    I've interacted with Tom (aka Gruff, formally Wooden Nickle) almost since the beginning of his forum days when he joined xtremevbtalk.com back in August of 2003, just two months after I did.
    We both independently found our way to our new home here not that long ago.
    Another good one gone too soon. I'm glad he found us and stuck around these past 13 years.

    Did you find an abandoned house in Detroit to squat in or someplace a bit nicer?

    That is exactly what I am looking forward to. Im at the "buying a house" age and my options in Southern California are $400k for a condo, or $600k+ for a house in a bad part of town.

    The only way it would be more appropriate would be if it was grinning maniacally and packing a rocket launcher.

    Detroit isn't that bad. You are very unlikely to get shot more than twice. Oh, that's Chicago...

    Seriously, though, understandably Detroit gets a bad rap. However, a few miles out and it's OK (Just OK). It's feasible to work in the Detroit area and live in Canada or Ohio. A Few miles West is Ann Arbor (which is OK if you like that sort of hippy thing).

    From what I understand downtown Detroit is very much like Dallas. It is just when you start to go outside of downtown.

    Downtown Detroit is very nice. They have been spending a **** ton of money to clean it up and make it nice. But yet the outskirts are bad. Steer clear.

    Also I am not moving to Detroit. I am moving to central Michigan. The safe part.

    I just downloaded this cool Google Chrome extension called Grammarly. Let's see how this works.

    Original:
    Hello y'all i am tiping a sentence to see witch words get

    Changed:
    Hello, y'all I am typing a sentence to see which words get fixed.

    Does it handle regional dialects?

    For instance, if you were in Pennsylvania would it change "y'all" to "yunz?"

    Ouch. If it makes you feel any better, I have about the same amount of faith in the Browns to win a game as I do for the Saints.

    Re: Post Race!

    I just took a few minutes to look back at the Browns' record. Since 2008 they've averaged exactly 4 wins per season (including this one).

    Since their return in '99 they've averaged 4.83 wins per season.

    And with the exception of a game in Chicago in '01 I haven't actually purchased a Browns ticket since '94, although in '95 I had a press pass and got on the field for free. Still kicking myself for blowing off the home finale in '95 when the fans were tearing out seats and hurling them onto the field.

    Re: Post Race!

    I have some bad news.

    We just left the doctor's office and they did an ultrasound. The baby is only measuring at 34 weeks, the embryonic fluid is only at 6(whatever measurement for the fluid) when she should be at 16, and they also found signs of meconium in her fluid. So they are not allowing her to carry to term and are inducing her at midnight.

    If y'all have religion, please pray for her.

    Not sure what most of that means, but hoping it all turns out well.

    Isn't 34 weeks something like 8 months? That's not so terribly early, right?

    I've escaped my house for a few minutes. She isn't slept through the night, which is normal, but it causes tensions nonetheless. But I really needed to update my businesses Quicken, I was already about a month behind before the baby
