    Bob is almost 100% out the door. He wants a 9M+ contract and his attitude has been so shitty this year that he got an internal suspension for one game. I can't imagine him sticking around unless we win the cup, and even then I am not sold. Panarin is a bit weirder but I think a deep run could keep him around. I think most realistic is we hold onto Werenski, Duchene, Dzingle, and maybe Panarin. I could see Bob, Wennberg, and Panarin being gone in some combination for a new goalie and some pieces.

    I'm probably going to be doing a similar splitting up of light and color. Light color themes for everything on my work machine because I'm only going to be using it during times where it is light out (in theory, RIP living in the north where it is dark when I get and leave work in the winter) and dark themes on everything on my personal computer. For websites, I'll probably stick with the dark theme since I'm more likely to be using them after work hours than during work hours. Not sure how it is going to work out but there's only one way to find out

    This was pretty much my first thought. It is like when malicious sites redirect you a million times to make sure you can't get back to the site you want unless you hit back a million times. I can't think of a single way this is actually useful and a million ways for this to be abused.

    My wet dream of a second round: CBJ vs Boston, Carolina vs Isles, Colorado vs Vegas, Blues vs Dallas. I think NBC's brains would melt.

    You're fine. I got up at 3:30am to see off my partner on a flight after being up most the night celebrating. 3 hours of sleep and a hangover later I'm sure I phrased that comment in the least-understandable way possible. I'll come back in like an hour after I have coffee and attempt to clean it up.

    Yup. We traded with Ottawa for him and Dzingle for Anthony Duclaire and some high draft picks

    A second thought coming less as a CBJ fan and more as a hockey fan: I am so excited to see if teams start gambling more around the trade deadline. Columbus had 2 or 3 Unrestricted Free Agents (UFAs) in 2 time Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovski and star forward Artemi Panarin and I think someone else (sorry, still mentally fried from celebrating last night). Then at the trade deadline we traded away almost all our draft picks as well as solid AHL players for MORE UFAs in great forward Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingle. I believe Nash is also a UFA at the end of this season. Basically we gambled the future of our team for this season because it was a foregone conclusion that Panarin and Bobrovski are going to walk this year and so we are going all in while we have them. And it clearly is paying off. I wonder if other teams will make similar trades and pushes. I hope so. I think the boom or bust trades could make for interesting storylines (also bc we are looking like a boom so I want to see a team try it and bust and laugh at them)

    Columbus Blue Jackets have never won 3 games in a playoff series, let alone won one. They’ve existed as a franchise for 18 years.

    No presidents trophy winner has ever been swept in the first round in the history of the NHL.

    Tampa Bay Lightning tied for the most wins in a regular season ever with 62, and cruised into playoffs nearly 20 pts ahead of the second place team in the league.

    What a fucking story. It’s been a long 10 years rooting for them, but this payoff is pure ecstasy.

    Plus #1 scorer and Hart Trophy finalist Kucherov deciding he wants to behead Nutivara and getting himself a suspension before coming to Columbus. Things I’m expecting:

    1. 3-0 series lead for jackets going into game 4.
    2. Kucherov having a target on his back, mostly from Anderson, Jenner, and Foligno.
    3. A clean 4-0 series sweep from CBJ

    A “big hammer” solution Tildes has is Deimos isn’t afraid to turn the site back to invite-only. Its something that happens every time there is a mass exodus from reddit. Lock down the site and let new users trickle in over time to make sure it doesn’t get flooded with users that exceeds the moderation capabilities. I image if bot accounts became a big problem he’d do something like that again. It’s not a perfect or easy solution and it still has loopholes, but it’s a solution that reddit would never try because they are a company there to make $$, and tildes is a project to make a community

    I know very little about him from solid sources so take all this with a mountain of salt. But from what I have heard from friends I generally trust is that Assange has a god complex and thinks he shits gold because Wikileaks was viewed as a big deal in 2015 (i think thats when it was big?). He probably thought there was no way Ecuador would HAVE THE GAULL to kick him out. How could they. He’s julien mother fucking assange. Whelp. Now he’s going to jail. So. Fucking rip you pos person

    If he has tenure, which I assume he does since he has been teaching at the same place since 1998, he absolutely can be a fucking moron and still teach there. Not saying he is a moron (though I personally think he is in everything I’ve read of his which admittedly doesn’t include his self help book), but you can be fucking terrible at your job and if you have tenure it is so fucking hard to get fired.

    I haven't played around with Wine so I won't say this for sure. But I will say any abstraction layer sends alarm bells off in my head that it won't work first casual users. I once had a user using virtualbox who couldn't understand why our excel plugin wasn't installed. He didn't understand that software on his main machine wasn't on his VM, or how to install things on his VM. It was painful explaining. Again, I don't know anything about Wine so I could be wrong and I'll be first to admit it.

    I'm going to take a slightly different approach from the author and say what I see as another huge hurdle for Linux to hit general users: Microsoft Office. I spent 4 years developing plugins for Microsoft Office and let me tell you that Microsoft made it as hard as fucking possible to do what you want. It's a fucking nightmare. BUT it runs on both macOS and Windows and over time the friction of a doc going from one OS to the other has really lessened. But try opening a heavily-formatted doc from Word or Excel in LibreOffice, make changes, send it back to the original user, and tell me how it goes. It's fucking awful. Don't get me wrong, I love Linux. I prefer it and will constantly be doing things to get my family onto Mint or Ubuntu or whatever tech-illiterate, GUI-filled distro comes out. But until either Libre <=> Office is easier or the cloud versions of Google <sheets,docs, powerpoint, etc> is as full-featured as the desktop version, it probably won't make it to mainstream at a non-software corporate level.

    EDIT: After talking to people here and as well as offline, I think the combo of office365 web interface and google office stuff are enough for most users and so if the other point of "its hard to install and you can't buy laptops with linux pre-installed at major commercial retailers like Best Buy."
