  1. I also discovered that ChromeOS' VM has sound support now and doesn't need any janky hacks. ????

  2. "It's like some company sells you a bomb to test your house against earthquakes" - ( https://youtu.be/y_bbX_Ch1Z8 )

    You know what I would rather have seen ? This guy showing us cheap ways to implement a cheap protection or tester against these things. I mean the "USB Killer Tester" pretty much looks like a SMD Keramic Condensator and 2 wires that come out of it ( see 1:45 of this vid and https://youtu.be/MW1mk68YdJM )

    Nothing against this YouTuber but I imagine that a lot of children watch his stuff. I mean, remember when Linus Tech Tips talked about this too ?

    ... Well in the very least I now have more reasons to X-ray USB devices. Unless if that is somehow bad for their data.

  4. So who here unironically still watches the Simpsons ? I honestly gave up somewhere at season 10 ( which were on local TV around 2004 ) and ever since I completely gave up on them. Then 13 years later some guy with the name Super Eyepatch Wolf made this thing ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/874749 ) and I went... "Ahhh... The loss of writers was the death knell and Simpsons evolved into something it was never destined/intended to be"

    And no I do not count coming home and glomping the couch after a long day of work where you accidentally hit the remote-control, TV turns on and the simpsons happens to be on so you watch it. I mean such levels of exhaustion do not happen often to me, but they do occasionally happen.

    I might even quote homer when I see it, "Up next, it is the simpsons" ... Do'h ... I am not going anywhere for a while, I wish I had a Sgrapers... Hmm... SFrankerZrs drool

  5. Does anyone remember Evil Spock ? ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/874731 , memory alpha link ).

    I kinda have need for a quick photoshop of Elon Musk with an Evil Moustache like that. I'm probably going to spend tomorrow working on that when there is noone at work and nothing to do. As is usual for a Friday. Then when it is complete, throw it in the directory where one of my co-workers has his desktop picture set to refresh from.

  7. Well, there goes the last of my hope.

    Apparently Star Wars Episode 9 was being filmed and edited at the same time. ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/874706 ) It is already a miracle if a one-off movie is being made well by editing and filming at the same time, but for something that will be put under a magnifying lens by millions upon millions of Star Wars fans ?

    Might as well brace for the insanity that will come from it. Idunno, Maybe blaming GamerGate as a reason why many people dislike a movie ( oh yes, that did happen previously, go read http://rainbowdash.net/url/874707 if you want to lose your faith in humanity )

    But hey, who knows, maybe I am wrong. Time will tell. But I will reserve FULL rights to rant about it some more when time comes to pass.

    • @mrmattimation If something that is usually done subsequent is done simultaneously in order to meet a significantly more tight release schedule then...

      Well what would you call it if you were specifically told not to call it a 'rush job' ?

      You might want to look into how other modern movies are made, Especially Star Wars by Disney and MCU ( Also by Disney ). Though I guess there is tons to learn regarding failures by other studio's as well. For instance take http://rainbowdash.net/url/874715 ( 6:38 - 7:00 , would you look at that smug face, yowzers )

      Now does it "have to" be bad that they are doing to SW:e9 ? Ofcourse not. However if I rub my crystal ball while throwing my geomancy rocks and somehow simultaneously manage to shake my magic 8 ball, wiggle my divination rod, flip some tarot cards, twiddle some fortune sticks AND use one of those human girly teenager fortune teller thingies. They would either tell me "Outlook not so good" or "You are about to have an accident"

    • @drinkingpony i would call it efficiency. seems to me you're looking for reasons to not like a movie that isn't out yet before it comes out

    • @mrmattimation And it seems to me that you are denying just how likely it is for history to repeat itself. I would be a lot more happy with it when historically actions which I describe as 'Rush Job' were more likely to give good products.

      We'll see when the thing comes out. Then again we got here merely with me saying that "I lost hope" which was and still is a hyperbolic statement.

  8. !techponies Read this manual with me for fun and giggles
    1. 47 headphoneAmplifiercomponents installation drawing: from low to high principle, namely the first low welding components, such as resistor. Ohkay I sorta know what they mean here
    Pay attention to the polarity, can not meet the. Element name element label polarity fair enough, I know what they mean here, there is a little table here pointing out that there is a polarity for things like LED and electrolyic capacitors, and it does not matter for the Monolythic capacitors & resistors.

    But then

    Shall not be plugged into the IC 5532 direction, otherwise will burn IC 5532

    What ? ... I shall scour the internet looking for a YouTube video or something trying to explain this.

