Dude...hair clip. Under a buck from any drug store. Keeps the cable in place by simply clipping it to the power cable going to my lamp. That way you can keep using charger cables that are under a dollar a pop (you'll find em on amazon) and not care about losing them everywhere or breaking them. » 10/24/14 8:39am Yesterday 8:39am

Met my now fiance' on OKC. Long story as short as possible: I was fresh out of a 10 year marriage and went on what I refer to as my fuckathon. Meeting as many people as I could, sleeping with all of them (Regardless of attraction, desire to spend time etc). Kept that up for around 4 months and it was fantastic -… » 10/23/14 2:23pm Thursday 2:23pm

I hate to say this but...you're young. Like, very young. Asking folks to unplug? Very easy to do when you're at a job, as opposed to a career/a career that isn't in the white collar world. My apologies for making assumptions here, but I've been in white collar world for around 10 years now...and the idea of not… » 10/23/14 10:13am Thursday 10:13am

Whole concept is bizarre. Many jobs that do things on an hourly basis have their workers work 38 or 37.5 hours a week to allow for things like unanticipated overtime. Seems that would be a rather easy solution here as well - pay 'em for 40, but have em work 38...the other 2 hours would, presumably, more than cover… » 10/23/14 9:30am Thursday 9:30am

If you're interested in this sort of thing, U-869 I believe it was, was discovered not far from the coast of New Jersey. Really excellent book about the discovery called "Shadow Divers" - it was in 230 feet of water, in relatively early days of technology for scuba (trimix was a brand new thing), so its discovery was… » 10/21/14 8:56pm Tuesday 8:56pm

Jamie have you or any of the giz folks had hands or eyes on time with this thing? Seems like a good entry level thing for my kid...but at the same time, in my experience, devices that try to fill multiple niches rarely fill them all very well. Like MFPs copy, but not as well as a stand alone copier etc. » 10/21/14 8:41am Tuesday 8:41am

While I'm sure it will hurt apple not to sell a couple of extra mac minis to folks like you and me, somehow I think they'll survive. Their way of doing things sucks for us, but is fantastic for shareholders...and as you can see by the fact that the company is pretty damn solid, it seems to be working for them. » 10/21/14 7:07am Tuesday 7:07am

Yes, exactly this and well said all around. At this point my ipad is pretty much relegated to kindle duty. I have an iphone 6 plus that pretty much meets any other needs and, in fact, even meets that need for when I'm out and about. The iPad lives on a stand on my nightstand and gets used for bedtime reading or, as… » 10/20/14 7:53pm Monday 7:53pm
