For backup I use Create Synchronicity, which hasn't been updated in ten years because it just works.

If anybody is just looking for something simple like a mirror copy maybe check it out.

From what I understand the device has to indicate it can be turned off so it's unlikely that any of those power settings was the real change. You should never have to change any settings to get a non-shingled USB drive to work at normal speed.

With shingled drives like you have (probably your old Seagates are also) it's very easy to believe you fixed a setting when really the drive just decided to relocate and free up a bunch of write space while you were researching settings to change, or something like that. For instance you can copy a file, delete it, and a second copy take 10x longer - or vice verse - entirely due to the drive's internal state. Even for reads, a file may be scattered about a temporary space and very slow to read, then in the background made sequential by writing to the actual shingle tracks.

From what I can tell the main thing for shingled drives is to leave it plugged in for long periods so that drive can do it's background cleanup, and also never fill it up (I'd never get under 10% for any reason) as the more full it is the more cascading writes it'll have to do. Other than that you're at the whim of this opaque and undocumented shingle process. Even defragmenting could end up with a slower drive, depending on how the drive firmware is designed.

If you want to tweak settings, the one I would change is to enable write caching. This will make writes more sequential or even avoid some writes, which doesn't really matter much for CMR but can be a huge boost for shingled. You'll need to "safely remove device" but I would NEVER just yank out a shingled drive anyway as at any time it may be doing something important.

If wondering why, it's because Democrats literally believe it's as bad as airborne ebola. Almost a majority of democrats they think >50% of unvaccinated people will need hospitalization, and about 90% are more than one order of magnitude off from the real risk.

In their mind, they are the rational ones.

And the reason is that they have absolutely no clue that NPR, NYT, WaPo, Atlantic, etc have all been lying to them for the last 5 years.

The phobia works because it sounds good, like scandal-gate, even though it doesn't make sense. Not sure tee-dium has that, especially not tay-dium.

I think for it to catch on it needs to end in 'ia' as in a 'state or condition' just so that it parallels phobia.

So my best alt so far is -versia from averse. It sounds okay and it also is accurate for me... people do all kinds of things I find disgusting and gross. I'm not afraid of them, I don't hate them, but I would never do it myself and don't want to be around people that do and don't want to see it every day in every movie and every newscast. I'm also not simply bored of it, I personally reject it.

When the next scam happens, all these fauxpologists like this Danish newspaper will already be telling them that the new scam is legit.

You'll just be another conspiracy theorist going against the news authority. They'll say "a broken clock is right twice a day" when you remind them you were right on covid.

Forgive individuals who trusted the news and had that trust violated, don't forgive the primary actors that did the offense. That's like going back to your abuser, "but honey I've changed". They never change. Get your news from elsewhere and encourage others to as well.

It depends. Did they actually change anything to prevent it from happening again? Did they fire half their staff and replace them with critical thinkers? Did they add an update to all their stories so anybody following old links gets informed of the newspaper's mistake?

If they didn't correct their bad ways then they're just people who see the tide turning and want to surf that wave instead of getting crushed by it - and these are the worst people to give a pass to, the most influenceable and self-serving, because they'll be the first people pushing the next big scam.

I think this is the same paper where they also mentioned in Israel extra myocarditis is 1 in 20,000... but then they just totally ignore that and say 'but we'll just believe CDC and UK are right and Israel are lying so it's 1 couple per million... yeah... that's the ticket'.

In the show only the surface people have hextech and the sewer people only have machines and steroids.

If they had a one-liner even that the gloves were magic I could get past it, except before that the 100 lbs girl was already beating up the 250 lbs streetfighter... the guy took steroids so she had to get the magic fists. Like okay maybe a skeleton-ninja could beat up some meathead like Schwarzenegger, but not a streetfighter. It was just totally unbelievable.

They weren't playing it straight when the 100 lbs girl beat up the 250 lbs meathead street fighter who was on magic steroids. Using maybe 20 lbs of iron fist she looks like she could barely even lift.

It was so comical I totally checked out. Left the rest on as background noise.

Maybe it was explained the fists had like inertial gyros in there or something and I just missed it.

