Of course I see all the posts for purchasing, building and getting software started up. But I'm curious what everybody does to keep their PC maintained.
I continuously feel like I'm lazy with my PC. Dust the outside of the case and filters every now and then, but rarely if ever actually open the case to clean it out. Antibacterial handiwipes by the computer to keep grease and such off my peripherals. Maybe once a year I'll pop the keys off my mechanical keyboard for a thorough cleaning.
Is there anything else important us casuals might not know about? Or any tips and tricks to keep things tidy?
As a new homeowner and total spreadsheet nerd, I'm looking to set up something to track all of the monthly, seasonal, etc. maintenance tasks around the house. Was curious to see if anyone on here had done something similar they would like to share as a template? If not, I'll definitely share what I come up with for others!
Yes, yes I follow the pinned message on this sub. I vacuumed the inside of my furnace and I'm replacing my hot water heater anode in a few days. But, something new always pops up like someone mentioning a water pressure regulator or an expansion tank that I've NEVER heard of before.
There should be an app that helps you with all of this. Does anyone know of one? Or how do you learn about this? It's hard because you don't know what you don't know.

These are just some thoughts that have been tumbling around in my head and don't represent the feelings of the community. Feel free to downvote and move on if (1) it's too much text or (2) you actually disagree. There is a tl;dr for the smoothest of brains at the bottom.
As we all know, WSB is receiving the most mainstream media coverage that it has ever had, thanks to the action over the past couple of weeks. Not only people who have never heard of WSB, but people who have never spared the stock market a thought in their entire life, are hearing about this wonderfully autistic community. "GameStop" was the second most trending Google search at the tail end of this week.
But many of us are unhappy with the mainstream media attention that WSB has been getting, and for good reason. Reddit is painted as some collective entity that planned to pump a stock to the moon with all of our individual hundreds of dollars (something that was not at all helped by that horrendous Twitter account). Weeks upon weeks of incredibly meticulous research and due diligence done by u/Uberkikz11 and u/Deepfuckingvalue have been reduced to so much as "Reddit mob pumps stock" in the eyes of the public.
In the days and weeks to come, WSB will be getting a large influx of new members thanks to all this public attention. Posts will ascend to levels of retardation never before seen. People asking WSB to pump penny stocks. People asking "how do I sign up for Robinhood". Remember, the perception of many new members will be "WSB made themselves rich by pumping GME, they can make me rich too". I urge all of you to keep the spirit of WSB alive and not let the influx of new degenerates dilute this place into a get rich quick forum for morons with a thirst for unscrupulous market manipulation tactics. The mods will have their work cut out for them, so use your downvotes and help them out as much as possible.
At the same time, however, remember that dumb money is still money. Do not reject people from the community because of their ignorance, because their ignorance is only the result of being misled by the media. Do not validate people's claims that WSB is an angry mob of Redditors baselessly campaigning for GME. Rather, educate them and gently caress the wrinkles out of their brains in a manner befitting a true WSB autist. **From Melvin and Citron's perspectives, this has turned from a struggle against a single online forum into... keep reading on reddit ➡
Don't adopt a cat with the mindset that they are incredibly low maintenance and that they can take care of themselves if you make sure to just give them the kibble and fill their water bowl. If you assume that taking care of a cat does not involve being as patient as a nun, take care of the street cats and join the feeding programs instead.
Before anyone says that it would be best to seek out a therapist, I don't have one around me or know of one that is not zealous. My country is known to have poor quality mental illness institutions and support groups. If I had I would have already booked a session and not post this.
I adopted the cat for the wrong reason, partially because my cousin (who I should've known better), told me that an emotional support animal like a cat would help me heal through the break-up with my fiance. Plus, they are apparently 'low maintenance'.
Yes my cat took my mind off that heartache, but she introduced other challenges and pains that no one I have known of who had cats had ever mentioned to me when I did my research before adopting one. When you raise a cat alone and with no one else to lean on when your cat gets sick or is testing you to the point that you get mental breakdowns...it's hard.
I syringe-feed her supplements every day, I brush her fur every two days, I brush her teeth every 3 days, I clip my cat's nails every three weeks, I clean her ears every week, I bathe her every month, I make sure that her stools show no signs of her being ill, I feel around her stomach (taught by vet) to see if she has hairball issues when she's complicated, I spend most of my budget on her wet food and supplements and I feel like I've sold my soul to the devil but hey, that's a cat hooman's life, at least mine.
For someone clinically diagnosed with depression and social anxiety, even getting one thing done on the list is incredibly difficult when I have bad days.
People tell me I'm lucky to have a cat companion, and I tell them it's a mixed bag of beans. I had finally acknowledged that I adopted for the wrong reasons and rather feel like I am happy about not being alone anymore, I feel lonelier than before knowing that when my cat gets sick I'm the only one who will be there for her and when I see other people who have the luxury of taking care of their cat with more than one person in the house, I feel even more lonelier and breakdown.
Plus when I'm having breakdowns I have to lock myself up in the bathroom because all I want t... keep reading on reddit ➡
EDIT: Thank you everyone for your great tips! So many great ones I hadn't thought of.
I don't know about anyone else who read this thread, but yesterday and today it inspired me to get quite a few things done I wouldn't have done otherwise :)
The closer I've gotten to decluttering everything, the more I've realised the importance of keeping the areas/rooms I've done tidy.
Until recently I thought once I finished, then I'd work on how to maintain everything, but unless I wanted the done areas to backslide, it's important to know before you've decluttered your living space, too. There may be others here who are thinking the same thing.
So whether you've just started in, are partway through, or have done your entire household, I figured everyone could benefit from maintenance tips :)
The best one I've found so far is doing a visual sweep of whichever room I'm in that's done, or an area of a room, and seeing if there's anything accumulated that belongs in whichever room I'm heading to. Then taking them where they belong.
What are your best maintenance tips?
All servers will come offline at 7 AM ( 12:00 UTC) for maintenance to introduce the Two to Tango update. We are anticipating downtime to be approximately 3 hours and you can find the notes below:
Happy New Year Rogue Company! Our first update for 2021, Two To Tango introduces a series of Limited Time Modes and two brand new maps. These new Skirmish maps are designed for close-quarters combat and quick action, so grab a friend and face another two-man team.
New Limited Time Mode: Wingman
This new mode is designed for intense and high stakes combat and puts you and a partner up against another two-man team on smaller Skirmish maps. You’ll depend on your teammate to quickly neutralize your opponents.
Standard Wingman (Coming soon)
Wingman Strikeout (Available with the update!)
New Limited Mode: Countdown
This brand new mode requires flexibility as your team attempts to control the bomb and prevent your opponents from defeating you.
Built to simulate combat in an industrial setting, Depot offers generous lines of sight for tracking enemy movement and quick skirmishes.
This Rogue Company training ground was built to simulate close-quarters combat and urban warfare. Back alleys and abandoned buildings give players opportunities to flank and out position the competition.
Here's a megathread for the upcoming maintenance that will bring us Update 3.0.2. All posts about the maintenance will be redirected to this thread.
###Game will be brought offline when this thread is ONE HOUR old. Maintenance begins when this thread is 30 MINUTES old. Some features of third party apps (like DIM) could be disabled then, before the game is offline.
###Game Downtime is 30 MINUTES (until WEEKLY RESET).
###Patch & Patchnotes should hit at WEEKLY RESET as well.
Please note that maintenance isn't fully over until one hour after reset, which means third party apps (like DIM, and your beloved /u/DTG_Bot) might not completely work until then!
