Water Cooler / Apple Vision Pro

I have to say this could be ground breaking for people with disabilities to be able to navigate with their eyes. But why do the goggles have to be so huge? Also...it's corded?

Water Cooler / CORRECT Prediction of computers from the 1970s.
« on: November 15, 2023, 04:06:14 PM »
It’s kinda spooky how accurate this is. (And as for the small robot prediction, I love my automatic catbox and roomba.)

Traffic / NextDoor: Anyone have experience with it?
« on: August 22, 2023, 03:09:49 PM »
I know next to nothing about it.  I'm trying to learn as much as I can for a client who wants to advertise on it.  Is it worth it?  Does it convert?  Are there ways to optimize for it?

Thanks in advance.

We’ve known this for a long time, but it’s interesting to see a mainstream (and trusted) news source explaining it to the masses.  She explains it beautifully.

Angry content makes money.  There are several YouTube videos on this interview.

The joke was if you wanted to see where the next conflict in the world was going to be, you just had to go 2 years in the past and see where FaceBook expanded to.

We had golf ball sized hail just south of here.  Lightening like I've never seen, tornado sirens went off twice yesterday. And, 30 miles away, they had softball sized hail.

Trying to post an image of the hail, but can't...*sighs*

It is rather long, but they did get quite a few things right:  giant televisions and computers being used in the home.

They missed the boat on a 30 hour workweek and a month of vacation being the norm in the US.  (And the LOUD teletype machine in the kitchen just kills me. ;D )

Water Cooler / My latest project -- just for fun.
« on: January 04, 2021, 10:03:26 PM »
I dug my Great Grandmother's Singer out of the basement.  It was built in 1892 and purrs along like it was just made.  The last two years has just been grueling, and I just needed something fun to take my mind off it.

I tried to make a video that didn't suck and might even get watched to the end.  That's tough to do with a sewing video.  Be brutally honest.

Water Cooler / There is a hotline for people to scream and hang up
« on: December 27, 2020, 04:05:14 AM »
And, they put the screams on their website.

It’s genius. I wish I thought of it.

Hardware & Technology / What is the best cloud system for personal use?
« on: December 12, 2019, 10:11:22 PM »
I've got to update my home computer system and am looking to put most of my files in cloud storage. 

What is the most stable and cost-effective cloud system out there?

Super good write up.

n the last view years, a few online marketing companies figured out how to game Google’s Algorithm by putting unrelated content on trusted domains, mostly from newspapers, and make millions in profit. The main players are Global Savings Group (formerly CupoNation), a startup from Rocket Internet (of Samwer brothers’ fame) and Savings United, also company from Germany. These two as well as a coterie of about 20 smaller companies run more than 80 white label voucher code sites for the likes of The Daily Mail, Le Monde, El País, and BILD in more than 17 countries — the US, for a curious reason to be discussed below, not being one of them.

Water Cooler / One year in San Francisco as a Software Engineer
« on: January 08, 2019, 03:57:47 PM »
I've become much less bitter about California.  I won't live there again.  I endured it for 2 years and 16 days, and that's enough for me.

This guy's story reminded me why I'll never go back.

It was fun because I could afford it and because I was part of the class that benefited from the system. I can’t help wondering though that the only reason Silicon Valley and the Bay Area has been so prosperous is because it’s in a country where generally people are comfortable with having so much wealth, while having so many people live under the poverty line.
