Masks are useful but not perfect.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33087517/

Important takeaway:
Offering a sarcastic critique without explanation is retarded.
That second quote is pretty much what I figured.  Larger droplets, etc. can be stopped or caught by the mask, but not everything.  I still think the social distancing is the most effective thing done.  Also, for whatever reason, coughing and sneezing in public seems to happen far far less than before. 

The social distancing is about the only thing I still do for the most part.  Most people I see still do it.  They may not stick to 6 feet, but compared to 2019, it is a big difference.  Very few people wear a mask here unless they are required to for work.

As my wife Swmbo and I say...you are gonna get it or not.  Nothing you do including getting the jab will negate that.

The mask thing has some reasonable efficacy.  Then the .gov stepped in with pointless and draconian mandates only the military could love.  And here we are.

I laugh at every moron I see driving down the road, alone, wearing a mask.

Well done.  We've taken a PPE measure that actually had the slightest bit of efficacy and turned it into a covid cult rite.  *expletive deleted*ing morons.

Had we played this right, we could've ended up like the Japs, where wearing a mask while sick is the polite thing to do.  Good *expletive deleted*ing luck now.

Out of curiosity, how do you know where you caught it?
I got it last year while doing all the things, but I have no idea where.

I wore a mask. I maintained the 6 foot rule. I greeted people with the elbow bump, etc. I take vitamin "C", "D3", CoQ10, and zinc. I caught the covid on my annual checkup at the VA hospital.

I'm fully recovered now and can boast that I now have natural immunity with the trained "B" cells at the ready to spring into action and produce the required antibodies when the next Covid-19 pathogen attempts to invade. 

Nothing I did or wore in the first paragraph prevented me from contracting the Covid - even in the supposedly clean hospital environment.

Do you have a microcenter near you? Their in store prices can save a considerable amount on a build. CAD isnít all that demanding for a modern system. Youíll get decent performance from pretty much any 8th Gen or newer I5, or I7 just using the onboard graphics if youíre doing 2D renderings. If youíre doing 3D youíll need a discrete graphics card, though I doubt you are if youíve been using a NUC to do your work up until now.

At the price point youíre talking about, a pro graphics card is just going to be a waste of funds. A low level nVidia card will do what you need for considerably less. Quadros are generally identical to their gaming cards with a slightly different cooling solution and drivers that are tailored for professional use. I have an RTX 3090, itís basically identical to the RTX 6000 Quadro card with the exception of the msrp. The 3090 lists at $1500 (good luck getting one for that. Mine was a pull from a clientís system) the 6000 lists for $6200.. same guts.

Pretty sure I saw that horse moving, maybe it was just twitching  :laugh:

I'm not sure that particular horse will ever be declared dead.
