I choose dignified and debonair.

Edit: Dammit, scratch that. Two chats going on simultaneously now, both with good looking girls....
And both with pictures up which at least indicate genuinely likeable characters. And they had to initiate it.

How the hell did that happen?

.......

I'm in real danger of forgetting to treat this as a bit of a lark. Especially as I now realise what a bane bland openers are. "Hi, how are you [HottyMcHotPants]*" is rather intimidating to answer for some reason.

*So that's not my name, in case you were wondering. It was my mum's second choice though.

I tried to make Tibetan butter tea for the first time, but I think it failed, because I could only taste the butter and salt in it, in a brine-y sort of way. Perhaps I didn't steep it long/strong enough. Or I used too much butter and salt. Or I'm just not used to it. The tea (from Tibet) was delicious in itself, though.

I'm sad and frustrated and angry at nothing in particular tonight. My workout sucked today and I'm trapped in an unfamiliar city for at least three more days. This is the most isolated I've felt since I was removed from the public school system and became a child hermit for a number of years.

Sounds like you should go exploring in the city a lil' bit.

Meanwhile, to keep the dating stuff all in one thread, I'm thankful to whoever recommended Bumble. Unlike eHarmony, there are actually people on here.

I should have done this years ago. My main problem was never with talking to people, just gauging whether they were into me and then quadruple guessing myself.

This whole match malarkey cuts that out, thank the Light.

Just, y'know, be careful... My own experiences with online dating have suggested that if a woman has taken to the net for romance, there's probably a reason for it.

Yep. I've filtered out the ones looking for "something casual" and have decided to chat for a while, escalate to Skype, and then see about meeting.

I'm sure there are reliable women on here - after all, they probably think the same about the men :P

My AV receiver+amp is less than 3 years old.  None of its HDMI inputs or outputs works.  And out of warranty (of course).

My brother-in-law met his wife someplace on the internet using a dating service. They are very happily married with two kids. Basically just be sure to make good decisions.

It's ok to go on a few dates and find out it won't work. You'd be remarkably lucky to find someone relationship-compatible on the first date.

Hitting a wall with The Jobseek, as there's precious few interesting infosec careers around the city I've moved into and usually ask upfront for several years' experience with exclusive technologies and programs. One interview is lined up for next week, but other prospects seem to have dried up.

My three years' experience may as well be none unless I want to go back to pushing security policy in the hollowed out husk of an obsolete data center somewhere, and I really have little patience for security theatre and business jargon which that particular line of work lives on. It's that, or desktop support with "security" taped on.

I'm getting moved out in a month and a half regardless of if I find work or not, so much as I have to watch the job boards day-by-day for new postings (and it's slow going), I've not much time to square away my business before I'm back to living off the good graces of my parents

I thought I'd start a blog, because fuck it nothing else I've tried has worked out.

Literally every domain/blog name I've tried is taken. The only way to get an untaken name is to just mash gibberish. All of the names I wanted lead to default themes, maybe with a blurb promising some kind of content, and 0 posts.

I kind of like some of the artists here, and it seems like this is probably somebody's thing. And it is close to not being funded. I like the idea of artists trying something interesting.

I've made the wonderful discovery that Microsoft has their own propriety music file - .wma

This doesn't work on non-Windows devices.

So now I've got to convert every fucking music file (bar four of them) into .mp3 files so I can actually use them on my phone. I have 3 minutes to dot his in before I have to head off, so that's not fucking happening. Looks like I'm going to spend some 20-30 minutes without anything to listen to beyond screaming children, assuming the doctor isn't running too late.
Why the hell does Microsoft do this? Rhetorical question, I know it's to try and encourage people to buy more of their product. I just hate them for doing it.

yup wma is useless, most converters are spamware. try fre:ac or freac (free audio converter), if they haven't patched it to shit yet. else I can provide a good version.

WMA is patent encumbered, and also can contain encryption to enforce DRM.

Free converters are a crapshoot.

The format itself is also just shit.
