    I don't feel comfortable getting any closer...

    I've been hanging out on some EDC groups on facebook, got sick of the nonsense and the ads for $5 AliExpress lights that "Should be banned because they're military grade and too bright for normal people to own" being sold for $120

    This sounds like FUD to me.

    With proper passwords (not words or random numbers, but phrases and sentences!), 2-stage authentication (which Facebook does offer, and EVERYONE should use it) and I'm assuming that your IT guys operate and maintain a decent firewall, and you have a good (read: not Norton, McAfee or Trend) AV app on your system, the odds of you coming a cropper are as minimal as possible.

    I've just been reading back through that thread you quoted me from. All the stuff I said I used with no issues I've now quit. Not from any security issues, but just being sick of the crap. Glad to be free of it, though. Now I just waste my time on Reddit, and probably here - again.

    In a post-Snowden world, 127.0.0.1's OP reads very differently than it did back then.

    Also, I killed that thread

    Geez, Pops. It's as though you killed the two threads. How many times have you checked them since posting?

    Hi-ya, Pops. Long time no read. A bunch of us gave her a jump-start back in February.

    Glad to see you on the screen. How's you pup?

    He's doing OK, thanks C.G.! Don't wanna jinx anything, but we're gonna be together 8 loooooooooooong years, come July. ..

    The boy's getting up there in age though. Presently, he's taking enough pills, and vitamins a day. That'll give any senior citizen a run for their money. That's for certain. Here's a few photos;

    Getting his weekly bath; ... Looking sad, and I'm doing ALL the work!






    Styling in his hand knit organic (whatever that means) wool sweater;




    His RuffWear rain jacket (for the monsoon season);




    And his ankle braces, sheez; First one is a custom brace, made to his measurements. He like it, cause it makes him feel like Flash Gordon, with the wings on'um. Only problem is, there's only wings on one leg, so he runs is a big circle. .... ;




    And Heaven forbid, an off the rack brace;




    Lastly, to earn his keep. He's still getting used as a table, from time to time;




    Yeah, Praise the Man Upstairs. He's hanging in there! He is getting really grey though, huh, C.G.?

    Pops


    BTW, sorry you asked? ...

    A new golden age of TV?

    Go see the first episode of American Gods; a Neil Gaiman illustrated-graphic-esque tale screaming and exploding through your television..



    then see the first episode of A Handmaid's Tale; horror isn't monsters or blood, it's reality..

    Honestly S.H., Reality is horrific enough without seeing a portrayal of it in film and TV.

    But this particular telling was published in forty countries and is considered part of the modern literary canon alongside 1984 and Brave New World

    In that case, I might get the book. I generally hate seeing good books get butchered on screen.

    tab665,

    Do you still own Epic Epicness? I'm still waiting for a picture of it next to a 6P for size comparison.

    Only a tiny fraction of subtitled movies get it right. 99% of the time, if a character wears a white T-shirt, you're screwed. Grey box on the bottom with white text in it. How hard is that?! Apparently too hard!
