    Being in IT, I get where they're coming from. The money you same from things being in warranty is great. You have a problem, call Dell and they'll send out a tech to do all the work for you while you can focus on the other bigger tasks. If you don't have that, then you have to troubleshoot the hardware (which can take a very long time), identify what piece is dying, buy it, wait for it to ship, then find the time to install it. By that point you're hoping that it was the proper fix. From a hardware enthusiasts perspective it makes no sense to them to go the warranty route, because why not good it yourself? But from a business standpoint it makes a lot more sense. You save time and money from replacing shit by having someone come out and do it for you.

    Not only that, hardware vulnerabilities can pop up here and there, and replacing hardware keeps that chance more minimal. Software vulnerabilities can be patched pretty easily, not hardware ones (ie Spectre/meltdown). There were patches for them that mitigate the situation, but now that a hardware exploit is out there it will be very hard to keep 100% secure on a software level.

    I use this tea tree shampoo that I can't remember the brand of, and I'm at work so I can't check. I have dandruff problems and long hair for a guy. It works pretty well, but I only wash my hair 2 times max a week, any more than that cause my dandruff to go on a rampage.

    Welcome to game freak development. They're some of the laziest devs. You'd think being the biggest franchise in the world would mean they'd give a shit. But nope, the complete opposite.

    I read this comment to my brother and we both started singing fhqwhgads and quoting the mothers day short where strong bad loses a bet. I think I still have my da cheet shirt from when I was younger and my brother has his strong bad one somewhere too. The web series is top notch.

    Alienware has a 55in 4k oled (I think) monitor that has no smart features. Pricey, but I think worth it.

    I've heard that about c++. That's why I'm just learning the basics. From what I understand c# is based on c++, so my thinking was learn the skeleton a little to have a better understanding of the full body. Like drawing kinda. When I was doing that I took a basic anatomy course which helped quite a bit.

    Not very far. Maybe like ~1 hour. It's alright, it will get me started. I'd like to see if there's anything else people can recommend for online courses. I've tried getting into coding before, but I didn't have the urge/patience to get past the first lesson. It's going better now that I'm willing/wanting to learn it.

    Well to start off it will be super basic shapes moving on a screen and getting them to interact with each other. I like games that are relaxing to play with no stress/skill required really. Games like Animal Crossing, abzu, mini metro, and baba is you where you don't have to worry about much. There's no real threat, you're just kinda doing your own thing, you know? I'm not really into the big expansive open world games. They give me too much anxiety.

    it's not directed at them and we obviously had no ill intent when we were laughing. if it's not directed at you ignore it, unless it is obviously to hurt someone.

    White supremacy is a political ideology though. However there are ethical issues in the ideology. There can be non violent white supremacists. A political group is trying to make the media believe that they are influenced by some guy making jokes.

    Anyway, PDP has said, "I am in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes." And even in the same post, "to anyone unsure on my standpoint regarding hate-based groups: No, I don’t support these people in any way."

    Even still, you think he doesn't understand that what he says has an impact? Why do you think he's worked so hard to move away from that kind of content? All his content now is just Minecraft bullshit and him looking at posts on his subreddit. Plus do you think all his charity streams and donations to organizations were inaction? The dude is doing his best while still trying to maintain himself. No one has been is his situation before, so he has to learn as he goes.
