Microsoft Outlook webmail needs per alias names

Microsoft’s Outlook (webmail) offers creation of aliases. Which is great. You have your base e-mail and you may want to create new e-mail addresses within it without having to create whole new Outlook e-mail account and all the e-mails to all aliases are sent and received under single mailbox.

All great till this point. Problem is, for some silly reason, Microsoft decided to allow aliases, but sticks your name to all of them.

So, if your name is “John Smith” and that’s what you have set in Microsoft Account, the sent e-mail address to the recipient will look like this:

John Smith <john.smith@outlook.com>

But then, if you create an alias “sheepmaster@outlook.com”, the e-mail address will look like this:

John Smith <sheepmaster@outlook.com>

As you can see, by creating an alias, you’ve created a new e-mail address, but Outlook webmail, for some silly reason doesn’t allow you to change the name in front. So, what’s the point of alias when it sticks your real name to it regardless.

And to make things even worse, it strictly has to be NAME and SURNAME. You can’t even make an anon e-mail with just your single word nickname. Nope, can’t be done at all. Two words, name and surname.

Microsoft really needs to rethink the design of this. It has the aliases there, but they messed them up entirely so they don’t really make any sense or use. Was even thinking of buying the Office 365 package, but this was a show stopper really. I need entirely separate aliases, one with real name for professional use and one made up for goofing around on the interwebs.

Solderless CPU protector IHS/shroud

So, I was thinking about this. We used to have naked CPU cores back in the past and one of the reasons why everyone started doing IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) wasn’t really to spread heat as much as to protect the CPU core from chipping on the edges when mounting and dismounting CPU coolers and not placing it absolutely flush caused higher pressure on edges of CPU core, chipping it as a result. I remember my AMD Athlon XP 2400+ having edges chipped a bit after many mountings of CPU coolers. It was still working, but it looked a bit ugly and such chipping can possibly ruin it.

The main problem doing this are thermals. Ideal method of removing heat from CPU is having heatsink attached to it directly with highest heat conductive thermal compound in between.

With IHS, you’re essentially making a sandwich of materials and bonding compounds that are far from optimal. Sure, IHS can be copper which has excellent thermal conductivity, but bonding compounds usually aren’t. Even gallium used in liquid metal compounds has like over 10x lower heat conductivity than copper. And soldering IHS to CPU can cause the solder compound to crack in rare cases as it’s constantly expanding and shrinking as CPU is heating up and cooling down rather rapidly.

So, Intel started using regular thermal “bonding” compound even under the IHS where it’s contacting CPU. Sure they saved hundreds of thousands of dollars, but they also made CPU’s with absolutely atrocious thermals. This isn’t really an issue with low end CPU’s that barely get warm under load, but 12 or 16 core CPU can’t possibly work well.

I got this idea while looking at the other segment, GPU’s. GPU’s still have core die fully exposed. Partially because heatsinks always come pre-installed by manufacturer and partially, because they do a small trick that I think could be borrowed by Intel and AMD for CPU’s. Sort of proposal of 2 designs quickly mocked in Paint 3D…

CPU_Shroud

This one is borrowed directly from graphic cards. GPU’s have been using metal guard shrouds like this for ages and what these do is prevent placement of heatsink at an angle that is too high which is what causes the edge chipping. And given we can make chips at 7nm, I’m pretty sure they can manufacture whole CPU’s in such way that CPU core and metal guard shroud are perfectly flush, meaning shroud and CPU would be perfectly leveled on the package substrate. Shouldn’t be a problem even for multicore designs like Ryzen or EPYC. They would have to tighten up tolerances, but in the end, it would actually end up being easier than having to perfectly solder 4 or more individual chips to the IHS on top.

CPU_Protector

This second example was actually my initial “proposed” design, but I later figured out there would be issues with such design, mostly in terms of material used if solid and bending issues if hollow. Also, thermal compound would get stuck into thin crevice between guard and CPU as well as issues where liquid metal would potentially get inside and no way of cleaning it out. Filling the crevice with some sort of epoxy would complicate expansion of metals and core and I don’t think it would be a good solution.

