Strange that there's no listing on Steam yet. EGS exclusive?

My text mentioning Steam above the quoted yellow part is paraphrased from the press release. This may yet change, but here's exactly what they say about release plans:

UK video game publisher Reef Entertainment is proud to announce the release of TERMINATOR: RESISTANCE for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via Steam®. It will release on November 15 2019 in Europe & Australia and December 3 2019 in North America.

No Quake, Half Life, Doom, Duke Nukem, Unreal or Counter-Strike in the top 50, blasphemous.

Wrong century.

Just stop with the links to pay sites already, or at the very least label them as such and stop wasting my time.

Beyond the clickbait, the article regurgitates a blog post where someone calls out a couple of IMITATION ad blocking extensions using those popular names to lure users. Apparently they each fooled nearly a million people into propagating fraudulent referral schemes.

Yeah just download from official sources instead of some site that looks like adblocker.wix.cn or officialublock.freesite.in, and you're fine. >_< Humans are dumb.

Actually, the main thrust was that these fake ad blockers were available through the official Chrome Web Store. They call out Google for their lack of actual curation.

Yup, cloudfront turned out to be the culprit. We had an image embedded in a story from Epic Support that was hosted there.

We killed the link to the image and the problem went with it.

Sorry about that and thanks for the help in tracking it down.

I seem to be getting the warning from the image embedded in the story "Borderlands 3 Save Game Issue Hotfix". The image doesn't load and when I try to manually load it, Malwarebytes gives me a pop up saying that it is a Trojan.

That was it. Thanks for figuring it out.

This is unsettling. I'm looking into this, so if you have any more details that can assist in determining what's going on, I'd appreciate you sharing them. Thanks.

So how was her name pronounced? Cook-ie? Because it should just have been coke-ie. Who the fuck names their kid cokie?

It is pronounced coke-ie. The origins of the nickname are in the article.

Roberts, born Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs, said she got the name "Cokie" from her older brother, who couldn't pronounce Corinne and dubbed her Cokie instead. The name stuck with her ever since.

I kind of wish she had gone by Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs Roberts. It's got a ring to it.

Blue, are you able to tell individual ducks apart? And if so, have you named any of them yet?

Quackers, Honkers, Paddler, etc. are good sorts of names for ducks.

I can tell a few of them apart.

MrsBlue came up with a set of names for the main group of 13. The seven dwarves, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Tic, Tack, and Toe. But there were 21 of them this morning, so we need more names.

Am I the only one getting this every time I visit? I've hit 'I accept' each time and it still pops up whenever I come back. And where did it come from anyway? Doesn't look like it's part of Blues. Or am I being paranoid?

It's a legit cookie consent from the folks who handle the advertising here. You should only have to deal with it once, though, so if it keeps happening please let me know so I can have it looked into.

When this wasn't clearing up on its own, MrsBlue found me a stretching exercise online that seems to have helped greatly.

Link?

blue your back yard is spectacular. i see our amazon referrals are doin you a solid XD

To be clear, that's actually not our backyard. We are now in a condo, and our property ends at the edge of that patio.

But yes, we are very lucky to be set right on the big pond like that. The view and the duckies are great.

What about other wildlife in your area? Do you see any squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, et al? I recently saw a possum and a skunk cruising by my place - which I could count on one hand the amount of times I've seen in the wild. It's always nice to put a bird feeder out for all the critters. They all seems to get down on the stuff.

Wildlife is surprisingly sparse, but our condo complex is especially dense with humans, so maybe that shouldn't be a surprise.

The only raccoons we've seen were roadkill. We have only seen one deer, and we used to have them all over our far-less rural village in Westchester. We assume it's because there are actual habitats in the woods for them here. We also get far fewer squirrels here, which I chalk up to them being fast-food for the numerous raptors we see soaring about (there are a lot of eagles). We do see more chipmunks here than our old home, where they were almost completely nonexistent. There is also a family of three swans who live on the pond. The youngster gets whiter all the time as his baby feathers molt, and presumably he'll be ready to fly south when the time comes. There are also herons, and the pond is home to assorted snapping turtles and frogs, though the bullfrog that used to serenade us seems to be missing lately (may be related to the snapping turtles).

That's about it. So far no rabbits, skunks, snakes, or bears.

It's possible you're delaying their departure by giving them a reliable food source

Actually the conventional wisdom on this is that a food source will not delay or deter migration. Quite the opposite, it can help provide them with the energy they'll require to make the long journey.

Do you have space for bird feeders at your new digs Blue? When we lived North of Newburgh, we put out oiled black sunflower seeds and suet (hot pepper infused to deter squirrels). and easily had 20 plus species a year. If your patient enough Chickadees will even eat out of your hand.

We do, I think I will be putting out a feeder this winter. I actually experienced the chickadee thing years ago at my dad's place. One landed on my head and then perched on my arm... didn't even poop on me the little darling.