But to whine about being a target to Rand Paul, the guy who was shot at by a crazy liberal at the baseball game AND physically assaulted by his liberal neighbor AND barely escaped from a mob of liberal rioters in DC.

Even on regular servers I remember the sonic the hedgehog porn and people laughing and having a good time.

And all kinds of offensive sprays. Somebody would do their goat.se spray and it'd get covered over with boobs.

Must be an equivalent around somewhere on discord servers or wherever, but maybe kids are just in such a panopticon society they can't ever experience realness.

Worse than than, people will associate "best before" with things like milk that actually go bad and fast.

Result will be even more waste from people throwing out nuts or grains or things that last way past their 'best' date.

Back in the day a long time ago blacks weren't allowed to be in some kinds of shows, so the actors wore blackface and makeup wasn't very good back then so it looked terrible.

So blackface is associated with discrimination 100 years ago.

Liberals are just living in a past world not the present. They'll still be trying to correct 1950 when it's 2050.

Occasionally SJWs produce good content, but always when the supposedly 'bad' guys are unintentionally the good guys.

Oh no Dr. Evil is for traditional families, hard work, and integrity he's so evil!!!

In this case, I have no doubt Netflix thinks they are mocking Johnny and his out of touch ways, but when I'm watching it I just hear him making good points. I also enjoyed watching the show, especially the first season (pre-Netflix), but pretty much all from waiting for him to call somebody a pussy or idiot.

Something you can never accuse Cruz of being is dumb. The guy is smart as a whip.

Pre-beard the guy's ugly as sin with a punchable face and yet he nearly edged out Trump for the nomination.

So pay attention to what he's doing because it'll tell you something important - what that is idk, but it's not an accident.

Well, it really depends on what the actual purpose is.

I believe this is to catch untaxed rental income. Lots of people rent a room to somebody, get $700/mo paid with venmo or whatever cash app, and don't report it on their income taxes. IRS has no way to know if they are friends you're letting stay with you or if you garnering income.

After this change, I imagine unlabeled purchases will be defaulted to "goods and services" and the IRS will have 12 months of $700 transfers. 'Random' audit of these homeowners, easy $2000 tax recovered plus penalties, get promotion.

Of course homeowners should pay taxes on rental income, but for me furthering a draconian IRS overlord is worse than letting these small fries that rent under the table earn a few extra bucks.

Funniest thing about Dore is he's clearly scraping topics from The Donald.

Just restating patriots.win as far left is like a gold mine for him.

'You guys... whatever... used to have great music"

That's not the only thing they used to have.

Meanwhile redlettermedia loved it because they're afraid of having their star wars reviews demonetized and losing that fat $15/month check.

Frustrating that my 80+ parents think the vaccine is the only thing and refuse to look at anything else.

I'm like even if the vaccine worked and you don't get wuflu at that age you can still have a bad time with any flu or common cold so why not learn from the c19 therapy research... antiviral nose spray, antiviral gargle, zinc, vitamin d, etc.

But they get their news from NPR which never talks about any treatment only vaccine.

Also keep around all your old computers, or get a couple cheap raspberry pi or such as. Computers you can use to store your cryptowallet on or use as a gateway so you can at least see when things are talking.

You're right of course, but it's my belief (from doing classified work) that compartments can be overloaded in most people.

Everything that's compartmentalized takes effort, as every time the topic comes up they think to themselves 'except for the natives'.

Generally you deal with it by avoiding the topic. You don't talk about it with outsiders, but these people talk about it all the time to everybody - it's their whole life.

When somebody talks about institutionalized discrimination and how we have to stop it, agree and mention that the tribal lands should all be assimilated because those poor native Americans aren't protected by our laws and don't have access to services like regular citizens do.

They'll say, uh, we meant the blacks.

But shouldn't we start with the most egregious and widespread institutions of discrimination?

Either they realize that they're full of shit, or they'll help end this original sin.

Obviously a therapy will only work while you have the disease it is treating. Agents that work against the virus will only work while you have the virus.

Ivermectin shows considerable effectiveness even in late treatment, indicating that some virus is still present or it has some other mechanism of action as well (such as anti-inflammation).

This is well better than hydroxychloroquine at all stages.
