  1. Just before I finished up some late night reading, this morning, my desktop decided to promptly turn it's power off and not turn back on. I've had no luck again today, either with the PSU in the PC, not with one borrowed from a known working box. At this point I guess I'm left looking at the mobo or CPU as prime suspects. Anything I should try out before shopping for a replacement build? I'm kind of disappointed that I only had this last for 4.5 years, but meh.
  2. They're also not so jaded to assume anyone replying must be a bot, because who else would want to post here at this point, so win win

    I'm a little confused, among all the talk of toasters, did I miss the bit where homeless people are no longer allowed to use public toilets if they're unisex?
  4. Pretty good bot, given it's getting timing right, is on topic, and isn't talking about conspiratorial BS derailings. Can we have more of them?

    Isn't that just a basic healthcare plan from a GP? Which seems quite unrelated to NDIS and social workers? Or is this some old person perk?

    That's a bold claim to make for someone who avoids urinals.

    So your argument against having better toilets for everyone is you don't like seeing people's feet in the stall beside you, but don't want that changed? You don't. You skip urinals, and as a bonus avoid people feeling uncomfortable when it's busy and someone insists on standing elbow to elbow with you, rather than waiting for someone to finish and step off. Kicking goals left right and centre, here. Was that toaster open to everyone? Is pickup OK?

    Ah yes, a fully self contained space with noone else in there with you. Unlike all of the toilet stalls in both male and female public toilets out there, where you... what, have someone standing in there to hold your bag and coat while you sit down and unlock your phone? I don't know of anyone that *wants* to use a public toilet. It's all about how urgent the need is. But that has nothing to do with what I was saying. To be fair, they may've been confused by the repeated times you mentioned architectural toasters.
  10. Yep, setting it up now. Was going to last night but got too tired. It's... according to Ryzen Master, not. But everything else reports it sitting 100% at base clocks. Ideally I should be running the benchmarks with nothing else running, but I'm not. Closing game launchers and firefox is well enough, but there'd be a lot of python services I'd need to manually pause. It's just weird because I have taskmanager open on the second screen (along with Afterburner) to track CPU core usage and temps and etc, and they didn't show CPU usage high in the background.

    You need to visit more outdoors concerts. You still occasionally see trailers, which end up being gender segregated - one trailer male, one female - but the vast majority are single portaloos, lined up as space dictates in long lines. Ask more female friends/family members/probably not colleagues how often they refuse to sit on a public toilet but still need to use it.

    You could have mesh and vents and clear spaces too. It just needs to be low enough and small enough to not have people looking under, and high enough to not be easily look-over-able, right? They don't need to be enclosed fully, that's just a simple setup for places that're running extraction in the bathroom anyway. I'm not sure which option works out better for privacy vs cleaning. You say this like it isn't already commonly done. As a man, how often do you sit on a public toilet vs not sit on it, when using it for usages that traditionally require sitting? So your solution for men who don't want to stand in urine, at a public urinal, where men are so notorious for having bad aim that it's one of your major points, is to... stand further back from the urinal and spread the urine more effectively across the floor? I'm about to blow your mind, but given my go-to shoes aren't waterproof, this is probably something I notice a lot more than you. But feel free to lecture me some more.

    I really would love it if you could justify this statistic.

    When you try to make a point but make it muddier. That's a pretty laughable strawman, but maybe you want to talk to more women about the mess left in women's toilets, especially on seats. Also you may need to make up your mind: advocating for urinals where by definition you stand in piss, but also advocating against unisex toilets because people might... stand in piss. I'm not at all surprised that the anti-pc brigade is so lacking in imagination.

    cold boot issues

    So if it's not turned off, it's fine, but just sometimes finnicky on boot? Able to change the motherboard battery, or check to see if it's still alive?

    Ah yes. The mythical mens toilets that are urinals only with no space at all wasted on stalls.

    Yeah, you're arguing against unisex toilets by saying that the current layout of your toilets is subpar and therefore you want to keep them Every unisex toilet I've used and seen is fully enclosed like an actual household toilet, not some big person version of what you see in a primary school, where kids can't be trusted with that much privacy. The best ones I've seen, they're in a single row, sometimes along both sides of the walkway to access them. At each end are washbasins, and they usually have multiple entrances.

    Correct. a) look who suddenly cares what the UN says when it suits b) who cares if there are no urinals. You're no longer artificially splitting the pool of available toilets, and can load balance across all of them rather than a portion. c) of the many outdoor concerts I've worked, they have trucked in lots of portable toilets. They're almost always not a urinal - see b)
  20. I think winrar and 7zip have the gui market stiched up. A bunch of open source stuff will still prefer one type of zip or another, just for licencing reasons. I personally have winrar opening most things, but that's only from habit over the last 20+ years, and because I know it covers almost any type of archive I want to open, from legacy systems.

    Unisex, with options for larger disabled/parent stalls.

    Is the house remodelling to aid a wheelchair, or to just remove trip hazards and have space for some rails?
  24. Dunno if you're up with Atomic of late, but there's a good bet at least 80% of participants in this thread don't use 'social media'. FB wants all the money from publishing ads, but none of the responsibility for not allowing libel to not just be published but to spread.
  25. ...who actually still uses ARJ? This isn't the 90s anymore.
