    I don't do daily, but my best three RBs in my money league were Murray, Ingram, and Rawls. I'm just going to assume that I'm fucked.

    It's an IDP league and I've been rolling without a DL for the past month, so I dropped Ingram for Cameron Jordan. I thought about Hightower, but I wasn't sure that he'd do any better than the guys on my bench.

    if you know regex, take a quick qual test
    actual hit looks like it's going to be a race against the timer
    just to do the task, never mind the demo and followup questions.

    I like regex, but I remember the saying:
    you have a problem
    that looks like a job for regular expressions.
    now you have two problems

    Just a quick question for all of you turkers that have experience with TM: What do you all do to minimize page refresh errors when you have multiple requesters being watched? I have about 4 running at the moment that vary from 60 to 120 seconds and run into refresh errors constantly. Thanks in advance for any tips!

    Seeing Nikki speak is rare. Seeing her cuss is even more rare. Am I dreaming?

    Took the day off from here and went to Pittsburgh to source for my online sales.

    Didn't find much sadly, but I did find a few books that will sell fast and for a lot. Like .25 for a book that sells for $107. That's the kind of turn around I like.

    But, I also like the really weird stuff. Like these film strips I found tucked away in an old projector. They are all really weird stuff from 1946 and about how vegetarians are better and have more energy. All the diseases of the world and how to cure them. Some really crackpot stuff. Then, You have films about how smoking and drinking are EVIL!

    I wish I would have bought the projector too, but oh well. This will have to do. Weird thing is, I cant find any info on the "studio" or the copyright holder. Just a copyright listing on google and that is it. Nothing else. And usually google doesn't fail me.

    Awww, Don't be so hard on yourself. I just find it interesting to see how things have changed over time. And a lot of these films are based in a type of medical field so that interested me too.


    Thanks!

    Found more info on them, thanks to the power of Reddit. Turns out, They are a film series used as part of a ministry program and was featured in "The Ministry" Magazine.

    I have all 8 rolls and it is really amazing to see them all come together with the backstory. It's reasons like these that I thrift hunt and dig through stuff people would turn away from.

    Passed the qual test. I think this would just piss me off when I run out of time though.

    That would be funny, but it is actually a nutrition ministry program. (Yeah, I know right?)

    Here is a brief outline:

    The greatest interest is shown on the night we present the film, "Why I Am a Vegetarian." The eight topics are:

    I. Our First Line of Defense. (Importance of healthful living.)

    2. Nature's Ten Commandments to Better Health. (Co-operation with the laws of health.)

    3. Disease, Its Cause and Cure. (Drugs vs. natural remedies.)

    (After this talk a short course in home nursing and hydrotherapy should be given by an experi*enced nurse, if available. Strong support should be given by the evangelist in announcing the course.)

    4. Alcohol, the Enemy of Man.

    5. Tobacco, the Saboteur.

    6. Health Destroyers. (Coffee, tea, condiments, pork.)

    7. You Are What You Eat. (Balanced diet, natural foods.)

    8. Why I Am a Vegetarian. (Advantages of vegetarian diet.)

    (After this talk a short course in cooking should be given by an experienced dietitian, if available. This can be given in the meeting hall or in the homes of the people.)
