  1. @adiwan I do not know what bakelite is. Nor do I know what that circuit boards looks like but I guess that is where the pro comes from ( picture please )

    Now you might want to check before you begin if the thing is 'smart' enough to not go out of bounds and destroy itself. I did a little bit of reading on them machines.

  2. @adiwan The abundance of frogs makes it extremely tempting, but the art style is offputting.

  3. @adiwan So they used VR and 3D printing to help seperate conjoined twins. You do VR and 3D printing... Are you pondering what I'm pondering? https://time.com/5627206/safa-marwa-ullah-conjoined-twins/

  4. @adiwan Too bad Prime Day seems to be over. But that looks like a lovely machine. Looking forward to seeing your first acrylic cutout of pony :)

  6. @adiwan I guess being shunned has put me out of practice with fixing family computer problems.

  7. @adiwan Desktop Linux distros are fine but after a while but I got tired of FrankerZing with them. I'd rather use my computer to make stuff than have tinkering with it be an end unto itself, because it makes me crazy.

  8. @adiwan That's nice for you, but we were talking about a Mom. I actually have a Chromebook for my tech self though and it's serviceable. It's easy enough to tear apart if you want to, but even staying inside the framework that Google has set up gets you pretty far since it can run Linux, Android, and ChromeOS.

  9. @adiwan Off in the distance you hear a voice (probably mine) whispering "Chromebook, Chromebook"

  10. @adiwan You forgot the clones of Luke named Luuke and Luuuke ( no really ).

    But yeah, fair point. All movies have severe faults and cracks in them. However it took Disney only 2 mainline movies to break the fandom. The two biggest sides seem to be those who absolutely love it and defend it so hard till their mind seems to break ( warning, 2 hour podcast of someone whose mind seems to break defending the movie https://youtu.be/bXs0LXqK2SM ). Those who still come out with movies why it all sucked and why it is all going to hell. I am not even sure if that 'side' is actually truthfull when they shout 'Please make Brie Larson a Jedi, let it all die !' or not.

    Meanwhile I like to see myself as in the middle and heavily in the minority.

    Imagine a kid creating a beautiful sandcastle on a beach only to come back the next day to find out that there is now a squatter playing with 'your' sand castle. Surely you can share, right ? But part of me still goes "You know, this could have been better

  11. @adiwan Reminds me of a story, now the details have been lost to time but I distinctly remember that somehow a professional looking "anti-anti virus" sign being made for our local version of a computer convention.

    "128 of the best selected virusses to nuke down your pesky anti-virus" "Pester your system with Sircam, Nimda, Klez, Sapphire, Gaybird, NuclearRAT, Sasser, Blaster, and all our other pattented 'lifesavers'" ( You may have noticed that those are mostly famous virusses from the first half of the 2000's )

    Some people actually inquired for our 'product' on the day of the convention. One of them actually wanted to use it because he would be fired sooner or later.

    Morale of the story is... Virus Killers are snakeoil these days, attacks are most likely to come from within. Like BadUSB, No AntiVirus gonna protect you from an angry employee.

    ... Or dumb mother ? Idunno.

  12. @adiwan I know where you are coming from but no. I do not accept things like grimoire cards for something I would have liked. ( This doubles as a Destiny jab )

    I do not need to remind you that Disney upon acquiring the Star Wars franchise the first thing they did was declare all the extended universe stuff un-canon. I might as well just skip the middle man and start to read fan-fiction.

    Hell, come to think of it. 3 months ago I chuckled at CuckleFhuck... Fluffle PuffleChuck... one of those things, hold on let me get the thing I remember

  13. @adiwan Everything dies if you hit it on the head hard enough.

    Except Captain Phasma. Mark my word she will either be in the next episode/movie shrugging off a critical hit on her head, or she will not be in the next episode/movie at all making her character fit in between Watto and Fodesinbeed Annodue.

    All I wanted is some amazing woman be awesome. Not for this woman to be wrapped in tin-foil and have less screen time or impact than Admiral Motti ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/874904 )

    Heck I could write her in a more epic space opera and I am drunk half the time.

    We start off with StarKiller Base being under New Republic's command with Captain Phasma pretty much being the head honcho when the Supremacy, multiple dreadnoughts, some Interdictor Star Destroyers ( they block hyperspace and communications ) to take over the facility. Then later have Kylo force-choke Phasma on display and throw her to the floor. Helmet flies off, and you see her eyes as she surrenders to Snoke.

  19. @adiwan Go to bed silly Brony. Everything has a pause button, sleep does not. At 3S/D I would not even be able to hum the Star Wars theme, I would probably hum the Spiderman theme or something.

  21. @adiwan Aye, I was thinking that, but then it would leave a whole lot of Ca₅(PO₄)₃ for sure tho. Also other trace elements I am sure...

  24. @adiwan Well, that works. However the last time I was toying around with it I was hooking them up directly with SATA. Resulting in no spindown.

    That might actually be the sollution I was looking for ( though not one that I wanted per-se ). Just offload the spindown timer to the IC that also translates SATA into USB 3.X.

    Wait does the new RPi have USB 3.X. ?

  25. @adiwan I was not selling any silly idea's. But I might think about building a NAS myself. Though the only thing that is on my mind prior to just doing it would be if I can get hard drives to spin down when not in use while still online.

    At least the last time I tried that, that part alone gave me lots of nightmares.

  26. @adiwan Oh nice, those finally came around. checks online. Well half the stores I usually go to are down, but I was expecting those things to be at least tripple the price.

  29. @adiwan The only thing I can think of that would not be bad ( like the word 'Lose' would imply ) when loose is a timing scedule.

    Pretty much the opposite of a deadline.

    So... I guess it is pretty much always negative unless for that one in a million time it is not ?

  30. @adiwan I guess you see something I do not want to see in said spammers name.

    Now I hope I can distract myself long enough with stupid nonsense so I will not dwell on it, after all you pretty much said there is something there :o
