    2 pin sockets need to be banned.
    I'm glad I live in the UK where all sockets are 3 pin and fused.
    Fused plug that is not the socket.

    Two prong outlets with a thumbscrew for a tethered ground cable is literally the norm over there still.

    Dang. I've seen adapters to let you plug a 3-prong American device into a 2-prong socket with a separate ground, but every socket I've seen in a building newer than the Nixon administration has been 3-prong anyways.

    Wtf Canadia?

    I can't wait for GFCI duplex plugs to become standard.

    Hell I'd be even happier with GFCI duplex plugs with integrated 2A usb ports.

    Those adapters just redirect ground into the screw for the faceplate of the socket

    I think they are mounted the right way.

    This one doesn't include the new Brazilian standard (It's different from the swiss one) that's the worst aberration that has ever come to spawn earth



    It made almost all our existing sockets obsolete and even to this day there isn't a real reason other than "we must have a national identity socket" for it's existence, before we used to have a comfy universal socket, but the new plug isn't backwards compatible with it!

    Writers do this shit on purpose for 2 reasons.
    A) A real IP might actually not be a good idea to put in a show so... make it something no one will ever hit
    B) Writers actually have an unspoken contest where they try to get the most ridiculous shit they can on air (I'm dead serious.)
    The same can be said with phone numbers, why 555-something? It's so people don't actually call that number. It has happened in the past so writers nowadays just put 555 to make it obvious that it's a fictional number.

    And obligatory

    Not all of them. I had one that came with like a 3" length of exposed copper that you were supposed to wrap around a piece of rebar you hammered into the ground.

    I got rid of it because a) I never needed it and b) it was actually kind of dangerous to have that much exposed wire that could slip into one of the live parts of the socket.

    So I was wondering why my ESXi 6 root user couldn't login anymore when I changed the roots password.

    OK the problem is a bug in VMWare ESXi 5.5 : If you change a password to something longer than 30 characters it will not complain but your password will be changed anyway to only the first 30 chars of the provided password ! To be able to login again, you have to use the first 30 chars of your password.
    (Seriously, Changing it to below 30 chars solved it)

    REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    No seriously fuck this shit. Paypal does the same bullshit.

    Could be worse, I had an Archos 5 years ago and it would let you set a pin that is under 4 characters but it wouldn't let you enter a pin less than 4 characters so you would be fucked.

    I just bought a higher end HP consumer one that's pretty cool. Printed some photos on it and it was all good.

    Setup was about as easy as "plug in, connect to wifi, let windows find drivers."

    Best guess is they're off a product page of some sort and the checked ones are compatible with said product.

    Denmark looks just so happy to be a socket.
    That exact specimen is happy because unlike 99% of sockets here in Denmark, it's grounded.

    When people get a laptop charger with a grounded cord, the first step is to cut that ground pin off (assuming you want to actually connect the charger to anything).

    I want a VR window manager that emulates a desk with monitors and can be skinned to provide different environments.

    Office cubicle, laptop on a beach, modern house with a huge window backing onto a beautiful mountainside or even the bridge of the Enterprise.
