OSB....OSB everywhere. It's a rarity to see actual plywood in construction these days.

The listing agent who first showed our new house touted the "triple I beam" flooring supports. So, naturally when I checked the crawl space, I was surprised to not see steel I beams. He was bragging on a 3 piece engineered product which the main piece is, you guessed it, OSB. Pic:

Now that's definitely stronger than a 6" joist, but "triple I beam"?? Fucken salesmen.

>Doing fine. Highest winds around 40mph. No storm surge in the river. It's been kinda dry, less than an inch of rain over the last 24hrs. 

Glad to hear. You looked pretty good on radar.

In Raleigh?

Assimilation is obv not complete.

So the general laborer is still in it for a bit, at least for picking orders. It seems AI would have solved this one more quickly.

Marketing / Re: Nike bets on its demographic
« on: September 11, 2018, 09:24:28 PM »
The irony is lost on people supporting this cause by buying more nikes with their ethical mfg history, but man if this wasn't well thought out. There's really no way they could lose going this route, killer marketing campaign reach for the cost.

"effectively the organization has arbitraged or traded older conservatives from red states whose, by the way, disposable income is declining, and traded them in for younger, affluent urban consumers"

I'd say group 2 were your primary Nike buyers to start with, this just shores things up.

>but not doing it is a wasted opportunity for someone like New Balance.
None will have the balls. Not even close.

Web Development / Re: Google AMP Can Go to Hell

AMP never made sense to me. Your pages, on Google servers, with no ads or tracking.

I cannot understand anyone who signed on for this.

I tried to uninstall on my S8+ a few months ago. Never used it or signed in, it just keeps downloading updates so I wanted to nuke it.

Can't. Locked into the OS. (wtf?) Disable only, can't remove it.

As an aside, the "delete fb" movement is kind of half assed isn't it? Just deleting an app means little vs canceling your account.

Spotify unearthed another gem.

Though I don't usually like countryrap, the chorus on this is my jam.

>Turn on Widows Defender if it didn't come on as default. It's very good.

I cannot stand something that just runs when it wants to. Any time I am in dire need of CPU cycles, right now, and it ain't happening, that #(%^&(*#&$ing thing is hogging everything and there is no stopping it.

I get along with win10 as long as I remember to turn that and auto updates off, plus ofc cortana.

For a nice, new and inexpensive linux book, check out a chromebook pro which has intel cpu so you can load linux. I just recently bought the plus which is basically the same except for cpu and love it for general usage though the keyboard is a bit cramped.
