    someone mentioned they were supposedly very quiet fans, and i agree they are indeed very quiet... because they barely move any air.

    so.. heres a reason to both be less scared of AI, and more scared of AI:
     
    stuff like google using gathered data to recommend you stuff that you may like, like with youtube recommended videos, because it "knows" all your preferences.
     
    mindblowing fact for you: AI has no idea. the only reason why AI recommendations would work perfectly for you, is because you have very mainstream interests, because it can only base itself off of links it has already connected. (as in, someone else who watched the same videos as you, also watched this one, so therefore you will like it too) since the links you make may not be the same as those someone else makes, this is incredibly flawed. and ofcourse the AI has no idea of *why* you may have watched a video.
     
    protip if you want to REALLY upset youtube algorithm..
    watch this video;
    it is a long format video of a very specific interest, you may watch it with very different intent, but the algorithm doesnt know that, so it assumes you must REALLY like cheese. the algorithm doesnt understand human things like watching something with other intent, like watching thunderdome '98 to laugh at the people, so as a result will assume you like watching this stuff in general.
     
    as a result, there's less reason to be scared of AI, because in truth it is a completely unaware formula trying to approximate by comparing you to others like you.
     
    but as a result, there's more reason to be scared, because if we then start to see the output of these tools as a "truth", it generates more false positives than it does perfect matches. it cannot distinguish a possible terrorist from a science professor looking into fun experiments for the classroom, and when it starts to assume traits based on these "false matches" you end with a ban of ice cream because statistics show that it causes people to drown in swimming pools.

    because it's become habit i'm making a list of things that broke. since i'm not feeling up for digging everything up, but here's at least the stuff that's in my face:
    - GPU drivers
    - sound drivers
    - network drivers
    - wallpaper
    - it didnt fix my bluetooth driver
    - all my software is magically instaled today, making sort by date once again useless.
    - language settings are fucked; again...

    so.. the samsung foldable phone... i know who their target audience is for that:
     
    a mobile power user who regularly cycles out their smartphone and tablet, to stay at the cutting edge of technology, and can see the expense as a business decision. (for example, having your representatives or a consultant run around with the latest and greatest tech implies that business is running well.)
     
    so.. in a sense, samsung made a device that will only be bought by absolute tech addicts, and businessmen, and in this way keep demand low enough to make screen production for a foldable device reasonable.

    came to the additional realisation, in the 20 years we had that yacht, we never once changed the spark plugs, and we never did any engine electrics testing. not that an 80s scania engine had much electrics to it..

    more pointless pondering:
     
    the hardware i chose for my NAS build ran into a snag where the motherboard manufacturer (asrock) claims that it supports 16GB RAM, whereas the cpu that's soldered onto it according to intel only supports 8GB RAM...
     
    dont wanna risk the issues, so i'm looking into some other options.. the ryzen 2200G seems like a pretty decent call, as does the intel i3 8100..
     
    came to mind, my main system is 4 years old now, and i havent done my "annual upgrade" yet this year.. (besides new peripherals, but that was LONG overdue..)
     
    does anyone want to see me squeeze a full size ATX board into a tiny 1u chassis, and cool a 4790k with a 1u cooler?
     
    i guess i could underclock the processor to save on heat.. and with one upgrade i'll boost my main rig, and get the dopest AF 1U sleeper ever..  (or rather, 1U alarm clock because fan noise)
     
    i mean, i've as much as decided that i'll be cutting away all internal structure in the chassis anyways, i may as well go full out, and squeeze in a main rig upgrade in the process.. my main rig kinda needs the upgrade and a reinstall anyways, since windows update is only half-borked.

    so.. on the topic of pointless pondering..
     
    NAS build, i've sorta figured out my drive choice, partially motivated due to availability and the hardware i ended up choosing...
     
    comes to one last tiny detail... cooling.
     
    - "xilence white box series" fans, €1.99 a piece, and use A LOT of them because about 1 in 4 will end up a dud.
    - fractal design silent series, €7.99 a piece
    - noctua fans, €17.99 a piece, and be guaranteed they'll last longer than planet earth.
     
    in other words:
    - cheapest of the cheapest, and probably having to buy a few spares
    - decent option for 4x the price
    - best of the best, for 9x the price.
     
    EDIT: should note, the noctua's come with a bunch of accessories i can actually use..
     
    the problem here.. is that i intend to use "at least" 8 fans, and this is more or less a budget build..
    (also, this comparison really isnt an advertisement for noctua price/performance wise..)
