Shoot, I meant to post on my 6 year Subversary, but I forgot. Happy 6 year and 5 day Subversary to me!
Geez... I just visited Gizmodo's website for the first time in about 10 years. It's a shame.
Even now that you mentioned it, I won't open it. :)
Somehow I always forget to backup my Firefox open tabs when resetting my phone. I'm not devastated that I lost them though, so maybe I don't really need all those saved/open tabs?
What is using dating apps called? Online Dating, or App dating?
I'm using my web browser on my phone to look for an app. I find the app I'm looking for, so then I look around my desk for my phone so that I can pull up the app in the app store, and I can't find my phone >.< It took me longer than it should have. It reminds me of the time I was looking for my eye glasses, they were literally in front of my eyes.
I had a gallon of water in my hand the other day and I was simultaneously looking for where I put it. The human brain--so powerful and so weak at the same time.
To count the number of times I've lost my phone while on a call with someone....
Hmm... I'm looking for a receiver for some speakers. I'm checking Facebook Marketplace. I find one suspicious post. I click on the seller's profile, he has a bunch of TVs, computers, A/V equipment, electronic, etc for sale out of his run-down house. Yeah, he's not a buglar at all :-/
Anyone here ever use Chatroulette? I feel like chatting with a random person. Well... I just tried. After a bunch of guys immediately passing on me, one guy sounded like he was reading prose, but kept the same inflection as I tried to talk with him. I had a hard time hearing, and it didn't seem like we would have a good conversation, so I ended the session. Chat42.online was a bit better. Text-only, met a couple of people, but most there want to talk dirty.
Omegle is the popular one, I believe. Can't speak to its quality, never actually used it myself.
IRC is great for chat-only random person conversations.
I don't know why it's taken mouse manufacturers so long to develop a quieter mouse. I have a Logitech Pebble M350. The mouse click is like the click of a premium laptop trackpad. Solid and satisfying, not loud and harsh like every other mouse, including Logitech's own higher-end mice.
Like most computer issues, rebooting fixed it. I'm running 3 displays through a DP splitter through a TB3 dock :-) The laptop, splitter, and dock are all DP 1.4, and dock supports dual 4k 60Hz through a single DP port, so I thought it could run three 1920x1920 at 60Hz, but I can only get two at 60Hz and the third at 30Hz. That should be fine for my use. Annoying: it only works on the laptop's right TB3 port, not the left TB3 port. Oh well.
"Have you tried turning off and on again?" - IT Crowd. I'm glad you found the solution.
Hahaha, 's quote here is very apt.
Sigh... X11 hates me. The stuff I found online doesn't help me. I guess I'll create an account and post in a forum. If that doesn't work, I was thinking about reinstalling Ubuntu anyway :-/
What's the issue?
Echoing , what is the problem? There are here many Linux users, me included. So you're already in a kind of forum.
Damn, the popular emoji faces are taken.
Do any of y'all have a completely normal (non-vulgar) word that you hate? For me it's "ossify".
stinky. absolutely despise that word.
Moisture and smear
Problematic
Unfortunately. It really grind my gears.
Not any word in particular, but it bothers me how some people use complicated words when there are clearly simpler and more down to earth alternatives available. Damn you pedants!
Quixotic and palpable
One time, when I went to work, I accidently left my cell phone at home. That day sucked. But the thing is, I don't need my phone. I can turn off my phone for a week while I go backpacking, but day-to-day? I guess I am addicted to it. If my phone was glued to the wall, my life wouldn't really be different. I could answer texts/emails when I get home. I could read a paperback book if I'm waiting for something when I'm out. The GPS/maps/directions would be the biggest loss.
I really want a smartphone with an e-ink screen. I feel like that could go a long way towards disincentivizing me to use my phone, while maintaining the functionality. You know what? Let's e-ink my monitors while we're at it, too.
I have to remind myself that for years, I did ok without a smartphone. And I didn't get one until 2012 because for a long time I didn't feel like I needed one.
xrandr and a usb-c to 3x displayport adapter is amazing :-) Now I just need to get a mat for my rolling chair, a usb-c dock, and take down the crap on the walls the seller left, and my home office will be complete.
I saw someone put down some wood instead of a mat under the chair on reddit. Looked amazing!
Hacker News is still getting worse/popular (I forgot when I first started using, I know it was before the Bitcoin whitepaper). Any other similar sites anyone can recommend?
Is it though?
It indeed got popular, i don't think it got worse, but i see what you are trying to express here, the circle jerk is almost palpable lately. Check out lobste.rs maybe you'll like it there.
I'm with the others in thinking HN isn't much worse. In spite if its popularity (if you can call a tech forum like that popular), it's still very much one of the best places to find sane conversations on the web.
I've been liking smaller-scale link sharing places recently. Once I found interesting is hubski.com.
Spending the first night in my new-to-me house tonight. I closed on it a month ago, but gave the sellers a few days extra to move out, then I had to get new carpet, and also I had the garage floor epoxied. Everything is still in boxes and the furniture unassembled, but at least I have clean sheets and mattress.
Congratulations on the move! Sheets and mattress are the top priority on day 1 and it feels great to have them set up
