    I'm recording a band this weekend, and today, the first day of recording, I managed to piss off the drummer do badly I might have to stand in for him.
     
    He started off by refusing to play live with the band, and then he wanted me to pocket all the tracks he recorded. I refused by saying that I might as well use a drum machine, and his response was to leave.

    Another year, another family gathering and yet another dinner spend at the kid's table.

    Back from Japan! I already miss it so, so much.
    Fantastic country that I can highly recommend to anyone. It really has something for everyone. Very friendly people, very clean streets, lots and lots of things to do, fantastic food, etc.
     
    I only have 3 bad things to say about the country.
    Their toilet paper was terrible. Extremely thin and disintegrated as soon as liquid touched it. A lot of restrooms did not have any way to dry your hands after washing them. Most had air dryers (really good ones at that, the Dyson AirBlade type) but a large portion expected you to have your own handkerchief with you and dry yourself on that. Their tap-water had a faint taste of chlorine. It was barely noticeable, and the levels of chlorine in the water is very small to the point where it is not a health risk (tap water in Japan is very heavily controlled and safe to drink) but it still didn't taste as good and clean as it does in Sweden.

    Just checked Windows update and I still have not received the October update. Not sure if I should feel blessed or cursed.
    My guess is that I have something Microsoft has flagged as incompatible with the update, like they did to some Intel GPU drivers.
     
    My question is, why not display the reason for not getting the update? They clearly have a tool which scans the system for things and if it detects certain things the update doesn't get downloaded. All they have to do is print a snippet of text with the conflict they found. But nope, instead users are kept in the dark and have to guess why they may not be getting updates.

    a while back i had this quite overcomplicated idea to switch from (hilareously price) l'oreal hair products to something more budget-minded, thats basicly the same thing "on the box", and then relate the difference in experience to computer parts with different prictags that essentially say the same thing on the box..
     
    because some unfortunate timing between the shampoo bottle volume and the hairdresser's annual vacantion i had to switch to something from the supermarket..
     
    now, my hairdresser only takes 3 weeks off, so we're not talking lots of hair washing.. i got trough two brands in that little time because they were that disappointing.. first shower with a fresh bottle of l'oreal.. ITS FUCKING WORTH IT...
     
    yes the bottles are freaking expensive, but if the cheaper bottle means you have to wash your hair twice as much with 3 times the amount of shampoo.. that earns back quickly, both in performance per dollar and in time saved.

    i just heard a very viable reason for not allowing transgenders in professional sports:
     
    - taking hormones is a full stop ban in professional sports, for everyone.
    - transgenders require hormones during their transitioning.
     
    i know it's unpopular opinion, but at least admit this is hard to argue against.

    so.. nzxt made a power supply that lets you monitor wattage on the 12 volt rail...
    which IMO is the least interesting rail to monitor. 
    two facts about the 12 volt rail:
    - you expect the voltage to be rock solid in any decent power supply.
    - its available wattage suffices, because its the decisive factor in choosing a power supply.
     
    here's more intreresting stuff to monitor:
    - the 5 volt rail power draw (because USB)
    - the input voltage
    - stability of input power
    - input wattage ('from the wall')
    - power consumption figures over time
    - those figures combined with a configurable dollar amount.
     
    if nzxt can give me that i'll bother, otherwise no thanks.
