Re: Random Chit Chat

You know, now that I think about it, I question why I even post on this site at all. The newer members have completely ruined everything I used to like about it. We used to be able to have actual...

Re: Jokes N Stuff!

The primary things I find personally offensive are people making claims to speak on my behalf (often involving statements that I find truly heinous,) and and those who decide to publicly torment me...

Re: Jokes N Stuff!

My father yells at me for it as well. What he doesn't seem to understand is that I am often physically incapable of projecting my voice at a higher volume.

Re: Jokes N Stuff!

Reminds me of a conversation I had with my mother yesterday. She kept asking me to repeat myself, because I talk too quietly , before eventually giving up and saying, "pretend that I'm deaf." So, I...

It's something that's available on select high-end tablets, such as the Microsoft Surface, and various Thinkpads. It's still vastly inferior to a real keyboard, assuming you know how to type, but I...

Re: Random Chit Chat

A digitizer pen for handwriting recognition needs to become a standard accessory for all tablets. This is so vastly superior to any touch keyboard I've tried.

My father has an ASUS T100TA, with full Windows 10, a keyboard dock, and something like 13 hours of battery life. They seem to be selling for about $80 on eBay right now. If you don't mind the...

Re: Random Chit Chat

Did you have tracking software installed on it? If not, was it an iPad? Apple installs it by default. I'm not sure about any other manufacturers.

Re: Random Chit Chat

It's slightly bent in the keyboard area. I can likely take it apart and fix it. Regardless, everything works fine, and it's certainly worth WAY more than I paid for it, so I'm not exactly complaining.

Re: Random Chit Chat

Having locks re-keyed should not be expensive. It was $5 last time I had it done.

Also, do you have the "Habitat for Humanity Re-store" in your area? Their prices wildly vary, but I've seen...

Re: Random Chit Chat

It's a phrase my sibling often uses as a response to especially heinous signs of modern society's ongoing spiral into dystopia. I didn't mean for it to be taken as any endorsement of religion.

I've lost count. Several have succeeded. One attempted to run me off the top of an overpass, which would surely have resulted in my death.

Re: Random Chit Chat

I just checked, and the cheapest seems to be $138 shipped. That's 4.5 times as much.

For what it's worth, the typical eBay price is about $80 each.
