@FoodieKenobi That's way more than I thought it would be. Delivered?

I have some white plastic chairs which look dirty, but will not wipe clean. While they are old, they are not all scratched up and the finish seems intact. The plastic just seemed to have darkened in some areas.

Rather than landfill them (or worse save them but never use them), there must be a "land on a comet" age cleaner, or paint that will make these look like they are only two years old.

Help me hive mind!

@human3500 Comet? The bleach and mild abrasive might be enough.

OOoooh, following for camping related needs. Having waterproof, securely closed pill organizers would be awesome.

Curling is done for the year. Lost our game today by 2 despite scoring a 6 end. Oh well, there's always next year

@rockmastermike Our championships go until the final games next Thursday and then the club shuts down for the summer I think

One of the Big Reports I lead was shouted out at an interdepartmental call for executives today, named as one of the three highest quality in government, out of more than 100.

@stephanie I find muscle twitches entertaining, but eyelid twitches can get annoying

#TuneTuesday "Talk" is an #Ottawa -area performer probably best known for his song "Run Away to Mars". On Sunday, he won the award for breakthrough artist of the year at the #Junos.

The song I like from him is "A Little Bit Happy".

Old, old souls
Don't know they're old
Until they're on the edge
Trying to process
The loss of old friends
Scars, old scars
I keep in jars
Collect them like a badge
Won't forget the past those
Old, old friends

I'm GenX and I have vague memories about "The Breakfast Club" and it not making much of an impression on me. I didn't relate to anyone in the movie and was mostly bored.

I've had a pretty bad cold for more than a week now, perfectly coinciding with a week where I actually had very enjoyable social things to do almost every day, which I usually have zero of in a given week, these days. I had to back out of every single one.

The worst part is that I have no idea where I got the cold, since I don't actually go out most of the time, except work (on a bike, then in a nearly-empty office) and errands (this time in a car, alone, to non-busy places). Ridic.

Nerdfest,
@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@casseagull Hope you feel better. It sucks to miss social stuff, especially visiting friends

I had to carry my old desktop PC, monitor, keyboard and mouse down to the living room this afternoon. Long story.

Anyway…. This doesn’t make me nostalgic for the old days of LAN parties. Lugging around heavy hardware sucks.

@shawnhooper The monitors are the big labour saver .... but now everyone brings at least a 27"

My 10 days of rest are officially over. I'm on vacation today so I can start again on Monday.

Do I feel better? Somewhat. Am I incredibly lucky to have been able to take two weeks off, paid? Most definitely.

I'm going back for about two weeks, then mini vacation for the eclipse and then a new assignment! I'm really hoping it will help me reset even more.

Nerdfest,

@stephanie Glad you feel somewhat better. My that went by quickly

Damn, my Pixel 7 Pro greeted me this morning with a boot loop. Probably from an update. I can get to the bootloader, but it boot loops even when trying Recovery or Repair mode. Guess it's time for a new phone. Good thing my PIxel 2 still works.

@Heinke It sucks immensely. Might be able to have it covered by my credit card warranty extension. Need to look into that.

I realize that, at some point, I won't be able to continue working. It'll be extended medical leave and medical retirement. Just don't know when that will be. It'll happen eventually.

So retiring young-ish. A new chapter. A new me?

I don't feel rowdy anymore, so there's no bucket list involving sky-diving or anything like that.

Maybe lawn bowling? Bingo? What do retired people even do?

I am unreasonably annoyed about a friend replacing their busted hot water heater with another traditional, wasteful tank-based hot water heater last week. That shouldn't even be possible anymore.

It was largely led by their (stubborn) partner, who tried to convince both of us that it was more eco-friendly to have it keep the water heated than have to blast gas to get it started all the time. Okay everyone and the gas co say no, but sure, yeah. You're right.

Nerdfest,
@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@casseagull Apparently they do make heat pump hot water heaters now

Type password in password box. Click login. Works.

For real... this system actually checks if you pasted the password and won't let you login if you do. Groan... (of course it's also a super complex password that expires every 90 days...)

@ShaunOttawa Can you maybe paste, then and and remove a character at the end?
