        Thanks tommytakis! You've been super friendly to me, and I've appreciated that :)

        That bar/pub analogy is great: know what you're getting into (lol yeah, not a bank), come in, introduce yourself, be kind and cordial and listen to get a feel for the culture, and slowly get to know people and start contributing yourself. I still have a long ways to go too, but it’s been rewarding so far. Thanks again guys!

        All I'm gonna say is you're a nice person and use a screencap from Nichijou (I think?? haven't seen it in years) for your profile photo— you're good in my books.

        Yeah!! It's a screencap from ep1 of Nichijou, when Yuuko gets hit by the red cow - super happy you recognize it! (here's the only clip I could find on youtube, in case anyone's interested: https://youtu.be/DFOr1xV8pcg?t=207)

      I made it this far without being a friend, but more importantly without donating. Fixed that just now, thanks for everything guys.

      Seems like everyone is trying to start "black friday" sales earlier and earlier. Almost seems like a race to the bottom...

        I forget the details, but it was a day on which really bad economic things happened, right? Bit weird to celebrate it.

        No, it's the day that their budgets go from red to black. As in finally profitable.

        It's their financials rather than their budgets. Sorry, accounting OCD kicking in.

      AirPods Pro just announced. Noise cancellation, "adaptive EQ", uses silicone tips. Lots of cool software features/tuning, seems cool!

        I've never been this excited about an apple product. I'm hoping these will be my EDC along with the JVC FDx1 for studying and working out!

        Lol wait, that's exactly my plan too, exactly right down to the JVC FDx1 for studying, and the airpod pros for EDC. Really hoping they sound pretty good/keep the convenience that regular airpods have (easy pop-in/pop-out). Let me know your thoughts when you receive them!

        The silicon tips are def a step forward. The old model is so uncomfortable to my ears.

        What sucks more is I’m fighting to get my money back. They did send me an email telling me what local centers we can go to if the power goes out.

        What kinda stuff are you losing money on? I know I'll have to throw out all of my food because of this.. I can imagine other people having it a lot worse though (esp those with medical problems who need the power). I believe you can for sure request a refund if you're out of power for 48 hours or something. Hoping that those local centers are well-stocked and prepared for you, and you take care man this weekend.

        Two nights non-refundable at Silverado Resort. I called. Power is still on in the unit. But they cut power to a friend in Yountville about 6 with no notice. We just decided it was stupid to drive into an emergency situation. Plus two tickets to Lewis Black. I’m still asking for a refund. You take care too. I can’t imagine what people with medical problems are going through.

      "Sound and Color" by Alabama Shakes was the song that got me into audio way back in 2015. Listening to it now still gives me the chills.

      Looks like there may be another PG&E power shutoff this Saturday due to dry and high-winds throughout the bay area. Take care everyone.
