  1. I feel bad for those who wish harder for the downfall of their opponent’s cause than the victory of their own.

      Are there people doing that? Usually wishing for the downfall of something you oppose is so that what you root for will triumph. People who just wish for the downfall of something with no suggestion for an alternative are usually the “wanna watch the world burn” type no? I guess they’d be pitiable 🤔

      So basically pessimists vs optimists?

       

      Yeah I can see where you're coming from. People would rather complain about the bad things than talk about what's good.

       

      The world we live in. 😕

      I mean it mostly about politics. People focus so much about their opponents views and why they are “bad” they often forget to examine their own and consider why they believe them to be good. The end result is the same, but oh boy does one mindset lead to a lot more personal suffering.

  2. I have now officially made money trading crypto, to the tune of about 13% in the last month. I still hold a generally negative view of it, but I mostly hold that view around our attitude towards it and it’s negative societal implications. I now believe that it is possible to solve these issues relatively quickly

      Correct. I also dislike the attitude that a lot of people have towards it though. On both sides of the argument.

  3. My, the last few months have been a mess. It’ll probably only get messier too, but I’m surviving 

  4. People with authoritarian tendencies scare me a little

      For the record I do not mean that in a political way, I mean it in a “people who try to control the lives of others around them by putting themselves in the position of an authority figure” way

  5. I’d love to go vegan, but as it is I can barely digest any sort of plant protein
  6. Why I, a car enthusiast who loves petrol engines cars, is excited for the electric car revolution and the death of the internal combustion engine:

     

    I always here petrolheads talk about how soulless electric cars are, but I think they miss the point. Have they driven a new non-electric car? They all have no soul. Cars with a soul died years ago. I’m not sad to see new cars with IC engines go. Electric is soon, if not already, better than IC in pretty much every way. Here’s where it comes together though- just because new cars won’t come with IC engines it doesn’t mean that they all just disappear. The vast majority of the population does not care, but the minority that does care cares a lot, enough to support a miniature scale of the infrastructure we have now. You’ll have your daily, it’ll be electric, and it’ll be a wonderful car (and probably fast as hell...), but there’s no reason you couldn’t also have a “classic” petrol powered car, albeit one that’s costly to run, that you take out on the weekends or to the track. Jay Leno has mentioned this idea before, and it really stuck with me. The vast majority of people don’t care about cars as anything other than transportation, so when they say the death of petrol powered cars, they mean the death of petrol powered transportation.  But to people like you and me, cars and transportation aren’t necessarily synonymous and as we begin to take environmentalism more seriously there will be a bunch of situations like this in all walks of life. It’s more than possible, if not entirely probable, that this will be a very common situation.

  7. It isn't worth it, judging by that sticker. It's really old, and even in its most powerful spec it will still be many years obsolete.
  8. all of them. I only refer to things through obscure hand motions
  9. It's been said to death, but they're for the most part fine. Wood is actually really strong when you orient it in the right direction, and longevity isn't horrible either, probably in the range of 150 years or so (if properly maintained) before it's no longer economical to repair, and at that point building design will probably have changed enough that a new building will be more attractive anyway.
  10. Finally decided i hate cryptocurrencies as a whole and not just mining.

      Yeah mining doesn’t kill the cards, what is a disappointing problem is what’s going to happen to them when mining on them isn’t profitable anymore (ship them all to me pls)

      Oh, no

      Mining does kill cards, compared to sitting them on shelves of course

       

      There's also miners who use low quality mining PSU, which may damage it if the psu's ripple isn't great

       

      So far from my experience, mining has never not been profitable, the profitability drops but it was never in the red for me

      But if my GPU does indeed become unprofitable and I finished my ROI, I plan on donating them (and accompanying full system, fully funded by the GPU mining of course) to local charities, or people who needs computer to study from home but can't

      correct, i just meant its not like they're dropping like flies from mining. I sure hope that whenever all the huge mining warehouses decide it's time to close up shop they ship the cards where demand is high rather than just recycling them

  11. Agreed. The screen in my MacBook is just beautiful, and the fact that they’ve been doing them like that for almost a decade is incredible. It’s not the highest resolution but any more than it is in this size is just a waste, color is great, viewing angles are fantastic, brightness is good, and just giving it a good stare it looks nice to the eyes.
  12. The out header is for plugging another RGB device into it so it can be controlled by the same port as well.
  13. I have about 100 hours experience with the Volkswagen equivalent of this problem, and I find that it’s easier, cheaper, and faster to just pull the head unit out and replace it with a double din one. They make some pretty cool ones these days edit- dont worry about why it took me 100 hours to figure this out for my car. Not a fun process.
  14. Interesting. My MacBook has NONE, and unless there’s something I’m not aware of it’s an IPS panel. Maybe Apple is just picky and rejects all but the best panels, or they designed it specifically to mitigate the issue
  15. I’d sure hope so too. Don’t sweat it too much though, These batteries don’t just magically stop working. I see no reason why, in completely normal use, a battery wouldn’t last 4 years.
