    NFL Thread 2019-2020

    Some of those are not really dropped interceptions, they barely had any chance. But there are still plenty in there that are straight drops.

    No, but I've seen it. Just know that you'll most likely burning at least one bridge by doing that. You've got to look out for yourself, so if you truly have a better opportunity then evaluate it against hurting your reputation with the original firm. Most likely, you'll be ok. But it depends on the industry, network, etc. For example, if you're in a niche consulting job, word probably spreads way too far to take that risk.
  3. Those first 12ish games the team looked brutal, but credit to them and the staff for finding their groove. They're about to get punched a couple times in this schedule, will be interesting and nerve wracking to see how they do.

    Nest vs Ring

    I bought one from Woot for like $70, and don't need to store the videos to access later so I get everything that I need right now for just that price. I still can see a live feed and everything like that. I'm not really using it as a security service though, just a doorbell and view.

    Nest vs Ring

    ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL FEES INVOLVED? All Ring devices will operate without an additional fee or subscription. However, we offer optional Ring Video Recording Plans that cost a monthly or yearly subscription fee. Without Ring Video Recording, you will still receive alerts when visitors press your Doorbell or trigger the motion sensors in your device, and you’ll still get live streaming video and two-way audio, so you can see, hear and speak to guests in real-time, as the event is happening. However, if you don’t have Ring Video Recording and you miss an alert or a live event, you will not be able to review the video. Ring Video Recording will save all of your recordings to your Ring account for up to 60 days, and with Ring Video Recording, you can also review the videos, download them to local storage, and share them via social media, text and email. There are two options for Ring Video Recording: Basic and Protect. Basic costs $3 per month or $30 for the year per device; Protect costs $10 per month or $100 for year, and it covers an unlimited amount of Ring cameras, offers a lifetime product warranty and gives you an additional 10% off future purchases at Ring.com.
  6. Yea this team is finally showing signs of what it should be. Take care of business at home vs a good Rutgers team and a bad NW team and we'll finally not be playing catchup in the league.

    Nest vs Ring

    I use Ring as I replaced a non-functioning doorbell in my 100 yr old house. It's been great, but I don't have much to compare it too. But it does everything I want it to, I do get some cars setting off my motion sensor but changed some settings and it seems to work better. My aunt and uncle have both and they highly prefer the nest over the ring, mainly because of the over-sensitivity of the ring's sensor, but like I said I pretty much fixed that with a simple setting.

    2020 Catch-All

    If interested, find a good realtor and start to dig into the health of the building and HOA. I just checked one listing, they said assessments are $600/mth, that's a lot of money for a 1 bedroom unit.

    Mandalorian has been fantastic, thoroughly enjoyed the series so far.

    2019 Catch-All

    My parents were "hacked" and paid a firm recommended by Yahoo to clean them up (after telling them to do a few things and wait until I got there a week later). So far, almost $2k given to these scammers. Unbelievable that even though their son works in IT Security that they still fall for these things and still don't listen.

    The bundle with Hulu is a good deal.

    NCAA football thread 2019-2020

    From what I've heard, and it's not much on the official insider track, it's a lot of pieces here and there from unofficial leaks.... When the whole Jamal Walker thing went down it was because Whitman got wind of some of the "under the table" or "grey area" recruiting that he was doing. He told Underwood that isn't an option at Illinois and told him to get rid of him, eventually compromising to pulling him off the recruiting trail and Underwood at least getting his boy Gentry to Illinois. Rumor, and this is a heavy rumor, is that Antigua was extremely pissed off about this, both from a recruiting side and a "stop meddling and impacting our staff" side. Antigua isn't exactly known for shying away from that type of recruiting and it probably has a big effect on the ability to land the big fish recruits. Some people were saying that Antigua will be gone after the season because of this, but who really knows.
