    Nowak got a reaction from wkdpaul in COVID-19 - READ THE RULES BEFORE REPLYING   
    COVID cases are on the rise by something like 59% in Massachusetts and governor Baker is still going ahead with the next phase of reopening. Absolutely irresponsible.

    Nowak got a reaction from pm128 in If Chrome became a $5/month subscription, would you pay for it?   
    There's a reason why Opera dropped the "pay for the full browser!" model in 2005.
     
    Nobody wants to pay for a browser.

    Don't forget tho that you should be proud of who you are, considering how much damage government and religion (in particular, religion) has done to us. The fact that we exist as we are stands in defiance of that.

    Nowak got a reaction from Eschew in United States. Tell me the pride of your state.   
    Massachusetts. Rather expensive, but at least the sales tax is decent at 6.25%.
     
    We had the original Silicon Valley. A lot of things we use every day, including the microwave and telephone, were invented here. The internet was made public here, in 1989. We've got Boston, a major political and economic powerhouse for the northeast. We have the highest educational standards in the country. Everyone knows us for our accents, JFK and Boston, really. If I hear "pahk the cah in Hahvahd Yahd" one more time-

    Nowak got a reaction from cj09beira in Nintendo might have just quietly killed off the DS line   
    3DS was cheaper than the Switch by almost $200 near the end of its life. Nintendo probably kept it alive for so long as a "budget" alternative to the Switch.
     
    However, it seems they want to focus on the Switch entirely, rather than dividing manufacturing lines between the aging 3DS and the newer Switch/Lite.

    Nowak got a reaction from ARikozuM in TikTok is officially banned in United States, WeChat is getting banned soon (UPDATED)   
    So TikTok is a national security threat because it collects data from you but not Google, Facebook, Microsoft, et all, which collect far more data about you individually.
     
    Guess it's okay if they're based in the good ol' US of A!

    "hugely exaggerated science" isn't a thing. As the virus progressed and virologists and other doctors learned about transmission paths and other things, recommended steps have changed slightly. There are people still not doing the most basic of things like wearing masks when necessary and social distancing, even though those are well-established protocols at this point. I poo-poo'd some of it in the beginning, but I can admit I was wrong in my view many months back.
     
    Yes, people are suffering badly, I have friends that are in very bad shape mentally because they've gone hard in terms of cleaning things and distancing themselves from the world. I've seen/communicated in person with basically three people in the last 6 months, three, and I'd be lying to say it wasn't wearing on me just floating between my two-person office and my household day in and day out. But in the end it's worth the effort if it keeps me, my family, and my friends as safe as possible.
     
    I'm a rootin-tootin Texan, a believer in individual liberty and rights, but I will be the first person to tell anyone that it's worth bending a bit and staying safe right now, even if it feels like an infringement to your liberties. Everyone can kick back and grumble about it later on, right now we have to make it through this.

    Downplaying the situation is just gonna make things worse. If you need an example of that, look no further than the United States. We're the only country still in the first wave!

    Perhaps I shouldn't have included Outemu as a "higher quality" switch maker than Cherry x3
     
    That being said, Cherry ain't much better.

    I did look up the board, and it did identify the switches as being made by Outemu. A common Cherry alternative in cheap boards.
     
    tbh I'd recommend Hexgears more, especially now that the Impulse board I reviewed last year and have since sent to my boyfriend has hotswap.

    Excuse me, Gateron, Outemu and Kailh are not "knock off" switches... especially when they're higher quality than Cherry's own offerings.
     
    In this case, Outemu is fairly standard in cheaper boards. They aren't amazing especially compared to Kailh and Gateron offerings, but they're still better than Cherry MX lol

    This virus is real.  All the damage it's causing... is real.  It's not being overblown.  It's people like you that this shit keeps getting prolonged.  People need to stop caring only about themselves and sticking their heads in the sand because they're inconvenienced by this shit.  It sucks.  But if we all worked together way earlier, like back in March, and stayed working together, we wouldn't be in this mess now.  

    I've lost people to this virus, and people like you are why its only getting worse, because, "the gubment lying."

    Nowak got a reaction from FakeNSA in Motorola launches the second-gen Motorola Razr.   
    Try telling that to Michael Fisher. I'm pretty sure the only reason why he wants it in his pocket over the Galaxy Z Flip is because of nostalgia for the original Razr.
