    All I ever wanted was to be a mod

    i'm honoured that i got a guernsey before the end of time as we know it not that i am wielding my superpowers, more just feeling strangely like some officer on the titanic after the iceberg strike, and the captain says "you can steer for a while if you want" okay, carry on all you superheroes you'll always be superheroes to me

    i marvel at how little storage i use apart for the 4tb nas (which is mostly full of movies and series that are now rendered pretty redundant by the availability of streaming, my boot ssd has almost all my exes and manages to use 40gb ; the 2tb local hdd for "storage" is about half fulll and had a redundant copy of all my music and photos i admit i'm itching for an nvme boot drive, but even 500gb would be gross overkill

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    i was alerted to this being flagged, and commented (to nich) "i'm not sure if they have a concept of it or not, so the accuracy is debatable it's a pretty patronising comment, but i'm not sure that makes it unallowable, or even deserving of response at mod level" it's difficult i spent 4 years in darwin as a child in the late 60's and witnessed epic racism from the white population (including my mum, who was not happy to be there after coming from melbourne, where at that stage the local indigenous were all but totally invisible), but in all but one interaction the local koories up north always treated my like another human - the one negative interaction was the (probably drunk) older guy who threatened to knife me on my way home alone from the parap pictures late at night, when i must have been all of maybe 11 years old, probably as a representative of all that had been put on him by aforementioned other whites wrt obeying white people's rules, including distancing and isolation, i have a medical friend working in the far north who also made comment of local tribes being repatriated to dry communities who absconded back to the big smoke (relatively) because... booze, really, who were quite content to hitch with tourists to accomplish the trip, putting themselves at contagion risk and then again being returned to the communities to assume all aborigines ignore the rules is like assuming all privileged white people do the same, knowing there are plenty of examples that they are equally disinclined i can't read any impicit racism into jerusalem's comment, and if i did, i'd have to assume he's an ignorant chinaman , umm, asian australian and no, i don't actually think or believe that

    i'm deliberating over whether it's worse, different, or bias the research suggests i shouldn't be capable of noticing a difference, and the clumsiness of swapping cables makes a blinded trial impossible; and the phones are so new they are still allegedly "burning in" soldering i can do; vacillating i do better

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    the system encourages replacement rather than incremental upgrade not just apple, any phone you might name an sd slot should be a standard fitting for extra storage that's why i still like desktops, and why my 2nd gen i5 system eventually ended up a 2nd gen i7 2600k @ 4.1ghz and 16gb of ram at 2133 (rated 2400, but maxed in that cpu setting) and eventually the gtx 1060 6gb, with ab ssd and hdd for storage it was still great until earlier in the year when the imc finally rebelled and would only let me do 1600, and then 1333... still, not bad for almost a decade of service by that chip, with two previous owners, the first of whom may have punished it harder than i ever did (at my very mild 1.24vcore)
