    oh my god my friend is sooooo stupid
     
    him: the flu vaccine works by giving you a strand of the flu, right?
    me: i guess, idk
    him: well that’s how it works
    me: oh okay cool
    him: so doesn’t that mean that if i go off and have sex with someone with aids, but don’t go all the way in, then i will get a slight strand and lose it soon and be immune??
    me: i don’t think that’s how it works
    him: it is, it’s logical
    me: logic isn’t always right
    him: it is this time
    me: not really
     
    fast forwards a few weeks, he comes onto discord saying he has aids

    I can understand not having any sort of functional save feature in your game so every time you reinstall or switch phones you start over - with some games that isn't really a bad thing at all - and I can understand having microtransactions in a free game as well - I basically expect it - but when you combine those two together, who do you think is going to have balls big enough (or rather a brain small enough) to actually "invest" anything when you've done absolutely nothing to inspire confidence that the purchase will actually be remembered, and in fact done quite a bit to suggest that it won't be?

    Quote from Raja from Asus: 

    Well-engineered boards usually manage to constrain overshoot to a few uS. When overclocked, cheaper boards can breach specified overshoot tolerances in both magnitude and duration. How much impact that has on processor degradation is dependent on a number of factors, such as the type of workload the system is frequently exposed to. These guidelines exist so that stock specifications can be defined for warranty purposes and to encourage vendors to adequately design the power solution for the intended task. Given the user cannot measure the magnitude of the spike, it’s prudent to use an LCC level that sits towards the upper middle of the available options, especially if you’re using a cheaper motherboard. The highest LLC levels (least droop) is usually set to satisfy users that think voltage should ‘not move’ under load (sad but true). Those levels aren’t necessarily ‘sound’ from an engineering viewpoint.

    I got a massive bin of drives from work to melt down the chassis' on, to cast into blanks to turn on the lathe. Anyone need some magnets?

    Why are Android "skins" called "skins" at all?  To me, "skin" is interchangeable with "theme" and is (pardon the pun) only skin deep - a visual alteration with no functional difference.  Android "skins" however are, from what I can tell, the same idea as what's known as a "desktop environment" on Linux - a complete experience, including a unique GUI, unique features and functions, and a whole suite of applications designed to work with it.
