Today is special in the paradoxically odd scheduling universe I work in: today is my Saturday and according to the calendar this is Saturday. There is a bit of a contentious point, however, in that I have to work tomorrow, which means today might actually be considered my Sunday. Or maybe I should think of it as a Combo Weekend, where both days are smushed into one, and call this my Satursunday. That doesn't exactly work for me since it's impossible to scrunch 48 hours into 24, so maybe I'll just call it a day off since my weekend actually begins on Tuesday.
I did order a color printer last evening, an Epson. Rather than go with a laser, I went with an inkjet which has a lower cost and, surprisingly, better reviews. The dpi (dots per inch, I believe) is higher on the printer I'm getting then on most laser printers. It even works with Alexa... That's a bit of a joke. I have a tablet which works with Alexa and she is turned off. You see, Alexa listens and I have a habit of talking out loud. Alexa doesn't understand what I'm saying (bad AI) and will either say the equivalent of "that does not compute," or display something extraneous on the screen. Some might enjoy watching a video on olive picking because Alexa incorrectly interpreted what they've just said. Not me. Of course, I also have a problem of having to talk to Alexa rather then Alex. Why does society seem to think our assistants need to be female? For example, if Alex misinterpreted what I said, I might actually watch something like this:
your last paragraph - I can see that happening.ReplyDelete
and the thugs are already bitching "we will work with you but only if you vote for our agenda". FUCK DAT SHIT!
Yes, the 14th exempts them, it doesn't.ReplyDelete
I'm not even watching the trial. Most are already saying trump won't be convicted. They will never get more then 6-7 republicans on board.ReplyDelete
So I hope the NY DA is ready.....
It would be funny if they called him to the witness stand though, wouldn't it?Delete
Thank you for the shout out. I like my Alexa but I do not find enough use for it. Perhaps if I had more of the house wired with smart devices. I think I am getting too old to care though.ReplyDelete
It's not age, it's just easier to get up and turn on the damn lightDelete
