  1. @adiwan Yeah, Carmen Sandiego was good, even if they did whitewash the history of the Samurai caste.... Lol

  2. @adiwan That's sounding sadly par for Netflix, post-BoJack. They coulda had another with Tuca and Bertie, but nnoooo, they had to fall asleep at the wheel.... Disenchantment is disenchanting me as of late, feels like every season is bookended by interesting big-P Plot moments, and filled with trivial slice-of-life misadventures. A whole season of not exploring themes and character, ending with some sudden developments and cliffhangers, only to be semi-resolved in the first 2 of the next season and shunted aside until the final 2 or 3....

  5. @adiwan in specifically the case of iMessage would requiring the user to have a registered Apple computer, phone, or tablet attached to their account not prevent something like this, as you’d still have to buy into the ecosystem to use it elsewhere?

  8. @adiwan I'm just gonna pretend that this is why my joints all pop, not because I've been falling apart for 3 decades, but out of courtesy for people I may accidentally sneak up on otherwise

  11. @adiwan that’s almost as expensive a diet as going vegan. Almost.

  12. @adiwan Oh I'm sure there's more to it than that, what with the fundamental interconnectedness of all things

  14. @adiwan I'm almost excited to watch the sequel either fizzle or flop, but not willing to commit in case people's tastes are as bad as I fear

  16. @adiwan I've tried messing with a few scammers/spammers in the past, but I seem to be no good at it. They never reply to my responses, I must be too obvious.

  17. @adiwan You know it's never going to "be" over, right? You can't exactly get rid of a respiratory disease that almost everyone has had alread, and the mindless proponents of the things that are supposed to stop the disease don't realize know what the law of diminishing returns are. People are over it, no one cares anymore; they'd rather get sick for a while instead of wearing masks and get forced medications than pretend like it'll one day go away entirely. The most you can do is stop holding things up by wearing masks all the time for no good reason and, maybe, getting sick once in a while, like normal.

  19. @adiwan It’s to be expected, honestly. The US outlawed slavery long before most modern American companies got their start, and the ones that do go back that long are from New England which was less reliant on slave labor than other places, I’m sure if like Coca Cola existed in 1830 I’d be able to point at them and go “hey this company owned slaves”

  21. @adiwan I live in a town with a super substantial population of middle-aged immigrants so most of them have no idea what Venmo is, they’ve been doing Western Union since the 90s so there’s no going back now

  26. @adiwan Yeah, failing a better solution I've side-eyed a KeyTWO, new-old-stock. Sliding horizontal keyboard is probably still my favorite, I had an old LG (Ally?) that did that.

  29. @adiwan Yeah, I had bought it for "selfie-ing" I guess, lol. But I've had some success using it for stationary photography (like birds on the bird feeder) where it lets me see much better to begin with and lets me be sure of the shot before I hit the remote switch.

  30. @adiwan I've got a 7" monitor I've tried dual-ing with. It's a lot nicer than the 3" built-in screen on my camera, but really insufficient for modern desktop use lol
