OMG something on my new PC rig is vibrating at just the right frequency and I want to throw it in a lake

@lmorchard I should clarify... I think there's a solid 3 months without raiding. I'm not hardcore RPing, but I suspect that would extend the storylines a bit. It's been a decent expansion as a solo-er

@lmorchard I've enjoyed the expansion and a new content patch on the way. Not a lot of alt leveling joy IMO though. If you raid (which I don't) there's a good 3 months in it for returning players ATM

Before I put this on my computer, anyone know what company this is?

Nerds think they're so smart, but look at how long it took Linus Torvalds to understand that maybe, just maybe his abrasive comments might actually hurt someone. Decades of lacking introspection. If he can make that mistake, so can other nerds, and they do, all the time. Nerds aren't some kind of enlightened cult. They're just people who spend a lot of energy on one thing, usually to the detriment of everything else, including people skills.

@Csalzman @dzombak At 3 feet, I'd look into pipe clamps. Bar clamps at that length will flex under pressure. Not sure what's being made, but flex in your clamps can transfer into the material. Harbor Freight isn't bad for clamps in my experience

Bird scooters have arrived in the next town over from me. Eagerly awaiting the pearl-clutching reaction when someone gets hit on one. Betting on this weekend. "Local" paper's reaction should be fun.
