Have a little mount adapter that attaches to my car's CD slot - hang an Asus Zenpad off it. Monitors car performance, systems, etc via BT, and does GPS mapping duties as well as running audio/video.
Or watch movies/whatever when cooking. That's it. My 2013 CF-53 Toughbook is my main machine, with a seriously overpowered dev machine sitting in the corner for heavy stuff.
If you really thinking about it, 99% mobile sites suck monkey balls and don't have the functionality of a full website, so what's the point of using a tablet?
Apologies for the rambling, but I don't think about them any longer - was fun while it lasted though.
Re: Maybe, maybe not.
>But ultimately, I foresee some sort of ultra-high density write-once media being developed for long term archival storage.
Already has with MDISC - a bit pricey but worth it imo.
I do. At least once.
From the inside. Already started.
Re: Money talks, bullshit walks
No, that's Life.
30k users, 1200+ websites - zero downtime. Thus the six months - I was under quite a bit of pressure, might have aged a few years during that time ;)
What the hell?
I had 8MB in my Windows 95 machine! Watched the Hindenburg crash may many times on the free encyclopedia CD on my 2X cdrom that came with it.
Did 98, 98SE, straight to Windows 2000 Pro (we don't talk about ME), XP, Win7, Win 8.1 and stopped before Windows 10...
Makes you wish OS/2 Warp won, doesn't it?
NT video drivers... 0 resolution with 0 bit color... I didn't mind NT - did the upgrade from NT 4.03 to Windows 2000 AD at an ISP all by my lonesone, took six months and two Solaris (first pizza, then x86) boxen for DNS duties...
Was good times, much better than today's Internet O'Shite
Yes, known about Chad for years, had to look at the details... and I checked two boxes...
I like my V6 Mustang! (30mpg!) AND my next-gen S10, the GMC Canyon (23 mpg, Mustang beats it in almost every category - even hauling stuff, the 2007 Mustang has a big ass)... shitfire... but I'm good everywhere else.
Re: Principle or just being pissy?
No clouds, no subscriptions... Yes, going against Microsoft's current business model and I'll use every tool available to force the issue.
I dare a politician to take up for Microsoft, I will expose them to be bought-and-paid-for fools - because I can and am very good at finding information that does not want to be found.
Principle or just being pissy?
My issue is the lack of security/privacy in the Windows 10 consumer versions up to/and including Pro being infected with Microsoft's version of Google's data snatching in Android. I can guarantee you that state governments are running the consumer versions, so now we have the public's state/federally required private data being uploaded to Microsoft's servers - how good do you feel about that?
Me, I'm starting a crusade in my corner of government, which includes those boring elections politicians like to cry about but not do anything proactive to secure. I've got one state behind me and I'm sure I'll get more... Seriously, I'm going to scream like a stuck pig until the Enterprise edition is made available to government & small business without a volume license etc - I'm tired of this bullshit and I've got nothing better to do except be a total pain in the ass until I get this accomplished.
Don Quixote or just dumbass? Cuz, I'm doing it anyway ;)
> Would that actually be a crime?
Technically? Probably not, but the public defender for the person busted for this kind of crime, won't use it for a defense lol...
Russians sailed right through a 10 year old Sonicwall I begged somebody to replace...
Last time I heard, charges on their CC processing company was over $150k... smh
Re: Only cracking I have done is
> They are DELLs locked with a boot password
Try a Panasonic Toughbook, it_is_not_the_same...
I had a (actually this one I'm on) Panasonic CF-53 I picked up on CL* for $200 and it was locked down to a fair-thee-well. Took it apart, motherboard is in three separate pieces, no matter what, it held on to it's password like it's life depended on it. After about two months of exclusive kitchen table priority(there is nada on web for Toughbooks btw), finally gave up and sent it off to Panasonic to clear the password. Cost me like $200.
*It was legit. Somebody used it to pay off a landscaper and the landscaper didn't know what he had so... It's a good machine lol.
huh... just got Oreo...
... Nothing dramatic to say, just wierded out that my Verizon Moto Z Force got Oreo... Odd for Verizon to update a phone *twice* in it's lifetime.
Re: Even Canadians that find themselves in the USA...
The system won't charge you until you finish the fuel delivery... Something I didn't know about until relatively recently and I'm Americanese... have been all my life pretty sure.
Answering 'Tennessean' in a comforting Southern Drawl, in my experience, has shown to totally fuck up citizens of other countries... Never give them what they expect and don't be a dick about it, always gracious. Ain't my country, different rules.
Only time that has failed was in Bremerhaven, when I ran across a German Scooter Gang, similar to American Biker Gangs, leather, chains, tatts, attitude, but with 80-cc scooters. I_could_not_stop_laughing and they didn't take kindly. Polizei saved my ass that day lmfao...

