  1. Westlake is near where I work. Although now I'm working from home which is not near Westlake.
  2. This should come as no surprise to anyone here: https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2020/04/03/north-texas-gun-seller-cheaper-than-dirt-dozens-complaints-price-gouging/?utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0-QrfqcMPgIbpDxSs7vyoPoy1lYeRgjpHCNna-5rnsWx_lcdM5EEGUTts
  3. Discord is a communications platform that allows text, audio, and video. You create a Discord server and under that you can create channels for different topics. You have have private and public servers. For private servers you can issue invites. I subscribe to several Discord channels for vintage computers as well as one for Ubiquiti network products and LibreNMS monitoring software.
  4. I plan on watching some this evening after woork.
  5. I haven't viewed any of them yet, I was commenting about what I've found lacking in a lot of modern standup. I have no problem with jokes about conservatives and conservative issues, my problem is the comedians that come out and say things like "Trump is an ass and he's ruining the country" or "people that don't support open borders are idiots" as their only material. Those aren't jokes, those are opinions.
  6. I've really been tired of the comedians that have complaining about conservatives and conservative issues as a large part of their routine. Nothing humorous, just comments. And the idiots in the audience laugh like the person has said something funny.
  7. I could set up a Discord server if people want one.
  8. My company has had everyone working from home starting this past Monday. Only essential personnel that are needed onsite are to go in to the office.
  9. Weather permitting I normally wear Hawaiian shirts when not at work. Other than that loose-fitting polo shirts or loose-fitting t-shirts. At work I either wear button-up short-sleeve shirts or polo shirts.
  10. I had mine out several years ago. I wasn't experiencing any issues but I was having my spleen checked to see if it was being affected by my p. vera and tech found it on the ultrasound. So I got a referral to a surgeon. He asked me questions about symptoms. I was negative. He then did this odd twisting poke in my gut and I nearly doubled over with pain. He said that was a pretty good indicator that it should be removed. I haven't experienced any issues after having it removed.
  11. I've been wearing Lees for the last few years. I dropped Levis because they quit making the style that fit me. Now Levis are out completely because they are anti-2A.
  12. I had been talking to FW about the diet for a while. I then got a CGM and seeing how the foods I was eating affected my blood glucose levels convinced me to give keto a try after just one day. Since then my blood glucose has been fairly level. Sure I miss some of the foods but I've dropped two of my meds and next month when I go to the endo for my quarterly appointment I'm hoping to drop the other two.
  13. I'm doing the keto diet and it's made a remarkable improvement in my health.
  14. I actually said something similar to a Richardson cop. He asked me how fast I was going and I responded, "no, but I bet you're going to tell me." He did. I knew there was no way I was going to get out of a ticket as it was Richardson so I figured I might have some fun with it.
  15. Texas has been sending out letters to people with unexpired non RI-compliant DLs telling them to renew before the deadline. Mine is already RI-compliant but my wife's is not and it expires after the deadline.
  16. My mother-in-law was Hungarian (immigrated to the US after escaping from Communist rule). She made really great goulash (and other Hungarian food). My wife has lots of Hungarian paprika in the pantry.
  17. I'm going to spend the day working on some vintage computers. There's a meeting in the middle of September in Springfield, OH and I'm going to prepare for my presentation and display.
  18. Snopes is treating Babylon Bee differently than they treat The Onion: https://www.foxnews.com/media/babylon-bee-snopes-satire-content-gutfeld
  19. I had this happen with my AT&T account. About once a day I'd get a text about a new temporary PIN. I called AT&T and got forwarded to their security team. We spent about an hour going through everything trying to figure out what was causing the issue. There was no unauthorized activity and no unknown logins or access to my account. This went on for about two weeks and then I was poking around on my phone and happened to look at the AT&T Call Protect app I installed a few months before. That app was the one that was triggering the requests. It was trying to authenticate after I had changed some setting on my account.
