Conflicting reports. Reuters stayed away from it from awhile but now they are saying there is a suspect.

What exactly qualifies you to be a "reporter" now? I have a cell phone and tablet with Twitter...do I qualify as a "reporter"? What about a "source"?

Kids are at the circus, I'm at home with the little one, as its too late for him to go to the circus... Plus not a fan. The only circus I have enjoyed in my life is Cirque Du Soleil.

Hey all, just peeking my head in Things continue to very slowly return to normalcy here in Boston, though everyone is still being cautious. I went to a Boston Magic the Gathering Meetup tonight, had a lot of fun. Hope you're all well!

While on Reddit I learned about originaltrilogy dot com. They deal with the preservation of the original trilogy, meaning being able to watch them the way they were first released. The only problem is there really isn't much content. A lot of info, but not much in the content department. I was also directed to myspleen dot org but you need an invite to get in. I received an invite and turns out it is a torrent site for Star Wars fans.

I believe the Sprint version and Verizon version use the same battery. This is an awesome deal!

Several years ago I scored the original trilogy theatrical release versions on eBay. Cover art and all. They were ported from old trilogy laserdiscs. Remember those? Anyway, they're dirty, grimy, white blocks around the space ships and yes, Han shot first.

Haven't watched them in years, but it's nice to have them

That sucks Kelmar. I've had a few of those as well over the last couple of years. Problem for me, is I am salary, so it's not like I get the hours worked, plus the vacation time. Hope that's not the same for you, and you can at least get a nice little check out of it.

Morning all and TGIF for the Friday folks... Life has gotten in the way for the last couple of weeks, but feeling like we are getting back to normal... I hope.
Almost done playing catch up of the first 2 seasons of Game of Thrones... And hoping for a quiet weekend.

Also, had a talk with the wife this week... Apparently we need a vacation. Lol. Now on to figure out where to go, what to do... And how do I surprise her?
Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend..?!

Hm. Apparently the entire city of Boston is on lockdown. The entire MBTA network is closed, businesses closed, etc etc etc.

There is a thread on News (blocked at work), but some one is listening to scanners and posting live updates and getting news and reports out 15-20 minutes faster than any major news outlet.

Definitely worth taking a look at -- you'll see it when you get there.

Good morning all - TGIF!

For those interested, there's talk in the PCA area about this with locals.
Scary, for sure. DC is often a target of terror/violence, but I've never experienced it while living here.
Feel for those folks.

Is anyone here a train enthusiast or know someone who is and would like this for a gift?

Old man is... But no idea of it's something he'd enjoy. He seems to stick to trains themselves.

Hey Ryan, have you thought about a weekend getaway to a bed & breakfast? Doesn't have to be a 10-day vacation to recharge... we got a great deal (half price) on a B&B getaway on livingsocial and will be in the North Georgia Mountains in time for the leaves to change this fall. Only an hour away from home

Halon: I know of a private railway in Nashville that does excursions throughout the year... I bet their little station would LOVE to display that!

trains are cool, but I'm not a collector of them. I collect knives, and Cards.

Yeah some crazy stuff.

Had to leave work early today, my wife called and my son is complaining that it burns to pee. Last time he got a UTI it moved to his kidney, AND was medically resistant. Spent a week in the hospital, with most of it trying to find an antibiotic that would work.

So this time we aren't taking any chances, so she's taking him right away to get a culture. Hopefully we stay on top of it, I DON'T want to go through that again.
