Hello all! After.... *looks at last time signed into MacNN*... whoa, 8 years! i thought I'd pop my head in to say hello.

Since I was last here, I've moved across country to Phoenix, AZ. working for GoDaddy's competitor.

Sad t see that the main MacNN site has gone to join pets.com and other dead sites *pours 40oz. on ground for missed homie*.

So who's still around? What's new and exciting? How do you solve a problem like Maria?

An intruder!!

I just wanted to be the first reply.

I have no idea who you are, so enjoy some free dark sarcasm.

I'm also grumpy at this time of the year. Groundhogs suck, winter weather sucks, I can't type today, and macOS is still buggy. Not much has changed in 8 years. Oh but we have watch bands and an uninspiring CEO at Apple, and BitCoin collapsed.

kearsarge, eh? Reminds me of the mountains in New Hampshire.

Say Hi to my pet Mojave rattlesnake if you see him, I left him somewhere in that hot desert!

Not knowing what that is, I always just considered you the Mac Sergeant-at-Arms.

Hi there. A lot has changed in the last 8 years. I'm probably on my 8th Mac and 4 iPads later.

Oh and there's a big political section, where Cap'n Tightpants crapped his pants and went home.

I know it seems like only moments ago, but the smoking crater that is the PWL is at least 12-years-old.

I don't think he was Cap'n Tiuhtpants 8 years ago.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

LOL, I discovered I can handle extreme dry heat a lot better than extreme dry cold & extreme humid heat.

Plus the cost of living and jobs are a lot better.

I'll admit, the thought of a 100 degree dry heat isn't as bad to me as the thought of the -30 degree wind chills that we get here each winter. But once it pushes 110 degrees (and then even hotter inside of a car on a hot summer day)... how does the car manage? Doesn't that kind of heat hurt the fabrics and the battery?

everyone there gets tinted windows, according to my friend who moved there. When she moved back she got pulled over because that level of tinting was questionable in MA.

Doesn't seem to hurt the car, just the people. Cars used to have glued-on trim inside (fake woodgrain, or labeling for rocker switches) where the glue weakens over a year of heat. Those seem to have gone out of style, removing the problem.

LOL, funny you should ask, I have a black car with black leather interior.........

My battery literally fried and leaked in July (The car's an '10 and it was the original Northern battery designed for cold, not heat).

However it did come fully tinted already so there's that.

These forums are 33% class reunion, 33% time capsule and 33% retirement home.

Which one of the 33% am I? For I classify myself as a The Mighty Grump! Rumors about me being *simply* Mighty are fake news.

I heard a commercial for a retirement home which offered “snacks anytime”.

Is there a way we could swing that?

Offering snacks anytime is easy. So long as you don't expect delivery, just the offer.

That home, what did you get if you asked? A leaf of lettuce? Surely they wouldn't hand out good-tasting unhealthy food to old folks, just for the asking ...

Whats the point of watching your cholesterol or your waistline when you're 90?
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....
