My Roku-raised kids have no idea how cable TV works. They changed channels and didn't know why the other show didn't pause while watching the other one.

Are they still called "toots" or "posts", now? I always chuck when someone favorites my toot, or even boosts my toot. Such confusing imagery.

At a cheap hotel down in lovely Beaufort, SC for a night before heading down to FL. Their pool and "hot tub" are closed due to covid, and they dont serve breakfast, also due to covid. Meanwhile, not a single mask.

Stood up a camera out back to see what's been eating the corn (still surprised the wifi reaches wonderfully). Hopefully I'll spot some deer. So far all I got was this fat rabbit pecking away for 40 minutes.

I've been reading a HELL of a lot recently. Any online book clubs/groups/chats out there worth looking into?

2. Quicker toggle for light/dark mode.
