The Flood / Moving to Colorado
« on: May 19, 2019, 05:57:15 PM »
I've moved a few times in the last couple of years, so I guess my travels aren't anything new but this one is a little different.

Tomorrow I'm leaving for Colorado, and I'm going to spend some time in the mountains. I'm gonna be staying somewhere remote, so I won't be around much, maybe once a week if I go down to town that week.

If anyone wants in touch you should add me on discord @Solonoid#7465.

I'll be moving again at the end of September, if anyone knows anywhere nice to go, let me know. At current, I'm still thinking about making my way to the pacific northwest, but I'm open to ideas for sure.

SecondClass needs our help.

She has been talking a lot about wanting to kill herself lately, and she needs to be told that if she seeks help, things will get better. But she doesn't want help, so please, help her out by showing support for her here.

You know that things have spiraled out of control lately, so any encouraging words you have will really help.

It has the same name as the last movie you watched.

What is it called?
What happens in it?

Mine is Sorry to Bother You.
I don't know how "An incel tries to talk to Stacy, and she fucks him to get revenge on her boyfriend Chad." incorporates me, but that's what I imagine an adult film with that title would be about

Gaming / Destiny 2 is actually pretty good now
« on: May 09, 2019, 02:45:13 PM »
I've had a lot of fun with it since Forsaken came out.

Yesterday they released a new exotic quest called Zero Hour which is a lot of fun. Joke's Wild hasn't been abhuge success, but there have been a lot of cool little quality of life adjustments this season. Black Armory was really good. Armor is still ugly as sin, I hope in the next major expansion they add some good looking stuff to the game, but there have been tons of cool guns added.

Is anyone still playing this game in 2019?

The Flood / yeah but also fuck you verb

there's always gonna be someone who is gonna pass better than me, or has a better job, or lives somewhere nicer, or all kinds of stuff that has been frustrating me but things could be a lot worse

2019 has been the calmest year of my adult life,and I've been in a stable and happy relationship without any emotional/substance abuse, haven't gone hungry at all, I've had a place to live all this time, and I'm surrounded by friends who really care about me

that's a lot for someone like me, since those are things that I historically have never had
my life isn't shooting upward like I'd like, but I'm finally standing on solid ground and I don't appreciate that often enough I think
don't look at this thot
caught u lackin

do you guys ever take a sec to reflect on positive things, and if so, what kind of stuff has been bringing you up or getting you down lately?

The Flood / Vice is pretty good I guess
« on: February 20, 2019, 12:16:09 AM »
I have a thing for Republican Supervillain Egomaniacs.

Especially Richard Nixon.

Vice covers Dick Cheney's life and the most crucial moments of his career, in which he was at his most powerful. The film has an attitude, and a sense of comedic timing in the way that its edited. It's really a good example of how to make a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat, regardless of how dry or mundane the subject matter.

Vice is, at its core is a tale about a young Sheev Palpatine growing into the evil Emperor Palpatine, and George W. Bush is Darth Vader.

Donald Rumsfeld is Darth Plaguis.

The difference is, when the Death Star blows up, The Emperor gets even more powerful, everyone blames Vader, and they attack the rebels on the Oil Planet.

If you had ever asked yourself, "what would it be like if The Prequel Trilogy was fun to watch and had as many lightsaber fights as The Last Jedi?" Vice is the answer to that question.

It's everything House of Cards tries to be without muddling around and injecting filler and drama. Every second of the two hour film is somehow fresh, and cut differently from the last. Oh yeah and Meth Damon is there too.

Watch this movie.

Gaming / Bungie Splits with Activision... Time for us to go home?
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:28:30 AM »
Only time will tell, but Bungie is now independent, and intends to publish all future Destiny content independently. Is the alienation that pushed us away ending? Probably not, but there were a great deal of apologists who swore it was Activision who forced most of the PS4 bias and abuse of the staff, community, and the lackluster game that Destiny was when it launched.

I doubt we'll be going anywhere except our separate ways in the next five years, but it will be interesting to see how Bungie changes following this split.

