Went flying today. There was some IMC. But it was 35miles from where I was.
had a sandwich.
oh, do tell!
Drank a New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Imperial IPA this evening. It could have been colder, but it was still pretty tasty. Possibly may have definitely opened a second just now.
I'm not wearing pants...
Noted the irony of one "Management Council Member" participating in a thread contrary to some unwritten "instructions" only to see that thread locked by another "Management Council Member" a few minutes later for violations of the same unwritten "instructions".
I watched idiots get a comedy thread closed over stupid crap. LOL
Agghhh!!! They done done in memes. Friday is joke day is the last stand
I asked my doctor if I have to make a appointment for the flewed shot before winter.
He said it might make me a flight risk...
It’s too bad the software doesn’t have a way to simply kick offenders from a specific thread on a thread by thread basis. Corporal punishment of the happy people is seriously lame.
I do like my tools better over at FB. More options to deal with 14,000 people and a real phone app I can multitask it with, while sitting on the can if I like. LOL.
I truly feel bad for anybody that regularly has to use the web interface here. Mods included. Got a couple of 4K monitors recently. Never seen so much wasted screen real estate for so little text. Haha.
Poor old clunky web forum software... slow development, weak features, dying on the vine...
FB public posts is a dumpster fire, but groups public and private, private being the best, I got a lot of really useful mod tools and a good mobile UI to drive them. Incredibly fun features that make more sense than locking the happy people out of fun things.
This is my view of this place 99% of the time. Nice native font, no frilly web CSS junk, embedded images work... t’is proper discussion forum screen asthetics. Just the words, ma’am!
“.....Facebook public posts is a dumpster fire....” Fire??? that’s an understatement
I miss the usenet client I used. Better interface than the web forums, and waaaaaaaaay before controls for dealing with trolls and such.
I’m still on a mailing list that was a spin-off of an Usenet news group. Younguns come along and want it to be a forum, but we old phartes keep it like it is.
Oh wait, I am not wearing pants as well.....
electronic targets can be really useful...
I don’t remember any other controls other than “leave group” or “block user” in any client I used. That and the down arrow to skip.
What did yours have?
USENET ops could do some stuff like cut off a whole server from the backbone, but that was quite rare.
the client filters could be configured to ignore posts from certain people (e.g., trolls and posters-who-shall-not-be-named) and also ignore posts that were replies to said people (or even portions of threads with any reply to the troll, but I didn't usually use that severe a filter). The filters could be active upon opening a group... so I might see that a group had, say, 104 unread posts, but after opening the group, a certain number of posts would be effectively deleted (I guess, technically, marked Read)
It was also sometimes handy to "unread" a post.
but the filter capability is what I miss most.
Great stuff here.
Even better stuff here:
No need for creams, powders, pastes, etc... 31 hours straight in the saddle on a motorcycle with nothing between me and my crash pants but the tights with zero rash at the end. Well worth the price.
2 things.........1) I just saw the aftermath of a nasty accident. suv flipped over on it's roof. 2) I just read part of a post and the only only thing I saw was 'buttpaste'. have no idea what the post was about but laughed at buttpaste.
I don't believe I want to know what buttpaste is.
And it's particularly humorous when a mod is actively participating in the debate that gets a thread locked.
Happens often around here...
Sigh...last time I countered an illogical statement, a perfectly good thread was locked. Guess there's no point in doing so. Had clams in red sauce over homemade fettucini for dinner and a magnum of chianti is currently being defeated with the help of my beautiful wife. Life is good. Now THERE'S a thread!
Gave seven hours of complex dual of Friday. No masks were worn.
I thought I had a real money maker during the TP shortage of 2020....
Bought my wife a bidet attachment for our toilet as a covid joke for our anniversary (don't worry, I did nice things for her too). Turns out, it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.....
I hope you are not slicing bread with it....
If you turn up the pressure high enough, you probably could. I made that mistake..............once.
I've always been afraid it is a rather cold surprise. No?
My wife and I are looking to buy a new house and really liked one, but all the toilets had bidet attachments. That didn't alone didn't kill our interest, but there was a "do you think we have to replace all the toilets?" conversation.
My plane was in the shop at KPAH a few weeks ago. 1-1/2 hour drive from our house. Our home airport KUCY is 30 minutes away. My wife was fussing we had no plane and couldn’t fly anywhere for lunch one Sunday.
I suggested we drive to KPAH and get the plane out since it was still air worthy and fly back to KUCY for lunch. She wasn’t impressed with my idea
Not worthy of it's own thread? That is its own thread!
I bought a model with a heater for that reason. Specifically it does it "tankless" style, so it can never run out of warm water.
Why would you remove toilets from a home just because they had a bidet? Were they some form of mandatory bidet?
The Blackstone oil analysis container that you mail to them won't fit into the slot of the mailbox outside (some) post offices.
interesting... got a message "you don't have permission to perform that action" when trying to reply to a post...I guess it got deleted after I read it but before I replied...
I sneezed while I was pooping. Used toilet paper to blow my nose...well, toilet paper was used, but the toilet paper was not used. At least before I used it to blow my nose. Then I threw it in the toilet with the used toilet paper...although by the time I threw it in the toilet, it was used as well.
I flushed, I washed my hands (with soap, for 30 seconds so I don’t catch COVID from the toilet paper), and I am now wearing pants.
BTW once you develop the correct callouses and aiming skills, there is a comfort and assuredness that only comes with the forceful salad shooter option.
Did you do the Iron Butt??
I thought the “salad shooter option” meant I had too much fiber in my diet.
That sounds like hell to me. About 3 hours at a time is all my back,neck and or butt can take on my bike.
