He has a point. If you're going to post a link in E&C, it needs to come with notes or some other form of starting discussion.

Re: electoral college histogram

Be careful of "trend-chasing" or "bounce-chasing" when touting results soon after conventions. (That goes for both woody and slick.) FiveThirtyEight has a pretty good discussion about models, and whether they should aggressively follow trends or not in this recent article . http://i0.wp.com/espnfive...

Re: Car audio issues.

My wife's car stereo was showing the same symptoms about a month ago. Particularly in heat, the audio would just cut out after about 30 seconds.

I came to the conclusion that something in the internal amplifier circuitry was going bad... and just had to replace it (I found a great deal on a refurb).

Re: Let's Play CTF! Round #22!

I'm not sure the bandwidth on my server will suffice for more than 6-8 players or so on a Friday night, when we have other activity on that same connection, which uses an old DOCSIS 2 modem.

I'd suggest using Krom's server, if it's running okay, and just use mine as a backup.