The Flood / Top 1 Albums of Ever
« on: January 07, 2019, 12:47:06 AM »
For eternity thus far, some okay music has been made, but this comprehensive list is, beyond my opinion, sheer and indisputable fact. This list, generate through scientific testing, showcases the objectively greatest 1 Albums made during the last ever, and provides the data by which these assertions grace fact.

1. Testify by Phil Collins

This album not only changed my life, but also the world, and by proxy your life too. Phil Collins poured all of his vast mastery into capturing the human condition and connecting with every living human being simultaneously to produce this album. It is beyond doubt that musically, it is the finest piece of art to be produced by humans, that is, barring the much more likely event that it was handed down to Phil by God himself. Lyrically... the term poetry doesn't come close to describing the beauty encased in his words. A select few albums have been blessed in either of these ways, but Testify blends them together seamlessly and with truly divine beauty.

There's not much more to be said in plain words, but you MUST immediately listen to this album, regardless of whether you've heard it before or not, lest you face indefinite incarceration on earth and eternal hellfire beyond.

Phil bless you.

The Flood / LG Stylo 4: The King of Entry Level Phones?
« on: January 06, 2019, 01:54:49 AM »
I've been using this phone, on sale for $110 at best buy for a week now, and it sports some flagship design, with some drawbacks, at entry level prices.

With only a Snapdragon 445 and 2GB of ram, as well as having SD card adoption disabled to expand the internal storage beyond the stock 32GB, this phone is very similar to other entry level devices in terms of raw performance. However, there's more to a user experience than the geekbench score.

The included stylus launches a small bubble with some quick options, like the Galaxy Note, and works remarkably well. The mesh tip actually feels more premium than the rubber tipped s pen in pure use feel, but obviously lacks many of the s pen's features.

The ability to draw a cutout from the screen for a screenshot never gets boring, even if my unskilled hand makes ugly, jagged cuts. For drawing, I miss the S Pen's reticle displayed when hovering, but the accuracy is better, especially after you've slightly bent the S Pen's rubber tip.

Small bezels are nice, and the phone sports a fairly premium 79.9% screen to body ratio. The chin at the bottom of the phone is the same size as the forehead at the top, and I applaud LG's decision to forgo a notch to try and increase that screen to body ratio just a little higher. It's not winning any awards, but the 18:1 aspect ratio, with a 1080x2160 resolution on a 6.2" display (with rounded d corners), pushes even lower end smartphones toward the future of a more affordable premium feel.

I instantly missed the Super AMOLED display of my Samsung phone, and the colors will just never feel right without it. It's the sort of thing you can never come back from.

The Stylo 4 is a big winner in productivity. It handles more intensive chat apps like snapchat with no problems, and running Android 8.1 Oreo, it has no shortage of support for newer applications like I don't know how they stretch the small RAM so far, but I never feel like I'm losing performance.

App launch time isn't premium feeling, but it's far and afield beyond yesterday's budget, or even mid level options, so while launch is instantaneous, the brief hesitation to populate constant, while not necessarily welcome, isn't a major drawback.

The cameras sport fairly premium resolutions (5MP front & 13MP back), but they're frankly shit in post. After a few shots I already thought it may be a good idea to consider carrying a lower res, lower price, Samsung as just a camera to get all of life's little moments recorded. It's a damn shame, and makes me wonder if LG's claims of the great camera performance on the V40, might not be worth the five sensors, purely because their post processing, theoretically the same across their entire line, is so severely lacking.

Next, we come to battery life. This is where everything comes to a head. The 3000mah battery would have been great at one point, but it just doesn't cut it anymore. The fast charging is a nice feature, but as no fast charger is included it's kind of a letdown. The phone doesn't support Qi charging, so don't expect to get away with a cheap online charging pad. I have to wonder why Qi wasn't thrown in, as the design completely allows for it, which I'll touch on in a moment. Perhaps budget was a constraint, on this budget model. This kinda undermines the productivity claims I made earlier, as you might be productive with this device, you just won't be for long.

