    Help me secure my Google account

    Authy is a good one because of the backup feature. One thing I only recently discovered (wish I'd known sooner) is that they are all compatible so if a site says you can use Google Authenticator, you can just scan the barcode in Authy instead. When you set them up you have to save backup codes...

    Help me secure my Google account

    I use Google authenticator for my 2FA - if you're using smartphone SMS, consider changing over to an app at least if you don't want a hardware key. https://www.theverge.com/2017/9/18/16328172/sms-two-factor-authentication-hack-password-bitcoin

    ESPN suspends Adrian Wojnarowski without pay for ‘F–k you’ email to Missouri senator

    Sending it from his work email was a mistake and it's hard to argue with the suspension after that, even if I agree with the sentiment. If I sent something like that from my work email, I'd probably get fired.

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    I doubt they can just lift the blackout rule without renegotiating their broadcast contracts with all the RSNs.

    Red Sox Schedule

    Sunday night ESPN games started at 8pm for years before they moved it back to 7pm recently.

    Cleveland Indians ready to discuss changing team name

    Well, their name is Indians and they aren't named after people from India, so I would say the name isn't really fine.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    They typically offer a discounted rate of $50 for the full season around Father's Day. So I'd guess we'll see a similar deal offered this year.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    The main reason I have YouTube TV is for live sports, so it's near useless to me at the moment. The price increase just made me realize I should have canceled 2 months ago.

    Redsox.com Showing Pedro's 17K game in 1999

    Yes, subscribing to The Athletic is well worth it and I'm sure they need the support right now. I have 5 free 30-day guest passes available if anyone wants to try it out. PM me with your email address if interested.

    Women's Soccer

    I signed up for a free trial of CBS all access so I could check this out. Kind of disappointed in that they are offering zero DVR capability for the NWSL games on there - just a live feed only. Due to the scheduling and no DVR on the All Access, it's unlikely I'll be able to watch outside of...

    Womens' Basketball

    Since I'm pretty sick of hearing about how awful the MLB owners have been lately, it's really refreshing to read stuff like this: I just recently started following and watching the WNBA and the level of play is outstanding - it's a fun league and I'm looking forward to this (abbreviated) season.

    MacBook Pro 2020

    Apple will replace it for $129. Given how much of a pain it is to take it apart for a self replacement, I'd recommend just having them do it.

    Upgrade laptop to WQHD: how much would you pay?

    Depends on your eyesight. I currently have a 1080p 13" laptop at 100% scaling and I find everything is still too big. I'd like to go to 1440p at either 13 or 14 inch for my next one and would keep it at 100% (at least until my eyesight starts failing in a few more years).
