Quote from: Walks_At_Night on November 09, 2020, 02:11:01 PMYep. I found Dr. Paul back in the spring when he had no more than about 100 subscribers and he had some panic stricken Father on the horn with a young child in the ICU with the coof. I think most would have sloughed the caller off with "You really need to consult with the Pediatrician's on site there" but he waded right on in and handled the crisis with complete confidence.
QuoteI'm still trying to figure out how he is attending medical school at Harvard when he lives in NYC. It's not like taking an online class down at the Community College. There are cadavers and such.
Quote from: Roswells, Art on November 09, 2020, 02:11:17 PMDon't feel so bad, I'm sure she's happy someone posted in her thread. I think I can help you with the whole fruitcake discussion problem. I too want to make one but they don't have all the ingredients at the local store so it's something I'll have to source over the internet and it's way too late to start making fruitcake in time for X-mas. I want to make the kind that you soak with bourbon once a week for a few months. It was an old-timey recipe that I found on the internet a few years ago. I can't find it at the moment but I'll keep looking.
Quote from: K_Dubb on November 09, 2020, 02:24:38 PMIs it too late? I know the traditional date for making Christmas puddings, the ancestors to fruitcake, is sometime in late November, called "Stir-Up Sunday" after the scripture reading for that day which begins with those words. I won't be thinking about mine for another few weeks. I got a whole set of graduated springform tube pans in anticipation this year, though, including one giant that should yield at least a 10-pounder.

Quote from: albrecht on November 09, 2020, 05:04:02 PMWhat is the quality? 55" 4k for $149 here? Claiming paired with Netflix, Disney, and HBO (I assume one would need to subscribe separately though. But, then again, would help the ChiComs to pair with fellow-travelers....)
Quote from: WOTR on November 10, 2020, 07:37:27 PMI would imagine that those prices are to get the last few hold outs (like me) to say "wow, that is a great price for a smart television. I should purchase one and pretend that I don't mind them monitoring everything that I watch, when I watch it, and what I look at."They should just give you the fu##ing television so that they can learn everything about you and sell it to their "trusted partners." I hope that this one comes with a microphone to listen for commands and a camera to watch for "smart gestures". Hate to have somebody reach for the remote to turn up the volume when you could just make a gesture. And the only cost is a camera in your living room / bedroom and all of your privacy. In short, you are the product.

Quote from: K_Dubb on November 09, 2020, 01:57:23 PM...I am driving brig mad with rage and that she is is dancing about her apartment gnashing her teeth and tearing her hair in fury. Eventually I plan to bring the discussion around to fruitcake and hopefully send her over the edge for good.
