      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

i can't vouch for how effective this is, or really anything about it aside from what is readily apparent on the front page of the website - but it sounds interesting. I learned about this when i was, at one time, researching to build a new gaming/video editing computer a few years ago. ended up getting an off the shelf laptop instead, though. basically, this software helps researchers use your computer's resources to crunch numbers etc - the results of which are then sent back to the researchers for analysis. i'm tempted to try and help, but i dont like the idea of my laptop running 24hrs a day verses a desktop.

Mine has one plug for power, but also plugged in are the extra monitor, keyboard, and mouse, not to mention the backup drive. That extra monitor, of course, comes with a power cord, as does the drive. Total number of cords plugged into the computer: 5. Number hanging down from the table to the battery backup unit: 3.

 

Pete, you don't have a computer problem, but a dust and hair problem. Get one of those robo-vaccuum cleaners. Wife got a Roomba and it has cut down significantly on the dog hair and dunes. It does it while she sits on the porch and reads. I'm pretty sure it's more indispensable than I am now. ;)

I had a roomba, worked great but the housekeeper didn't like it so we gave it to Goodwill. My cats never stop shedding and like to flop on the key board. That's the problem.

 

...I count six cords hanging down,wtf.

1: how did you run all of those off the laptop VGA?

2: why?

1. The 8740w has ATI FirePro M7820 graphics, so when paired with the optional docking station you can connect multiple external displays.

The only reason you can't easily connect more monitors to the 8740w is the limited number of display port connections on the dock.

 

2. Obviously watching more tasks and/or using different or the same programs in conjunction with each other...otherwise you would be spending time switching tabs which is pain in the ass.

Having had both, dogs are way messier. Especially big dogs. Most especially big dogs with ready access to a pond, sand, and mud. Cats pretty much never go in ponds at all, though there was this one hilarious incident...

yea, there's your problem straight away. Messes are normal, they're even healthy. Cats - well... I like GSD's. Always have always will. Life is messy.

Cats kill rodents and are cool critters to have around too. I don't have one now, but will again.

This is my fifth build. Nothing fancy, just something to get me through the summer. It was actually a computer that a co-worker got "sick" of and left it at work, and I just revived it with some more storage and the monitors (both on craigslist for $70). I don't like the mATX mobo/case, there's barely any room in it for cable management and hard drive space.

 

Probably going to flip the monitors for double what I paid and get one bigger IPS monitor. The computer will do for now, unless I can get some extra cash flow in and build some 3-way GPU computer I've been dreaming about.

 

And if anyone needs vga/dvi cables or displayport cables, let me know. I have literally, boxes, of them that we're going to throw out at work. Just shoot me the shipping via paypal.

hey I don't have a GSD anymore - don't live in the kind of circumstances that would provide a good home for a GSD - yet..

 

I'm in a shruburban wasteland. Not a fitting home for such a noble animal.

They are regal, but man, when Fluffy would shake it looked like "Pig Pen" from Peanuts. Just a cloud of dirt and hair.

After all this talk about fur...figured I'd clean a few of the laptops that I take in the field,internally and externally...other then the usually build up of dust and what not,what always amazes me is the amount of hair that comes out,when blowing & vacuuming the keyboards...all kinds of hair,human and animal.
