[Rant] Cloud service is not a reason to have phones with only 128 GB

I am in the process of looking between repairing my phone or switching to a new one. And the no brainer evolution to the OnePlus 7 Pro I have is a Pixel phone. Pixel Phones are definitely not perfect, I know that the battery would fall faster than other phones but hey, that’s ok, google chip in it, possibility to go...

The pronoun "they" has been used to refer to the singular since the beginning of time (or since it started being used in middle and modern English anyhoo). Love, someone with an MA in English Language.

That's a lovely tomato and mozzarella salad. Caprese never has balsamic. The trick is to find good tomatoes. And use lots of Evoo.

It's a total pain to have to go into the community, scroll all the way down, and then get an error message when you click the block icon. Or a login screen. It should be possible to block communities from the front page.

Half the country didn't vote for this and about 3.5 million EU citizens living in the UK weren't allowed to vote (which was against EU regulations but nobody seems to care). So quit the "they asked for it" bullshit.

They didn't.

What? There was only one referendum. What on Earth are you on about. You mean the undemocratically elected parliament?

The point of being an admin is that you can edit and change everything that is posted. If someone does something illegal on your instance, or they're posting stuff you don't like (racism, homophobia, etc) you need to be able to fix it.

Admins have always been able to modify posts. See Reddit, forums, etc.

350k is considered expensive in the US? Oh dear. Love, Europe.

$2 to cut a sandwich in half: The outrageous rip-offs targeting tourists in Italy (www.cnn.com)

An Italian holiday may be a priceless experience for those who have enjoyed all this country has to offer. But the summer of 2023 will go down as one of the priciest in history after a slew of price gouging scandals at cafes and restaurants that have affected foreign tourists and Italians alike.

Mate, even the Italian prime minister, who has a farmhouse in Puglia, has gone abroad for her vacation.

Because you can't afford to go to Italy?

I mean, technically, calling them tankies is wrong. They're not tankies, they're right wing as fuck.

starlinguk,

Yes. They're right wing. Don't believe them when they say they're left wing. They're not.

Das musst natürlich saniert werden und das kostet etwas.

My shit started about two months after having Covid. Longgg before I got vaccinated. I think some people think it's the vaccine because problems don't tend to start right away when you have covid. It takes a while.

You don't need to change masks after one wear, unless you work in a medical setting.

starlinguk,

It doesn't stop working because you wear it. Why should it? Have some masks on rotation and leave the ones you aren't wearing in the sun or in a UV-C decontamination box.

We're all over masks. But we're still wearing them because we're not idiots.

Shame the latest booster was the wrong one.

What?

starlinguk,

Yes. It's not fucking hard.

At least 15 percent of people end up with long covid. And that's the ones who go to the doctor with it. Last Christmas everyone I talked to "didn't have long covid, but..." They could no longer do anything without getting out of breath. Or they kept forgetting things. Or they could only clean the house for 10 minutes when they used to be able to clean all day.

And then there's the diabetes, autoimmune disease, heart disease, dementia... All things you can end up with thanks to covid. And none of this is rare.

The vaccines are still free in many countries. PS the latest booster vaccinated against the wrong variant.
