Mine has been so problem-free that it's reached the much-coveted status of damn-I-have-forgotten-everything-I-knew-about-that-piece-of-gear.

I was supposed to update it's firmware due to vulnerability but keep putting it off.

Where's NoScript for Firefox 57 "Quantum"?
2017-11-14: We're working hard to make NoScript for Quantum available to you as soon as possible, definitely by the end of this week.

Please be patient: if you feel naked while you're waiting for the "brand new" NoScript, you can still use the "regular" NoScript 5.x (and all the other extensions of yours) on Firefox 52 ESR, which will receive security updates until June 2018. See you soon!

There Is No Secret Inventory Of Cars For Sale Online

Quote
You scour for hours on every car listing site you can for your dream car that has the perfect combo of options for the right price. Too frequently, what you seek cannot be found, even if you hope against hope that in some secret corner of the internet that car is for sale. I’m here to tell you, that place doesn’t exist.

Now I don't feel like rolling my own search was unwarranted.

Viewership fell 18 percent year over year in Week 10, with lower ratings in all six game-time windows, according to JPMorgan.

That puts the NFL's season-to-date audience decline at roughly 7 percent.

While that compares well with the NFL's 12 percent decline at this point in 2016, much last year's decline was written off as a one-time effect from the presidential election.

Somewhere in here or the earlier Core, there's a post of NC hunting licenses declining at a 7% annual rate.  Within 5 years, the difference was noticeable to anyone even vaguely interested. Within 10 years the hunters are all but gone.
