I have been testing a Grammarly AI plugin and its suggestions to improve my writing often change the purpose of the statement.
For example, here is the AI's suggestion for improvement of the paragraph above:
"I always make sure to proofread my work before submitting it. It's important to catch any errors or typos that could negatively affect the quality of my writing. By taking the time to carefully review my work, I can ensure that it is polished and professional."
Another one of my regular reminders to double-check your work (or better yet, have someone else double-check it) before putting it out there.

I'm really struggling with current kernels and getting piardopc to get a live ardop session going for PAT/Winlink
I'm finding links like this: https://ardop.groups.io/g/users/topic/95790391#5113
Which basically say to go to an older version of Raspberry PI, on a old kernel.
There are suggestions on how to configure dsnoop, although I have no clue how to invoke it.
I just find myself not knowing where to go to work on this, while still staying up to date on kernel and patches.

That was very strange. I opened up #NYTGames and it told me I wasn’t subscribed to games. I have an All Access account. So I asked for help from their chat system. My god, how awful. The enter key either puts in new lines or it sends the message and you never know which, so you end up sending pages and pages of tries. LOL. How very awful. But it does prepare us for the dystopian nightmare to come. This, and more of it. SMH. #NYT #fail #funny

Oh, Slack have removed Split view - that's a great decision... NOT!
I used split view a lot so I can be in a thread whilst checking another channel - being in DevOps I need that as a lot of things can be happening at the same time.
Now they have changed it so if you move out of a channel the thread is automatically closed.
You now have to open another window to keep it open...
"Over and over and over again, she told him that... there was no evidence for the lies he was disseminating on stage.
"The election was not rigged, Mr. President," Collins told Trump at one point during the event. "You cannot keep saying that all night long."
Yet, he did.
...And CNN aired it all. On and on it went. It felt like 2016 all over again. It was Trump's unhinged social media feed brought to life on stage."

I want to say something about a new #accessibility feature being implemented in a thing I'm testing which fails the most important test: Is the thing being tested able to ensure that *everyone* can perceive the information the thing is supposed to convey? I mean how do you design something specifically for accessibility without making sure of this fundamental precept? I want to say I'll give up on this project. But I can't. The Cluelessness just amazes me.
