    Friday's drink a lot of coffee day - February 21, 2020

    Or whatever drink you want. Except soda. No soda! (You know who I'm talking to here) It's a day I will not get through without copious amount of coffee, so drink stuff. Work. Do other things. It's finally Friday.

      I dread the xlabs in a way. I have made so much off of them over the past few weeks so I'm not complaining, but they are pretty miserable to do. I usually force myself to do them until I make goal then I just leave Otto running for the rest of the day and do what comes up that looks good.

      Sweetheart - I am starting to think I'm the only one who actually enjoys them. Lol. However I've made almost $1500 from them since they started posting again, so maybe that has something to do with it. I do generally look forward to when they post new batches though. Even working when I should be sleeping.

          Good morning!

          I think we got about 2" of snow but the roads are clear. I just have to get out and get that frozen crap off my car.

          Good Morning Everyone...kids are out of school today, which is nice. But, I have to go to a doctor's appointment this morning (routine), so I've got to get out anyway. Other than that, I'll be here.

          BTW, the moderators and I are playing around with a test of a new platform over the next couple of weeks, Discourse. If we decided to go this way, it'd be during December so as to have the smallest effect upon the membership. We'd have the same domain name, etc. But everyone would have to register for the new site I think. It's a much improved platform over vBulletin, at least it appears so thusfar. If anyone has any comments about this, be sure to mention them.

          The platform is more expensive, quite a bit more expensive (like 6X), but if we want a cutting-edge, next level type experience...it seems the way to go.

          live updating (no refreshing)
          persistent notifications
          emails you if someone mentions your name while you're not logged in
          mobile friendly
          etc.

            Why do we want "cutting-edge, next level type experience" for this forum? There are many platforms I cannot use because my computer is old --slack for example. I would hate for you to lose people for that reason. If you want to tinker with new stuff, build it but leave this and OTTO just like it is. If people want to buy new stuff, they can do so at a premium.

                That just because something is done fast is no reason for a rejection.

              #11
              I am getting so sick of requesters rejecting because I did something to fast. If the work is done right then don't reject me.

              Good Morning All. Happy Friday! Coffee's on and the cat's are particularly nefarious this morning. Little buggers. Wish you all a happy and productive day!

                I give you a ton of kudos because I cannot go even a day without soda without wanting to rip someone's face off. You made it this far, as long as you can keep up for the next week or so you should be in the clear.

                I didn't find it that bad...especially for 9.00. I use dual monitors so I put the stuff they wanted changed (letters to numbers, codes) into Notes and put on my smaller monitor.

              Hmm.. Let me think... So far 1) I've swept the kitchen around their food station only to find one of them laying in it when I returned with the dustpan. 2) Had to retrieve one from inside an upper cabinet after I opened it to get supplies. And 3) Cleaned up the living room rug after one of them (Not naming any names) had a yack attack all over the carpet.

              So yeah, I'm inclined to agree with you WhoCouldItBe. I think it's safe to assume you have cats as well considering your avatar. LOL.. I have 5.

                I have a cat that brings me toys while "bellyaching" in the middle of the night, when she has brought me her 3 red sparkly balls and her mouse if there are any loose socks in the house that are clean or any knit gloves they will be right by her toys. I woke up this morning to all her toys, a pair of gloves and a pair of my son's socks that I left in the laundry room. Mind you this cat also can open drawers. They are like toddlers I tell you. lol
