    Looking for a small (21-24”) television

    These apparently no longer really exist except for a LG 24” version. The issue is I need it to have a center stand, not two legs. Can I use a random computer monitor as a TV to play YouTube TV/Apple TV+/Netflix? How’s that work without any keyboards or whatever.

    A few dumb docking station questions

    I've never used a docking station for anything more than plugging a laptop into it at work and it feeding a monitor. That station let me put the actual laptop into it, no chords. But I am looking to redo my home desk as my current iMac is getting long in the tooth and will buy a Mac Mini to...

    College football 2020 - Week 1

    Well whatever season this will be officially kicks off in full this Thursday. A lot of bizarre matchups you'd never see regularly so some interesting games potentially. None of these games feature any exciting team (shoutout to one of my alma maters playing at UTEP though!). But I mean, I'll...

    Let’s predict the 2020 Red Sox record

    This season will be the most bizarre of any we have ever seen. This Red Sox roster is ... interesting. Offense might be ok but who again are these guys we have pitching? So, just curious where everyone sees this team finishing. Let’s pretend the “full” season gets played, even if you believe...

    Help me secure my Google account

I get at least 10 wrong emails daily - not counting the thousands I have marked as spam or whatever from newsletters and sales emails people signed up for,.

    WordPress blog posts - any knowledgeable users here?

    I run a WordPress site (not a .com site but I host it) and am in need to quickly export all the blog posts (there are more than 300) into Word or .txt files or anything that a normal non-web person can open on the computer.

    iOS 11.3 bookmark issues

    Last weekend I updated my iPhone and iPad to iOS 11.3. Since then I'm having terrible bookmark issues. When I go to create a new bookmark, it will show up for a few seconds and then disappear. Or sometimes it even creates a bookmark to another recently-visited site that I never bookmarked...

    Jerry Remy: Players should 'learn baseball language'

    During tonight's game, Remy said translators shouldn't be allowed to take mound visits along with coaches. O'Brien asked him why and he said pitchers should learn basic baseball language with coaches instead. This is quickly growing into a big story as I saw an ESPN headline and just had a...

    Needing iPhone charging dock to replace bedside clock

    My trust old clock radio finally died. I'd like to take this opportunity to get a device that I can use as a iPhone charging station so I can keep my phone on my nightstand instead of on the floor while charging overnight. I'd be fine without a clock on the device I guess, my main need is the...
