Why would he be a spy?

Are they trying to make us believe that everyone a character runs into is a secret agent? That's an enormous investment in capital. Why would the Soviets train an agent to be a Christian youth minister? Doesn't

Okey dokey - thanks for the clarification! I remember him now. Are you disappointed big time because the finale did not address Martha's situation. I am! Many critical points were touched - Paige, the trip, Nina, Stan, etc but I WANT MARTHA!! [more]

Philip and Elizabeth are really evil immoral bastards.

Phillip seems to have a little more of a conscience.

I had both 10.9 and beta 10.10 running on my Mini and 10.9 on MBPr. No problems going between. Once I had Yosemite loaded on my Mini I hardly went back to Mavericks. I hated

Re: best way to cut cable?

You're not understanding how ratings work, nor what the argument is about. Let me try:

You are comparing "a single show" ratings with "those who ever tune in to a channel." While a single show on CBS may only get your

Re: Yosemite and Mavericks

Do you have an external drive or room on your internal drive? If so create a separate partition and install Yosemite to test the software. While still on Mavericks I did the public beta of Yosemite. No problems running both.

Re: best way to cut cable?

I bet it would cost more, perhaps much more, if "standalone" was the only way to get it. At $15 they would be just about even with where they are today, if everyone who ever watched ESPN subscribed.. (Only about 1/3 of the country ever [more]

Re: best way to cut cable?

Re: best way to cut cable?

What I haven't seen proposed (and I'm not even sure if it would work financially) is being able to buy buckets of channels -- kind of a hybrid between current packages and a la carte. Basically, you pay a set fee for a set number of channels, but [more]
