  Marmite
Posted by: Toasty - November 16th, 2017, 2:43 pm - Forum: General Chat - Replies (3)

Had a guy here from the UK at work who brought marmite.

He had me sample it off of a spoon, which was terrible. It was like soy sauce and bouillon cubes ground up.

On the other hand, I would imagine a thin layer on bread might actually be good.

What do you guys do with this stuff?

  Weird Movies
Posted by: GrandMastaThief - November 15th, 2017, 11:16 pm - Forum: Music & Entertainment - No Replies

Anyone like weird movies? Two of the weirdest movies I have ever seen were Caligula and Jacob's Ladder. I recommend both of them but never watch them stoned, they are enough of a mind screw as it is.

  Bit4.Me File Sharing
Posted by: Toasty - November 11th, 2017, 5:05 am - Forum: Technology - Replies (5)

For those of you that don't know, I also run a file sharing site (https://bit4.me/). I'm looking for input on the site, and figured everybody here is probably the best group of people to ask.

Differentiatiors:
 - There are no premium accounts, so no upload / download caps (except your or my connection)
 - No ads anywhere, no captchas
 - Partially built out API for integrations
 - Extreme ease of use.

What you do is upload a file and get a short code or URL back from the site (123, 234, etc). You can remember just this code and download the file later on a different computer, or transfer pictures from your phone to your computer to friends, without being compressed or resized.


What I'd like
Try the site out, use it a few times to share files whenever you need to (send the spouse a song, picture, video... Send text docs). Even have people you know use it if you want. Let me know what your experience was with the site. Easy? Confusing? Slow? Fast? etc.


Why?
I've spent hours documenting and preparing to eventually change the back end hardware of that site. Nobody will see a difference, but I could (within a week) take this site to scale over 15TB of storage, and with that technology I could go much further with ease. Likewise, it saves a ton of power -- the design will turn on and off servers depending on storage space needed. I'd like to know if the site provides value to people, and if so, then I can build it up from there.

...that Penn and Teller were having an argument on a very

Posted by: Toasty - November 8th, 2017, 2:56 am - Forum: YouN00b Site Information - No Replies

As many of you know, there were issues with a lot of ISPs over the last few days, mine included.

I have not noticed any upstream issues, but I've had a lot of dropped packets, high latency, etc while accessing some sites (some of them CDNs).

Let me know if you're having any issues using YN, even if there's really nothing I can do, I'd like to have an idea the impact.

I'm in a rare situation where I met my wife right as I was nearly done using RE. Consequently, I have a PC that is from that era that I've hopped on right now -- at one point, YN actually ran off of it.

Unsurprisingly, I have a bad habit of saving damn near everything, gigs upon gigs of shit I don't need or have a good reason to keep.

I think you all may get some appreciation out of my data hoarding:

  General Self Defense Thread
Posted by: Banned - November 5th, 2017, 3:56 pm - Forum: Fitness and Fighting - Replies (8)

Have you been in a lot of fights?  Have you never been in a fight?  Do you take martial arts?  Discuss how you defend yourself here.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

My first rule of self defense is to never discuss how you defend yourself with people you know in real life.  You never know when your best friend might one day become your worst enemy and you find yourself in a situation where you have to fend off somebody you once trusted.  The last thing you would want them to know in that situation is what you will do when they try to attack you.

That being said...I know none of you in real life, so this should just be a fun discussion.

I have only been in a handful of fights, none of which had a definite winner or loser to speak of.  They all pretty much just kind of fizzled out with both the attacker and me deciding that there was nothing left to gain and to continue would be a waste of effort that wouldn't yield any truly beneficial result anyway. 

I am a firm believer that when it comes to fighting, you need to play the hand you're dealt without trying to bluff.  If you're not fast, don't try to fight like someone who is.  If you're not strong, don't try to use brute strength.  If you're neither, then you need to run.  That being said...I have always been fat, so speed was never on my side.  For that reason, running or trying to land a solid punch has never been something I tried to do.  However, I have a lot of strength, high endurance, but low stamina.  Taking that into consideration, I try to end fights quickly, and I try to do it with my grip.  So if somebody tries to attack me, I will do whatever I can (while undoubtedly taking a few hits to the chops in the process) to get behind the attacker and wrap an arm around his neck and just pull until he stops moving.  If that doesn't calm him down, I'll bring him to the ground and get on top.  These are how most of the fights I've been involved with have ended. I try to fight with some kind of honor. If someone is down, I don't kick them. If anything, I'll help them up. Worst case scenario, they want to keep going, so I hold on to them until cops arrive. That scenario has never happened.

So I guess the best way to describe my fighting style is not really fighting at all.  I am more of a restrainer or a defuser.

How about you?
