Gah, what's going on with tumbler. They claim that due to EU privacy laws, I can no longer get past the boilerplate code unless I enable cookies. And even after I do that, they ask me to log in. That's not how it ever used to work, guys, and these changes aren't helping to make the internet more open and free.

My solution: stop viewing anything on tumblr.

Even if it is, adding extra "ingredients" to food (with different intentions) like that is very common in some places.

Wouldn't have thought the Batmobile is respecting the law like that.

They've started labeling certain blogs as "unsafe" and in order to see those you need to verify (as much as anything can be verified on the internet) that you're an adult. That requires having a logon and cookies.
Not "unsafe" blogs don't require either. I'm pretty sure that a blog with "pornhub" in the title is going to get auto-flagged as unsafe.

There was no captcha confirming I'm not a robot, or any questions about pop music in the 1990s proving I'm over 18. They just wanted me to accept their cookie policy.

I'm not sure logging on would have taken me to the target blog though, the url was just the front page. Maybe there was something in the session cookie I took, or packed into a hidden form element; I didn't check that. It didn't seem worth my time to go much further with it.

It's so hot here... Thinking about adding a watergun to the Pyra? A so called "squirt PYRA" ... or SPYRA!

On a somewhat related note, anyone know of someone that carves small grave markers in a style similar to those in early colonial American styles (not sure how it compares to what was going on across the water at the time)? I found one person, but I would like to have another option that isn't me trying to Dremel it out myself. Just trying to be prepared, and I want to enjoy my death stuff while I am alive.

  • The name of Pyra leads you to assume considerable responsibility and to prefer to work independently, without direction or interference from others because you have very definite ideas of your own.
  • Your mind is quick to comprehend and you can be depended upon to do any job well.
  • Because you tend to be somewhat of a perfectionist, you might insist on doing too many things yourself instead of delegating jobs to others who might do less satisfactory work.
  • This name does make you quite direct and straight-to-the-point.
  • Your verbal expression does not reflect your inner thoughts and feelings, and you often wonder why people react to what you say.
  • The influence of this name does not promote the friendship that you desire or the relaxation and naturalness you should enjoy with people.
  • It is a name that makes you far too practical and serious-minded, and makes it difficult for you to act with spontaneity.
Thus:
Work independently=works offline
can be depended upon=does not lockup or spontaneously reboot.
doing too many things yourself=CPU does not delegate to GPU much
Is misunderstood when SD card can not be read. It's not Pyra's fault, it's the cards!


Also, this series had 70 episodes, if you watch 1 episode each day, its just over 2 months:
