Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Yeah, those days are not good. I actually kind of enjoyed the slow grind of ecommerce where it seems like everything's going at a snails pace and nothing is getting done, but not enough to deal with the fire drills and downtime that go along with it. Curious what's up at Amazon though. It's got to b...

I think bringing in so many new characters was kind of an admission that the show wasn't doing so great previously. It seemed like bringing Lennie James into the cast helped a lot with that. I cut the cord about a month ago, and Fear didn't make the cut for me as a show I'd go out of my way to keep ...

It's been years since I've been to a fast food place, and honestly I don't plan on going any time soon, but that's good to know I guess.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a considerable number of people here in CA searching for quinoa recipes, but yeah it does seem a little hit or miss. I don't really have anything against quinoa its self. It's just on the same level as avocado toast now as something trendy.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

My first attempt at making pizza dough went reasonably well. I'm glad I opted for the bread flour instead of just using general all purpose flour. I think that probably made a big difference. Next time I'll use less olive oil, more water and kneed the dough more before leaving it to proof. I also en...

Re: 16/0 True cores 1% faster then 16/32threads. Threadripper

You may find that it's not so easy to find an "optimal" number of threads for encoding(and probably for many other tasks as well). Optimal in terms of "this is the best this application can do", and "this is the best my leet CPU can do" can often be different things.
