Ever purchase something again because you swear you lost it and you swear you looked everywhere 5 times?

… only to buy it again and find the original a short time later?!

.. … that’s happened to me TWICE in the last month.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

@britt Going to buy a new one is absolutely guaranteed to make the lost one suddenly return from Narnia. 😛

Stack Overflow announced that they are partnering with OpenAI, so I tried to delete my highest-rated answers.

Stack Overflow does not let you delete questions that have accepted answers and many upvotes because it would remove knowledge from the community.

So instead I changed my highest-rated answers to a protest message.

Within an hour mods had changed the questions back and suspended my account for 7 days.

Diff view of a stack overflow question showing it being changed from the original text to a protest message, then being changed back again by a mod. Protest text reads: Why does OpenAI get to profit from our work? I have removed this question in protest of Stack Overflow's decision to partner with OpenAI. This move steals the labour of everyone who contributed to Stack Overflow with no way to opt-out. OpenAI has a history of flooding the web with inaccurate information and have explicitly stated that they will never pay creators for their work.

Back on my bullshit lately. ;-) Got the crossover armor for 3 of my alts now, plus been leveling reaper on one of them, also debating using the fact that you can use duty/trust companions for the entire leveling experience to open up healing jobs I'm not as comfortable with.

@mrpablington @Azurakumo Tried Hard mode on but it just doesn't work for me. So back to normal to try out the other classes and get a few more Steam accomplishments.

Then I'm not sure. I should check on my alts to get them ready for the big crossover event, my alts for the Spring Festival stuff, and maybe just throw a dart at my Steam catalog and install something at random.

2.5/5 to "White Sand, volume 1" by Brandon Sanderson. A free borrow on Hoopla.

Interesting enough. The art is meh, but I can live with it.

@jlsigman@mstdn.games avatar

@nitpicking To be honest, I have no idea. I'm guessing it's the second version, since the intro talks about him writing the book but never getting it published, then the publisher saying, "Hey, got anything you haven't already sold to someone else yet?"

There's some good ideas in there, under the flat art. I'd be willing to read it as a novel at some point.

jlsigman,
@jlsigman@mstdn.games avatar

@nitpicking LMAO I'll have to go back through and see if I missed it.

I'm not surprised he's wanting a re-do. I know I'm harping on it, but the art is doing his story no favors.

@StillIRise1963 I remember when I moved Mom from the "retirement village" and into my home. She'd been getting sicker and sicker because they were feeding her garbage. In 6 months I had her A1Cs back under 7 and her weight under 200 pounds for the first time in 20 years. It's hard work sometimes, and I often have to kick my own ass to do it, but it's so worth it.

Via Emptywheel:

This is actually an interesting detail ... of 's deposition. Abbe Lowell has done this publicly, but this is a fairly direct allegation abt a former Lowell client:

"Hunter raised foreign investments received by ’s son-in-law, Jared , as Repubs quizzed him on his own biz deals..Rep. Moskowitz said that some Repubs nodded or audibly responded in the affirmative when Hunter Biden asked if they had a problem w those investments." https://www.politico.com/newsletters/inside-congress/2024/02/28/3-big-factors-that-will-shape-the-mcconnell-succession-00143971

@GottaLaff Oh that's a first. Usually it's deflect and change the subject when Jared comes up. Trump will be flinging ketchup when he hears this.

I'm still not up to Black History! I'm still working through white US history. Bear with me! Almost there!

Q: Why does it seem like everything has to be woke now? Even our scientists?! It never used to be that way! Why does it seem like these days, even higher education has to think about race, when it didn't before?

A: Higher education, including STEM, did think about race before. That history has just been hidden from you. Because racism.
