We're starting to watch the animated Clone Wars series by recommendation.

We're into season two and I'm finding the episodes a pretty mixed bag of good to weak, creative to almost embarrassingly derivative (speaking as someone who's done both as well).

We hear it picks up in season three. Time will tell.

Can anyone who does (anywhere from amateur to professional) animation suggest a (Windows) program that a (smart) ten-year-old kid could grasp to at least start doing some basic animation with?
Cheap is good. Free is better. :)

We like that catchy new Got Your Laundry commercial for LG washers, with the adorable baby claps and all, but then found out that it's a parody of Got Your Money by Ol' Dirty Bastard, and upon checking out THOSE lyrics, I don't think we'll be humming the tune around the house any more. 😳

If you are a person of discerning taste and thus enjoy The Oatmeal and Exploding Kittens, etc., then you'll probably enjoy the Kitty Letter app, available on both Android and iPhone.

The big antivirus lie of 2021. Apparently virus makers have figured out to target the antivirus software systems themselves, and because they have privileged access -- they can read emails before they hit your inbox, read network input before it comes into your computer, read data before it gets written to or read from files, and so on -- being able to infect the antivirus system itself means the hacker gains privileged access to your computer. youtube.com/watch?v=EqI-7w8AYG

Congratulations to Canada on succeeding in getting at least one dose of vaccine to 70% of their population! A lofty achievement which the US will likely not ever meet. In the US, when you hear the states and Biden administration bombastically celebrating reaching 70%...they mean 70% of adults. HINT, a lot of the population is under 18. The US is only at 56.4% overall by the same yardstick as Canada.

oh, cool, the Cleveland baseball team changed their name to the guardians!!!!
