    Home Laptop Recommendations

    You'll be pretty limited in screen quality at that price range. If you don't have any special software needs (including MS Office), and you'll always have WiFi, you might get some good mileage with a Chromebook. We have one that we use for web/streaming, and it supports multi-login really easily.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I saw some speculation that if Quatar and Jeddah were reversed, we might see Hamilton take another engine with the 5-place penalty attached and run each for only two races. But Jeddah looks unfavorable for overtakes, so people think it's unlikely.

    4G Android phone megathread

    On my Pixel XL, 3XL, and now on the 6 Pro I set the animation scales to 0.5x in Developer Settings to make the phone feel more snappy. It never caused a problem on the XL or the 3XL, but it caused big problems on the 6 Pro. I set the Animator Duration Scale back to 1x. The problems I was...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    Feel free to delete this, but should this be a monthly thread rather than annual? It's fairly big in a partial month

    4G Android phone megathread

    Interesting on the no-Sprint thing. With the Sprint-TMobile merger, I think your next phone will outlive the distinct network in any case. It may just be the CDMA portions that the phones don't support? I was surprised to see the 5a on the list. The 6 Pro does feel quite nice, the screen is...

    4G Android phone megathread

    The I can't find the link now, but I think all phones sold on the Fi site support the network switching now, including the Samsung models. The Moto G Power is a fairly low end phone, and the 2021 edition has been panned as a downgrade on the 2020 edition. I definitely preferred the...

    4G Android phone megathread

    Are you seeing the 5a for sale? The 5 was a much lower-spec phone that sold at a higher price than they are asking for the 6. The 5a is (I think) a great deal at $450, they added a much bigger battery and water resistance vs the 4a.

    4G Android phone megathread

    Anyone else order a Pixel 6 (or Pro)? I have a Pro coming tomorrow, reviews seem positive so far. My 3XL was going to get cut off at work in a few months since updates have stopped at the 3 year mark.

    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    I turned this on around the 60 minute mark. The Carles Gil goal was quite nice. The six minutes of stoppage time, that expanded to eight in practice, was a bit much.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I'd rate it as "grid penalty to the sausage, DotD to the halo"

    Hey, the Foxboro Revolutions are playing again!

    Can someone refresh me on how transfers work in MLS terms these days? Does this go to the league, to the Krafts? Can the Revs spend this on other players' transfer fees without counting against their cap?

    2020-21 College Hockey thread

    I'm hoping to get back to Matthews this year. I saw that RPI is not allowing non-students to attend this year, and I doubt they'll be the only one go to that way before the season starts.

    Dark Mode?

    If we're talking about site themes, the mobile site only has page navigation at the bottom. So if/when it decides to open on the first post of a thread, you have to scroll and scroll to get to the page controls. Can we add that to the top?

    Sports Cards Mania

    I finally made it to Cooperstown in 2019, the week before Memorial Day. We had the place almost to ourselves, minus running into one tour group at the Babe Ruth exhibit with a really fun guide. The only letdown of the day was that they had their T206 Wagner off display, because it was going to...

    Sports Cards Mania

    Had an unexpected bonus come in for a project I shipped at work, and decided on a less than practical purchase, the bookends of the '54 set which has always been a favorite of mine. Not the best condition but the centering/framing on these looked good to me and the color is good.

    Sports Cards Mania

    As I said before, I've been out of card collecting for almost 30 years. After unloading most of my old cards I've been organizing what's left and picking up a few cards that I always wanted but never picked up for whatever reason. For the more recent stuff, I have no connection with the sets...

    NBA expansion likely

    I believe that is a yes, and was part of the deal when the now Thunder moved.

    Sports Cards Mania

    Another supplies question. I bought a nice box with a flip-top, and it holds cards nicely in toploaders or penny sleeves, but the top isn't high enough to accomodate the one touch holders. And I got a (relatively cheap) slotted top-loading box that holds the graded card holders but is too wide...
