Is there any way to prevent changing to the YouTube player? I keep getting switched to it and I much prefer the GB player (I seem to be the only one who never has trouble with it). I can switch back by firing up a premium video and then changing options and switching them back to my real preferences but that only seems to be sticky for a week or two.

Oh, weird. When scrubbing the jog bar only the thumbnail shows.

Don't see an option to turn off autoplay of next episode, that's important to have. Also if autoplay is turned on it would be really nice if the next video plays in the same way that the previous one was playing (embiggened, full screen, what have you).

When I login it drops me back to the home page rather than the page I was on when I hit login.

Also, there isn't a link to the game wiki page from a video page (a way that I use on the current site to check for any other videos related to that game that I may have missed). That would be how I'd go from the RDR2 quick look to Arthur Morgan, Bane of the West video... or I would, but the only things tied to the RDR2 page right now are podcast episodes... So that's a problem too.

It must be just me... no one else has mentioned it feeling weird that Oldest to Newest feels backwards on the carousel... I feel like the newest video should be to the left getting older as you go right... but if newest on the right moving older to the left is the way all the cool kids do it nowadays I can adapt.

Okay, after some messing about I'm back to the GB video player... It's not helpful to have YouTube videos autoplay and then when paused not have the overlay come up....

Also, I run CTRL+ssed a couple of times (bad eyes, bigger text better) and I'm having some trouble mousing down onto drop down menus (specifically the options under the user icon)... if I set it back to default zoom it works fine, but when zoomed it is very inconsistent.

Echo the finding the water cutoff - there is also usually one near where the water enters the house as well as the cutoff at the street. While you're at it, find the gas cutoff (if you have gas service) as well.

One of the most useful things I made was a map of all the electrical outlets, fixtures, hardwired things in the house and what fuse/breaker they are associated with becuase, at some point of another, someone is going to plug the toaster oven and microwave into the same circuit and try to run them both at once...

Brick (or other similar materials) have a far different heating/cooling cycle than wooden houses. Ambient external temperatures will affect the inside temp between 4 and 6 hours later for brick vs. wood.

Scrapple is better, but Spam'll do in a pinch.

55. Played Pong during those early heady days (never played any of the games that people programmed on oscilloscopes, but...), before then we only had the hoop and stick to entertain us.

Get off my lawn.

...damn kids...