From a design perspective, mostly premium materials were used. There's adecent  hardened glass on the front of the screen, though LG didn't spring for Corning Gorilla Glass, not even an older formula, and the back of the phone is an imitative glass acrylic, which feels cheesy at first, but after some use, isn't as bad as many acrylics, and actually offers better grip than glass would. It looks like glass, and is definitely a fingerprint magnet, but it doesn't send a "cheap phone" message when viewing or touching it, after you've imparted some of the oils from your hand to make it less tacky to the touch. The fingerprint sensor is not fast, but it is pretty accurate, and it is definitely still much faster than swipe to unlock. The buttons, (volume and power, no quick access key) are made of metal, as is the entire outer frame of the phone, which offers decent drop protection and makes the phone feel more premium in general. Oh, and it has a headphone jack, in addition to the Type C port which is usually so absent on entry level phones.

If anyone out there can't be bothered to spring a few hundred for Nokia's latest offerings, which I consider the best of mid-range phones, or incrementally more for the Oneplus 6T or another Flagship at twice the price, I would definitely recommend this unit over my 2017 entry level pick of the year's successor (the Samsung J7 2017 held this title, and the J7 2018 is just a refresh of the same hardware). The Stylo 4 feels newer and more premium than even some flagship hardware from a couple of years ago, which do offer better performance, but this unit has all of the good design elements that arose in 2018, and seems to have left behind all of the bad ones.

Gaming / Xbox One External Hard Drive not recognized - solution
« on: December 14, 2018, 01:11:50 PM »
Hey, so I don't post anywhere else except discord really, so I was hoping someone else who is more prolific on other sites could spread this info around, as I was unable to find this suggestion anywhere when trying to troubleshoot this drive detection problem.

I recently upgraded an Xbox One S's internal storage, and sold him his old hard drive back in an enclosure so it could be used via usb 3.0

The trouble was, the drive would not show up on the Xbox as either media storage or as game storage. Even formatting the drive did not resolve the issue. I decided to take a crack at something as a shot in the dark and it worked.

I initialize all drives with GUID Partition Tables, and indeed this disk was already GPT when I removed it from the Xbox. Most off the shelf drives use the older Master Boot Record standard though. I converted this drive from to an MBR disk, and ouala, the Xbox now recognizes it as game storage.

To convert a disk to MBR, if anyone has this problem themselves, open up the Disk Management utility in Windows, or on Linux you can download GParted. On Windows, delete all partitions on the drive, right click on the drive at the lefthand side of the window, and select "Convert to MBR disk". On Linux the process just entails selecting the drive and going to the toolbar and selecting "Create Master Boot Record"

When you're done, create a new partition in the NTFS format, as the Xbox will not recognize the drive without a partition.

For a while, I've marketed computer repair services by word of mouth. I've also been doing internal storage upgrades for current gen consoles.

Recently I acquired a domain and I'm setting up an online shop right now to sell pre-built PCs and custom system integrations. I'm calling my company TRCX.

For custom integrations (for which we've already had oir first customer!), we investigate the use case the customer has in mind and design a solution that's tailored to their needs.

I've just finished designing our first pre-built, the Arizona Q119, which will go on sale along with a variety of other systems in January.

The Arizona is a fairly typical top-of-the-line gaming pc, which I retail at $3,000 (literally fuck rtx cards why are they so expensive).

Arizona Q119 Specs
Intel i7 8700K (liquid cooled)
RTX 2080ti
32GB DDR4-3000
500GB M.2 SSD & 1TB SSHD; 1.5 TB total storage
Blu-ray RW optical drive
Windows 10 Home
Wi-Fi Connectivity

There is a fairly major boon to UK and EU customers in this model. If you took the parts list and built an Arizona Q119 yourself at home, you would spend £3,767.40. Buying from TRCX, you spend only £2342.

I'll keep sep7afrens updated for when the store goes online, and I hope any of you who are shopping computers in the new year will check us out.

When the site goes live, you can find us at
