@ashfurrow all engineers (even software engineers) deserve a little shame, as a treat
“Blue Tooth” what a concept!!
Folks, wonderful news on my USB3/Bluetooth interference problem. Turns out, switching which USB-C port on the computer that the hard drive cable is plugged into has fixed the problem 🎉
I maintain that this is poorly thought-out design and that the engineers who are responsible (all of them) deserve at least a little shame.
brb covering my drive in freaking aluminium foil because, as my father the mechanic has always said: engineers have no sense of real world uses of the things they design
freaking, ugh. the router only knows how to expose the first drive partition to the network 😥
so I don't mean to alarm anyone, but you can buy an iPod mini off eBay for pretty cheap, and its hard drive is easily replaceable with a Compact Flash card, and so anyway the iPod should arrive sometime next week 😊😅
swear to god I'll attach this hard drive to my router and access it over wifi before I attach a goddamn *cable* to my mouse smdh
I am now accepting compliments on my cable management skills
mmmm my desk never looked so tidy
