@tom my top tier lotion is eucerin intensive repair. i live in a very dry place, the danger of scaliness is real even without constant handwashing
@Ormur yeah 12GB should be a noticeable difference. of course there are tricks to the whole thing tho -- i.e. is the model upgradeable at all, how many slots are actually on the board, etc. i'm told performance suffers if the DIMMs are different capacities but i don't think it should cancel out the benefits of just having more RAM
COVID19-adjacent, media, unions
The NewsGuild is calling on Congress to make funds available to keep news outlets and journalists on the job, providing life-saving information to the populace. I voted with my local last night to support the effort. #union
If you feel strongly, please sign the petition.
@Ormur tbh i think it's really more about market forces in this case. pressure for more powerful home computers has really eased off as people shifted more to phones/tablets. but on the bright side a high-end machine from 5-7 years ago is still totally usable
@Ormur i guess the other question is: how much memory does the old laptop have, and were you happy with its performance? if it was 8GB (or less!) and you were satisfied, 8GB will probably suit you fine on a newer machine
@Ormur 8GB would probably be adequate, just might get sluggish under the load of a lot of tabs. i got used to 16GB a while back, so i'm spoiled. if you were buying a desktop i'd say sure, improve it later, but with a laptop it might be impossible or impractical to upgrade components - i don't really have any insight on which models are better or worse for that. so you should buy one with specs you're willing to live with for a while
@Ormur in PCs brand is near meaningless so you gotta look at the specs. basically your use case indicates you want one with a lot of RAM (16GB probably - 8GB is the bare minimum) and you don't care about the video card
@Ferrovore i figured people were already going down that rathole, no pun intended
my favorite takeaways:
- the art always sold well at the PBS auction
- the artist only stopped selling there because some viewers called in to complain one year, so the station stopped auctioning erotic art altogether in fear of losing their FCC license
going back in time to tell myself in the early aughts that in 20 years newsweek would write an article about furry artist biohazard https://www.newsweek.com/last-week-tonight-john-oliver-rat-erotica-brian-swords-painting-furry-art-auction-1495063?amp=1&utm_source=Public&utm_medium=Feed&utm_campaign=Distribution&__twitter_impression=true

food prep, re: groceries
@phenokage lasagna's pretty easy and fun! a bit labor intensive but at least you get to eat it for several days
You know that old saying, "the person who understands you best is a weird tree."
