Back in my day, games had only 25x80 characters and only 16 colors. You kids these days are spoiled. Screenshots like this blow my mind...

At this point, I won't risk doing business with them. If a server goes offline in the middle of the night, I can't afford to be waiting for days bc they're incompetent, lying assholes that don't follow up. Everyone fucks up now and then, but at least apologize and fix the problem.

Part 2: So I call back later and different, nicer support guy answers the phone. I tell him I'm concerned the service will be bad because they can't even sign me up. He assures me, "This is not normal, don't worry, I'll drop the credit authorization. You'll get an email authorization." No auth email comes, instead I get an email that my account is rejected. Really weird shit. Never had a business that didn't want my money. I'm thinking maybe they didn't like my VPN? I was just using ProtonVPN.

I tried to sign up at Atlantic.net, but for some reason they rejected my business bank debit card. So I call them up, the support tech is a real asshole and says, "Sorry we can't disclose why your card was rejected, and you can't use another card." So he transfers me to a supervisor who decides, "We made an error, we'll send you an email to re-authorize." The email says "Card number ending in "fg==" so I'm thinking the support tech is just fucking with me.

One of the biggest accomplishments Trump ever made was showing everyone the news is fake

Is your Internet glitching out? I couldn't get Amazon to work, so tried Walmart... "Sorry...
We’re having technical issues, but
we’ll be back in a flash."

The definition of fully vaccinated changed to getting a booster shot today. You know, just like the tin foil hatters told you it would. twitter.com/Oilfield_Rando/sta

Correct me if I'm wrong here:

"Stable coins" the best analogy I can think of: poker chips. A casino can mint unlimited poker chips, it doesn't mean each poker chip is backed by real money. It's a convenient unit of exchange while you're at a casino (or crypto exchange) but it's a recipe for disaster if a business gets greedy and sells more "chips" than they can afford to redeem.

Not that I really care (I don't use exchanges) but helps to know what's going on to warn friends/family about scams.

Jack's departure will make it clear that he was the last bulwark against much more aggressive censorship at Twitter. Jack deserves the break, but I don't believe it will be positive for the platform.

Countries aren’t just competing for hash rate, individual states are too.

Wyoming 🇺🇸 is welcoming miners with open arms.

I expect more to do the same.
