    [–] Plastic bags to be banned in New York state. farhadd2 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Cool cool cool. Sounds good. Just like the January 1 2019 styrofoam ban in NYC. Guess what my chinese takeout place still uses for their containers?

    [–] Anyone who won a “lifetime supply” of something, what did you win, and are they still supplying it to you? farhadd2 1874 points ago in AskReddit

    My dad bought a lifetime subscription to the New England Journal of Medicine in 1977 at age 30. It's issued weekly. He's still receiving it (and he still practices medicine). I don't know how much it cost him at the time but it's currently priced at $189 / year for physicians. They've asked him several times if he'd be willing to switch to an online subscription but he's refused. He does actually still read a lot of it and tears out articles of interest and sticks them in other textbooks on related issues. My mother wants to choke him because he will often have a dozen or two piled up around the kitchen.

    [–] Current version Media Composer dongles for sale farhadd2 2 points ago in editors

    You are 100% correct. It's a nightmare of activating and deactivating licenses. Between that and plugin licensing, I find myself wasting a great deal of time each week. Adobe should offer a floating license option but they do not, probably because they know they can squeeze more money out of customers by not doing so. Their stock price seems to be doing quite well with that philosophy. Every computer sold nowadays is capable of running any of these apps; every computer is networked; and creative jobs are increasingly employing freelancers who come and go every few days. It's terribly inefficient for us but our hands are tied. If a producer needs to open a Photoshop file briefly, I'd have to activate a license for them, because they won't accept the notion of walking over to a common machine to view it (and if you read Adobe's licensing terms you'll find that doing that would actually be a violation). I honestly believe it will take legislation being passed to force some of these companies to walk back some of their draconian licensing policies. I think any software that forces you to pay for a subscription should also be mandated to offer floating licenses at no additional charge. But as it stands software companies have 100% carte blanche to demand anything of their customers and those customers have no recourse to fight it (arbitration doesn't count in my opinion).

    Actually, yes, these dongles have been in use for well over 15 years. They're rock solid. Avid continues to support them. We use them because we are a professional facility with mixed use suites and wanted a floating license option. We use them in conjunction with a $100 Silex USB device server over ethernet so users can sign out licenses easily, and we don't have to overpay to keep a license on each machine. Avid has a floating license server of their own but they charge $10000 for the privilege. I hope that answers your first question. As to your second question, this isn't the fucking 90s. It's fucking 2018.

    [–] Blizzard is giving away Destiny 2 right now. farhadd2 10 points ago in gaming

    This. I had the game with Osiris and Warmind DLCs (the first two), and hadn't touched it in a while. My level was still sub 300. I picked it up again after Forsaken came out without buying that DLC, and found that they had changed the way you infuse gear into other gear to require a "Masterwork Core" which was an incredibly rare drop to come by without purchasing from a new NPC in the Tangled Shore, which is only available with Forsaken. In order to continue progressing Bungie basically railroaded me into buying Forsaken, which is bullshit.

    [–] LPT: If you suffer from mouth ulcers, such as canker sores, they may be caused by the chemical SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) found in most toothpastes. Try switching to a brand without SLS for reprieve. farhadd2 1 points ago in LifeProTips

    I bought a propolis product called "Canker-Rid" from Amazon. It was $20 which seemed a little steep but it definitely helped me. It is a very sticky black / brown product, so you have to be careful applying it (it will stain your fingers if you're not careful) but it helped me heal my canker sores much faster.
