My contribution to this thread is as follows:


We placed a grocery order for pickup today (corona and all). I asked Mrs. Beef to add to the list, a pork tenderloin since A.) it's on sale and B.) I like making pork tenderloins. Exciting. I know.
She goes out just now and gets to the store and I get a text from her of a screen shot of a notification she received from the store.
"Notification: We are out of the following item(s): Pork Tenderloin"
Alright, first off, this is a LARGE grocery store and chain, it's not national, but it's multi-state and regional and the stores themselves are LARGE and well stocked. How they could be out of something like a normal pork tenderloin when they have their own meat and butcher dept in store is, well, whatever. Here's the kicker.
"We have substituted the following item: Mario Batali Original Marinara Sauce"

...what?

Why the gently caress, if you didn't have a pork tenderloin, would you think, "you know what he probably wants instead? Spaghoot. Yes. That will do."

I don't know where else to vent about this, so here will have to do.

I bought a pair of used headphones on Amazon a while back.
What got sent to me was the BOX for what I ordered and a pair of like, $30 dollar knock off things (what I ordered was like $125).

So, using Amazon I sent a message stating that what I got wasn't what I ordered and that I'd return them for the right item.

Ok cool. So, they sent me another pair of the right kind and I printed off a return slip and took it to a kohls store, who do their returns for them, and got confirmation that all is good.

... Now Amazon is sending me automated emails that they're expecting the original item to be returned to them.
...I can't do that. I never GOT the original item, that was the problem.
Also Amazon's emails specifically state 'this is automated don't respond to this' and offer no alternative contact info.

So that's cool.

I've seen bears a few times but only for a moment or two before they haul rear end.
I know normally you can handle them and they don't bother people unless there's 'stuff' involved but still, seeing a big predator animal while you're just walking or biking is unnerving a little.

I bought a water softener.
The water softener did not fit my existing connections. I knew this but thought "I will figure this out and do some work". I learned after some time and effort, do not do this.
I found a handy man/general contractor to come out and look at it. He and I both discussed options. He could not do it.
Today a plumber has come.
Looked at it for less than 30 seconds and said "No problem." This is why just having a licensed professional is best. I am dumb. Don't be dumb like me.

Radishes own.
I grow them myself and love to just eat them fresh from the garden. Just pull 'em up, clean them off, and put a little salt on them and boy howdy you got yourself a snack!!
Don't hate on radishes in my presence please.

every year I try to do a different variety to really 'spice things up'. I like having interesting things you don't find at the store, so I've had some pretty kicking rad results from my radish crops

I made some rice noodles and used pad thai sauce from a bottle (I just wanted to be a cheap bitch, sue me) but I also added fish sauce and like, I over did it on the fish sauce and now about 2 of the 3 levels of my house stink like fish sauce.
Pasta was ok tho.

I have never actually hosed up my computer by working on it, but I've deathly afraid I'm going to every time.

I actually worked as a real life computer toucher (as in for a large company, on an industrial bench type style not just "Oh excel crashed?" type touchin') ...it's actually loving HARD to seriously dick your computer. Like, I know there's all the caveats that go with saying something like that, but really you'd be surprised how tough it is to actually gently caress poo poo up just by cracking it open and working the guts around a little.

My ancient Apple laptop (11 years) is possibly reaching the end of its life

It's blipping and blooping and occasionally freezing for 20 seconds, but useable for the most part still. Internet says its the logicboard

When I start getting money again (yay covid) I'm thinking of investing in a decent gaming laptop. Heard good things about MSI

Any thoughts?

Like, it super depends on your price bracket and what model you're looking at.
Honestly what you need to do is set a price point, and then start doing searches for 'X component' in that bracket and see what's up. There are MSI boards that are really good, and there are some that are crappy. But, they also have a $500 price spectrum and which are where on that spectrum don't match what you might think.

It's a bugger.

The same goes for all your components. Give yourself a budget, stick to it, and prioritize on what you want. Make sure all the parts click together and she'll be good to go.

However, what that one dude posted about 're-applying thermal paste'?

...I wouldn't touch that with a 10 ft pole. Don't unseat thermal coupling stuff, even if you think it's hosed. If it's hosed, it's hosed. If it's not, you're going to gently caress it. Don't touch that.
Which kinda goes against my previous "Oh it's hard to mess poo poo up" post, but, really, you can literally bend the motherboard to cram RAM into or out of a slot or do whatever, all of that stuff is cool. Don't gently caress with thermal stuff on your proc. I guess that's the 'caveat' part of my previous post. I do know why that stuff is so weird, but it's dumb as poo poo nerd stuff.
