      CaptainMike - when I worked for a law firm I would make it a point to talk with the court reporters I encountered for depositions or in court. They were always willing to share the most funny and interesting stories about lawyers, judges, witnesses and juries. All anonymous and not throwing anyone under the bus, but very entertaining. Fascinating job IMO.

      Ah, smart man. It's wise to get on the judge's good side, but wiser still to get on the good side of the court reporters and clerks.

      I have a good friend, a 28 year veteran of our state police, a more straight forward, honest, and respectable man than you will ever find, and he and his family will tell you their house is haunted too. While I don’t believe in such things, I do believe him, and would never think him crazy either.

        Bogy on-premise has lost out to 'the cloud', for now. Because, 'other people's equipment' is a lot more accurate way to put it.

        JGo37 yeah, he's now working with Azure, or was. They keep moving him around, which he likes, but I sometimes lose track of exactly what he's doing now. He literally "wrote the book" on Azure. If you want to be certified in Azure you can buy his book, work through each chapter on your lunch hour, and be certified at the end.

        Bogy. Very interesting. One of my sons is in management at Microsoft. He loves working for them. I think the only downside is all the traveling he does.

          I'm a jack of all trades and consultant. I started out as an industrial electrician which morphed into a computer tech and that morphed into AV production work. These days I still do a lot of computer related work, mostly OS deployments for AV rental companies, video editing for AV companies and some assessments on potential startups.

                    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                    Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                    Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

Char-Broil's TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                    NK-22-Ck Grill

                    Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                    GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                    GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

                    kareubequ bbq smoker

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
