Does anybody know who this sexy creature is? At first i thought it novel to watch the progress of a spider egg sac on my bathroom window, but now there are two of them and i don't particularly like the idea of being overrun by 500 tiny spiders. I was bitten 3 times by a false widow over the summer.

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

I spilled water on the corner of my laptop keyboard and now it won't turn on. I'm hoping it's just a fucked battery, or something to do with the power, and that the motherboard is still alive. There was no smell, no other symptoms. It crashed and I switched it off, unplugged it, then set it upside-down overnight. I couldn't get the battery out as that requires unscrewing and I had no tools on me.

It's still dead, but it's been so cold that it wouldn't surprise me if there's still some moisture knocking around inside.

I'm going to buy a screwdriver set and have a poke around, but I'm not really sure what to look for -- how can I tell what part broke?

Am I better off taking it to a repair shop? Perhaps they test the components individually?

Model is a Lenovo Ideapad 320, if that matters.

It's almost certainly a motherboard fault. If you don't even own a screwdriver set, you have basically no chance of finding and fixing a blown component on a modern motherboard - they're absolutely teeny-tiny and require specialist tools and techniques to (de)solder. If you're lucky, there isn't any lasting damage, just a bit of lingering moisture or mineral residue that's preventing the machine from booting, so give it another day or two to dry off. If you're going to take the machine apart anyway, (carefully) remove the motherboard and thoroughly wash it in high-purity isopropyl alcohol.

Finished Disco Elysium recently. I started playing it during a period of heavy drinking and initially enjoyed the character's mental state reflecting my own, but I started feeling shitty about everyone in the game calling me a degenerate alcoholic and decided to have my character tidy himself up a bit and take the case more seriously, which coincided with me taking a break from the Al-Gul in real life.

It's simultaneously one of the funniest and most poignant games I've ever played.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

I think I've slipped through the cracks of the Universal credit system. Still got the income but I've not had to go in for a meeting in months and no sanctions. Surprising incompetence really. During the time it's been going on I've landed a full time job in a new city, starting in the new year, not sure if I should contact them and tell them about it now or wait until I start. JC+ did nothing to help me look anyway they just kept tabs on me while I did. Are there any pitfalls of telling them? I mean, I broke the contract by not posting 15 job applications on their journal every week, but I landed a job anyway, so surely that evens us out...

I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

I should add that in my experience, I've swapped out graphics cards, CPU and motherboard, and Windows 10 either didn't notice, or immediately adapted to the new hardware behind the scenes. I've also put my SSD from one Thinkpad into a different model and that worked fine too. I wouldn't worry.

> How much of my PC can I upgrade before Windows 10 shits itself?

I'll eventually find this out myself as I migrate various VMs around work/customer/enterprise boxes but I do have a shit ton of experience of Office 2013's "Windows Genuine Advantage" which basically threw its toys out of the pram if your CPU changed.

If Win10 is anything like WGA you can change your hdd/ssd, your ram, and any peripherals like video cards / gpus and the like - but the moment you change out the CPU it'll throw a wobbly.

Essentially it all comes down to what data MSFT uses to create their "globally unique identified" (my money's on CPU model and serial number and probably BIOS/UEFI serial number if it's available).

New phone arrived this morning, a year after ordering (yay, indiegogo). It's a lovely jewel of a thing, and the keyboard feels excellent.
Bastard thing's got a cracked outside screen cover, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to send it back, to a company that's in the throes of shipping and unlikely to be very responsive, but I've contacted them.
Arse. I was really looking forward to this.
It doesn't look user-replaceable, and as it's a 'perk' not a purchase, I don't know where I stand.

>>27303 I dunno I think PDAs have had their day.

That's probably why you didn't buy one, and I did.
I've had Nokia Communicators, teeny tiny laptops, the Gemini and now this. It's hardly a PDA, it's a computer with a small but tolerable keyboard. I really don't like touchscreens for text entry, and this is something I can easily pocket, and which has a decent battery life so it'll probably work when I want to use it.
As for 'why' - it's a fine email machine, and fine for hammering out words for code or documents. I still tend to go back to a real machine for editing, but for getting the first cut of things, if I can't be arsed to fire up a laptop or find somewhere to perch it, it works nicely. I played with various OSes on the Gemini, but lacklustre support for the Mediatek means I ended up back on Android. I'll try again on the Cosmo.

That is basically what I meant, joking aside. I only have personal projects to faff about with but have still often wanted a 'proper' keyboard for this sort of thing. Even just for emailing in the field in my real job, though personally I prefer a good software keyboard over an "okay" mini keyboard. A thumb board is preferable to both, something in the XDA format would be genuinely useful for my work, but a the clamshell of this or the Gemini or the GPD Pocket are just not ideal for the outdoor-ish work I find myself doing, and modern smartphones are still pretty excellent at typing while standing up, walking etc, but lack the ability to run weird old proprietary software I use, and they don't play well with our VLAN either.

There's a dead wasp in every fig. It's how they're pollinated.


Many vegans see honey production as no different from any other animal farming, in that it involves exploitation of an animal and often ends up in significant bee deaths, as it's easier to cull a hive than treat it if there is an illness spreading. Presumably if you buy honey from someone with only a couple of hives instead of thousands, you could more or less guarantee a happy bee life, though I bet that's an expensive way to buy honey. I think even if I ever went vegan I'd find it hard to give up honey, it's just so good.

It's a specific type of wasp, unsurprisingly known as the fig wasp, and I don't think they're really anything like the yellow bastards we are at war with.

Aaawww I googled it, and I feel bad for it. We should call it something different - like "flying fig ants," or something.

I honestly can't stand it any more.

