This is the first time I've wanted an eclaire. Excellent looking product. Excellent photography. Excellent design/branding.
If you can pronounce the brand name correctly on the first try, I'll order you one.

Just watched the most horrific documentary about Seattle. Every single one of their city council members should be take out back..

So what do you do with people like the person about 7 minutes in?

Edit: So they treat opioid addiction with opioids that aren't as strong? Not at all what I expected, but makes sense for why they'd have to be on it for life. A trip report of Buprenorphine. It's still gets you high apparently! :clench:

Not familiar with Diablo or video games but I'll take a guess: This franchise is pure PC and they want to move it to pure Mobile? Yea, that would piss me off. It's just not the same experience. You can see the guys on stage warm into their "oh shit" feeling...
spot on....and you know nothing about the franchise! That's so perceptive.

They basically alienated their main fan base in favor of going after the mainstream market. Looks like they doubled down...

I took French for 7 years. 6th grade through 12th grade.

I'll send you my address on Messenger.

Greg R is building some huge infrastructure for his job five minutes from the warehouse. Maybe we can get a good picture of me and my free Maitre Choux while that genius engineer bakes in the sun. Make it happen @amp0193.

Got this emailed me today...


Supposedly a "case study" on how an author sold thousands of books and hit the NYTimes Best Seller List.

What a disappointing read, and even some of the commenters made note.

99% of the information in this "how to" is absolutely non-repeatable for an indie author ... and it starts from the very first tip which entails blurbs from the world's biggest authors.

Like oh yea, let me look through my Rolodex and give Stephen King or David Balducci a call so I can ask them to read my book and give me a blurb!

Give me a F*cking break.

From the publicity, to the money spent, to the time spent. For the average indie author with no publisher backing, limited (to zero) resources, this case study is a joke. The only thing that was truly actionable from an indie perspective was to use Goodreads Giveaways (which I have done in the past).

In short the article can be summed up like this:

Q: Want to know how to make $1 million dollars fast? A: Start with $10 million.

Gee, thanks for nothing.

For the record, his recording matched google translate, but Maitre Choux wouldn't deliver outside of London.

Not sure how accurate this is, but pretty disturbing on multiple levels...

It used to be a big thing now nobody cares about it anymore.

As long as U.S. can print money and keep its asset prices supported global investors are happy to play the game.

The global asset market is the new matrix. Goldbugs and short sellers have been massacred ever since 2011. To make money we have to take the blue pill daily and believe that it is real.

Exporting photos and video from iPhoto. It takes forever. I can open the files in Finder and copy and paste in5 seconds... why does dragging and dropping from iPhoto require waiting until I can get my state pension :S :S

Australian TV Channel 9 has a program called "Secrets of the Money Masters", can you guess what it is about from the title. You have no chance guessing unless you are as cynical as me. It is all a big sales pitch for selling insurance products, income protection etc. Wankers,but what do you expect, real secrets on TV? Just needed to get it off my chest.

Cease and desist! Can’t imagine the Kumar brothers have sold enough copies to afford a legal response let alone a battle. Take em down MJ :fistbump:
