Re: Reminder: Johnson paid for doctored football

I think this is going to run until editors run out of headlines involving permutations of handling, inspecting, manipulating, adjusting ... balls

Hopefully the NFL balls are handled by the Schweddy corporation.

Re: Macbook suddenly can't join Wifi

Unplugged the Time Capsule and plugged it back in. All is better now. Very strange that the MBP was the only thing that wouldn't connect.

Macbook suddenly can't join Wifi

For some reason my Macbook Pro suddenly won't connect to my home's Wifi network. It worked fine last night. This morning it prompted me for the network password. I've entered it 5 times, sure that it's correct, but it "shakes its head" at [more]

Re: Padres trades

The fact that his HR's and RBI's last year were double what the Padres got from their "best hitters" only shows how bad those hitters were -- not how good Upton was.

No argument there, but your comment was "Not sure [more]

Re: Padres trades

Not sure that the Upton trade gives them anything -- he's been terrible.

Terrible? Really? Last year he hit .274/.342/.491 for an OPS of .833. Maybe not superstar numbers but far from "terrible". And his 29 home runs and 102 [more]

Padres trades

Looks like the Padres have officially acquired Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers, and Derek Norris. For a team that never makes much of a splash in the acquisition market this is pretty exciting for us fans. It's been a real shame watching such [more]

except for kids like Eli Manning who wanted to be closer to family than San Diego. I think he didn't have anything against the Chargers as much as he just wanted to be in the Eastern part of the United States close to his family.

Re: Lost admin password - Snow Leopard

When you boot into single user mode you can delete the file /var/db/.AppleSetupDone and when you reboot the machine it should take you through the initial setup sequence, allowing you to create an admin user.

Re: Newbie questions

As for the players, they use the off-season for surgery, working out, and taking vacation.

And serving prison sentences.

Lost admin password - Snow Leopard

Greetings,

I gave my old MBP to a friend a few years ago when I bought a newer machine. That machine is running OS 10.6. It was never updated to later OS'es because he's mostly computer illiterate and doesn't want to be bothered with [more]

Re: BLOOD IS IN THE STREETS!!

AAPL fell by nearly 50% on 09/29/2000

That was a week or two after I bought my very first chunk of AAPL. It was the 2nd stock purchase I had ever made, the first being ATHM (remember that gem?) earlier that year.

Pats-Chargers

Midway through the 4th quarter the Chargers were down by 9 points and had 3rd and 11 from their own 43 yard line. Rivers scrambles (if you can call it that) for 7 yards bringing up 4th and 4 from midfield.

Rather than going for it on 4th [more]

I'm surprised I haven't seen this problem mentioned here. Or maybe it was and I just missed it. I'm posting this mostly for others who are having the same problem, but also in case someone has found a better solution.

Weird, another restart of the phone has fixed the problem, at least temporarily. Hopefully doesn't keep coming back.

iOS 8 and BMW audio

Greetings,

Just got around to updating my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.1 over the weekend. No problems except that I can no longer use the controls in my 2011 BMW to initiate audio playback.
