  1. Was it recorded, Jim? Would love to watch/listen to it.
  2. I don't know if a rodecaster pro would fit your needs. It is $99 out of your budget and quite a versatile device. Not enough gain for my mic so it is going back to B&H but I'd imagine you could do most of if not all of what you are trying to do.
  3. I use texmaker and a 13" screen often leaves me wanting for a bigger screen. I've gotten to the point where I don't like using my laptop when using LaTeX. I've tried reducing the font size but that rarely helps. If you are not using a pdf viewer to look at your document, the 13" will likely be fine. If it is mostly going to be used locally, go for the 16". Buyer beware, however - https://www.tomsguide.com/opinion/the-16-inch-macbook-pro-has-a-major-quality-control-problem
  4. I have no doubt it is possible. The IT dolts refuse to do it. To them, OS X goes on a Mac and Windows goes on a PC. Anything else and they stick their heads back in the sand.
  5. Can't do that. Institutional guidelines for computers storing data for NSF projects say clean windows install on a PC that can be remotely wiped in case of theft/loss. IT won't install windows or let me do it on a Mac.
  6. Greetings from South Florida! Would anyone be interested in a mint condition 2018 13" MacBook Pro (2.3 ghz i5 quad core, 8gb ram, 256 gb ssd) with Touch Bar (space gray)? AppleCare+ until 08/21/2021. Figured I'd try here before I went to eBay and the likes. Currently has the Catalina beta but I can take it back down to the last stable release upon request. Comes with all the original box/papers. Grant work requires me to go back to a windows device
  7. https://www.stressless.com/en/stressless-recliners/stressless-nordic/nordic-classic Ekornes makes some truly fabulous stuff. I sat in one of these and have never sat in anything nicer.
  8. I just leave a webcam pointed in the general direction of areas I didn't want the cleaning staff to go to. Caught one of the staff doing something they weren't supposed to and the security office was thankful I sent them the video clip. I just leave it plugged into my desktop the whole time and delete the video the following day. Take a a few seconds to scrub through the video as the cleaning staff only ever show up in my office over a 20 minute window.
  9. Old PC from 2013 is giving up the ghost. This is what I have parted out but quite honestly I have not kept up with any hardware developments. Thoughts? I know I am missing a graphics card - plan on using my old gtx 760 until the prices of gfx cards become somewhat sane. https://secure.newegg.com/Wishlist/SharedWishlistDetail?ID=NCiXPaja6pg%3d&&cm_mmc=snc-email-_-sr-_-wishlist-NCiXPaja6pg%3d-_-06/11/2018
  10. Purchased another mic. Got a code for the game included with the mic. Free to the first person that pm's me. Instructions on the back say windows only.
  11. Is a hackintosh on the table? Best bang for buck I've found. I can still use osx without paying Apple prices. Doesn't work out of the box or as seamlessly as an actual apple product but saves a considerable amount of money. I am running one from 4 years ago and it still runs like a champ. The processor (i7 - 4770) is starting to show its age while encoding videos but more or less it is still quite good. I doubt I would get a significant boost for an insignificant increase in cost.
  12. Flew in to San Francisco for my sister's pa school white coat ceremony at Berkeley. Flying out tomorrow. She has worked extremely hard and was given the academic award for having the highest gpa in didactics. Extremely proud of her. Wish I had more time. The city looks great fun.
