    Hahah sorry, didn't think it'd be seen as gory or anything. Makes sense though, considering where we're posting haha.

    KnightBrolaire, thanks for the tip! I thought about it as I know of that application, just don't have any right now. Gonna order some tonight.

    Apple Tv vid player is dogshit. Easily the worst of all the streaming sites I've used over the years. It's got a bad layout and it's constantly buffering, whereas hulu/amazon and netflix are essentially never buffering with my connection.

    Took my family to Tampere for a couple of days before the holidays are over, and when checking what to do we found Koiramäki, which is a kids play town based on stories by Mauri Kunnas, a famous Finnish children's book author...
    Well, going there was basically as useful as wiping my ass with 60€.

    Apparently nobody is old enough (or watches enough of classic British TV) to get the funny I made in the meme thread.

    Everyone is waiting for Dylan to come make a statement. It's Captain Peacock saying a classic line from Are You Being Served?!!!

    Because of all the rain we have had lately we had to drain the pool today. Twice.

    Oh wah. We've been in the 100+ range the past week and probably another week at least to go, and not a drop of rain in sight.

    3+ inches last night, 3+ inches this afternoon. I had to drive down the interstate going about 30 mph it was coming down so hard, and we have Tropical Cyclone 9 headed our way.

    Yeahhhh been really feelin' that Norcal heat over here. Been over 100 since June.
    Worst thing is since my pool was so poorly designed, and it's been so hot, it's been impossible to keep the algae out; so I've got this unusable pool in my backyard taunting me.

    Do you have a service or are you keeping up with your chemicals? I’ve found once you get water chemistry pretty stable it is just minor dosing for maintenance.

    Doing it myself. I can't get a service; only a couple guys do this area and the only one that isn't at cap whenever I call doesn't want it. Apparently because of how they placed the outlet for the pump it has some weird water circulation issue that prevents some of the water from hitting the filter.

    So....it's not uncommon for all of the chemicals to test well, but still get a random bloom out of nowhere. Happened at the end of last season, too.

    Well, when you are checking your pH level, there could be too much pee and not enough h!

    I am currently mad because we seem to have gotten ourselves into some weird culture where being critical even in the slightest makes you an asshole even if you're right. Sometimes especially if you're right.

    We got into a conversation at work about IT changes coming down the line that have the potential to make it very difficult to get anything done. They're trying to work out ways to make working from home permanent, and evaluating different solutions we can use for that going forward. The idea they're pushing for is being picked on the basis of it being "good for heavy office work", and I was linked some article about how they won some kind of government defence contract or something - but I tried to point out that game/software/content development needs are very different from government or generic administrative/office needs. Everyone got defensive, and the conversation ended on people cracking jokes to diffuse the challenge.

    They're literally presenting something that can potentially prevent me from doing my job, but I'm the asshole for asking IT to consider the needs of the people they're supposed to support.
