Everyone seems so nice to each other on the old site these days.

I'm in for $5.

I joined in 2009. I think the only social media account I had then was MySpace.

How did you get the job without knowing anything about it?

You know Oracle and Linux scro?

Hell yeah bro.

Sick bro you're hired.

I don't, but my partner has used a few smart watches and settled on Apple. I can pass some questions on if you'd like

Almost got the Apple watch, but I settled on the Fitbit Charge 4. The idea of having a cellular Apple watch and not needing to bring your phone everywhere is p dope, but T-mobile charges $10 a month to add it to your regular plan. Without a cellular plan, the Apple Watch just seems very redundant.

I don't think she really uses it for phone calls - it would take a special kind of stupid to try using a watch as a main driver.

I have a friend who does this. He uses Apple pay, maps and texting mostly and just keeps his driver's license in his pocket. Seems pretty efficient.

Considering getting one. I already know I'd use: Spotify, answering texts, calls, calc, heartbeat thing, calories burned, sleep tracking, weather/time, navigation, NFC pay. Basically I want to test using only the smartwatch and not needing to bring my phone everywhere.

It's going to take diamond hands for me to not buy the Scorpius. Also did those dicksuckers take small outpost colonization off the roadmap?

I've been on a nu-80/90s kick recently.

Dear Tim Cook,

I want a 32inch iMac to exist. Don't nerf its USB 3 connections or its internet connections. I know you are going to try to ram your forearm up my arse until I choke on your knuckles, but I want 512Gb hard drive minimum and I don't want to pay hundreds £s more to get it. 8gb RAM will probably do. ... could you do a base model with touch ID and 1GB ethernet for £1700?  :'(

Thanks

Loyal Microsoft sheep wishing to move flocks.

Why does it have to be an imac? Why can't you just get a Mac Mini and use whatever monitor you want.

Soooo ... if you can't access it ... why did you suggest it as a solution?   ???

The wait times vary by location. And even if you can't access it now, it may be worthwhile to get on the waitlist for later.

Stadia sucks. If you want to go the streaming route, try Shadow instead. You get access to a full PC in the cloud instead of just a game library.
Oh, is that a thing? Fuck. I think my next PC is going to be an M1 iMac then. There is just no reason not to now.  :(

Yeah, it's very smooth, almost seamless, if you live close-ish to one of their servers and if your computer has a good wireless card. But it looks like there's a super long waitlist, at least where I live. I wouldn't be able to access the service until December here. When I first heard about it I signed up for a month and was able to access it within a day. It has exploded with demand over the last year or so. It looks like the waitlist for the UK is full until 2022.

Your best bet is an Xbox Series S for $300.

I downloaded a program called Wipr that blocks ads in Safari. I wish Apple wasn't so poopy and let you use regular addons like ublock, but this will have to do. The current version of Chrome uses too much battery power and isn't as responsive as Safari.

There's also the fact that a lot of these third world countries have much higher rates of rape than Western/Northern European countries. One can infer that a high rape rate population moving into a low rape rate population will increase the rape rate there. Some cultures aren't as good as others.

I thought Sweden was a model country for quality of life. I wonder what’s going on over there. Do you think a lot of white Swedish men just can’t get any tang, or is something more sinister being hidden from us? 🤔

What's your current network setup? Is it a combo modem/router/wifi access point kind of device, like ISPs will give out? Or multiple devices, like a modem and then a wifi router? Which of those devices have Ethernet ports to connect downstream devices, even if they are already taken?

I have no need for the archival drives to be connected 24/7. I'd actually prefer that they weren't.

The most reliable HDD you can get is multiple redundant hard drives. I have a similar requirement for offline backup storage, and I have three Seagate Archive 8 TB drives and a disk cloner. Every so often, I clone the master disk to the others for redundancy (I also rotate which one is the "master" to spread the wear).

With this setup, you can go all in on data density and not worry too much about reliability, because it doesn't matter if one of them fails.

I'll most likely do this. Thanks dawgs.

I have quite a lot of data that I need to store and never lose, so I wanted to ask you computer peeps what kind of hard drive to use. I plan on using a 3-tier backup system, or at least that's I'm calling it. I store all of my immediately necessary data on one of these. I'm using a larger 4TB WD Blue HDD for longer term storage that is connected to my PC. But, I'd also like a very reliable HDD that I can store everything on, make periodic backups to, and mostly leave it unplugged as a sort of cold storage option. I'd like to avoid an NAS setup because that would mean upgrading the network in my house with a switch and I don't want to go to the trouble. I looked up some cloud storage plans, but I'd be spending $30 a month or more ad infinitum, so I'd like to avoid that too. Basically, I'm just looking for the most reliable HDD you can get.
