#1201544 Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

Disclaimer - I'm not an expert in antiques, just stuff I've learned from observation and general metalworking and crafts knowledge.

 

Supposedly wormholes can be one of those character aspects that increase value in some cases though of course it'd be so long as it's not an active process and it's not compromised the integrity of the piece in any big way.

Assuming it was imported, they'd not allow it in with an ongoing pest problem and there's a chance it might have been irradiated and/or had a pest treatment in quarantine.

 

Nails from years ago also tend to be handmade in some cases - generally that's blatantly obvious, they'll usually be beefier than you'd otherwise think necessary and have rectangular heads.  Though of course for a fashionable item they'd probably put more effort into making them look less industrial.




#1201510 Thoughts About Dog E-Fence

I get the feeling the biggest sales go to lazy people who CBF training their animals and end up with a headfucked dog who's paranoid outside of it's allotted 30 square metres of the planet and a total pest when inside of it.

A better system would be a collar that goes around the nutsack of the owner and delivers a shock when unsupervised pets stray to where they don't belong.




#1201370 What's the difference between a piano, a tuna, and a pot of glue?

This joke, the piano and the tuna are all B-flat.

Yep, it really is him.  Work/kids warning.

Some fart smella is trying to generate search engine hits for his penile enlargement pills.

DL'ing now for later perusal.  Seems it's been edited to satisfy a © claim.  Aired on the ABC at some point, probably before DTV came along.

I highly doubt they are and even then the layout and location would likely vary enormously from one Bios to another, even for the same board.

 

More likely "dump analysis" and "hey, update the Bios!" are 2 unrelated events.

Whirlpool got it... WTF?  Why didn't we think of it?

C64 mini.  Good things - you can hook up a USB keyboard and flashdrive and mount D64 images without needing to mod the device to do so.   Joystick should work on a PC so could be used for other games and emulators.

Bad things - the keyboard built into it is fake, it's an emulator built into a SOC device, the video and audio lag is pretty shocking.

 

$149 @ JBHiFi - that's way steep, you could probably find an open-source solution that runs on Arduino or RasPi and come in under half that.

"Spoilt self-indulgent-entitled-wannabes."

 

The problem with that line - it applies almost equally to practically all professional sports people these days.




#1201091 Video fixing

Posted by Rybags on 26 March 2018 - 07:12 PM

"What were the problems you are experiencing..." - you've mixed past and present tense in the wrong way with that question.

Better would be "What problems were you experiencing..."

 

Audio a bit crappy.  Not too fussed with scrolling still images.  IMO you'd be better off doing them fullscreen with transition effects between each one.

 

"Why did you decide to coooperate with..." - I didn't extensively watch but the relationship seems more like Savvycom are a service provider?  So the description of the relationship is a bit off.

 

Overall on the video - too much green.  But I suppose if that's their corporate colour you have to live with it.

OK, then the thing to do now would be to backup your personal data in case they decide to do a Windoze reinstall without bothering to preserve anything.

I had a similar issue with my old HD4870.

 

Could play 3D games for hours, do standard 2D stuff for days but it had an intermittent lockup issue with video and some 2D accelerated gaming.

So maybe it's the graphics card.  There's distinct parts of the core that are only used by the video codecs so it might be your problem.

 

But if they're willing to take it back and replace whatever they find wrong, then take advantage.
