Isn't your avatar you?

Yes - it's a digitized version of a sketch of me drawn by Richard Ball way back in the 1990s. :)  It just took me a while to remember it and realize that must be your source.

I am morphing into a stick figure, even as I write.

:lol: Everything looks different when you're a stick person.

Of course, that may be Makhabesh's mother, but I think that she wears bifocals. 

:lticaptd:I wouldn't let her hear you say that!

Indeed it did. Voice recognition, proximity sensors, remote monitoring...the works.
Kick in the butt for me selecting the top-of-the-line tech (at the time we built the house 3 years ago) for the house.
🙄

Shouldn't have done that...

I'm guessing that it was for telling it to automatically turn the temperature up or down.  The same way my brother-in-law's wife tells Alexa to set a timer for something in the oven....  

Me, I used to use the built in (but manual) timer on the clock on the wall ovens.  When it bit the dust I bought an old fashioned manual kitchen timer.  The only thing that isn't good for is when I make pizzelles because I have to time those out in seconds -- for that I used to use the timer feature on my digital watch (nowadays, I'd have to use the timer feature on the clock app on my phone instead).

If they're gonna keep pushing for more stuff like that, why don't they make things that are actually USEFUL -- like automatically sensing when a tray of cookies is done enough without having to check every couple of minutes?  Of course that presumes that the oven gauges are accurate enough to monitor that 325° F is ACTUALLY 325° F (our ovens have always run a little on the hot side to begin with, and I'm nearly always only using the top oven on the convection setting (which means dropping the tempurature setting about 25° lower than what the recipe calls for, and also estimating a shorter time frame).

I agree, they could make these items do more than spy on our every spoken word and blast our email and online accounts with targeted advertising for things we care nothing about.
At this point, I don't know where I stand.
I make my living off of the digital world...but also despise it and the have a deep-seated hatred toward the worldwide mess it has created.
I have deleted as many digital items from our home as possible, but I cannot get rid of the cable-internet box, the alarm system, cameras or the electronic stove.
Wife also won't let me get a wood stove for the house...bleh.
I'll keep pressing...but lets get the thread back on topic.
Enough of my digital misanthropy and technophobia...lol.
:lol:

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
