did it feel like it had disks spinning?

iv seen videos of rehardwaring a drive, but it does not look Fun.

Doesn't spin up at all, which usually means it's seized or the controller is fucked and not supplying power properly. Either way it means taking it apart. How do we at this stage in our data tech not have a device you can just stick the platters on to do a single read from, writing the data to cheap drive? 20 years ago we could write from a halfway-degaussed magnetic tape drive to digital device, with no further loss of data. Now we can't even do a raw write. I get that it's much more complicated tech, but you'd think reliable data recovery would be an important factor in a ubiquitous product like hard drives.

That's why all businesses store their data on drives in a RAID.  My personal data storage drives are in a RAID specifically to help reduce data loss (plus also in the cloud).

Thhe cloud you say

So tonight I finally put the final word on a story I had been writing on a freeform game for going on... about eight years now, I think.

Due to a complete clusterfuck of circumstances, it was basically all but abandoned by the beginning of this year, but even if I wanted it to end with a whimper, not a bang, I still wanted to give everyone involved a chance to say goodbye to their characters in a manner befitting them. After all, they spent most if not all of that time writing with me.

And thanks to an absolute asshole of a stalker (seriously, fuck that guy with a rusty spoon), the absolute apocalypse that this year is turning out to be and the forums the story was in exploding, I had to essentially have a funeral for that game by myself. So... yeah, feeling pretty melancholic by now.

If Social Security comes after me for overpay after the pandemic is over I'm likely screwed. For now though I can absorb this with the relief check and my overtime pay.

They over paid me when i first started getting social security and i talked with them and they took out the minimum they could over time, so instead of paying it back all at once it was spread out.

They have to get to 2/3rds present (!) to Convict, which the Dems (47 + ??) don't have anything near that, but the 'present' part might be a way forward.

so if the dems somehow got enough for a quorum (51 senators)) and 2/3rds of that is 34,so we just need a way to figure how to keep more than 51 out of the senate :plotting
and this document over rides the previous two (74,98) in regards to this instance of impeachment https://judiciary.house.gov/sites/democrats.judiciary.house.gov/files/documents/HCM%20FINAL%20v.3.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2SYZl9Py4gs_XiPpqw32RnzZaXhU-OgeRxq2T9J14rJzjBpOkfzk6TK1k

The money stuff isn't about him being too rich, it is about foreign dignitaries spending money at resorts and hotels that his family owns.


And the fact that he's basically having the government paying him for playing golf at his resorts

Saw my first New Mexico license plate (that I can remember).
It's possible I saw one in DC as a blur driving by, but missed "seeing" it.
Anyway this one was real.


edit after a few days -- I forgot to mention, NM plates have a phalicsymbol-for-HalfOrcs on it.
A quite nice touch really.

Which plate? the one with the red and green chili on it or one of the others?

So my mom asks me to get her some cash, which involves me crossing the street to the ATM.

On the way back someone calls out "Thief! He got my phone!"

I'm wearing a Star Wars sweatshirt, someone yells "Do something! Use the Force!"

So I dash across the street and plant both my feet onto the jackass. He collapses like a bag of potatoes. Pretty sure he couldn't breathe right for five minutes.

"Sorry, someone asked me to use mass times acceleration, and I'm nothing if not obliging to my fans!"
:clap :lol :lmao

All I have left is some of their clothing and a pile of delusional ramblings about teaching people the truth of the world.

Is it marketable? Can we make money off of it?

Any feedback on the structure or way it’s organized?
Anything else you want me to know?
