Just going by IP, they are not close.

I will be getting a new tool to identify alts that is separate from checking IPs. Had it on the old board and it let us identify some that used VPNs to hide.

But it's not the case here.

It isn't hard to hide now and if you are using Safari it will be REALLY easy to hide alts.

Now, if you were to collect MAC (not Apple Macs) addresses, that would be different. But then you are getting into a more involved sign up process that may keep some from joining...

There are some other tricks that I understandably won't go into detail on.

But in this case, the IPs are very identifiable by ISP along with location in the country. And they are not IPs that would be used with a VPN or Tor.

I sure hope I didn't come off as a know it all.... again.

Sorry if I did.
No, I knew I should change it at least once a year if it isn't driven 3k miles in that year. Chances are it will get driven more. In fact, I drove it to work Saturday and tonight, probably tomorrow. That is 100 miles alone just to work in three days. I put it off too long though, I keep thinking my procrastinators anonymous meeting would affect it, but it keeps getting delayed for some reaon.

Ice cream truck came through for final round of the year. Elizabeth made them some Halloween decorations and we gave them $40 to eat out on from us.

Thermostat set at 70, all I heard for the last hour “it’s cold” “my feet and legs are cold” “I wasn’t prepared for this” all from my wife. Here I’m comfortable. I could stand it to be 2-3 degrees cooler in the house but that will never happen. I sleep with fans on and a window partially open.

That was the same for me until the wife entered a different "stage". Now she is hot all the time. :LOL:

Came across this yesterday. Been thinking about it. I can't tell if I am stupid or not. You can have your own opinion.

I encourage us all to look inward.
No attempt to offend, An attempt to think and reflect.
That is a fantastic video and contribution. Thank you for posting it. I sent it to our family chat and asked my now young adult kids to watch it.

And to answer your question, from what I can see here on the board you're not stupid. :thumb:

But, you knew that already.

I have three colleges I want to get to a home football game at least once in my life time. Two I can get to many times though if I want.

A. Bama, enough said as it is bama. I have already been to one of their basketball games. After seeing their entrance lighting, it will have ot be a night game.

B. Purdue, being only a few hours away, this is entirely possible.

C. Notre Dame, again, being in the same state, entirely possible.

I have personally never been to a big college football game but the atmosphere alone seems electric.

Dude.... I love this post.

Our friends in New England will never understand what a Saturday on a B1G campus is all about. I have been to Purdue and ND for games (as a visitor) and many at Michigan State. A home tailgate with your friends is THE BEST. We will be in East Lansing next Saturday for the showdown with the that school in Ann Arbor. The campus will be electric.

I have done the pro tailgate in Foxborough, Detroit and Chicago but nothing beats a college game day when you are THERE. Will have 150K people on campus for the game next weekend. Go Green!
