Re: Cryptocurrency?

"buy bitcoin with credit card" has been trending on google, which is about all you need to know. IIRC CHC had purchased a butterflylabs miner a couple years ago. I ran a gpu miner for a few weeks on the radeon 5770 in my mac pro and could have made enough after the fees and everything to b...

Re: FS: It's trackball time! (Logitech Marble FX x2, Ergo MX x1)

Sounds like your bog-standard "cheap smps coil whine" to me. Short of potting the chokes in epoxy there isn't much you can do about it. No idea what sort of mayhem *that* might cause. Anyways, I may be interested in the trackmans. How does scrolling work in windows 10? Hold down the red bu...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

I absolutely agree with everything you just said. But it still takes two to tango, as they say. Carlo's also emailed me a couple times but only to the throwaway address registered here (I switched to google a couple years ago as the spam became overwhelming) "what do you think of..." and &...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

You didn't miss much. ivelegacy basically got in a fight with unix. From what I saw both parties were equally guilty, and they are both on my foes list now. ivelegacy said some impolite things about unix, I guess over some transaction involving hardware (???) then unix threatened basically the EU eq...

Re: How to measure time?

Anyone tried the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45? Intel chip, OLED screen, I think their 25 hour battery life claim is.... optimistic. IDK why you wouldn't buy an applewatch instead of this cheesy knockoff unless you really hate apple. As an aside, my garmin will record continuously for longer than ...

Re: Your most prized hardware

Like most grown-ups I use IT equipment as a means to an end, rather than the end itself. I guess my laptop? Tho if it broke down i would just buy a new one. Barely 6 months old and there is already a new model out :o However some of the amiibos in my collection were quite expensive. I wouldn't say '...

Re: Some 3D work in MAX

I see you're lusting after the larger Focal units. I would personally far prefer building my own speakers than using someone else's (it would bring me far more joy!) I built my own 3-way loudspeakers many years ago, using Focal woofer and midrange, and Morel tweeters. Still sound great, running wit...

Re: The Problem with Apple

The reason why apple stopped offering user-replaceable batteries is because (a) you had to remember to swap them out of the machine to keep them both charged up, AFAIK they never offered a standalone charger, (b) at some point laptop batteries lasted long enough for a flight/workday/movie session to...

Re: Garbage

No, pretty much any phone other than say a kyocera or panasonic toughpad it is fairly easy to crack the screen. If the digitizer is broken to the point where the electrical connection is lost, it won't work anymore. My iphone already has a small crack in the bottom (not over the screen itself) no id...

Re: and now for something completely different !

I feel bad, I JUST blew away the window 7 partition (ok, I broke it accidentally back in october :oops: ) and let Debian have the whole disk on my x220. Finally getting it all set up the way I like it. If you had posted about this a few weeks ago I would have been all over it. But it is hard to argu...

Re: The Problem with Apple

But your argument is invalidated because a base OS is relatively useless by itself. This is one of my biggest issues I had switching away from the mac, actually. The built in Mail, Safari, Calendar, Contacts, in OS X (MacOS) are all very, very, good. It was difficult to find decent replacements to ...

Re: The Problem with Apple

just to add - it's not about eye candy to me, user experience includes the little things - like how well do gestures work, how easily can you make selections, does the thing cope well when used with a wacom instead of a mouse, how does the scrolling behave, are GUI elements consistently placed and ...
