So, I tried watching that Marie Kondo show with my wife. We watched about 10 minutes of it and just turned it off. Mostly because we were both chanting "THROW OUT YOUR SHIT" at the TV.
There might be good info in there somewhere, but it's buried deep in a non-stop horror show.
Kind of like if they brought in a super chipper aerobics instructor to give cardio advice to people in a slasher film.
Honestly, the whole "NPC" thing kinda cracks me up. Maybe because I'm old and remember the games it comes from.
Those guys aren't heroes. They're kobolds. They exist solely for the DM to show a new player how the system works and to gather up XP. (Plus, they've got a big enough ego that they think they're a Level 3 monster at least.)
The #GiletteAd is really simple, and uncontroversial: don't be shitty. Anyone with a strong negative reaction to it is to be regarded with deep suspicion.
At this point, I can say with great honesty: Don't go the "Smartthings" route.
Or do, but realize it's pretty much all-or-nothing. While it's theoretically possible to use Smartthings using a USB adapter, it's not super stable and kinda crap.
Stick with z-wave. It seems to just work a helluva lot better.
I need to come up with "personal goals" for work. I don't think they'll be happy with the one I normally have: "Remain employed for the next year".
I probably should do something about my paranoia and personal pessimism, but they're so warm and comforting. Like snuggling with a den of angry, rabid badgers.
Microsoft to reserve 7GB of drive space for updates, temp files, etc.
Not sure I'd even notice, to be honest. Granted, C: pretty much is the systems to do whatever with. Just like with unix, I don't store important stuff on the system drive. When the OS pukes, it doesn't take my stuff with it.
So, have at, redmond. Less crap files for me to clean up every month.
As a side note, it sure would be delightful if it were possible to port an install to a new disk without doing an unbelievable amount of reverse Jenga directory manipulation. I already always keep /home on it's own partition. (probably should do /var and /usr, but good lord there's a lot of system pollution that gets in those.)
I was talking with my wife about Christmas in current (Western) societies and now I have a question for you again! :)
Personally, do you
a) celebrate Christmas because you want to celebrate the birthday of your savior Jesus Christ that happened ~2k years ago?
b) participate in traditions linked to Christmas (tree, gifts, chocolate or similar) as a form of cultural practice?
c) neither celebrate Christmas nor participate in corresponding traditions?
Making life difficult for myself, one failed federation attempt at a time.
