Meh, my biggest tech expense anymore is hdds. Server Storage + Backup = lots of $$
Next year I'm gonna buy a 12TB drive and stuff it in a usb 3 external enclosure so I can have a 2nd unified backup of everything on my server. Right now the backup is split between two GB ethernet Nas units. If one suffers a failure the whole data is lost so the 12TB drive will be a extra layer of security. Plus the higher transfer rate will be a big plus (6GBps vs 1GB Ethernet) Transferring 12TB over GB Ethernet would take 24 hrs (maybe little longer w/overhead) Over USB3 it'd take only 5hrs.

Why is living with parents viewed as shameful in American culture? I am 34 and my wife and children live in the same house as our parents. This is perfectly normal in most of the world as a very economical way to live and maintain family relations.

I save a portion of my paycheck every month. Whatever I have left over each month is split, half goes to savings in case of emergency. The other half is dumped into a special account that's to help with my retirement when the time comes. It's also "off the books" so if me and my wife ever split her lawyers can't touch it.

Nice blog post kys yourself

>> No.63393260

Even the rich live with their family in most of the world. This is a terrible excuse. What is so objectionable about your family?

>> No.63393268

America is the land of the self made man. It's not the land of the rich, it's always been a dream of opportunity. It's the belief that you could go out and stake land, build a house, and raise a family. It's not American to sit and live in the same spot for generations with a massive extended family, you're supposed to leave safety and take on the world.

That's why coming of age American dream stories encompass people running off without anything and hitching rides on the backs of trains and shit. It's about the struggle of life and the building of character and self worth that it creates. There's a reason rich kids that are mommies boys are always such dis-likable villains in american culture. Even Stacy and Chad characters are usually the villains of american sitcoms and cartoons. Being poor is part of being an American hero.

Well, with a chipped/modded ps1 you definitely can play whatever ps1 rom you burn properly into a CD.
The emulation community has grow bigger and rediscovered good titles that were unknown for the average gamer back in the days. A lot of them still as playable and visually appealing as modern mediocre games. Except for the big chunky pixels, thats why you need a CRT tv set or monitor and proper RGB connexion.
