Going back to my security architecture diagrams and renaming whitelist and blacklist to less racist terms. I'm doing my part. Are you? Jul 3, 2020 at 11:02 PM

        Whereas things-with-moving-parts are usually the least subject to denial that things sound different (it's hard to deny!) where blind tests for transducers come in handy is "Which do you like the best without knowing the label or the price."

        All good stuff. And damned hard work. I just buy stuff I like the colour of ;)

        I support old-fashioned, toweling diapers (nappies, as we Brits call them). But then they tell me that the detergent and fuel used in washing them is just as harmful. The answer is: put baby outside to crap in the street.

      Don't know what's worse: Weezer covering Black Sabbath or Weezer covering MJ. They don't take themselves seriously, but some things sacred.

        If you cover MJ or Nirvana give it your all. Alien Ant Farm was fun. Patty Smith was legendary. If you want to cover Black Sabbath and MJ you cannot Toto through it. Go balls out and own it...

        It's super stressful deciding on the plan, and then what it covers, then the cost of premiums/deductibles/etc. So remove that stressor with UHC. This illusion of choice on what crummier mickey mouse health insurance you can get is a false freedom. You would be freer if you didn't have to worry about such stuff. And hey corporations/small biz would be happier to get out of employer-based insurance too.

        Quite frankly, I just wanted my old plan back. The private plans were never a stressor, I didn't want gov't helping me. We had long terms savings, being cheap on a lot of stuff. The stressor only cames when gov't with good intentions tried to help, imposed help, but instead maked everything more expensive with less choice. The good thing is some of this has been fixed, years after the fact.

        Apple used to be okay. Thing is all the hipsters and climate awareness sheeple still fall for shiny Apple products with planned obsolescence awaiting them and fashion products that have a short life-span.

        It boggles my mind. "Look how shiny!" "Save the planet!"

        Yet another thing about Apple I didn't know: that they are supposed to score environment points?

        Plainly, though, there's a lot I don't know about Apple kit, because it doesn't interest me. How, for instance, does it score on repairability?

        He’s garnered quite a few votes of people that voted for his father, the fringes of society, and minorities/refugees that reap the benefits of the welfare/social assistance system. While Veterans that have served are left homeless and without support. He knows who to target for votes, that’s about all he’s good for.

        There's a reason I left Canada. I love Toronto, but in the job interviews there, I always got this sense of "oh, you little yellow person" while the elite ruled from their secret underground lair under the Toronto City Hall dome. Hard to explain, just a sense. I actually felt London was more of a meritocracy, like the US. Except with much less working and living space.

        I can one-up you. Semi-private (grey) organisations that operate in public functions but have no or little obligation to report to anyone. In NL alone these organisations are a source of many issues. At worst they receive partial funding from the tax-payer. They are fun...

        For the guy thats aligned a few carts and understands VTA, I don't see how the SOL is much different than many other high end TTs, except the price. I seem to remember the Linn Sondek being one that was a pain to dial in correctly. But I haven't set up a TT since the mid 90s when I set up a SOTA for a buddy.

    Ears validate the measurements, not the other way. Well, sometimes the measurements keep us honest.
