Where will I get my conspiracy theories *now*?

Looks like my Twitter is borked. No idea why. If I were suspended, I would expect it to tell me so. My work account seems okay. Is yours working?

I’ve had a technology day, whether I liked it or not. I bought the Hogwarts game in the Steam Spring Sale and I’ve spent my day trying to mod it to work in VR.

Just a couple of clicks! say the YouTubers enthusiastically.

Feh. There was a time in my life when I loved figuring out a new piece of software. Now I just want it to shut up and work.

Twitter working okay in a new private window, so it must be a corrupt cookie or something.

Hogwarts, eh?

Apparently all you have to do is type ‘Plagiarticus Loadofcrapus’ and it’ll start working as intended…

There was a time in my life when I loved figuring out a new piece of software.

Me too, Ma’am. Me too. I started tinkering with these new-fangled desktop computers when I built a Heathkit H8 in 1976.

Just recently my propane provider reworked their website and contracted with the Italians, who subcontracted the jot to the Nigerian Prince of the Email scams. That was apparently made necessary by the U.S. Federal Government rewriting an obscure regulation governing how debit card payments are processed (to increase competition in online payment processing.) Or so I read on the internet somewhere.

Want to help connect my washer and dryer to the internet?

Just kidding, I’ll drag them from the house and sacred fire them to the global warming spirits before I’ll let “location services” know where they are.

I just want it to work the way it did the last time I used it. I’m locked in to Windows 11 for work and I swear it gets less stable the more you use it.

I haven’t used Windows for anything but one old game I can’t play on my MAC or iPad since the Windows 8 fiasco. I never connect to the Net with it.

My opinion of Windows is that the Operating System IS the computer game. You’re constantly doing an update or a work-around for something, and when (whatever) doesn’t work your first thought is “Oh No! Virus?”

Well, Forget That. If you DOS-osaurs enjoy it, you are welcome to it, but I’ve opted out.

@ Skandia Recluse—Heath Kit Computer! I love Heath Kit. I’ve often thought that someone needs to write the biography of Heath Kit. I can’t think of any company that has contributed more to the truly successful education of young people than Heath Kit. Maybe that person is you, Skandia Recluse 🙂

I got flagged as a beep boop bot because I liked and shared too many things in a row.
Le sigh.
Guess I can’t get away from software testing even when I use Xtwitter.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
