when did this happen? im struggling to think of one that wasn't aluminum

yo check your credit card benefits. if you have a nice card it probably has price protection.

it usually doesn't cover if the lower price is a "cyber monday" type deal but should cover you if the higher price is.

that is cool. it is like a $6 difference so im not going to bother in this case, but i didnt know that was a thing :thumbsup: non sarcastically

a Cinema Display HD goes even more perfectly with the MDD, honestly

also, put a cheap 120GB SSD in your G4 through an IDE-SATA bridge, it loving flies

like everything you can do in Mac OS 9.2.2, MPW, CodeWarrior, Macintosh Common Lisp, etc. feels instantaneous, itís quite something

those are the ones with the two feet up front and the kickstand, right? hsc had a little 15" one that i played around with for a bit, and it was TN garbage

i already have an ssd in the mdd via that same adapter, although it's a 40gb one since i did that before the bigger ones were affordable. really should get one of those cheap msata laptop pulls from ebay and stick it in there. probably do like a 128

the one with the kickstand yeah, the 17 was OK but the 23in Cinema HD is the sweet spot, I used the original clear/kickstand model for many years and then replaced it with an aluminum

120GB is the sweet spot since the ATA controller may not support 128GB or larger disks

its a fw800 mdd so its about as late as you can get. i figure my chances are good, but ill test it with a larger drive first

if the larger displays are ok, ill keep an eye out. still gonna want to look at a functioning one before buying one sight unseen at a swap meet or craigslist or w/e though

i've had it happen where the terminal has nfc capabilities and pops up the wallet when i hold my phone over it, but after a few seconds it just makes an obnoxious noise with CARD READ ERROR on the screen and won't work until i insert the actual card

you would think that the payment companies would incentivize retailers to support mobile payments since they basically eliminate the possibility of compromising accounts via skimming or hacking

this happened to me a couple days ago, but with a tap card. i saw the logo, held my card up to the reader, and it angrily beeped at me until i inserted it

Endless Mike posted:

yeah, if you happen to have a tap card, then you can use it at places that accept nfc payments. i don't know of any banks currently offering tap cards, but i haven't really bothered to look into it, so it's possible some do.

classic mac os has a feature that no other operating system has been able to match

files, folders, and open windows actually stay where you put them and persist across reboots

i dont think this is true if the resolution changes, say due to a fullscreen game or w/e. its common enough for apps to gently caress it up and leave it at 640x480 or whatever that i remember getting pretty good mileage out of the control strip resolution changer thing

I assume they're refurbs or something, but is this a known problem with that generation of phones or something? cause my Xs has no problem with the wifi here

(also to answer the cube question: yes and no, you'd need a specific mounting bracket for it but it would fit the socket.)

I had a cube for about a week, I hated it because of the dumbly mounted CD drive and that it has no native audio out and requires a USB thing for it, which is loving daft.

yeah i know it would work (i think any g4 that is cool with 100mhz fsb will) but idk if it would survive with the cooling situation in there.

yeah the optical drive is weird; tons of unused/wasted space, especially after you replace the hdd with an msata ssd
