  1. Dealing with T-Mobile for something with my mom has reminded me how incredibly annoying it is to deal with one of the big mobile providers is. I should just move her over to Google Fi. One plan. No confusion. No addons. None of this bullshit.
  2. article - https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/porn-block-uk-ban-government-bill-website-delay-sex-a9158396.html This was never realistically feasible so good riddance.
  3. imdb -https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7049682/ wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watchmen_(TV_series) This is mostly a placeholder right now. It starts Sunday. I plan to check it out.
  4. The Pixel 4 is pretty underwhelming overall. I don't think it deserves any more mental energy than that.
  5. "‘Matrix 4’: Neil Patrick Harris Lands Role in Latest Installment (EXCLUSIVE)" article - https://variety.com/2019/film/news/matrix-4-neil-patrick-harris-1203371790/ It just gets worse and worse. I don't like him.

    Keyboards & Mice

    That keyboard looks great.
  8. Powered through this pretty hard. It was fun. I enjoyed it more in the second half than in the first half. Just started The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin ( wikipedia ). I have seen it on a lot of reading lists over the last couple of years. I have not read much yet so I cannot even give any impressions but the book begins with a section set in the Cultural Revolution in China during the 1960s which feels weirdly appropriate.

    Gun Laws

    I feel like I can see both sides of this. The 80% kits were really really close to the line of what I could consider a "loophole". That being said, there is a long history of the laws being stretched to incorporate a number of other things so I feel like it's a legit concern.

    Destiny 2

    I'm over 900. EDIT: To provide an example two examples: 1) Do I re-pull an exotic chest piece from collection, making it armor 2.0, from collection and then infuse it up to my current level or do I take my current exotic chest piece, which is armor 1.0, and infuse it up my current level or is that a waste? 2) For my pulse rifle, do I go and forge a new one or infuse my old one?

    Destiny 2

    I really don't follow all the news or read all the guides but I need some advice on the new gear system before I poorly use up a bunch of materials. The game itself has not exactly been the most helpful in giving a clear upgrade path. Armor: So should I be slowly deprecating all my old armor and re-pull-from-collections, remake, get new stuff, etc? I'm guessing the answer is yes I should not just continue to "upgrade" (infuse) since it armor 1.0 without the slots and never will become 2.0 on its own. Weapons: Pretty much same story. Should I just re-pull-from-collections or re-forge instead of infusing?

    Playstation 5

    article - https://www.engadget.com/2019/10/08/the-playstation-5-launch-date-holiday-2020/ Some details at this point: Will launch late 2020. New controllers will have adaptive triggers that have dynamic tension/feedback. Ray-tracing will somehow be included in the hardware. CPU will use a third-gen AMD Ryzen with eight cores and a custom GPU built on AMD's Radeon Navi family. "Fast" SSD 100GB optical bluray disks

    Car Washing

    If I have time, which probably means on a Saturday, I go to one of the paid hand wash places in Fullerton but this process usually takes an hour no matter where I go so I try to time it around lunch and bring lunch with me to eat while waiting. If I have very little time, during the week, my looks really terrible, and it's a warm, dry day then I hit up a self service place (like this one) and do one timed spray session of soap and then one timed spray session of low-pressure "spot free" rinse. Usually takes me less than 15 minutes and costs $4 total ($2 per session). My work has banned getting your car washed in the parking lot, even if it is in an area with no other cars nearby. I heard a story that this was popular at one time and had a whole group buy-in and someone in management complained. I would very much like to get my car the full treatment someday, clay bar, etc. but that is a multi-hour Saturday commitment according to the two places I have called and it's kind of low on my priority list.
  14. article - https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/10/04/us_government_encryption/ I'm practically quoting the entire article but to save you a click.... Think of the children. Encryption is a crime.
  15. Imagine Dragons is not exactly my favorite brand and it doesn't help that they are/were terribly overplayed but I did like this remix when it showed up on my phone.
  16. "...and the entire range of efficient and electrified powertrains.” Hmm.

    Sam Rockwell. I feel like I have been seeing his face a lot lately.
  18. "Microsoft phones are back with the dual-screen Surface Duo" https://www.engadget.com/2019/10/02/microsoft-surface-duo-android-phone-official/ Runs Android. So who wants a Microsoft phone?
  19. When I saw the thumbnail I was sure I had seen this before and, sure enough, they are trying to bring this idea back.
  20. Finished this recently. Fizzled pretty hard for me. I had some issues with the writing already in the first book but it just got worse and worse by the end of the 2nd book. Currently reading Small Gods by Terry Pratchett. Seen this book recommended many times. I'm not a huge Terry Pratchett fan because his style of comedy does not really do anything for me and the fact that it's a big part of many of his books. That being said, this is short and it should not take long to finish. This is also the first book I'm reading on the new ereader. wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_Gods
  21. While I can appreciate Chvches music the only song I will ever associate with Mirror's Edge is the original OST

    Action Cameras

    ....already posted in group chat but.... https://gopro.com/en/us/shop/cameras/hero8-black/CHDHX-801-master.html I feel like it's a nice update all around but nothing revolutionary when you consider how must people use their gopros. HyperSmooth 2.0 and it's available at all resolutions and framerates "Boost" stabalization mode (HyperSmooth 3.0 ?) "mod" accessories (mic, front screen, light) bottom mounting bracket now integrated lower resolutions deleted, 1080p now lowest res (why?)
