Shazayum!!! OK, I Need Some Tech Help

15 September 2014 - 10:46 AM

Okay, so I'm a little less tech savvy than I'd like to be; but I had a Gomer Pyle moment the other day purely by accident.

I remember PT talking about getting a Google device that allowed him to watch his computer content on his TV, and thought that was pretty cool.

The other day I was watching some stuff on my own computer, and somehow I right clicked on the content and got a menu. Hovering over "Play" on the menu opened up another menu with a "Play through my Hopper" option.

So I clicked it, not having any clue what or how it worked, and pow, the stuff I'm watching on my computer pops up on my TV.

Now I haven't bought any hardware or downloaded any software, nor have I wired or linked anything computer related to my TV or my dish hopper; but sure as Posted Image, I can watch everything on my computer on the big screen with 2 clicks. I'm not even hard-wired to anything, I access the internet through wi-fi router.

Anybody know how that happened and/or how it works?

SEC Statement On Time Clock In UF-UK OT

14 September 2014 - 06:25 PM

At the request of the University of Kentucky, consistent with SEC protocol, the conference office reviewed the fourth down play in the first overtime of the Kentucky-Florida game and has determined the officials applied the proper mechanics and guidelines that are in place to determine when a flag should be thrown for delay of game. The back judge is responsible for delay of game calls. The procedure for the back judge is for his eyes to stay on the clock when it nears zero. When the clock hits zero, he immediately looks from the clock to the ball. If the ball is moving, there is no delay of game. If the ball is stationary, a delay of game penalty is called.


So, the actual start of a play is not when the ball is in the QB's hands, or when the center releases the ball to the QB, it's when the center starts moving the ball to the rear, which we can't see from the same perspective on TV as the back judge who is behind the QB.

But if we see the ball in the air on the shotgun snap a fraction of a second after the clock has hit 0, then obviously the center started his motion with time still on the clock.

Gator Billy Horschel Wins Tour Championship, FedEx Cup & $10 Million

14 September 2014 - 05:53 PM

Won his last 2 PGA Tour events, and outdeuled Rory McElroy (who started the day tied with Horschel) and Jim Furyk to win the FedEx Cup, which pays out a $10 million bonus. Essentially the PGA Super Bowl, Horschel remembered to lay a Gator Chomp on the 18th green in celebration.

   Billy Horschel collects $10M bonus

Updated: September 14, 2014, 6:34 PM ET

Associated Press

ATLANTA -- Billy Horschel capped off the best three weeks of his career with the biggest payoff in golf.

Horschel pulled away from a self-destructing Rory McIlroy early, and then holed two clutch putts that felt like $10 million to hold off Jim Furyk on the back nine at East Lake. He closed with a 2-under 68 for a three-shot victory in the Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup.

Horschel's career earnings were just over $4.5 million coming into the year.

He collected $11.4 million in one day -- most of that the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus -- with an incomparable run through the playoffs.

The 27-year-old from Florida was runner-up in Boston, a winner in Denver and he cashed in big in Atlanta. Horschel was No. 69 when the playoffs began a month ago. No one had ever won the FedEx Cup starting lower than No. 19.

He epitomized what these playoffs offered -- one month for anyone to get a hot hand. Horschel shot in the 60s his last 12 rounds.

"He was clutch when he needed to be," McIlroy said. "He played the best golf this week and I'm happy for him."

The only boos Horschel heard all day was doing the Gator chomp walking off the 18th green before a host of Georgia fans.


SEC Heritage Tour

01 September 2014 - 10:23 AM

So I'm out doing a little hiking and exploring with my best friend, Otto The Handsome, a naturally inquisitive 6-year old German Shepherd; and it occurred to me that we have some pretty awesome old houses and history in my neck-o-the-woods.

The other day we're walking on the opposite side of the river from the railroad tracks and Rose Hill Cemetery, where Duane Allman and Berry Oakley are buried, and as we got to the cemetery, I noticed a flag flying and graves in a military arrangement.

This view of Rose Hill used to be virtually impossible because you couldn't walk through the other side of the river without a machete and some serious endurance; it was completely wild and swampy. The city has been building a river-walk for several years now. The primary entrance has a life-size statue of Otis Redding with his music playing out loud.

So anyway, I thought I'd start a picture thread for folks to post their Southeastern surroundings so everyone can get a little taste of the various local flavors...

Turns out the portion of Rose Hill I'm looking at is the Confederate graveyard, and the flag is solid white with a Confederate flag in the corner. Here are a couple of pics...

The 50th Anniversary Of The Ruger 10/22

14 August 2014 - 08:33 AM

In light of the special occasion I decided to go ahead and get one with all the bells and whistles...

10/22 Takedown in stainless, threaded 16.25" barrel, mini-14 style flash suppressor, 25 round factory magazine, 50 round factory magazine, red fiber optic front sight, green fiber optic rear sight, drilled and tapped, a scope base adapter, and a cordura carrying case.

With this particular gun, I really liked that it essentially already had everything I'd have added to suit me. The flash suppressor isn't really necessary, but I like that one was included because it protects the threads; and more importantly, because the barrel is already factory-threaded it's ready for a can if I want one, and I don't have to fool with it or the front sight as an aftermarket alteration.

Every 2014 model will have the 50th recognition engraved on it somewhere.

That case is holding the rifle, the 25 and 50-round mags with room for another, the scope, a fixed blade knife, a folding knife, and 500 rounds of ammo... sling it over the shoulder and we're good to go.
