I think I charge my phone more often than I used to. I used to let it get all the way to single digits before recharging. Lately, I've been recharging when it's still over 75%.

It kind of bothers me that my wireless mouse and headphones don't warn me about low battery reserves until they're below 15%.

I'm kinda curious why"xoxoxo" is kisses and hugs.

It does not seem very intuitively obvious to me.

The last decade or two. I've really started to feel like the official USA flag is a hate symbol—upside down rightside up, it really doesn't matter.

Now, I'm wondering though… is that true for most national flags? Or all of them?

I finally deleted my Facebook. It took me a while to find out how to do it. Their profile settings are a maze. sigh

If it's a two canvas painting, it's a diptych.
If it's three, it's a triptych.
Is there an analogous term for a single canvas? A tych?
What about four, five, six, or more?

Honestly, I really thought SEO was going to be the thing to kill Internet search. I really never had pseudo AI garbage on my radar.

Also, I never really had radar.

AI hallucination. I get that a lot. It can't seem to differentiate truth from fiction.

I had a dream that was a mash up of The Magicians and Mean Girls. It didn't even make sense.

What kind of bat would drive a car anyway?

I kinda think AskFedi should be called Fediversity. 🎓

Almanacs don't seem as popular as they were hundreds of years ago. 🤔

How many years can I still say that I'm "recently" diagnosed?

I wonder what percentage of autism is finding the fastest, most efficient ways to do things. 🤔

I'm trying out FediLabs (on Android). It takes some getting used to. I'm accustomed to Tusky.

The "out of the box" settings needed quite a bit of adjusting.

I definitely needed to enlarge everything—font size, icon size, line length…

Also switch to dark mode, and disable push notifications.

I freaking hate that everyone and everything tries to highjack push notifications. That should ALWAYS be off by default.

Funny. A character in this show who was declared by others to be disgruntled, argued that she used to be "perfectly gruntled".

Now I'm wondering if "gruntled" is a word that was ever commonly used.

@Cassandra Probably bloody messes, but I tend to take things literally more often than not.

I like following accounts from different countries on here. I have not found very many (any really) accounts from Asian or African countries though. Are there not that many on Fedi yet, or am I just not finding the right ones?

I saw someone talking about password rules…

The worst password idea I ever had was to actually write a script to generate 256 random characters, including special characters, to use for my WiFi password. I didn't realize that in the near future, I would have devices that needed WiFi but couldn't accept a cut and paste of the password because they had no USB ports or GUI that would allow it.

Manually entering WiFi passwords on "Smart TVs" and other devices sucks by the way.

Why do they still call them "podcasts" when there are no "Pods" involved?

Isn't it time to come up with a different name?
