just got white Andro. Owned 2 greens before and I think the white ones are safer: more even response, less agressive but still excting. ymmv Jan 11, 2023

        I tried to find a thread to post this in but all the tech ones were pretty specific. Would a new 'Misc Tech Chat" thread be something that you would appreciate?

        I use a camera lens blow-bulb. My keyboard is still yucky. It would be great if others can offer advice.

        Use a soft paintbrush and a blower as just mentioned.

        Cloth: must be microfibre. Miracle material that makes everything better. And even the cheap stuff works.

        The bad news: it seems that micro fragments from microfibre are bad for the environment. Hey ho, sometimes seems like we can't win these days

        On the contrary. Experience and fading patience just mean you can see and feel it more.

        If you're talking professional environments then there's the "Peter principle" which observes that people tend to be promoted just beyond their level of competence, and reside there failing forever more.

        One of my old bosses used to sit in meetings blandly smiling close-mouthed, with his eyes closed and his arms crossed. I was (still am) close to him. So I asked him what he's thinking about during meetings. He said, "Sometimes, I'm just relaxing and enjoying the discussion. Other times, I'm accepting that I don't control the discussion."

        I use Wise (nee Transferwise) to send money from GB to India. They changed their name quite some time back.

        Yes, it is a good service. But it is aimed at financial transfer only, and I don't think there are any buyer/seller mechanisms or protections built in.

        I think that'd mean UPS sending it to their local CBSA office and you going in there for paperwork, duty payment & pickup (how close to you?). Been 20 years since I did that myself, so maybe wait for other replies in the thread before deciding - but personally, I wouldn't take the time over the $80...

        This reminds me I should stop complaining about shipping across the Pacific, as customs is generally simple and not that expensive here. When/If I move back to Canada, it could be more PITA getting stuff in from the US, now that I've found a reliable and economical forwarder specializing in Taiwan.

        Really hope this doesn't turn into a trilogy, even though there's a clause that nearly guarantees it. I want to see Wilder eat more humble pie, and take his next L to build up a more honorable, lesser known fighter.

        @purr1n was about to tag you actually, since I saw you posted that HD580 will sound differently depends on how worn the pad is. Mine is 90% gone and I actually like it that way. Super close to the ear = a much more exciting and "dynamic" sound for me. Put on new pads and the energy's gone but I had to do it, old worn pads were pretty gross.

        I was going to try messing around with my 2002 HD580 but every time I put them on I find myself thinking it's not worth messing with -no mod will magically bring more bass extension and reduce distortion - that's just how the driver is. The rest doesn't need 'fixing'. Synergy is more important.

        @E_Schaaf I do feel that Bill's mod makes it sounds less grainy (foam removal maybe?) but the HD600/HD650 grill also makes 580 become more gentle than I'd like.
        But I do agree is synergy is more important, though I have a hard time imagining 580 would sound outright bad on any system.

        As others have said, change all your relevant passwords. Create unique 12+ character passwords that have random letters, numbers, and special characters and use a password manager to retrieve them when needed

        TURN ON 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION for your Apple ID and anything else that supports it

        Yes, turn on 2FA. I use Macs, but Androids. Use separate email addresses/account names for different accounts.

        Most importantly: use a password manager! Distinct passwords for every site.

        Without 2FA, the only protection you have is password length. 20+ characters if the site'll let you. If they don't, be wary because they're likely not properly storing your password.
