I wonder at what point I'll regard Google+ as having less activity/content than Ello.

Clicked on the link anyway. Seems like audio is involved somehow. No thank you, I really want my social media to be completely silent and, preferably, purely textual. (Insert comment about kids and lawns here.)

What's this rumbling?  Are the Boomers trying to pretend some other generation is nearly as terrible as them again?

Observation: usually after a random shooter kills a bunch of people at a place of education, there's an immediate chorus of conservatives yelling at everyone not to use a tragedy to advance an anti-gun agenda, and so on and so forth, and I see that all over the place.  This time, while that may be happening, I am not seeing that all over the place.  Either it's happening less this time, or the media landscape around me has changed in some way.

Further observation: this being a thing about which I'm able to say "usually" is just pretty fucking terrible all around.

Huh!  Apparently some recent update made the Google "Play" store stop working if you use browser extensions to prevent Google+ and Google Analytics tracking you.  (If I pause that blocking, it works, but if I leave them blocked, it does not.)

Pocket Storm, my generative audio thunderstorm environment, is now out for the new Apple TV!

I'm happy to announce that Pocket Storm for the Apple TV is now available in the new Apple TV App Store. Apple's new set-top box ships today, and you can get your favorite thunderstorm on it. To find it, open the App Store app on the TV's main screen, select Search, and enter STORM.

So, I keep hearing that content creators that do not opt into "YouTube Red" are not allowed to keep their videos on "regular" YouTube at all, regardless of how big or small they are.

But I haven't even been approached about it yet, and I have several videos up there.

I think the news items on this are leaving out some detail, or taking something for granted.

Well, fuck.

...and if someone is discussing a mathematics conference that gets shut down because someone in the "1+1=3" camp is making violent threats against people who claim "1+1=2", then nobody should try to divert the discussion towards Peano arithmetic, and anyone with the poor taste to do so should certainly stop when asked.

Refusing to comply is sea lioning, IMHO.

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best way for a lazy person who doesn't study enough to learn ASL?

(My hearing still works, but I do have partial hearing loss, and while it's not getting worse quickly, it's not exactly improving. Maybe it'll never go all the way, but I'm starting to think this would be prudent to learn within the next few years.)

Yesterday: woke up with a tickle in my nose/throat, which turned into burning later in the day, nearly losing my voice by evening.

Today: woken up early, by the mucous fairy packing my sinuses with cottage cheese.  I'm trying the "Halls cough drop" trick to ward the little bastard off, but it may be too late for me.

Everyone's physiology is different, but I've found that a few grams of vitamin C can often stop a cold.

Yeah, I'll just pee most of it out, but in the meantime my body has every little bit it can use.

Hm.  If I made a drone that flew a few feet off the ground and looked like a spinning blue turtle shell, I wonder how many drivers would freak right the fuck out upon seeing it.
