That's not a drawback inherent in a particular activity, though! ?

You have no idea. From "OK, no new assignments in JIRA." - "Lets code some LANTR" to "Let us go outside and make bubbles." and "Can you take care of my dog."

I do hope that is a replica, something faintly disturbing about it.

Looks to have a Yagi aerial on the side of the locomotive. On-board cameras?

Adds everywhere on the net nowadays, I filter them out so efficiently I hardly even notice them.
Today one did manage to catch my eye though (after having spent at least 15 minutes reading on the page, which is half my job nowadays it seems).
It boldly proclaimed "This device will reduce your power bill by 90%!"

I just had had to quickly stop and consider the possibilities:
  • Most likely, the device doesn't work, and you are frauds and should be in jail.
  • The device works by manipulating your electricity counter, and you are criminals and should be in jail.
  • The device works by simply cutting the power 90% of the time, and I guess you're technically not frauds then, because it does do as advertised in a legal manner?

It's kinda funny how the only possibility that does not involve fraud is also the one that would be the most annoying to the user...

Just took me about 4 hours to add a new branch from Orbiter's repo into my fork... somehow I didn't throw the computer out the window. ?
How isn't this "automated" like updating a branch?

When I was a kid, our cat brought home a snake . . . my mother almost moved out . . . then she took care of it with her .22 rifle . . . the snake, not the cat.

We still fear it to bring home a living rat. We have no idea, how this can even be possible. But our cat is very creative....

If this happens, we will move out and leave the home to the cat....

From what I gather, cats think humans are big dumb animals who've forgotten how to hunt. That's why they bring us things.
My old cat regularly brought mice, snakes, rats, rabbits, birds, etc. to leave as prizes. I miss that old guy. He was a good friend.

What I do on 3 AM in the night... luring a mouse out of a boot and return it to the wild...

A big healthy girl, we discovered her today by chance. Big thank you to my cat for at least attempting home office this night. And now some sleep, this weekend is First Communion here.

(Disclaimer: Yes, this new section of my library is still unsorted.)

Careful, they can chew right through that plastic. One chewed my plastic bin to get birdseed inside.
