Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: Man wants to legally change his age so he can get more dates on Tinder

So is the insurance sold by Canadian companies that have service agreements with U.S. health care providers?

Re: Man wants to legally change his age so he can get more dates on Tinder

Out of curiosity, what do you do about healthcare while in Florida? Our National health care only covers us while we're in Canada. After that we're on our own, just like you are. Most people purchase temporary insurance to cover them while they're away. I don't have to. My Union takes care of that ...

I want to be 200 on my next birthday. That way I get my free meal at Denny's and they have to pay me the check.

Re: Metro Detroit CB

I have a Radio Shack 5-watt hand-held CB that I bought many years ago. It has a standard rubber-duck antenna. Every once in a while I pull it out of mothballs just to see if I can pick up any traffic. I don't usually hear anything although once in a great while I'll pick up a faint transmission. Gra...

Re: Style Sheet comment thread

I think I figured out why it reverts to the old theme. The new theme that M.W. set is a default for anyone who isn't logged in. Once you log in the theme defaults to whatever preference is set in the User Control Panel (my UCP default was the old theme). Each user has the option to change their them...

Re: Steve Dahl to Leave WLS-AM in December

Dahl appears to have followed Garry Meier's model and is now offering three full-length podcasts per week for no charge. He previously posted 10-minute snippets for non-paying subscribers but that changed a few months ago. Meier posts three podcasts per week (Mon, Wed, Fri) with open access. Paying ...

Re: Style Sheet comment thread

When I logged in just now it reverted back to the old stylesheet. Before I logged in it displayed the new stylesheet. Strange.

Edit: Just discovered this can be customized in the UCP. Learn something new every day.

The lower the frequency, the less power is required to maintain a similar footprint.

Steve Dahl to Leave WLS-AM in December

Apparently the numbers for his afternoon-drive show never caught on.

Dahl will continue his podcast which is a joint collaboration with Cumulus Media.

Re: The President of the USA Has A Mental Illness

Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter were probably two of the most down-to-earth presidents I've seen in my lifetime. As such, both seemed like fish out of water in the high office they held. Despite having campaigned against each other in 1976, the two became best of friends later in life....so much so tha...

Re: SNL and The Donald

The show open with Kate McKinnon (as Hillary) playing the piano and singing I Will Remember You the week after the election had me scratching my head. It was a serious skit that wasn't played for laughs, and I saw it purely as a political statements. Nothing against political statements, but I watch...

Re: Leah Remini's Scientology Series

If we went to Fair Tax the tax exemption wouldn't matter. Anyone you gave money to would get it without taxes. I have long thought that a pay-as-you-go sales tax structure like Fair Tax would make more sense than the current income tax system. Sure, the price of goods would increase across the boar...

Re: The media's (and liberals') obsession over Betsy Devos

...The German system is a good model... they make the kids pick a career at the end of 8th grade and high school is chosen by what vocational they choose, then they are following their interests and not what somebody thinks they should care about... That's an interesting idea, and I think it has le...
