Is this what happens to coders who pull 72 hour programming binges?

No, that's what LSD ingestion looks like :)

I'll take your word for it Doc!  All that Timothy Leary and magic sugar cube stuff was big when I was a youngster out of the country.

Woah.. << this Ebay listing >> looks too good to be true...

 

I mean really, a brand name 128GB class 10 micro SD card delivered to your home for only $9.98?  I simply cannot believe it.

Beware of ANY mass storage media with a price that far below market. What you are getting is a much smaller device hacked to show your OS that it is a larger device. Everything works great, until you start saving data into the black hole that is the majority of the device's storage space. All of that black holed data will be lost--with zero chance of recovery, as it was written to nowhere.

 

The media is probably only an 8GB device (some are 16). There are programs out there to test them by doing a write to every sector and logging the results. With these, the results aren't pretty--and eBay will only force the seller to refund your money, they don't stop them from selling them (experience speaking here). By the time most customers realize they've been screwed, it is too late to file a complaint. . .

looks too good to be true...

 

Hmm.. a seller with zero rated transactions, selling something below value, sending said items without tracking info... from Singapore.  I'm a little skeptical.  You know what they say about "too good to be true"...

I reported it. Maybe eBay will one day be proactive with these sellers. It's their reputation on the line afterall.

If you save money or buy chinese stuff, you often pay twice.

That´s what I have learned

Nostalgia revisited: ripping YouTube sound tracks to audio cassettes using Chromecast Audio to send the music over to the Sony amplifier and from there to the cassette deck :) Why??? Just for fun! Also you'll be surprised how well cassettes actually sound on a good audio system...

I found this on another part of AtariAge.  I thought Rasmus and some of you guys that play Super TI Mario Brothers might find this funny.
