As long as you don't involve the books in the intercourse....

I mean, nine floors and all the various 'quiet rooms', bathrooms, staircases, elevators, and utility rooms is a lot of rooms.
No no no, he said story, not storey. It was a library with only 9 novels in it.

Very small library. Mostly just textbooks.

Or rather, if you do, just go ahead and tear up some useless pages or something, say you accidentally damaged them, and pay for a replacement, rather than leave a surprise for the librarians to eventually deal with. Water damage and its equivalents are among the worst and hardest to deal with things that can happen to a book, so give appropriate reparations for anything you inflict on them. Please bibliofuck responsibly.

My uni library had a 12 floor open atrium and a diving team!

... at least until they put up the big metal screens

In the library? Isn't that noisy?
Not as much as you'd think. I know of one that has to periodically hire on extra security to root out a persistent prostitution ring.

Eesh, conflicted. Caravan Palace will be doing a show within relatively reasonably reachable distance, at the end of october. On the one hand I could afford to go and I fucking love those folks' music. On the other it would entail a five-ish hour drive... and dealing with driving in Atlanta. The probably 200-ish buck pricetag (tickets, overnight stay, gas) and five hour drive isn't that bad, but.... Atlanta. Fucking Atlanta. Fucking Atlanta traffic. Atlanta traffic. Atlanta traffic is fucking miserable. Super miserable. So. Conflicted. I literally add hours to drives to avoid Atlanta and its traffic, but. Caravan Palace ;_;

Could you take a flight to Atlanta and use Ubers or whatever to get around?

You merely adopted the traffic.  I was born in traffic.  Molded by traffic.  I didn't see a > 30 min drive until I was a man.

In some kind of theoretical sense, but a flight ticket on top of everything would tip financial concerns way over my line. Quick check suggests that would somewhere between double and triple the cost involved, even discounting gas et al.

Right now I'm probably just... going to get their new album or something. Maybe an extra copy of whatever has Dragons on it to donate to the library. Y'know, support without having to contend with Atlanta. Maybe I'll get frisky between now and then, I'unno.

It's atlanta.  that's a major transport hub (hence the traffic).  If you dont want to drive, perhaps a bus or train ticket?

What is your city of departure?

That's... actually a thought. Tallahassee's probably the main option for departure (panama city and dothan are roughly similar trips, but panama's still kinda' rekt), and there's definitely a bus route involved. Be a bit more complicated logistics wise since I'd need dropoff/pickup, but still. I'll have to look into it a bit more.

So, I am expecting a shiny new yellow print head in the mail.  Ebay says it should get delivered today.  I get a bit excited, since I've been working on getting this abused printer working for basically a month now.

I look at the tracking log...  Then I wonder what the fuck the postal service is fucking doing.

Pretty prairie has 600 residents.  I'm not giving my name or address.  Besides, malicious actors already know my rough geographical locality, through a combination of advert tracking scripts, unique browser identification tags, and IP address regionalization.

The advert companies are NOT very careful about how they transmit the data the collect.  They (malicious actors) dont need to do a lot of work to know such things. Why do you think computer security people scream bloody murder about the advert industry and its lax practices?

I'd still like to think that none of the regulars have malicious intent, and that nobody would think to dig in b12 unless they're allready way onto a user. I mean what are the odds someone here wants the printer more badly than you  :D.

And besides, there is just too many tricks, for example: there is a good chance that if we download pics from the cool things thread some of them will contain geolocalisation data that the phone "kindly" left in there. Tbh I redid a screeny of the latest pic bc I'm that paranoid.
