2021.10.19 23:56 Dinger-B2Z Are my assumptions about Macs/OS and why it's the best laptop for me wrong?
So I decided to not post this in a mac-subred as I wanted to avoid any strong Apple-bias, on the other hand I might have a bigger chance of getting Apple-hating replies here, but hopefully not.
I'm considering retiring my old macbook, and financially I feel like I should consider cheaper alternatives.
So I've had two pc's in my life, a gaming rig that I had from 08 and lasted 5-6 years, and a macbook pro 13" 2015 base model. I've played around on cheap windows laptops, but they don't really count as a macbook-competitor. So I haven't had much experience owning different computers, and my questions might be a bit... idk, basic, but I appreciate any and all feedback.
OS-wise they both have their strengths and weaknesses, I still feel like Windows was more intuitive to me, but that might just be because I used it first and had played around with it before I got my own pc.
I don't think build quality is a reason to stick with a mac for me. I've seen so many vids and articles over the years showing how a windows pc with the same specs would cost about as much as the mac. I'm not too good with hardware, 16gb ram is 16gb ram to me, I have no knowledge about the quality of ram.
I could propably save a ton of money as I don't feel like I need the best build quality on the market, but maybe I'm just saying that because I've never owned mid-tier build and don't know how sub par it will feel. All I know is I absolutely love how this 6 year old mbp has been holding up. I think a 6-7 year cycle is perfect for me, or more if the computer works well.
Anyway, my main assumption as to why macs are the way for me, is that I want something that just works, and that has good implemented security. I remember with my gaming rig I had the occasional error message, the occasional driver issue etc., maybe it's different than with a windows laptop/ultrabook, but the 6 years I've had this mbp I've had close to zero error messages, never had an issue with servers, or random malware-pop ups from AVG or anything like that, where I had to try to figure out if it actually was malware or not, not had to deal with bloatware etc. This mac has been running like clockwork for coming on 7 years now, and my impressions are that windows laptops, even tho they have improved massively in the last years, won't be as hassle free.

2021.10.19 23:56 ThatAriesBxtch My scope keeps falling out of collimation. What am I doing wrong?
I have a Sky Watcher 150p 6” dobsonian telescope that I have yet to use as it keeps falling out of collimation. I get it set up and the second I take the laser out and the eye piece in, line it up with the moon or whatever, everything is blurry and it’s somehow not collimated. I started with the secondary mirror, and then lined up the primary mirror and all seemed fine until I tried to actually use the telescope. Could someone link me to a step by step guide on what to do? I’m really lost and upset because I’m so excited to use my new telescope but just can’t set it up.

2021.10.19 23:56 its_a_celtics_burner I finally did it, I just don’t enjoy the changes, mmr, wonky console handles with killer, boons not being able to be destroyed. I’ve enjoyed the concepts of the game since it’s Xbox release, but every update pushes me further and further away. Enjoy the fog guys/girls…..

2021.10.19 23:56 questioningthroway11 Will Disneyland prevent you from entering if you try to bring alcohol into the park?
To clarify, will they just not allow you in with the alcohol or with they say “Since you tried to bring in booze you are entirely forbidden from entering the park”?

2021.10.19 23:56 Puzzled-Tale49 A+ core 2 such a bad experience with online testing platform
I was half way through the test for Core 2 and started working on the performance based questions. Everytime I click on drop-down, my Macbook just forze wit the spinning wheel. Used their chat support and since it froze, the keyboard won't type in the chat window. Had to wait min of 5-6 minutes for them to voice chat me. Told me their will close it and ask me to re-open the software. All the performance based questions forze on my computer and they asked to force power off my laptop twice and still happened. I just took Core 1 few days ago but on my PC. Now they are suppose to email me for possibly reschedule after review. The chat asked why did you get up from the camera. I was like you expect me to sit for 2 hours with no fix to finish my exam and wait minimum of 6-8 minutes before you respond to me.

So what i wanted and loved was the Campaign vs mode. What i got was a camp fest. I wanted hazards, ledges, all that good crap. But no. Why didn't you guys do that at launch, this aint a l4d's spiritual successor, please try to add that. It would make the games so much funner. Please do add that.

2021.10.19 23:56 SQ347 Any Insight into University of Hawaii’s MLA
I’m currently working as an environmental planner in Honolulu but want to pursue an MLA next year. I was accepted at University of Arizona and deferred a year, but now that I’m in Hawaii is was wondering if anyone had insight into the program at UH Moana? I saw it’s I’m it’s candidacy status for accreditation, but it’s first grad class only finished this year, so I expect it’ll become accredited soon. It seems like a really interesting and unique place to study LA, but I don’t know how the program would be perceived compared to others
