  1. The fact that people who put almonds in cookies are allowed to vote is terrifying.

      As a victim of the marginalized pineapple on pizza-kin, this post offends me

      @STRMfrmXMN I love pineapple on pizza. But I don't bake other people pizza, then hide pineapples inside of it where you can't see it on the top and serve these unsuspecting fools "regular pizza" like "chocolate chip cookies"

  2. I haven't been here in a while

  4. New from nintendo a Switch that doesn't switch for the price difference of a dock. 

    Take all those cool features of the joycon like hd rumble and motion controls and throw them away, because developers wont rely on something without a full attach rate- you'd have to set this thing on a table to use joycons that way. 

    But is it avaible in that awesome neon blue or red that's on the joycons, you ask? No, dull turquoise.

  8. jets have been hauling ass above my house for about 30 minutes now. I live next to an airport but I rarely hear this kinda noise. Just watched a couple of them move in formation. Shaking my house XD 

    Never seen them stick around so long though, seem to be circling and I can hear them on the other end, so not a wide path. Wonder whats up

    Is this fucking real? 

    1000$ to rotate/tilt a screen?

    I've also read that they offer a simple vesa adapter for $200

    No fucking way this is real this has to be satire

      Unless their vesa adapter has it's own way of mounting to their stand, then you'd need to somehow rig it up to the stand of your choosing.

      Hopefully that's not the case.

      > Unless their vesa adapter has it's own way of mounting to their stand, then you'd need to somehow rig it up to the stand of your choosing.

       

      you mean Apple's display, or the studio/end-user's mounting equipment? o_o

    4. lewdicrous

      lewdicrous

      Mounting between the vesa adapter from apple and the end user's equipment.

       

      Addition:

      If the vesa size on their display is standard then you can just buy an off the shelf vesa mount.

      If it's not standard, but can fit on any mount, then you can just buy the adapter and use any mount you want*.

      If the adapter won't fit on any mount, then you might need to buy what apple offers until someone makes their own version.

       

      *As long as they fit together, if not, then maybe you can 3d print an adater that goes between your mount and their vesa adapter.

      so I send a ticket, and I get no automated response with my fucking ticket id so that's great. From my memory it takes weeks to get an automated reply, then your reply to that and wait weeks to get a human reply. And I can't even get a ticket submitted in the first place I guess.

    Burned for a good 25-30 seconds walking around before they got to him, I'm not sure they did him any favors by putting him out might die anyway and more slowly.

      Sounds fun, guess the guy hated life. Not sure what you prove by killing yourself by lighting yourself on fire though.

      you prove that you're flammable.

  15. Theres a commercial for I think a mouse that didn't need a dongle, like 2011-2012 or so maybe, and it's a bunch of people in a meeting looking for a dongle. I cannot find it anywhere, anyone know what product it was or anything about it. I remember the line "I think dewey has a dongle"

    Paypal credit only allows me to pay minimum or entire balance with auto pay. That really pisses me off, because I want to autopay triple the minimum, like I can anywhere else. I often don't remember to make payments always, so I basically have to set it up for the minimum and throw in extra payments when I remember. It's designed to make it as difficult as possible to pay it off in a managed way, they want you to never pay it off. No custom auto pay really pisses me off, with how smooth their site is it's obviously intentional. 
    You got a million cards, all of them allow you to custom auto pay right? My c1 venture does. 

    1. AluminiumTech

      AluminiumTech

      Yeah, my 2 credit cards get automatically paid off every month and I have the option to pay off however much I want.

  17. can the news stop using "dramatic" for like video of shootings and shit? 

    1. handymanshandle

      handymanshandle

      Buzzwords sell and get clicks. Being straight about the story doesn't.

    2. Syntaxvgm

      Syntaxvgm

      Yah I don't like the entire tone, but words like "shocking" aren't as bad as "dramatic" because the second sounds like it's trying to sell me on entertainment. 

  18. why do new glasses come with sawdust and fingerprints all over them? Do I have to pay extra for them not to do that?

      I had to like look it up I kinda wasn't watching as was like what? really? 

  20. One of my cherry trees has started to bloom, but not the others. I guess instead of about 2 weeks I normally get where these trees don't look like shit I'll have about a week of nice cherry blossoms. 

     

    Contrary to weebist beliefs, they are really ugly trees 90% of the time. Wish they were pink more, can Monsanto get on that please? 

  21. logitech is the only one that consistently makes mouse software, both gaming and regular use, that while looking functional and friendly by the interface, is actually unreliable trash under the hood. Macro keys get overwritten or just stop working all together eventually, always. And with synergy, forget about it. It will literally fuck up other programs by sending some oddball keystrokes that you didn't want. It's like the program itself doesn't have key rollover.

      Don’t worry, going Corsair wouldn’t make it any better. For some reason iCUE and the Corsair services eat up a lot of RAM from what I remember.

      I will never forgive iCue for:

      1. Not working under RDP

      2. Not working when you lock your computer.

      I think that's the one I haven't messed with. I mean ffs even the cheap chinese mice come with decent software.

  23. After a windows update, Microsoft thought it would be funny to set EVERY RECORDING DEVICE on 2 of my pcs to "telephone quality"

    image.png.536a5f5eb2081d78fe6265fe1dbdffd3.png

    Fuck you assholes I lost 12 hours of work because of this. Sounded like I was in a tube, and I couldn't figure out why. Thought it was a cord or my mixer, switched to a usb at2020. Then moved pcs and it still happened. Hell on one it set voicemeter and it's virtual interface to telephone quality!
