You're going to Gitmo fo sure
Used to be invested in phones with keyboards, but they were poor for coding work on the go
Since last summer, I have an allrounder: 8 inch/ i7 11thGen/16GB/1TB ~850gms including charger, got a deal for 650 Eur (https://gpd.hk/gpdwinmax2021)
Keyboard large enough to comfortably type on a bus, it barely fits in my coat [207x145x26mm]. At home its a media player behind my TV.
I work on it exclusively when travelling. I can play all games, including Cyberpunk, although I had to tweak the config to turn off the raytracing. Its possible to use eGPUs with full bandwidth due to USB-4
It handles my coding needs, GPU heavy stuff and rendering. Never hangs or crashes. Battery life is 12 hours with WiFi on Battery saver. Bought it from a French eBay seller, new for 650 Euros last summer.
Only thing missing is a SIM slot. Then I wouldn't need my phone.
In the future, I would love a similar machine, slightly smaller in dimensions, without the game pad, so it could fit into smaller pockets
Ahhhhh fuck..... how did I mess that up ? I only thought about Amazon.com and totally forgot AWS
True. Young americans are already on the Chicom biometric harvesting tool TikTok.
Old americans were the $$ left for Fbook. Hopefully significant numbers will migrate. That would leave the much less lucrative Euro, Indo, ME, Afro, Latino markets.
Twatter is irrelevant outside the blue check mark self absorbed fools. You noticed the drop in the last 6 months, there was also a huge drop since the Trump ban, which they hid by changing their metrics again.
Only other monoliths are Youtube & Amazon, luckily Amazon doesn't influence social trends as much.
Youtube isn't dying yet, but its growth stopped, while numerous competitors are exploding - rumble youku oddyssee bilibili spotify. Things will only go down for youtube.
Its not the Beginning of the End. But, it is the End of the Beginning
......but how does Trump think he will have anyone come to his platform, if the views of his core base are deemed "hate speech" ?
Are they that out of touch ?
Then again, they villified Gab and bet on Gettr...... so there's a head up a horse's ass
Blackmail ? All of them ? Where's the proof ?
If there was payment, then they made a deal of their own free will. Nobody put a gun to their head.
All this, after the man is dead and can't defend himself, and without a shred of proof. Classy.
Nah, whores were always like this. Remember all the 'victims' on Oprah & Jerry Springer ? Somehow all these losers come out after they've cashed the checks from Sugar Daddy
These whores had no problem staying with these so called predators. Who stopped them from leaving ?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh RIP my ears !
Too accurate !
The media are just repeating "unbiased" AP and Reuters. Fact Check True !
I think you wrote down the passage of time by decade, really well. As grandparents pass away, you really feel the hole left by them, how much impact they had on your family. Also, that its the ultimate end point for you, if you happen to be lucky and live your life well.
The Graysonian Ethic
I bought a copy. Its a thoughtful read so far. Good job.
Yes, you are right about pollution, esp heavy metals. I have that in mind.
I also have several large lakes nearby. None of them are near factories.
I absolutely, 100% agree. All of our life's struggles and hard work get passed on to the next generation. Maybe that is the real kingdom of heaven/hell. The world we leave behind.
Did you publish your book ?
A war with Russia is possibly going to be the last war... ever.
Its clear that Ukraine is just an excuse. Biden didn't give a shit about letting the Afghans die.
Let the Ukrainians fight for their own country. A large part of the country is Russia sympathetic and will defect. That's 100% on the Ukranian govt/people for dividing their country
Its a stupid reason to end the world.
Well, bad news and good news. Bad is that most people are too brainwashed, lazy or sheep.
Good news is that even one person can save the world. That's the truth throughout history.
One sane person is enough. Luckily, today we have at least 10-20% of people who have sense and courage.
What do you mean ? I live close to a river, so maybe your situation is different.
For water, I can put together a basic gravel, activated filter to remove large particles. I can just boil it after that.
You can also disinfect water by just putting it in a plastic bottle out in the sun. Although if there is a nuclear winter.......
I think I will get some copper jars to passively disinfect the water as well.
Oh.... yeah.... you are right, that's deffo going to happen. Repubs will win, but part will get a lot of fakers.
Oz is a prime example. But that fucker has already been exposed.
I guess you have ready to eat stuff. I don't have storage capacity atm, so my stock is more dense stuff that needs cooking: rice, potatoes, flour.
My big worry is if power fails for a long time. I have portable gas supply, coal and firewood. I think I could cook for maybe 4 months or so without power.
I am thinking about getting a small DC motor/inverter + battery setup to hook up to a bicycle to generate ~400Wh of electricity per day.... as a last resort.
I think I am worrying too much. Even if there is a nuclear winter, coal/nuclear/hydro should still provide a minimum electricity to people, enough for eating.
Never hurts to be prepared though.
It shouldn't be. You can try to pull such a large scale scam only once. The blowback from 2020 has most battlegrounds - Az, Ga etc pretty well prepped.
The most reliable give is the dems who are all resigning en masse. These are the insiders, who would have stayed on the gravy train if it was viable. If they have given up hope, then that means that the rich donors have pulled out, and strategists/pollsters know what's coming.
The money is betting against the dems.
Oh, I see. Yes, I understand what you mean. I agree.
People are very unaware of who they really are, and how they behave vs their imagination of themselves. They also don't understand their own motivations and needs.
I don't think religious people are any smarter, but they have a huge advantage with the religious superstructure that keeps their psychology grounded much better.
We really owe a huge debt to our ancestors for making and passing on such systems for us.
Things should start to stabilise this year if we don't start a war with Russia. Midterms.
Cuckerburg and co. pretending Second Life isn't a thing, since the last 2 decades.
Classic case of "Second Life already did that"
There are plenty of MMOs which are freer and good alternatives to Meta.
And seeing how badly Facebook's demographics have shifted from young ppl to grandmas, its really unlikely the company is going to succeed with Meta.
Biden wasn't, I fully agree. They rigged the thing from top to bottom. I think Covid was probably part of the plan, seeing Trump's trade war with China
This was DC's mayor, one of the worst, on par with Chicago's moron Lightfoot and NY's DeBlasio
Good luck to you. May God be merciful on those who elected this moron.
