i can recommend a pillow filled with buckwheat hulls, it's nice and always feels cool

i had one and it was great, but i couldn't get it thin enough for my purposes because the fill would all shift out from under my head when i underfilled the pillow to be as thin as i need.

strong recommend for people that use a thicker pillow though.

the inventor of the model t'pol

windows does (did?) get finicky about them if you did a shortcut to a folder vs. a symlink, as I found out when I used them to shuffle game and software installs around between drives without reinstalling everything

I mainly used them for some big installs, but it made it handy to off-load something to a slower drive and in a better than default install location without reverifying or redownloading

before steam added install relocation, there was a utility that made symlinks and tracked then after relocation to avoid breaking steam's associations for games but it's handy for all sorts of folder referencing

symlinks are pretty easy but junctions were big footguns so i never used them

is an alias in mac os like a summink

iirc:

alias points to a file or folder, so moving the file or folder will still work, and this is what you create in finder.

symlink points to a location so if you symlink to a folder then move the folder the symlink won't point to the new location. you need to create these in terminal.

sorry to hear it, hopefully your cat's issues can be sorted quickly. i had a cat that was prone to UTIs and it sucked for everyone involved because she would just piss wherever when she got them :\ 16 yo means he's prob got some years left, fingers crossed.

my 15 yo dog has skin growths/lumps that keep getting infected and she's also got a bad heart murmur. she's also not eating enough and is super picky now - she will only eat cooked pork, carrots, and oatmeal. thankfully she also eats her "nutritional gel" that has vitamins and minerals she needs. she actually dropped like 40% of her weight before we managed to land on food she would consistently eat now.

because of her age, weight loss, and the heart murmur our vet won't do another lumpectomy (she's had two already) because he's afraid she'll die on the table so we just do our best to keep her clean and fed as long as she continues to have energy, isn't in pain, and tolerates us caring for her

When my wife and I got all of our pets in our early 20s, we did not anticipate what life would be like with a house full of geriatric animals.

i've never had a geriatric pet until now. we had three dogs growing up and they all died prematurely :\ also had the cat but she was rehomed after i moved out because my family was planning to move and didn't want to put her through that stress again - her first 500km move is what triggered a shitload of UTIs i mentioned earlier.
