  1. Agree. I'm like the one of two gals in the IT where I work. Our male co-workers have no issue with us nor us with them. Really wonder what these chaps are waving pitch forks for at times. At most, they making it worst, not better with these policies they are pushing. Heck, when working on my CS, there just not many females going for it nor interested in it. Most either go into medical degrees, finance degrees, social worker or teachers (at the university I was at). Think there was at max three gals out of like 15-30 students depending on the classes. Even less in the programming classes.

    Linux Gaming FINALLY Doesn't SUCK!

    Understatement of the year..... Freaking understatement of the year. As a sys admin on both Windows and Linux. Blasted Windows loves to break in the wackest of ways. Got to love when two applications break each other because of a Windows Update is applied and makes it hang a thread full peg to 100%. Or, the lovely of lovely black screen with just the mouse cursor being the latest one on W10 or the breaking of multi monitor setups. O what joy I had..... While over on the Linux system, users complain about console being weird.....sees the system warning in application on reason. Point to track range.....um, you do realize that you have that set to 70,000 to 7,000. Negative range ain't going to work. I actually get bored at work on the Linux system since it rarely breaks (I kid not, I have gone days of eight hour shifts of not troubleshooting because nothing breaks). At most, I have to resolder comm cords because the students manage to mess them up.
  3. Florida here as well. Just my electric bill is stupid high atm from the A/C. Along with, well, three rigs in one room on 2nd floor gets mighty toasty along with being hungery buggers. I have no issue with the heat, its my electric bill that is no fun if I dare fire them up currently.

    Why releasing classic consoles is wrong.

    Same here. Never owned the original consoles like the NES, SNES, PS1 (had relatives that had them, so played on those). So, to me, the mini SNES classic is a nice way to legally play the games. Also, still own a Gamecube as well. Though, if Nintendo can make a smaller version and have it pre-loaded with some good games, I probably nab it. What is great about these new mini ones is the size. Makes it easy to pack and have a game system down range to play on during the few free time one gets. Along with not having to worry about where the carts or disc run off to. Though, be major dope if they setup to load extra games onto them legally.
  5. Congrats. Still hot weather where I'm at. Ugh, can't wait for cool weather to show up so I can fire back up to 24/7.

    Is it considered weird to wear headphones in public?

    College or work?

    Most of IT jobs I know of is sitting at a desk (there are ones though where you can travel from site to site). But, I understand that feel. Previous aircraft mech myself, love to use my hands and work, but god.....the damage my back took from that (still dealing with pain on occasions - I'm not even 30 yet....). Now, entry level system analyst sitting in an A/C room at a desk. It is boring at times for sure, but I take this over beating the crap out of my body (plus, the pay not bad for entry level system analyst). I agree along similar lines. I did not go straight into college (even though I had teachers and one of my grandfathers wanting me too). Went military first where one better learn good work ethic. Good thing though, one of the benefits from the military covered my degree cost, so not debt floating over my head when I went later on for my degree.

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Yeah, the new movies are not cheap on that format. But darn, they look so good on a good 4K HDR TV. Just got Infinity Wars myself on a UHD disc. Anyway, some goodies I got this past week or so. Went clearance snooping with my Aunt. Lucked on a nice mouse and a steal on some Prismacolor markers (these things are not cheap at regular price). Instead of the usually seven bucks a pop, the mark down at the counter was a one buck and 97 cents. Can't complain about that. So far, the mouse working pretty well and the lightspeed hookup is working with my Mint Mate OS on my computer. Also, nabbed some cables for one of my PSUs off a chap here on the forums. Plus, did some research for a drive so I can read data off 4K HDR UHD discs. Now, just have to setup so I can firmware flash it, and I will be good to go. Now, to hope for some deals on some big TB drives in a few months.

    Yeah, there are others. I usually don't go out my way to look at those sites. But damn when I seen some of the stuff posted from there, I'm like, what the hell are these folks on.

    Ideas about my career path

    Ouch. Yeah, those Cisco tests are not something to take lightly. Bad enough I only had two weeks to study for the CompTIA Sec+ test (no previous certs). Though, saw the CISSP study book one Sarg was studying for (he was retiring and going into InfoSec field). Mother of god....that book was big.

    Ideas about my career path

    Yep, definitely vouch on the Cisco certs. Though, fair warning to the OP. Those tests are no joke. Makes the CompTIA Sec+ I took look like a walk in the park.

    What song are you listening to right now.

    Fair warning, wacky German video. But, darn their songs are catchy.
