What was this Phantom Menace parody (done as MUD/MMO chat logs)?

I'm looking for a star wars parody in the form of text-logs from a mud / mmo. This initially covered Phantom Menace (which I believe it may have been a response to) but may have eventually covered the newer movies + a new hope. [more inside]

Successful application of Scrum?

I may be one of the few people who enjoy bid management and fundraising. I am good at documentation management, procurement, recruitment, and development. However, I am looking for ways to be a better manager of campaigns and people where we may only have a few weeks to a month turnaround as well as managing the larger scopes these programs fall under which can last multiple years. Would Agile/Kanban/Scrum master training would be a good way to get these skills? Is there a way to understand discipline differences better for their applications?

Country Video

I'm looking for an old country video, from the 80s probably. The main setting of the video is in a restaurant and the singer is on a date. There are plastic ketchup and mustard bottles on the table, and I think a checkered table cloth. Other scenes from the video include classic US Southern trees and covered bridges. I don't know who sings the song but the music is 80s country lite, along the lines of this Ronnie Milsap song. Halp? [more inside]

Recommendations for Jeet Kune Do training in Portland OR?

I'm interested in taking Jeet Kune Do classes and would love to get recommendations in Portland, preferably at a place that won't try to rope me into long-term contracts because my schedule is usually random/busy. Also, I'm not married to JKD and open to other styles as well. Thanks!

Audible.com notifications when my wish list books get added?

I prefer reading via audiobook. When I find a book I want to read that's not on Audible.com, I add it to my Amazon wish list. Sometimes, months later, I will do a search and discover that the recording has been added to Audible. Is there a way to get notifications when the audio recording is made available for a book on my Amazon wish list?

Recommend an LTO-7 drive for use on CentOS 7

I need to create LTFS LTO-6 tapes on a CentOS 7 system. As the newest LTO drive I have is a (non-LTFS) LTO-5 drive (I've been using tar and such), I figure I'll buy an LTO-7 drive, since they can write LTO-6 tapes, and I'll be more future proofed. Which model to get, considering not just the hardware, but also the corresponding LTFS Linux implementation? [more inside]

Find this late '90s or early '00s Subaru "frozen in time" commercial

As a kid in the late '90s or early '00s, I remember seeing a Subaru commercial where a power line or telephone pole sparks and falls, and a Subaru narrowly avoids hitting the falling pole. The scene freezes much like in the Discover "Freeze It" commercial, and a narrator talks about Subaru's all-wheel-drive. I vividly remember him grabbing a piece of popcorn that the children in the back seat are eating and saying, "mmm...tasty" or something. The scene un-freezes and the car drives off. Can anyone find this commercial?

Can someone recommend a good solution for ModX migration to Wordpress

Hi all, I've inherited a fairly horrible done site full kinks and NO ONE likes ModX, it's really a horrible CMS and not user friendly unless you got developer chops. That said, how easy are ModX to Wordpress migrations? I saw some cost around $1500 but unsure who is really proven in this space. Thanks

How do I feed myself motivational quotes?

Is there any iOS equivalent to the fortune app? I've got a list of quotes I really like. I'd like to be fed one a day, ideally using the notifications feature of my iPhone, but I'm up for email as well. Do I need to roll my own for this, or is there an existing solution out there?

Bumper stickers with a single "M"

I've started seeing these round "M" bumper stickers around my part of town a lot, usually black, but today's was blue. I haven't been able to get close enough to read the url, and Google image search hasn't helped, unless people are super-into advertising the Paris Metro. I realize it could be anything, and could be regional, but does anyone know what they represent?

A window to another world? XBox one to iMac Skype chat - will it work?

I'm trying to set up a system so that I can hang out with a family member from my iMac and their living room TV. I'm open to any system, but it seems like the easiest thing might be to get them an Xbox One + Kinect and do the chat via Skype. Will that work? Is there another way that would be easier/better?
