Hmm.. I wonder where @calzonesteve went.. Probably out partying somewhere with Hobbs.
Hmm. Curious if my work laptop throttles it's speed based on the health of the battery.
I've had this laptop (Dell Inspiron E6410) for about 6 years now. The past 6 months or so, I've noticed that the battery was crap. Barely held a charge any more. Took about 15 minutes to boot up and get to the point where I could work.
Bought a new battery. Installed it today. Holy crap, it took about 5 minutes to boot today. Everything is noticeably faster. Here I was thinking I needed a new laptop!
So I wanted to refill my drink on the way out of the BK and they have one of those coke machines with the touch screen.
Well there's this lady in front of me, just standing there with her finger hovering over the screen. I'm wondering wtf that she's doing.
Well, know where there's the main menu and it is scrolling past the drinks to show you what is in the different section? She thinks it's a video game I guess because she's waiting for what she wants to go past and trying to hit it quickly.
When I started this shift, I was totally cool with it. Now, I'd rather have my nights free to spend with friends or family.
Not being on call any more is also a big draw.
Never thought that this was an option and I was OK with being on this shift indefinitely. But now that I know there's N end in sight, I'm hella impatient for it to happen. 😁
