The New Zotac Mini-PC Absolutely Destroys the Old Dell Optiplex with a Very Good WD 1TB Hard Drive

Originally posted 2017-02-21 22:37:31.

I know I posted some disk drive speed tests when I first got the Zotac CI323 Mini-PC with a nifty Silicon Power 240GB SSD.

The bottom line here… the Dell and the Western Digital drive are absolutely no match in a straight up  drive test. The numbers are not even close! Obviously we are comparing a much old Dell to a PC that is much faster, but still…

Well I won’t say anything more… here are the Disk scores…incidentally, the Zotac, scored just about the same as the first time I tested it.

Here are the first tests on the Zotac SSD….

 

 

 

 

 

 

The results above are almost uncanny, truly coincidental and I have no clue why they are identical, although I am not complaining.

That covers testing for tonight,

Tim

This post is probably necessary everywhere, but in Western Kentucky it should be a MUST READ!

This is the turn signal stick!
This is the turn signal stick!

So you have been driving a car for several years and you always have wondered why the head lights were activated by a switch on a stalk rather than a normal switch on the dash.

Well morons….there is a reason. You see you can push that stalk (lever/stick) up or down and magically your DAMNED turn signal lights will blink, thereby warning the folks behind you that you intend to turn or change lanes! For the clueless twits amongst you, it is a law that you must indicate your intentions to adjust lane position or turn, well before you actually get to the point where you will perform such an action. Hence the name turn “signals”! Slamming on your brakes to make a turn and THEN turning on your signal is not only unacceptable/stupid and rude, it is illegal!

So now a simple explanation, especially written for the drivers in Western Kentucky…that little lever on the left side of 95% of all cars on the road needs you to move it either up, or down! Up for right, down for left. I know, this is an amazing revelation to you crackerheads, but that is how simple it is!

One more bit of advice, you need to do this every single time you’re turning left or right, whether it is from a driveway, into a driveway or just changing lanes. It really isn’t that hard to remember and if you have fingers on your left hand there simply is no excuse!

You may now return to your normal web surfing….

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: New Years Recipe For Tech, Sort Of

Originally posted 2018-12-31 22:23:13.

Tonight’s video title might have been a bit misleading, but of course that was the point! Not that the content wasn’t worthwhile, in fact I think it was worth doing the video!

But all too often we run into “hands on” video unboxings, that are really not worthwhile because the twit who made them uses lots of stock video from the mfg and provides zero extra info, nor is there a voice. These I give a thumbs down to, but of course I see the number of views and am always astounded that they get that sort of traffic.

So I am just seeing whether adding the word recipe into the title and also putting in tags referring to the recipe in the video generate ridiculous numbers of views.
By the way, the recipe is legit, cheap and what helps keep my budget low as I wait for folks to subscribe and share and participate!

I shot this using my handy gooseneck mount. Quite the handy tool!

Of course many folks will get upset with the video because they will feel mislead! That is what led me to make the video in the first place!

So let us get right to that video…
