Well, I *used* to have a crapload of stardust... Dragging my high-IV critters up to be effective against raid bosses has definitely put a damper on that, though. Even with raiding and the triple stardust rewards from the current water festival event, I've dropped from about 375K to 128K since I started playing #PokemonGo more regularly again. And I still have a lot of powering up to do.
LB: it me.
I've said before that the first digital assistant I can ask "When is the next Shatterer?" (a Guild Wars 2 world boss) and get an intelligible response back from is the winner of the race. If I build an iOS 12 shortcut that uses a manually-created workflow to give me an answer, does that count?
Why is it I can manage to land a dozen great curveballs in a row on a regular basis in Pokemon Go, but when I get a research task that's "make two nice throws in a row" I suddenly turn into the world's greatest fumble?
Ah yes, my favorite kind of warning: the "we can't be assed to actually make our application robust" warning.
If you say your software is "easy to use" and the first step begins with "In NPM..." or "Install a Ruby development environment...", it is not easy to use.
Let the record show that I called the talking comic book koala in today's #WWDC keynote almost a month ago. https://twitter.com/alahmnat/status/993961275284586496
(Let the record also show that I think Apple's animoji/memoji stuff is silly fun, but I'd rather have advanced facial recognition that lets people be furry in AR than advanced facial recognition that's used by police forces to further profile brown people.)
Spent all morning thinking today was Thursday. Long weekends always throw me off so bad...
Of all the 80s things that have gotten big-budget theatrical reboots, I can't believe nobody has touched DinoRiders.
I've gotten so used to the Kroger brand pop tarts that the "real" Kellogg brand ones taste like communion wafers that have been rolled in strawberry jelly.

For the record, things like this: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Qe116icy7zq9rx7c are why FOSS's claims to be "better" frequently irritates me. Decade-old bugs that have gotten committee'd out of ever being fixed, and which you can't really fix yourself without signing yourself up for perpetual ongoing maintenance work keeping your tweak compatible with new versions, or going through the interminable hell of getting your chosen solution accepted by the project's steering committee.
