hey artists, as much as i appreciate your generosity, please please please please PLEASE don't send a full art file to someone until they have ***paid you.*** relying on the good will of others is admirable but also not the smartest move. there have been like 3 artists i've worked with the past couple of months that have sent me high-res versions of my art and an invoice after the fact. nothing would stop a shittier person from never paying you!!! get your 💰 before you send the final product!!

Oh good. Facebook gives advertisers your two factor authentication phone number.

<< They found that when a user gives Facebook a phone number for two-factor authentication or in order to receive alerts about new log-ins to a user’s account, that phone number became targetable by an advertiser within a couple of weeks. >>

Lily and I had a refreshment stop on the way home from our walk yesterday..

Can anyone recommend a succinct and well written intro to Javascript? I don’t want to be a developer, but I need to create some scripts for a tool that uses JS to create reports and some introduction to syntax etc would be useful..

@KDFrawg Well there’s a sight for sore eyes! How’re you Michael? :-)

p.s. Well found @larand !

‘Facebook labelled 'digital gangsters' by [UK] report on fake news’

“Facebook deliberately broke privacy and competition law and should urgently be subject to statutory regulation, according to a devastating parliamentary report denouncing the company and its executives as ‘digital gangsters’.”

Yup... those days. ;)

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.

Well, I’m now properly embarrassed at the incompetence and general stupidity of my country’s ‘leadership’ - even more so than the past 2+ years.

@emery *hug* Sorry to hear of your loss.*

*Nothing else I can think to say that won’t come over as trite at best, patronising at worst.. *hug*
