All fixed. Almost 10 years in, it is still the most gorgeous Mac. Replacing thermal paste helped temperature, too.

Hardware repairs again this weekend. This MacBook Pro 17 with quad core i7 and matte display from 2011. Suffered from the usual GPU problem. Cleaned out, heatgunned the GPU, new thermal paste, its now like new again, and fans are quiet. I love this machine.

My LaserActive needs attention again... it truly is the monster truck of video game consoles.

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Dear Admins. Whats an efficient strategy to allow new user to register on my instance, but prevent the tons of bots / porn / spammer account requests? Right now, "Approval" is tough for me, as i do not have a lot of time to check, and thus dont' have the confidence that most requested accounts are actually legit people.


I want to be as cool as the person who made this sign

@joeo10 they also do one of these adapters with 4(!) microSD slots. You could end up with a 2TB iPod that way :-). I am quite happy with my 64GB one already

@joeo10 see other replies. Have not tried myself but I read 512gb works. It’s a nice system now, I ll upgrade the storage from 64GB if I should need it.
