Going on vacation next week - 25th wedding anniversary. Debating whether to NOT take my computer/laptop/Surface with me and have a complete tech detox - just my phone for messages, not even fb, and even then service will be patchy.
I feel like banging my head against a wall every time I want to find that post that shows all the plugin header codes. Then I think "next time I find it, I'm going to bookmark it". Then I think "wait a minute ... maybe I bookmarked it last time because it took me so long to find it". Check bookmarks, and there it is
@taarna23's status just made me realise I haven't had any scam calls since that guy who hung up on me before he even began reading his script. How quiet it's been ... they were pretty much the only people who ever called!
New programmable keyboard. Setting key mapping, somehow triggered Colemak layout and couldn't figure out how to go back. Then I needed to type a long password with no option to see what I was typing. I think the universe is saying "Go to bed."
Request tip: If you cannot art, code or music, and you are asking someone to art, code or music for you, never say "It should be easy." The people who art, code and music (who know what they're talking about) will tell you (who don't) whether it is easy or not. They do not need you to tell them.
My new hobby is baiting scam callers. They usually hang up on me after I ask them 3 or 4 questions they can't answer correctly. The last one was SO green! He got past the introduction, choked on his reason for calling, and hung up! All I'd said was "I'm very well, thank you." I was CHEATED!
Anyone use a mechanical keyboard? What do you use? I ordered one, but haven't used one before and didn't have any to play with to get a feel for them. After something gentle and quiet, so went with Cherry MX Silent Reds. All the new terminology I had to learn!!!
Hey artists, if any of you like doing logos and could do with some extra cash, 48HoursLogo seems an interesting place to check out. I'm getting a logo done, and am shocked at how quickly people are making them compared with how much I'm paying!
If you post asking for help with something, try not to turn off potential helpers by acting like an entitled jackass in your opening request. I'm seeing a bit of this lately. Don't make yourself unpleasant to deal with. Nobody owes you anything, especially when you're using something you haven't paid for or said thanks for.
