"Smart" Parking Meters Considered Dumb

tlayne Re:There must be a better way (863 comments)

I'm in Portland and I for one welcome our new parking overlords. Keeping $3 worth of quarters for on hand for a parking meter is a hassle. Plus, if you have several stops to make you can pay the meter at the first one, and then just park and go at the next stop because the payment transfers to other spaces.

Bobby Fischer Is Dead At 64

tlayne Re:Greatest player of all time (377 comments)

Yeah. Too bad that never happened, though. He played two matches after 1972 and neither was against a top player. Spassky had long since retired and Polgar may be a grandmaster, but has never been a serious world champion threat.
