    Just had a weird weird thing happen with my phone.  It wouldn’t connect to the net either through wifi or cmt (if this thing even still uses cmt and not something newer.  I haven’t kept up) so I restarted it and everything was fine, but the phone dropped a significant number of actions. It restarted at what I’m pretty sure was an earlier point than when I was using it. Might be normal behavior.  There was a weird glitch that messed stuff up, so it tossed the data that wasn’t probably clean. An oddity, or at least something that felt like one.  Computers aren’t smart though.  God chance it was doing what it was supposed to.

    What would cause YouTube Home Screen to be blank?
     
    Looked at my YouTube home screen on my iPhone and I got a blank whits page.  It attempts to load images because I see the grey boxes where they would be but then it comes up white.  It’s weird.

    First time I've managed to clip through the ground in Horizon 4. It's much harder to find spots where you can do it in the newer games. I stumbled upon this one completely by accident.

    Strategy: I buy Visa Gift cards with my Amex Simplycash plus and I get 5% cash back at office supply stores... including on gift cards. The simplycash plus is no longer offered by Amex (gee I wonder why?), but ive been grandfathered in. Then I use the gift cards to pay my college tuition. I've gotten effectively $500 off my college tuition + room and board every year doing this.

    My friend and I made around $7000 selling pictures of GPUs on eBay lol. We also refunded everyone after we shipped it so they didn't actually loose any money. I would feel way too bad taking peoples money like that if they were loosing money.

    $100 later, I switched all my electronics gadgets over to rechargeable AA, AAA, and 9v batteries.
     
    There's a LOT more to rechargeable batteries than just going to a store and picking up the ones that say "rechargeable" on them and using those. My family tried to change over all our household batters to rechargeable in 2011 and it went disasterously because at the time there were no Low self-discharge NI-MH batteries yet.
     
    Some Batteries are optimized for capacity, but will self-discharge in storage. Some batteries have a low capacity but great self-discharge characteristics, and still some batteries are cheap and good, but you don't rerally know who is the underlying OEM. Pro battery tip: If you don't know what to buy, get the Panasonic Eneloop cells, But not from Amazon cause they might be fakes. Batteryjunction.com sells genuine ones, and so does Costco. And for the love of god don't use the charger your cells come with. Pony up the money for a proper microcontroller smart-charger so you don't overcharge your batteries.
