WannaBe: "Funny" story about me and X'mas tunes... (I do not like them, "trauma-tized as a teenager", story below) Growing up, family always had Bing or Andy Williams X'mas tunes on cassette tape, we'd put them on for an hour or so, never thought anything of them. Once I got to high school, ...

WannaBe: I heard that Blake Sheldon have just been named Sexiest Man Alive. How come no one ever gets named Sexiest Man (or Woman) Dead? Enquiring minds want to know.

  NakoSonorense: Hey, <WannaBe>!

Excited about the World Series? A friend of mine asked if I wanted to go and I said yes, without a second thought. I figured the cheap tickets would be no more than $200. A bit pricey, but reasonable considering it's the WS and it's been 29 years.

Needless to say, StubHub dropped a bucket of iced water on my head.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: If you get one for $200, I'll buy it from you for $400. =))

  WannaBe: Star Trek Discovery, A+, great episode.

Oh, the Simpsons Halloween special isn't bad, either.

  WannaBe: Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) is getting hammered, down 15%! Advanced Micro Device (AMD) is down 10%!

All indexes are down, but less than 1%, beginning of the end of the bull market?

  WannaBe: iOS 11.0.3 having problems (mostly battery life) apps crashing (I'll blame this on the developers).

iOS 11.1 is scheduled to be released in a week or two. I expect iOS 11.1.1 to be released by early December to fix the issue(s) in iOS 11.1

  WannaBe: Market's down, good news for my covered calls that I've sold, also moved majority of money to bond fund a week ago.

Crashes happen in Sept/Oct,

  technical draw: World Series? Without the Yankees it's just two Minor league teams playing. I think I'll just watch the Phoenix Pharoahs.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Can anyone tell me who lost the World Series?

(Just some gallows humor

hi, Wannabe. I hope all is well with

Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: <technical draw:

It's 2017, both teams get participation trophies.

  WannaBe: Both Star Trek Discovery and The Orville have been picked up for season 2, by CBS and FOX respectively.

Good Gnus for geeks and nerds everywhere!

  WannaBe: <Oct-30-2017 iOS 11.1 is scheduled to be released in a week or two. I expect iOS 11.1.1 to be released by early December to fix the issue(s) in iOS 11.1>

My prediction was off by a few weeks, iOS 11.1.1 is now available for download.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: People have reported iPhone X will sometimes stop responding to screen touch if a sudden change in temperature:

Apple pledge a fix is coming, but it's <NOT> in the 11.1.1 fix (my previous post).

I can understand this, in Cupertino, CA (Apple's new spaceship campus and HQ) temperature is 75-78 degrees, year round. So it's understandable that Apple would not know how/what sudden change in temperature would affect their product.

Maybe Apple can consider having a second HQ in Fargo, ND. $1K Phone, pfffff!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I don't understand how this is "news"

Mike Dash already wrote a book on this, published in 2002

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: iOS 11.1.2 have been released to fix the temperature drop and a couple of other issues:

9/19 iOS 11 officially released
9/26 11.0.1 released
10/3 11.0.2 released
10/11 11.0.3 released
10/31 11.1 released
