The sleeve for an Apple /// 5¼” floppy. (Nevermind that the disk that had been in it at the thrift was for a Commodore 64.)  The Apple /// was produced between 1980 and 1984, aimed at business and intended to be the successor to the Apple // liine but it didn’t do so well in the market. My high school owned one but it somehow was missing the drive card that connected its 5 megabyte external hard drive to the machine so no one was able to use it to its fullest capacity.  Bonus if you recognised the Imagewriter and Imagewriter II printers behind it.

Make Your Notifications Less Intrusive with These Soothing Alerts

I sometimes have to locate notification sounds even though I REALLY HATE LOOKING FOR NOTIFICATION SOUNDS! It ranks right up there with codec issues you have to repair because searching for these types of solutions can lead to internet infections or worse, wasted time jumping through links only to reach a paywall. Bastads.

This is a very nice set of soothing short alert tones for your computer or phone. Plus if you do not know how to change the sounds on your device, there are links provided to show you how-to and it’s pretty easy. Takes a few minutes.





THE SOLUTIONS (for the above mentioned other nightamares)

To solve codec issues: download the teeny-tiny FREE VLC and set it as the default player.
To prevent yourself from clicking on the wrong site: Go get the free WOT (WebOfTrust) tool. It will scan webpages and alert you to bad sites within your search results and BEFORE you click.

Dating is not like Python.

So there I was transcribing an archived 2009 Metafilter podcast and once again picking up vital information as I move along. This AskMeFi topic hits home because soon, very soon, I WILL BE DATING!

This AskMeFi they were discussing regarded dating and the obvious seduction techniques a smart mefi girl kept noticing. I guess there are several popular online communities offering advice to nerds? Looks like I might have homework if I do not want to be in the dark.

And Matt Haughey is so funny. He gets it.
He understand nerds probably have social anxiety and they want a playbook. They might say to themselves, “Oh! It’s just like python. I learn a little syntax and the output is I get a woman in my bed.”

So this girl has had these techniques used on her by guys she TOTALLY LIKED .. until they became transparent and predictable.

One technique is called "negging"

A “neg” is essentially a back-handed compliment. The purpose of negging is to “reduce a woman’s social value” in order to “penetrate her bitch shield” and “bring her social perception more in line with reality.” Essentially, to knock down her self esteem a bit so she’s more open to the guy.


I think if I really liked someone and saw that they were using these techniques on me, I would call him out in a nice way (using my honed soft skills, of course) and tell him to stop what he is doing but let’s TALK about why he thinks he needs to use them on me. Or anyone.

This way, even if WE do not work out, I have coached him for the next girl he meets. Making the world a much better place for us women.

has it ever occurred to you that you could change your life right this second if you really wanted to?  you could stand up and yell at your teacher if you wanted to, you could place yourself in a life or death situation if you wanted, you could even take that risk and just spontaneously and passionately kiss the one you really love by surprise.  you could change the entire outcome of our lives, and if our lives are really as bad as we say they are, why won’t we take those chances.

To any Tumblrites who are deaf, hard of hearing, know people who are, or just enjoy cool tech, a start-up called MotionSavvy is working on technology that uses Leap Motion to recognize sign language and and outputs written or spoken English.  The project was started by a group of deaf students at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf (yay RIT!) who moved to San Francisco to develop the product with Leap.

The team has over 800 deaf beta testers, but they are looking for more.  They hope to have a product available to consumers by September of 2015.

For more information, check out this TechCrunch article and this video.

WOW!
