  1. Today
  2. Deceks, CONGRATULATIONS to your son, to you, your wife and your daughter. Something that fantastic does not happen without total support from a great family! I am sure you son is proud of his accomplishment, and your entire family can be proud of how you stood together! That's as good as it gets!
  3. Yesterday
  4. Hahaha you beat me to it
  5. I see a 9 or 10 win season. Hope I am not being too optimistic. Canada's offense has plenty of toys to play with thanks to Les Miles (and Orgeron to some extent for last recruiting class). I look for the offense to still be solidly founded on the running game but with a lot more diversity in play calling and both confidence and competence in the passing game. Aranda's defense I think will be hungry. With Washington, Smith, and others leaving and the depth concerns at linebacker, I hope we have some players that will wow us. This team might more resemble the Saints with a solid, diverse offense that overcomes a defense with holes in it. We need excitement to spark in the minds of recruits for 2018 and beyond that LSU is the place for them to be.
  6. Interesting, long read... not sure at this point what comes of it. https://t.co/8rvgXVmXvk
  7. Last week
  8. I'm sure there are people out there who might help them slip and fall a little bit.
  9. It sounds like he got kicked out of school and couldn't get back in: https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/isaiah-washingtons-coach-weighs-future
  10. We need pitching.
  11. I was at the Catholic student center on the campus of Fla. State U. in Tallahassee. They had the TV on at 2 am or so. I was going to be a high school Sr. in Sept., but I was at a summer program they hosted called "Math Camp". I majored in math at USL, and migrated into the computer industry. I view a computer as an electronic number machine, an enjoyable environment for a math major. Computers require a power source and while coal had been burned to produce steam that had powered machines, that power source would not yield a computer. We had to wait for electricity. The reason is that steam has pressure, and pressure can move objects like a piston, but steam does NOT have POLARITY. Electricity has polarity, it has positive and negative charges. The computer memory locations can hold that charge, and change the charge when acted on by an electronic circuit that performs a specific function, as long as the power supply does not go off. If you allow a positive charge to represent the number 1, and a negative charge to represent a 0, you can build an electronic circuit that can perform arithmetic. Similarly, if you let + represent "true" and - to represent "false", you can build a circuit that can solve "truth table" problems like "if a is true, then b is false". The history of computing has been the search for better materials to build the circuits in, so the computers become more reliable, and designing more complex operations into circuits so the programming task on the humans becomes easier, and miniaturization of the circuits to make the computers smaller, faster, and cheaper. It was a fascinating industry in which to work from 1973 - 2013. The fundamental invention that launched this industry came in 1937, from a masters thesis paper by an electrical engineering student at MIT. Building the first computer occurred during WW II in both the US and England, and they were used for code breaking and artillery ballistic tables. The cost was very high, they used vacuum tubes in the US, the computer took up most of a floor in a building. There is a good movie called "The Imitation Game" that is about the development of the computer in England, led by Allan Turing. The most prestigious award in computing to this day is the Turing Award. You can also see an early US computer called Eniac: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENIAC Nothing to do with the moon landing, but we would not have gotten to the moon without a computer. Since it was my industry, I wanted to know how it got started, so I did a little research a few years back when I was teaching some recent college grads to sell software for the company I worked for at the time.
  12. Jackson isn't all that far from Oxford..... just saying...
  13. Dachsie, I'd be crazy during a remodel. I'm such a creature of habit. Hope it goes well for you!
  14. Maybe not alone....but certainly not part of a large group. The show is sort of like a soap - if you start at the beginning it's easier to get involved. It really is a great story.
  15. Interesting, never heard of it. That it involves Tom Cruise is enough for me to check it out on IMDB, later.
  16. Internet rumor is 4 years, $45 million. $21.5 mill guaranteed and $15 mill signing bonus.
  17. I hate it when my coke goes missing. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/crime/article162323298.html This is soooo Florida.
  18. Busted... again. http://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/dekalb-county/notorious-86-year-old-jewel-thief-arrested-again/563877946
  19. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/dog-saves-deer-long-island-sound-video_us_596dbdcae4b010d77673588e The story and video has gone viral. It's easy to see why.
  20. College football players aren't always viewed in the most favorable light. Happy to see these kids getting some good, positive recognition and cograts to Danny http://wuerffeltrophy.org/2017-watch-list/
  21. Hmmm. Bottom of the SEC spends around $20 mil a year. Middle tier (LSU in this one) spend $30 mil a year. Three schools stand far above the rest, Auburn and Georgia spend around $40 mil a year, then at the top Bama spends $56 mil a year, almost double what the middle tier spends! http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_a30b6a30-68d8-11e7-ac09-573e82e64c5f.html
  22. He's not the only one who thinks so..... http://www.espn.com/college-football/insider/story/_/id/19804797/phil-steele-why-sec-was-dethroned-college-football-toughest-conference
  23. Don't beat Bama 2 years in a row...
  24. I did see that play, the big guy can rumble. An yes, the 9-4 Ga Tech. team was beat by Pitt (37-34). And once again, over 400 yds total offense, by Pitt.
  25. I see the name Marcell and immediately think Jerry Clower "Mah-cell Ledbetter"
  26. Thanks for posting.
