Re: What are you watching on TV these days?

Has anyone been watching "Making It" on NBC? This is the 2nd season of this crafting competition show, but they are showing all the episodes in a 2 week period so I get the feeling that NBC is just burning off the episodes. They just finished week 1. The show has 10 competitors, with 2 competitions ...

When it returned later, I used the oil again for a month with the same results. When it works, it works! But not overnight. If you don't ...

Dropbox will keep old versions of files for 30 days under its free and regular ($120/year) plans. Its $200/year plan allows you to go back 180 days. Oh, I did not know that! Time for me to look at the documentation! It's actually really easy to do if you're after just one file. View your files by l...

I use Dropbox, but if a file is corrupted on your PC, wouldn't it also be corrupted on Dropbox? I have real-time syncing; maybe you have that turned off?

Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

My mother had a weird drug reaction that sounds similar. Her doctors wanted to move her from Lorazepam to Prozac because the state regulations have changed making it more inconvenient for THEM. Anyway, she had to take both for a while because they aren't a 1:1 replacement. After 2+ months on the Pro...

Looks like MeTV has select episodes from Mary Tyler Moore and Rhoda shows airing Sunday afternoon. I *think* it said beginning at 5PM Eastern, but not clear - check your local listings.

Re: Hijack this thread

That kind of pain is the worst pain in the world. I had a similar thing about 20 years ago and I still shudder to think about it. I read once that a guy tried to shoot out his bad tooth once, and I almost understand it.

It's awful that they can't give you anything for the pain. That's fucked up.

Was the complaint signed with the illegible signature of John Vidurek?

And was there a wax seal on it?

Green Acres. It's on Prime and it's adorable.
My mother is watching it on MeTV; I noticed it was on her DVR and asked her about it. She said "I love it, it's so funny!" I remember thinking it was stupid when I was a sullen teenager; maybe I'll check it out again!
