i'm thinking about taking a long weekend and driving up to maine -- if there are beaches i can get to, they'll probably be empty, because the water is cold

(the beaches up there are made of sharp rocks, anyway, so i should be able to walk around a little)

if its nice out people are at the beach even if they arent swimming.

i feel like if the police can lie and obstruct investigations, then citizens should be able to do the same

cjs: might have massively hosed up.

requested a thinkpad instead of a macbook at the new gig, and am learning the day before I start that linux workstations might be verboten. apparently all PCs must run windows and be managed workstations, but had I gotten a mac I'd have been allowed to run it unmanaged.

thats cause nothing of value happens on a mac

Peggle extreme came w/ the orange box but was removed from everyones libraries for some reason. However, its back on steam and you can get it here for free: https://store.steampowered.com/app/3483/Peggle_Extreme/

if you had peggle deluxe in ur steam it may have been nuked when EA took all their games off steam, but now they're all back.

Also you get peggle deluxe and peggle nights for free with xbox game pass.

a good onion ring is really really hard to make, way harder than a good french fry. also in-n-out fries are literally the worst, i'd rather have oven fries out of a frozen bag from the grocery store

good onion rings, like good french fries, must be frozen at some point and benefit greatly from the consistency and throughput of factory cooking processes

I know i am old, because the overuse and dilution of 'partner' grates on me a little bit. its so clinical and loveless and transactional esp when its like boring portland straights using it. but like i said, i am old and out of touch and will die soon so whatever

same but also because to me it seems like partner in the romantic sense became popular as a way to demur from using girlfriend/boyfriend around homophobes or on 90s/00s sitcoms.

every time someone uses it i hear "ADVERTISER FRIENDLY CORPORATE APPROVED ROMANTIC INDIVIDUAL". but thats just me, use whatever you want.

good to know it's just total garbage though

the smart lock looks like some generic kwikset thing, altho its possible its a 3rd party thing with a kwikset core. you could pull the batteries to disable the smartness.

cjs: how is dell able to create a clone of the cisco IOS CLI and then release it as software on their own switches? i mean it's good for me cos i can just go "oh it's like IOS" and do whatever but how is it even legal?

its probably a combo of cisco not caring and also cisco not wanting a difficult legal battle. it was definitely a nice surprise when i had to use a dell switch and iirc it even had some improvements to command names/autocomplete.
