How are you supposed to play Fallout 76?

Quit, because I just got disconnected from the server. No point in reconnecting, it’ll probably disconnect me again. Worst $65 game ever, clearly Bethesda doesn’t know how to make games.

qt5-base was updated in Arch Linux on December 10th

That’s 9 days ago, and Manjaro still hasn’t bothered providing an update. I could probably install the Arch package, but it would break a lot of stuff. Everything installed that relies on it, most likely would need to be recompiled, so I’d have to download a shit load of packages from Arch Linux.

If they ever provide an update, I’ll need to recompile FreeCAD after updating two AUR packages.

Fixed sleepmode in case of fuse mismatch

Sleep/standby mode would break when your emuNAND was on a different firmware version than your actual system NAND. This has been resolved now. So from now on you can run the latest and greatest firmware in emuNAND while at the same time keeping a lower firmware on your original system’s NAND. Nifty!

My emuNAND is higher then my system, and it works just fine. I’m not running SX OS 2.5 Beta, still 2.4, not even 2.4.1. To lazy to update it.

Maybe that bug only happens if you use your Switch.

I thought that bug only applied if you downgraded the sysNAND. What’s the point in downgrading the system NAND? You can’t boot without CFW if you do that.

I just woke my Switch up, so that bug is a lie.


She clearly doesn’t listen to anything I say

She said I’m growing a “small” beard, like it was news. Not sure I’d consider it small once it’s done growing.

I said sometime ago, I was going to grow an Honest Abe beard, she clearly wasn’t paying any attention when I said that.

And it’s been growing for sometime. Odd that she only noticed it yesterday.

BuyVM is a hobby?

They have a lot of money to be just a “hobby”. I doubt their block storage was cheap.

They might be a profitable hobby. I still like to consider them a real business, not a hobby. There’s more then one person working for them. What’s the difference between a business and a profitable hobby?

Did Manjaro stop providing updates?

Maybe. I can’t update some AUR packages, because one of them can’t find something, most likely it relies on something that Manjaro hasn’t bothered updating yet. The other package needs that package to be updated first.

Is there any easy way to switch to Arch Linux? Without reinstalling?

Neighbor spoofing is obvious

They don’t call from the same number, it just always starts like your number.

If it was a real call, the number wouldn’t be changed every time.

There are some numbers when people call it isn’t the same, like some doctor office, but the number might not start like your number. They’d leave a message, neighbor spoofers don’t leave messages. Only blank ones.

Good luck playing Fallout 76

Said the server wasn’t responding, then disconnected me.

That game wasn’t worth $65. Will Amazon give me a refund? Probably not.

Will probably buy a Toshiba external drive or two

They have a two year warranty, that’s better then Fantom Drives, and Fantom might use Toshiba drives anyways.

I actually need three, one to backup my backup drive, one to backup my movies drive, and one to backup my media drive.

Or buy two bigger ones, at least 5 TB, that’s probably only enough for the movies and backup drive though.

The movies drive is old, so it needs to be backed up. It might be partly backed up on the backup drive. That explains why the backup drive is full.

Good idea, buy one Toshiba 6 TB drive. That’s enough to backup the backup, and the movies drive.

WesternDick is cheaper for 6 TB, and 8 TB. The 8 TB is almost nine dollars left. But I have no Toshiba drives.

Are all those Toshiba drives 7200rpm or just the 4 TB one? I doubt the WesternDick one is. Doesn’t really matter though. It’ll still be faster then USB 2.0.

Manufacturer’s warranty can be requested from customer service. Click here to make a request to customer service.

On the WD drive, that’s pretty shitty, it won’t tell me how long the warranty is.

Died in one year. Warranty site shows it was out of warranty in 7 months.

A 7 month warranty? No thanks.

According to smartctl, my movies drive is 5900 rpm. It’s a Seagate 3 TB external drive. Oops, wrong drive, that’s the backup drive.

Can’t access SMART on the movies drive, gets an error.

Seagate doesn’t want you to know the RPM in Linux, tried various commands, either doesn’t work, or doesn’t show the RPM.

Do new Seagate external drives say the RPM in Linux? The drive could be from 2013. I’ll get the Toshiba anyways.

Two 3 TB Toshiba’s, would cost more then one 6 TB Toshiba. Toshiba doesn’t have an 8 TB of that model.

Or buy the 8 TB Fantom Drives one. A little more then the 6 TB Toshiba. Do they really use Toshiba drives in them? The warranty is less then the Toshiba though. Don’t buy from their site, it’s $300.

The drives might be on sale on Amazon, so the price will probably be higher on Christmas.
