i absolutely hated private trackers. i would seed and seed and seed and nobody ever downloaded anything from me so i could never actually use the site

they said 'seed popular stuff!' and i went down this rabbit hole of trying to automate seeding of like garbage pop albums and poo poo in 320 flac and just ended up filling up my hard drive with garbage that i deleted
i'm sure there's a way to effectively use them but i'm also pretty sure that way involves being a loving torrent piracy nerd staring at a computer monitor for four hours a day

I remember that

Fun fact, WD did that on purpose with a model once

I had ordered some 500gb WD Green drives for the comp shop and got a batch of them formatted to 808.8 GB

i went what

did a bit of searching and basically 8 is a lucky number in China so they short stroked a bunch of 1T drives in the firmware for a chinese new year celebration product. Then just sold the leftovers at 500gb pricing. lol

anyways on computer building, it's funny how 20 years ago my video card was the size of a pack of cigarettes and my hard drives took up a bread loaf's worth of space. this new machine will have a video card the size of a cat and a 1TB drive the size of a stick of gum

it was really common in nz in the 90s for white trash peeps to have leather necklace bic lighter holder things so they would be able to spark up a durry or cone at a moments notice

the best way to keep a firestarter in your go bag is to buy a bic, buy a lighter leash, then put the lighter in backwards so the business end is protected from the elements. when you need it just pop it out of of the rubber thing and light up that mansion. also your poo poo's on a string now so it wont get lost in the bottom of your bag

they have been replaced by pcie x1 slots, which have such potential for random cool poo poo, but nobody ever uses because serial ports are dead*, everybody just uses onboard sound or an external USB sound interface, and all the good nvme cards are x4 or higher

* my x570 board has a serial header and you're god damned right i bought the little backplate + ribbon cable to hook to it
