    Microsoft Word’s Inclusive Word Checker

    I’ve heard of this stupid feature before, but had largely forgotten about it because I had read that it was optional.  Then The Right Scoop made a post about it. It is dumb, but fortunately, it’s exclusive only to Microsoft 365 users (of which I am one).  And, so far, it appears to be opt-in, and not turned on by default. How To Geek has a post about how you can go about enabling it…just follow these instructions, but uncheck all the items in the Inclusiveness section if, for some reason, it’s been enabled. If you have a standalone version…

    They Just Don’t Care

    So GETTR is no better than Parler

    I am sure you’ve heard of Twitter clone GETTR.  I was suspicious from the start, given that they have an app in the App Store – if there’s an app in Apple’s censorious App Store, then they’re probably compromised.  And,…

    Twitter Has A New CEO, LOL

    I am laughing because only someone truly naive would think that a new CEO at Twitter would make anything better.  It clearly hasn’t.  The new CEO is some totalitarian monster from India who has absolutely no respect or regard for…

    …And The Salt Shall Flow

    I woke up this morning, got informed of the lovely speeding ticket I’ve incurred (damn lead foot), had breakfast and then swept the kitchen.  Once all of that was done, I sat down with my iPad and checked YouTube (I am…

    It’s Time for Hogwash!

    Before I continue, I am very sorry for not updating as frequently.  I’ve moved across the country, from the East coast to the West coast, and it’s been really stressful and there’s still a crap-ton for me to do.  Plus,…

    20 Years

    So today marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long, and yet at the same time it does feel like it was a long time ago. I had…

    You Happy Now

    A singer I used to listen to, who was entirely a-political, celebrated the 2020 presidential election by posting an Instagram story about how wonderful it was to have a proper gentleman as President. Or something like that. I was so…

    Subverting Expectations

    Last Friday, Netflix added Masters of the Universe: Revelation and pretty much every pop culture YouTuber I subscribe to has been talking about the fallout all weekend. Sometime last year, Clownfish TV had announced that one of their trusted sources…

    The Canary In The Coal Mine

    So basically, vaccine passports have been introduced in Europe. France was the first to fall, in which their (admittedly handsome) diva President announced this new policy on Bastille Day of all days.     And I was thinking, “he’s not…
