    I didn't want to ruin it for anybody else, but this is what I see when I see the 400i

    Yep, that's what I'm expecting. The recent COVID surge has declined a bit, but, we are still heading into the Fall with a higher number of infections and a higher number of hospitalizations than we did at this time last year, before the big Fall/Winter spike. With the tens of millions still...

    New PC testing and stress testing should I be concerned?

    I had a similar situation, got a new PC built by a "big" name, took 2 months for all the parts to get in, and their "stress-testing" didn't take more than 12-24 hours. After waiting for 2 months, I was glad it didn't take any longer! I think that the "stress-testing" refers more to testing that...

    I really don't have time to explain every idea or thought in a post, but since you seemed to miss the gist, maybe I ran by the idea too fast. Below is a picture of an RV at the beach this morning...I circled in yellow what I would call the "old-fashioned misinformation" that has been going on...

    The problem is that, nowadays, "misinformation" is being weaponized by bad actors, with their own agenda, to further their own gains. It would be one thing if it was the "old-fashioned" misinformation taht we have always faced all through history, but now everything has changed with the...

    China has a fairly modern pharmaceutical industry (guess who helped pay for it? ha ha) They developed their own vaccine, it is just the "old tech" version (i think it is just bits of the virus, but dead) that they inject...the efficacy is no where near as good as the mRNA vaccines, which is why...

    I don't see a problem. After all, they are dying for what they believed in. It's good to see some integrity...and as my 10th grade history teacher used to say' "The world NEEDS bad examples." The REAL PROBLEM is who ^ these free-dumb "fighters" spread it to & infected, who trusted their fellow...

    The issue is that there were enough beds *before* the crisis (and it is a CRISIS) to treat this person; now with COVID all the beds were full. If you read the story, you would have seen that it is normal for them to transfer the patient to another facility, and that in this case, previously it...

    Another one of those sad stories we are going to see more of, esp. in certain areas...a 73 year old with heart problems had to be airlifted to another state, because the 43 other hospitals they tried to transfer him to didn't have an available cardiac bed. Needless to say, the delay probably was...

    That's actually a huge problem...just telling people it is "the right thing to do" & that it is free, and/or telling them to go to Walgreens/CVS whatever (stores I *never* go to) isn't going to work. They need to do outreach/marketing/whatever. If this was a private firm and they could make...
