Re: FML general thread [8]

Yay, psycho-neighbour seems to be going into real psycho mode now :rolleyes: . After getting pissed off at someone helping him put a piece of furniture in his flat and then at a (fairly quiet) party last evening and spending the whole evening slamming doors and flushing toilets, this morning doing m...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Have you tried to talk with any of your other neighbors about it, see what they think should be done? He's already on a watch list, and has already had a chat with the representative of the apartment owners' union after having the brilliant :rolleyes: idea of drilling in the wall at half past eleve...

Re: FML general thread [8]

I am pretty sure behaviour like this can be reported to the police. At least here in Germany, you can get into serious trouble if you do ejust one of those things even on a semi-regular basis Yeah, it's pretty much the same in here, but the problem is that the guy seems to know exactly how far he c...

Re: Dealing with being thirty

I also want to ask about the stigma of being thirty, our society praises youth and vitality but thirty is close to middle age and thirty seems almost frowned upon. How do you deal with that stigma? Or is it a thing? Growing old is inevitable as you not be able to certain things when you are younger...

Re: EvaGeeks Forum Rules & Regulations

I would like to seek a clarification as to what is considered as unacceptable comments on each others' (posting) habits, as per the Mod action described in this post plus Paul's and my own comments following it. Because if advice to other posters is illegal, then we can as well shut down a large num...

Re: EGF: Has It Changed? How? [split]

Since a forum effectively does not exist apart from its members, those members in general are an inherent part of this discussion. Obviously personal slurs or attacks are never acceptable; but talking in principle about tolerance for the means of expression used by others or suggesting asking for c...

Re: Forum Wackiness

The actual problem is that Google (Chrome's maker) has unilaterally decided that any site not offering a secure connection, or a incorrectly configured secure connection, is inherently dangerous, even if there's nothing on the site that could potentially harm anyone or anything. This means users get...

Re: FML general thread [8]

So I have a new upstairs neighbour on the floor above my apartment (who has a dog, but this isn't about the dog, which is pretty quiet in general). We have a collective heating system, with the tubing running from the basement up through all the apartments. Since my new neighbour has been living in ...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZsG7WJVZv8 It's visually interesting, but we've seen good looking trailers for bad movies before. My experience with the Valerian franchise is rather limited, so I don't know if the story could be good or not. ...

Re: About a Mass Production Eva Figure

Depends on who you ask I guess (original price was 3,800 yen by the looks of it, about 40 bucks), but know that these figures were notorious for arriving broken in the box (especially the translucent variants).

Re: FML general thread [8]

Gorn is pretty horrifying. Even knowing it exists and people like it is horrifying. Oh no, gorn was not the problem - most of it is so crazily over the top that I involuntarily crack up any time I see any of it anyway (a bit like some overly bloody horror movies where the bright red blood pisses al...

While reading a daily comic on Danbooru I noticed the "amputee" tag (and its multi-thousands occurrence). I guess I should've known better than clicking on that tag on a site that also hosts rather risque (and more) drawings... :facepalm:

Re: Computer Stupidities

Most motherboard manufacturers are now in China, expect terse explanations in manuals (in most cases, multilingual) which requires you to Google for technical terms such as UEFI or M2 SSD. OEM versions they make, including server boards, requires more explanation, so thicker manuals, and also have ...
