    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Word is that today's opening was a sort of beta test, and still officially going live tomorrow. The first 20% of fulfilled orders each day will be prioritized for zip codes with the highest case and death rates.

    Ahh, I see that's the site that is forwarded from covidtests.gov, which was originally supposed to go live tomorrow.

    Teknikens Värld's infamous "moose test" strikes again

    That's surprising, is it not? Given how much of the weight should be down so low in an EV, I would have assumed it'd pass...although it's a heavy lump, too, and technically a "crossover", so perhaps the computer brains really do have more to do in it than I assumed.

    It's a Vizio. But, I've had power supply issues with 2 previous Samsungs (one TV and one PC monitor). So, I got my replacement power supply board in! Huzzah! Wait... So, now that I've actually taken the old board out to look at it more closely, I can see some browning around this...

    Herpaderp and general screw-ups thread

    My TV has bluetooth. But only as in input. It's to use the TV as basically a bluetooth speaker.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    The heated glass on our VW is much less effective than the actual HVAC defrost vents, and those are already pitiful in this car. It's not like the rear defrost, which is much better.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Our VW is the first-year e-Golf ("Special [pleb] edition"), so if that is a law, maybe this was low-volume-enough to get a waiver.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Are there truly invisible heated windshields? Our 2015 VW has one, and you can see a super fine hexagonal mesh pattern in the glass.

    I'm not him, but spend half my life in Wisconsin, and can vouch for that with my family. But...we can also be pretty clearly see in many cultural/societal/political aspects of life, as well.

    Yeah, the worst thing is when you have to start syncing two different systems, like a bus and a train. To make sure you catch the right train, you have to get the earlier bus, in case the "right" bus is running late...and in case that earlier bus is early, you have to get there extra early.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    My local plumber has been starting their phone calls with "How can we make you smile today?" Them: "Thank you for calling ___ plumbing. How can we make you smile today?" Me: "You can help me stop the shit water from backing up from my toilet into my shower."

    Super annoying that this TV only lasted 2 years (to the day, actually). Definitely just disposing of it by bringing it to an e-waste facility. I wasn't aware caps could hold a charge for that long...I assumed days, at most. Well, I'll just throw it in a FedEx box or something, until I can get...

    I am going to be replacing this power supply distribution board in my television. I can see there are capacitors on it. 1) What do I need to know to not hurt myself once I have the circuit board removed? 2) Should I put it in a cardboard Box, or paper bag or something? 3)How long do you...
