Feeling kind of sad after finishing Naruto parts 1 & 2, unexpected emotional attachment. I get the sense that Boruto isn't nearly as good. Jun 4, 2024

      Got years of ear wax flushed out at doc's office. Oh my lord, all I can hear now is sibilance! Hopefully will abate in a few days...

      PSA: Body Mist sprays make effective and efficient bathroom air fresheners. Better than non-aerosol air fresheners (recent Glade products).

      US NFL: I could root for any of the 4 teams who may end up playing in the Super Bowl, would be interesting to have a Ravens - 49ers rematch

        Packers fan here, with Ravens as the AFC team I occasionally root for. Give me a Ravens over Lions Super Bowl! I want the 49ers to lose more than the Lions at this point.

        I have only briefly used a colleague's Air 2 S, but will just put out there that I have seen deals on the Mini 3 that would make more sense than getting a Mini 2 SE, especially if features and image quality are important. If you are just trying to fly something, there are cheaper alternatives that won't hurt as bad if you crash.

      Say what you will about "Deadwind" on Netflix, but S3 has great Porsche Taycan representation.

        Saw a Taycan on the road here for the first time the other day. Thought it was a Panamera till I noticed it had no exhaust pipes. I'd rather have a 911 personally, but in reality I will never own either.

        911s are now like Rolex sport watches - lucky if they let you buy one (waitlists) especially if new to the brand. But I'm with you.

        Thankfully our state university (Maryland) is pretty good and has a competitive Biology program. She's fine with that and understands finances will dictate final choice. But if she receives a generous aid package that doesn't involve much future debt, would love to give her the opportunity to experience a smaller research-oriented school around a large city.

        Identity and social context are too easy to abuse these days. Hard work and emancipation are often skipped in favour of claiming some kind of unfairness. Instead of learning from history we get cancel-culture because "unfair = cancel" and context is thrown out. The last 70 years the world changed faster than most people realised.

        Thinking of getting a real USB mic to use in place of the puck supplied with the Onkyo, lots of reading/watching to do in order to learn how the app (using MacOS) should be used for adjusting frequencies.

        Umik-1 is great, comes with calibration files for 0 and 90 degrees. You’re right there is a learning curve, the mic and a proper stand helps a ton though.

        They are the Slayer of the 21st century with better sound quality live and on recordings. If I can justify it, some day I will return to the mosh-pit for their music.
