@Rheall I am curious about Animal Crossing. I feel like it would be something my partner would enjoy.
So, Animal Crossing New Horizons is the one everybody plays?
Get my partner a Switch, or a Switch Lite?
Any advice is good advice. I am lost.
@Castopod alpha 15 is out!
Why do companies promote two-factor?
1) Less customer interaction for password and account hack issues?
2) Possibly protects company server somewhat more from hackers.
3) ******Cannot find two-factor code? Lose device with authorization? Sign up to our service again so we can inflate our use numbers! ******
I now imagine @sean as a radio DJ for the services, a la Good Morning Vietnam. Mostly because his DJ alter ego would be Airman Silly.
If you dream of yourself struggling to sleep, does that mean you got good sleep because you had a dream?
Asking for my friend, #anxiety
Wouldn't it be nice if any and all text presented to users by any kind of computer interface - website, mobile app, desktop app, literally anything - could be easily selected and copied to the clipboard? So that it can be pasted into translation tools, or search engines, or bug reports, or documentation? And when I say "wouldn't it be nice", I guess I mean "how is this not a self-evident truth that the industry didn't realise and achieve decades ago"? As far as I can tell, we are actively moving away from this goal, since text highlighting in websites has become ever more of a crapshoot in recent years, and is often actually impossible.
Oh hey, the ad model doesn't work,for us anymore and you were not buying our filter packs so our free photo editing app you've used for 10 yrs is now a subscription-based service! We bet you would have liked to receive a message like this, but instead we thought it would be best to surprise you the next time you open the app.
ME: um...what? This pivot feels like a 'fuck you' when you do it this way.
Oh my eyes. I really need to figure out my display on my 10+ yr old macbook with @ArchLabsLinux
I cannot adjust the brightness and it is making my eyes so tired.
It worked before, but I did a clean install months ago and struggled to get it to work properly for a week before giving up.
The Evolution of Support:
1950s- Friend, this will last forever or my name isn't General Electric!
1960-1970- Hello, sir or madame. How can I help you today?
1970-1980- WELCOME TO THE PHONE LABYRINTH, Press 1 to get lost.
1990-2010- Hello sir or madame, I am reading from a script and cannot help you with individual issues.
2015-present- Hello, I'm an AI pretending to sound human in this email. My name is Elizabeth and seeing the key words you typed, here are the Bullshit answers I have.
I know many people have branded 2020 as awful for obvious reasons. However, I worry that we as humans are missing the point.
A new year won't fix the pandemic. It won't fix the rise of xenophobia and racism in most of the 1st world countries. A year from now the climate will still be problematic. You and I will mend these issues. Humans working together. Yes, it will take time, but a new year won't bring us 'back to normal.' As a species, we need create 'a new normal.' Leave the past.
It's time to write a quick article for a local publication. I am sad that I seem to have never outgrown that petulant child who doesn't like assignments. The only person that lets me write about things that interest me is...me. This could explain why my personal blog isn't a household recognizable brand.
@Rheall Hey. Hi. Just checking in. How are you? What have you been up to? How is things?
Would like to either recommend a good, unobtrusive alternative to #google here, or able to state with confidence that no captcha is needed (the website just registers the email adress with a form post).
What are your recommendations?
I will add in a poll for good measure..
🔑 How do you protect your mailing list..
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
