What's ruining Twitter now is them trying to force people to log in to see more than the first few tweets.

This used to be intermittent but it's happening all the time now.

I don't have a Twitter account. I'm not going to get one. I am, however, going to stop stop visiting Twitter sites. As are more and more people.

Way to Darwin Award yourself, Twitter.

Here is a hack to fix browsing Twitter without an account.

Looks like Lawn Mower(1987) with modern non-ASCII graphics. Thanks to archive.org you can play it in your browser.

Why? If you are still enjoying it then why would a cheaper ad-supported tier be a dealbreaker? It's not as if you have to downgrade.

I'll enjoy the change of available content by periodically switching services. I won't be totally abandoning Netflix, just putting them in a rotation with the others. No reason to treat Netflix differently than their competitors.

I've been a loyal customer since they first started mailing DVDs. Abandoning Hastings's promise of no ads ever, makes them just another streaming provider to me. Will be canceling Netflix and start rotating accounts with all the other options out there every few months.

Adult Wednesday Addams Was the best.

Wish they didn't flag and delete Melissa Hunter's web series. Thank goodness for re-posts. Doubt Tim Burton can make a better version, but I'll give it a watch anyway.

I've had a SodaStream (cheap model) for 8 years. First one I bought was defective, and had no issue getting a replacement. Was worried about the plastic button breaking(felt cheap), but after 8 years it still works as new. Wanted to get a glass bottle unit, but a friend who was a material engineer advised me against it. Said that the plastic in the plastic bottles was well chosen and won't leach chemicals if you use cold water and replace them every few years. I don't like their flavors, and never use them. Don't think I've saved any money having a SodaStream, but the taste is much better than the seltzer water from the store and not filling up the recycle bin every week is nice too.

wrlwnd gave some good advice. Always use cold water. It absorbs CO2 easier. Otherwise it will be a bit flat.
Do not use hot water. Even hot tap water can destroy the non dishwasher safe bottles. Trying to carbonate coffee never ends well.

I was considering adding a uBlock Origin rule to do it for this site just before reading your comment. Feel the same way about all the football nonsense too. Guess people have different interests.

And, my generally very mild climate city, winter or summer, Buenos Aires, today has 104 F at the moment, highest after 27 years.

Warned yesterday I closed all this morning like it was frigid winter and spent all day ok, not even a fan on, didn't need air conditioning at all.
Night should get much cooler.

today's news:
https://gizmodo.com/ground-temperatures-hit-129-degrees-as-argentina-suffer-1848345544
Hotter with power outages. Only 106.7f(41.5c) air temp, but they use ground temp in the headlines for the extra clicks.

Don't often see Argentina's weather make international news.

FYI

GlovePIE was abandoned long ago. Carl moved on to other projects... like adding VR support to a GameCube emulator.

FreePIE is opensource. Anyone can modify it if so inclined.

Dragon's Blood was amazing as well.
Guess MOBA are better as animated series.

The Witcher Nightmare of the Wolf wasn't as good as the game, but still another great watch.

Hacknet was my fav from this list, but none of them are representative or will help learning cybersecurity. They are all games with a hacking facade only. I found Microcorruption had a much better balance of fun / learning potential. I'm not up on what is currently available with CTFs.

I guess if you want to discount the average surface temp on Venus being ~860 degrees F, with a perpetual acid ran from perpetual sulfuric-acid clouds, etc., you might talk about "life on Venus"...I guess...;)
They theorize the life on Venus would likely be microbes living in a Earth like layer of atmosphere, not on the surface.

Here is an interview with the lead author of the paper.

Didn't mean to imply GlovePIE had adware. I've talked with its dev enough to know it's highly unlikely he would do something like that. Meant that since GlovePIE's website isn't up anymore and you might end up downloading it from a free download site like Download . com which have added adware to their downloads before.

Didn't know GlovePIE still had features FreePIE didn't. I've run into the case where neither had a feature I wanted, but the FreePIE devs made a module after I asked. I know GlovePIE's dev was happy and amazed with how many people have found it useful.

Used Glovepie years ago. Talked with the dev a few times on other forums. Don't think he works on it anymore. If you want something that is still being developed you might want to try FreePIE. It's opensource and you don't have to download it from unofficial sites that occasionally try to bundle adware.
