This never works out practically. The upgrades are always more expensive than simply purchasing a new laptop.

Compared to other disney star wars, mandalorian was OK, certainly watchable.

Picard was better than JJ Abrams star trek but on par with enterprise. Just about watchable but not something id be waiting to watch each week.

I nearly gave up on wandavision but it gets better.

There is a reasonable amount to do for free. Certainly enough to keep you busy for a few months but the veneer starts to peel and you realise you need to grind heavily or plump up decent cash.

I wasnt prepared to put money into it but cannot complain about the free stuff.

Guns and knives kill people. Cigarrettes too. Best ban those just in case.

As a parent to two girls and a grandparent to two girls the stories they tell me about harassment, catcalling, groping on the bus, general asshattery by men is pretty strong. Luckily they are strong minded, but they shouldnt need to be. My son doesnt experience anything comparable.

The youngest girl is 12 and has stories from her bus rides to school. Thats how bad things can be and they dont live in a particularly bad place.

We have pen testing that does this sort of thing. Sends random emails to people and look at the uptake. It is a disciplinary offence to fail one. Mail rules inject banners on external emails to warn against opening any attachments or following office 365 links.

We send emails rarely nowadays, teams is where most of the action is for us.

windows 10 was dog awful till 1604. onsite we had start menu issues, blue screens, profiles corrupting but 1604 was a solid base. We had similar issues with teh first 1703(?) but 1709 was again solid. We ran with 1709 till 1809 and again 1909 we are currently running H2 upgrades. All these upgrades have been through WSUS and have been pretty painless so far.

we run hundreds of volume license PCs, laptops and windows tablets. We even have a couple of 32bit LTSC tablets on old atom CPUs - these run just fine. We have had NO machines that havent worked, all of our machines run pretty much daily and we would know if you couldnt do most things. Drivers are pretty much "what comes with windows" on almost all the machines - except those with dedicated GFX, those get the manufacturers GFX drivers (probably about 70 or so machines and another 20 laptops). The oldest desktops are optiplex 760 with core 2 duo (4gb RAM and 256SSD), the newest are ryzen 4 laptops and a few 9 series i5 desktops. The bulk are 6 series i5 laptops. All have SSDs. They are tier 1 suppliers (dell, HP etc) as they need to have security modules installed. All of them have full encryption and are quite twitchy if hardware of sometimes software changes - it is easy to get bitlocker to trip if you start messing with UEFI settings. Docking stations can be a bit of a pain due to the network card changes when docked/undocked, there are tools in windows 10 to mitigate this though. We have special USB sticks that are also hardware encrypted, these are fun to pair at times (I work in a nuclear power station, there is quite a bit of security). We have two factor auth with smart cards, laptops usually need a USB card reader, desktops have one in the keyboard.

For us it just works. We get a new machine, add it to the deployment inventory, PXE boot and a domain joined, fully software installed machine comes out the other end (in about an hour). I really dont get why people complain about windows 10, other than the front end it is almost no different to 7 under the bonnet. Evolved yes but pretty much the same. Ive been administering PCs (as a job) since windows for workgroups 3.11. W98ME and vista were the worst desktop OS for me - server os has just improved at every step (2012 was a bit of a shit to manage as you had the silly move to edge start menu 2012R2 solved that though)

In what passes for medicine coming out of Washington these days, people are being told that after receiving their second C-19 vaccination that it will still be necessary to wear face masks because--get this--even though you are now immune to the strain and cannot develop C-19, and cannot carry it since you are immune, it will still be possible for you to pass "it" on to other people...;) I kid you not! My wife and I have received the first and then the second "booster" vaccine dose, and our masks have come off. Hallelujah.

When I was in grammar school we were inoculated against the smallpox virus in a national vaccine program--we never wore masks, and yet the contagious viral disease, smallpox, is virtually wiped out today in the US. Ditto the polio virus--a serious contagious viral disease all but wiped out in the US because of first the Salk vaccine followed by the Sabin vaccine. No facemasks were worn by anyone in the US. Why? For the same reason Fauci and friends originally advised no one to wear masks because the viral particles could not be stopped by them. I'm just waiting for Washington to start telling people to watch out breaking a mirror and walking under a ladder without wearing a facemask! This is supposed to be the 21st century--not the 12th.

Im afraid thats not how nearly all vaccines work. You will still need to mask up and distance for quite some time yet. Here is a medical abstract if you want some reliable peer reviewed explanations:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7058279/

You can get sterilising vaccines, those do indeed work "immediately" and kill off all the intended infection. These are the nirvana of vaccines and surprisingly low in number.

Meningococcal is a great example of a leaky vaccine.

Or even good old HepB

love a good steak though. We have a really good butcher near us (there is a cattle market and abattoir round the corner so you not only know which farm but also the herd that it came from). A really good thick rump steak nice and rare. Served with some crispy kale with chili and a good sized mushroom with sauteed onion. Oh yeah.

I have a synology nas at home. A 4 bay thing. It has excellent cloud backup software that can back up google, azure and onesrive/sharepoint. It is great for syncing between different cloud providers.

Beastsaber is a great resource for beat saber too. With the sync mod it is really easy to add more tracks. We have hundreds on our game now.

I am really really surprised beast saber hasnt been shut down yet.

2100 wn8 here. Median tier 8. Ive spent maybe 50 on this game in 8 years. No premium tanks above tier6. That is my fav range, t6 to t8.

Easy to play, have never found it pay to win. Just dont grind and save your xp.

Not played in a year though, lost the will. Even logged in at Christmas and got free premium which sat unused.

I might pick it up again when steam launches.

well insulated scandanavian house here. Our annual electricity was 5620KWh and gas at 14430KWh. It is a 4 bedroom large house. Heating is on from October till April, no air con. However, after spending a fair amount of time in Japan, households are smaller and heating is not on for a vast majority of the year, air conditioning will be the biggest factor.

Then self isolate and contact emergency services if it gets worse? At least you will be clean for the hospital?
