    You should encrypt your files if they are so sensitive. It only takes one disgruntled Dropbox employee to screw you over. But then you have to remember to store the key in a secure location.

    Bought a Microsoft Surface Book with performance base, and a ton of accessories. The accessories have arrived. Still waiting on the actual device.
    I can't wait for the day schools get the money they need, and the military has to hold bake sales to afford bombs.

    I got a second hand Arturia Microbrute, but I think I should have maybe got a Monologue instead.

    Yeah, at one point I considered buying the revival version of the Korg MS-20 (due to using the MS-20 VST quite a lot), but I didn't since the real deal is monophonic only. Oy.

    What are your favorite VSTs? And which DAW is the hottest today?

    I'm the wrong person to answer those questions, Reid, but my top 3 favorite VSTs are pretty much Roland Cloud D-50, z3ta 2+ and KORG MS-20. And I'm still using Fruity Loops after 13 years.

    Bought this yesterday:

    I know nothing about DAWs because I'm a luddite that hates looking at screens.

    Do you pay the monthly fee for the Roland VST? Seems expensive to me

    Yeah, I do. I hate cloud subscriptions and their monthly fees. At least, for the moment anyway, after 12 months of monthly Roland subscribing you can claim one of the VSTs for good (so no more monthly fees). ... Still ends up cheaper than trying to get a real Roland D-50 and getting it to work and everything!

    But yeah, there will be no more wacky FGR videos once Adobe pulls the plug for Creative Suite 5.1 for good, and they'd try to force me to use Adobe Cloud F***s***crap instead. No chance, Lance.

    After about a month and a bunch of problems with Microsoft's ordering system, I finally got my Surface Book. I'm really enjoying it.

    True that.. music equipment is expensive. I'll consider picking up the Roland D-50 vst because.. well it's pretty iconic and, in the videos I found, it sounded very nice.

    4 tickets to Blade Runner 2049 (for like 64 € total, geez!)

    Speaking of which:

    Did you know that there's a Deus Ex mod titled 2027, that started production in 2004 or so? And did you know that Deus Ex: Human Revolution (released in 2011) takes place in 2027?

    Now that's a coincidence.

    On that note, I wonder which Deus Ex mod takes place in 2049...

    . . .

    ... there better be a ham sandwich in this film.

    I bought a Fender Paramount PM-3, one of the limited edition ones for silly cheap money just after christmas.

    Which is still more recent than the last post on this thread.

    It's good!

    I found a set of two Aisin locking hubs in a salvage yard and got them for $20. I also found a farm jack in the back of a wrecked truck and got it for $5. Gotta love wrecking yards.

    Picked these items up at a local discount store (that I generally hate to go to).

    Last I checked the cars toy retails for about $200 and the wheel setup for over $400.

    I've ordered this shifter from Amazon to compliment the wheel.

    Thinkpad T580



    Finally I can play some modern games, like Doom or Tomb Raider. It hasn't got the fastest graphics card, but it suffices.

    Copy of the Grothendieck-Serre Correspondance and a wifi card which supports packet injection.

    Also Europa Universalis 4 expansions & Hearts of Iron IV, for some pseudohistorical nationalism.

    prolly not dude.

    after having what was nearly life threatening food poisoning, literally fever dream level, i promise you dont want to take the risk.

  31. #3471
    Oh ****! I gave it a whiff, and sipped a little bit of it, and concluded it was little sour. I put a little bit in my tea, but I threw the rest out. Hopefully I don't get life threatening food poisoning!

    Yeah food poisoning from expired dairy really isn't fun. You tend to get dysentery.

    The first time I actually got a deal out of Prime Day. A Nokia 6 2018 and a 128 GB micro SD card.



    I know that there are cheaper phones with better specs (even with the discount). But so far HMD Global seems to do quite well with software updates, one of the things that annoyed me the most with Android devices. And this one is an Android One device, so hopefully this will make it even easier for them to keep up with updates.

    Goddamn Fujitech UH3041 USB 3.0 hub, cost me about 13 euros and when I plug it into my computer - and my main external SSD into the hub - the hub will eventually disconnect at random (which usually shows up as the Windows Explorer window for the hard drive opening up), making it practically useless.

    Oh well.

    When ur duct tape gets gross, do you peel it off and clean the gunk, or do you just put on another layer

    By now (after 7-9 years) there must be enough layers on it for me to actually peel some of it off before pasting in a new layer, but that'd be effort - so always moar duct tape
