If so, my bad and I apologize.

To be fair, though, sometimes it is hard to tell on this site.

So sick of these WOKE ass Social Justice Warrior developers having females fighting in World War II. It totally destroys the realism and immersion of the game.

It's set in the 1980s...in France...where the Vichy government still holds power.

But, please, do go on about how your fragile male ego is broken beyond repair about realism and immersion in a game that has nothing to do with the 1940s.

I heard the Kurt Russell film Soldier takes place in the same universe and time period as Blade Runner.

It does while Blade Runner also exists in the same universe as Alien. Which, when looking back, makes you wonder why the Colonial Marines weren't made up of the super soldiers from Soldier.

AG Barr can go fuck himself and die in a fire.

This tired, pathetic wail of "Think of the chiiiiiiiildreeen" when it comes to encryption is laughably juvenile. Encryption is, by design and definition, supposed to thwart third parties from accessing data that you, the encrypter, do not want want them to have. The best encryption standards are all open source anyway and the globe is not obligated to cow to the US' childish foot stomping and threats to hold their breath until they turn blue.

It takes just one crack in the dam to release the backdoor on the internet, then the encryption is useless. That crack can be poor security, a disgruntled federal employee, etc.

Correct. But in using open source encryption algorithms, the odds of a backdoor being "snuck in" are really low and, even should it happen, news of it is going to spread fast.

I have a Note 8 with a USB-C connector. It is very firm when plugged in and requires a bit of force to pull the cable out. Even after thousands of cycles of use.

with millions being made and tolerances varying some will have loose connections, it doesn't mean all usb-c are loose.
shit happens

That's a fair point. I was addressing just my phone but my other USB-C devices don't have the loose connection issues. However, tolerances are, well, tolerances. Also, one's person "loose" is another's "tight as Hell".

the second i get the compatibility and speed equivalent to windows 10, i switch immediately and never look back.

My Linux installs are faster than Windows 10 on its best day. I also have a massive amount of compatibility thanks to Proton. The VMs I have with PCI passthrough have 98% of the same speed as bare metal.

But, as in all things, your mileage may vary.

2. 6 HOURS Waiting To See This Historic Steam Train. Jul 23, 2019, 13:05 Burrito of Peace
 
Man, I would be pissed. I remember when 4449 rolled out after its complete restoration and return to Daylight colors, they cleared the lines for 150 miles so that people would be able to see it and get good shots of it.

Breathtaking engine. The British steam engine...not so much. If it was an A4 Mallard, it would have been awesome.

Linux doesn't spy on you, respects your freedom and privacy, and doesn't give a shit how many pieces of hardware you swap out. Also, it is free.

Can it run Crysis?

I know you are joking...but yes.

No central HVAC?
Not buying that house!
The newer efficient mini-split systems are the bomb. Heatpumps may need supplementing in real cold weather.

Oh, yeah, gotta agree there. I have two Mr. Slims. One in my office and one in the mini-DC.

But on a house that is four sides brick in Texas summer? Central HVAC that is overrated for the square footage. Even as extremely well insulated as it is, that brick retains and radiates heat for hours after the sun goes down. Keeping the interior walls cool and dry is a must to prevent mold and wall sweating. I love my Mr. Slims but they can't evap for shit compared to the central system.

So, he stopped taking shit home in 2006. Then he got hacked, and the material was tracked back to him, and that's how he got caught?

No, a different person, Nghia Pho, was hacked and that's how he was caught.


I am betting this cat was tracked by nothing more nefarious than network and/or server logs.
