O.o - Tamara J. B.
Just submitted this via the Tivo Pokerstats bug email address, but don't know if anyone reads it:
Now that I've finally (after 8 long years) made it on the Top 10 EV chart (and therefore this comment is no longer self serving), it's a bug that this chart has people on it who haven't played in years and only played for a relatively few number of games. I get that we want new people to show up -- it's good for the game and it gives people something to shoot for. But we should also get some of the more frequent players on the list. I'd suggest that if someone hasn't played for a year (or some reasonably long time), they come off the list. They can always come back on if they become active again. Separately, we should consider if five entries is enough to get on the board. Seems like that's too soon and it should be more, like 10 or 12. But I don't feel as strongly that this is a bug -- it's more important that the chart have active players on it. thanks! \Steve P.S. Another possibility is to expand the list to top 20 or something larger than 10. That is not mutually exclusive to the two suggestions above. - Steve
This isn't a new ask, but good to hear there's several people who are interested in this change :) It's on my list of things to do. Thanks for the feedback! - Jonathan Disher

Cat Stevens announces 5-city US concert tour - MSN Music News
"New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road. He announced Monday that he will make a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the U.S. since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter century. Stevens, who also is releasing a blues album on Oct. 27 produced by Rick Rubin and titled "Tell 'Em I'm Gone," is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild World," ''Morning Has Broken" and "Peace Train" has slowly broken back into secular music during the past decade and has made only a handful of semi-public and television appearances in the U.S." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

U2 debacle? *lives in a cave* - Big Joe Silence
Apple gave everyone with iTunes the latest U2 album, whether they wanted it or not. (As in, it downloaded and you didn't have a choice. There's now a support article for how to remove it.) - Jennifer Dittrich
i'm trying to wrap my mind around this but it keeps tearing in the middle. - Big Joe Silence
I got it but it didn't download because I don't have auto-download enabled on my devices. I also don't play music that pulls the tracks from my purchased list on iCloud. - Johnny from iPhone
Yes, it sucks. Apple handled this badly... but rather than just assuming I'm in control, I took the 30 seconds it takes to check if I am. Every app, song and video that is on my phone I put there by going to General > iTunes > Auto Download (and) Show All. Anyone who shares an iTunes account with other people or young teenagers already knows the "Where the hell did that come from" experience. - Johnny
Yeah, I didn't word that well - it didn't necessarily download, but did for a lot of people, and it is part of your albums list available for download unless you remove it. - Jennifer Dittrich

Laura Norvig
This home buying thing is getting realer. On the table:
1) A small townhome, but it has a big garage and four rooms upstairs and our monthly payment would be sooo low. Also in a quiet cul-de-sac and has a nicely upgraded (though small) kitchen. Downside is it is hot and price might be driven up by bidding war: - Laura Norvig
2) A real house, that backs up to a peaceful greenbelt. Gorgeous big living room. Funky old small kitchen. Inspection report shows termite/dry rot that needs to be investigated further. I wasn't drawn to it at first, but when I went back a second time it started calling to me. We would be bidding below asking due to all of the problems, but don't really know what we're getting into. - Laura Norvig
Tough decision. Good luck! - Anne Bouey
3) A soulless, but newish, comfortable place. No real yard, but nothing to fix up. Only three bedrooms. Big garage. - Laura Norvig
The third one is surprisingly soulless inside, considering how cute it is outside. I like the townhouse (1). - Betsy
Doing some research and apparently termites are almost a given in California. The main question is has there been any structural damage. - Laura Norvig
64 Vista Verde is prolly my fav for long term living for only one reason water restrictions are gonna get severe AND you'll have HOA demanding you maintain green. your green area is miniscule! and because it's so small it'll be economical, likely, to put in fake grass. but the kitchen is puny, tho there is ample space to renovate. and the upstairs laundry give me pause personally. I'd rather schlep then deal with water intrusions. but overall you're gonna live in Watsonville. yay!! I love it up there. - Lnorigb
Good luck. We wouldn't even look at the third one for two reasons: 1. HOA. 2. Two-story. (But I guess all of your choices are two-story.) If you want a third reason: 3. HOA. - Walt Crawford
I think I've been watching Property Brothers too much. The fact that the one we love (#2) needs tons of work is not phasing me anymore. - Laura Norvig
Lnorigb, the HOA fees at that place include them caring for the front lawn, not us. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
I hate the upstairs laundry idea too. I'm actually used to doing laundry in the garage. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
This is going to be so stressful ... - Laura Norvig from iPhone
it is stressful. but nice that HOA maintains the front lawn. - Lnorigb

The craziest thing I did at Burning Man this year? Fell 10 feet off this dome. #saturdayff
It was the Sunday of temple burn, and I was helping break down our camp. Our ladder was not quiiiiite tall enough. - Stephen Mack
So, I clambered on up the dome itself. We loosened the top central bolt successfully. And then I was working on one of the next five hubs. I was anchored and prepared for it to shift when the bolt came off. - Stephen Mack
But I wasn't prepared for the entire area I was perched on to shift as well. I kind of rolled off and there was nothing to grab onto. So I fell. - Stephen Mack
Fortunately, some old Hapkido training kicked in: I landed on my side, with a pretty good arm slap to break my fall. Everyone in camp was freaked out, but I just stood up and said I was fine. - Stephen Mack
After that, we got the tallest guy in camp to do the bolts, and our neighbors across the street (AEZ, one of the cooler camps around) loaned us a taller ladder. Both of which were things we should have done from the beginning. - Stephen Mack
The bad part is that we were TRYING to be careful, since we'd also had an accident setting up the dome: The tall guy had accidentally dropped one of the bars while stretching up to secure one of the top hubs, and it struck our camp leader on the chest, leaving a nasty gouge. It could have been REALLY bad if it had hit her elsewhere. - Stephen Mack
One of the frequent Burning Man refrains is "safety third" but we internalized that a bit too much this year, I think. - Stephen Mack
We set up a white board with a "0 DAYS SINCE LAST ACCIDENT" and later had to switch DAYS to HOURS because of our many frequent (but fortunately minor) mishaps this year. - Stephen Mack
Note to self: Bring a taller ladder next year. - Stephen Mack
My neck was a bit sore on Wednesday, but otherwise no ill effects. - Stephen Mack
All in all, a great year. Fabulous art, thunder and lightning, great crew, amazing burns, new experiences (including working a greeter shift and running a 5k). I have zero complaints and miss the playa deeply. - Stephen Mack

I'm glad you're okay! - Spidra Webster
