Re: Ryder Hesjedal wins the Giro d'Italia, becomes first Canadian to win a Grand Tour

Great picture above. I was trying to think why it looked so different than the online coverage and then realized that everything except the road was covered in snow. We didn't get the Universal...

Re: Survivor: One World -- "Bum-Puzzled" -- 3/07/12

Bill had the most articulate comebacks to the vile that was being spewed at him that I've ever heard. He handled it very well. He's the only guy from that tribe that I can respect. I like the idea of...

Re: Expedition Impossible -- New ABC Reality Show -- Season One Thread

Agreed. Every guy on No Limits is doing something amazing. The blind guy's friend does a tremendous job of communicating with him to get him through this stuff. A couple of episodes ago they were...

Everything I've read says they're not leaving the printer market. The ink is high profits for them.

Re: Expedition Impossible -- New ABC Reality Show -- Season One Thread

I liked it. I see it as a cross between TAR and EcoChallenge. Much more physical than TAR. Burnett held an EcoChallenge in Morocco and it looks like they are covering some of the same ground and...

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

^In some ways Patton really seems to stand out, but in other ways it looks artificial. Certainly the colors pop and it's very free of any noise, grain, etc. But even my wife, who doesn't follow any...

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Is DeepDiscount running B&N now? Out of 11 items I had in my cart last night while I decided what to get, this morning I checked and 6 went up in price, 4 stayed the same, and only 1 went down ($1)....

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Not a DVD coupon, but good on toys, especially Lego sets: V7T4Y4X

The code previously worked on Lego Mindstorms sets, which is unusual, but it's no longer on their site. The code gives 30% off...

I just stuck a bunch of Blu-ray digibooks in my cart and they all worked with the B2G1 and the 10% order coupon.

Re: Hawaii Five-O -- Season Finale -- "Oia'i'o" -- 5/16/11

I really liked how they balanced each episode with the season long arc. It reminded me of the early days of NCIS in that regard. Each episode (with the exception of the season finale) could be...

Jeff Probst has said the ocean where they were at was too rough to do the types of water challenges they've done in the past.

Re: Survivor: Redemption Island -- "Too Close for Comfort" -- 5/11/11

I noticed that comment too. That goes against some of the people on this forum who say everyone that wins is a deserving winner.

Grant seemed tight with Rob, but several episodes ago he was shown...

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

I just tried entering that code directly to my cart and it said it was invalid. I could still add the 13 char code and that works and translates to the one above.

I tried your long code 50% one...

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

When you enter the 13 character code in the Coupon Code field of the shopping cart, it gets immediately translated to a 6 character code. I'd guess that 6 character code is the one we want. FWIW, I...

Re: The Amazing Race 18 -- "I Feel Like a Monkey in a Circus Parade" -- 3/27/11

Re: Are you getting an iPad? (Part 2)

I went out to buy a 32GB WiFi iPad today, but Target, Best Buy, and the Apple Store were all out stock. Might order online through the EPP store for our company and get a very small discount.

Re: Are you getting an iPad? (Part 2)

You do need a PC occasionally, but the PC ends up being the one that is used like an accessory since you're mostly just using it as an external hard drive. But I mostly agree with you - I go months...
