Hello. Help a dummy, please. When Toady talks about monthly sales hovering around 14k in the latest report - is that # copies sold, or $ profit?

I think it's copies sold upon reading context, but can't you just ask here?

I'm sure they'd be happy to see you in the upper boards.  :D

What are you trying to suggest about us lower-boarders, eh?

That there's only pathos, here, presumably. That's not people, that's a person, yeah?

When I arrived at Bay 12, I was Il Palazzo. I was young. I endeavoured to brave the human interactions of the upper board. Those waters were stormy, and the struggle took its toll.
Eventually, gradually, I percolated to lower boards. There, in the profundity of the forum, I have found communion with Pathos. All is clear now. The seas are calm.

Pathos knows itself.

Do you think flies evolved to be annoying to exploit irritated creatures, or did the entire animal kingdom adapt to find them annoying?

Kinda the second, turns out that some of the stuff flies do; eg. laying eggs in open wounds, ruining your food sources, is really frowned upon by the whole "Well *I* don't want maggots hatching out of my food and/or flesh!" crowd.

It isn't that much of an issue these days for most of the world, but pre-refrigerator flies getting in your food could be really bad.
---
Also while not that big an issue; random bugs flying flying around you is also something worrying for a number of other reasons ranging from "oh lawdy they gunna sting me" to "that's the bug that shoots stink out its butt at me if I get close", many of which are good reasons for animals and peoples to evolve instinctual wariness for flying bugs in general.

E: Flies have been around ~250 million years. Human's dislike of them almost certainly goes back long before humans or even mammals first came into being.

*side eyes worries of bee extinction* Well... yes, but also no. Human consumption wouldn't be nearly enough to curtail the population of the bug species that are winning the total biomass competition, but our chemical warfare attempts and various environmental atrocities might manage in the end.

Most of the bugs will outlive humanity in the war of humanity to poison everything.

The cat is being clingy today, and batting at household objects. In the 8 years we've had him, he hasn't really done either of those things. Why might this be?
He was also more insistent than usual about getting inside the house. There's no bad weather outside, which is what he usually runs inside for.

Anyone know how to block Twitter on Windows 10?

I've tried editing the system32 hosts file to no avail. These are the last three lines:

   127.0.0.1   www.twitter.com
   127.0.0.1   twitter.com
   127.0.0.1   https://twitter.com

I've tried with the indents, without the indents, with spaces, without spaces, with hashtags, without hashtags. Twitter just keeps going through without causing the browser to try and connect to the local host.

EDIT: Or another solution that's not as easy to fix as clicking a button, I know what I'm like with this.

I also tried adding ::1 [address] under each line, to no avail.
