Imagine tony, the man who built his own AI, the man who hacked into the pentagon on a dare as a teenager, the man who built a metal flying suit for himself, having to help steve with wireless printing problems
“Open your control panel.”
Steve could hear Tony’s sigh- could have probably heard it from a mile away. “Click the apple icon. It looks like an apple. Top left corner. Top. More top.”
Steve wanted to comment on his irritation, as if he could, perhaps, be just a little less condescending, but he curbed it. Tony was, of course, the best with technology of any person he’d ever met. Who else would he have asked to help him?
He clicked the small apple in the corner. “There’s nothing that says printers.”
“Right. Click system preferences.”
“Where is that?”
“Steve,” Tony’s words were measured, the sound of patience being stretched as thin as it could go before it snapped. “Can I just do this for you?”
“No, because I’ll need to know how to do it.”
“You could Google this.”
Steve nodded. “Sure. Is Google under system preferences?”
Tony’s lips pressed into a thin line. “Now you’re just messing with me.”
organization method is my bujo. First, at the start of each month, I
make a list of all of the up coming events that I know of for that month
(I usually don’t know many events that are going to happen throughout
the entire month, at the very beginning; they kind of just pop up so the
lists are usually pretty short). On the next page, I draw that month’s
calendar. Above is an example of January’s monthly view.
For holidays (such as summer vacation, Christmas break, or spring
break), I will make a separate calendar for that. This way I can keep
track of how many days are left.
Next, I have my daily/weekly view. It is a list of everything I have
to do for that day, and I usually fit an entire week onto the two pages.
In the following example, I did not do Monday because it was already
Tuesday by the time I was able to make that week’s layout. To make
things easier, if there is an extremely big task I will break it into
⬜- This represents an unfinished task
⬛- This represents a finished task
△- This represents an important event
⚪- This represents a smaller task from an extremely big task that I have had to break down
An empty square (
) with a slash through it means I have started it, and an empty square with an arrow through it means it has been moved.
what house system do you prefer to use for interpreting charts?
The only house systems I ever use are Placidus, Porphyry, Koch, Equal, or Campanus, sometimes multiple different ones for the same chart. Placidus is the one I use most often because it’s the most accurate for natal charts, transits, and SRs, which are pretty much the only charts I look at these days.
Hello! I was wondering how often do you need to change you pen nibs? In the last 4 months I needed to change it twice! It's so frustrating, especially since it's not cheap. I got the classic plain wacom ones btw.
mm it depends on how hard you’ve been pressing. Honestly, I’ve lasted over 6 months on one nib, and i know people who’ve never had to change their nibs since they’ve started owning tablets. I recommend using less pressure on your tablet (since you could also damage the surface if you scratch it in), and also change the tip feel sensitivity in your settings!
For Window Users, search for Wacom and a window that kinda looks like the one below should pop up.
For Mac users, it’ll be in your System Preferences tab:
You’ll sort of lose line quality, but it beats having to replace your nibs, since buying replacement ones aren’t cheap. Make sure you also check your tablet pen holder, since it has a lot of replacement nibs in there!
Due to issues of wording for your tagging system, how would you prefer your followers tag their lakeshaming posts?
TBH, I’d prefer that everyone just used the same tag as me so that, a few weeks from now, someone who has no idea what’s going on stumbles into the rationalist community and finds that everyone is saying *appalled white person voice* THE N WORD!! *faints onto fainting couch covered in kale*
But, if you must find a PC alternative, might I recommend: “#this person of colour possesses a large hydrological feature”
So, how many of you feel that you are an Indigo Child?
“Indigo children, according to a pseudoscientific New Age concept, arechildren who are believed to possess special, unusual and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities.”

•Sexually are very expressive and inventive OR may reject sexuality in boredom or with intention of achieving higher spiritual connection. May explore alternative types of sexuality.
•Seek meaning to their life and understanding about the world. May seek this through religion or spirituality, spiritual groups and books, self-help groups and books.
•When they find balance they may become very strong, healthy, happy individuals.
Since I was really young, I have experienced ALL of these listed, and then some, but was never able to explain it. I remember someone mentioning to me when I was younger about the Indigo Children, and it was such a fascinating idea, but I never thought of it until now. It seems to make sense, and I’m really comfortable with the idea. I think being able to see and understand things that no one else couldn’t gave me anxiety, but after researching for a couple days, I feel comfortable.
How many more of you believe you’re Indigo Children? What experiences have you had? I would love to hear about it!
Confession from a seller who sometimes doesn’t answer PMs: I’m another ultra introvert. It’s so stupid, but talking to someone -even online- can be a big deal and majorly exhausting so I much prefer automated systems like eBay. I know it “literally only takes a minute to PM back” but in my bad times I’m just too scared, as moronic as that sounds. If I’m chatting with someone in a comment, it’s probably a friend iow not as draining.
So even if you see me posting pics and looking “not busy”, that is my recharge time. Sometimes talking openly to the word is easier than talking one on one with someone. I know it’s hard to believe in this day and age where simply having a cell phone means you’re expected to be at everyone’s beck and call at all hours, but I can be connected while also having periods of unavailability. If I haven’t yet agreed to your money, I’m not going to feel obligated by mere virtue of having an internet connection.
Another reason I hold off is because I want to make sure every aspect of the sale is perfect. If I don’t feel physically up to it I am not even going to attempt it. Sometimes I’m only mobile a few hours a day or on bed-rest for up to a week and I will not start a transaction unless I’m at a point where I can ship out immediately and give the best service possible. Illness is way too common of an excuse in this hobby and I’m absolutely not going to let mine become one. I haven’t even told my friends about it. The thing is, what can I say? “Sorry, check back later (do not insert explanation)”? or “Sorry it’s temporarily not for sale not because I’m unsure I want to sell it but just because I’m unwell so maybe later LOLZ” Would people really accept that answer? What happens if I forget to PM them back later and then someone else PMs me and I sell to that second person? Even if it’s an accident, doesn’t that make me an even bigger asshole? So I don’t feel it’s fair to ask a buyer to wait on me.
Disclaimer tho: This only happens when I get a message about a sale I posted months earlier (if it’s one I JUST posted then obviously I’ve got the energy and am good to go). If enough time passes I’ll be way too embarrassed to PM back (especially after reading all the confessions about how enraging no-answer sellers are) and won’t know what to say I probably wont. I’m really, really sorry =(.
Anyway, this all looks like a whiny sack of bullshit even to me lol, which is exactly why I just keep quiet. I really am sorry for being such a “lazy retard[ed]” shit as someone put it. I guess I had just assumed most people gave up and moved on after a day or two without answer.
His living quarters are quite nice and tidy! He likes to have everything organized and to know where everything is. When is s/o decided to live with him, it was a shocking to him at first. Of course he was happy that he’ll have his s/o around him all the time, but it kinda messed up his system. He adapted very quickly to the new situation and his s/o helped him make a whole new system! He prefers the newer system because his s/o helped him make it and he loves anything that has to do with his s/o.