Re: It happens with old school locks too
No, it does *not* happen with non-chinesium old school locks - your case was a dumbass installer, not a manufacturing design defect lol.
Re: Where did you get that $20 padlock?
Master locks are easy in any case - sat down one day with a case of 50 new padlocks, opened 41 of them with a rock - without damaging the locks at all. Put a little tension on the hasp and tap either side of the body, back and forth, and the lock will most likely open - gets easier with older worn Master padlocks.
Re: Old money vs new
Ever drive down through Murphy NC via Hwy 64? Good ride. I imagine you go across I-40.
I lived in Simi Valley in the early 70's, spent the majority of my time in Southern Arizona (pointy mountains dude..) though. Moved here in 03, favorite part of the country.
Re: Old money vs new
If in the Rockies, sure, see your point.
If in Texas, fuck off > Texas doesn't have any mountains...low mesas max.
One thing to remember, if Burt Reynolds couldn't make it out of the Smokies in 'Deliverance', I don't think much of your chances ;)
Re: Old money vs new
Appalachians and/or Smoky Mountains...
EXACTLY what I was thinking... 'What's in 'em?'
Parts is parts....
The old boy, Vint Cerf, could come around and visit my clients to explain IPv6, but wouldn't get past the secretary... I'd get a call saying some crackpot speaking in tongues came by.
They are *not* going to spend the money unless it's broken.
Ever get the idea we're doing this all wrong?
Datasets datasets datasets... essentially choices weighted with different probabilities which is good and fine, but it's the question that matters. How do you get AI to ask the right question to arrive at the correct answer?
Like a good 85% of IT is the strength of your Googlefu - some folks are very very good at it, most are not. Why? Some folks are better at the question and get better/correct results.
Worth it to escape to Europe...
Just to clear the air... No way in hell will GDPR-like protections being enabled here in the Land of the... well, you've heard of it...
"A normal human driven car would still have run over the cyclist/pedestrian/lemming so I don't see how they could have caused the death."
No. That road is brightly lighted up, video notwithstanding, I've driven down there myself at night.
If you've ever been to Scottsdale or Mesa, they have money there, lots of it, and they light up the roads.
Uber turned off the emergency braking portion of the 'AI', and of all the options it probably should have been programmed with (avoidance, *some* braking, big fucking light/sound screaming at the driver, etc)..
This van digitally went 'KIIIIIIYAAAA!' and ran the human over... Uber Fuck It Option. Damn.
The title is too long.

I'll tell you straight up I'm feeling a bit off...
Just ask me.
'There are frequency generator apps, and computer programs you could use.'
Those require 'smart' devices to use - they are not going to hurt their own people, thus the dumb generator...
I hate a lyin' computer.. don't tell me they don't know...

The beatings will continue until morale improves...
Re: Simple explanation
Dr Syntax is correct.
I will also add the fact that business owners really don't care about IPv6 and will refuse to pay for the time it would take to convert their networks(s) over. I cannot afford to work for free either.
Re: I can take a stab at it..
Fuck you dude - that dual stack creates all kinds of network inconsistencies on client networks, it's all or none, IPv4 baby!
Comcast offers IPv6 in my area...
...and it FUCKS UP older Windows AD domain services. Had to disable IPv6 in order for the machines to find each other and the damn servers on clients' network... MAN I was pissed off that day.
Prove it by making Windows 10 Enterprise available to the general public at your local Walmart/Staples/Amazon - Call it the Windows 10 Privacy Edition.
Re: Last time this happened...
There are machine screws. Not pointy.
Re: Smoke/steam microwaves, fire alarms and power isolation equipment.
When I was 13, my dad let me drive his new 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo down the driveway. Didn't move 20 feet when a fan belt broke and for whatever reason, he blamed me. Never got to drive another car/truck owned by my dad... I'm 54 and he's 80 now...
404 - Breaker of Fan Belts.
Still waiting on Oreo...
... I imagine Verizon will get around to it - tired of looking at the 'Coming Soon in a Few Weeks' over the last few weeks... Moto Z Force smh.
I know the system well - it's not to spec*, everyone here would point and laugh, and that's all I can say about that.
*not my fault, I told 'em.
I've got way too much cash, thinks Jeff Bezos. Hmmm, pay more tax? Pay staff more? Nah, let's just go into space
Re: giving plegde
Gates just gave a pretty nice $16M horse farm to his daughter for a graduation present - rich people problems - I got $50 at mine lol. I can admit I'm a bit jealous, that's a number I've never played with personally.
Re: Still using both Windows Home Server and Windows Media Center
VLC still works well too ;)

Can you imagine? An Amazon Basics Peniship exploding above Rio to 'encourage' the leadership of Brazil to come to it's senses? Whew.. corporate wars. Like 'Friday' by Robert Heinlein.
Re: 7 years for trying to get somebody out a few months early
/depends... Every_single_county around here did some upgrades and now take state long-term felons in for the extra cash. State pays more for incarceration, soooo $profit$
Re: Big red
That minute gets charged for two hours - just because they made me look. Stupid should always hurt in some way.
This is what I go by.
Re: Chipset in the mod is decent
This will be easier and more helpful to you:
Has a list of trusted vendors as well as battery tests and ratings
Re: Yeah good luck buddy
I read the complaint pdf and looked the guy up - he's a 20 year old mechanic with tatts, an iPhone, can't fake sleeping for shit, and a thin porn 'stash - according to his GoFundMe, he saved his little brother and sister from the flames. What they were doing in his shorts is left to the imagination of the reader.
Currently, he has $20 of $20,000 donated with almost a year since the campaign was started.
I have four sets of married 30Q's I rotate through on my dual 18650 mods, changed up and got four Sony VTC6's for my Hotcig RSQ. I'm liking the Sonys over the Samsungs, have a bit more power when used in the RSQ.
