@wiski @lister Downtown TO. Condos. Real fibre straight into your unit not that Bell Fibe shit. No caps. No traffic shaping. No bullshit. Symmetrical upload/download. I can get up to 500/500 Mbps if I wanted. 100Mbps will do for now. :-p I've waited a long time for this.
No I don't work for them but I've tried to get hired. No dice so far.
If you're living in a downtown TO condo get your board members to talk to them. Ditch Bell and Rogers!
2 months ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
After a year with only OTA TV watching HNIC games and listening on radio, I'm back with fibre TV via Beanfield! I intend though to be productive during games making homebrew. That way I'll have some good and cheap beer to cry in should this season follow the last bunch.
Still, all things hopeful! 82-0!
@Loric76 Hottest place I've been is southern Taiwan in July. Temperatures are 30-35C but with humidity it easily feels like 45-50C. From about April through to November it very rarely cools down unless it rains and that's a brief respite or if you go up into the mountains. In the evenings the temperature falls 2-4C but the humidity usually remains. Stepping outside a wave of heat hits you and sweat starts in mere minutes. I don't mind it during the day but when trying to sleep A/C is necessary requirement.
When they put out some warnings about the temperature here in Toronto last week and this week I said "Oh finally!" then "Meh" when I went outside.

@Mind Bomb @lister I see you've started drinking already. That's two words.
I'll be up at Lake Simcoe this weekend with friends. No strip bar unfortunately.

@Mind Bomb @lister Got the beers and BBQs covered. No babe until next weekend when she's finally back.
@Mind Bomb And the long weekend!
If you like good beer there are a few places in Peterborough that serve the stuff: http://www.ratebeer.com/places/city/peterborough/59/0/
@MaxwellHowe Yes, that's because Stamkos will be with the Leafs. :-p

@Joe_17 Could be worse... It could be winter. :-p
@dlb Mad @lister Meh, such a stupid exercise for "team building." Even worse when businesses do it.
@vinoa @lister @MaxwellHowe It has certainly shown on the ice hasn't it?
@MaxwellHowe I roll my eyes at stuff like that. What really is the point of that? And do you seriously think whatever that point is, is achieved?
@rickpearce76 I've always thought a structure like that was wise for later on getting a draft pick or two from teams that need to get to the floor but not actually pay the floor.

4 months, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs’ Tim Gleason to be bought out
@B_Leaf @ShotgunCharlie @Jordan29 More like a sack of potatoes.
@B_Leaf Seems to me with that money you should have bought a country instead..
@leafmealone @lister @wiski For Bergevin?
@wiski Or perhaps chalk? Even weirder.
@wiski Chocolate? Weird but whatever gets you through the day.
@Jordan29 @Cloud09 So is an asteroid slamming into the Earth but I'd rather it not happen.
@Loric76 Grass is greener...
@Cloud09 @Jordan29 NO!
@ShotgunCharlie @lister @Axle_Goalie @Reether Should be a main page thing too. It stays put for the entire day regardless if 15 other articles are posted.
@Axle_Goalie @ShotgunCharlie @Reether Every day they should do a clearly labelled with the day's date general thread.
@RandomScrub @4evrblue @lister I was talking about hockey off-topic comments. For example a Gleason comment in one of the previous threads. Does it simply get deleted or get moved to here?
Do off-topic comments simply get deleted or moved to where appropriate?

@DWCMLHS @MaxwellHowe That just means it's time to gobble up 1st round picks... :-p
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Sticking by the wrong guy
I am going to take these events as:
1) the head coach candidate they want isn't available (yet)
2) the assistant coaches were sacrificial lambs
3) the Leafs have lots of money and no cap on staff so Carlyle gets added years for the $$$
4) 2014-2015 is probably going to be similar to 2013-2014 (on the playoff bubble)
5) even if I get TV back this summer I'll be watching games sparingly
6) Carlyle will be gone after next season
7) a new head coach will be hired
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Press Conference: Randy Carlyle staying, extended 2 years
@CanuckUKinToronto Haven't been on the last little while (busy!) so I don't know if this has been thrashed out yet but I read some whispers about Babcock possibly becoming available after his contract is done after next season. Would you be willing to go with Carlyle for one more season if you knew unofficially that Babcock was waiting in the wings?
Of course there'd be player changes as well but I was curious about the Babcock thing.

@ingy56 @lister@wendelsfist A nice looking chick is a nice looking chick. Just stand there, don't do anything. *Dr Evil shushes*
@ingy56 @lister I was initially wondering if the guy was starting to have a seizure or something.
@ingy56 @lister@wendelsfist Enh. I suppose. I could still live without it.
@ingy56 Same guy? (Not watching.)
@ingy56 I was wondering if the guy was part of some prison work program or something. Like those guys who pick up trash on the side of the road. One of the worst unintentional anthem singing attempts I've ever witnessed.
@ingy56 @wendelsfist None should be. If fact none should be done.
@wiski @maple1967leafs I would have preferred a spring, summer or fall of rain over that damn cold! Sure it would be depressing as hell but at least I'd be able to feel my toes.
@Mcost61 Oh and the Canucks too.
@maple1967leafs @lister@wiski Probably been a TV expert too long. Killed too many brain cells.
@Mcost61 No. I hate the smell of the stuff. Gross.
