Spammers are getting smart. One just posted this in the "post count transfer" thread

"If you want to try and limit the number of people just signing up and selling things, I believe a 15 post count is too small a number and too easy for someone to post spam posts to reach this number."

It's a 3 post count limit, but dang, they're honing their craft! If they hadn't put a Russian website in their signature, I probably would've still banned them, but I would've spent an extra 10 seconds thinking about it at least.

^^ So if a mod has the power to remove a post, that would lower the count right and won't count towards the post total?

Re: If there's two posts from Kev above this one, something's gone horribly wrong.

Probably... I think if I delete it, then yes.

(If it looks like I am responding to nobody, it's because curiosity got the best of me and I deleted Kev's post to see if his post count went down.)

Re: That's why you don't put out just for dinner, folks.

Okay, random tech question -- if you have a newer laptop that charges via USB-C cable, is there any danger in using just any random USB-C cable (either plugged into a USB port on an outlet or using a plug adapter) vs. using the actual power cable that came with it, with a power block in the middle? Just wondering how important that power block is, or if there's anything wrong with charging a device with any other cord. I have stepkids who can't keep track of any electronics cords, and I find one of them constantly stealing the USB-C out of the Switch to charge his Chromebook. Anything wrong with that? Or should I just buy him a new generic USB-C and tell him to keep track of it this time?

Not an expert by any means but I feel like if it's good enough for a Switch, it's probably good enough for a Chromebook? This article - https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing ... via-usb-c/ - seems to say it's fine as long as it's a trusted make, which I'd say Nintendo is.

Killer, thanks man. I'd like him not to steal the one out of the Switch, as he kind of sucks at putting things back when he's done, so thinking I'd just get some generic USB-Cs and make sure we have plenty of those on hand. Our phones all take those too, so they're nice to have anyway.

I think the only issue you can have in this day and age is slow charging. The device should manage the power coming in via the USB-C port to make sure nothing is damaged, but if the block is a low amp block designed to charge a small device, it may not provide as much juice to charge at maximum speed for some devices. Unless the charging seems really slow, don't worry about it.

Only Metallica fans will get it.

Hey guys

My cousin Cassidy, she's 21 and was in a really bad car accident on Sunday night. She's been in critical condition for several days with two broken legs with compound fractures in both, a broken jaw, broken arm, wrist, broken shin in three places, broken pelvis and broken hip, she's in a medically induced coma, they're screening her brain for blood flow, she has a lacerated kidney and as my uncle (her father) put it, she's basically being held together with pins and plates.

On monday she had a 12 hour surgery just to try and keep her alive.

I wasn't going to post this here, I had messaged some people privately as my family asked us to keep this private until we know what kind of outcome to expect, it's very touch and go right now.

However, she needs all the prayers she can get, so if you guys can keep her in your prayers, or if you don't pray, just say a quick one for her. She's a great kid, works in hospitals as a nurse and she is far too young to have to go through this.

Appreciate the love and support guys. You are the best.
