Re: Optimal PC experience

I am rather noobie in this field, so it's more about "use X as disc cloner". Do you have any recommendation? How to make your method valid if my "win installation with drivers" is estimated to be 20 GB (on 200GB HDD) and then I want to it be copied to some other disc (like one ISO file or anything l...

Optimal PC experience

There is theory, that PCs are faster and faster, but the bloated software makes them slower anyway :lol: One more time, I experienced that fact. 0. I use Win7 (due to some properitary software). 1. What's yours minimalist software package? I think I suitable with Win7+drivers (hey, the newer version...

YT alternative/best win screen recorder/recruitment "hacks"

I heard there is tactic where you create videos of yourself or skills you own "during"/before recruitment process (especially when you don't have so much "real world" experience). As an engineer, I find it fairly amusing. I want to use it/give try. Especially, if I want to apply abroad (Stahlmanns s...

Re: Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss *dives behind cover*

I will give me opinion on him based on "4-HW". I think he hasn't changed since. He gave me this perspective of "being smart", but from my personal point of view he sometimes crossed line of being moral/ethical/sensible/opportunistic (you need to feel it, I can't explain it).

Satiety and energy crashes on different diet models in specific case

Well... Most people there should or want to follow high-carb diet (due to price of staples and ability to not own big freezer, etc. and system stuff). At the moment, I am rather proponent of MC HF LP. I try to emulate LCHF, but carbs are very tempting. Below I use percentage as energy intake After m...

Re: Small business ownership

Hmm.

I will join this topic. Once I heard about businesses (which probably are in area of "small businesses") where "the manager" is not in charge for antything, he can delegate everything to other people. In what direction should I go if I want to know more about it?

If you travel "millennial"-style (I hope you didn't paid for package holiday :D ), take a hustle in the ...

Re: Want to fight climate change? Have fewer children

Somebody needs to keep the system working that's, like, Stahlmann's opinion, man I think that (for example) self-breeding for read meat would be time consuming, so it's better that some people stay in workforce and provide cheap products due to industralization. With the lentils is the same :lol: !...

Stop having white babies so we can justify brown people replacing you on your own homeland.

There was the topic about where the money resides/is altogether. How about the way you secure "it".

@Stahlmann I read "Difficult Conversations" recently. I recommend it. If you have to interact with people, but find emotional drama cumbersome, this book teaches you a good approach to handle that. I kind of make a game of it. Like, can I use these tools to chill someone out who has it in for me. ....
