    Started watching Red Dwarf the other day and it’s wonderful!

    No performance profiles over here. May only be on the S-range.

    And no settings search on mobile Chrome. Weird that they left that out as it’s more difficult to navigate on mobile due to the very nature of how things are set up

  • Will stand by!

    Blech. Updated the BIOS as prompted and now the BIOS doesn’t detect the Linux SSD. 🙁 Off to support I guess

    Some notes on double sleeving: I’ve been using Japanese size sleeves from Dragon Shield enclosed by Dragon Shield standard size clear matte sleeves but the fit isn’t tight enough so the inner sleeve damages the outer sleeve when it jostles around. Sadly, my LGS doesn’t carry Japanese size outer sleeves so I’ll need to order those, more than…[Read more]

    We also have quite a few wild onions in the swamps around here. I need to get better at identifying them so that I can harvest them. They taste a lot better than store bought onions!

  • There’s a setting in the style pack for threaded replies but we’re not using that feature. Should we turn it on to see if it helps any regardless? Sometimes there’s some code sharing so fixing one bug will inadvertently fix another

    Yep, probably a good time to eat it. Don’t want it to get sadder! 🙂

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 1 month, 1 week ago

    Yuck. Will check on that. I think I did check in there and all I saw was battery saver but I’ll check again. It does sound like, from the thread, it’s a software bug. Seems Samsung has patched it on the newer devices but I haven’t gotten an update yet. Hopefully they’ll push one out!

    Above 90%, more heat is generated so that may be the rationale…[Read more]

    Sounds good 🙂

    If you do go with Linux, I recommend trying XFCE for your desktop environment. KDE and GNOME are the big ones but I’ve never had KDE run well even on a good system (always seems sluggish for whatever reason) and GNOME be a bit heavier as well. You could go piecemeal but that takes a lot more work to get everyone to share the…[Read more]

    Saw Demon of Paradise yesterday. It was a rip-off of The Creature from the Black Lagoon but was still pretty fun. It did have some hilarious moments, such as when the creature, in the water, jumps up and pulls down a helicopter. That shouldn’t even be possible unless it’s a few thousand pounds or is anchored to the bottom of the seabed!

    Sounds good 🙂

    If you do choose to upgrade the cooling, I recommend that you look at Noctua’s low profile coolers and fans if you don’t want to go with an AIO cooler (I still haven’t made the jump for whatever reason and still use air cooling). Make sure you measure before ordering to make sure it’ll fit! Noctua’s products are top notch. To give…[Read more]

    I’m a bit nervous to do that as they contain a neurotoxin and require special processing. Don’t really feel comfortable with that risk involved.

    We have century plants all over around here. They’re very popular with business for roadside decoration. We have some whose central stalks have gotten so tall they reach the utility poles!

    Yeah, Spanish…[Read more]

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 1 month, 1 week ago

    Nope, sadly. I really wish there was one to fix the battery drain issues. I used to be able to go a week without having to charge the tablet before the update, now it’s every couple of days 🙁

    Maybe, not sure of the current state of extension support on Android. Will need to check

    The old phone is a Motorola Nexus 6. Still use it some for…[Read more]

    This place looks interesting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_Mart

    We’re getting an Area 15 in Florida in the next few years. Sounds like it could be fun to explore the venue. 🙂

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Samsung Tablets in the forum Projects 1 month, 1 week ago

    Nope, no update here! Works okay for the most part, just pretty slow on ad heavy sites and sites with a lot of images. Running everything in a private browsing session does tend to help somewhat, though. Battery life, needless to say, is garbage at this point 😛

    Will check the settings menu!

    I’ve got a pretty basic A7 Lite. It came without a lot…[Read more]

    For the Oblivion system, have you tried replacing the coin cell battery? When they go belly up, the board can start doing some funky things.

    Yeah, sounds like it’s time to replace the aging workhorses. Always sad when a piece of tech dies 🙁

  • Bob Marley replied to the topic Computer Setup in the forum Projects 1 month, 1 week ago

    Yeah, that’d work if you’re looking for pretty basic. You may want to upgrade the cooling a bit if you go with it, though. In my experience, the mass market brands often cut corners with the cooling so things can get a bit hot when you’re playing a game. Should also run No Man’s Sky, which I highly recommend you try at some point 🙂

    Upgrading can…[Read more]

    The sequel isn’t much better. It spends nearly two hours focusing on his sister’s PTSD. It does have a redeeming feature: Weird Al makes a brief appearance. Still have half an hour left. Ugh but I’ll finish it. Once I start one, I force it through. I got through Plan 9! 😛

    I need a good creature feature. I haven’t had a good one since Humanoids…[Read more]
