Anyone else think Boehner's phone is ringing off the hook with the Fortune 1000 CEO's ?

Fortune 1000 Company List

I think so. They have everything to lose and nothing to gain (from what I know of economics) by the partial shutdown and especially a potential default. Boehner must be totally wasted all the time to handle this pressure. He has the Fortune 1000 braying in his left ear (figuratively speaking) and the insane RW Teabaggers braying in his right ear.

Poor Boehner.

UCF Knights fan here, we're 4-1 so far, 1-0 in conference

Only loss was to South Carolina, 28-25, on 9-28-2013. Next game is against Louisville on 10-18-2013 at Louisville. We beat Penn State, amazing.

Wish us luck.

Wireless Networking Simplified: The Terms You Should Know


Do you know the difference between an “access point” and an “ad hoc network? What is a “wireless repeater” and how can it improve your home network? Is a “wireless router” as simple as it sounds, or is there more to it? There are a lot more wireless networking terms around that encompass more than “WiFi” ever could, and it might turn out to be beneficial for you if you knew what these terms meant.

Not only will these terms help you to be more knowledgeable on the networks at home, at school, or at work; they may even prove useful when you need to troubleshoot issues. Nonetheless, wireless networking is a large component of modern technology, so there’s no downside to clarifying your familiarity with these terms.

Access Point

Before the invention of wireless connections, networks were comprised of long lines of interconnected cables. In order to tap into such a network, you would need to physically connect your device to the network. An access point is a device connected to such a network that allows other devices to tap in wirelessly.

Chicago Eatery Serves Burger with Communion Wafer Garnish


What was supposed to be an average monthly special for Kuma's Corner, a heavy-metal-themed Chicago burger joint, has turned into much more than the restaurant bargained for because they chose to garnish with a communion wafer.

The Ghost burger, honoring the Swedish metal band of the same name, is a 10-ounce beef patty topped with braised goat shoulder, aged white cheddar, ghost chili aioli, and a red wine reduction. Nothing too controversial, except for the addition of an unconsecrated communion wafer - essentially a cracker with a decorative cross - which has sparked thousands of reactions, positive and negative, across Facebook.

Luke Tobias, director of operations at Kuma's Corner, said he is baffled by it all.

"We didn't expect this reaction. Apparently, today, someone's coming out to do a rosary prayer over our restaurant," Tobias said. "We've done plenty of burgers named after fairly controversial bands in the past to seemingly no visible effect. It's based on a band, just like every other burger on our menu."

went to a club tonight, my ears are ringing now...

I'll wear my in-ear protectors if I go there again, wow. It's been a long time since my ears have rung after a club/concert.

When you read GD, how many pages "back" do you go ?

Trivial question, meaning, do you only stay on the front page of GD, or do you go back 2, 3, 10 pages back ?

When did the conservative "liberal media" meme get started ?

FDR ? Vietnam War ? With William Buckley ? Anyone ?

Mental health funding in the USA: increase, decrease, stay the same ?

troubleshooting DU

I know you've said you have zero problems with DU. I frequently have page loading delays.

DU seems to work better with IE11 (the default on Win8.1). What browser do you typically use ? Any other advice ? I've done all I know how to do.
