Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

G’day, Wheelizens…Mid-Week Day really gets my goat.


Sven --

If I had to make a guess, capybaras ain’t kosher. OTOH, they don’t have cloven hooves and I’m pretty sure they don’t count as shellfish…

Hope that Mrs. Sven’s favored oak isn’t suffering from Sudden Oak Death Syndrome.

Congratters on going six weeks without a smoke.

FWIW, I’ve had good experiences with two ViewSonic monitors over the past (almost) twenty years.


While I couldn’t vote in yesterday’s gubernatorial runoff, I’m pleased my least-favorite candidate got his ass handed to him.

Good morning from hot and miserable SoCal!

Not sure about our oak tree -- it has some but not all symptoms of SOD. We’ll see what happens but I’m not hopeful. But then I’m rarely hopeful…about anything. Pessimism: the curse of the Bonk’s.

Hiya, Sven and…Mac!!

…at least four internal hard drive spots…

I hear that; glad my Mac Pro “cheesegrater” box has room for four HDs and two optical drives, too. Maaaaaan…Apple really blew it with the current “little black trash can” design. All of the post-production and audio users I know hated it because there was no room to shove drives, cards, etc. into the case.

Apple announced earlier this year they’re working on a “modular” Mac Pro which probably won’t be out until next year; really hope they’ve learned their lesson. (The “Pro” market only represents a single-digit percentage of overall sales but it’d be nice if they still value that segment…)

Pessimism: the curse of the Bonk’s.

The Arbuckles share that curse; is it really pessimism or merely acknowledgement of reality? 😉

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

Oak trees take a long time to die, so hopefully Mrs. Sven’s will be around for quite a while longer.

The case that Teh Younger bought has plenty of room, making it easy to work inside of, as well as allowing for good air flow (it came with both front and back fans). There are four drive bays, plus locations for two SATA SSD’s and one PCIe SSD. The integrated cable management system is also nice. He has it running now off a 256 Gb SSD, while a 3 Tb HDD should arrive this evening.
