The worst part about doing things on-line is the fact that you need accounts for even tiny things. You will fill a book with accounts... Jul 22, 2021 at 8:59 AM

        @Ksaurav402 But that locks you further into google / facebook I know people who wanted to quit Facebook, and ended up being locked out of unrelated websites.

        @JustAnotherRando Lastpass family has been a great investment. Without much effort, we end up with form auto-filling of name+address+etc, secure logins for every site, two factor authentication with physical keys, password sharing in family and only one password to remember per person.

      Lost my AKG K181 DJ. Took a ride on the metro a few days later, in-ears in. Nope, I need more bass and more passive isolation. Bass is good.

        Carbs are something I wish I had some more experience with. Buddy of mine and I refurbed a Yamaha XJ750. Tuning the 3x carbs was a nightmare. Never ran right (well, never perfectly), but the yammy 750 sound is soo gooood.

      More relaxed, plans are progressing. I should've cared less earlier about many things. Why bother when people don't appreciate the effort?

        Totally speaking my language. I have a tendency to stay in relationships long after they've stopped serving me and jobs are certainly one of those domains.

        It is amazing how long it takes to figure out what things in one's life aren't worth the extra effort or attention, and which ones are truly worth it.

        I work in hospitality. Some new-to-hospitality "colleagues" told me to be more like them. Yeah, fuck no. You do not survive the grind by leaving a mess. Amsterdam can be harsh when you fail to clean up your mess. About 10-ish years of hospitality, if they even knew the B.S. I had to survive...

        Always pay attention to how the cleaning crew/cleaners are treated. I used to be part of that group. No matter how fancy or expensive, treat those people poorly and there will always be issues. It is there that you learn to outlast your managers...

        I have to be on time. Make your deals too late and the moment the economy recovers all the prices jump up. A few steps remain and I can focus on the long-term again...

        If you pay taxes on the land does that mean you really own the house, though? But yeah it seems acquisition is hellish in some places right now; quite the contrary in others.

        Depends on which city. I lived in tough cities for 40 years. Yeah, it toughened me up. But it also broke me a few times. Raleigh, with its metro area of 1 million, is a sleepy town—but I'll take it!

        The great part about lenovo is the ability to repair. If you end up upgrading, I have the T480 after upgrading from a T440. I think it is a nice upgrade and still keeps the good of the earlier line of thinkpads.

        I will make a budget for a T440 or something smaller with HD screen and HDMI-out. Otherwise I have to look for a W-series workhorse.
