  1. Started binge-watching Community. Before I have never watched more than a few episodes.

  2. To be fair: The 3D printer I bought was as cheap as it could reasonably be with the feature set it has. So it is not a huge feat to excel that price.

  3. I hope the new hotend I ordered for my 3D printer will solve all my problems I currently have. It's about the same price as the printer itself. Currently my problem is that the hotend doesn't melt the plastics fast and consistent enough, as well as heat that creeps up the filament path and gets soft at the wrong time and thus causes small clogs and extruder motor skipping and some filament grinding. Also with the new hotend I can print with more exotic materials like nylon or ASA, as it can also reach temperatures up to 450°C. Super exciting. My current one would release neurotoxins at any temperature above 260°C as it is lined until the end with a PTFE tube.

  4. When I was shopping I was under the impression I needed to buy toilet paper. Now I have so much that it will last until the end of the year. My TP stash was in a closet and they were out of sight and thus also out of mind.

  6. OMG. My idiot neighbours just pumped up a bounce castle and about 20 children are playing (also 20 adults standing next to it).

  7. Never update your PC before going to sleep, especially when a package (or multiple packages) take extremely long. The whole LaTeX texlive suite takes an eternity to extract and configure.

  9. Paid back my student loan in one swoop. I hadn't much debt, so it was easy enough.

  10. I really appreciate the amount of different kinds of bread that are sold in Germany but I've never been so disappointed as in the mustard crust bread that I've bought recently. Just from the name it was so promising but the end result that touched my mouth was so mediocre bland in a bad way. So much so that the hints of mustard are distracting and not enriching the whole eating experience.

  11. I have one not well-working stepper motor (it doesn't have the power of its prime) and I'm thinking of building a polishing machine, more exactly https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3666116 or even more exactly this remix https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4230298 due to the different glass size.

  12. @scribus no I haven't. I'm not watching the news a lot. This is quite ridiculous and hilarious

  13. @mrmattimation For decades a lot of countries have voting by mail. There are real world numbers how insignificant the frauds are. Also not giving people the opportunity to vote is soooo democratic.

  14. I cannot understand the weird fascination of customers and manufacturers for wireless airbuds.

  17. @scribus I'd say every age is terrible, just in a different way.

  18. @scribus From the sounds I receive it's a probable explanation. The trampling sounds transfer through the walls up such that I can hear them and my floor is swinging with the trampling giving me some unpleasant proto-seasickness.

  19. What is worse than a 3-year old little brat? That brat's parent(s)! I'm in murder mode.

  20. I'm so glad I've waited. With the AMD Ryzen 9 3900x price drop I can think again of making a new PC.

  21. @scribus I'm a mostly hygienic reasonable person and already practiced most basic things like keeping distance and washing regularly my hands (going outside, coming home, before a meal...) and being highly aware of not touching the face upon touching others (shaking hands for example). Seeing others doing the same thing on a loosened quarantine is almost impossible. Whenever seeing public rest rooms somewhere else or at work... You lose faith. In my opinion it'll spread even faster because the mass of infected people is higher than at the beginning. 3 months in a tight lockdown would solve this problem, however most people gave up after a few weeks.

  23. Two dozen people (including many children) fired up the grill and partied in plain sight of my window this afternoon. Because of those idiots we have all to suffer.

  24. @mrmattimation There are Ryzen CPUs with an integrated GPU, but they are on the low-end and have a G at the end of the model number.

  25. @scribus I'm principally bothered that there are ants in my apartment in the first place.

  26. Today I've killed about 30 ants that tried to invade my apartment. I live on the 3rd level of the building. I haven't expected so many of them this high off the ground. I'm glad they were only in the bathroom where they could be easily spotted in front of the white tiles.

  27. My face face mask broke. The part for attaching the rubber strap snapped. I fixed it with a good 'ol 3D pen and fused the part back together. Clumsily, but it holds for now.

  28. "Like, Comment and Subscribe", the most uttered phrase on Youtube. Why don't they all shorten it to "LCAS", as a single difficult and to pronounce and short word? Or with a little bit of reordering it can be "SLAC" or "CLAS" or even "LACS". The call to action has become a call to snore and groan over the time to the point that's implicitly always assumed at the end of the video even when it's not said.

  30. @scribus I'd consider calling it a double crit fail on an advantage roll.
