        Deciding to either laugh or cry. I will settle for a stoic grin and keep a cash reserve.

        @Deep Funk better make that silver/gold reserve (at least a little bit). All the world's currencies are fiat.

        But trading them is fun.

        It's Wikipedia. While factual (can be a matter of contention), articles on there don't go through any rigorous vetting beyond what the community itself imposes upon them. Hardly objective.

        That said, I do use them as a quick reference for more obscure things sometimes.

        Might not be a popular opinion, but in those times I had little sympathy for those celebs; they make enough money to replace their stuff. Seriously, what about the other more "regular" people huh?

        A simple thing to start with would be a bi-weekly or monthly review of some new piece of audio-gear, brutally honest in video format. Think of I.F. in the Tyll-era. Even as a noob I would watch those old I.F. reviews because Tyll combined science and his own biases to really explain what made something work for him (or not for that matter!). Adds a slightly edu-tainment edge to our silly place.

        Better than calling it "Project Thanatos", Thanos was about snapping his finger and de-population. Thanatos picked you up after death like, "Dude, come to Hades and no, sucks to have your fate."

        @YMO This is prioritizing and it seems they have set certain goals regarding privacy. @Psalmanazar Apple computers were great when I used them 7 years ago. Glitch free and the best intuitive interface with useful extra features like windows spread, multiple workspaces, proper smooth scrolling. The White Macbook was quite good. I did not find much use for my iMac though.
