Re: FML general thread [8]

Shitty day today. Literally. Cool story my ass. :facepalm: * Without warning the dog came up the dinner table and ate the lunch leftovers, just as I was busy washing the dishes. Fuck this, I thought the dog was supposed to be in the bedroom. * Friend called, said he was going to buy a laptop that wa...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Oh, wow. Hella way to sell an operating system that not everyone likes. I don't like Win10 because it gimps VRAM for older games to 4gb, asides from privacy concerns and forced updates. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/03/microsoft-is-getting-ready-to-block-windows-updates-for-old...

Trying to watch Stranger Things because younger acquaintances were talking about it and its association with Eggos.

Re: FML general thread [8]

Pretty much everyone done with their teens is a twenty-something mind in a whatever age body. The only difference is the number of responsibilities you have, how your current social circle pressures you to behave, and how much you have to lose if you rebel against either of those. Nobody ever reall...

Re: FML general thread [8]

A smelly room is a room expressing failure in life, unable to go another step, waiting for something to happen, fiddling thumbs out of boredom, bitterness and disinterest. A room without windows, only a door, the air is hot and uncomfortable, and the only light is a solitary light bulb, as if denied...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Is anyone else watching The Young Pope? I find it rather marvelous. Marathoned it out of curiosity. First few episodes was like listening to Kid Rock and Eminem at full volume. Then it was... Like mind-blowing! One may not like him but some of his statements hammer home. Lenny would be forever call...

Re: Computer Stupidities

It just made better sense to wait and see rather than blindly throw money at something which may make things worse. If I was lucky to buy an RX470 after several years with an HD7750, unimpressed with the R7s and R9s, I also thought it wise enough that I held onto the Athlon II since 2012 (briefly I ...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Too easy to say they're on top because they're also on recommendations by any Tom, Dick and Harry for years , even though some people will have to fork over more money for the GPU just to show they have more balls. Sometimes I had to laugh at those who are judging anything on the basis of how much f...

Re: Computer Stupidities

It's been a few days Ryzen came out and most people dissed on it just because it's a few figures short of Intel's i7-7700K. For the price of that Pagani Zonda processor -- was it a thousand Cs? -- I could damn well buy a decent Ryzen processor plus a new video card, memory, and maybe a heatsink. :lo...

Re: Computer Stupidities

Is it just me, or have consumer motherboards been really dumbed down the last couple of years? My most recent PC dates from 2004, but looking at modern motherboard manuals makes me think of one of those books I got when I was, like, 8 or 9. Manuals with very little text, missing explanations (that ...

Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

Finally got the cash payment from a client with 10 computer units I fixed, but that will also be the final payment I'll get from her because the last job she sent an underling to deal with me, then delayed payment because she was fucking busy or something, and I hate that. Now figuring out whether I...

Re: Celebrity RIP Thread

I wake up and I cannot bear reading the morning news. Considering how much the epic touches much of childhood, it's like losing a closest aunt and everything else one anticipates for is lost forever, to be only a memory on the screen, somewhat resuscitated only with the application of CGI and voice ...
