Any experts on here that could answer me a question?

Is there a way to bulk move a bunch of entries from one category to another ?

I can't help but sigh, in 2024, when organizations still fail to prepare for an onslaught of traffic to their websites. It is, generally, avoidable, if you see it coming.

Every time I'm forced to use Chrome, I find it so so slow compared to Firefox.

@phaedral I'm on those daily for work in Firefox, and they work quite well.

Haven't compared to the Chrome experience.

@phaedral I've heard that before too, I just don't find it to be my personal experience.

@Dianora St. Albert, just east of Ottawa.

I got here about 30 minutes after they packaged today’s curds. So fresh, so squeaky. 🤤

@alda Any reason in particular? I've been mostly offline this week - wondering if I missed something in the news.

Nirvana have paid tribute to Steve Albini by sharing the four-page letter he sent the band before agreeing to record their beloved final studio album, In Utero. Albini passed away at the age of 61.

Aww man, Steve Albini, audio engineer and owner of Electrical Audio died yesterday.

Two of my favourite albums he was engineer for:

  • In Utero by Nirvana
  • Razorblade Suitcase by Bush X

Dear conference hotel - A Bose sound bar is not a "professional sound system".

Follow up: Rented speakers from local AV shop. Told the venue to take back their sound bar.

Then a few minutes ago, I walked by an open door near the banquet room - full of gear. Speakers, wireless mics, mixers. Exactly what I was told they had in planning emails. I’d say the employee helping us set up didn’t know that existed, except the sound bar was sitting right there.

I’m so annoyed. All worked out fine in the end but the frustration and running around to make it happen was a pain!

Beautiful beautiful starry night out in these parts.

So glad we moved out of the city.

Just saw a shooting star, or something burning up in the atmosphere.

Go outside. Look up.
