What I love is the mug shots of politicians who almost without exception, smile. Yeah, like you are happy in that moment...

it kinda sucks because now there are no brick and mortar local stores that carry DIY crap like resistors and capacitors and wires and all that shit
Fry's has that stuff, but they have a lot fewer locations. Nearest one to me is over 100 miles away and I live in a town of over 100k.

Ha! -- just bought a cable at a RadioShack a few weeks ago when I didn't feel like waiting for one to ship to me. I was a bit surprised they were still there. I wonder if the store I purchased from will survive...

It sucks but there is no other choice for gaming. With that said be sure and read this recent tidbit: Security Analyst Concludes Windows 10 Enterprise "Tracks Too Much"
I don't want to hijack the topic into a bitchfest about Win10, but yeah it sucks. Basically Microsoft won. They've done something we shouldn't have allowed but we failed to complain loudly enough to stop them. Unfortunately any argument about it at this point, is moot.

  • Home and Professional users are much worse off due to limitations of some settings and lack of an IT staff. Iím not going to bother with captures from those systems, this has already been shared by many others. Spoiler: itís bad.
  • As I understand it, and please tell me if I am wrong, there really isn't any other practical choice. From what I can tell even if you could get an Enterprise version -- which you pointed out still needs "corrections" -- there is a significant annual fee. So, it's pretty much Win10 Pro, or the other insane choice, go Mac. Which frankly, is even less palatable to me than Win10.

    Saw the Factorio guys announce they passed 1 million units in sales. Far less than it should be, can't believe more people aren't playing Factorio.

    Good luck JD, hopefully you can resurrect the PC.

    I'm past due for an update myself -- but my objections to Win10 (whether or not they are valid) so limits my choices that I have been delaying...

    Hey, he gets points for not taking himself too seriously, a seemingly frequent problem for the Hollywood crowd. Ben's film career has been a real roller coaster -- a surprising high (IMHO) was "The Accountant" which was far better than I ever expected it to be.

    Turns out that the French are good for something else besides fries.
    Well, duh: Kissing!
    Cleaner than hand shakes, right? Shaking hands spreads more germs than kissing

    Yes, I realized it was staged, a recorded audio, and no actual harm. That wasn't my question. It is the job of actors to "seem real". I was wondering if the text indicated, "Actors, not actual pedestrians" or something to that affect.

    I do have to say if I was crossing the intersection against the light when I had checked and there was no traffic I wouldn't be happy if the audio startled me...

    So, anyone know French well enough to tell us if those were actors or actual innocent French citizens getting the shit scared out of them?

    I can tell Google right now how well their ads work on me, the answer is "They don't." The reason they don't work, is because I'm not an idiot, therefore I am using an ad blocker and I never see their ads.

    Summer hasn't started, summer is already here. 106F with the heat index today. 107 or 108 tomorrow.
    Woof! Southwest I assume? Midwest is definitely warming up, breaking 80 today but dipping back down after today.

    Did I miss a tax issue for Zuckerberg? As far as I know he paid 100s of millions of taxes when he exercised his Facebook stock options.

    I can't explain in words how much it hurts me to have to pay Comcast for my Internet connectivity. If the dawdling local fiber build out ever completes, I have to think Comcast will become persona non grata in town...

    I highly doubt "Alien: Covenant" is worth the price of admission to see it in the theater. It seems to clearly be a "wait until it hits the movie channels" film. I'm not sure if even people I generally trust on movie reviews could sway my opinion about this, which is actually a bit disappointing because I like Fassbender.

    On the "Demolition oops" I suspect even though it was unintentional, the crew did the owners a favor. That came down so easily there must have been a serious deficiency of some kind and a similar failure was probably bound to happen sooner or later...

    The entire microbial system employed by us (and other living creatures) is both fascinating and more than a little distrubing/creepy/something. When I have read about it I find it interesting but also end up feeling a bit unclean.

    Hilarious -- the Senators criticize the treatment of the reporters but not the gutting of the regulations which protect every citizen. Nice distraction tactics...
