  1. Chloroquine for the win?

      I'd say clinical trials for the win. This isn't a movie, there's no magic bullet.

  2. Since I'm too broke to buy Doom Eternal at midnight, I'm going to do the next best thing and buy Doom 64 on the eshop at midnight.

  3. The lockdown isn't here yet, but when it gets here.. Blanket Fort time!!

  4. Things you do when you're bored: look up the dimensions of an Atari 5200 and how many people you could fit inside after you have cremated them. I believe the answer is the ashes of 3-4 people.

      Swedes, maybe. I want to know how many obese Americans would fit. I guess bone density would be similar and the adipose would burn off? More research is needed.

  5. All schools in Wales are closing on Friday until further notice. My baby sitting duties just increased.

  6. I had zero interest in VR... until now.  Definitely want to find a way to try first, but it certainly has my interest: https://vrscout.com/news/panzer-dragoon-returning-as-vr-game/

  7. Got a new computer.  Old one konked out again...  wish I had saved a lot of files off of it.  Will need to see if I can find one of those cables that can connect to a hard drive via USB.

  8. A little project i am backing; new walkman with good sound quality: 

     

  9. I've never seen so much overreaction in such short of time. Everything closes. If we don't die of the virus, we'll die of boredom.

      It's like Y2K. If there's no major impact to you personally, it's in no small part BECAUSE of the "overreaction" of others.

  10. Suddenly everyone is using this virus as an opportunity to post condescending messages to wash their hands, like some snooty parent. C'mon you were posting memes last week. 

  11. We humans sure do like to watch sports ball on our moving picture rectangles, don't we?

  12. JFK assassination researcher says that there was a second Oswald running around (a lookalike).

      @GoldLeader Sorry to be insensitive to that ... this is going to be a big hit on the economy and I agree that not everyone has the luxury of staying the fsck home.

  13. Off to get some more internal titanium and plastic body mods installed tomorrow. Neck last June, right knee now, left knee as soon as possible after that. Lower back when I can't stand it any more. Old sucks.

     

    I'm definitely paying for TSA pre-check when I can travel again.

      Good luck with the new parts! What's up with your neck? I had ACDF with a cadaver bone inserted about 5 years ago.

      There's a visual I could do without. 
       

      There's a Dremel tool with Keatah's name on it.

  15. Is it time to sell off the stock portfolio before it loses another 5-10k or more like it's 2008 all over again?  Or would that be alarmist? 

    1. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      I think it would be alarmist to sell now. Stop looking at your stocks, the virus situation is temporary and will eventually self-correct. Just like in 2008.

  16. I was just reading a 1997 review article. for a 2GB flash drive for $500. Flash memory is over 1000x cheaper now than it was in 1997.

      I feel like the sweet spot for PC gaming is always around $1200 -- more if you want it to last longer, less if you want to save money. But I'm grateful that almost everything else is getting more affordable. Yay sweatshops! Oh wait ...

  17. The big mountain in arcade Lunar Lander is named Malapert Massif, and the crater to the right of it is named Haworth Crater.

  18. (Deep breath,  here goes) The Internet (for purchases) kind of sucks! Sure you have eBay and Amazon, but what else?  Where are all the "other" auction sites? (And pay per bid sites with limited selection do Not Count).  Ever see the ads at the bottom of ebay?  Whatever obscurity you just searched for, there are now 6 sites claiming you can get it  for 70% off!  No You Can't!!!!  Ever click?  They are either Search Engines to Other Search Engines or they take you back to eBay like you've never heard of that...Didn't think to look there, even though that's where you just were!

      Goodwill is somewhat interesting for collectible stuff. I agree with @Kobra Kai about Buy It Now. I don't have much interest in the drama of auctions unless I'm the seller. 

       

      I like my local Micro Center for computer equipment, especially with the 18 minute pickup feature. NewEgg is another store I like. Dell Outlet sometimes has good prices on whole systems like laptops. 

       

      I download all my video games, mostly GOG, Steam, and eShop. A little Microsoft and Playstation once in a increasingly long time. Free stuff from Epic, Origin. 

       

      Buying less stuff is my latest goal.

  19. Windows 10 is still an inhomogeneous mess that's uncomfortable to use.

      Just keep it off the internet if you want to run like that!

  20. Windows 10 is still an inhomogeneous mess that's uncomfortable to use.

    1. Flojomojo

      Flojomojo

      Maybe you mean heterogeneous. The thing is more evolved than designed, like Windows NT with a (sometimes) slick graphical theme. It runs some games I like and it's ubiquitous, which is why I tolerate it in many places. We all have choices. It's not the only OS in the world.

  22. It's a week after Mardi Gras, and as usual, the whole town is sick--I'm home with a nasty cough. No official word if the town caught the new virus.

  23. When did 'unpack' become a word that almost everyone says now? How did it get packed and why do I need to unpack it?

      Aww, I missed the morning conversation about corporate douchespeak. What I need to know is this: what do they think of this in Green Bay, Wisconsin?
