What the fuck, NHL: I can watch other teams' preseason games, tonight, but not the Flyers??

I have to wait till Wednesday afternoon to watch a replay of the game on NHL Network???

Fucking. Awesome.

Gotta love that NHL TV's "single-team" price ($112/yr) is such a bargain compared to their unlimited/all-teams price ($136).

Gotta love the various fan theories floating around, out there.
How simple is the 'Star Wars' story really? What if we weren't dealing with an innocent battle of Good versus Evil, but a battle of Good versus Wrinkled, Sperm-Hungry Maniac?

Most do. Hard to be otherwise given the lack of unity in the source material.

"Ed Feldman" from the GoToMeeting commercials looks like he's had that fro-wig for 20+ years.

Fox is really pushing Son of Zorn. When I saw the "preview" episode, a couple weeks back, all I could think was, "Fox is trying to make The Cleveland Show seem less awful."

First game of Philadelphia Flyers' preseason is tonight: no need to watch the circus that will be on regular TV, tonight.

This strikes me as one of those "good luck putting the toothpaste back in the tube" kinds of things. It's not like it's going to stop random, individual actors from posting things out to torrents. At best, it means that such posting of information will remain anonymous - rather than being prevented.
 
"The State Department’s stated interest in preventing foreign nationals—including all manner of enemies of this country—from obtaining technical data on how to produce weapons and weapon parts is not merely tangentially related to national defense and national security; it lies squarely within that interest."
In Defense Distributed v. Department of State, the government wins this round.

I agee. Now they will have little or no visibility regarding the dissemination of this information.

So, +Philips "upgraded" the Hue lighting-app. The "improvement" is enough to make me want to rip the fuckers out.

Kinda wonder what he'd have written had he waited to 9/4 (rather than 4/9)
Dear Mr Trump, It’s taken me a while to realize this and to admit it, but I’m grateful to you. For the past few months I’ve spent a good deal of time lamenting your campaign and t…

Story
Tagline
I'm cranky: deal with it.
Introduction
So, it says, "put a little about yourself here so people know they've found the correct Thomas." Well, if you've found this page, and you know who I am, you know I'm not right - so I can't be the "correct Thomas" And, if you know me, even if you didn't know this was my page, the tone of this intro would probably tell you if I'm the "correct Thomas."

Who I Circle
==========
As to circling-back: I'm not what you'd (ever) refer to as a "friend collector". I don't put a lot of people in my circles. In general, the people I have in my circles are either people I already knew from other contexts or people who commented frequently enough on my posts that it made me curious "who is this and what types of things do they post to their streams". So, if you're looking for me to circle you back, the best avenue to that is frequent-ish commentary and interesting public posts. 

Paraphrased from my FaceBook "About Me" section:
==================================
I write a *lot*. Much of what I write, I also write elsewhere. If you're curious, I post heavily at Tumbler, Blogger, Twitter and a few others. I can be found on most services as either ferricoxide or thjones2. The former is primarily personal writings and the latter is primarily work-related (read: technical) writings. If you're looking to "follow", "friend" or whatever a given site calls it, if they do searches by email address, you won't find me. My registered email address will typically be SITENAME@xanthia.com.
