I'm viewing my own forum profile inside the Ubuntu terminal...
I am the Matrix. I see only 1's and 0's now. And also apparently text in multiple colors.
Ubuntu is flipping wild with how much stuff I can do.

So what if Intel came out with some CPUs that used the "disabled iGPU" suffix (F) and the "low voltage mobile part" suffix (U) together?
Any ideas what those SKUs could be called?
(Maybe the i3-8121FU should have been called that? 😛)

This is why I make my purchases based on my needs, not my status. this is also the reason I am selling my desktop for a much lower spec lenovo laptop I got for $15:
I built my x99 machine back when I was wrapped up in this idea I needed a fast computer. You don't. I wasted a bunch of money I will never get back.
This is also why I believe 80% of PC upgrades people do both on and off this forum are total and complete Bullshit. Unless your game is running at 5FPS in low settings, you don't NEED new computer hardware, at all. What you have will work and if it doesn't work, it can be made to work. If trying to make it work still doesn't work then and ONLY then, do you have my permission to do a system upgrade.
I have said this before and I will say it again. The most almost any casual PC user will ever need to this day is a Core 2 quad with 8GB of RAM and a 120GB SSD. Any PC with specs higher than these for casual users is a waste of money.
By the way, even i'm not immune to these messages of propaganda. I am going to buy the LTX 2019 VIP tickets. Looking at that purchase from a totally rational standpoint, this is a waste of money.
There is a tough balance between saving and spending your money in the most effective ways you can. Yes, you DO need to use your money for fun, but how much fun exactly? Because the only three things we need are food, water and shelter. Everything beyond this could be examined as a "waste" of money since it's not needed. But I would argue my laptop really isn't a waste of money even if it doesn't fall into these three categories, since I can use it to communicate with people all over the world. something hard to nail down a price on.
We are all consumers. We all have our emotions played with. The important thing for you do to is to make sure you are buying the best product for YOU and nobody else. Make your decision based on facts, and ask yourself if you are being manipulated by the media or corporate propaganda.

Wow, can someone find a better features-to-price ratio on a case? (Too bad this one's out of stock, also when I clicked on it to open in a new tab it was priced at $179.60 and in stock.
(I was starting to look up what cases would be compatible with 13" wide EATX / SSI-EEB motherboards, support lots of hard drives, and not be overly expensive, among other things.)

The lack of SATA cables on my VS650 is actually starting to piss me off. Its only got the 2 on a lone cable, plus 1 on each of the molex chains which makes them bloody awkward to use. It should have just been sold as a 500W PSU with a higher operating temperature.

HUH?? Userbenchmark blacklisted my IP with activity code 19?? How does that happen?
There was one page I saw as I was tabbing through the duplicated tabs that said "click the green thing" or something like that, like it thought my activity was too fast - one of the things it mentioned was "not humanly possible" or something like that.
I was just trying to open a bunch of Chrome identities (using the multilogin extension) on usb.userbenchmark.com so I could compare specs on various sizes of USB! (4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512GB, 1, 2, 4TB.)
My sequence was right-click on the page, hit the keyboard shortcut for "duplicate page in new identity" ("D" on keyboard in my case), then ctrl+1 to get to the original tab (the leftmost tab in the window), and repeat several times. Testing it on LTT's site just now, I could only do it about 3x/second.
Right-clicking on the tab itself and duplicating tab, I can do it like 5-6x/second or so, but changing the settings in one tab affects others. (For example, if I look up 32GB Flash drives in one tab, then 128GB flash drives in another tab ... then when I go back to the first tab and change the sorting, it'll change it to 128GB flash drives.) I could also shift+click and duplicate a bunch of tabs at once, but the issue would still persist.
"Not humanly possible"?? My !!!
Also, middle-clicking down a list to open links in new tabs, I'm able to do it at like 3-4x a second on pcpartpicker, for example. (That site often gives me the "please prove you're not a robot" captcha.)
Then there's the issue of restoring a crashed (or saved then closed) browser session where I might have several hundred tabs open.
"Not humanly possible?" I say YES, humanly possible with the right tools.
Why must websites be stuck in the 1970s or 1980s when computers didn't support multitasking? Sometimes we want to be able to have multiple profiles / activities going on simultaneously.
Oh, and ... flagging for excessive activity or things like that??
Personally, I think sites should be designed to be able to handle the traffic. Lemme see if I can come up with a hypothetical example...
EVERY single person who has EVER heard of LTT decides to come all at the same time to access LTT's site, or Floatplane, or whatever. (Just not youtube or some other 3rd-party host.)
Each person is using a computer made up of multiple 42U server cabinets. EACH cabinet is dedicated to a specific component :
one cabinet is filled with Xeon Platinum 8180Ms or Epyc 7601s, another cabinet is filled with single-slot watercooled Titan Vs, another cabinet is filled with 128GB DDR4 LRDIMMs, another cabinet is filled with 750GB DC P4800X SSDs in Raid 0, another cabinet is filled with 40Gbps NICs (or whatever saturates PCIe 3.0 x16 bandwidth, times how many slots would physically fit), And any other necessary parts, like PSUs, etc, have their own separate cabinets. In case of a bottleneck in the system, more cabinets are added as necessary to remove said bottleneck.
They all go to access the SAME videos (however many would be needed so that their computing systems would be under a 100% stress load like you'd get if you checked all the boxes in Aida64, AND ran Prime95 Small FFT and FurMark at the same time) and other content.
If it was designed well enough, the LTT server wouldn't break any more of a sweat than the above-mentioned system would while booted to a Linux terminal with no GUI and no extra services running, just the bare minimum to boot.
Of course, I realize that no normal consumer currently has the multiple petabytes per second of internet access likely necessary to stretch that system's legs (or even have access to a system like that!), but I DO wish that websites were robust enough so that even a consumer with very deep pockets (like someone who owns a single 42U rack with a server) can't hit the limits of the website.
Wow this rant went on longer than I expected! Well, it's still staying as a status update for now. I don't think it's format warrants being a forum post, and I wouldn't know which forum to post it in anyway. (Programs, Apps and Websites? Off Topic? Networking?)
