  1. Yes im alive also you want to know what sucks? Working morning shifts and on your day off you wake up look at your clock and see you start in 5 minutes, start panicking, and finally remembering that you dont work today....

      Done that. I agree.  All that adrenaline and abject fear for nothing.

      yeah, it was horrible, luckily i only had 3 hours of sleep at that moment so i was able to fall asleep pretty quickly

  2. So I bought the Asus Zenfone 8 and it arrived today, so far after a days use I'm liking it. It was a bit weird to get used to at the start but I've mostly gotten used to it. Though I will say the typing compared to the S9 just feels a bit off, that's the best way I can think of describe it.

     

    Also this may or may not be the reason I replaced the S9

    I do plan on buying a replacement screen and attempting to replace it myself at some point though.

      Only a picture of the broken phone? Shame 😛

      Did you get the small one?

      You don't use a different keyboard like Swiftkey?

      It's more to to do the sensitivity and haptic feedback if I were to try to point something out

       

      Heres the pics of the zenfone

      Also, when is Seasonic releasing a higher-wattage version of the Connect PSU? Can't even touch it until it's higher than 800W at this time.

  4. well if theres any good thing about this 60hr week, its that i've been given a raise to $17/hr and when my GM was talking to me about it he did vaguely mention the possibility of moving on up. So i may be a possible candidate for a manager position.

  5. im wishing for death right now, worked from 5am to 5pm today, never again, it was horrible. On the brightside i'll probably be gettings around 17 hours of OT this week. Bringing me up to 22 hours of OT for this pay period, but yeah, it was a struggle....

      I get time off that makes up for it. Because of pandemic, we work 3 weeks of 12 hours days, then have 3 off. Next month we go back to 2 weeks for 2 weeks off. Add in PTO and I only work 5 months a year at a normal 9 to 5.

    4. Bombastinator

      Yeah,  there’s a reason the 8 hour day down from 12 was a major thing.  The difference is kinda huge.

  6. Got the Fitbit Versa 3 yesterday and so far I'm liking it. At first it didn't feel that nice to wear and it bothered me, but after a little while I've gotten used to it. Its definitely not so comfortable that I forget its there though. 

     

    Its nice to actually see how much I actually move around but its also not nice because now I know for sure how lazy I am. My resting heart rate while sitting at my desk is in the mid 80s and just walking around brings it to around 100 so yay.... I am at least moving around more than I did before. Though i am quite curious how much I move around at work. But I don't believe I'll be able to wear it during work sadly.

     

    But yeah, so far I'm liking it, but we shall see in the coming weeks

      How precise are those? a rate of 80 just while sitting seems high, either that or I'm dead because mine is about 55 lol, 100 running, measured with a medical monitor

      I'd get one just as a gadget for training but ToS for everything 'smart' are terrible.

      In my defense im pretty lazy and have been for the last many years, so thats probably why mine is so high

  7. the pain, ow the pain. So we were talking and while i didnt confess, the idea of dating(not us dating, just dating in general) came up. And she apparently has no interest in dating at the moment. So yeah... i essentially got rejected without even asking her out, it hurts. But but but, that also means she doesnt see anyone like that, so one of my biggest fears is gone. Just need to take things slow and become better friends, hopefully.

      Yeah, and I still have a chance possibly, just gotta get closer and give it some time.

      It's best to take it slow than to rush things. Take your time, and don't give up!

  9. So recently i've been dealing with a feeling i havent really felt before. Its been weird and tough, its taken me 20 years of my life, but i have finally found someone I like. But uh im a little bitch... I've known her for a bit less than a year and we occasionally talked, never really thought much more than that. But in the last couple months we've been talking a lot more. We're apparently friends according to her so thats great. Dont have her number though and we only talk at work so thats not so great.

     

    It's weird feeling like this, but im trying in my own slow awkward way...

      Hey go you ! I wish all the best shall you attempt to make the next step. Just don't ask me for any advice since I haven't done anything remotely close to what you're outlining here 😅

      I'm trying, gonna ask her if she wants to hang out, outside of work sometime, when i see her again. 

  10. Yeah, I had looked at the A52 and A71 and they are just way to big. I hadn't looked at the S20 FE, will definitely definitely take a look thanks.
  11. So my phone screen has been broken for probably two years by now, part of the screen is black and his some issues with the touch sensor in that area. And while it still works just fine, its been slowly growing and getting quite annoying at times. So I'm thinking of getting a new phone, I do want to try fixing my S9 but i would rather not be out a phone for a bit on the off chance i end up breaking it. I think my only requirements is that is has expandable storage, the screen size is 6" or less, and its an android phone. And while I would like to have a 3.5mm jack, it is not a requ
  12. So how are Nokias phones nowadays? Are they any good and how bad is their android install? Is it full of a bunch of crap that cant be uninstalled like Samsungs?

      I don’t know much about the new Nokias but my big problem with them is their lack of official lineageOS support which is caused because of the supposed inability to unlock the bootloader.

       

       

      Afaik, they’re sticking to mostly stock android with 2 years of major updates and I believe 3 years of security updates.

       

      I’d buy a new Nokia if there was strong official lineageOS support for it.

  13. I've been trying to hold off as long as i can but i think im gonna have to get a new phone soon. I dropped my phone last year and caused damage to the screen. To where its black and has issues with the touch screen there(sometimes acts as if that area is being touched and stuff). Its been slowly growing and its starting to get to a point where its getting in the way of proper usage... No idea what phone to get, its an S9, so i dont want to end up gettings essentially a downgrade, but i dont pay attention to phones so i have no clue what would be roughly equivalent or better

      iFixit might sell replacement parts for your phone. If you're comfortable with opening up your phone to repair it, that's definitely an option.

      Thats been something I've considered. But I don't have any experience whatsoever taking apart phones. So while I do want to do it, I don't want to risk breaking my only phone. 

  14. well i managed to get a clean install done, the media creation tool didnt want to work, so i ended up using the built in tool. However because the windows that i had had been cloned from my prebuilt, it had been modified to bring in shitty hp crap. So i tried the media creation tool again and low and behold it works. And now i dont have any hp bloatware, just microsoft bloatware.

     

    Thanks to the clean install the issue with the recovery crap after going into the bios is gone. Though for some reason, even so much enabling xmp causes my pc to bsod, so im not even gonna try to oc it.

     

     

    Oh and i also gave my self a panic attack because i forgot to backup some stuff including my pictures. Luckily because i had done the whole cloning thing for the nvme drive, i still have all those pictures on my prebuilt

  15. So for doing a clean install of windows, do you use the built in tool thag windows 10 has? Or do you use the iso/flash drive way?

    1. FakeKGB

      FakeKGB

      I use Microsoft's tool. Worked fine.

      I reinstall via flash drive. Prefer to be a fresh new installation.
