I've been emailing my insurance company. We recently had issues where the agent was not able to see any emails from me which contained attachments. We got a handle on things finally, but now every time I send one im wondering if it will make it. Just now I sent an attachment, I see the size "404KB" I jokingly think to my self "Greaaaat, they will never find it" 😂

Cleaning up follows and adding filters on my timeline. hopefully i can get back to that easy going, friendly, technological, wonderland that was. 😀

Since Mastodon is the elephant app, that makes all other social networks irrelephant.

Any Path of Exile players here? Would love to get a game going sometime!

Joke, drunks 

A guy was in a bar about as drunk as it's possible to get. A group of guys notice his condition and decide to be good Samaritans and take him home.
First, they stand him up to get to his wallet so they can find out where he lives, but he keeps falling down.
He fell down eight more times on the way to the car, each time with a real thud. After they get to his house, he falls down another four times getting him to the door.

Me pulling 5 week old hotdog buns out of the pantry, Not a bit of mold on them. "that ain't right" throws in trash.

We live in the worst version of the future when it comes to technology. Mostly because of the surveillance aspects.

"There are 455 updates"

Ahh there's the Manjaro I know.

First time having a cup of coffee from a french press. It's pretty good! A bit weak, probably because i didn't leave it long enough, but very smooth!

News article headline may be disturbing to some 

A related issue here, this site clearly pulls images in based on the headline or content of the article, but here it's accidentally seen 'second doctor' and pulled in an image of Troughton, the second actor to play Doctor Who.

Another Big Tech keynote is coming. Get ready for more privacy-washing. When Big Tech says they care about privacy, what they really mean is that nobody can exploit your data, except them.

If you make robots that take care of plants does that make you a Robotanist?
