It’s only a ping if it’s from the TCP/IP region of the Internet, otherwise it’s just a sparkling notification.

Design peeve: icons with a none/off/disabled state using a / stroke instead of a \ stroke. The internationally-recognized “ban” symbol has a stroke from top-left to bottom-right, so it would make sense for your icons to, too. 😉 🚫📵🔇🚭🚯🚳🚷🔞🔕🚱 etc.

I find it hard to believe Microsoft would spend 69 BILLION DOLLARS on a company just to fundamentally change its leadership and its cash cow of a business model. Somehow that is the consensus of gamer hot takes I am seeing, though?

“Wow now Activision Blizzard is going to be completely removed from its rampant abuse of its employees, AND they won’t rely on micro transactions!” lol straight fantasyland A company spends 69 billion dollars because they see a massive return on the investment. It’s simple.

Microsoft mistakenly buys NFT of Activision-Blizzard, believing it gives them ownership of the company.

The #LVFS is now delivering more than 15,000 updates *per-hour* (about x3 normal) -- it's almost like a vendor is shipping updates like crazy for an high severity upcoming security issue. Patch your hardware people! 😉

a 2-minute phone call to schedule a doctor's appointment is turning into an entire morning of fighting with my insurance provider on the phone, in case anyone thought that the exorbitant cost of american healthcare was limited to just the money that comes out of your bank account

Hot take: It shouldn't be up to A) companies to pay Google's ransom so that they actually appear as the top search for their name and more importantly B) consumers to be vigilant enough to know when they have to skip through four paid ads

Hi Folks. I am compiling a list of companies interested in PlayStation 4/5 support for Godot to exist. If yours is, please send me a DM with your contact information (Company name, your name, corporate mail, and whether you are already PS licensed yet or not). Thanks!

Trying to book an ADHD evaluation shouldn’t be a multi-month process involving phone lines that say “we don’t answer the phone, use our website,” websites that never respond after filling out forms, and emails that ask you for your availability then ghost you…

…and then a phone call during the work day from a blocked number, leaving a voicemail claiming you missed your appointment THAT WAS NEVER BOOKED OR COMMUNICATED. Is this a test? Did I pass??

Finally worked up the motivation to send a Sternly Worded Email™️ in response to the last one I sent asking what their next appointment was, letting them know they can’t expect me to answer a blocked number in the middle of the day without ever having confirmed an appointment. 🙃

Update: they responded to the email at 11 PM on a Sunday night of a three day weekend… and I actually got a confirmed, scheduled appointment now! 🎉

You don’t blindly agree with my point of view, therefore you must be a bot. 🤡
Idk if you're a bot but Bitcoin lightning network is instant and near zero fees.
