    Attn: Computer people. WHY??!

    yes, this is solid advice for 95% of webstores.

    wow, that's even worse than the Demon Core https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon_core

    But really, it does work, and here's the best 'ELI5' answer I've yet seen:

    Attn: Computer people. WHY??!

    Not saying this is you, OP, but most of the time in the wild, tech issues are PEBCAK: Problem Exists Between Computer And Keyboard (Or, if you like, PICNIC: Problem In Chair, Not In Computer). I purposefully block about 95% of cookies and other trackers when I browse, so I'm constantly having...

    LA to Atlanta is one of my favorite drives, for sure.

    Where have all the solos gone?

    Out of pop, thankfully. Only a select few knew how to make them work in a 3 minute song.

    Don't tell Francisco Tárrega! :rolleyes:

    The TENET film and Aesthetic Dissonance

    Fair enough (we can at least agree that it is probably a low-'skill' endeavor, but I would still say 'creativity' and 'imagination' are both high here), but also going by that particular definition, don't forget the part '...or that expresses important ideas or feelings.' A black canvas can be...

    The TENET film and Aesthetic Dissonance

    What? Who makes this distinction? At what point does replication cross the line from 'possible but challenging' ("art"?) to 'so easy' ("not art"?)? In ancient times, Purple was a color of royalty and wealth because it had to be manufactured using extract from sea snails, a difficult and...

    Coincidence? Facebook weirdness.

    That said, I've been happily free of the Facebook umbrella for over a year now, and that alone has been wonderful.

    Coincidence? Facebook weirdness.

    It's not just an ad-blocker, it's a DNS sinkhole. One benefit is blocked ads; another is blocked trackers. Pairing Pi-Hole with other services that can be run concurrently (like a VPN, for example) provides even better filtering—but as a first step into privacy, Pi-Hole alone is pretty great.

    Coincidence? Facebook weirdness.

    may I suggest https://pi-hole.net as a first step

    kermit the frog is a better songwriter than you and me...

    Fascinating cover; I have conflicted feelings about it. He completely blows through the 'lynchpin pitch' of the entire song—that appoggiatura that ought to happen on the second syllable of "con-nec-tion"—when it appears at 2:49, 3:47, and 4:57. To put it in the context of another rainbow song...

    Thinking about switching from Studio One to Logic

    I bought Logic Pro 9 in 2012, and Logic Pro X came out in 2013; I don't recall paying for that 'major' (i.e., version-number) update... But even if I am misremembering, I know for a fact that all the versions since (we are now at 10.6.1) have been free. So that's at least more than seven and a...
