I'm with you. The only thing I automatically open is background stuff, like Backblaze and anti-malware stuff. I keep the stuff I use most often pinned to my taskbar, and I have several home page tabs, but I still set my browser to open to a blank page—I can hit that home button should I WANT my usual crap. My system… » 10/30/14 1:47pm Yesterday 1:47pm

No mention of Will Scarlet breaking into a LIBRARY to steal a copy of Alice in Wonderland, after disagreeing w/ Hook that "There's nothing in there worth stealing," got him a good old-fashioned ass-whupping? (And that picture of his queen could NOT have come from that book, as she's not in it; she's in the sequel,… » 10/20/14 4:12pm 10/20/14 4:12pm

I thought the same thing about the no-marg one! Especially as I watched how high it rose. But I guess the point is that other than angel cake, cakes have some density to them, and the no-marg one lacks both density and color. Had to look at it a few times though. » 10/18/14 12:02am 10/18/14 12:02am

To me, this is the BIGGEST reason to still use a mail client (vs. webmail.) My yahoo account makes it almost impossible to see who the "real" sender is, especially for anything it puts in my junk, and it's hard to do the hover trick. I use Thunderbird with the MailHops extension, and more often than not, something… » 10/17/14 8:30pm 10/17/14 8:30pm

I only decided to start watching Orphan Black b/c Amazon added S1 to its streaming library, and I had heard that fandom crying out about the awards snub. Being a fan of good acting, I wanted to see this young woman who could play 12 different parts, each one so distinctively that you forget they're all being played by… » 10/17/14 8:09pm 10/17/14 8:09pm

This is all well and good for most people. However, those of us who have gone through a life changing incident that left us disabled, or otherwise not as great as our "old selves" often need to refrain from doing just that. For me, it is unrealistic to think I'll EVER be able to do all "my old self" could do without… » 10/17/14 7:55pm 10/17/14 7:55pm

Reusing coffee filters and zipper baggies. Coffee filters are less than a penny each; I can't see how emptying them and drying them back out is worth it. Same with zipper baggies—unless it's a freezer bag w/ no remnants of its previous use, or the heavy duty baggie you put your phone in when going to the beach/pool, I… » 10/14/14 9:46am 10/14/14 9:46am

Queen of the Damned was one of the BEST books in the Vampire Chronicles. THe movie barely resembled the book at all. One of the BEST parts of the book was the whole history of the "Elders;" the elders were only included in a deleted scene of the movie. That movie was just a hot mess! » 10/10/14 4:18pm 10/10/14 4:18pm