  9. This is the first picture I saw of the new 007, James Bond. He looks about ready to say "No Mr Villain, I expect you to fall asleep as I use my creep-face to watch you succumb. Which is my fool-proof scheme to give you vivid nightmares"

    Just saying that even if Malek makes a great bond, this picture is none too flattering. http://rainbowdash.net/url/874667

  10. Some boobthusiast just pointed out to me that Tifa's boobs are smaller in the FF7 remake.

    1. I have not been interested in Tifa's model since I thought I saw an animation error somewhere in the movie-esque bit of FF7 where she falls on the airship and it is looking like something wants to burst from her midriff ( probably a modelling skeleton )

    2. Where were you about 4 years ago when we were all amazed when she fought Yang ? http://rainbowdash.net/url/874647

  11. The feeling when you solder pins to a LED ring and then it falls down to the ground in such a way that the pins rip out the solder pads rendering the LED ring useless.

  14. I just bought a video game on the sole basis that it had local co-op.

    Turns out that it is actually what it says on the tin. Who knew. Just played 2 quick solo games to try it out before I will subject my friends to this. And that is what it is at this point, subjecting my friends to this as it a WAY more scary game than I imagined it would be, even with that name it has.

    When I was playing the game alone I really did not want to come across any Xenos, they killed me anyway. The second time I was going to make em pay for what they did to me the first time. Turns out that I turn into a little girl as soon as I have low visibility and a dead battery.

    "I do not want to go down that corridor, even though I have a big gun I would really prefer not to have my face eaten"

    I really like it, only costs me 10 dollar for a 4-pack. Probably will throw those exces keys around next LAN party.

  16. Something I just found out I really like : Some angry literal Muppet talking angrily about movies and stuff

    Something I just found out I grew really tired of : This same Muppet talking about Politics, even if he snarks at everything.

    I'll leave a link to those interested in this here, after where this Muppet stops talking about politics and starts talking about the rest of what happened in 2018. Which mostly includes some movies ( Ready Player One ), E3, Gordon Ramsay's new show, cocaine. It's main appeal is snark for the sake of more snark, but making me laugh is it's goal, and that is why I am sharing it.

  17. To hobby solder with solder that has lead ( Pb ) in it. Or do I make it all about 15 degrees of hell hotter and go lead-less, try to learn to solder with what is essentially almost pure tin using flux that could pose equal if not greater health risks. Why are there no simple answers ?

    • @drinkingpony My tip is already crusty. It's a very old soldering iron (about 12 years?). It's already very abused. Last time I scraped off all the gunk and applied a layer of solder before turning it off. Whenever I buy a better soldering iron station then I'll take better care of the tip and buy some replacements.
      I still have a few Deutsche Mark coins somewhere floating in my closet.

    • @adiwan Get a nice soldering station with a dial on it to set the target temperature, I got an Aoyue for about 35 Euro. For some reason Amazon.de is more expensive ( 47 ). Strange, normally Amazon is cheaper, even for me, with shipping costs included.

      Ahwell, most important thing required for when you want to learn how to solder well or when you want to make really nice SMD, THT, Stripboarding or otherwise prevent the nightmare that comes from cold-joints and burned-joints it has to be a thermostat.

      Soldering with just a pen you directly stick into the wall outlet or even a soldering gun is doable, however as I found out, you are going to have such a better experience with that thermostat dial. It's like spreading butter on your toast with a longsword, I mean, sure, you could do it, but it is not the optimal tool.

    • @drinkingpony My cheapo soldering station has a "temperature" dial but that's more a suggestion. It works so far and I'm too lazy to get a better one. I haven't had a cold joint so far and for my imprecise hands it's good enough.

    • @drinkingpony I haven't seen Bob's Burgers in a while but my last impression was that it was alright. Yeah, a bit clingy at times but mostly in a relatable way. I can also see its appeal or lack thereof.

    • @adiwan [ mostly in a relatable way. ]

      Now I know that is a feeling, and I could never tell you that you are wrong. But things like Gravity Falls and MLP feel more relatable to me than BB. Not in that I actually come into contact with magic on the daily ( I should fix that ) but I would save my sibling from vampires or get all exited when I get one of my friends involved with one of my hobbies to the point where I forego my normal silent and reserved demeanor ( That is a long way around to get to scratch my back, but I hope you get what I mean... Fluttershy and Tank, I am thinking about that thing ). The motivations seem to remain stable and similar enough where I am able to crawl in their mindset.

      Meanwhile in BB, let us say that the characters are indeed deeper to the point where the other two pale in comparison. Then you run into the trouble of never ever being able to show us enough of their actual personalities to make enough connections for relatablility, and that takes me out.
