Brian Holdsworth on cancel culture
@SirHendrick Hahahaha sounds about right!
@SirHendrick what a weird message!
I am beyond excited to see that the lead of Secret & Whisper is back behind the microphone.
The hope that he could be talking about backyard nukes is a fool's errand, yes? Well, I'm sticking with it.
@DrChris I've got a friend who's dad is an immigrant to 🇨🇦 from 🇱🇷 and married a white Canadian girl, and they (friend's parents) now live back there. Crazy to hear some of their stories. A few years ago they installed the first well at the village of their ancestors; up until now they had walked a 4 hour round trip to get not-clean water!
@jeremiah Well now I know who to ask for suggestions when the need arises!
@CoffeeFingers the question is inspired by my parents' current IT problems... my first response: "I only shoot on film. Saves the hassle."
@mhjohnson Not sure what the number is, but it's at about 300GB currently. It's my mom's computer and we did the repair tool last time I was there (months ago) which helped, but it has gotten slower again.
@Sir_Fromgar that's what I was thinking
@Sir_Fromgar that 10% amount is interesting.
@chris everyone is saying SSD and now I feel silly for not thinking of that. This is why asking for advice is a good idea.
@geordie ah ha! I forgot about the fusion drive, you're right, that's what it has. Thanks for the tips!
@plushplatypus as in the read/write speeds?
@geordie good point. The question is inspired by my mother, who is currently on a 2013 iMac and has a massive library in iPhoto/Photos. She doesn't have Photoshop or anything like that, but uses the built-in tools.
I wiped the hard drive and did a clean install of macOS last summer but she still complains (regularly) that it's a pain to do anything with the photos.
