You do realize that the government is made up and elected by you right?

Just because america is fucked up doesn't mean the rest of the world runs their governments like ass.
Having been to a few retirement communities, and watched some documentaries on dementia, this one sounds like paradise to me. Generally dementia patients need a stressful amount of care that "modern" hospitals struggle to provide. Reading about these folks all living happily together like this is idyllic and for sure where I would want to end up if I lost my marbles. I have no delusions that I will be rich and be able to care for myself in that sort of state, nor would i want to burden my children with caring for me as my grandparents did to my parents.

But sure I guess, pile some more guns on the problem you have with healthcare in your country. See if that works.

at least most board partners are quite friendly regarding their return policies concerning it.

ug.. Coil whine happened to me a few years ago on a brand new card so i RMA'ed the card. At the time it took some convincing to issue the rma too iirc. They shipped me some refurb card that never worked right. And the next one didn't work right (unstable or just plain DOA cant recall). By now Im up to 40 bucks just in shipping these crap cards back to the company. Never did get a working card out of it. The next card they sent me was awesome (2gb video ram at the time), but it was never stable. Ended up just buying an AMD card after that.

Should have just stuck with the damn whine, but it was driving my wife crazy (i can wear ear phones). And it was a brand new card under warranty, so I wasnt going to go desolder coils right off the bat!

"Prices right now look like I will be getting another ADATA..." ... "TL;DR: Buy whatever is cheapest, the odds are always the same."

You got lucky. I had 8 out of 10 ADATA 64gb msata drives fail at my workplace over the last year. Adata is crap.

SSDs are a whole different ballgame. Comparing their quirks to rotating hard drives is akin to comparing a car to a train. They do not work the same, nor fail the same.

SSD are by far not all created equal and you must do research before buying them. I like samsung, intel and crucial personally, based on experience. Be sure to keep up with firmware updates as well!
