These days, I'm happiest with a MacBook Pro keyboard. Go figure.

Really? I have a 2017 Macbook Pro with the butterfly keyboard and it drives me nuts! Its constantly sticking and encouraging me to use excessive amounts of profanity and hit it with a hammer!

My last MBP butterfly keyboard started double-striking. Plus, I noticed the case was getting thicker - which I presumed was a battery bulge issue. I took it in to get looked at, and Apple decided they’d just swap it for new 16”. Across the board.

After they made that offer, I asked if I could pay the diff between the price of the system that they offered, and what I wanted, and they said yeah.
2.4GHz 5G Turbo 8-core i9
64 GB Mem
Upgraded graphics with 8GB VRAM
4 TB SSD.

Not too shabby.

AppleCare FTW. Apple doesn’t seem to make stuff that is less failure-prone than other top tier vendors, but they stand behind the product.

Still fail to see how that's worse than current default DNS hijacking by ISPs?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNS_hijacking#Manipulation_by_ISPs
Centralized. FBI just goes to one source (Cloudflare) for all their shopping needs.

Also remember the golden dot.com rule: If you're not paying for the product, you are the product. CF isn't doing this for the love coming from their warm hearts.

True, but how many ISPs are serving your area? At least Mozzilla has some kind of policy of record retention
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/DOH-resolver-policy

Think i'd rather have anything than default ISP like ATT

Also remember redundancy can be expensive: When the power goes out you don't need to have a generator big enough to run your house for a month. What you need is enough power for the fridge, a lamp (really nice when it gets dark), the fans for your wood stove (in winter), cell phone charging (surprisingly little), a weber grill, and a coffee machine (because waiting in line for coffee sucks). I've done this for a week, it's really not that big of a deal and having cold beer, a light at night, and coffee in the morning goes a long way towards feeling civilized and appropriately smug at those without.

So.... Keep things in perspective. Try not to be part of the mass migration herd, either be the first one out (tricky to time) or wait a week till things settle down.

Or solar + a Tesla battery and pretty much run your household as normal

You ghoulish kids are cute and all but the sars2 only kills 10% of the over 80's and 10% of diabetics etc so it's not that part that's going to sting as much as 2% of all humanity - if you remember what that is - could be killed. One hundred and fifty million souls. If you know 150 people pretty well, 3 will die in the next 18 months of this thing. Of your 1500 acquaintances, 30. 3 Hat-wearing, god-fearing, wall-observing bros might die.

edit ~15%, ~8%, ~2.3% but there's only been the one big study so far

It’s not even that - it’s 20% requiring ICU support.  

Odds are that if all of your family catches it, at least one of them will require ICU support.  And the death rate rises when the hospitals are overwhelmed.

Solar hot water is the go too. Those tube things they use these days are pretty damn awesome.

I am very surprised that we keep trickling down 2-3% in the stock market almost ever day. Very strange.
I would have assumed that markets can price in everything quicker.

That’s not necessarily how it works.  This is the SPX500 monthly candles.  A rolling crash can easily take a year or more.  It took 17 months to bottom during the GFC which would be June 2021 if we roll from here.  Then years to slowly grind back up.

Even a Tesla battery has a limit, and to be honest a rack of T015's would work as well. The trick is how much you suck down and how quickly your panel array can reload.

 Hydrogen off-gassing during recharging.  Really bad in a closed space.

edit: it can also whiten your fingernails as long as you're quick about it.  Too long and I think they'll totally dissolve... fortunately I didn't wait that long Smiley

you ever spilled any?

ever had the hydrogen gas over a battery light up?

trust me, it is nasty stuff, I moved to gelled electrolyte years ago and accepted the lower energy density just to not have it in my life

If you want to have a little fun, you mix it 50/50 with hydrogen peroxide, other than that, never hear of any explosions/fires related to car batteries. Unless you decide to charge them with the voltage of thors hammer.

If the news from Israel is to be believed, we're on our way to a vaccine. With fast track approval from the Ministry of Health, it might be available in 3 months. Someone posted an interesting link a few pages ago, sorry I can't remember who it was (not V8 though).

And of course they'll magically have a vaccine ready in 2-3 months. Right when the world stock market needs some good news. How convenient timing, eh? Grin

bah by then they will have sold the company, before the vaccine turns out not to work

An interesting interview with one of the Sharks on his view on bitcoin. He believes in it and is an advocate of how he sees it as a good way of a payment transmittance. What about the other powerful features of it?

First comment. Finally from the shark tanks robert herjavec.

I have seen a car battery blow, while driving down the road, long ago. We heard a pretty big 'fooom' while driving along, pulled over and left it running. Popped the hood, the only part of the battery visible was the top, with cables still clamped on. That side of the engine compartment was a mess of little plastic pieces, and (presumably) sulfuric acid.

"Ron, don't shut'er off, let's go straight to Walmart and buy a battery".

It was an old crappy car, perhaps the voltage regulator did not stop charging when it should, and an excess of hydrogen under the hood caught a spark. It was a crappy old car.
