  1. Necro-bumping this thread since I am looking to choose between two laptops thru my local Costco. Use cases include office apps, light photo editing (no video), Internet browsing, generally not movie watching. Stationary, plugged-in use (ie. 99% not portable). Both with 15.6" displays, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD 1. MSI GS66 - Intel Core i9-10980HK (8 core) processor - Max-Q GPU - 8GB NVIDIA GeForceĀ® RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q Graphics (1920x1080 resolution) - Legacy ports (RJ45 Ethernet, USB A both of which I would use) 2.

  2. Thank you everyone - much appreciated, truly.
  3. Both seasons of The Umbrella Academy (Netflix), Absolutely fantastic! Everything a sci-fi/superhero ensemble franchise should be. Very well produced on all levels, and fresh. Highly recommended for fans of this genre.
  4. That was one, crazy opening episode!
  5. Finally got around to the final season of Travelers (season 3). I actually went back through S2 again due to the long timeframe since originally watching that. Great stuff, and a satisfying ending journey for our time-hoppers. Now on to The Magicians (SyFy). I'm well into season 2 now, and binging hard. How the heck did I miss this when it was actually on IRT? Great stuff here too, for many of the same reasons, plus the occasional musical theater number!

    Speaker Porn

    ^IIRC, those speakers were super-inexpensive Insignia brand bookshelves from BestBuy some time back. The juxtaposition of them against the rest of that gear is astounding & wonderful.
  7. Well, actually Sunday & yesterday...in order: Fired my lawn-cutting guy Mowed & trimmed my own lawn for the first time in 4 years Realized how grossly out-of-shape I am The good news are: My push-mover fired up on the first try Since I'm still working from home, I can split the lawn-cutting tasks across at least two days to create a built-in lunchtime exercise activity
  8. ^I really liked season 1 of Search Party. IIRC, season 2 kind of went off the rails & lost it's likeability, imo.
  9. Just finished Maniac & loved it! So quirky, and so many layers. Cathartic & ultimately satisfying, imo. One of my favorite tv series ever now.

    Westworld

    I'd say if you liked, and followed, season 1, then the second is a natural extension & worth your watch. S2 had some amazingly beautiful episodes (the one's that centered on Shogun World & the native American Ghost World, come to mind), culminating in a finale that provides a satisfying payoff for your efforts, imo. I just finished season 3, and I can't recommend it to anyone, sadly...
  11. Any recommendations for a basic trainer to turn my road bike into a stationary? Looking to get some exercise during my @home work lunch hours. Nothing fancy, just sturdy & not requiring tools for every adjustment. Maybe...$150-300 range-ish?

  13. An enterprising local pro photographer has begun marketing a "front-porch" photo service. She sets up a session where a family poses on their front porch, while she photographs a safe distance away from the sidewalk. Social media posts seem to indicate she is doing well during this crazy time.
