    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    The ladder I want comes in 3 performance/feature grades, which are also price grades. The lowest spec and lowest price comes in a 6ft version, and an 8ft version. But I need their 7ft ladder which, of course, is only available in their most-expensive grade at almost double the price. The 6ft is...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Thanks! Last week, it was 37 here and 94 back home where my parents live in Wisconsin. This week, it's 42/75. Cases are going up here, so that makes sense. This week, my county just jumped into the most severe color on their color-coding system, purple. It was one of the last two bay area...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Can you post a link to this? I know I've seen it before, but can't seem to re-find it. My google-fu is failing.

    What's your latest [non-technology] purchase?

    After a weekend struggling trying to make some hexagon-shaped wood frames, after 5 years of fighting with my Kreg miter gauge, I ordered the Incra I should have bought in the first place, thinking I was saving money. The issues with the Kreg: 1. The Kreg uses these tiny plastic set screws to...

    "I pray to God every day that he save this nation, with the RIGHT man in the white house!" "Biden wins!" "...wait, what?" But the way I see it, as long as Trump is still actively fighting against the results of the election, he and those who continue to support his efforts deserve any...

    The Biden Years

    I don't. I liked Jason Sedekis's much better. As much as I generally dislike Maya Rudolph, though, I think she's great for Kamala. I'm just glad we're (hopefully) done with Alec Baldwin's trump. That wore pretty thin. I'm curious who Kate McKinnon will be playing in the new administration. No...

    US Thanksgiving Meals 2020

    There's no duxelles or ham of any sort, so I'm not gonna call it that. ;) Side note: I do also have a beef version with the mushrooms, so that's closer. :) I'm not expecting this one to be as successful as the turkey, though.

    Amusingly, on my (android) I phone, audio through my Bluetooth earphones is so quiet when watching a video from a Chrome tab, that I downloaded a volume-increaser app. How screwed up is that?

    US Thanksgiving Meals 2020

    It's just the two of us, so we're spreading things out. 2 nights ago I made this ciabatta/sausage stuffing. Supposedly it's what they make for the staff at Thomas Keller's Yountville restaurant. Awesome flavors, but I'd make quite a few changes. Yesterday after lunch, I made cranberry/apple...

    Punny restaurant names

    There is a pretty popular fleet of food trucks around here called "Curry Up Now." There may also be a brick-and-mortar location, too...not sure on that. About 3 decades ago, I remember a small Thai place/piercing and tattoo parlor called "Thai Me Down".

    I'm batting .000 on USB wi-fi adaptors, after 3 different units. Two were the same (one was a replacement after I had issues with the first), and then I tried a 2nd. For some reason, randomly, I'll loose the wi-fi connection. Sometimes it'll go 2-3 days without disconnecting, and sometimes it'll...

    Last TV show you saw?

    I wanted to like it, but a couple of episodes in, it's not grabbing m like the trailer did. I think I just need to get to the "sideways" episode, as that's what caught my attention in the trailer. Last TV show I watched: Transplant. My girlfriend watches it, and I happened to be in the room. I...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    I think I finally got through to one of my cousins. Once I mentioned that everyone in an old-folks-home who died from it didn't get it from being irresponsible and going to a bar, or a BBQ party, or dining indoors...but that it was from someone else who may have done those things, and then...

    This is super annoying to me, as well. My girlfriend does that. It gets so humid in the car. For me, I don't remember the last time I drove with the air conditioner off.

    The thing about FaceID is that you need to have the phone pointed at your face. I generally prefer fingerprint readers, so I found myself using an unlock pattern more often, if that's even an option an more.
