Stop 👏 Using 👏 SMS 👏 As 👏 A 👏 "Second factor" 👏 (It blows my mind that financial services institutions seem to be the last to figure this out.)
This'll probably get lost in the "I can't believe Facebook was down" maelstrom, but: vice.com/en/article/z3xpm8/c…

Replacing my phone, and my old fav gReader Pro appears delisted. Favorite Android RSS readers that work with @TheOldReader? Many of their links to readers are dead.

FeedMe is the only one being updated from their list. The alternative would be, I guess, to switch to Feedly — with an Android app with no updates for almost a year. Doesn't inspire confidence.

I'm still figuring out how to configure FeedMe to work well for me, but I think it will work out.

Quality is a result of process, not a result of lack of change. As a CentOS user, I was pleased by moving resources to CentOS Stream, and I see it as a win for CentOS users and a win for RHEL customers.
An interesting report from CERN. "we now have months of experience running production workloads on CS8 without any significant issues" "Rate of change (system updates) are not as scary as we initially thought" "CS8 is now a recommended operating system for new installations"

I can't understand how ns-global.zone isn't completely deluged. It is awesome and a global treasure.
This is why I run a secondary authoritative only DNS service. So it's real easy for you to copy your zone outside your network. ns-global.zone/

I wonder how many people will get this? These days I've seen *programmers* not recognize even low powers of two... foxtrot.com/2021/10/03/pizza…

That's... not how this works. It might well have caused a sonic boom *before* splashing down. (Business Insider headline syndicated on Yahoo News)

Today, as I walked past a pharmacy window, I overheard a conversation: A family of three were asking for their first COVID vaccination. It's still worth encouraging vaccination! (With kindness!)

Yo Google, you can't figure out that this googlegroups list that my google account is actually signed up for isn't spam, even though I keep reporting not spam. The singularity y'all are seeing is... perhaps further away than it sometimes appears. ☺

Today I tried to do something weird in Kiri:Moto — cut a slot with an end mill the width of the slot.¹ It (reasonably) didn't work, but @grid_space_3d added a new feature tonight and now Kiri:Moto can do this. ¹Yes I know why this is generally bad. Works for this case though.

I'm reading "reviews" of dehumidifiers with built-in pumps, and frankly gems like "Plus, it removes 50 pints of moisture from the air and keeps it in the 14-pint water tank" make it clear that they are mostly "I read the spec sheet" fluff for "affiliate" programs. 🪄✨🤣

Amazon sold me a Taotronics dehumidifier, right before delisting taotronics. Taotronics refused warranty service and sent me to Amazon. Amazon initially refused service because I was past the return window. Now waiting 48h for an "exception" to allow return.

I tried to save my chat with amazon for reference if I need to talk to the CC for warranty, but amazon deleted the chat content before I could print to file. And I can't find my chats in my Amazon account. Nor do I have the chat contents sent to me in an email.

If you have read about this case, do you still buy anything from Chevron? If so, why?
Still strong as I turn 60 tomorrow. My third consecutive birthday on house arrest; the third straight year my son started school with his father wearing an ankle bracelet. I am on Day 769 of detention for a "crime" where longest sentence is three months. Hard to fathom.

On my Delta flight just now, they offered to rebook anyone who refused to follow the mask mandate sometime next year, so they can fly after the mandate expires. The cabin broke into laughter and applause. Well played!
