Cooking question:

Just found out about these "electric wood pellet" grills. I have ptsd from fire so propane is out, even charcoal I'm a bit iffy on, this seems like a nice balance of taste, grill marks (oddly important), and ease...I hope?

Never heard of 'em before so I have no idea if there are gotchas

anyone got MtF voice training tips? I think I've got a pretty decent vocal range from streaming but not too many lean femme and I don't get a lot of opportunity to practice. Mostly just talk to my google assistant with it when I'm at home

@SirTapTap Reach out to my gal @Dzovinar she may have some info. I also remember @tillybridges talking about vocal training a year or so ago

I think everyone should play a fair amount of DOS games as-designed just to help instill how extremely not-obvious "common sense" game design, controls, etc were

There are shockingly few DOS games with even slightly reasonable controls. Like, ijkl is one of the better ones. One of my favs is M for right and Z for left.

@SirTapTap the system shock control schemes are next level wtf

Kid has his school account hacked. The person who did it has been caught and is up for expulsion. What a nightmare

@SirTapTap only reason I think anything is being done is because the dipshit used the account to send evil shit to teachers

hey this looks like a very cool initiative so i’m sharing…
Object Oriented Orgasm Hackathon:
https://www.ooohack.fun
“Over the course of 3 days, the OOOHack cohort of 20 artists, technologists, sex advocates, and more will explore the modes of pursuing pleasure when we privilege play and safety, and how this pleasure can show up in our art, work, and society.”

Sabotaging AI models by feeding them crap seems punk as fuck and like something @pluralistic would get behind

@pluralistic i certainly applaud the research. Was a photographer and artist in my younger days and not a fan of AI and it's copytheft sources being used to replace artists

I feel like a grandma but I bought a clear tablecloth for my tablecloth because the Pokemon tableclothes are not remotely washable.

IDK if I can even iron them, but I have a damanaged one I can test it on I guess. They sent a replacement at least. Going to be more careful with the Halloween one

@SirTapTap we have them for our table because we have a 10yo who watches YouTube while eating and gets food everywhere and a senior citizen who has the shakes and gets about 79% where it goes

I guess I hadn't connected "why is my sleep extra bad this week" with "I just heard my cat most likely has cancer" just after work Monday. guess that's probably it

Every MBA's entire education:

"Past performance is..."

(the MBA has a brief stroke, remembering nothing of what was said)

"...guarantee of future results"

See Epic et al.

@SirTapTap as an MBA I find this both offensive and true

Napkin thoughts? I bought some acceptable quality napkins but they no longer match most of my kitchen

Any brands or fabrics I should look for? Gonna get something that matches kitchenaid's Aqua Sky as close as possible.

@SirTapTap search Amazon for "heavy duty vinyl" and look for flannel backed ones
