  • So, after that extremely unplanned upgrade last night - which took forever even on an 8-core system with NVMe storage - my mouse had three broken legs. Basically it would get stuck about once a second, unfreeze, and immediately stick again.

    But I know this one. This has happened before. And I blogged about it so that if it ever happened again, I'd know exactly where to look for the solution.

    ...

    Oh, right. The solution to sudden mouse freezes after a Windows upgrade is to disable HDCP on your second monitor.

  • Get your SSDs now before the price goes up. (Tom's Hardware)

    Yep, you guessed it. Blockchain ruins everything.





Anime of the day is Midori no Hibi from 2004, in which, um. Wikipedia, any help?
Seiji Sawamura is the toughest student in his high school. His grades are not very good because he fights more than he studies, but he tends to protect the weaker students from bullies. A few classmates idolize him; one (Midori Kasugano from a different school) shyly loves him from afar; but most are just afraid of him, which has made it impossible for him to find a girlfriend. In desperation, he says to himself that he wants a girlfriend no matter who it is. He then notices a miniature Midori attached to where his right hand used to be.
Thanks Wikipedia. Makes total sense.

It's actually a really nice little show, despite the insane premise.
