“When I was young there were beatniks. Hippies. Punks. Gangsters. Now you’re a hacktivist. Which I probably would be if I was 20. Shuttin’ down MasterCard. But there’s no look to that lifestyle!

So deactivated it goes.

Received an email inviting me to a gallery viewing of 'The Art of Sylvester Stallone'

Not hard to see who MSN's target audience is when one of the top items is '2019 Walk-in Bathtub Prices'

Shout out to flowcharts for maintaining a symbol for 'sequential data storage'

I really liked my new 7.2 until the moment this popped up unannounced. :blobcatknife:

Lewd (not funny though) 

not to blame the programmers, but if you notice, this android keyboard does not default to a capital letter when it's supposed to.
