    @jws That's good. Put that alongside the latest bitcannon/OSX-to-Linux post for a good time.

      @sbeebe I think Chimp will.

        @jws You get used to it after a few years. ;)

            @jws Yeah, I've tweaked my config since then. I waffled on whether to use a subdomain and left behind some mess in my config. Sorry. :)

              The great thing about hanging around here 'til they pull the plug plus going nowhere else is that the continued dwindling of my stream is a natural weaning-off of my social media cravings. No withdrawals.

                  @doctorlinguist Not anywhere I actually lived, no, but tracking down panels elsewhere can be an adventure.

                    @doctorlinguist You have a hidden breaker panel? And you forgot about it? For shame. ;)

                      @doctorlinguist One of my brother's ex-wives was a Valentine's baby, and I have a cousin also born today. Kind of interesting, for sure.

                        @doctorlinguist Troubleshooting was kind of fun, and at its root, not much different from what I do now. Trouble is, it came with poor job stability and working conditions. I don't miss that at all.

                          Vivaldi makes it a little harder to see if you look at individual processes because of how it splits out different PIDs, where Firefox lands under one. But when I watch total memory consumption, there's little difference.

                            So it looks like heavy RAM use in the browser is just a reality I'm going to have to live with. I've been flipping back and forth between Vivaldi (Chromium-based) and Firefox, and there's really no daylight between them in my typical usage.

                              @adiabatic It's true that our COLA doesn't come near Sillyfornia, but I've got houses in my neighborhood going for $350-$400 sq ft, and according to Zillow, that's within spitting distance of LA.

                                @jws Not so much that as rent and $/sq. ft.

                                    @cgiffard The bigger picture, for sure, is as you describe. But we definitely had our share of petty infighting that, I think, limited uptake.
