Who have I got to fuck to mount this NTFS read write? Is that how it works? Maybe that's it. I have to sleep my way to read write.

As if designed to create confusion, directly north across the river from Portland OR, is a city named Vancouver WA. (As you know, directly north across another river from Seattle WA is Vancouver BC.)

Wait, genres have an integer code! Why didn't anyone tell me there was a lookup table for genres? This could help my genre typos a lot (or make the problem worse than ever).

Package names sound like planets sometimes. I just said to myself "WTF is Gambas 3?"

BTW, fair warning, the answer to that is a little nauseating.

"I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot 150,000 of my base voters and I wouldn't lose any voters [left alive], okay?"

2K is the perfect resolution for a 24" monitor. 4K is perfect for 27"-32". More importantly, all monitors come with fancy hiDPI scaling nowadays--IT'S CALLED CHANGING YOUR RESOLUTION TO MATCH WHAT YOU CAN READ. If you have a 4k 24" monitor and can't see sheit, run it at 2K, brainiacs. Bonus: your GPU and CPU work less, they stay cooler, they save electricity, they live longer, & the freed memory improves performance...I can't believe sw scaling is a thing.

"165 degrees Fahrenheit." Answer to "Okay Google, at what temperature is your CPU safely cooked?"

HAL was the ship. All he had to do to keep Dave from boarding him was do a minor detour burn--and correct course when Dave was long gone. I guess he weighed the risk of using fuel vs the chance of Dave succeeding.

See the blobby cloud with the stringy tendrils? I don't recall seeing these recently but I remember them in the past. I'm guessing it's cloud from a coal burner.

Makes you feel old when your old PC speakers have static on one side unless you turn them way up, and when your trusty old monitors' inverters flake out, caps bulging.

While I wasn't looking, things developed to the point that audio is handled automagically over HDMI & DisplayPort, and monitors work perfectly and switch between inputs perfectly with it. I'm kind of wondering if/when PC's display chipsets will go beyond just piping the audio to have a low bandwidth USB function, and monitors' USB hubs will work thru their inputs and switch between them.

Does anyone know of a low Watt motherboard WITH some pcie slots and WITH 4 satas? Also not insanely expensive would be cool.

It's like they had a deal on towers and also 20W motherboards with no expansion and made an abomination of the two.

Show thread It's a giant tower. With a 15W TDP cpu. I was excited for it as a server...but it has only 2 SATA ports and no slots at all. It's mostly air and can only ever be just...air.

TSLA during the pandemic is like mammals after an asteroid impact.

I'm just glad I upgraded all my desktops (with the exception of a token 2008 iMac) to 8GB before the came out with an 8GB option.