The internet is breaking my faith in the human species and I need a break from it. Doesn't matter where you go. Chan boards? Infested with alt-right mouthbreathers. Reddit? The opposite brand of people with mind-worms so powerful they think the holodomor was a good thing. Video game sites? Corporate shills and pay-pig knuckle draggers. Obscure nerd hobby forum? Autism so powerful you can't even risk making a joke. Twitter? Let's not even go there, honestly.

Talking to randoms online has always felt like a beneficial exposure to differing ideas and opinions, but nowadays I'm starting to feel like participating in anything resembling the typical modern social media culture simply isn't good for me. Maybe I'm getting old, maybe everyone is just a dickhead, maybe I'm just a dickhead; but I used to be one of the people with ideals and some hope to change the world for the better. Ten years on, the kids have decided what I believe in is outdated, and that I'm pretty much the reincarnation of Hitler for every questioning the new orthodoxies of thought.

I'll be the first to admit I don't exactly have a busy social life in the real world. I'm working on changing that, but there are times I'm not feeling up to it, so I rely on the internet as a crutch. It's those times where I feel incredibly isolated without it, but exposing myself to the widespread toxicity of the internet at large any more is almost certainly unhealthy by this point.

What can I do?

I've been going to church as a Catholic most of my life. Myself and some of the other lads have been getting shitfaced after mass every Sunday. I really look forward to Sundays. Religious people really aren't that religious for the record, and it can be an easy place to make a few pals to drink with mate. Given, I am in central London, so I'm not sure how populated things are in your area. Mass in your area might be a bunch of old people singing Jesus songs.

OP here. I doubt that's really an option for me, considering I'm exactly the sort of person a Christian might assume to be a devil worshipper, and if they were to delve into my creative output over the years might find a considerable body of evidence to support such a claim.

Once, when I worked in a shop, a frightened looking woman gave me a leaflet about salvation after I'd finished serving her. I recall finding it incredibly rude.

I find it's very easy for the chans to sweep me along with poor worldviews and 'reality tunnels'. It's times like those when it helps me to remember the sea is still rolling - moment after moment going in and out for eternity (at least as i could percieve it). Life goes on, those people on the beach aren't the people in my mind - for one i didn't even imagine if they're have hair. It's all too easy to think your ideas exist in the real world, when in reality everything is far to complex for us to get even a momentary grasp of (though it seems the strive to hold it is as important as letting go).

It might take a few days, perhaps longer, but i usually find getting some fresh air helps. Sit at a park side with a mug of tea, listening to the world go by. There's more beauty about this existance than we might usually think. Just need some environmental enrichment.

>Chan boards? Infested with alt-right mouthbreathers

As someone that's been on a certain imageboard on-and-off for what'll be ten years in 2020, I know how you feel, m8. I hate these people about as much as those redditors you mentioned. I just saw that this meme (a meme that was part of the reason I really grew sick of the place) is apparently now so ubiquitous that it's trended on knowyourmeme:

Maybe I'm also just getting older, but the lack of any kind of civility online is just tiring to me, now. The internet has rarely ever been civil, but *at least* I knew there was an element of freedom of expression, as older people still didn't quite understand what kids did. Now we're not even gonna have that. All the places I've browsed for years are full and under a corporate thumb that once wasn't there, and if they are there, the place quickly becomes full of childish ideologues and oh-so hilarious memers.

What I will say is that I agree very much with this lad >>29030. I'm very lucky that I have a friend who thinks similarly to me, but he's admittedly also a lot more socially mature, less anxious. He thinks many of the things I think, but he's also just a kind, grounded person. He was once a lot more addicted to chans and the internet, but he hasn't been for years, now. He focuses on the outside world, and he just seems happier for it. Thinking of him keeps me remembering that the world outside, at least as it currently is, doesn't really give a shit about most of us, and that those that concern themselves with the internet too much are the ones ultimately doing themselves harm. They think they're so smart, so learned, so funny, but they're rarely making the difference that they think they are.

I guess to just summarise: The world does keep turning. And unless we hear nuclear sirens going off or you see tanks rolling down your street; then you've got the rest of your life to go out and enjoy it. I'd recommend getting the money together to visit national parks, forests, museums, etc. Don't mind the weather, just give it a go. It'll at least remind you that you're alive.

/nom/13078 Slow Cooker Curry
What am I doing wrong, lads? Every slow cooker curry I make turns out more like a watery broth; there's absolutely no thickness to the sauce and it just doesn't... taste like a curry. It has all the flavours but it doesn't quite mesh right.

My process is:
Fry chicken pieces with onions, carrots, and broccoli until browned off.
Put in slow cooker with box of passata, 4 or 5 heaped tablespoons of madras curry powder, and a whole chilli. Sprinkle Oxo cube in too.
Give it a mix, put the lid on, low for 8 hours or high for 6.

Add chopped coriander, leave for 5 mins with lid off, serve.

Every time, as I say, it's just far, far too watery. The most recent batch I froze individual portions of just have no sauce at all. What do?

Thanks lads.

Most curries aren't made with broccoli, mushrooms, and carrots either.

They could be. Curries are a countable noun but have no minimum mass requirement whereas a curry is a countable noun so you could divide a small amount of one curry into a very large number of curries and outnumber the amount of other curries, making your own curries the majority of what all curries are.
Probably more effort than it's worth.

You need to let shit reduce before you get all that good shit sticking to your chickens/lambs.

At the very least, when you first start, try to let it reduce (leave the top open on medium to high flame, and then use your pressure/slow cooker wizardry.

People in poor places don't even have your tech, but they do it faster and better than you. Find out why.

Please keep me posted. I need this information. I need all information. I think I need to work for the fucking Doughnut. Hire me please. I need to be paid in alcohol though.
