I wish I knew why there is now a quota on likes.


So Brock can charge for overages?

Slowest game ever? 

Fischer vs Spassky was pretty hard to sit through as well.

Willi, were you trying to see where your quota is?

Yes, its somewhere around 50 I think.

 

Why is there a quota at all?

Well, there's that.

It got mentioned in the 'New Twins Daily' thread and it seemed from Brock's response that the likes limit was intentional. I would guess there is a reason for that but you'll have to ask him.

But virtually no time at all on the cosmic calendar.

Honestly... It was the longest Short Debut ever. Guinness has been notified.

Vodka works too...

I'm guessing each like triggers more database transactions than you might expect.

Yeah, I'm sure there's a technical reason for it, but since I'm not a tech head I couldn't even attempt a guess

Vargas looked pretty fast running to first.

 

Willingham needs to lay off the high fastballs.

 

I need to start thinking about dinner.
