  1. Random Tech/IT Thread

    Earlier this week the FBI seized a Rusiian Botnet domain involved in this. Supposedly rebooting will stop phase two and three, but factory resets and reconfiguration or firmware updates if available might be in order. This campaign was heavily focused in Ukraine, but spread to 50+ countries. Hacker News article Cisco's Talos cyber intelligence research summary
  2. Meanwhile, he probably thinks it's a really great idea, and planning on getting eyes and ears planted in Dem campaigns, like he did at various agencies when he first took office.
  3. It's just as the wood decays, it absorbs nitrogen, I think that can be bad for some vegetables or flowery plants.
  4. In Richmond, the city landfill mulch usually has small amounts of random debris in it, like chewed up bottle caps and random stuff. I never used it after the first time I tried it. Also, I've heard that new mulch from freshly cut trees hasn't had time to break down enough, so it can suck up nitrogen in your soil. Depending on if you have plants, it's something to think about. There's a lot of conflicting info out there about that. I had to have a huge oak cut down, but didn't have enough cash to pay for the stump to be ground out at the time. Eventually, I did have the stump ground out, but didn't want to pay to have them to haul the mess away. I ended up with a mountain of wood chips sitting there. I put a big "Free Mulch!" sign on it. A local landscaper mulched all around my neighborhood with it, and I didn't see any effect on plants where it was used.
  5. I can't help with a location up there, but I can confirm that the black mulch from the box stores fades very quickly. Every time I've used it. It's more brown in about a week or two. I get about 2 yards every year from a place where they dump it in the back of your truck, or deliver it if you buy enough and pay a fee. It maintains it's color for pretty much a year, with light fading, but it's still black. Ellesar's comment made me curious, and it does appear some of the cheaper companies use some pretty nasty chemicals. I'm going to ask the place where I get it from if they know what's in their's before I buy it next year. A lot of mine goes right on a hill and the water runoff drains into a city sewer, so that revelation might convince me to go back to plain old mulch.
  6. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    Wonderful to watch. Postgame is fun too. I'll come back for the next game 7 and reverse jinx exactly two times.

    Bout time for some folks to start thinking about beating the traffic.
  8. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    Long time Caps fan, but I never post in this thread. I was going to post something similar. Welcome to our world Tampa fans. This feels like the reverse of so many playoff games. Better team on paper, almost dominating the game, but muck it up D and a hot goalie ruining all the cards that are aligned. Other team making the most out of less opportunity. Lotta game left, but this is incredible.
  9. Standing during the Pledge or National Anthem

    This seems like precisely why they also put in the language about possible 15 yard penalties, so they have another way to deter owners, chairmen, whatever from trying to show support if a player does choose to protest that way. EDIT:: I conflated the reporting from yesterday with today's. I guess they were discussing it yesterday, but scrapped it. I wouldn't be surprised if they try to add it at some point.
  10. It is quite a conundrum and I have no idea how to stop it. The only thing I can think that might happen is something catastrophic might happen that will open people's eyes, but they'll probably just cycle the spin machine and make up new fallacies to blame it on. It's really depressing.
  11. Florida....? oh yeah, Florida.

    Oops, missed Riggo-toni's comment
  12. Political Comedy Thread

    I don't get the hate I see some have for for him sometimes. His show is not really LOL funny very often, but it's not meant to be. One of the reasons I like watching him is specifically what you say. He will rip into things he disagrees with, left or right. He also has some decent guests with right-leaning perspectives. I think he does a great job of guiding that show along, and letting his guests get their points across, while fitting in a healthy dose of his own views and snark in the process. I went to see his stand-up show, and was surprised how at funny it was. He was great. I recommend checking that out sometime if the opportunity presents itself. He tours like a madman.

  14. Yanny or Laurel

    What the hell? Now I only hear Yanni. I've had tinnitus forever too. I don't think I could even sleep without that constant ringing in my ears at this point. It'd be to quiet.
