Me too. I was definitely part of the PC master race when I was younger and would laugh at all the apple fainbois!

Then I was forced to use one at some job I had and started getting use to it. Then I wanted a laptop and at the time all the PC options were ugly, fat and had horrible battery life compared to the mac so ended up with a macbook pro... never looked back. I still have a custom built PC I made strictly for gaming, but everything else I do on my 2016 macbook pro, which apart from having to get the battery replaced because it looked like it was about to burst, it still runs like a champ. Even my previous MBP is still running just fine if you plug it in, because battery on that one is toast. Might upgrade when the M1 macbook pros come out.

I don't have to do anything to them, that's why I like them. For work I just want to turn that shit on and have it be ready to go. I want to do my work and be done. Every time I turn on my gaming PC after not having used it for a while it probably takes 30 min of updating before I can get started. When I first built it it would boot up almost instantly, it has gotten slower over time where it now takes forever to boot. I'm sure theres a fix, but that's the thing, my old MBP still boots just as quickly and runs just as well as when it was new. I don't want to be a part time IT guy on top of the work I already have to do.

I don't mind doing it for fun when I feel like it with my gaming machine, but not for everyday critical work stuff.

I don't need to do anything to it. It works fine the way it is. Just as fast as when I first got it in 2014. Only complaint is the tiny speakers.

Back to COVID-19 vaccines, my daughter has 1 more day to hit that magic number 30 with her J&J shot. No problems at all for her.

Unfortunately not so. The CDC is tracking "breakthrough" COVID cases among vaccinated people. There have been hospitalizations and deaths. I'd be very interested to hear more about the cases, for example if the people had other health issues and so on.

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-1...ugh-cases.html

The idea of just getting one dose of the 2-dose regimen was discussed early on, it was because there was a relative shortage of doses and states were setting aside doses for 2nd shots. Now that there is plenty to be had, I have a hard time seeing a good reason not to get the 2nd stab. That's how the MRNA vaccines were designed to be used.

I did more RAM & a bigger SSD on my IBM laptop.
My desktop is an I9 now, so very fast. I like fast.

That page seems to be talking about fully vaccinated people still being infected, doesn't really talk about the difference between people with 1 shot vs 2. There comes a point where if your number is up the universe is taking you out one way or another. I mean 100 some people still got taken out even after being fully vaccinated according to that page. It's risky being alive.

Everything I have read says one dose is pretty effective, obviously 2 is better and that's why any health officials will always recommend 2. Anyone in any official capacity will alway eer on the side of caution. There needs to be more research done on how long 1 dose lasts, how it compares to 2 over longer time spans etc.

My legs still hurt... we'll see now that I'm home and not in the car all day if it gets better. I may still get the 2nd dose I have not totally decided yet. However I'm also not afraid of just having 1. I mean shit I've spent a year with no vaccine and honestly for the past 6 months or so I've done pretty much everything I do normally. Only difference in my life is I wear my mask where required and I probably wash my hands more than normal.
