FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    Thanks for the help on Chrome.

    I bought an Acer R13 Touchscreen 2-in-1 Chromebook. I wanted to go to a store to buy it and tried Best Buy. I've never had a good buying experience with them and the trend continued....... a stock check revealed there was not a single unit available in the SE.

    I ordered on line from Costco; it was $389.

    Of all the "Book" type laptops (or tablets - this one is kinda in between), it has the largest display. It also has a standard USB port. Samsung, Lenovo offering similar products for about $100 to $120 more have all gone to the USB-C ports. Nothing works on these unless you buy the adapter for about $30. The Acer will run a mouse off Blue Tooth (I hate the pad) and a External USB DVD/CD unit off the standard USB port.

      Someone posted that the IU/M game had the highest number of viewers yesterday of all the televised games. That's nice. People need to stop watching CFB so I can stream!!!!

      Just wondering if others are having a similar experience with all the regional and major sports broadcasters who offer live streamed CFB games (that would be BTN, ABC/ESPN, Fox and CBS) that I am routinely experiencing.

      On Saturday, noon time, I was watching the M/IU game via my OTA signal for ABC. Just for kicks I went to BTN, WatchESPN and Fox, FSGO Video on the web. Games of interest were FSU/Duke (Watch ESPN), Rutgers/Illinois (BTN) and Kansas/Iowa State (FSGO Video).Not that I had a great deal of interest in the games themselves, I just wanted to see how good these streamed products were.

      The BTN and WatchESPN constantly buffered. FSGO Video streamed flawlessly. I don't have a network, router or internet problem. Gone through that when I first started doing this.

      Later I wanted to stream MSU/Minnesota (BTN), osu/neb (FSGO Video) and had the same problem. The osu/neb game on FSGO Video - the same server I had no problems with for Kansas/Iowa State - was unwatchable due to buffering.

      To me, this is clearly a service provider server issue - they get overloaded. WTF. With all the advertised hype about TV anywhere from these guys, investment in delivering a decent product isn't there. Of course, that's not surprising but it's frustrating. I just want to confirm that I'm not alone.
