I conceded that I could have had bad luck with the rain, but it rained 6 straight nights when I was there last time and at least once on every trip I have ever taken.

Also this was a few years back, so they may have changed since then. What you say could definitely be the case now.

edit: I'm sure the rice and beans are all prepared identical as of a few months ago.
It looks like Chipotle changed to that in 2010.

My only other real gripe with Qdoba is that their pico de gallo is terrible. Chipotle's pico de gallo crushes it.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

DC Metro is open till 3 am on weekends now. Would have lol'ed hard at DC transport being better than NYC until uber.com blew up. Pretty boss, tap a button on your phone and car will be wherever you are in a few minutes usually and def within 10, and can see exactly where on map they are. They directly bill your credit card electronically, so just hop in and out of car.

Seems to average only about $2 more than a standard cab, and I'm pretty sure a standard cab charges a $2 fee anyway if you have to call them.

Apparently have it in NYC but don't know how it is there, and less needed anyway because pretty simple to hail a cab wherever, imo.

Qdoba uses really big chunks of tomato (which I hate in pico de gallo) and it's really bland.

I agree, it's so close to Boston that you'd never expect that.

Despite having a ton of positives there are just as many negatives to NYC that make it inferior to other major cities like DC, Chicago, LA, Atlanta, Boston, and Miami (though I have only spent a few days in each of the last two cities so those opinions aren't as reliable).

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I did forget the cost of a car and insurance as it is so ingrained in me that everyone over 16 pays for these. Even my friends that grew up in NYC suburbs had cars.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

lol at DC and Atlanta ever having any argument whatsoever over being better than NYC that doesn't begin and end with the weather. And that's not that good of an argument for DC.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Posted this in the computer forum, but it looks like it's a ghost town. Any non ****** could probably figure this out, but apparently I cannot....



I just had an old Dell laptop cleaned out. I only have Lock/BCP/PokerTracker4 downloaded on it.

When I click on either of the poker sites, the lobby takes up almost the whole 17' screen. When I click on tables they are stretched out and take up a ton of room.

I figured id just go and adjust the screen resolution and it would fix it. When I try to do this though, it only lets me use the highest 1024x768 or the lowest 800x600. It doesn't let me drag the icon up and down.

Any advice or help would be appreciated, thanks.

You should probably PM H.3.n,r.y;1.7 but then you'd run the risk of actually hanging out with him

Greear,

First thing I'd do is make sure you have the proper driver for your video card.
Dell Driver Search.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Chipotle definitely better than Qdoba, however I am still amazed people go to these places when burritos are so popular and their are seemingly taqueria's all over the place. The vary in quality, but the better ones are usually so much better than Chipotle/Qdoba imo.
