I am seriously so stressed out about family issues. My wife and her mom do not get along at all, and I am always stuck in the middle being the peacekeeper.

Their issues are so long-standing and deeply woven through their lives that I honestly cannot imagine a situation where this gets resolved.

I would just ignore it, but we rely on her mom for childcare and support for our son.

Neither one of them use this site so it felt like a safe place for this little rant.

Advice appreciated.

I love when I am having a morning poop and suddenly my phones color profile changes and I am like "op, sun just came out"

Been trying to decide today if I want to plant some Carolina reaper peppers and get wild with home made hot sauce this year.

This is one of the most insane emails I have ever gotten.

I have not had Esurance for over ten years. So I have no idea what this refund would be for. I no longer have the truck I owned back then nor do I live in the address they probably have on file for me.

So they are going to mail me 27 cents.

It is going to cost them more in postage to send it, and it will never reach me.

The only monarch I want to see in the 21st century has two sets of wings and pollinates plants like nobody’s business.

I was finally able to get my first Covid Vaccine scheduled for later this week.

Not a moment too soon as the virus rips through my state (Michigan) and had already infected my home twice.

FSF bullshit 

The fact the FSF is doubling down on RMS and effectively saying "we need him" is telling. It means they have a cult that can't survive without him, not a sustainable and vibrant organisation.

One day, RMS is going to die. This isn't an ominous threat or something, it's just what happens to everyone eventually. It could be tomorrow, or it could be 40 years from now. Realistically, the guy is 68. He is probably going to die within most of our lifetimes.

If the FSF cannot survive without RMS, then the FSF has no long-term future, by this simple fact alone. Not that open source or FOSS needs the FSF. It will survive with or without them, and continue with or without them.

If people can't accept that, then that's just too bad.


I had experimented heavily with LSD in the past and honestly I found the mental benefits to be substantial and permanent.


Another beautiful spring morning 😊🌳🌞

I love waking up to watch the sunrise.

I had been using Brave browser for a while and never thought much about the basic attention tokens.

Today I realized I can cash them out to my own bank.

Thank you free $60.

Does anyone have any suggestions for software to repair drive errors on a large USB backup drive?

I have used Spinrite in the past but wondering if there is anything more modern or better that is available at a consumer level.
