What You've Done Today - As the World Turns

I made the heinous, unforgivable mistake of watching like 5 minutes of a "vocal coach reacts to some song" video. The YT algorithm immediately started FLOODING my recommendations with reaction videos. It took me weeks of completely ignoring all reaction videos to mostly clear my YT recommendations of them (they still sneak in the odd one here and there).

I spent years never even looking at YT's "home page/top url" where all the rec. are. Which is why I suppose I'd not know about memes or whatever for months/years, haha.  I'd always just enter YT via my own channel URL and searchbar for stuff.  The tablet/phone is where I began finally looking at it sometimes.  I still generally avoid it on the PC.

Mercifully my "SJWs are RUINING _______" recommendations are gone.  Just endless Mass Effect 2 videos (clicking on them is a heavy risk.....but the priiiiiiiize)

That could be a revealing interesting (or predictable...) forum thread  - post a screenshot of the first 'page' of YT recommendation.  😛

...yes mine would have a lot of cats/animals.  And today, apparently 9+ videos of "(insert # of hours) soothing sounds of rain to sleep by" because I went to a bookmark of such a video to see if it still existed or should be deleted (the bookmark).

Whenever my YT recommendations page goes to ****, my go to move (now that I've caught on to YT's game) is to bring up the search bar and type in something along the lines of "cute capybara*", then I watch like 6 or 7 lovable animal videos in a row. Within a few days, my YT recommendations page becomes something I don't dread to see.

*insert your favorite animal

I wonder if Miranda's ass will be remastered?

3rd 10+hr workday in a row (if you're not counting weekends as breaks, then it's 10+hrs almost everyday for the last six weeks), and I am tired as ****.

I watched a few videos on nuTrek and now I keep getting recommendations for Trek bashing stuff. Problem is that most of it is culture war/libs ruin everything crap. I'm looking for an honest critique on what did and didn't work and why or why not and not rants about diversity or whatever intensity of they will not replace us. I get enough of that in the political thread.

Took day off, came back to a slew of Teams messages from one guy in India messaging me every hour with "Hiiii....".

Some dialect of it, yah. 😛

Status update : I have not managed to learn this song.  Also my dogs do not care for the song.

*My PC must be silent, silent, silent! Noctua, low GPU fan rpm's, etc etc.  SILENCE*

..medium/average summer-ish temps for two days where room goes over that because of computing etc.

*A/C on (general room), floor fan on (direct on self), air cleaning filter unit thingie on (because who knows if that AC has allergen molds somewhere after being off for months)*

....so much for silence.  😛
By the time I'm 60 I'll be turning A/C on at 72F or something.  Pfft.

I fell asleep on the couch... for 3 whole hours. Sure as hell I'm getting old.

Suffered the use support version of a belated April Fool's joke. 895 and 958 are not the same numbers, even if they look a bit similar. Good thing the user didn't ask for anything serious and nobody  deleted the wrong record and stuff. *cough*

Sigh.

Taking Sunny back to the doctor today. She has a disease called Cushings Syndrome. The version she has affects her pituitary system. She has been taking a drug called denemarin for years but it seems like it's no longer effective. We switched to another one a few weeks ago but I think it's making her sick. Hopefully the vet has other options.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Thanks, you guys are awesome! The DR is starting her on a new drug, Vetrotyl (something like that). It’s a cotisol blocker. It’s supposed to be taken with denemarin so now there will be two pills hidden in the peanut butter. I’m sure she won’t mind. She said we should notice a difference pretty quickly.

^ Hopefully the new drug mix works well.

Also, I wish the peanut butter (or any food method) thing worked with cats.  There's a reason most of the time vets give you cat medicine in a liquid form.   >_<:lol:
