Remember the old refrigerators with these massive doors that could only be opened from the outside? These things became deathtraps for playing children when they were put outside to be taken away to the dump. The magnetic doors can be pushed open from the inside, even by a child, but the warning obviously still is in the manual. Nothing really funny about it.
I was thinking the same thing.
I believe that California still has a law on the books that any refrigerator/freezer that you have in the garage or outside must be locked, have the door physically removed, or have holes drilled into it to prevent suffocation risk.
(Obviously, the latter 2 options are only for units not in use.)

SWMBO and I were sitting there watching a move via the HTPC, and she asked, "Why is there a dark green border around the picture?"
I had noticed it a month ago, but was happy to let it go as long as SWMBO didn't mention it. I did some research, and found that my current video card didn't have the juevos necessary to support the (almost) 4K resolution of the TV, and what we were seeing was a 1920x1080 display on a monitor that was capable of 3840x2160, which resulted in an unused portion of the screen.
My motherboard has a PCI 2.0 slot, but the only video cards capable of 4K resolutions at 60Hz are PCI 3.0. Apparently, I can still use a PCI 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot, and reap the benefits of the higher resolution. I ordered a GTX 1050-based card ($170), so I guess we will see. Funny coincidence - we currently have about $4K invested in our upgrade to 4K TV.

My owner is as short sighted as I am and she's also used to watch poor quality streaming of obscure TV series which the creator failed to destroy completely... and I don't watch the TV unless she forces me in a professional wrestler headlock.
