  3. @scribus I'm glad my monitor has an integrated USB hub. I have a mouse, keyboard, scanner, drawing tablet, VR headset, and an external HDD, a microphone, and a webcam attached to almost all available ports of the whole system. I use the front ones occasionally for the SD card reader. So I'm pretty much maxed out.

  4. @scribus What even happened to floppy drives, EDO RAM, user-upgradable CPU cache, manually selectable device IRQ, Soundblaster, 3Dfx, CRT monitors, PS/2 keyboards, ball mice, IDE, SCSI...?

  5. It depresses me that there are less and less new PC cases with space for optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay). I'm starting to look around for a new PC. As my PC is older and my case has only USB2 ports and an unreliable headphone jack, as well as showing wear I want a new one. My current case is from Cooler Master from 2006.

  6. But in general: Saying "F*** Apple" is always appropriate.

  9. @vcgriffin What?!? AOL as an internet service provider is dead. AOL's only purpose is to be used by people like father for the email address.

  14. Oh God I hate Amazon's bot chat. I always used the email option because I despise the chat. The bot makes it even worse. I had my already prepared text for a complaint for a late prime delivery that gives me a 5€ voucher. The chat takes a lot more steps between my complaint and its resolution and a lot more time. First I have to click trough the bot responses and then do the whole customer support dance to get to my desired result.

  16. I was at my barber to get my hair cut. I went to the nearby electronics store to browse (and buy two sealed Wii U games for cheap). There I saw the dude-bro-iest bros buying XBox Series X. One of them bought two.

  17. Oooh. A potential vaccine was developed (German news site https://www.tagesschau.de/inland/biontech-corona-impfstoff-103.html ). It needs two injections 3 weeks apart. A week after the second injection an immunity to COVID is expected. I hope it is not a fluke.

  18. @scribus I could do that too but the North Sea is toooo damn cold haha I don't know if the indoor skiing halls are open in Summer.... The mountains near me are not tall enough for snow all year around. I would need to drive to the Alps and it takes about 8 hours to get from where I live. But it isn't worth the time and gas.

  20. @scribus Yeah... I understand. California. Palms and barely any falling leaves and constantly warm weather (as in not freezing). In Germany there is a rule of thumb that Summer tires should be used from Easter to October. There are tires that work for all year with an appropriate profile but they are not ideal but usable. Driving the Winter tires in the Summer can be devastating due to the softer rubber mixture. On a very hot day at higher speeds they can degrade super fast. Summer tires have the opposite problem as due to the lower temperatures they are not soft enough to ensure the necessary grip, especially with wet leaves on the ground and heavy rainfall or snow.

  21. @scribus My father just had used a setting on the pneumatic drill higher than needed. Well... I successfully changed the tires and that's what matters. The winter will be probably warm but I don't want to risk driving with summer tires any longer as there were some frosty days this week.

  22. @scribus When I manually tightened the screws in last year's tire change I didn't have to use my full body weight to loose them. When I manual tighten the screws they are as tight as they can get. I would say I have average arm strength but for the life of me I couldn't use the same amount of strength loosening the pneumatic drilled ones. For one screw I had to use a pipe to extend the leverage arm. This was the first time I had to use such measures.

  23. I was a big Simpsons fan but I can now say that I've seen 40 % of the whole series. Aye caramba!

  24. Changed my tires today. Because my father used a pneumatic drill last time I had a hard time loosening the screws. I had to literally stand on the wrench to have enough force to get over the friction.

  25. @scribus He has a memory of a goldfish and an ego as big as Jupiter. His stubbornness and rabid followers will pull him back. Presidency two: electric vote-a-loo. The Fluffle Puff show will repeat again. As much as I have no wish for that I am emotionally preparing it as soon as possible.

  26. @scribus I put my Cassandra mask on and I'll say it's not over yet: Trump will attempt it again in the next election.

  29. Just watched a video about voting in the US and its massive waiting queues at the voting places. I've never had to wait more than 3 minutes.
