Not that I think dad probably entered whichever is right, wrongly, but that's exactly what mom said when she walked into their kitchen with the phone lol....meanwhile my wifi actually doesn't work. However, plugging in with ethernet does.

Think of it as family time.

Hug with a plastic shield on my face. Go flush out your sinuses with a netipot as many times as you can stand it! Those things really work.

Domestic disturbance at the hotel tonight. The second time I've ever had to call the State Troopers. I guess having a quiet night where nobody was an asshole was too big of an ask?

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I realized about a month or so ago that nobody in my house watches TV anymore, my kids are all into Netflix, Crave TV & youtube, all I ever watch is the local news in the morning & evening. So I canceled my cable (saving about $50.00 a month) and bought a digital antenna for about $30.00 at Canadian Tire and I can get about 8 local stations.

Except you can't watch TV and have someone use the computer at the same time! The antenna is over 4 feet away from the computer monitor, but even so, if you turn on the monitor you lose all TV reception! How can my monitor be generating that much interference! If I go looking for a new monitor is there any "equipment rating" that would let me know how much electromagnetic radiation a piece of equipment produces?

It sucks when you still like someone and they're understanding towards you, but they hold a view you find detestable.

I put my antenna in the attic - good reception and no interference. Thumbsup

My Bell DSL download is about 16mb/s while upload is a ridiculous 0.7 mb/s. About 6 months ago I went unlimited, before that I had a 50gb(?) cap. Ping is okay, but it depends on location being pinged...

Oh, and I guess the ISOhunt shutdown is another of my 1st world problems.

Damn Canadian internet.

Food gets stuck in my tonsillectomy scars. It's been decades. Thankfully my tongue is long enough to scoop it out. But still.
