I brought that cheap HP monitor that made a high pitch whine noise back to Micro Center today, and replaced it with a Dell, but not the cheap Dell that I had originally thought about getting. I spent a whole $245 plus tax. Fauwncy. But it’s much nicer.
I’ve been keeping an eye out on for holiday deals on monitors for my home office. I found this HP 24" IPS 1440p monitor with some extra gimmicks like USB-C video input and a wireless charging pad built into the base for $150 at Micro Center, but it may be a dud.
Since there’s a long and rich history of people porting the Google Camera app from the Pixel phones over to all sorts of other phones, the signature new feature of the Pixel 3 lineup, Night Mode, is now available to phones that can run the GCam port.
Oliver loves having me work at home. So much so that when I’m sitting in my desk chair, he stands up on his back feet, stretches his paws up to my lap, and bugs me to pay attention to him. This most often happens when he wants me to move to the couch so he can take a nap next to me. But he has a backup option!
Hey, you, person shopping for a new phone this holiday season but after Black Friday and Cyber Monday! I know about phones, especially unlocked ones! I pay too much attention to them even though both I and my wife have perfectly good phones we don’t plan to replace anytime soon. My OCD is your gain!
This afternoon I found myself behind this E400 wagon with a Very Good Boy in the back, and even a fine mesh separator between the back seats and cargo area. Every time the car pulled away from a light, he’d sit back down, and every time the car stopped, he’d hang down for a few beats then pop back up. IT. WAS. AWESOME.
When I started working from home, I had a very nice desk setup—complete with keyboard tray!—with a chair that was basically a dining chair rather than something that you could sit in all day. I’ve wanted something more comfy, but didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on it. Thus began too much chair shopping.
When we got my wife’s CX-5 back in August, Android Auto was one of our select few gottahaveit features. But the CX-5 was the car we liked the most, and it didn’t have Android Auto. We knew there would be a retrofit available at some point, but specific information was scarce. That was good enough for us to keep the…
One of the Toyobaru dudebros at my gym (who personal trains people but isn’t a gym employee) pulled up next to my car while I was chilling before the gym. On my way in I noticed this hat on his dash that I had never noticed before.
Today I happened to find myself in the parking lot of a mediocre-ly fancy apartment complex that’s “fancy” because of the specific part of town in which it’s located, but is actually in the part of that part of town that’s right next to a damn interstate. In the parking lot under some trees sat this 928 with color…
Speaking as a member of the tribe, I’m pretty sure the only thing Bill Goldberg is doing on Christmas is going to the movies and eating Chinese food.
Trading in a commute for working at home has created a proportional increase of cat vs. DOTS pics.
A couple months ago when I posted that this i8 Roadster had recently appeared in my enthusiastically BMW-obsessed neighbor’s driveway, several of you suggested that the New Jersey plates on a car here in Maryland meant it was something to do with BMW NA headquarters in NJ. That theory might be correct.
My Essential PH-1 has no headphone jack. While this is less than ideal, it doesn’t bother me much, because I don’t use wired headphones that often. At worst, it’s a minor inconvenience on the rare occasion where I might want/need to plug in to some kind of audio system, but I don’t have the dongle with me. But now,…
Sonic Grey is the best Civic hatchback color, and now it can be had on the Type R. Also, all 2019 Civics including the Type R replace the infernal motherfucking capacitive touch volume non-buttons with a knob!
My neighborhood, which I moved into this year, put out flyers about organized trick or treating hours and activities. Because of this, I thought it would be popular, and bought a big bag of candy to give to the kids. I still have the overwhelming majority of that candy.
You know how I posted about my recently-assembled-by-me home office, and I implied that I might be spending some more time in it? Well, my job status at the moment isn’t quite resolved, but I guess enough of it is in place where I can blab about it here.
This little bastard leads a life of leisure and just assumes hippiefied cat food will always be there, poop will always be scooped, and all he has to do in return is follow me around the house and look cute.