So, I think the first one would work better, be able to protect the naked CPU core and be easy to maintain in terms of cleaning thermal compound.

I think heading in this direction is a necessity because we are increasing cores with each CPU release and having them under several layers of suboptimal heat conductive materials is a really bad design decision as thermals are getting worse and worse with every CPU release. “Heat spreader” should be a copper base of the CPU heatsink or water block, not an extra layer of copper between two layers of thermal compound which is just terrible.

Having fully exposed CPU gives you best way of removing heat and metal guard would prevent chipping of CPU die. Probably not 100%, but enough to allow several re-mounts of CPU without any damage.

I really hope AMD and Intel will consider heading in this direction because CPU’s in general look pretty terrible these days in terms of thermals…

Gab is back online!

After getting kicked offline by Joyent because Gab happened to have that shooter asshole among its users (gee, why no one booted Twitter and Facebook for having same retard among their users as well?) is now back online. It still has some hiccups, but it’s working. Will probably take a bit for it to become fully operational.

All this dicking around and pissing on Gab is clearly politically motivated because they did nothing wrong and nothing different than how Twitter or Facebook operate. And yet Gab is getting fucked in the ass on all possible ends, but Twitter and Facebook, nothing at all. Facebook even ran fucking white supremacist ads in the meanwhile which means they actually took money from someone and ran with it and they are just “sorry” now. Fuck off.

I hope this desperate censoring of Gab bullshit will ends soon. And kudos to Andrew Torbo for not giving up.

Banned again from Vivaldi forums XD

Ahaha, you can’t make this shit up. So, I got banned again from Vivaldi forums.

First I got banned because dumb moderators got butthurt over perfectly civil feedback I gave them. Because they arrogantly just banned me straight away I ranted about it here on my blog. Because why the fuck not? If they don’t allow me to respond there, then I’ll do it here, on my terms. And some lovely chap from actual Vivaldi team got in touch with me, thanked me for feedback and unbanned me.

Days and weeks have passed and I didn’t post anything on Vivaldi forums since then. Today,  get e-mail that I was banned from Vivaldi forums (again) for, wait for this shit… coz I was rolling on the floor for whole hour after reading it XD

This is the reason why you have been banned:

Violating Terms of Use / Offensive language at https://rejzor.wordpress.com/2018/10/02/vivaldi-browser-forums-are-run-by-fucking-morons/

First of all, I can’t violate your fucking ToS by posting a comment or rant OUTSIDE of your fucking webpage and secondly, stick your fucking offensive language up your sorry fucking puritan ass. Jesus fucking christ, this obsession with politeness everywhere is becoming fucking revolting.

The rant solely exists because of you fucking idiot moderators. If you weren’t such fucking arrogant retards, none of it would exist in the first place. I don’t even give a shit if I’m banned anymore, I don’t want to participate in such garbage community anyway.

PayPal just banned Gab from using their service

So, the news was out few hours ago by the founder of Gab, Andrew Torba. PayPal banned Gab.com from using their service because the synagogue shooter happened to also be on Gab.com…

Nevermind that the asshole also posted on Facebook and even Twiter afaik and those are still doing business fine with PayPal and are not held responsible for anything, all while they are still hosting HUNDREDS of ISIS pages and no one gives a flying fuck about it. But Gab, Gab must be shut down and silenced because they support free speech and happen to have 5 nationalists on it (oooooo ohhhh the evil nationalists!!!! 🙄 ). Give me a fucking break with bullshit like this. All of a sudden Gab is responsible for users on their service, but other leftist pandering services like Facebook and Twitter aren’t, because reasons you know… but sure, tell me all about how there is no agenda going on about it…

There are also hints of registrars trying to ban Gab.com together from existing anywhere and predictions that even banks will try to pull the same stunt in attempts to shut Gab down. They must be fucking furiously desperate to be trying to pull shit like this off. PayPal’s shit that has already been done ain’t any different.

