@Nerdfest @Artsandsocks It's been locked by CIRA so that only Sobeys can register it (if they want).

The viola.ca domain exists, though and redirects to an online gambling portal.

@samloonie @Artsandsocks I just checked to see if it was registered and it complained of illegal characters. I was under the impression that accents and alternate character sets were supported now

This is cute and honestly it’s the dream of power… but a/ no one is long charging their phone on a kitchen counter and more importantly b/ every decent phone has a camera bump like Mount Everest on the back and will not lie flat so you’d need an area with a lip like maybe a counter-bar or something. Still interesting.

@casseagull @Auxonic I actually saw that feature very recently. Hyundai maybe? Thought it was an awesome idea

Oh hey, some updates are out this morning.

Hopefully there was attention paid to the missing and components that have silenced my setup's various informative audio chimes.

If you were planning to go to Florida with your kids for spring break... may I recommend to make sure they're up to date on their measles vaccines? (and you too)

Or.. you know... cancel.

I always have to remember to add a /s when I am being sarcastic. I was told once that I have a very dry sense of humour IRL. I used to forget on line and got into trouble for that a lot!

@Dianora I've heard that certain folks online use the cactuc emoji to indicate sarcasm. It's the Sarcactus.

Doorbell rings. We're not expecting a package.

  1. Open first door. I see he's wearing a Bell jacket.

  2. Yell through the second door "No!".

  3. Close door.

I don't care what Bell is selling - if it's going to be attached to my house in any way, the answer is no.

@johnefrancis @human3500 That's what I'm considering doing

Does anyone know if gmail applies its spam filtering to email fetched via POP3? I can't find an answer anywhere... :/

Nerdfest,
@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@shawnp0wers They do with IMAP, if that's of any help. I have a server side filter that I needed to actively disable it, and it still puts stuff in spam on occasion.

@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@shawnp0wers @beckrd Gotcha. Sorry, no help here

I stopped my phone plan with Virgin today. They increased the price without even an email or text. With the amount of ads they sent me the phone plan should be free anyways. Even Disney+ at least told us they are increasing prices on Christmas day.
Lots of other companies have $15 a month plans. Any recommendations? I mostly use my phone as a walkie talkie with my partner

@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@Heinke I do a data only plan with Fido, and use Fongo for VOIP. 3GB/month for 17$. They may claim they're not allowed to sell a data plan without a voice plan and cancelled some people's plans though. I'm waiting for them to try that on me. We have laws forbidding tied selling

I love owning a house now it's like should we do preventative maintenance on (a million things) or should we put motorized blinds in to the family room for when we watch tv and films.

This also explains why all software is bad.

When we returned from vacation, we returned our home SIM cards to our phones, but DW's wasn't recognized by her phone.

Last night, we visited our cellular provider and they gave her a new SIM card, but it wasn't recognized either so we took her phone to the Apple Store.

After a full diagnostic, including putting her SIM in another phone (and it worked), they found nothing wrong. They suggested replacing the hardware in her phone.

Has this happened to anybody? Suggestions?

@BrownKnowser Yeah, I've stuck with the Nexus and Pixel phones for the last many years and all has been great. I only replace my phone like every 4-5 years as well. I think the two platforms are kind of getting more similar overall though.

Nerdfest,
@Nerdfest@mastodon.online avatar

@BrownKnowser I replaced my Pixel 2 with a Pixel Pro just because I got bored and wanted something a bit faster. Still runs great.
