Any descriptions?

 

I'm surprised you missed it. It was under the "Topics with Current Activity" on the home page for quite a while. It wasn't anything in bad taste, but if was exceptionally distracting:  a little dancing figure with a spiral spinning behind it. Perhaps you did see it, but just didn't consider it at all bothersome.

No internet for four days. Meh.

 

ISP gave me free mobile data 🤗 Cell phone coverage is too poor to use it ☹️

Printer runs out of cyan ink. I only want to print in pale grey, so set the driver to 'use black ink only' - does it work? does it flip!  So I have to order a new cartridge. BUT I want the print out now. Grrrrrr.... I'm praying for a solar flare to free us all from these damn machines.

Oh it's been so long that I don't even know where to start....

 

The short version is that after we lost Todd's dad to Covid, Todd spiraled mentally. We moved back to my hometown in the hopes that a change of scenery would help him; instead, he relapsed into some bad old habits. I decided to divorce; he agreed, but then attempted suicide just before Halloween. SO he's been in the state psychiatric hospital ever since and has no memory of most of the year--including our plans to divorce. He's due home this coming Thursday, and I have no idea what to do. I'm worried that he'll go off the rails again, but I also can't continue the way things were.

 

I'm starting to think "cat lady" is a viable life path.

I have thought of you often @LionsDragon and am so sorry to hear what you are going through 😢 You know you have friends on here, and please reach out if you need to talk.  Having a cat, would be a great comfort 😾.  Do look after yourself t4601.gif

Thank you hon. I wish I had a better update after being gone for so long. He comes home on Thursday and I just don't know what to do.

Thank you. I have a bad habit of isolating when things are bad, so the reminder is a good thing.

 

I have had a cat for some time, and she is an absolute joy. 😻 Since I no longer use Imgur, I am going to have to figure out another way to post pictures so I can show her off!

@LionsDragon I was glad to see your new post ater a while, then read it. Damn... :(

 

Sometimes life gives us a bit more than we are ready to carry. I wish you to figure it out how to go on and what to do next - what is right for you. Take care of yourself. "You are your best thing" (c).

 

 

 

Thank you. "You are your best thing"--I LIKE that!

 

Not gonna lie, I feel overwhelmed.

Reach out. Friends, family, colleagues, social services, anyone. Don't have to face your situation alone.

Now, I have been sleeping for 4-5 hours for a week straight now all because I have to finish up a portfolio on a related field of work, but one I did not partake in. Geez. Now, I think I'm finished with that part.

Norton is now full-blown malware, no hyperbole in the least.

 

Avira too, it is owned by the same company as Norton.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Looks like Avast is next

 

Quote

In August 2021, NortonLifeLock said it had reached an agreement to acquire Avast, another longtime free antivirus product that also claims to have around 500 million users. It remains to be seen whether Avast Crypto will be the next brilliant offering from NortonLifeLock.
