  1. @drinkingpony And you are right. Any cheaper and they always come from China. I don't want to cheap out and pay what I saved in import duties.

  2. @drinkingpony I bought a SainSmart Genmitsu CNC 3018-PRO https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07G55SNZW for 220€ on a deal. There are cheaper variants of this but they come from smaller companies that are less reputable and I don't trust them much. The reviews are OK but that's to be expected for a barebone device of that size. If I want to do more and bigger things I can still make a bigger one with this and a 3d printer like this one https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:790533

  3. @drinkingpony yeah, the threshold was “he showed up at my store”. I feel like regardless of whether or not it actually affected me mentally, seeing the guy who tried to sexually abuse me is at least a little bit noteworthy.

  4. @drinkingpony I mean a) this was a YEARS ago thing, b) everybody already knows about it, and c) I personally don’t actually care that much

  5. @drinkingpony My mother is so frightful in respect to computers that she rather does nothing than anything when a message window appears. She uses her computer mainly for looking for images, google maps/earth, writing greeting card texts and printing, and SOLITAIRE. So there won't be anything infecting her PC. I don't use any anti virus (none on Linux duh) except for Windows Defender because it comes with Windows and does the least amount of damage.

  6. @drinkingpony As a consumer of the new canon (having all the comics that came after the switch) and having only glimpses of experience with the old canon I'm heavily biased. As far as I have gathered the old canon is guilty of several stupid things like clones of Palpatine and Luke and such that appears to be fan-fictiony as well.

  7. @drinkingpony Oh, ehmm, by the way, skip to the 3 minute mark unless if you want the salty unrestrained super right 'funny' opinions of a sock-puppet that was intentionally made just to be all that.

    Though if you want to go in knowing that, the more power to you. Mostly because... Lord of the Rings... Yeah Chuck Wendig went "That thing is bad for I can not read it T_T"

  8. @drinkingpony I understand the implications that a strong woman character being played as a joke but I'm OK with that (being a joke not the ridiculing of a woman). If you want a badass Phasma then it can be only found in other media (comics, books, TV).

  12. @drinkingpony I just recall it as a more or less bright spot between the troubles of 95, 98, and everything past 7. It just worked for me, in a way the OS hasn't since. Well, XP didn't completely suck. But I liked 2000 better. Wonder how Free DOS is holding....

  13. @drinkingpony I just heard it referred to as a fat hernia or an inguinal hernia I think

  15. @drinkingpony You have been on Windows for either 7 editions too many, or 1,990 too few.

  16. @drinkingpony nah this is a fat hernia apparently, which i guess just sorta sits in the way of my intestines which can block me up every now and then. i had a lot of pain relief in hospital (not enough morphine though :() but it's not really painful now, just kinda sore and a lot of rumbly noises

  20. @drinkingpony Honestly all they can achieve with this is getting nazis to be seen positively in the long run. Think jews for example, they were universally disliked up until wwii, the nazis screwed up so badly with it than they became a group you can't criticize in most of the western world.

    More so since what they call "nazis" have nothing to do with what an actual nazi is. Trump is a good example, he might have not delivered on most of the stuff he promised, but anyone else would be laureate after as US president being one of three main actors in the end of the korean war and restart of diplomatic relationships between the DPRK and the USA. Give it a few decades, and once the groups that screech about Trump cease to exist, he'll be seen in an overwhelmingly positive way in historical retrospectives. If these idiots conflate the words "nazi" and "trump", the logical conclussion is that he's a nazi, and therefore nazis are a boogeyman, okish people that are hated by fanatical groups.

  26. @drinkingpony I remember when there used to be a bug in the Linux Kernel that would stop the disk too often and overload it. You had to use hdparm to reset it every time you started or woke the computer. Good times.

  27. @drinkingpony The new RPi has two USB3 ports as well as two USB2 ports. Regarding to SATA and spindown: Look up the program hdparm. With it you can configure a spindown-time for each connected drive separately.

  29. @drinkingpony don't get me on silly ideas. I didn't consider selling mine until now. I want to use mine as a home server and NAS, especially because of the separate gigabit network.
