    I do not understand how people can be so effing inconsiderate. This seems to be a more widespread problem than it was before, or maybe it's my imagination.

    It's not a figment of your imagination.

    Hey. Talk on your cell all you like. Jabber away until Christmas for all I care. No problem. But we don't need a broadcast of both ends of the conversation all over the house. Especially when the other end sounds like part of a Men's Warehouse commercial, where the supposed "satisfied customer" is so happy he talks to an answering machine for 20 minutes.

    Even the onsesided part. I hate being int he store and having someone talk at the top of their lungs about personal stuff, dissecting people's lives, telling personal business. Was at tKohls the other day and some lady was blocking the aisle while she had a party of one. I finally blew by her and told lil les rather loudly, as I went by, that I really didn't need to know her business so we would leave and come back to this section when she was done having her conversation. Got a dirty look but sheesh. I dn't need to know who is sleeping with who, what they wore, what they did to get in bed, etc.

    For every woman I hear doing this with her inane personal stuff I hear nine suits doing it about their inane marketing / finance business. It may be an Acela Corridor thing, but the worst offenders are always (1) men, (2) 30s to mid 40s, (3) wearing the International Uniform of the Entitled F-ck. I grew up with these people. They're pond scum.

    ABP/uBlock, Ghostery, HOSTS file update. That does it for me. Haven't seen an ad on YouTube in ages.

    ETA: Add OpenDNS to that.

    Did the HOSTS file update, we'll see if that helps.

    Aaaaaaugh. Our trap team missed out on first place in league this year by 0.06 birds out of 700+ birds between the two teams in the shootoff.

    Where's the thread in this forum to complain about how Win10 shuts off the WiFi on a laptop by default to "save power" and it takes rattling through both network adapter and power management settings to make it stay on (and I'm still not sure I have it set correctly).

    C'mon people.
    Seriously.
    No where to < bleep > about MSFT?
    < shakes head in disgust >

    Why is the FB Scrabble app suddenly trying to force me to play the Mattel version. I can't access the old kind on my Surface. My laptop has no problem

    It doesn't shut off my wifi, either. Once in a while, I have to re-establish a connection (instead of auto-connect) at a place I've been before, but that's not a big deal.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
