Belated happy 20th to the webpage~ I was drinking Cointreau and sparkling water, does that count as bubbly for a toast?

For real check out the Netflix Original Marvel series at least, they're set in the same cinematic marvel movie universe but they're not super obvious about it, Start with Daredevil Season 1, after that I think it's best to watch them in the order they released, which was Jessica Jones, Daredevil season 2, Luke Cage, Iron Fist. That should keep you busy for the trial month at least X3 The series remind me of the adults-only MAX offshoot Marvel had some time ago, which was in a variation of their main universe but darker and more restrained in realism, you'd never see the Aquarian in there.

Oh and anecdotally HP has been the worst luck for me. Cool hardware ideas and design, like stylus screens and what not back when, but the most fragile over time and the most filled with adware.

A refurbished Macbook Air from like 2012-13 , what I use now, goes for like 280-440. But if you're used to windows, it might be too much of a hassle to switch- still the hardware is great.

Yeah, Netflix movies available is very hit or miss, mostly miss, in the same way if you had HBO and Showtime, you were gonna miss a lot.
I think of it more as a way of taking in tv series and original series, and if there's a movie I really want I check there but am resigned I'll probably go pay for it ala carte on Amazon.

Did you get an email from Target? Maybe it got put in the spam folder? Never mind, I'll just send it again.

And YAY!! For kitten time and Jess time. :D <3

My email? I check it--well, I got your comment sent there, and here I am.

Snail-mail I check maybe 3 times a week. Carrier pigeon never, the cats ate them.

I was mistaken. Lenovo is good, it's Asus and Acer that are awful. David just got a Dell and thus far is pleased with it.

I've liked the new MST3K A LOT, though I may not be able to finish The Christmas That Almost Wasn't. It's such a terrible movie that I don't think that I can even get through the MST'd version. However, I am impressed that the new series is closed-captioned. I certainly will miss fewer jokes this way!

Bill, how often do you check your email? Asking for a friend. ;)

I just signed up for streaming, since I was waiting for May 1st. When I went through the one-step process of signing, I was told "Includes your 1st month of streaming free!" That's...a thing you tell people BEFORE the sign up, Netflix...

I had HP laptops and they took a lickin' and kept on beatin', heck my mom still uses my netbook for her homeworks. Granted mine are ancient so build quality could've done way down since then. Funnily I switched to a Dell because it was powerful and cheap at the moment I was shopping, and it did break but under warranty and it's been ticking fine ever since. Hopefully your new Dell works even better! Tell us when you get the streaming so we can drown you in recommendations (though Lil's will be more helpful since we get a different catalog I mean the new MST3K is not here yet and I hope it makes it, if my old college buddies are still translating for Netflix here HOLY CATS The Real Ghostbusters is in Netflix now gotta go

I skipped the Dells as I figured they were out of my price range, but, yeah, there are ones I could afford before stealing Friskies from the kids! Thanks!

David's former employers at the PC/laptop repair shop told him to avoid two brands: Acer and Lenovo. I can add to that my negative experiences with an Emerson tablet as well. They told him that the most reliable/least-often-seen-by-them are Dell and HP, though given what you've gone through, it's understandable why you wouldn't want another HP. FWIW, I've had no problems with this HP laptop I got nineteen months ago, and the only reason the previous one had to be replaced was due to the screen getting cracked in the accident. (I humbly swear on The MST3K Colossal Episode Guide that this is NOT a paid endorsement.) Do I wish this was a Mac instead? Absolutely, but unless I get a $1200 windfall, this HP laptop serves my purposes more than adequately.

I always enjoy the longer-form stories about your day, I'm fairly sure I ran into your site because of the InExOb, when it was already over, but before you started with the quicktopic board? Anyway where was I oh yeah I liked your page first because of InExOb but reading about your day has always ruled

Darlin, how do you not have AAA? And might this latest incident prove that you need a somewhat more reliable phone? I solemnly promise this is NOT part of a larger scheme to separate you from your money. FWIW, my iPhone only cost $36 once I agreed to get locked into a zero-hassle Verizon contract. I know, it's the end of the month and your hours have been cut--plus now you need a new tire (David works at Big O [~NTB in your region], should I see if he can find you a deal?)--but between the woodchucks and Parking Lot Danger Zone...just sayin.

I now work on an aircraft carrier that is also a museum! It wasn't at Midway, though, it was at Leyte Gulf. So I guess it is less cool.

My Army Air Corps vet dad was adamantly opposed to getting a Japanese car when we were shopping for one last year, no matter how many times I reminded him that my Nissan Altima & Honda Accord were the most reliable, lowest-maintenance cars I've ever owned. Thankfully I love the Ford Fusion we got. Too bad that his patriotism--and naiveté--is what has been used to deftly manipulate him into contributing to countless right-wing super PACs, to say nothing of the Tea Party, Republicans, and NRA. :(
