  1. Why is there still a sports illustrated? Why a sexist swimsuit issue trying to be all woke with a heavier cover girl? I thought the internet would make all this go away. Instead they are doubling down. It's 2022, where are all the flying cars at?
  2. There may be a few more targeted attacks. In the IT dept I worked in last year, we had a 60" TV displaying attempted network intrusions. The topmost country was always China by far. Russia was always between 2-5 on the list. Russia will no doubt move up the list, but they would have a hard time becoming number one. The big issue in any IT dept is people based. Careless browsing, people bringing In unsecured laptops from outside. And the fact that HR never told us when someone left. We had a ton of accounts active that should of been suspended. With office 365, they could still use their email months after they left.
  3. Working on modern cars is always an injury waiting to happen. Busted knuckles are part of the process. I'm not looking forward to changing sparkplugs on the v6 Camry. The cowl and the intake manifold need to come off. I try to use mechanic gloves, but at some point they come off to get that hard to reach bolt out. And then you find that sharp edge.
  4. I have been watching all of it closely. My younger son is deployed In Kuwait in an Army air support group. They are prepped for sudden redeployment as needed.
  5. Believe me, I wasn't going to pay a lot. The number of people watching the item has soared. They will do what they always do, bid stax stuff up to Ridiculous amounts. I was kind of hoping the connector would scare most people away.
  6. A lot of people think India and Pakistan will get into a nuclear Exchange at some point. They hate each other and have small Border battles all the time.
  7. And to top it off there are research labs with Dangerous pathogens in harm's way. No one seems to be able to clearly explain what They are or why they are there. Some reports are Animal virus research, all the way to Soviet era Bioweapons. The only clear message is they are Concerned.
  8. Good to know. Thanks. Now the fun part. I put in a bid. I was just a bit worried about bidding on some hacked up mess.
  9. sr-lambda pro. what in the world is going on with this connector??? guy says it was made for head accoustics. it says exactly that on the headband.
  10. I find the web 3.0 stuff a bit disturbing. Reality will bitch slap these guys sooner or later.
  11. They tried that whole defund the police thing here in Memphis about 12 years ago. The 1st thing to go was all driving sense. I see people driving 55mph downtown and blow through red lights all the time. I see accidents everywhere I drive. They did a 180 and are trying to rebuild the police force. There is a suburb that enforces the speed limit with zero tolerance. And the crime rate there is a fraction of what it is around it. It literally drops like a rock at the city limits. I guess hoodlums don't like to be pulled over by police.
  12. If they send you a photo of an offense, sent they a photo of some cash. Only fair. They have red light cameras here managed by a private company. Since they are not really the government and they didn't give them any authority, people just ignore the tickets. You'd think if they hired them to this, there would be some kind of legal backing.
  13. I found the scifi dune miniseries at the library. Not bad. It's a hard book to make into a movie
  14. Horse tranc, who knew it was a thing? As far as the other thing goes, at least the rednecks no longer have worms. Maybe I should start a rumor about snorting drano. I remember a guy in USMC boot camp covering his head with a towel and snorting the propellant from underarm deorderant. Anything for a buzz!
  15. Took an hour long walk at Shelby Farms park. Yesterday it was the Wolf river trail in Germantown. Tennessee has a lot more nature areas to wander around in Than North Texas.
  16. The little green book of chairman Rahma. Very different book from Brian Herbert.
  17. Frank Herbert's The White Plague. He did other stuff besides Dune. I have no idea why Hellstrom's Hive wasn't a movie Perfect scifi horror..
  18. Given the large number of DAC and headphone companies out there, a lot more are going to go under. All covid did was speed up the process.
  19. ktm

    Rick and Morty

    Season 5 starts Sunday!
  20. Thanks. Now it's time to figure out what to do with the rest of my life.

    RIP Sennheiser?

    With hundreds of companies selling headphones, sooner or later there will be a bloodbath. Lets hope the Senn stuff hangs around for a while.
  22. Number 6 is pretty important. Ask my data center guys.
  23. He wasn't by any chance near a data center generator?
