Happy Birthday Blue, I know how old you are but I'll never tell! In about 7 months I'll be right there with you (hopefully).

So I finished moving yesterday, plugged my PC in, and no boot. No beeps, no POST, just a blank monitor. The hard drive light comes on for 10s, then goes off, so it's definitely not loading Windows. Turning the PC on wakes the monitor, but it goes back to sleep bc no signal. I repeated te memory, and the power cables on the motherboard and GPU, no dice. I had this issue 5 years ago when I added a new hard drive. Spent hours troubleshooting but nothing worked. Went to bed and tried it in the morning and it worked fine. Tonight I'm going to pull the thing apart and rebuild it i guess.

Man, I sympathize with you. I had the exact same thing happen to me when I moved (June of '17). Set it up, plugged it in - nothing. And back in the day I used to move whatever rig I had at the time to LAN parties all the time, so it wasn't like I didn't know how to be careful. My best guess was that I might have caused a static shock when I vacuumed it out after breaking it down for the move. No idea. Wasted some money on a nice new power supply though. I later bought one of those devices for remotely running the hard drive, and it weirdly ran long enough to recover maybe half the files before conking out.

Well, it's a football Sunday, but it's a bye week for the New York Football Giants. This certainly can be frustrating. But let's be honest, it's been several years in a row now that a week without playing has been one of the high points of the season for my favorite team. So, yay?

The Seahawks had their bye last week, and they liked it so much they decided to take this week off also.

Well, I picked the Steelers to win tonights game, so here's an early congrats to the Bears!

I'd probably more accurate if I picked the games by favorite color.

I hope that the Covid patch ends up working. I've always suspected that some of the people who won't get the shot are simply that afraid of needles. I know, sounds crazy, but if you're one of those people who literally passes out when getting a shot... well, fear can be a strong motivator for stupid behavior.

My 81 year old dad got both the flu and covid booster vaccinations on the same day in the same arm a week or so ago. As far as I know, it didn't seem to bother him at all. As for me, I'm either scheduling my booster on a Friday or taking the next day off of work because that second shot kicked my ass.

I don't think they want you having sex in their hospital.

Yeah, "finish in Hospital" made me smile too.

So my best guess would be sex in an ambulance.

I wonder how much mud and gravel will embed itself in the sides of those tires, and then how hard will it be to clean them out. I would think that a rock stuck up inside there could do some damage as it possibly wears a hole as the tire flexes.

I have a hard time believing that they'll last three times as long as today's tires. Maybe three times longer than a tire that's constantly improperly inflated, but I don't see how the tread itself is any different.

Another thing is that they'll probably need their own custom wheels.

RIP Norm. He was so weird and funny.

Loved Norm. Weird and funny is great way to describe him. I've been a fan since (probably) the mid-80's when I saw him on some young comedians show when we first got cable. I say "some young comedians show" because at that time there were so many - but he definitely stood out, to me anyway.

Damn.

I agree with a lot of what you say, especially about finding a team fit, but I'm glad I have a job that I don't look at as "just a job, and that's all it'll ever be". I'm also happy that my job is at least a part of my identity and sense of satisfaction (not all, of course, that wouldn't be healthy). Like I've already discussed in this forum, when I retire in a few years I'm going to have to find a way to fill the void I'll probably feel as far as creative problem solving goes. Plus, some of the people I work with are among my best friends, who I've know since the late 80's. They'll still be around, but realistically, how much? But all this being said, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't do it for free!

But again, that's just me.

One of the things I really stress hard to my minions (including my mentorees who are often doing their practicum under my supervision) is a "Work to live, not live to work". That will increase your job satisfaction tremendously. A job exists solely to fund your life and your adventures therein.

I don't think I would want a job that I looked at as something solely to fund my life. While I don't "live to work", I definitely don't look at my job as nothing more than a paycheck. For the most part, I enjoy my job and the people I work with. Further more, if I don't do my job well, it can affect those people's jobs and lives - which, of course, is a lot of pressure, but which also gives me a lot of satisfaction. It probably helps that I work for a small company and not a large corporation.

As I have long said, I wouldn't mind being rich but I have absolutely no desire to be famous.

"Money is a tool. Fame is a drug."

That's a damn fine quote! And like most good quotes, it's fairly obvious without ever being articulated quite so well.
While anybody with a lick of common sense can see that it's true, I have to wonder how your days at MTV really drove this home for you. Perhaps seeing how fame affected some of the VJ's.
