I see a lot of influence from Protostar and Sundog in there.

There is a portion of me that wants to get on board with Linux, but the community has kept me away.

I think it depends on the community and where you're asking. For example, Archtards are notorious assholes and will just endlessly point you to the, at times, hilariously out of date Arch Wiki as if that solves all problems. I've tried pretty much every distro from the days of Slackware in the mid-90s to every major, modern distro there is. I generally find the Fedora people to be quite helpful and their IRC channel help is also really good from my own experience.

I don't know everything there is to know about Linux but I help out where I can and to the best of my ability, even here on BN. Most recently, I introduced Verno to PCI Passthrough so he could enjoy Linux and still play his Windows only based games.

So, I think community is what people make of it. The Linux Mint community is ridiculously friendly to newcomers, for example. I've seen whole posts written as a step by step guide to help other Mint users get some of the most esoteric hardware I've never heard about working under Mint.

Ugh, that Cyberpunk "commercial" was bullshit and that chick needs a gag.

Absolute "non-news" about Cyberpunk 2077.

2. Why Linux is better than Windows or macOS for security Feb 10, 2018, 14:30 Burrito of Peace
 
Brought to you by No-Shit Sherlock and Captain Obvious.

That is one of the many, many reasons I choose to use Linux. That and we get fixes much faster than Microsoft or Apple pushes out to their userbase. Also, free improvements to our favorite software for which we don't have to buy "versions" to receive.

Linux isn't for everyone, certainly, and that should be carefully considered.

How about going back to the Dark Crusade game mechanics and expand them. Instead of just one world, we go from world to world.

I hated what they did with DoW 2 and 3. I wonder how well DoW 1 and DoW:DC sold in comparison to 2 and 3.

Just finished watching the Cloverfield Paradox an hour ago. If I ever wondered what it felt like to have a jackhammer go at my nuts for an hour and forty two minutes...now I know. Holy hell was that absolutely excrebale!

Now, Altered Carbon on the other hand, that is a badass show. Binge watching the shit out of it between server migrations and it is phenomenal.

X Rebirth complete on the other hand is actually fun and nice to look at. Can't wait for X4.

I am a fan of the X series and, as I have said to you before, Rebirth is absolute and total dogshit. It is a fucking terrible game. If you're expecting X4 to be anything like Rebirth then I am very, very happy that you'll be disappointed.

I always enjoy the backblaze hdd failure rates, it's the nerd in me.

Likewise and, unsurprisingly, Seagate is the failure rate leader. This is, what, their third or fourth year in a row?

HGST FTW!

You ain't been properly cleaned out until you've eaten at GM Steakhouse on the drag (Guadalupe). {wink}

I luckily dodged that bullet. Had a co-worker at Dell come down with a terrible bout of food poisoning from eating at the Sixth and Lamar location (just after they moved off the Drag). Decided that was probably a place that I would want to skip!

After having eaten there a few times, I put Smash Burger in the category of "Trying too hard." They just couldn't figure out how to get "it", like Five Guys did.

Five Guys figured out how to give me diarrhea every time I ate there so I don't eat there anymore.

In-n-Out is awesome. Mighty Fine is pretty good while P Terry's is overrated garbage.

Best place I've ever had a burger was this little shack called "Backporch Burgers". They where phenomenal. Guy's name was Dave and he had a little flamebroiler that was tuned to perfection. His beef mix had veal in it. Each single patty was a pound and all his buns were baked by a local bakery and delivered each morning. He easily sold out by 2 each day. His wife was an absolute sweetheart who took orders, ran the cash register, served drinks, etc. Unfortunately, she was stricken with cancer and passed away at the ripe old age of 39. Backporch closed and never reopened.

I have to agree. I have a Note 8 and Bixby is terrible. I wish I could just fully uninstall it.

Oh this is just horseshit. Without Nolan Bushnell, we wouldn't be where we are today with either hardware or software. Revisionist history just needs to stop.

Is Snapple a thing outside of the NYC area?

Yup. As RedEye said, it's definitely here in Texas. I've also purchased it in Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennesee, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Oregon and in BC and Ontario, Canada.

Mrs. Burrito loves it so every time we stop for refreshments when gassing up, a bottle is purchased.

1. Apple whispers farewell to macOS Server. Jan 29, 2018, 11:51 Burrito of Peace
 
Good. It was an abysmal "server" OS. There was nothing it did that a *nix server couldn't do better with the exception of one thing: management of iThings.

5. How to Make Chili. Jan 28, 2018, 17:46 Burrito of Peace
 
"Calling a dish 'Texas Chili,' especially if you’re not a native of that state, is clearly asking for trouble."

Especially if you're a rube that forgets that all Texas-style chili has masa harina in it. If you're serious about it, you'll also get a chile brick from one of the chili queens in San Antonio and you'll slow cook that chili all day long in a 12" camp oven suspended from a tripod over an oak fire. If you're lucky enough to have heirloom cast iron passed down in your family and it's a Griswold, awesome. If not, a well seasoned and lovingly cared for Lodge will work just as well.

He's right in that beans are an apostasy. If you put beans in your pot, you have not succeeded in making chili but you have succeeded in making bean soup. You also don't put chicken, turkey, or any other kind of white meat in the pot. That's heresy and heresy is purged with flame. Beef or bison. Bison you'll need to find a fat source to add to the pot but it's a damn fine meat. If you're fortunate enough to have an HEB, I've never seen one that doesn't sell it from the butcher and it's always grass fed.

If you want to argue, just know up front that you are wrong, and you can sit there in your wrongness.

Blown cell in the battery. Recently happened on my Lightning. Swap it out, problem solved.
