Re: First World Problems

Funny story. We have chickens in our backyard. The current crop has been coming to the end of their laying (and living) period.[1] So we had always planned to buy new pullets this spring and keep the 'free' eggs coming.

Re: Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker [SPOILERS THAT NUMBER LIKE STARS IN THE GALAXY]

Having two directors really hurt this trilogy and in essence made it 3 movies not a real trilogy. For me Solo was the worst of all the movies including the prequels. To me Star Wars is about the force users. They and lightsabers are what makes it interesting. Mandalorian was amazing and really hook...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

I'm already seeing noticeable improvement from my casual exercise routine (about once or twice a week, get on the exercise bike and watch an episode of The Mandalorian). More speed for the same heart rate, and feeling better afterwards. It's even reducing my need for a cane. That's awesome! Keep it...

Re: Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker [NO SPOILERS]

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

youtube-dl on one machine gets 429 errors but works perfectly on another.

Broken? Missing? Just annoying in general?


Not missing. I know exactly what room they are in. Where in said room, however...
