New ASUS router firmware now requires a user to be 16y or older and will restrict features and even security upgrades if you opt out
  • Here are some screenshots from my router administration pages. Notice the "Powered by Asuswrt-Merlin".

    In the first image you can see that I have a particular feature disabled.

    When I toggle it on I receive a warning that my information will be collected by Trend Micro.

    I included another screenshot showing the location where I would withdraw my consent to having my data collected, were I to actually use the advanced features of the router, that I thought I was paying for at the point of sale. Instead I was apparently paying for the privilege of having the option dangled in front of me, behind an agreement for yet another, separate company to collect my family's data.

  • Recommendations for cheap hardware upgrade
  • I may have purchased that exact item from Amazon a few months ago. It is 100% worth saving up for a bit to purchase something this good. Debian stable is fully supported. It's currently just my streaming client but it's pretty powerful and sips power compared to off lease desktops or even laptops.

  • Can we all agree to look up a local third party candidate and mention their name to someone you know who is also local?
  • It's a bit late in the game to drum up support for third party candidates. Republicans have been playing the long game and pushing local elections hard right for years, decades even. You can't jump in a few months before elections and expect to make any difference other than ensuring the Republican base wins again.

    Ranked choice is the only solution.

  • Happily Never After
  • If you date him, wouldn't you be settling?

    He's getting upset and aggravated because of who you are and the things you want out of life. A good partner candidate would try to help you achieve those things instead of try to change those things about you.

  • Transphobes are doxxing Stardew Valley fans after they asked the game developer for pronouns
  • I'm not centuries old but I've used it to refer to individuals when I didn't know their gender, and also when it wasn't necessary to indicate gender to determine who I was talking about.

    I'm almost fifty and went to private schools if it helps.

  • *braces for down votes and possible ban*
  • The right wing has spent generations embedding themselves into corridors of power, from the local school board up to and including the supreme court.

    A huge number of the left wing typically don't even vote. So then when the left do get energized but it's not enough to stem the tide or accomplish too much, because they didn't invest in the long game... then they start this hyper-ideological, cultural revolution style thinking. It's exhausting.

    Folks, your opponents put in the effort while you just showed up for the test.

  • Like Taking Crazy Pills Every Day
  • There are only so many ways to get the kind of society that works, and far too many ways for it to go wrong. It's kind of a crazy idea to think that burning it down and starting over would be beneficial.

  • Guitar stolen from Jerry Cantrell

    Edit: it's been found. Apparently it was misplaced during a busy day and they were afraid it was stolen.

    Keep an eye out, I guess ☹️

    Is there a list somewhere?

    I'm looking for a tele or strat style guitar with a 24.75 or Gibson scale roasted maple, satin finish neck, compound radius roughly 12 to 16 inch, hardtail, non wrap around bridge, HH or HSS (or H90)?

    PC part picker may have spoiled me in this regard but why isn't there a page with a filter-able list of makes/models/year/feature/whatever that lets you search for your favorite spec'd instrument?
