    yes, it has joined the ever-growing "stuff to sell" pile.

    BTW, if you read in the news about any stagecoaches being robbed
    by a masked man with a tricorn hat and flintlock pistol, that certainly
    isn't me.

    so ..... the story hits about actress lashana lynch appearing as 007 in the new bond movie and suddenly the internets are full of dungwits offering insights about how it's the end of the franchise and feminism gone mad in a doctor-who-esque way

    if you haven't seen the story, lynch plays an agent who has assumed the mantle of 007 after bond walked off at the end of the last movie - she is tasked with finding bond and bringing him back into the fold for a new mission

    and that's it

    no mention of her becoming the new 007 for the next 5 movies or anything like that

    but you know what these interweb warriors are like

    "i know enough to know what's instantly forgettable"

    ^ She'll never find me

    Anyway, I just tried to add money online to my pay-as-you-go cell phone acc't, it wouldn't accept my login, chat-boxed to a guy, then his supervisor, finally reset and re-did everything, took 30 minutes, mostly waiting for him to respond in chat.
    at the end the guy said it was something wrong on their end and he's sorry. At least he admitted and apologized, he could have easily either lied or left that out.

    (camera pulls back to reveal lashana lynch standing next to cellpone guy, who
    just stalled you long enough to trace your location)

    saw a thing the other day about giant crabs and it reminded me that
    not only have I eaten giant crab, but I still have the carapace from one.

    This is 27cm at the widest point and it's not even a large one:

    That's not even the slightest bit creepy...

    if you encounter one in the wild there is a high probability that you
    will start hearing the Amok Time fight music.

    The gnats I moaned about earlier are now gone. However....

    Last night in my shop I noticed some little tiny movements in the corner of my eye, barely detectable. I marked it down as age with the inevitable visual deterioration; 'floaters'.
    Later, inside, a dust mote in front of my face suddenly resolved into an itsy-bitsy spider on a drag line from the ceiling! Clapped hands removed the threat, and I started to put things together....
    Gnat invasion = predator population explosion = no more gnats = Lots of Hungry Spiders.
    I suddenly recalled much idle scratching for the last few days and realized the tiny spiders have found a new food source; me. Drag-line guy (hats off and hand over heart) was from the 101st Airborne Spidey Battalion.

    The Circle of Life.

    if you've seen the movie Arachnaphobia then you'll know it may
    be wise to keep a nailgun in easy reach.

    A while back I switched from Google's DNS to Cloudflare's DNS.
    It loaded up faster and I liked it but I couldn't get it to access the site this morning so I switched back and now everything is working but just a bit slower.
    CF loaded the main page once, then I either got 404's or it couldn't find the server at all even though all the "is it down" sites says it wasn't.

    I wonder why it would work when I went to bed and then wouldn't when I got up..?
