Fun way to keep chipmunks from shimmying up poles holding bird feeders - Vaseline. Also the hardest I've laughed in ages.

@ai6yr are they going to give away the EVs and proper charging? Because until they do EVs are a no-go. Plenty of left-wing folks not made of money either.

So I uploaded the text for the last post on my blog to Gemini and asked for it to help me refine it. The original title was: Saving stuff for "later"

The Gemini title made me chuckle:

Title: The Digital Graveyard: Why "Save for Later" Doesn't Work (For Me)

I like how it added the "(For Me)" part. Definitely shows how everyone has to couch everything in "for me" when writing these days even when its clear they're talking only about themselves.

I do like the rest of the title tho.

So I really wanted to like Glass when I resubscribed several months ago but it’s just not doing anything for me. Nothing wrong with the service but I’m just not getting the need to post to it.

tl;dr - I won’t be subscribing again 😂

Always remember, we are all entitled to our own opinions and we all get to choose what we use as far as software, hardware or anything else in this world. Just because YOU don't like something doesn't mean everyone else should not like it as well.

If you continually try and shove your opinion down my throat and try to force me to change what I use, I will simply block you and move on.

It's not appropriate, nor is it wanted or needed. It's actually quite DISRESPECTFUL!

@cliffwade yeah it’s amazing to me how attached people get to stuff (me included). They’re all just tools and we should be happy for the many choices available!

Just wanted to step in here for a second and say I am still "on break" here but since I am cross-posting from status.lol I am checking here for any responses I might get for those posts and will respond via DM. Hope everyone is doing well!

Here’s the thing, when the DoJ goes after companies for things other than monopolies, it can often win. Apple did break the law when it tried to do price fixing for ebooks. It straight up did that. It also colluded with other big tech companies to depress salaries. Those settlements made sense b/c like, yeah, those laws were clearly broken. But without seeing the full docs, being mad that Apple has private APIs it hoarded for itself is such a weird thing to spend 5 years investigating.

jasonekratz,
@jasonekratz@social.lol avatar

@film_girl I'd argue that the ebook case has FAR more nuance than any of this other stuff. Especially given that the whole point was because at the time Amazon controlled like 90% of the ebook market.

jasonekratz,
@jasonekratz@social.lol avatar

@film_girl @chrisfinazzo the big 6 wouldn’t have agreed if it wasn't in their best interest. and they did...those pricing tiers went into effect and the net effect was higher prices on books. the agency model that Apple wanted was better for the publishers and better for Apple. Seems like it was better for Amazon too since they couldn't use eBooks as loss leaders anymore.

I thought the last time the DoJ sued the largest American tech company over monopolistic practices it was dumb. I think it’s dumb this time too. But I cannot lie, I live for the drama.

@film_girl the charges are ridiculous. "super apps”? They better charge Microsoft too since I might want to switch computing platform too.

I am a huge fan of Dick Bruna and his Miffy books. I love his design style and use of bright, cheerful colours and bold lines.

These illustrations of my work space and the things I surround myself with is my tribute to Dick Bruna.

Everybody admits had no support and did well with what he was given. That he handled it in the media better than anybody could expect. His teammates loved him. And now just as the were surrounding him with talent, they trade him for an unknown quantity. And we only have this top pick because last year's top sure thing QB didn't turn out that way. I don't fucking get it.

@wjmaggos it’s the Bears. This is the team that passed on Patrick Mahomes for Trubisky. They could have also had CJ Stroud.

On Donald Trump I heard someone say: "You're trying to solve a political problem with the judiciary, and it's not going to work"
I've not seen a more apt description of the problem. As long as a large swath of the population unwaveringly support him, the courts will always be influenced to treat him with utmost leniency. That's why I've never gotten celebrating every ruling against him. They will never enforce punitive measures against the man until he's defeated politically.

jasonekratz,
@jasonekratz@social.lol avatar

@mike that suggests nobody should bother trying to finally hold that mother fucker to account which is ridiculous. “The judiciary” mostly has NOT treated him leniently. And millions of dollars is pretty punitive. 😂 Will they throw him in jail? Of course not. Bit of a logistics nightmare.

My wife received an email from QVC for a purse that said “you’ll love this bag, long time”. Followed later by the required apology. Anyone of a certain age will know that bit from Full Metal Jacket. Still can’t believe they sent that out.

That was quite a speech tonight from Biden. Most definitely not the usual SotU. Clearly on his game. The folks saying he’s senile can go to hell. Twitter has gotta be something else tonight with the far-right mouth breathers
