(Also I didn't want to sell it with it being that noisy).
This is a photo of an Xbox One that's had a full teardown and thermal paste replacement, and it was a smashing success. \o/ I think the last time I applied thermal paste to anything would have been something like 15 years ago. The fans were getting really noisy when doing 4K/HDR gaming and given we're getting the new Xbox Series X tomorrow, I figured I'd fix it now and in the worst case scenario that I broke it, I wouldn't be without an Xbox for long. :P
Haha, compare that to the crappy photos I took of my old guitar almost thirteen years ago. https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72157603827599781
I broke out the full lighting setup and took some arty photos of my guitar. :D #photography https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72157716809884113
With Kristina's newfound love of cricket, we bought a $15 plastic cricket set from K-Mart and went over to the park to smash it around. So much fun! 🏏
Unfortunately I _did_ manage to smack one ball right back at her at a significant speed and it got her right in the stomach. Even left a red mark too, oops. 😬
And as is tradition after having Black Bear Barbecue for lunch, the double-length workout! 💪🏻
Throw away the idea that good people don't have racist and antisemitic preconceptions. Saying "I'm not racist!" is a little like saying "I don't have air in my lungs." Racism is in the air we breathe. The morality doesn't come into whether we were indoctrinated with racist ideas or not, because we are and it's not a matter of choice. The morality is in how we deal with our indoctrination. Do we deny it and double down to become complicit, or face it and dismantle it?
We live with racist ideas and we will die with them. But we can try to do better instead of clinging to the idea that we are Good People who do not need to learn or change. That's just bullshit.
Hah, the box that iFixit ships their stuff in is great!
Hah this is awesome! The Raspberry Pi Foundation has released the Pi 400, which is a slightly faster Raspberry Pi 4 _in_ a keyboard! I don't think I have any particular use for one, but I want it anyway. https://www.theverge.com/2020/11/2/21542278/raspberry-pi-400-keyboard-computer-arm-release-date-news-features
