  1. You can use selenium, a browser automation tool. You'll need to know Python to use it. Try Splinter.
  2. hedds up, this still appears https://i.imgur.com/MBLUpjt.png
  3. These criticisms are valid for all truly wireless earbuds. The battery isn't going to kill itself in a year under normal circumstances. Just because it's small doesn't mean it won't last. One ear getting softer? How would that happen? Normal earbuds don't do that, why would these?
  4. The Liberty 2s seem pretty cool and I really want to give them a go, but I'm disappointed that I'm not getting the full-fat critical review from LTT.
  5. Yeah but you can take one out and put it in the case. A lot of truly wireless earbuds let you do that. I loathe Apple for removing the 3.5mm jack, but they did give the others the push they needed towards truly wireless earbuds, because I just tested out the Jabra Elite 65t, the new Galaxy Buds, and Airpods, and I gotta say, truly wireless is a really good experience. I don't have to untangle or unwrap any cords, I can just whip out my buds and they're already playing music. Plus, they're more secure in my ears since there's no wire weight pulling the earbuds out. I don't know what you're wearing, but even with an ear hook, I can't wear only one earbud at a time or it'll fall out from the wire weight.
  6. Some ideas include: The on switch is wired to a car starter but the keys are missing so you have to pick the lock to start the computer There's a USB stick glued into the back with a gentoo installer on it the graphics card only has s-video out someone spilled coffee on the keyboard. all the keys still work, it just feels crumchy is all. There's no fan on the cpu cooler so you have to blow on it manually the mouse has a tilt switch so it only works when it's upside down Opponents would then have to complete certain tasks, such as watching a youtube video or writing and printing a letter, and obviously there would be a rule that the choice of components or modifications could not make completing these tasks impossible, at least in theory. do it, linux. you know you wanna
  7. Oh my god. All acrylic. You and your friend are insane.
  8. Mind me asking what the price was on that custom sheet-metal job? I was going to make a case out of 3D printed plastic, since I can do that at home, but if the cost isn't insane, some metal parts would be nice.
  9. Kung Fury (YT) mentions 3M also has its Fluorinert line of liquids, and there are other companies that have two-phase liquids for this application: Engineered Fluids and Cargille-Labs
  10. Guess the liquid! Hints: It's not 3M Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid. According to Roman, he wants something with a different boiling point, for more headroom when overclocking. Also, according to Ben Tec (YT) Novec can't be sold to consumers. Since he can't sell a Novec-filled product to people, he found a different fluid.
  11. I use the Roomba 980 to clean the low-pile carpet of my office. It's totally worth the money if you: Are willing to clean large objects off the floor and prepare it for vacuuming by moving furniture and stuff so that the robot doesn't get stuck. Wires won't work with it. (Our office prepares by closing the doors to rooms with problem surfaces, such as book-sized objects on the floor, wires, tubes, the bathroom... Buying extra light barriers made this easier.) Have mostly low-pile carpet across a single level of the building (it can handle all surfaces but it works most efficiently on stiff, low-pile carpet) Don't have a butt-ton of pet hair or similar stuff on the floor Have the money for it On the stiff, low-pile office carpet, this thing cleans better than a commercial Oreck XL. No joke, it pulled out all the dust that the Oreck has been missing for the past three years. The path-finding is pretty good, since it has a camera on board for tracking where it is and where it needs to go, so it's not ping-ponging off furniture like the last-gen stuff. It's pretty darn good at getting itself back to base, assuming it already knows the layout of your floor and it hasn't trapped itself. Emptying the bin is pretty simple, so long as you're fine with a little dust on your hands. It's not totally sealed like higher-end vacuum bags, but it's easy to deal with, since the bin is pretty small and has a large opening after you pop the cap on it. It's more pleasant than emptying a Dyson canister, which in my experience always has a dust bunny all the way at the top of the canister, where I can't fit my hand. Downsides? This thing is really loud. It cleans almost as well as a normal vacuum while sounding almost as loud as a normal vacuum. I also wish Roomba made the battery user-replaceable, since the high duty cycle of this model will make for a short-lived battery, but that's just speculation on my part. Lastly, like all roombas, the actual vacuum part of the roomba is surrounded by about an inch of wheel and plastic on each side. There's a spinny brush thing that will brush along the baseboards (and wear away with time so it needs to be replaced) but it does jack all. So the last inch around your walls aren't really being vacuumed. These are pretty darn small gripes, but then again, you're paying a premium for that. It was easy to justify this purchase for an office, as it allows the staff to do less cleaning, and time is money, but I doubt you would justify the price for home use, unless the layout of your home is uber roomba-friendly.
  12. I would love to hear John chime in on this in the WAN show, because there's gotta be some legal insanity going on here.

In 2011, Lundgren ordered $80,000 worth of re-printed Windows recovery disks from China. These were intercepted by US Customs and Border protection. It is reported that these are restore disks, which do not come with a product key or license and cannot be used to activate Windows. Therefore, these disks should be nearly worthless, as an installation/restore disk can be made free of cost with a utility provided by Microsoft. However, as many forum members have noted, it is against Microsoft's terms of use to redistribute this software. Note that currently being reported is that a US appeals court upheld a district judge's ruling. This is an appeal, not the original conviction or sentencing. Qyotes: My favorite:
