price change sent to me yesterday. Current annual price of $109 vs 2024 price of $139! Yeah, no! ESPECIALLY not when they pre-announce limiting TV show and movie production of properties!

Not keeping it! Even if I do love and !!!

And NO! NOT doing ad-tier!! 🤬

I’m leading a three hour workshop for a client in person. The company is very casual.

My instinct is to wear a suit, but they’re so casual, I worry it could come off weird.

I could do business casual.

I don’t know. Opinions welcome.

@Moltz @lexfri Hey Moltz! Be careful! This may give Lex the idea to don his Eagles suit! 😳

Overheard conversation today at gas station:

Uber rideshare driver [on his phone]: "I can't figure out why tips are so bad!"

Uber driver is dressed in oversized tee shirt down past hips, dirty jogging pants - hanging down in rear showing buttocks, flip-flops, and sweaty baseball hat - backwards on head. Driving Toyota Corolla with spotted stretch fabric seat covers and filthy windows and paint.

Gee, I don't know either, dude! My last fare's tip was almost 80% of the fare! 😳

Dumb question, but if I bought one of those "MagSafe stickers" on Amazon, that are traditionally used to give an Android phone MagSafe-like-stickiness, could I instead use it in reverse, and stick it to a non-MagSafe accessory so it would stick to my iPhone?

For instance, say I want to stick it to a banana so the banana magnets to my phone

Not going to lie: lately I’ve been wondering if any of my work—podcasting, books, tech writing—is really reaching people. But it’s all worth it on those days when some random listener sends an email out of the blue to tell me just how much I’ve affected them.

@dmoren I really do have to say I agree with this... To people who don't use that word as a "conjunction" or as a "pause word", it is irritating in the extreme. I know you posted this toot as sarcasm or snide, etc. but it really is irritating to some of us who really like to listen to you for your views.

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@dmoren Jumping to the word "policing" is overkill for this. I am not asking you to stop nor am I saying it is wrong. All I was saying is the usage of that word so much bothers some people.

I listen because I like what you have to say. I was just adding a comment to your post. Sorry if you took offense at my wording.

“She booked an Uber from home to take her to the Verizon store in town last Sunday, noting in her profile that she could not see “

This is horrible but to be fair, at NO TIME can a driver see ANYTHING a user puts in their profile! Nothing!

Okay, my lovely computer programmers... IF I want to play around with LLMs by loading everything I've ever written in one to train it - but NOT giving it anymore knowledge than that - what is my best hope to begin playing with it on macOS?

I'm tots comfortable with command line and programming.

@HilliTech I know that you are "iPad guy" but I - for one - use an iPad for what it is ... a consumption device.

While I agree, the minute they add "pro" onto the name and ship Final Cut for it (etc), they go into a diff promise relationship with the user, it does not mean they promise it will be a Mac - or indeed any other desktop. Just that it CAN do many of those things.

And I think it can. So that's where we differ.

@jann@twit.social avatar

Okay, #Godzilla fans... should you wait to watch #GodzillaxKong until AFTER S02 of #MonarchLegacy comes out? People tell me I need to see Monarch: Legacy of Monsters first, but should I wait to see Godzilla x Kong till after?

Stupid question, I know but they're seriously telling me to wait!

@peteyjlawson thx. Watched #Godzilla2014 last night. Trying to do ‘em all in order.

jann,
@jann@twit.social avatar

@peteyjlawson Thanks! I actually did enjoy Godzilla 2014... it was SO WEIRD to see Elizabeth Olsen so long before her stint as Scarlet Witch in Marvel! I kept screaming at the screen, just HEX THEM already, Wanda! 😂

ps: It really cost me a LOT to ignore all the plot holes in this movie...but I did my best to enjoy it. Godzilla without plot holes is just impossible!
