Woohoo! Just upgraded my main ThinkPad T450 from 16GB to 24GB. Another 16GB module arriving next week to take it to 32GB. The specs say it can only take 16GB (2x8GB), but there are reports online 32GB (2x16GB) works. So far so good! 🍾 Time to open a few more Chrome tabs! 🀣

@ernmander Telling me a site is down using a site which is down isn't super useful :)

Just introduced the kids to Mars Attacks - the 1996 star-studded sci-fi comedy from the mind of Tim Burton. I think they liked it, kind of. "It was really weird" - Sophie.

Surprised to see the Smach Z making its way out to youtubers - at least in prototype form. A chunky portable Steam machine (PC) powered by an AMD Ryzen embedded CPU. Many thought this kickstarter would never see the light of day, with a chequered history.

@kev @Wimpy I get way more annoyed when people police other people's speech. Given the same people who police pronunciation will often "mis-pronounce" other brands quite happily. E.g. Nike and Nokia are prime examples

@juliank Yeah, I have been tempted by those keyboards before. But missing the 3rd button kills it.

One reason I prefer the ThinkPad TrackPoint over a trackpad is scrolling. Turns out not everyone knows you can hold the middle mouse button and use TrackPoint to smoothly & precisely scroll in 4 directions. Keeps hands on the keys too. ❀️ πŸ’»

Ugh. I just said "outcomes and learnings" out loud. Now I feel dirty. I'm so, so sorry.
