    Here's a couple pics of Dinky taken with my new 4k action cam, it's nowhere near as good as an SLR, but it's good enough for now while I get more experience, plus it's good for when we go on walks 😄

    paddy-stone reacted to Lurick in Why do they need to say that   
    The ONLY reason McDonalds was sued in the fashion they were is because they KNEW from thousands of complaints the coffee was far too hot and they chose to not do anything about it because they didn't want people waiting around for free coffee refills AND the woman only wanted (I can't remember if it was partial or full) medical payments and McDonalds refused, thus leading to the need for a larger lawsuit. Some people try to do and sue for really stupid stuff but it irritates me to no end that people can't bother to do any research on some of these lawsuits to see what really happened to cause it in the first place.

    Setup a samba share on ubuntu, then you can mount it as a network drive on windows and just copy and paste folders where you can.
     
    you pick what folders are shared, so you can just change it in the config file.

    Ah yes, the terrible "threat to safety" that is getting sued by Sony because they don't want anyone making custom crap for their console...

    HOw many drives do you plan ot use? Id get fewer bigger drives like 14 or 12tb drives
     
    id go 15 10400, pretty cheap igpu for video out , and quicksync for transcoding if needed, and plenty of cpu for some dockers.

    SATA literally CANNOT reach such speeds, which should make it very obvious that those numbers are some sort of a bug.

    paddy-stone got a reaction from hotmailbelike in What really is the best way to use your battery? (Mainly Mobile and Laptops)   
    AFAIK the latest line of batteries for mobiles at least, suggest only letting it go down to around 20% before charging again. But I think that it doesn't matter so much now, say you used 50% battery one day, charged it up again that night, and did the same the next day, equaling 100% in 2 days, which would be one charge cycle.
    And depending on the battery tech, they say that most batteries should still have max capacity up until so many charge cycles IIRC. I think you should be good for using one charge cycle a day for at least 3 years before the capacity significantly decreases. 
     
    With my old poco f1, it was charged most days for a full cycle, and is still going very well after around 800 days or so... my brother has that phone now and lets it get much lower before recharging it, I've tried explaining to him, but he doesn't get it... so we'll see how it goes.

    paddy-stone reacted to Oshino Shinobu in What kind of camera's do people shoot movies with?   
    There's no simple answer. Many different types of cameras are used for different purposes within film making. Some still use film cameras for certain properties that are hard to achieve on a purely digital platform. 
     
    As much as I hate the "Google it" mentality, I'd advise you to research it yourself to get an understanding rather than just getting people on a forum to do your school work for you.

    My thoughts
    This is quite the genius move from Ikea indeed. At least you can lay your Hands (pls disinfect them first) on Cardboard dummies of the Next Gen Consoles which are getting scalped to death right now and buy the perfect media center for them. Let's hope Ikea furniture isn't getting scalped next. Mods feel free to move this post to General Discussion if this story isn't suited for the Tech News Thread.

    That's how I play with Dink, she loves that I do what another dog would with her... I started doing it when she was really young when there's more of a communication barrier, but she and I both like it, so I continued 🤣
     
    Yes, I look mental when I do it, but it's so fun... she tells me off sometimes, cause she doesn't want to play. It's still funny though.

    Dinky got a ballerina outfit from her Auntie C, as well as a toy king charles spaniel, a centipede, and a baby carrot toy.  Here she is in outfit with the centipede toy. I can confirm that her nomenclature of "the destroyer" still stands - the carrot had his legs bitten off within 20 seconds of getting it, the centipede lost about 4 legs and lots of stuffing within about 30 mins, and the puppy lost both eyes, nose and ears - and had the stuffing taken out of the head by a few hours 🤣
    We only get soft toys for her now that are from charity shops BTW, we know she's gonna destroy them very quickly, so don't buy new any more.
     
    Apologies for the pic quality, I haven't got my new DJI osmo action camera yet (should be tomorrow), and she was very excited to have my sisters here for xmas, and her boo, Charlie of course.
     
     

     
     
    I got all the dogs (Dinky, Charlie, and Bella) a 7x7 pack of ranchos (like jerky for dogs pretty much), and a few little toys to play with too.

    Hope everyone that celebrates it, is having an excellent Xmas - be safe, and have a good new year too, let's hope it'll be better than 2020 x
