😀 Tom , I see that you got rid of the unique emoji requirement.
🏒 Lucian Marin It makes Subreply more joyful while it avoids display name impersonation.
🌲 Tho because everyone would be better off if there were no secrets. i couldn't say it better than scott adams, read his blog post scottadamssays.com...
😀 Tom Scott Adams is thought-provoking and interesting to read. I've read his stuff on-and-off for nearly two decades. I would be careful taking absolute stands from his ideas.
😀 Tom How many of you type something out to post, but then decide it's best not to hit enter?
☝ Jean-David Moisan From time to time.
Rsm Have done that.
💥 Danny Blast I wager that around 99% of us have done that.
😀 Tom Visiting Las Vegas. There are no places to sit outside, just No Loitering signs. The only places to sit are in roped-off cafes or in front of gambling machines. I am not impressed. Lots of homeless people too. It's also sad to just see people sitting in front of the slot machines, and realizing they're (practically) all losing money. The house always wins. I like gambling, but not like this.
😀 Tom You would think that my cat has learned by now that I cannot understand it's meows, just as I imagine the cat cannot understand my words.
😀 Tom For everyone on the right side of the bell curve, there has to be someone on the left side. :-/
😀 Tom I think it's finally time for me to make a smartphone app.
🏒 Lucian Marin I want to build a background restriction manager for Android. I found how to do it, but procrastination is really strong with this one.
😀 Tom I used to work on ships. Now about once a month I have a dream where I'm on a ship. Do other people have similar dreams where they find themselves in situations like where they used to work/live?
🏒 Lucian Marin You might be happy to know that Yara Birkeland is a zero emissions, zero crew cargo ship.
😀 Tom I wish I owned a company so that way I could offer jobs to people I come across who are good people but just don't fit in, or that I think have unrealized potential.
🏒 Lucian Marin You can invest in a start-up...
😀 Tom Holy Fu... Do any of y'all watch The Good Fight? They've been hitting it out of the park lately. FYI, The Good Fight is a spin-off of The Good Wife which caused the $4 Bitcoin bubble. Yes, you read that right.
🐇 Robert Blinov If it did, how would you know that it would be stopping _just_ spammers?
😀 Tom Just set up some honeypot addresses, and target those that send mail to it.
😀 Tom Why doesn't the NSA stop spammers? If they want to get on everyone's good side, that would probably do it.
🐇 Robert Blinov If it did, how would you know that it would be stopping _just_ spammers?
😀 Tom Just finished the second season of For All Mankind. It's a great TV series, highly recommended.
😀 Tom No one makes anything user-friendly anymore. Not iOS, not Android, not even cars or microwaves. WTF is going on?
🏒 Lucian Marin Simplyfing things at work isn't perceived as work. It's almost impossible for me to keep a job more than two years.
😀 Tom When I work with kids, I'm told that I have patience with them. I don't feel like I'm doing anything out of the ordinary, just treating a kid how they need to be treated. If people go out of their way to praise that quality, then it must be a rare quality. That's scary.
☝ Jean-David Moisan That's something I notice too in general.
🏒 Lucian Marin Reminiscence. We all want to go back to a time when we were happy.
