Sprint is trying to sell me a flip phone Sprint is trying to sell me a flip phone

My ad blocker crashed, and this is what I’m seeing on Kinja:

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Welcome all, to another edition of Fur Face Friday, your source for the best pets of the Kinjaverse! No time to chat this week, so let’s get to it!

Cardbrrrrrrrrrrrrrt Cardbrrrrrrrrrrrrrt

Yeah I know it’s actually foam board and plywood, sorry for the misleading title.

The end of Opportunity? The end of Opportunity?

The Atlantic has a big story on a new deadline to revive the Opportunity rover on Mars:

The heatsink is too damn big! The heatsink is too damn big!

So I hit a snag with my build from earlier this summer. I apparently spent so much time worrying about whether the massive Noctua NH-D15 cooler was too tall to fit in the case (it fits, but it has at most a few mm to spare) that I neglected to consider whether it would actually fit properly on the motherboard (after…

It's done! It's done!

After KingTChalla’s post earlier today, I decided to challenge myself.

Bike-shares in China Bike-shares in China

So I missed these when The Atlantic posted their first gallery, but they’ve now posted a second, both with some amazing pictures of the ongoing (or possibly already burst) dockless bike-share bubble. The sheer magnitude is impressive, the waste is also staggering.

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for all of Kinja’s best pets to come out and play! It’s also a day that ends in ‘y’, which means it’s time for Kinja weirdness! I’m not talking about the fact Kinja is duplicating most of my replies, or that ominous bookmark thing, I’m talking about permalinks not actually liking to…

City Street Directions City Street Directions

So this was kind of cool:

New Toys! New Toys!

Despite whining about RAM prices as recently as yesterday morning, I’ve pulled the trigger on some stuff, some of which is now here (though the case won’t get here until Tuesday, expedited shipping is apparently expensive for steel boxes ).

And I thought our coins were inconvenient... And I thought our coins were inconvenient...

Almost there Google, keep working at it!

Well this is the most annoying thing ever Well this is the most annoying thing ever

I have a tiny (maybe 2mm long) bug that has somehow gotten behind the glass (possibly even behind the lcd panel) on one of my monitors, and is just crawling around in there. Either that or I have been subject to a very weird hack. I imagine it will have a hard time getting out, so I think my best hope is to wait for…

Well so much for that (politicalish) Well so much for that (politicalish)

I’m not surprised, this always seemed unlikely. I supposed you can say that Trump played Kim, given that Kim blew up his nuclear test facility earlier today, but on the other hand, most assessments were that the facility had been damaged beyond repair by the nuclear tests so it’s not much of a loss for North Korea. On…

The repo industry today The repo industry today

The Washington Post has an interesting article on the repo business, focusing on their use of license plate readers to find cars.

Cellphones I have owned Cellphones I have owned

I’m awake, bored, and thanks to this post, thinking about old cellphones, so please join me in reviewing my cell phones...

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Good morning, the week has flown by (for me at least), which means it is time for Fur Face Friday! I really don’t know where the week went, which is good because my summer vacation is rapidly approaching (T-minus 3 weeks until I’m on a plane to Europe, I’ll try to photograph some high-quality foreign dogs), and bad…

Bent Wheels Bent Wheels

When I bought my S60 last fall, the shop that did the PPI said I needed new shocks and struts. The car does ride a bit rough, so I can believe that, but two subsequent shops have told me that the suspension seems fine to them. I had been tempted to do the replacement (maybe even getting some fancy Bilstien B6's), but…

Amazon delivery driver just stopped by with a very non-traditional delivery van:

Fur Face Friday Fur Face Friday

Greetings everyone! We’ve made it to another Friday! Despite the fact it snowed here yesterday morning, I am super excited that the weather here finally seems to be trending towards spring, and hopefully it is doing the same where you are. In any event, down to the serious business of Fur Face Friday!
