Over a decade ago I said the phrase "What am I going to do with a 1G hard drive?".  Today I installed windows and the basic drivers and it all takes up 40G.

Never ask what you would do with a bigger hard drive, a faster computer, or a faster Internet connection; because you will find that one day no only will you use it, but it will be required.

My experience with the new Youtube comment system:

Recently I've been using Chrome to watch Youtube videos because Firefox doesn't get along with Flash on my PC.  Not long after, they decided to change the comment system to integrate with G+.  This has widely been seen as a bad idea.

For several days I thought it was just straight up broken, I couldn't comment on anything.  It kept insisting that I had to log in, but I already was logged in, I couldn't see my subscriptions otherwise.  Turns out that Chrome won't let me comment.  Youtube (a Google product) won't work with Chrome (another Google product).

For some idiotic reason, someone decided that allowing hyper links in the comment section was a good idea.  I now refuse to click on any link that shows up because every link I did click on was ether spam, trolls, or even a virus.  The best part about this problem is that the report link doesn't exist in Chrome and only shows up some of the time in Firefox.  Most of the time I can only report for really bad stuff like illegal content or harassment.  That's fine for the viruses, but won't work for the spam.  Spam isn't illegal, just bad form.

Then there's the unlimited sized comments.  This I can understand, and I think this is also where the only shred of thought was put.  If someone writes a 200 line comment, Youtube only shows the first few lines by default.  The problem is when you accidentally expand one of the huge spamy comments and you have to scroll three pages just to hide it again.

This is just for those who watch videos.  It gets even better for those who make videos.  There is no inbox any more, at least not one I can find.  Yes, the original inbox still exists  (if you can find it), but no comments go in there.  I don't get a lot of comments, so I like to know when I get them.  The only way for me to do that is to memorize the current number of comments on every video and check the video manager all the time.  I have 256 videos in my channel.

On a side note, I'm sorry to anyone who comments on any of my older videos.  I'll never know you did.

Please +YouTube  or +Google  or whoever, for the love of sanity, fix your shit.

At night, when I go to bed, I turn on a movie or a TV show or something.  This allows my mind to focus on something but not have to work for it, so I can wind down and fall asleep.  Obviously, I turn on the sleep timer so the TV doesn't just sit idle all night.

Tonight was different.  When the sleep timer ended, the TV did the exact opposite of turning off.  The volume cranked up and started blaring this terrible screeching noise and the screen started flashing.

I had just fallen asleep by the way. 

The cat, thinking quickly, jumps off the bed, where she was also asleep, and disappears.  I lunge at the TV and press the power button.  Nothing happens.  I press it again and hold it.  Nothing.  I briefly contemplate throwing the TV to the floor in the hopes of breaking it when instinctively I spin the TV around and yank the plug.

I hope a half an hour of sleep is good enough, because there's no way in hell I'm going back to bed.

And just to let you know, I did find the cat.  She's just as freaked out as I am, but otherwise fine.

If static on your TV is two analog singles interfering with each other or just general background radiation, why isn't static in color?

+corey little I had a funny feeling you would know the answer.  That explains a lot.

I feel like I should say this.  If you're ever working with a computer and it's asking you to do something that you don't want to, do a Google search (or whatever your preferred search engine is).  Chances are you will find away around the problem.

For example, I just upgraded to Windows 8.1.  During the final steps of the upgrade, it insisted that I crate a Windows Live account to log into the PC.  So I did a search and found the way around.

Knowledge is power and the Internet is a near infinite resource of knowledge.