UPDATE 2018-10-29

And so, Gab.com got deplatformed yet again by another hosting company (this time Joyent)…

GabDehosted.png

I don’t understand the logic behind it other than everyone being controlling scumbags who want to shut down free speech and have all the sheep neatly under control what they say on hardcore leftist controlled platforms by snowflake lunatics. When terrorists and psychopaths are on Twitter or Facebook, no one demands their fundings and hosting to be blocked or taken away or have them accountable for actions of one idiot, but for Gab, somehow everyone instantly unifies in a single voice of a fucking NPC and fuck them in the ass in matter of hours. Is this really the future everyone wants? Looks like all the dystopian sci-fi movies weren’t so far off after all… We still have time to really fuck it all up. Good job everyone who are constantly trying to deplatform Gab… You are the fucking problem, not Gab and people on it.

Express yourself freely on Gab.com, a true free speech social network

Why Gab?

Tired of being punished for every word you say because some dumb snowflake gets offended by it? Tired of being endlessly suspended because some fucker doesn’t understand the concept of irony or sarcasm? Tired of “people of color”, “muslims” and “women” being this protected class of whom none shall speak ill? You just want to express yourself without some asshole constantly barking at you for being “too left” or “too right” of politics or if you just plain don’t give a fuck about it?

Well, then you might want to join GAB.

Gab is a social network which has a similar feel to Twitter, but without any of the censoring bullshit and hard left authoritarian lunacies (and without right ones as well). No one there will coddle your feels. In fact no one gives a shit about your feels. They give you the tools to build up your echo chamber by muting words and users or block them entirely if you want, but no one will run network wide “algorithms” to shadowban or censor others on behalf of your sorry ass fragile existence. I don’t even understand why Twitter has such tools when everyone apparently expects them to censor shit automatically and globally. It always pissed me off. Stop wrapping me in cotton wool, hit me with unrefined opinions of others. I can handle them. Instead dumb Twitter kept warning me about fucking “sensitive” content and if I really want to see it despite having all that shit disabled in the settings.

Banned from all app stores for crimes of free speech

The crazy left is so terrified of this notion that no one is controlling the speech on a platform that they had to go and literally ban Gab from both, GooglePlay and Apple App Store with an excuse of “hate speech promotion”. It’s so obvious what they did even Ray Charles can see it. And he’s blind and dead…

Install Gab from their official webpage (only download from there)

Android 8.x should ask you to allow installation of APK from unknown source when you try opening it, add the app performing the install to the exclusion (usually the browser itself or the File Manager of some sort) and install the Gab. No version available yet for Apple devices at this moment.

Spreading FUD about Gab to scare people from using it…

There will also be people who will try to convince you that Gab is a home of white nationalists and literal nazis. Well, that’s “fake news” as people like to put it these days. Yeah, at the moment, there are a lot of conservatives and people with right sided politics on Gab, because they’ve been suspended, banned and kicked from pretty much all major social platforms which are all owned and controlled by crazy hardcore leftists who are slowly but efficiently starting to eat each other already. But that doesn’t mean people with different opinions and politics aren’t welcome on Gab. Everyone’s welcome on Gab.

I’m not what you think I am for promoting Gab…

Reading this post you might think, damn, this Trump loving white dude must be a right winger for sure. And you’d be wrong. I’m slightly left leaning libertarian. Just few taps away from center. The dirty centrist basically. When you’re pissing everyone off, you’re doing it just right. Remember that.

I’ve dumped Twitter after getting suspended twice for stupid bullshit (of which some you could read here on my blog as well) and I was so fed up and pissed, I just deleted it all. And now I’m exclusively on Gab. I regret nothing, even though it’s still a bit quiet for now.

So, come on over to Gab and express yourself freely without having to worry some overlord on top will get butthurt and punish you over your opinions or words. It just feels so liberating in this crazy world obsessed with political correctness and censorship…
