Cold and snow appeared in Amsterdam. The snow tends to melt while the cold stays. So much for snow... Dec 9, 2017 at 6:24 PM

      New Lenovos might be good. An old T420 with upgrades is still a good deal. New Lenovo, it is a good machine. Now customising it...

        I heard build quality went down after 20 and 30 series. I'm still rocking an X220 without signs of failing, except for the battery which is to be expected.

        6 cores on mobile is just around the corner. But yes Thinkpads are great. Father has some from the IBM era.

        ThinkPad or better. ThinkPads do so many things right without going Apple in the pricing.

      December not my favourite month. Counting the days and listening to music. Best thing about this month: burn the past and meet friends...

        Deep breath, man. On these long, dark, tiring days you can come home to the warm glow of tubes and your favourite tunes. Your secret weapon.

        Oh fuck. I forgot that scrolling with the Surface Pro has a slight delay. The S.B.A.F. site works, my brains needed to re-adjust. Sorry.

      It is strange how I finally appreciate Lady Gaga. She really made Pop fun again. Just like Prince she set things off...

        Unfortunately her output became far too spotty after The Fame Monster. Many more misses than hits.

        I agree. I think her output became marginally more spotty, but I still really like Born This Way and Artpop, only Joanne really went off the rails,

        The Fame Monster was awesome, Born this way was ok at best, Artpop was good, and Joanne I found to be well, really "off".

      Reading "Alice In Wonderland" these days. The silliness of that story does not fit on the silver screen. Some dialogues are quite absurd...

        @Kunlun, I just worry that you might have a hidden agenda when talking about mice. Like, less interested in their taste in literature, more interested in their... taste.

        Maybe that is why Douglas Adams made mice the powerful species next to the dolphins in his trilogy of five parts. And if that confuses you, 42.

        I don't think that ABP is entirely ready to go "out of the box." One has to find and load the filters that result in a www free of facebook/twitter/etc, getting rid of all those horrible icons from everywhere. And, I realise it is an extreme example (and a site I don't visit now anyway) but how could anyone visit HeadFi without doing major element-hider work!

        @Thad E Ginathom - ABP is a bit crappy and evil. uBlock Origin is a good drop-in replacement, fwiw.

        Well, I'm too lasy to change stuff like that unless I'm forced to, but as FireFoxe's days in my house are numbered, the future is an open book. ...or a different car park. Or something.

      After three days without coffee I now limit myself to one per day. A good tea or smoothie can be just as good. Still craving cappuccinos...

        Oh @jexby you flirtatious little rat. I love all good coffee but espresso and delightful whole milk is my breakfast of champions. And maybe a banana on my hour long commute. I know, my habits aren't great.

      Two days no coffee. Sometimes I drank coffee just for the energy boost to numb my aching muscles. Aching muscles keep you even more awake...

        Caffeine sensitivity (causes palpitations) + personal reaction to coffee means I don't drink coffee cause it keeps me awake but useless since I can't concentrate.

        I have to use some automated soft sometimes that runs for good 10 min at a time. Key thing is to turn the monitor towards coworkers, then it's safe to pass out for 15 min.

        I would think you'd be able to grab an HDMI adapter for $10 or so if you plan to use the surface pro for very long, no? Or maybe it's not a priority...
