For over 3 years with this company, I've been stuck with an old hand-me-down 16GB Mac. The need for 32GB was known even when I joined the company. "Don't worry, this is only temporary." Now the things the company wants us to do go beyond 32GB. The bigshot software engineers got 64GB machines last year. They couldn't be happier.

Today I get an email: GOOD NEWS! You're scheduled for a NEW 32GB Mac! Even better, it's got an M1 chip, so it won't even do the things my 16GB will do. And they expect me to go to the new machine within a week. And they expect me to hand over my old machine at the same time I pick up the new one. And the dork in IT assigned to me is a condescending little Hitler straight out of a SNL skit.

Just when you think you've seen it all.

Uhg, that's the worst. I would love to have a new 64GB M2 Macbook for video editing, but not at the cost! We just provided a quote for two of these machines for a client of ours. I advocated on behalf of the users as no one seemed the understand that a 16GB RAM Macbook cannot do some of the creative projects that this client performs -- a 32GB with an even better processor MIGHT be able to work but still isn't ideal and the users wouldn't be able to do the job efficiently. I had to provide screenshots of my personal PC doing the types of work and struggling with a 3GHz processor, 32GB RAM, and 8GB Graphics card.

I've been trying to get on Medicare Part D for the past couple years and it FINALLY got approved!

You know that insulin Deal Joe just got passed?

This means I will finally be able to buy good, proper insulin for the first time in nearly 20 years and you all have absolutely NO idea hoe much of a life change this may very well mean.

I'm so excited I'm damn near in tears.

freddyV: Got my first haircut since March


I'm scheduled to have a little haircut/trim to even up the back and take care of split ends after work today. It's been just about exactly a year since that was last done. And a beard trim of course, which is normally the only thing I have my barber do these days as I grow out my hair. It was kind of weird leaving the house with no product in my hair since I basically have to go straight from work to the barber.

And tomorrow is a holiday for me so three day weekend on the horizon and will be "camping" this weekend before the craziness of work on Monday commences.

NEW YORK (AP) - CNN has canceled its weekly "Reliable Sources" show on the media after three decades on the air, and said Thursday that its host, Brian Stelter, is leaving the network.


"Reliable Sources," and its host, appear to be the first prominent casualties in CNN's effort to become less confrontational politically, a priority of Chris Licht, who became the network's chairman and CEO in the spring, and his boss, David Zaslav, head of the Warner Bros. Discovery parent company.

Stelter has written a book, "Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth" and been critical of Fox News, making him a frequent target of CNN's conservative critics.

Licht has made it known internally that he's not interested in conflict between CNN and Fox News on the network. The CNN "New Day" anchor Brianna Keilar had also attracted attention for detailed critical pieces on Fox, but they have stopped since Licht took over.

CNN has seen its reputation tumble dramatically among Republican and conservative viewers, some of it because of former President Donald Trump's relentless attacks, but also because of pointed political viewpoints expressed by its personalities. New management has been seeking to turn down the temperature.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday announced criminal charges against 20 people for illegally voting in 2020, the first major public move from the Republican's controversial new election police unit.

The charges mark the opening salvo from the Office of Election Crimes and Security, which from its conception drew widespread criticism from Democrats and voting rights groups who feared the unit would serve as a political tool for the governor.

DeSantis said the people charged were convicted of murder or a felony sexual offense and therefore exempt from a constitutional amendment that restores voting rights to some felons. He said most of those charged were from Broward, Miami-Dade or Palm Beach counties, all Democratic strongholds. He released few details.

The 20 people were among more than 11 million Florida voters who cast ballots in the 2020 election.

"They did not go through any process, they did not get their rights restored, and yet they went ahead and voted anyways," DeSantis said at a campaign-style event in Fort Lauderdale before cheering supporters. "That is against the law and now they're gonna pay the price for it."

DeSantis, an ascendant Republican and potential 2024 presidential candidate, pushed the state legislature to create the election police unit to address voter fraud concerns that have proliferated in the GOP following former President Donald Trump's false claims that his reelection was stolen.

Voter fraud is rare, typically occurs in isolated instances and is generally detected. An Associated Press investigation of the 2020 presidential election found fewer than 475 potential cases of voter fraud out of 25.5 million ballots cast in the six states where Trump and his allies disputed his loss to Democratic President Joe Biden. DeSantis has previously praised Florida for carrying out a smooth election in 2020.

Ah, yes. Side with the fascists.

Being FOX-lite isn't going to win a single voter and will only drive away moderates and liberals who still watch that channel.
