1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Which is not exactly the case.
    The pattern I see is that the more info you give people the more crap they're going to ask.
    Keep them all in the dark I say.


    When I do get a child, I shall name him Qlkb'doztlb and it will have the pronunciation of "Bob".

    Here's a Mitchell and Ness repro, and they usually verify those on actual specimens, though I can't find any photos.

    Reporters make errors too. One of them seems to have mistook navy for black, and I don't know where the gold came from.

    Todd Radom, who's about as knowledgeable as you can be on the history of baseball uniforms, thinks they're black and gold. He's been in discussions with Dressed to the Nines about it.

    I can't get over this fucking guy who drives an early 2000s dodge caravan and puts a club on the steering wheel. There's even a sticker on the window that tells you this car is protected by The Club.

    Might be something to send Paul Lukas' way for resolution. Uni watch could probably make something of the dispute.

    At least 10 years with no theft. Seems like a Club success story to me.

    This was mentioned briefly in the March 22 Uni Watch. (It's in the Baseball News part of the Ticker.)

    He probably also swears by wearing a fanny pack to amusement parks in the summer and insists on checking all the weekly grocery circulars for the best price on bananas. It's practical, predictable and it works man… never fuck with functionality.

    For the record I completely agree with you. ;)

    Am I the only one that doesn't have a password for their phone? I can't think of a reason I'd need one.

    Your phone has your email.

    Your email will tell a thief what institutions you do business with and allow them to reset the passwords.

    I didn't do a password until I got a 6 with touchid. It's actually faster to unlock your phone by pressing home and keeping your finger there than it is to wake the phone up and swipe.

    To prevent cops who pull you over for speeding from reading those naughty texts you send your girl/boyfriend.

    And if you're smart enough to have two factor authentication for password changes, you're going to have either your phone or your email be that second factor most of the time.

    The scary thing I heard recently:

    Google lets you set up SMS as a 2-factor notification (and if you have android, your Google account is the final lock on your phone).

    If you steal someones phone and put the SIM card in a different phone, you can receive the SMS right there (or if you have iphone style text popups, you can see the 2-factor code right there). Then you can use that to break into the account on a computer, and use your newly reset password to login to the phone like you were the original owner.

    But most thieves are too dumb for that...but they are not too dumb to open your browser and order shit from amazon using your saved credit card.
