          • I have ordered new mainboards for my 3d printers from China. The seller claimed I've sent them back. I wrote them that I didn't and wanted them and wouldn't send them back and it might be an error on their side. And if these were in fact mine they should send them to me asap. Now the catch: They have sent the boards yesterday and I've just received my order right now. I think I will receive additional ones in the next few weeks.

                • @mrmattimation No you didn't. You just said "Oh hey something that happened in 2009 is now again happening in 2019, that involves using Nanci Peloci as a skapegoat of one form or another" Just what am I supposed to do with that ? What is ANYONE supposed to do with that ?

                  Also are we just going to ignore 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014... Heck I am sure that I can find SOMETHING to complete the 6 in a row in the very least. I mean, I just need to find something regarding her being blamed for something by someone else right ? Question now is who is saying anything. Would you believe everything that John Boehner or Kevin McCarthy say ? Heck, lets disqualify those people from the 'game'. Now it is suddenly a lot harder to even get 4 in a row.

                  • Instant red flags :

                    I was helping out someone with a Lego domoticz project at a nearby school and this comic ( see attachment ) is on the wall somewhere behind us when I/we hear someone loudly proclaim "I don't get it"

                    I turn around and I see what in most flattering words can only be described as a neckbeard in a trench coat wearing a Tux T-shirt, wielding an apple laptop with many more Linux stickers on it and a big Tux over the apple logo.

                    ( Tux is the Linux penguin mascot BTW )

                    me:"What is it that you do not get ?"

                    fake nerd:"Well, why is HTML a flower pot?"

                    Picard:"Red Alert, all hands to battlestations !". You probably understand my plight now. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875195

                  • No matter where I worked there was always at least one asshole who has no grasp on how to use a toilet brush. I work with people with higher than average education (I assume, I hope) with a higher pay grade than average, however there are some people who lack the basic education on cleaning the toilet bowl from brown Fluffle Puff streaks. Over the course of a week every day I saw a toilet that was afflicted with disgusting brown stains. Besides other points that has ground my gears almost teethless.

Anyway, friendly little dip will probably kidnap himself one of these days, van won't even need to say Candy on the side and he'll walk right aboard. Driver might notice a couple miles later, whole thing'll be spun heartwarming on the news but ultimately it's sad how little anyone cares.

                          To translate all that from coloquial to English. There is a special man coming each year from spain to bring presents to the good kids and... also the bad kids, but they probably would not like what they would find. Usually a bundle of sticks or a bag of salt for the baddies. This man is known as Sinterklaas.

                          Those who know more about either Santa Claus or Krampus ( no really ) can probably see a lot of similarities right there.

                          Also he rides on a horse as primary method of transportation, a wingless horse that can fly.(tall showoff if you asked me)

                          That signpost reads "Parking spot for horses, maximum of 1 hour ( starting 14-11 untill 06-12-2015 ) which roughly falls in line with the dates when it is celebrated. Its probably mostly for his understudies, since the actual one would just fly away before any cop could ticket him.

I like it because I don't need to spread my pinkie finger for CTRL+C, so I just slide my hand down from the base finger placement down and I'm right there where I want to be.

                                • On some better news: I have my almost "dream" keyboard. It's a USB Thinkpad Keyboard with older style keys (no chiclet). The keyboard feels a little bit flimsier than my proper laptop Thinkpad keyboard, however it is still 1000 times better than a modern laptop keyboard like on a newer Dell Latitude laptop. On my company laptop I have huge difficulties typing because of the weird and unnatural form and placement of the keys. I often use F12 and 9 times out of 10 I press the print key or the carriage return key is super slim in the horizontal. Also I have with my new keyboard a proper working "nub". As much I appreciate the gesture from Dell to include the nub in the keyboard but it ain't work or feel right. That and the "mouse" buttons are horribly spongy with almost no tactile feedback and the actuation threshold is too low.
