Frontier prepares for bankruptcy, regrets failure to install enough fiber.

Took government money to build infrastructure, then didn't build infrastructure. Maybe they should be nationalized.

All ISPs should be nationalized. If you can get power, you can get fiber.

It was a true crime story with a look at a very dark slice of life.

I can see that any time I turn on the news, Dateline, 48 hours, or any other show of that kind.

I inferred nothing as I spoke only of the show itself and my reaction to watching it. I make no judgements on what people watch. There are, after all, Rick and Morty fans.

I have to agree with the sentiments others have expressed about Tiger King. It is a show about trash humans just being trash. I couldn't make it through the first episode nor do I really wish to push forward through it.

Linux users: just be happy with what "god" Linus Torvald gave you.

We are exquisitely happy, thank you.

Also, gaming is easy on Linux now with Steam, Steam Play, and Proton.

But you do you. If you wish to continue to be beholden to a faceless, monolithic corporation that treats you as the product and restricts your rights and freedoms, that's on you.

There's an equal number of people on the forums who are having no issues though. Including myself. And some of them run huge empires.

The guy who originally reported it fixed his issue...so I'm not sure what to tell you.

I have a save that has a huge empire, which previously had zero issues. 144FPS all day long. Now it's a slideshow. Same system, no changes.

I am very confident in ruling out a system side issue.

I think the hardest physical labor job I had was slinging cable in buildings under construction. In the middle of summer. In Texas. The first week I lost 10 pounds. The second week, I was down 27 pounds. I was drinking three gallons of water a day...literally and rarely urinating.

Hefting multiple dozens of 330ft of exterior Cat5 cable all day was definitely taxing.

However, I can see why working from home is exhausting for some people that are used to a traditional office environment. There is none of the little breaks people take for face to face socialization or getting up to go get a cup of coffee/tea/can of soda/water. Your kids are most likely stuck at home with you so you're trying to balance work and home at the same time and keep both going at least somewhat smoothly.

So it's just you, a monitor(s), endless work, and possibly screaming kids.

I would definitely find that exhausting as Hell.

I am sad to report that after today's update and Split Vendetta release that system performance has cratered whereas before I had zero issues. Newest drivers, yadda yadda yadda.

Every other game, including those heavily reliant on Vulkan like X4, run smooth as glass.

What kind of person calls 100,000-plus dead a ‘very good job’?
By comparison, about 3,000 people died in the Sept. 11 attacks and about 58,000 Americans died in Vietnam.

A narcissistic sociopath.

THANKS BOP, i snipped your shopping experience and forwarded it my my friends.
Remember when we used to eat at restaurants, boy was that fun.

That was my local HEB, that may not be widespread. Because positive, confirmed cases are increasing exponentially in my county, they may be taking things to a more seriously than what corporate guidelines are suggesting. Which, to be fair, are pretty damn good to begin with.

We went from 1, to 3, to 6 cases in the course of 7 days.

Agreed...and I would make hoarding at this time equal to a class C felony with the appropriate jail time. Max sentencing enforced.

Social distancing is working out perfectly for me. My long held attitude of "Fuck off, go away" finally has medical support acknowledging its sound nature.

Mrs. B is doing well with social distancing because she, like me, doesn't really want to deal with other people and their bullshit.

The longer this goes on, the happier I am with this particular facet. It has finally proven to the septuagenarian "leaders" above me that not only can I work from home but that I am more productive when doing so.

Went grocery shopping last Wednesday at HEB and it was an incredibly orderly affair. 70 people, max, were allowed in to the store at one time. You went in one side and out the other. As you exited, an employee radioed the person at the other side to let another person in. Your cart was sanitized before you went in and you were required to sanitize your hands before you entered. They squirted a copious amount in your hands and you had to complete it before being allowed in. All the checkout lines were open and you got in to special queues where you were assigned a checkout lane. You would go to that checkout lane when the person in front of you had fully cleared it and was about 10 feet away. Got pretty much everything I needed minus pinto beans and rice.

There were strictly and stringently enforcing limits on items. I saw some dumbass inbred redneck throwing a tantrum that he couldn't buy 5 packages of toilet paper...and he was promptly escorted out of the store by off-duty local cops.

More places need to be like HEB. They are beyond fantastically awesome. They are keeping their stores far better supplied than Albertons, Randall's/Tom Thumb, Walmart and other area grocery chains around here.

"Microsoft Processor Groups Offer Path For Scaling Beyond 64-thread Limitations."

Linux has had the ability to scale well beyond 64 threads for years now. Good of MS to finally catch up more than a decade later.

"3 tech advances that will change PCs forever."

5G: Yeah, let me know how that works out for people not living in the middle of downtown MegaCity with magical, unblocked line of sight connections.

Virtual Desktops: Again, Linux has had this ability for decades. Good of MS to finally catch up.

HMD: Hahahahahaha...no. Not until you broadly cure motion sickness, astigmatism, irregular facial geometry, lower the required specs to drive them exponentially, and settle on a standard which all manufacturers follow.

Batteries: Super capacitance, fast charging batteries will be here any day now. Any. Day. There were articles in the 70s in Popular Mechanics and Omni breathlessly discussing battery breakthroughs promising the same thing. In more than 40 years, the best advancement we have made is lithium ion. They're far better than lead acid or nickel cadmium, certainly, but they're a long way off from the promised breakthroughs.

Wearable PCs: People already have those, they're called "Smartphones". For most people, tablets and phones have surpassed traditional PCs in their usage.

I'll go outside and yell at some clouds now.

I bought the game off of Steam and I probably have several thousands hours in to both the original and Warband.

There were several mods that were must haves. One of which significantly increased the danger AI posed and another which made castle sieges a very perilous affair.

I think I ended up conquering the realms at least a dozen times for each game.
