vacuum cleaners generally work fine for 30-50 years regardless of brand. just install (and replace occasionally) some filters and use Good Bags and Shitsuck 5000 from 1984 is as good as anything you can buy today.

LIFE HACK: if your vacuum cleaner sucks by not sucking, it's about 100% certain the problem is the lovely terrible bags you're buying.

thanks for the reminder, i'm probably overdue to change the filters on my vacuum cleaner

the 420th page of the image thread just reminded me of that one system settings dialog in Windows 9x that had a time displayed, and that time was 4:20. I tried to find it in my Win98 virtual machine in order to take a screenshot, but it wasn't Regional Settings like I remembered.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Ah, I found it - it wasn't actually a Windows built-in, but the Synaptics touchpad drivers:

lol yeah. I just hit up in.gov/mybmv, they at least have a redirect. one of the actual useful things Mitch daniels did as governor, modernize the BMV. Anytime I need to go I am in and out in 15 minutes.

i love lil specialized tech consoles like that. the late 80s through early 2000s era of small companies still tryin their damndest to get into the market created really cool (and really, uh, n-gage) stuff that i dont think will ever be possible again nowadays

Qr code based payments are really common in other countries like China (I guess because it's simpler than nfc) so it actually isn't that weird
