Their support techs would need to look into it but apparently they're too busy doing who knows what to even respond, let alone in a timely manner. It'll be a pain to figure it all out but I very seriously doubt we'll be sticking with this host once our prepaid time is up in November or December. I'll need to look into a hosting service that isn't total garbage.
What the fuck?
This host is being garbage. I hope we can get a new one that isn't absolutely terrible

I just found out my uncle Phillip is dead :'( he was grandpa's sisters husband, and he was really nice. He was a radio announcer several years ago for the Miami Dolphins, and Marlins.

the extent to which you can care about whatever it is.

but like, in reverse order. the less you care, the more you can calmly decide your feelings.

I don't think you can really (directly) control your immediate reaction to a particular event, but you may well be able to control your reaction to that reaction, so to speak, which can determine how those feelings develop from that more uncontrollable starting point. More indirectly, you can also probably condition yourself (deliberately or inadvertently) to react in a particular way to a particular stimulus, so as to shape your immediate reaction in a different direction (even if you still won't have much direct influence over it at the actual time you're reacting). But even the most disciplined person is still going to have moments where their visceral reaction is at odds with what their rational brain thinks. In those cases, the best we can do is control how we act upon our feelings, and wait for them to subside to such a degree that Ol' Brainy McGee can reclaim the driver's seat.

i'd say, yes, but the thing is, being good at stuff is good, because then you can consequently suck at that thing while knowing which suckiness will not work and which will

I think Inverse Jesus got his hands on the bottle of wine I just opened before I did, because it tastes decidedly like water.

Man, Microsoft really did well with Windows 10. I mean it knows even better than I do when I want to update it. I never would have guessed that I'd want to update right in the middle of trying to play a game. (And I couldn't reschedule it. Windows flat out refuses to let me choose when to schedule updates for some retarded reason. The option to let me schedule them is greyed out.) Oh and did I mention this locked me out of my computer for two freaking hours because it was apparently the first service pack for Windows 10 or some shit? Great job making me want to use your worthless operating system Microsoft.

Luckily for me I don't even get that much, lol. I even have the "defer updates" option ticked and on top of this when I first got up I chose the "update and restart" option in the win+x menu and this still happened like 4-1/2 hours after I rebooted. Cause apparently the "update and restart/shutdown" options don't actually bother updating despite their label.

As for the video itself: I dunno about racist but I definitely felt like strangling someone. Preferably whatever moron is responsible for the way Windows 10 handles updates. Microsoft should have learned a different lesson from people not wanting to bother with updates. The solution was not to force them to update regardless of whatever they're doing. (Indeed it only makes me want to find a way to flat out break Windows' ability to update at all.) The proper solution would be to change the underlying structure of Windows so it doesn't require you to reboot in order to install 90% of them.
Alice wrote:it was apparently the first service pack for Windows 10 or some shit?
I actually looked it up and I'm not sure why this update took so long. The service pack update isn't until August. If normal updates take this long there's no way in hell I'm installing a service pack since those tend to take far longer than standard updates.

Man, regarding the Windows stuff, I think I got lucky. My laptop is from work and thus has Windows 7 Enterprise Edition, which is the only version that doesn't get the free Windows 10 update. Yay! And by changing a few registry values, the computer cannot restart itself from updates ever. Now to hope the laptop never ever quits on me and it's all good! :lol:

Mandatory twitter thread complaint: Since February, my workweek has surpassed 80 hours per week (writing my thesis and doing stuff in my lab is 40 hours+, then a second job Thurs, Fri and Saturday which also takes 40 hours+, which pays rent while I finish the thesis, since I ran out of PhD funds a while ago.) Sometimes the exhaustion catches up on me. Both eyes have been red for nearly three days now due to the long hours and not sleeping due to all the work stuff on my mind. I've also lost 7% of my weight since starting the other job, since it's super stressful and absolutely not for me.

Anyways, it's good to throw stuff like this out into the aether to be swallowed up in the thousands of other posts. Feels good :D

Hope everyone else here is doing okay! Feel free to vent to me if you like! And as that minigame in AUS says: KEEP GOING!!
