This only deserves about 1/3 of a thread so I won't bother moving this to Gaming... but I'm in the same boat with my white PS4. My friend has the same one as I do but his somehow runs more smoothly. His optical drive is defunct and my ethernet port periodically discos which forces me to go wireless. My choices are basically to limp along with a dying PS4, or drop $400 on a PS4 Pro now. Because who knows about the PS5?

I just realized that I could probably commandeer my son's newer PS4, however that has implications in the family dynamic. He mostly just uses it for Persona 5, though.

My wife has littered my house with several types and generations of Amazon Echos. Mostly I just use it to put stuff on the shopping list without washing my hands, but today the whole setup paid off when dinner was winding down and I said "Alexa, play Mary Mary by Run DMC".

Maybe you had to be there.

I got an email last week via LinkdIn from some company that thought I might like a position they had open in Ocala, FL.

I recently applied for a few jobs from LinkedIn, a number of them were with other recruiting services. Now I continually get fucking spam emails from people who either 1) want me to become a franchisee, 2) want to help me become an entrepreneur, or 3) want to interview me for some job that is wholly fucking unrelated to any of the jobs I applied for like insurance salesman or purchasing agent.

Linkedin is worse than useless.

You basically have to use linkedin to cull out the useless crap. Keeping your skills up to date, and your job history is helpful for that, but also intentionally accepting invites and targeting recruiting services that specialize in your field. I just ignore, remove, or block anything that's not relevant and usually that stops after about a month.

I find it useful when I go into private detective mode and want to know a bit more about some consultant or other person who is hanging around in my working world where I want to know more about what they're up to, what they're *really* trying to sell or do, etc. But I'd never use it if I were trying to hire someone or to get hired.

My boss used LinkedIn to see whose profile matched their resume and cull all of the female candidates...

It is a new level of stalking when you’re digging through a pile of resumes though. I’ve had one since 2006 and keep it semi-up to date and to see what my old work colleagues are up to.

For all of you F13ers out there in the path of the hurricane:  What the fuck are you doing in the path of a hurricane?  Move, already.  We've told you like 100 times.

Seriously, though, that looks like some bad shit.  Stay safe.

Fuck Cancer.

Just found out niece's boyfriend was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  Started in the brain and metastasized to the spine.  Started chemo last night.  He's only 34, forchrissakes.  He'd been having migraine's for a while but just chalked them up to stress from work (he's a construction foreman) but had been sick so niece finally got him to go to the ER (she's a nurse).  Extra-specially sucks because he doesn't have any insurance and this is going to be pricey. 

So tl;dr - fuck cancer.

My son is so hyper at times I’m surprised it hasn’t happened earlier, but he made up for lost time by needing over 50 stitches in his knee last night  ACK!  But the doc was a good seamstress and there’s no joint injury.

For you Lagavulin fans out there the Lagavulin Offerman Edition will supposedly be available soon:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/drink-like-ron-swanson-meet-the-lagavulin-offerman-edition-single-malt-scotch-whisky
Quote
With Lagavulin distillery manager Colin Gordon he tasted different whiskies from the brand’s warehouses to help select the special-edition Scotch. What was Offerman looking for in the samples? “I suppose it’s interesting, it feels like it’s right in pace with my woodworking tastes. I like simple and bold things,” he says. “So I like to build a Craftsman oak table in the style of Gustav Stickley much in the same way that I like my Scotch to have signature peat and smokiness. For some reason, I tend towards the bucolic so I want to taste some leather and some soil. If there’s some actual oak sawdust stirred into the mix it won’t hurt my feelings.”


Also, for us Americans, remember the 25% tariff on single malt Scotch whisky is going into effect on October 18.
