The thing is, they're all nice and comfortable people to be around, I just don't fit in at all. Anything they like, I don't, and vice versa.

[@Delta: If you have to be around people, then one good thing is to try and find something they take a detailed interested in, and find out more about it, find questions to ask, so you have something to talk about. Do you have any movie or anything you can compare your situation to? Like Matilda (1996) perhaps? HTH a bit.]

... I have the bigger Twitter-Button .... which works

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.”
Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

Yeah I already saw that article, and if that wasn't bad enough. Researchers Discover Two Major Flaws in the World’s Computers. One of them is the same one, the other, is a little more problematic.

Intel Spectre Meltdown

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... ducts.html

-Is this a bug in Intel hardware or processor design?
No. This is not a bug or a flaw in Intel products.
These new exploits leverage data about the proper operation of processing techniques common to modern computing platforms, potentially compromising security even though a system is operating exactly as it is designed to.
Based on the analysis to date, many types of computing devices — with many different vendors’ processors and operating systems — are susceptible to these exploits.

very cold US East coast & Canada

Don’t pirate or we’ll mess with your Nest, warns East Coast ISP

https://www.engadget.com/2018/01/05/pir ... -the-cold/

Internet slowdowns at home aren't just annoying anymore.
They can be hazardous to your health or dangerous if you're in an area that freezes.
.....
Bandwidth throttling for customers in those areas who have connected thermostats could mean the difference between sickness and health, or even life and death.
Seems like an extreme punishment for any allegedly downloaded 'Game of Thrones' cam rips.

@garry; I'm in Eastern Canada. Last couple weeks have been record cold, and more snow than usual. But this week it is thawing.

Wow, I for sure am no longer interested in IoT

What's on my mind: How do I get this calculator to feed results to my PC? Doesn't anyone ever wish for something like this? You might say, use the number pad on your keyboard. But I like the feel of this, and can add many numbers much easier. Or is there external calculators (or just number pads with similar layout/hardware?) like this that can connect with some standard interface, USB, etc?

I love calculators. I'm no math genius, far from it, but I love having a calculator around. I bought a bunch of $1 calculators from Wal-Mart just so I could put them around the house so they would be handy. Most of them go unused but I've used the one in the kitchen a few times to do some food portion and recipe math. When I was younger I had one of those Casio calculator watches. Stupid looking and mostly unused but I never had a problem calculating the tip when I was wearing it.
