In Windows 10 you can check the boot up time by going to the task manager (ctrl + shift + esc), select the Startup tab, and you have it in the top right corner. For me it's 17.2 seconds.

It's probably there in Windows 11 as well. It seems like they've kept most of the old systems.

Mine's very wrong, I know my last one was a little longer than normal because of a Windows update but it says the last startup time was 2.5 hours. :lol

Says last Bios time was 8.1 seconds.

I have a feeling the 1-2 min delay at start up is something with the bios pre-Windows boot? No idea what that could be.

Just ran a stopwatch test.

From cold boot, I hit power and my monitor is a completely black screen for 30 full seconds.
Then windows splash screen pops up, and then takes 10-15 seconds from there.

This seems variable because I know a lot of times it takes longer, but yeah there's a full 30 seconds even here at the start. Feels like I should look into my bios menu and see wtf it is doing. If it's trying to wake up all the HDDs or something that would cause a delay.

My Galaxy S10 is sort of dying.
After looking at the models the flagships (S22/S22 Ultra) didn't seem that interesting for the premium price so I saved some money and opted for the S21 FE instead.

Doctor: "Ok Nintex, I believe we figured out what the infection is (*some latin las plagas name*) and we need to try some other anti-biotics and up the dosage to hopefully get better and more lasting results but there's a catch..."

Nintex: "Ok, what's the catch"

Doctor: "I'm sorry but to prevent side effects I'm afraid you'll mostly have to evade the sun and other UV light sources as much as possible for the coming 8 weeks. You can still go outside but no sunbathing and it's better to stay in the shadows.
If you can't manage we could postpone the treatment until after the summer but I would advice we move quickly"

Nintex: "So I basically have to stay indoors for the coming 8 weeks as much as possible on doctors orders?"

Doctor: "That's my advice yes. We realize this is very hard on our patients so we've compiled a list of indoor activities that I can share with you if you want"

Nintex: "Does your list include Xbox GamePass and the SteamDeck?" :trumps

I built a stupid cat shitting house and it literally was harder to assemble and worse on my back than my sim-driving rig. I hate assembling furniture so much. Just wish stuff came pre-assembled damnit.

I now have litterboxes and a water fountain and cat food dining area. I haven't had a pet in like 7-8 years, but my last few gfs have all had cats so I just hung out with them and it was all good. But gonna get a kitten or two soon. Just wanted to get all set up first so I was ready to go once I found them.

In the meantime, you built yourself an emergency toilet.

I was on a bus when some rough looking twat got on and started blasting shitty music out of his phone while staring people out. After a couple of minutes of this an older, rougher looking dude went over to him, picked up his phone and smashed it. Then he just stood there staring the twat out before going back to his seat. Never said a word. It was awesome

Got a new laptop today for a 2nd work station. Windows 11 on it. I guess I've never upgraded from Windows 10 on my desktop?

Because the interface has a lot of stupid shit that hides the ball. Especially when you right click and half the options are missing. Really dislike the trend of just getting rid of useful things for simplicity.

totally agree, makes me tear my hair out

or things like introducing more useless white space around everything, or making things take an extra click (not necessarily win 11 but in general)

today google finally forced me off the old hangouts app on my phone and into the shitty new one, I hate the extra click separating "chat" from "spaces" (groups)


do you know if they're moving forward with the garbage new iteration of windows utility apps, like, are they removing the old ones that actually worked?

my go-to example is the virgin printers & scanners vs. the chad devices and printers





there is enough material here to make an actual virgin vs. chad meme

"can only feebly choose open queue, manage, or remove device" vs. "has a full complement right click menu with everything you need"

"meekly asks can I add a printer or scanner which takes 10 useless seconds to try and fail to scan automatically" vs. "decisively adds a device with every option at your fingertips"

Got a Mechnical Keyboard for this setup.

Mostly got one out of curiousity because they are all the hype these days. Had to surf through a whole ton to just to find a non GAMERZ RGB FLASHING COLORS one. After using it for a day, I don't understand why this is popular?

It feels like I'm typing on a 1950s typewriter. Like I hate laptop keys that are super thin with no good physical feedback, but coming from like pack-in $20 keyboards and like $40-50 logitech wifi dongle keyboards my whole life (including on my main desktop), I do not get why this $160+ mechanical keyboard is so much better. Yeah the keys are raised up so it looks fancy and you press deeper, but idk, doesn't feel much different than my 1/2 depth normal keyboard on my desktop?

Also now I have two setups with 2 keyboards where a few buttons are in different places which is gonna fuck me up. Mostly Delete. My desktop one is sorta tenkey compact size but it has the full numbers on the right? Seems like they don't make keyboards this size anymore. So I got a full CLICKY one for my mechanical.

Like this is what I've been using for like 6-8 years on my main desktop?

$20
https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-K360-Wireless-Desktop-Keyboard/dp/B007PJ4PN2

And this is what I just got for my new setup:
$170
https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Mechanical-Illuminated-Performance-Bluetooth/dp/B09LJWWX4Y/


I don't need programmable keys or LEDs or anything. Just wanted a bluetooth keyboard that feels good to type with. It's solid and I don't dislike it. I just don't feel it's any better than my $20 keyboard after a day.

Ok, moved it to my main desktop to mess around with it some more and get used to the layout and it's growing on me. The backlit thing at night in a dark room is kinda neat. The way all the keys just light up when you brush against them. Also some useful shortcut buttons and being able to be bluetooth sync'd to three devices at once and switch using buttons is helpful for moving between my two stations without having to re-sync the bluetooth.
