    Ahh, it's probably nothing, I just feel I should bring it up only after I'm better informed about it.

    Whoo, I managed to fix the air conditioner, or at least it's been working fine for about two hours. I had to change the capacitor, actually I changed it twice since the first time it got damaged almost immediately, I don't know why, perhaps I should've adjusted it tightly or maybe it was just a dud (at the very least, it had considerably (~8%) lower capacitance than expected).
    Ahh, it's much comfortable now.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    nice!

    How technical was that task? Was it just one capacitor to replace, or did you have first to know which identical piece of electronics was the one?
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    Nothing special, just a single capacitor, though as usual for me the biggest challenge is to muster up the courage knowing that a mistake can make everything break down.

    One of my uncles has just died, from COVID-19 related complications.

    Ouch. Condolences, man. That sucks.
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    Thank you.
    I'm bummed, about everything. No matter what I do, it never amounts to anything, problems still come up, pile up, cause damage and me and everybody around me ends up all the worse for it.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    Very sorry to hear about your uncle, and also how you feel.

    I think you've done a lot of cool things that you've shown us here.

    I was trying to come up with something, but Glenn said it better.

    I haven't had this happen to a family member, but I have to a person under my, so to say, supervision, and that sucked even without a family relation.
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    Thank you guys.
    There's a bit too much going on with my life right now.
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    Whoo, I managed to fix the air conditioner, or at least it's been working fine for about two hours.
    So it lasted a bit under a week, then it got damaged again. At that point I guess it could be something with the fan motor, maybe?

    Depends on the kind of damage, but it's hard to diagnose it on the Internet.
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    It's only slightly bulged, and measures 0.5 μF (down from 4.2, rated at 4). I guess that's different from the first one I changed, which ended up at 0 μF with no visible damage.

    It occurred to me that featherless velociraptors work as a modern example of things like angels becoming robed people with halos, viking helms getting horns, valkyries as beautiful women with wings, etc. in that even authors who are aware of the real thing opt to use the cooler version instead, and in the dinos' case it's not because of that's how other authors had been doing it for ages (or at least that's how it was a couple decades ago).
  • "you duck spawn, refined creature, you try to be cynical, yokel, but all that comes out of it is that you're a dunce!!!!! you duck plug!"
    Not to disagree, but I feel the gay-coded winged fella in a nightgown is not as cool as the Lovecraftian burning four-dimensional Moebius strip.

    I mean, yeah, folks kinda used to reptilian-looking dinos.

    In early 2012, 21 years after the original Civilization was released, a TV Tropes user named Tunafish claimed that a bug existed in Civilization that caused Gandhi to be much more aggressive. Tunafish did not provide any proof.[3][2] In November, the same information was added to Wikia.[3] According to Sid Meier, over the next two years, the story spread across the Internet, and each time someone doubted it, a link to a wiki was used as a proof.[2]

    TIL TVT responsible for nuclear Gandhi

    There's a similar story with X-COM. The first game had a bug where the difficulty was reset to the easiest value after loading, thus the game is fairly easy regardless of difficulty, however the second game is much harder, including at the easiest difficulty. A common claim that started on TVT and spread elsewhere was that the bug is still there, but that it was made to reset to the highest difficulty instead due to feedback about the first game being too easy. That's a myth though, the bug had been fixed and the game's difficulty was an unrelated decision.

    It's past midnight and I hear distant drumming outside my window. Seems like natives are restless.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    for some reason i am oddly intrigued by this page
    https://acmecrimenet.fandom.com/wiki/Kouryou_Squadron_Crystal_Exceeds
    this is a page describing a fan-setting in which some of the characters of Absolute Duo are a super sentai team

    My mother got her first shot of the COVID vaccine. Hopefully everything will work out before long.
  • "you duck spawn, refined creature, you try to be cynical, yokel, but all that comes out of it is that you're a dunce!!!!! you duck plug!"
    Good to hear that, for a change.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    That's heartening to know! I forget, have you been vaccinated yet?
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    Nopes, and it won't be for a while until those of us around my age without certain medical conditions (asthma doesn't count) and not medical professionals will get vaccinated.
  • Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
    Stay safe!

    Will do. Thanks!
    I've been toying around with this new (used) graphics card I got. 4 GB is not much for 3DCG work but it's certainly useful compared to what I had. Also other stuff.
  • ¿Donde está ese abarrotado mercado ahora? ~ Mercaderes inmemoriales
    I got a new phone (the battery of the one I had was swelling up and a replacement is hard to get by).
