  • Someone posted a funny meme on facebook a week or two ago. I replied "It's true!" Today I got a notification that my post was removed for violating fb's "spam and misinformation" policy, and a "3 strikes and you're out" warning. I am sitting here, thinking of all the time I would get back and how productive I'd be, if they kicked me off ...

    It isn't the growing of vegetables that procced it from what I understand but the preserving of them for later consumption. Apparently a fully stocked pantry is a red flag for violent extremism somehow. I guess it is a gateway drug, one minute you find yourself making peach preserves, the next you're plotting a violent overthrow of all of civilization...

    ...it couldn't just be that I want to eat healthier and stop giving Sam and Bezos all of my money as they increasingly monopolize after the pandemic response drove all the small businesses I used to frequent out of business, or that I have legitimate concerns about potential supply chain disruptions because of said pandemic; as far as facebook apparently sees it anyway.

    My interest in Facebook rapidly waned as I stopped playing Mafia Wars so I think I average logging in perhaps once a year in recent years.
    Odd thing is when someone who has my email and phone number sends me a LinkedIn message to ask why I don't drop into Facebook occasionally to let everyone know I'm still alive.........
    Love it when people say "bug" rather than "I didn't follow the instructions"

    I've seen worse. My client forgetting their own requirement, then list something as a "bug" because they forgot that was the requirement.

    I've had to gently tell a person that sitting in a crowded cubicle in a......big box store kiosk doing taxes.....that the "bug" was the keyboard being pressed as they were shifting around and probably either a notebook or........body parts........pressing keys. I diagnosed that using a remote desktop setup and watching what happened as they attempted to use the software......

    Forum tip of the day ...
    If you get a temporary suspension for being a jerk to people who are trying to help you, and arguing with mods and admins, don't go making new accounts. Chances are, if you p**s us off enough to suspend you for a week, we're not going to hesitate giving you a permanent ban when you give us a reason.
    I swear my post count is:
    40,000 moving threads and telling people not to doublepost or necropost
    3,000ish legit posts

    And Touchfuzzy, such amazing contradictory sentences. The second paragraph incredibly highlights the first... not. Also, I doubt someone claiming telepathy has anything to do with you. By all means, though, as I said, put "no thoughts" in the rules... otherwise, how is anyone supposed to know...? (Oh, but as it happens in 1984 nothing is illegal actually, so this forum has a good start...)

    this is a perfect example of how helpful a screenshot can be while you have limited information
    I was offered a great job, and turned it down when my current employer matched their offer. My teammate, who was a reference for me, then applied for the same job and got it, and accepted. Now I think that company hates me (for turning them down), and my current company hates me (for encouraging my teammate to apply - though they don't really know I did).

    In the end tho you got better pay and your friend got a better job... Sounds like a win-win to me xD

    And the other company got a better developer. The only one that loses is my current employer, who is now paying me more than I asked for, and is losing one of their best developers.

    It’s quite the conundrum. Like @Finnuval says tho sounds like a win-win for at least you guys.

    congrats about your new offer that’s great!
    So hubby and I bought a couple of wireless bluetooth headsets (I prefer wired, but our cat likes to eat headphone cables ... and mouse cables, keyboard cables, phone charges, iPad chargers ... you get the picture). Got home as shops were closing, only to discover neither of us has a bluetooth-enabled computer. :rolleyes:
    TFW your request for a salary increase is met with "not unless you have a job offer from another company"
    So you get an amazing job offer from another company, and in order to keep you, your company has to match it ... which means giving you an increase much higher than you originally requested.

    Ahhh... they usually keep you on longer if you're good at hiding the bodies. Yeah I could see where that would be risky. Really there's only one answer! Take the extremely risky and highly unlikely route of full time game dev! You got this! What could go wrong? :LZSexcite:

    Ewww @Kes I never even thought of that being a thing! Now there's even LESS of a chance I'll ever go on one (is there such a thing as less than zero in this context?)

    Still no offer from the new company, but multiple apologies at how long it's taking. A week ago they were waiting on approval for the "team structure" (a thing I'd expect to be approved before placing the ads). On Friday they told me they interviewed 2 people and want to hire us both. It's all clear now.

    So many threads to move to the right place. My post count is awesome, but 95% of it is due to moving things.
    I have been dying for a weekend when I didn't have to do anything, so I could do the last of my unpacking, clean my "office" and set up all my sewing stuff. Now that I finally have one, I actually don't want to do anything. :(

    Ugh! I had forgotten how difficult it is to write a good resume and cover letter. So glad I don't have to job seek very often!

    I hate cover letters. Hate them. It gets exhausting cheerfully telling people how good I could be for their company, only have them mentally fill in at the end of it "if I were the correct gender for the job."

    I really sometimes think I shouldn't have gone into a traditionally male-dominated field, but I love what I do, dangit.

    o.o ...sorry. /rant

    @taarna23 Or be declined a job because of a stupid personality test.

    "Sorry, your persoanlity type just isn't what we're looking for. What do you mean these tests are utter nonsense, and the results easily manipulated by simply tailoring your answers to meet a specific criteria!"

    @The Stranger Oh, gosh. If I get those I make sure to answer what I think they want. ...which, if resulting in a job, unfailingly results in a terrible job.
    Worked until 8 last night, then stayed up until a bit after midnight watching NCIS. It was the moment I went to bed that my cat decided was the best time to wake up, then spent the next 3 hours prowling around the house with his pitiful meow/howling. I'm not exhausted AT ALL now!
    Looks like the spammers are out and about again. If you see any, please report their post or their profile. Thanks.

    You guys have the MasterChef that runs like 6x a week and actually teaches you cool techniques in Australia, right? I always wished the US version could be like that; instead it's just another overwrought cooking-themed reality competition show (though definitely one of the better ones).
    Shaz
    Shaz
    @Wavelength yeah, that's the one. Love it, esp with the new judges. They don't show many master classes anymore, but I think you can go to the network website and view them.
    Masterchef Australia started again a couple of weeks ago. Have You Been Paying Attention (my fave show) starts again tonight. They are both playing havoc with my NCIS viewing!
    Moving day tomorrow! Do I keep packing? Or do I play games and browse forum? Decisions, decisions!

    Uh ... also ... my hubby put stuff from the laundry tub into the washing machine this morning and found a green tree frog at the bottom. So that's a plus, though I'd prefer them to stay OUTside. (We also brought our frog family with us - they live in our empty plant pots and we weren't leaving those behind).

    The other plus is we have 3 cats. The cat with one tooth caught this mouse.

Feeling like my new profile picture is nice. Thinking of making it semi-permanent, does any one has an opinion? Does it look too evil or does it work as a public profile picture? :)

My washing machine is a supernatural being. I lost a piece of clothing in there a month ago; searched up and down, inside other clothes, nothing. It just vanished.
Today, put in a new load. When I pull it out, the missing clothing is back! And a sock was sacrificed in the process :yswt2:
thought I'd upgrade to mz from mv cause of the nice quality of life features but ****ing hell why couldn't they allow old plugins to work in it and secondly how come in over a year since it's release has there been no mz version of something so crucial as a non grid based movement plugin. I guess I'll stick with mv. (why wasnt mz just an update to mv anyway literally nothing substantial changed..)
