  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Yeah as a nickname he has been called that for many years. From what I understand though is that particular version, from Homecoming, is known as Spidey. Much like The Spider, Spiderman 2211 or Miles Morales Spiderman.

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    @Juxtapose Yeah I wouldn't be able to tell you. All I know about it is that I had read some comics as a kid where he was more like he is in Homecoming. I know over the years I have heard and read about that particular version of Spiderman being called Spidey as a nickname to differentiate him from the more classic version of the character.

  • What Did You Buy Recently?

    The Surface Book? I almost got one of those because it has an Nvidia GPU (my PC GPU just died a week or so ago, so my SP4 is basically more powerful than my desktop PC ATM) and better battery life, but they do cost a good bit more. They're pretty much the same as what I got with the addition of a more laptop-like keyboard (that's included, type covers still aren't included with normal SP4s), and GPU that is in said keyboard along with a better battery. I also believe the tablet is missing the kickstand in that version, as the screen is held up by the keyboard.

    My only issue so far has been with the Bluetooth. From what I can see, it's a common issue due to the poor wifi/Bluetooth chip they use in them, when I had my mouse (Logitech MX Anywhere 2) via Bluetooth, the internet speed slows to a crawl, slower than the days on 28.8 dial-up. The same thing happened when connecting an Xbone controller via Bluetooth. So now I just use the USB connector that came with my mouse to connect it, and connect Xbone controllers via a micro USB cable.

    Running your own business looks to be the most exhausting thing in the damn world.

    It's all encompassing.

    I got a buddy running a mid sized reno company. Too big to be small, too small to be big and therein lies the problem.

    When you're a big company that's making money, you can afford to delegate and hire professionals to deal with the details. Where the devil lies.

    When you're a tiny company, you can take one or two jobs. Set it up, knock it down, line up the next one. Your overhead is less so not as much pressure to keep the business moving.

    The mid sized companies have got the worst of it. Where they're almost big and have all the pressures of the big company but not the money or manpower to effectively deal with it. Can't rely on one job at a time, always have to overbook yourself otherwise your workers can't work and there's too much to handle for one guy but you can't afford to dump a good salary into a professional to fix it so you hire an OK guy to do it for shit and they move on and only do so well and rinse and repeat ad nauseum.

    I feel for anyone in that position.

  • Fixing Red light of death PS3

    Sso I bought an original PS3 for 30 bucks. I wanted one because it has the ps2 backwards compatibility. These are old machines though and lots of them get the red or yellow light of death.

    What causes this ? overheating.

    So I took it apart, and since I have no thermal paste , I cant finish it tonight, ill try to finish for tomorrow.

    Here are some pics....

    Unless you're actually doing yourself an injury, Tim, that pain is your body stretching for the first time in a long time. If your TV binge watching posts are anything to go by, it might also be it singing out praises to you because you were about to atrophy.
