    [–] What is your rantable subject? BlueShellOP 2 points ago in AskMen

    Well, Net Neutrality is in the news again, and it's obvious that one major political party cares more about corporate cash than they do objectively doing their fucking jobs and keeping corporate power in check.

    And, Disney announced their competitor to Netflix - so that's yet another major streaming service. Internet piracy is likely going to explode in the coming years as consumers realize they're getting way overcharged for access to good content. Which is why all the ISPs are pushing to end Net Neutrality - they want to control what their consumers can see and access, in order to stop them from going to sites they don't agree with (politically or economically).

    I suppose you could bind a macro to a spare function key, assuming you have a fancy enough keyboard. Laptop users need not apply.

    IDK what you want to know. Usually when I rant about computers it's about whatever idiotic thing happened this last week.

    You can enjoy the occasional sweet while losing weight. It's just about moderation.

    Computers, motorcycles, and air-cooled Volkswagens.

    Also random history trivia.

    [–] Randy Pitchford explains his support for EGS BlueShellOP 12 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in pcgaming

    Question:

    Who's Randy Pitchford? I've been subbed here for years now and I have no idea who he is.

    Please note I don't roam YouTube, I just stick to the handful of channels I'm subscribed to.

    Edit: thanks for the replies!

    [–] Mustang Ecoboost hate? BlueShellOP 3 points ago in cars

    My singular problem with the Ecoboost Mustang is the idiot that lives on my street with a fart can muffler on his. It sounds like ass and it's a constant reminder that people are tacky as fuck with their cars.

    That being said - you have a cool, good looking, fun to drive car. The Ecoboost makes more than enough power and the new Mustang is a ridiculously fun car to drive. Fuck other people, just enjoy your car.

    Yeah, but cops get training to do it safely.

    /s heavily implied.

    [–] My man right behind a sheriff BlueShellOP 2 points ago in SanJose

    Because it's extremely difficult to enforce, and it'd be pretty easy to contest in court barring photographic proof.

    I had two people illegal cut into my left turn lane yesterday WHILE TURNING BEHIND A MARKED SJPD CAR, and the cop didn't do anything. Yeah, no wonder people are shitty drivers - SJPD doesn't care, and CHP cares even less.

    [–] ‘The federal government really jacked us’: How Trump's tax cuts are working out for Californians BlueShellOP 1 points ago in California

    I'm glad we've capped the regressive SALT deduction and hope its eliminated.

    Wait, what? Explain how SALT is regressive. SALT stands for State and Local Taxes, so I fail to see how deducting your state taxes from your federal taxes is regressive.

    [–] What do you do with the limitless power of pockets. BlueShellOP 1 points ago in AskMen

    I finally landed a six-figure job and housing prospects ain't pretty. At the very least, I'm not buying a house this side of 2030.

    I was there this morning! Looks even better in person. I'm glad the city has given San Pedro Square some love in recent years.

    Wait are we pro or anti-Harley this week?

    I mean, as a motorcyclist, I'm always anti-Harley, but what's the mainstream opinion?

    [–] “Just Switch to Linux” Is A Losing Strategy - Let's Consider Other Options to Push Linux Gaming Forward BlueShellOP 1 points ago in linux_gaming

    Same here!

    All the games I play are 2D or older 3D games, so when I was laptop shopping last year I sprung for a Dell XPS 13 since it had the glorious combo of excellent screen, touch, great battery life (>6h advertised, 10h realistic Windows btfo), backlit keyboard, good CPU, and a 1080p screen.

    My only complaint is that it has the exact same issue as the Dell Studio XPS 16 I bought in ~2010 - the fucker is IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. Fingerprints for days. Dell must have gone out of their way to find whatever material shows fingerprints the best, or something, ugh.

    But, anyways, installing Fedora was the easiest Linux experience I've ever had. Everything. Just. WORKS.

    This actually hasn't been as much of a problem in recent years. Most major WLAN chipsets have out of the box working drivers. Doubly so for a distro that's based on Ubuntu. I've ran Fedora on Dell and Asus laptops with with no issues. You just boot the installer, everything works, and you install it. No fuss.

    The only catch is Nvidia cards are still a pain on laptops, but if you get lucky it does sometimes work with a minimal effort setup.

    [–] Hellcat motor 'fits like a glove' in the Wrangler and Gladiator, says Jeep BlueShellOP 15 points ago in cars

    Maybe, depends if your street also has a fart can STI and a ghetto fart can Ecoboost Mustang done up to look like a fancy Roush Mustang.

    Ugh I hate people, they're so tacky with their cars.

    The nice thing about motorcycles is that they're generally fairly reliable. They're just more maintenance intensive.
