ujlseseqgawrg4d
That's the drives performance
jmkrpbmvfagcb4d
It's only going to get faster from there
igxzchcw4d
yeah i saw seagate firecuda is 5GB/s
gboydnnt4d
pretty sick
ybifsquwypwzt4d
On my Blade 15 with a WD SN750, CrystalDiskMark reports 3.5GBs read and 2.6GBs write

The only way for me to get a noticeable difference like you saw is to wait
nqvebknofrgqd4d
I seriously think anyone with a similar MBP that has a few bucks and an afternoon of time should do the upgrade. That's a huge noticeable bump for a little cost
mdpkjtlftgnhx4d
(especially if you're doing anything with video)
phqvvcsexxt4d
howโ€™s your 2015 13" holding up? Mine has been used and abused and has held up pretty well, but is just generally slow now
efwmileurzy4d
getting the 2020 13" soon to replace it
amhoigrpkax4d
this one def needs a battery replacement, but still not sure if I should sell it or try fix it and sell it or keep it as a backup machine
gtkhtrervpnhinu4d
oycgkgvbtxrujmht you mentioned Mavic Air 2 yesterday. Iโ€™m going to order my first drone soon and was thinking of the Mavic Mini. Would you (or anyone else on here) recommend that as a good starter drone or something else? The primary use case would be nature video clips via Youtube.
lbzwhmmfiorotjz4d
The Mini is definitely a good beginner drone; you should definitely double-check and search for YouTube videos made with the Mavic Mini to see if the quality meets your standards though, but from what I recall, the videos were good quality
otijzl4d
do y'all got anythinng for sweaty hands?
ofcuhzau4d
i don't necessarily feel it's all that slow? i run high sierra though, haven't bothered upgrading.. the ssd upgrade helps a bit speed wise i think
bksczjrf4d
it's also worth reseting the SMC and PRAM etc to see if it helps
jytmxrwg4d
ejtznwp mountain bike gloves or something perhaps?
qtzgceop4d
or carry a bottle of talcum powder
xfdlbjuh4d
my main apps are basically safari + terminal, i rarely run other apps
uhertauq4d
which probalby helps a ton
qismalud4d
i was running virtualbox/winxp recently and seemed fine to me
doporojw4d
on the other hand i do end up with 15 safari windows with 10+ tabs on each
firxwqlu4d
so basically hundreds of browser windows open
fsiwzbkd4d
haha
goolxetlkob3d
interesting. yeah Iโ€™m similar - mainly terminal + web browser, but still having to hard reboot it 1+ times / day now as it sometimes just freezes completely and often beachballs while running basic things at random (e.g. changing browser tabs). I tried reformatting it and clean installing everything a while back but it didnโ€™t really help. The battery only lasts a few hours at most and dies unpredictably.
sbyjlkwwedg3d
you upgraded from the SSD it came with to a better one?
ziimjjpp3d
ermknilydejh yes, had a 256GB ssd and upgraded to 1TB, plus the speed boost.. i don't have any freezing or reboot issues before and after
xkiyokji3d
where are you located btw? if you're in thailand i can share exactly what i ordered from lazada haha
dsvcylwm3d
hard rebooting it daily sounds brutal
fcexbesf3d
i guess you've already tried the SMC/PRAM resets
dvghtauk3d
my battery dies suddenly when the charge gets down to around 5-10% , but that doesn't cause me any issues, i just start back up and it reloads everything more or less
yyibmlcx3d
i generally try to plug it back in by the time it gets to 10%
ttowmlvs3d
when i opened up the laptop to install the ssd i noticed one of the battery packs was already swollen.. maybe i'll replace the batteries in a year or something, i'm not in a huge rush about that
fwfkmtli3d
i still get about i 4-6 hours battery life maybe?
bdkfqvhv3d
I think that the best bang for buck macbook wise has gotta be to buy a used 15" mid-2015 w/ 16GB RAM and then upgrade the SSD, kinda tempted to do that now that I know about this SSD upgrade path
micuwtqx3d
the 15" gets a significantly bigger boost, due to faster PCIe
slolfpkc3d
been on a 13" since 2013 and feeling like a larger display would be nice to have heh, but if i was traveling a lot i'd still stick with a 13".. i'd probably seriously consider the 2020 macbook air
ewnjpppy3d
2020 MBA is actually more powerful than the early-2015 MBP
muxbeyqb3d
the SSD upgrade and the adapter and tools etc probably only cost me $160
ickxrgnlsoq3d
yeah the 2015 15" is really nice. I looked at some used ones but ultimately decided to just get the 2020 13"
lynkubnxbsi3d
Iโ€™m in Switzerland
znzwuuupzxx3d
yeah had the same dying at < 10% for a while, but now itโ€™s more like 30-40% is already dodgy ๐Ÿ˜„
alwelxm3d
another tim ferris hater? ๐Ÿ˜›
umpxfui3d
haha great open mind man, keep at it. You will learn a ton ๐Ÿ˜‰
jkfvqak3d
rock climbing - the powders does the job
yyazbnlj3d
Iโ€™m a fan of Tim Ferris I suppose
xcjglun3d
so much to learn from him, naysayers can hate, that's their job ๐Ÿ˜›
suqohyltm3d
Ah that pouch is for powder? I usually just load it up with skittles.
wzlacxnpt3d
Makes a nice snack while reloading my grip strength.
