[MacRumors] Apple Launches 'Help Me Choose' Website for Finding the Right Mac
  • Someone on mastodon dug into the code and discovered they left the Mac Pro out of it.

  • Plex remote access - low quality even with gigabit fiber
  • I have gigabit, and struggled to stream. Turned out I had the Quality of Service (QoS) /traffic priority settings on my router misconfigured.

    This might be something to look into.

    Can a remote user download something from your network at a reasonable and consistent speed? (Not using Plex)

    Can you upload a large file somewhere and monitor the speed and see if it maintains speed as expected?

    For me, these two things were also performing at unexpectedly low speeds, or being wildly inconsistent until I fixed my QoS settings.

  • Well, it's officially over. Tom Hardy says George Miller’s "MAD MAX: FURY ROAD" prequel "THE WASTELAND" is no longer happening.
  • I would hope no one gets this idea. Mad Max is at its best with bold impressions and hints and implications of worldbuilding, without entirely giving away its hand. I appreciate glimpses that make me wonder, I don't need a light shined in every crevice.

    I totally agree. I feel like this is why Mad Max works. And why Fury Road was possible.

  • Personally, I have no interest in animated versions. The live action spectacle is important. IMO.

    And don’t anyone get pedantic about what animation means.

  • Yeah, you wouldn't want to look silly
  • I always forget to take off my badge.

  • Here's what's happening to ad blockers in Google Chrome (and other browsers)
  • That’s reminds me, I should go update mine.

  • Here comes trouble
  • Fuck you bitch!

  • One Piece Las Vegas Sphere - YouTube
  • I didn’t know it was so bright in daylight. That’s crazy.

  • The rent is too dang high in Cities: Skylines 2, so the devs nuked the landlords
  • I didn’t know about the co-ownership. That makes HOA stories make more sense.

  • I made a tool to measure the battery impact of different Android web browsers - here's what I learned!
  • That was mostly my joke.

    Part of my joke was also that comparing one platform to another like this wouldn’t be a direct/good comparison.

  • Woman dies after being hit by police truck on S.C. beach
  • One of those big fucking trucks with poor visibility. Driven with over confidence.

    Four Months in - Feeling Much Better

    I stopped vaping flower in early May and I’m feeling much better as a result. Far less anxiety, more time in the day and clearer thinking in general.

    I’m back to a baseline I didn’t think I’d ever have again.

    Having dreams again is really good for me.

    If you are considering quitting, it’s worth it.
