Noteworthy Tweet:

The law and the culture shout, “you’re special” while the labor market whispers, “no, we mean short bus special”

I do, indeed, see that it’s blocked, Mac; thanks for asking.

Addendum(b)

Just logged-in to PB; now they want $400 / year so I can post images to third-party accounts.

It’s their servers and they’re a private business; they have a right to do that. (Although a heads-up would have been nice.)

And I have a right to tell them to kiss my hairy, Hebraic ass.

UPDATE: I can no longer even access my images. You can keep ’em, you motherfuckers.

I suspect this will go poorly for PhotoBucket. And it should; seems like nobody was given any prior notice.

That appears so, Sven.

Thanks for the info, Mac; I’ll fuss with it later.

This is a profoundly shitty move on PB’s part.

I feel sorry for all of the small businesses which are being forced to pay what amounts to ransom.

Not to mention what they’ve just done to countless billions of blog posts, forums, etc.

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Sven!

Nothing says, “Happy Friday” quite like a raccoon in your toilet.

I was able to login to PB, but changing my email address to one that actually exists was a pain. It would appear that their servers are overloaded.

Hai, Paddy!

Mac --

Minor synchronicity which didn’t register earlier this morning: Jim teh Roofer’s grandson is named Blake.

Question for Mac -- I need to cut some 3/8″ slots in some 0.0625 steel (leg extensions for an industrial work bench). The slots will be about 2″ long. Without access to a milling machine, what method would you recommend?
I’ll probably tackle this in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks, Mac! The legs have a square “C” cross-section, so I can pretty easily clamp some backing material to it. Enough of the kitchen cabinets have been moved so that I can now reach some of my tools. The calipers tell me the metal is somewhere around 0.08 inches -- hard to tell with the powder coated finish. I’ve got a couple of sets of needle files, some larger small files, and a dremel tool. I just need to pick up some cutting discs. I’ve picked up a few stones over the years, as well. I was hoping there was a better answer than drilling multiple holes and spending a lot of time filing away the waste, and you’ve pointed me in the right direction.
Thanks again!
