*whew* In the obvious place and I could just copy the whole folder over and it works.

There's 20 hours of work in those templates, maybe more.

eek LibreOffice had an update AND IT'S DESTROYED ALL MY TEMPLATES

(I think I've got a backup but I'm not sure where I put it)

@dantebrevity It could be, yes, but it's in fact about birdsite's new "topics of interest" thing.

Suppose you've made a thing and released into the wild. You thought it would be used in x way, but you find that most people are using it in y way instead. What do you do?

- Say "hey cool, show me how you're using it so we can all learn from each other"?

- Throw a tantrum and change your thing so it can only be used in x way? Every effing time it happens?

(yes, this is a subtoot)

Sorry for ranting. Last straw and all. (And anyone who joins a dogpile on me will get blocked; reported if they're abusive about it)

Note that I'm not trying to virtue-signal, only to say I'm not going to take the whole responsibility for something that is too large for individuals to take responsibility for. I'm already doing little reasonable things; being extreme in that on my own (like becoming vegan the whole year instead of about half the year per Orthodox fasting rules) won't help *more*.

Goes in the drawer with "have no more than 2 children" (how? my #2 and #3 are twins) and "don't use the car for short trips" (what car?)

Dear news people, individual households aren't the problem.

News article says "we" have to use less water. Tip: shower 1 minute shorter. If I do that I'll barely get wet. (They say the average shower is 8.5 minutes! Mine are about 2 minutes.)

health (~), alcohol mention

Intensive game session last night, then rather a lot of good whisky until very late. I'm a bit brittle now. Still not sure if I can swim (beneficial though that might be) because hand and knee feel mostly healed but still hurt at the wrong movements. Especially right ring finger which will of course have to push through water at every stroke.

@zeborah @selcaby That proves that I don't use my phone enough -- never thought of the voicemail message. That might be the best solution, except that it will make me have to LISTEN TO MY RECORDED VOICE BRRR. Thanks!

@ArntRJohansen I have a prepaid phone (precisely because I don't make a lot of calls). I think I'll have to do it by hand, per number.

It's not that I'm incapable of answering the phone. I just hate to be startled by the blasted thing going off and I dislike talking on the phone because I'm always flustered and afraid of saying the wrong thing because (a) I've been startled already so I'm unstable and (b) I don't get time to think.

I wish I could leave a message saying "This phone does not accept voice calls. Please text or email me at email@address.tld."

Everyone's sharing the close-up image of the black hole itself, which is neat, but here is a zoomed-out view of the gigantic mass of space-stuff that it is busily consuming: chandra.harvard.edu/blog/node/

meta thoughts, ads

It's so subtle, but do you notice how few people here talk about "the latest thing" on mastodon? Whether that's movies or events or news...

When you take the ads away from folks, they don't talk as much about what the corporations want them to be talking about.

Instead they talk about their lives. Their loves. Their interests. Their dreams.

Hmm.
