Why YSK: Wiping off headlights and tail lights are to help others see you, even if you don't need the headlights to see. Wiping off the hood prevents snow from flying back up at the windshield making it hard to see even with the wipers on and wiping it off the roof prevents it from flying back at others. I thought most people knew this but driving around I see way too many people that haven't done these things.
The roof part is the most important and there's ice on the roof because that can do some damage to another car If it flies off at high speeds.
Edit: so I just looked it up and it turns out that not wiping off your headlights is illegal in Michigan as well as allowing things to fly off your car that could impair other drivers view. It just seems that nobody cares or knows.
Final update for the true onions: All the cooking is done. I have another wonderful pot of caramelized onions. The smell really wasn't too bad once the cooking finished. Since we've got a huge orange tree and Costco sized vanilla extract, I put a big handful of orange peels, a couple generous swishes of vanilla extract, and some water in a pot and let it simmer. The house smells great. I will never forget you onions out there.
Update 2: After doing a majority of the cooking in the instant pot outside, the onions are now on my stove. Luckily I just got a new range hood less than a week ago so that's on full blast. Guess what we've decided to include in dinner tonight? Hint: it's onion rings.
Update: Day 2 is upon us. I just finished cutting up about 8 quarts of onions. I have an instant pot coming up to pressure on my porch as we speak. A fan is blowing in the direction of my cutting station to the window. I immediately washed all my cutting equipment and wiped the counters with a mix of dish soap, water, and lemon essential oil. I promise I’m not a crazy essential oil lady, I just like the smell and it makes a good cheap all-purpose cleaner. See you all in about 2 onions for another update?
Edit: Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. I have decided to postpone the onion marathon until tomorrow due to me being drugged up on Benadryl and not wanting to enter an onion-induced coma. Tomorrow is a new onion. Wish me onion. Onion.
Hi Reddit, I'm Davepl and I'm stoked to answer any questions you have about the projects I worked on or about working at Microsoft during the 90s in general. I was on every major operating system from MS-DOS through XP & Server 2003.
My general timeline starts in 1993 on MS-DOS, where I worked on Smartdrv, Doublespace, Setup, Diskcopy, and others.
I soon moved to Windows NT, where I started in RPC/OLE and moved to Windows shell to undertake the port of the Win9X user interface over to Windows NT.
Along the way I worked on our initial version of Media Center, Space Cadet Pinball, Windows Product Activation, and others.
For background info on how I got to Microsoft, the stories of how Task Manager, ZipFolders, and Pinball came to be, and proof (video of my cardkey, office, etc) please check out the following video:

For some background info, I followed this sub back in 2017. I was in high school, autistic, and poor. I saw the gains and knew this was the way. I became an economics major to enhance my autism but was surprised to learn how little any of the shit I learned translated into the market. I asked my professors what they thought about wsb and they basically laughed us off as a bunch of idiots.
When I saw the GME revolution I took what little college money I had and bought 100 shares of GME. This is our chance to stick it to those who never took us seriously. Either we forge economic history or loose it all, I’m willing to take this risk. Fuck the hedge funds and fuck anyone supporting them. Over the week I learned more then I’ve learned from any of my classes in college.
We are the future
GME to 1000 🚀
Edit: Thanks so much for all your feedback! I'm going to make some minor adjustments to the build:
- adding a second PCIe cable for the GPU
- adding a GPU support bracket
- adding at least one other fan on the front/input side

If someone had told me even three years ago that I would build a PC one day, I would have told them they're bullshitting me. I'm one of the least computer-savvy people I know. But I knew the day would come where I would have to upgrade from my (now 8-9 years old) geriatric prebuilt laptop. I wanted to play games. I wanted to start anew on a clean slate. And I wanted to do it right. So I saved up some money and spent months researching, starting from getting to know the general functions of the components, to comparing brands and asking for feedback.
This sub has been tremendously helpful to me. I think I learned the most from first-time builders who took the time to explain the mistakes they made, and what to be aware of. Little things like remembering to remove the plastic from components, to ALWAYS refer to the manuals, or just to be patient during assembly. I waited almost a month before I started putting together my PC, mainly because I didn't have my new desk yet, but also because I was scared. Even when I first unboxed the case, I started freaking out thinking I couldn't do it (I asked my dad for moral support/help, god bless him). But in the end, it somehow turned on without any problems. (Edit: deleted a video link here)
I still don't think I'm the best person to ask for advice, but I will say this: Believe in yourself. If my dumb ass can do it then you can too. Just take your time and stay calm. (Also watching PC assembly videos and taking rigorous step-by-step notes ended up being super helpful.)
(Also I opted out of all the peripheral lighting/RGB stuff because I kinda... think it's overkill ahahahaha)
