Crimbo posting here.

Decided not to read a book today.

Read a good note the other day that pointed out that one thing the Facebook has deprived is of is those old boutique sites with a message board or whatever that were great. Like this one!  So I'm considering pulling back from those and doing more of my merely expressive posting on sites like this. Facebook has really turned out to be a bit more evil than I presumed - I had a low opinion that I was willing to live with.

I might even be forced to write in whole paragraphs again and develop my thoughts.

I read a Jeeves book and Many Waters on this Christmas trip. I was going to read another today but didn't get around to it.

We played Dos, a new variant of Uno. It is important to read the rules carefully because any mistake radically alters game play. I trounced the opposition.

I've been fiddling with Containers and  Temporary Containers in Firefox. Seems nice. I have to log in a bit more often but with a password manager that's no biggie. Also trying the move to Firefox on my phone. And some other de-googling, a little.

It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

I made a conscious decision to stop using it a while back...I was going to say around Thanksgiving, but I see my last post was October 31st and my last reply was November 11th. 

I've been somewhat surprised how quickly I got used to not checking it.  I am tentatively planning on deleting everything on Jan 1, though I need to figure out what to do about those sites I "signed in with Facebook" like my WaPo subscription.

I've been back a few times, started to make some angry replies and then realized that's what's wrong with the fucking thing.

I think if you just deactivate... by gzt (2.00 / 0) #5 Wed Dec 26, 2018 at 11:45:19 PM EST
... rather than delete you can still do the "log in with..." thing.

however, I've had a similar issue re: logging in with the googles. I've been decoupling those lately. Generally the way it works is this: you have some e-mail on file presumably (if not: get an e-mail on file), then you disconnect your Google, then you say to reset your password and it sends an e-mail to your address to do so. I presume it's the same way with Facebook.

Dos -- yeah, the rules aren't exactly clear on a few things.. It's definitely more complicated than uno (so littlest can't quite grasp dos, but will school you at uno).

Many Waters -- as in the l'engle book ?

Yes to both by gzt (2.00 / 0) #7 Thu Dec 27, 2018 at 10:50:22 AM EST
The rules really could have been written a little more clearly.
