The number of stock photos of routers with a network cable plugged in but missing the power cable is too damn high.
In honor of Steve Wilhite, I present you this unanimated JIF GIF. A one-frame origin story. twitter.com/howtogeek/stat…
The save-for-web function in the Photoshop speed reference chart feels like a time machine. If you stare at it long enough it'll take you right back to 1992.
All I care about in regard to the Twitter CEO shakeup is if Jack's replacement is also going to look like a Game of Thrones character. We've had Peter Dinklage. Which look-alike should we have next?
The speed of a modern PC with an M.2 drive really takes all the fun out of the "I'mma play on my phone while this updates and restarts" routine.
Whatever important thing you're doing right now is not as important as reading this massive list of Hocus Pocus trivia I lovingly crafted for you. lifesavvy.com/99829/the-best…
In a bid to cut down on PR spam I'm going to filter out all emails that include the words or phrases: trends, under a rock, ignoring me, in case you missed, guest post, hi, hello, how are you, and my name. That should do it.
I built a new computer and put in 32GB of ram with the thought of "Hah, now I'll have enough for all my Chrome tabs," and then I switched to Firefox.
"People, but not smiling like idiots at inanimate objects" would be a really great filter for stock photo sites to have.
I switched my desk to standing-mode for the first time in ages and now I feel uncomfortably close to the ceiling in a very Alice-in-Wonderland way.
Is it going to help me get through my Steam backlog? Because that's the killer feature I need. twitter.com/reviewgeeksite…
If I had a dollar for every unsolicited work email I got, I wouldn't need a work email because I'd be living an early retirement life on a undisclosed private island.
.... 28 million dollars to go to space and you skip it because of a scheduling conflict. Was the conflict you forgot you were first in line for the second coming? twitter.com/nytimes/status…
I just tore apart my house looking for a lost credit card only to find that it was under my keyboard. Good times.
The number of applications I have looked at that claim "10 years writing experience" but provide zero evidence of that is... staggering.
DIY Hot Take: Fiberglass fish tapes are the iPhones of the cable pulling world. Such a smooth user experience. You'll even say "Wow, it just works!"
"Atomic Annie & The Sad Sacks" would be such a great retro band name. businessinsider.com/us-army-atomic…
Zombies Ate My Neighbors, man what a throwback. Just reading the name made the brainworm soundtrack start playing in my head. twitter.com/GOGcom/status/…
I signed up for YouTube Premium thinking "Now those stupid sign up boxes will be gone" and on the FIRST video they nag me to sign up for YouTube TV. This is some real bullshit, folks.

I also have a closed-plan kitchen and love it. Homes filled with distinct and separate intimate spaces (kitchens included) are where it's at. twitter.com/AptTherapy/sta…
Some days the trending bar on Twitter is really boring and pedestrian and some days it's a beautiful bit of absurdism.
A teenage couple wearing black turtlenecks and acid-washed ripped jeans just went whizzing by my office window on longboards and now I don't know what year it is anymore.
What in the actual hell, Facebook? No, I don't think I'll play any of your great games.
My general pissed-off-ness about DST has transformed into a general pissed-off-ness about time in general. There is not enough time in the day and somebody needs to do something about that.
I don't know if DST wrecks me this much every time and I forget about it, but this year the DST transition has felt like a multi-day combination of jetlag and a hangover.
I've been experimenting with time blocking and boy, I tell you what, your time never feels so finite as it does when you actively account for it and block it off.
I'm looking forward to the annual round of "Daylight Saving Time is bullshit" articles wherein we will do absolutely nothing about the bullshit and repeat complaining about DST at the scheduled time next year.
When I was a lad minimum wage was such that 1 Hour of Labor = 1 Big Mac Meal 'n change. Today it isn't enough to pay for a Big Mac Meal. If we're not going to deal with wages, we gotta start subsidizing Big Mac Meals. Anyways, thanks for coming to my Maconomics TED Talk.
The FedEx guy just pulled up blasting "What's This?" from the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. This should be a commercial for Christmas 2021, recreating the package getting dropped off theatrically on the "Oh, could it be I got my wish? What's this?!" line.
Coming to a theater near you: *Powder Town* -- Two guys, ten kilos of misplaced cocaine, and a crazy plan to reclaim a lost fridge. Starring Zach Galifianakis and Michael Cera.
Given how aggressive my utility company is about getting their hands on my old refrigerator, I'm beginning to suspect this is the start of a comedy movie that revolves around my fridge insulation actually being 10 kilos of coke.
I have some ~*personal/professional news* to share~. I've been promoted to SEO Manager / Managing Editor at LifeSavvy Media (@howtogeek, @reviewgeeksite, @lifesavvysite, @CloudSavvyIT)!

Been using the Signal desktop app for a week or so now. It's really great and fills that sad no-iMessage-without-a-Mac void. twitter.com/howtogeek/stat…
Here's to the hope that there might be one day this week where I can manage to not accidentally rub lime juice in my eye. Today is not that day, alas.
And for my fellow list junkies and project management dorks in the crowd—I see you and I love you—this is from a Google Form to Sheet system I set up to automate household requests from my family. Best idea ever.
"Project deferred indefinitely until pandemic is over" is not something I ever imagined I'd be putting on a to-do list, but here we are.
Hey come on, Quibi lasted 19.8 Mooches, which is practically an eternity in 2020. twitter.com/reviewgeeksite…
The RSS feed for The New Yorker's cartoons doesn't include the punchline but instead has a metadescription of the image. It's like some sort of non-humor Garfield-without-Garfield experience.
This "deep focus" playlist I'm listening to today needs to chill the hell out. I want background music to work to, not a sense that I'm about to blast off into space on an epic quest to the edges of the universe.
My first thought: "What in the actual hell?" My second thought: "What's the insulation R-value of empty beer cans?" realtor.com/news/unique-ho…
I was trying to remember the term "CrossFit" but was drawing a total blank, so I Googled "gym cult" and got the answer I was looking for immediately.
Tummygria: an alcoholic punch you make by mixing wine, fruit, and various spirits... in your tummy. (I can find no evidence anyone has ever used this word in any context, let alone this one. You're welcome, everyone. This is my gift to the world today.)
A 2020-2021 bring-your-own-supplies list for 5th graders in a US elementary school. You won't just need sanitizer kids, you'll be buying it yourself. If you need me, I'll be pouring a very stiff drink and trying to forget this and the rest of 2020 along with it.
Btw, just so nobody is thrown off by it, "game" is probably the wrong word to use as it has far more of a whimsical little experimental project feel than a traditional game. Still, I'm really enjoying just dinking around with it.
Bought 'Townscaper' because it looked like an adorable chill low-stress game. It absolutely it. Totally worth $6 to just fool around with. store.steampowered.com/app/1291340/To…
Do you wave at the end of video calls? Prior to this article, it had never even crossed my mind. I just click the "end call" button and that's that. cnn.com/2020/06/23/tec…
I recorded 2:20 of me eating Sunchips, typing, and eating more Sunchips and typing, to test how long the Twitter voice function would run. Is self-made ASMR a thing? I think I like the sound of me eating Sunchips and typing.
