Partly because my annual bonus came through over the weekend, I now have a number of items I'd like to have with me on my vacation (hopefully) arriving basically right before I leave.

This isn't exactly an ideal scenario, but at least it looks like everything should indeed be here before I leave.

Sitrep: I think the phlegm factory (sorry) is starting to shut down. Thank god, because that's been just miserable. My head and nose are still stuffy and my throat's still sore, but I think it's a bit less than before.

Of course, I still slept terribly and have little energy today.

Fingers crossed that I'm through the worst of this.

In case this ends up getting deleted, this is what I said in respose to a post in a Greymuzzles chat after the admin implied that they were deleting serious posts.

I doubt I'll be in this group for much longer.

@anthropy Years later it's still my favorite Trek series. If you haven't seen it, I can't recommend the document "What We Left Behind" highly enough either.

@anthropy I got to see one of the premieres in NYC and meet Ira Steven Behr (the showrunner for much of the series). It was pretty amazing.

I think I preferred last Valentine's Day.

The phrase "parental responsibility" may have just taken on new meaning.

I guess you can have it both ways...

Few things give me as much of an endorphin rush as hearing back from an artist/maker that something they don't have listed as being available is in fact available as a customization. There's just something fun to thinking that I'm being sneaky.

I just had a delightful and delightfully unexpected dinner with a couple of friends. Today was planned as a 'me-day', but I'm very glad I got off my ass and socialized.

I also learned (redacted), which was quite an honor!

Oh shit, this makes a terrifying amount of sense.

I don't understand why anyone would ask a roomful of strangers on Discord about buying a new laptop without already having something specific in mind, especially with a budget of $500. I'm not going to trust people I don't know at all to weigh in on something like that.

@xoagray @patterfloof Isn't the fact that most people aren't good with computers an even better argument for looking for reviews from reasonable publications rather than relying on a roomful of strangers who may in fact know as little about computers as you do?

@KinkTodd @xoagray @patterfloof I hope you know me well enough to know that I wouldn't have brought this up if the server in question had been one where I thought the person was likely to run into a number of subject matter experts...

Just being social with people doesn't make them not strangers, unless you're actually learning things -about- them.

And they were asking explicitly for laptop recommendations, not where to find laptop recommendations.

I'm less worried about people who will say they're not sure than I am about people who will provide bad advice out of ignorance.

@KinkTodd @xoagray @patterfloof If only there was some easy way that one could ask a question and be provided with a multitude of possible resources that could competently answer that quesiton...

I want to see someone set up an actual Telegram machine at a con that can convert signals to Telegram app messages.

@patterfloof I don't know what that is, so I'm going to say...sure!

If you're a 'content producer' who has a genuine interest in connecting with your patrons, it's really on you to personalize your interactions with them to convince them of that (which shouldn't be a big deal), and the worst thing you can possibly do is directly ask them to buy more of your content, which just commercializes your relationship.

@cy I'm not sure how one preludes the other?
