Re: skynet

Years ago, on an Abit board I think, was a spot for a chip. The chip wasn't there. But the label was silk screened where the chip would be. It was labeled "bigbro".

Our overlords are just higher tech now.

Re: New to Linux - HTPC/Plex server

I have a CentOS 7.5 server to hold all my media. It also has my TV card in it. It's an old Hauppauge card, I forget exactly which model. I had to upgrade to a newer kernel to get it running. The server has NFS mounts on it to send out the media to the network. I use an ODroid C2 running Coreelec to ...

Re: What are you drinking RIGHT NOW?

A shaker bottle of Espresso Fit Frappe. It's basically an instant breakfast drink with 200mg of caffeine in it. I added some Kahlua as it's snowing and the gov has closed for the day.

Re: Winter weather

I am good down to about 50F. Then I put the top up. If it gets to 45F, I'll roll the windows up if the top is already down.

Today when I left for work it was a wind chill of -11F. So it was an actual 8f with 20+mph wind gusts.

The top and windows stayed up.

Re: Gun prOn!

I use Aguila SuperExtra 22LR in my Beretta ARX160. The rifle says it calls for high velocity ammo. The Aguila is standard velocity and I've fired hundreds of rounds of it with no cycling issues. I've used various calibers of Aguila and it works well. Though, some of the types smell a bit weird when ...

Re: Almost 20 years

I remember going to a meet in Northern VA at a restaurant. I got there first. I had to say with a straight face "Reservation for United Gerbil Nation" (or some such, it's been a while). There were a good amount of us there, including Kevin, who was in the area on business. We also shot up ...

Re: Carry Me Back to Old Virginia

Bummer. I have a Toyota meet that day and my Spyder has to help represent the mid-engined convertibles.

I would advise anyone that can go, to go. Kevin and Darkmage are quite fun to hang out with.

My step-mom in NC almost lost her hand to a copperhead bite a few years ago. She was gardening and the snake got her right on the fleshy part by her thumb.
