  2. Did a long overdue update to the site, so let me know if you see anything wrong. I was holding off because of some big changes but I don't think any cheese has moved.

  3. Taxes filed. Our income was up 7.5 pct from last year. Our federal taxes went down $14. I feel stimulated.

    1. You're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just look at your refund and no other factors.

  4. Any chance of re-opening the keeper window on the fantasy baseball league? I apparently didn't save mine like I thought I did?

    1. I didn't do anything on the website, just sent my picks via mail. In any case, I'd ask over email cause I don't think RPZ checks this site on the regular anymore.

      1. I thought there was a set keepers option on the site at one point?

        I might be mixing up my leagues that I'm in.

        1. I think there is, but that he does it manually. I could very well be wrong about that, but I didn't hear anything was wrong after I sent him my keepers.

  5. I'm putting this here. I feel out of my depth and a little overwhelmed at the moment.

    Alcoholism, Anxiety, and Venting SelectShow
    1. You didn't ask for advice, and I don't really have any anyway, but I'll keep you and your family in our prayers.

    2. Alcoholism in the Family SelectShow
      1. Thanks spooky, this stuff is always hard, and we've got a fair dose of conflict avoidance tendencies ourselves. Thanks for sharing, and I hope things turn around for your family soon.

  6. Phil Mackey had Glen Perkins on the radio this afternoon and had a great conversation about pitching, analytics, etc. I know they podcast and social media the hell out of these things so I think it can easily be found on all the Skor North platforms if interested.

    1. I'm amused/amazed that Dazzle seems to be on board all the use of analytics this spring in helping the batters/pitchers. I don't think he's been a proponent in the past, but even he seems to be seeing the advantages.

      If there's one thing I've noticed, it's that the organization appears to be doing a MUCH better job of preaching the same story to players of all levels. Hopefully gone are the days of players being brought up that don't seem to be on the same page as the big league players.

  7. PC question: If I add my new USB 802.11ac wireless adapter without removing/disabling my current 802.11n adapter, should the OS be able to decide to use the new adapter? I don't want to immediately get rid of the old one because I think it may also be handling Bluetooth, and I'd hate to lose my keyboard and mouse during the interim.

    1. I think so. I see three wireless connections available on my Windows laptop, with only one active at the moment. I'm not sure offhand how to pick the wireless adapter but looks like it's possible.

      1. Looks like Windows has some obscure system in how it determines adapter precedence, so I found it worked to just disable the old adapter. That said, the new one is only using 2.4 GHz and not 5 GHz, which is frustrating, but the speed is showing as much better. We'll see when gigabit is installed on Saturday.

  8. Nine Years ago tomorrow, Joe Mauer signed his big contract, an 8-year contract starting the next season.
    I'll remember this date a long time because I was in the hospital for most of the day with day-old AJR.

    The same day, this passed the House of Representatives and I had a lot of work to do when I got of off my week of Paternity leave.
