. I'll take the 60s. The Vietnam war was horrible and the Cuban missile crisis was scary, but the rest was wonderful. Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, the Beatles, color TV, Woodstock, ... I was a teenager, I was in college, I...

    Food Network star Carl "The Cuban" Ruiz dies at 44

    I'm hitting 70 in November and I'm still working. Too many men drop dead within 6 months of retiring. I think it's all in the mind. You just need to like your job.
