The old.reddit.com subdoman breaks notifications, mod counters, and backup/restore of settings. As a work around, you can still use www.reddit.com and get the old site by unckecking this option in your preferences: Use the redesign as my default experience. This should continue to work as long as the admins leave that option.

[Note: This doesn't apply to the TB 4.x series, which is designed to work with the redesign.]


As always, old.toolbox still loves you.

You’re buying a bootleg Costco item on amazon from a third party seller. What do you expect?

They aren't bootleg by definition of the word. They are simply a product produced/provided by a specific vendor and resold by another. Reselling a good you purchased legally isn't illegal.

No YT 4k 4k HDR though. The shield hardware doesn't support the codec that YT use

I watch tons of 4K YT content on my Shield. What are you on about? And which codec? You can't be referring to AV1.

He actually means HDR and only in the YouTube app. 4K works just fine.

Ah, that makes a bit more sense. I have a 4K TV but it's not HDR.

Seinfeld took it all. Seriously. No backend for any of the cast besides Jerry.

Seinfeld's 'backend' is based on much more than being a 'cast member'. Larry David is swimming in Seinfeld money also, and was never a cast member.

I'm not making a judgement on who should get what cut of whatever, but you can't compare apples to oranges.

Unless you are in FL, then the yearly lightning strike that wrecks your modem (even a UPS can't prevent that if it comes in on the coax) and everything attached to it won't be worth it.

($120 a year for modem with free replacement or $120+ a year potential with no replacement)

...wrecks your modem and everything attached to it...

Wat? What you're claiming make no sense on several levels. If said strike actually kills everything attached to the modern, renting it isn't even a good solution to this problem.

Invest in a UPS for $75 and save yourself what seems to thousands of dollars of equipment a year. Unless, of course, you're just saying stupid shit intentionally.

How many people buy a ups honestly... Fuck outta here

They meant it as a joke, dude. He's a loon that makes money off of human suffering then literally swears in court that it's all an act.

AFAIK no hardware based media players support AV1 so I don’t see it getting traction for a long time.

see more

Why would anyone create hardware around a standard that didn't have a finalized spec until a week ago?

According to AV1 (aomedia), it will be 2 years before we start seeing hardware support

We started seeing h.265 hardware in 2014 and x265 is just now being talked about as a replacement for h.264. If AV1 follows h.265's timeline it will be a replacement in 2024

see more

I agree. AV1 was finalized a week ago... it's clearly not current gen.

That said, with Nvidia, ARM and Intel as part of the committee, I suspect your time table might be a bit longer than expected. Late 2021/early 2022 seems more likely to me, but who knows?

Never gave two shits about the community hes a moderator of

Sorry though your name was at the top of the mod list I thought that implied it was your subreddit and you were the first mod. Who made the decision to completely change the subreddit then? Also why would you want to be mod of like 60 subreddits like you are, whats the point if you dont give two shits about these communities?

The dude who created got sick of people using it to spam, so he added me as a mod and deleted his account. That made me the defacto "top mod".

It was a pretty shitty place, so I had fun with it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

"Peak Tv" is still a thing but unfortunately trash reality tv shows like big brother, kardashians, the bachelor, survivor, the great race and other reality tv shit still get made.

Some of these crap shows have been going for more than a decade.

see more

Meh, that's OK, though. I don't like any of the ones you listed, but for all the award-winning dramas that we watch, when we head to bed we put on Chopped or some Gordon Ramsay show.

If people like putting on dumb shit in the background, it's not hurting anyone. It's not like those shows are preventing quality TV from being made.

It absolutely is. I dislike anime and basically never watch it. The first fucking person is L. Was Kaneda busy washing his bike? (Literally the only joke I can make because I forget the name of the main dude in Cowboy Bebop.)

Ain't nothin wrong with liking Death Note (or any of the above anime). Its popular, but that's because it's a damn good fucking show

see more

I don't think I said anything bad about any of them, but I guess that's how my comment was taken? I was just joking that if I can recognize an anime character, it's pretty mainstream (normie).

Who still uses Hulu with commercials? Your time is worth more than $4/mo... I assure you.

No one is going to read this, buddy.

The online portal has nothing to do with it. FSD is exactly what was being argued and the SCOTUS voted to apply FSD to the situation.

I'm not sure you read my comment. I called the reference to an "online portal" a context clue to the fact that the case was clearly much more recent than the establishment of FSD.

Still not sure what you're trying to get at. We know that the case was after the establishment of FSD because that's what was being argued, and nobody claimed the case was before it.

What does the comment I responded to say?

I lost mine about a week ago. Same problem as everyone else. Seems like a conspiracy to me. No one was supporting it anymore, so why send out an update that bricks it. Its silly, we weren't really using it much anymore but it still upsets me for some reason. We have Rokus and fire sticks and a shield. I wouldn't care about the firesticks or rokus, but for some reason the nexus player dying pisses me off. LoL

Yay I love commercials

People like options. I hate commercials and will never use this, but it's nice that there is a free streaming service offering TV shows and movies for those that don't mind ads.

Exactly the same here. I hate Disney as a company, I'd rather never see these films than ever get a streaming service from them.

Why would you ever watch anything that is a product of a company you "hate", regardless of how you consume it?

It sounds more like you very passively dislike Disney.

7 points · 8 days ago · edited 8 days ago

Huh, that's... interesting. It's odd that they bought an entire company, and have yet to offer their streaming service in the US, given that they seem to have the infrastructure to provide one.

I wonder if that UK service isn't like a really massive beta test.

Also, at least based on some shared personal experiences between myself and people I know as well as bits I've picked up in the media or online, I get the impression that drug charges are often dropped in plea deals in exchange for a non-drug related conviction.

Sweet. Glad we cleared that up!

  1. I immediately admitted my evidence was anecdotal.

  2. I used extremely clear, English phrases like "I get the impression".

  3. You point out exactly what I intentionally presented to you.

  4. ??? I guess I should be ashamed now, or repent, or something?

Nice burn man, careful patting yourself on the back.

The funny part is, I worded that comment exactly as I did to make it crystal clear that I was not trying to present this viewpoint as fact so I could avoid moronic replies like this. But I guess you can't always completely avoid the stupid.

Dude, that's a really long way to say "I agree that what I claimed doesn't actually happen."

Are you under the impression that excess words makes stupid shit sound more valid?

Does this only cover the versions they've been playing all this time?

Because, Disney owns the original, theatrical release film now which would make a great 4K Bluray. Just sayin ;)

They may not own anything. The line LucasFilm's has been holding since the 90s is the original theatrical prints were damaged beyond repair in creating the Special Editions.

Disney has yet to say that claim is untrue.