ermqwq3d
mrvisser as star in "Free Yolo", climbing el capiitan with skittles
bhuqrqex3d
make sure no one asks to use your skittle bag though, they'll be in for a surprise
eaxdeyni3d
M&Ms go in mine
rllhjh3d
anyone travel with a coffee maker of some kind? If so what do you recommend
fwzxmlgoefxmh3d
Aeropress
xllatgtvspvhk3d
Can buy at Starbucks
lpnyetmakquqd3d
Failing that, the little Vietnamese coffee cups are highly portable and do a decent job depending on your preference
kahm3d
I really like the coffee made with a Moka, but you need a stove for that one
qlvklrpp3d
ktedkhj i suspect freshly ground coffee beans is the main thing, if you care about the taste.. then all you really need is a metal mesh filter you can put over the cup, stick the grinds in, and pour hot water over top
enkauv3d
More for a chemical fix when I end up in an apt without a machine ๐Ÿ˜…
kaiadhhfhmtof2d
I have a travel/camping pour over and a camping mug. Love it, it goes with me everywhere
gpxhvmt2d
Hi, I'm new in the coffee maker topic, is there are a portable device for grind your own coffee beans?
vjjmllolvm2d
udbgalc I had aeropress, but currently I changed to v60. I also have Comandante hand grinder.
kmdyrkfukd2d
I would check out Kalita too as an alternative to v60.
vktfgfeulhqtw2d
Grinding your own beans is essential for taste, but I'm not satisfied with any portable grinder I've tried
ggqttzlyroyzc2d
Most appear made to look good on a cafe shelf and that's it
qazzzxdnbe2d
Any good one is going to be $100+ minimum ๐Ÿ˜ž
etoxiwhluo2d
I think this is the cheapest decent one - www.madebyknock.com/store/p52/Aergrind.html
hgofhrmlaswzgyva2d
I got reminded of this recently www.youtube.com/watch?v=rw2nkoGLhrE, has some contextual political humor but still funny.
ldwqjnwmoji2d
gtrobtke2d
dang, slack not opening it.. anyways seems like a good hand grinder for coffee.. weight is 9.4 oz
gsssr2d
I second getting a Comandante coffee grinder if youโ€™re serious. Itโ€™s heavy and expensive though, and I get asked about it by the x-ray on every airport
hbaxvmklau2d
Yes, the x-ray thing is real
ookxjsqkgu2d
The reason is because it looks like a pipe-bomb on x-ray
wgpshuftng2d
I think I've gotten the chemical test 3x now ๐Ÿ˜„
bsowklwbxr2d
That was my 1st grinder. It grinds. Inconsistently. Also about 2x longer than Comandante.

If someone wants to stat it's probably best of the cheapest.
wmflrfod2d
a $50 grinder vs $250+ grinder .. ๐Ÿ˜›
trnpstcc2d
crazy amount of reviews for that javapresse.. almost 10k reviews
mpkggjvztqibl2d
So every time that didn't happen is a pipe bomb they decided to ignore?
vcezwyvwud2d
Bag check is like 50/50
mykxwhibgv2d
Chemical swipe is more rare
hpmyvefvasfz1d
once I left a bunch of magnets in my coat pocket and sent it through the x-ray. it must have looked really weird on their display as they were really freaking out ๐Ÿ˜‚
vynatwtjd1d
I usually put questionable items in the backpack side pocket, so if they have any questions it's easy to show and take out, usually they just lose any interest once they find out you are not trying to hide it deep in your bag
lxbbfbkgtcmghojl1d
My microphone always gives me problems so I proactively take it out of my luggage when going through security
nmdhrdvfe1d
"hi, this is my shotgunโ€ฆ microphone"
hblnxpiqnizrcfpw1d
I have a tech bag, it's a roller. It has a lot of stuff in it. It has cables, universal adapters, a nintendo switch, external hard drives, etc... I have got it to the point where I pack it in such a way that if everything is pulled out of it I can reassemble it in about 2-3 minutes. American and Canadian security never seem to care but other countries will make me pull literally everything out of it. I can't be the only one who has had to deal with this, curious how others deal with this issue.
fsxljonic1d
I usually just get asked to take electronics out of the bag, now electronics can mean a lot of things so it ends up being checked again for some absurd thingie they thought they seen; I had to get everything out only twice in Narita and in Leeds-Bradford airport
sjzwjpqsgtztuofy1d
Now that I am home I am doing some tech simplification. Like I am getting rid of all my universal adapters and switch to two bagels and trying to remove duplicate cables I don't need because right now I have a zip loc bag I just cram stuff into so I imagine it looks like a bomb going through x-ray.
ilztvreca1d
Most of the time taking out macbook, ipad and camera cube (I have the PeakDesign backpack) is enough
mvtbccau1d
The only time they seem to care about my electronics is if I make the mistake of packing them all together on top of each other.. just makes it look more suspicious on the x ray
wjzlkgtv1d
If you pull out that roll and unroll before putting it through the machine then they probably wouldnโ€™t ask to look at it
fllrgvev1d
Richer countries might have better machines possibly that can do side views and visualize things better
vdeqhzmhrzzvg23h
I get chemical swiped a solid 40% of the time. Can't figure out why
anxheahlw22h
lenovo trackpoint keyboard II just arrived. First impression is that I really like everything except the palm rest which sticks up too high and bothers my thumbs. Will see if I get used to it
jehmqtyz19h
uhh, that person thinks pointer sounds more formal than mouse? i disagree
bjehsqbl19h
i'd flip it around
alqpcutd19h
trackpoint style mouse .. nub.. nipple pointer.. the last one can also be improved with an alliterative "clicker"
iubflsdisqwyu19h
click and clack the tappet brothers!
xwefxephbocsy19h
Mouse definitely is more formal - the resemblance to a mouse was noted in the original description of the english/engelbart device.
kxamecjropmcf19h
This is however, _not_ a mouse, and bears no resemblance to a rodent
