  1. After several encounters with my most recent enemy (electricity-eating fungi) I've decided to study the damn things and figure out how to eradicate them.

    They're not actively harmful, but colonies form in low-current circuits, and cause devices to stop working. Phone lines and tv remotes are the two places I most often find them in, and even though I fully clean the devices, after a while the fungi shows up again.

  2. Vehicle registration in California is expensive. I tried to calculate what it would be without penalties and it's still over $100. Pennsylvania it's only like $30 or so.

      You know, I was just thinking ? Can we get some sort of system that we can designate something as spam ?

      Oh and it would obviously be logged who designated something as spam so we could not supress eachother without a mod lurking over would-be-abusers.

      Yeah, no idea if that can be implemented, if someone wants that implemented, or even if it is a good idea in the first place. But I swear if I see advertisements about the paleo diet again I am going to scream like a caveman.

      • ChromeOS added device forwarding to the VM in the last update. That was pretty much the only feature missing from the VM.

        • I wasted half a day on fixing my mother's PC. More precisely Firefox. It opened every few minutes an error message that its profile couldn't be loaded. However it was all caused by Kaspersky Anti Virus. Deactivating it made it not complain again.

        • It feels so weird to be on SPC with some of the people from here, but half a decade after, all of us old and wise now. But I'm thankful for those connections, and for this place's uncanny ability to bring to light the most interesting people.

          Who could have predicted that we'd go from bronies to shamans and wizards.

          • Well, this is interesting. Today I learned that there are *.CID files which you can play in VLC player that are effectively just Amiga music files.

            99.99% sure that most virus-killers on Windows would declare all sorts of Red Alert if I were to try and make a nice library of those things though.

            Max: Because she's so underground.

                  1 : Never check bank balance
                  2: Pretend everything is fine
                  3: Live in constant state of fear
                  4: Repeat

                    Maybe he cries on the inside manifest themselves as laughter ?
