    Thanks my friend! With the way my luck has been running lately I didn't think I had a snowball's chance in the center of hell of winning. I was very pleasantly surprised to go to the thread this morning and read the news.

    Nah, don't need it. Pretty much done with contests. Won a ton of stuff over 2 years before finding something I actually liked. Stocked up on that and just lost interest in having to find a way to get rid of the junk they're giving away these days. It's all yours go get 'em.

    When I first started vaping I entered all the contests.
    Then they started with this Like me on FB or follow my tweet thing.
    And also I do not want much vape new gear now.
    If I see something in a contest that I am actually interested in I will enter.

    That's pretty much me - except I still like to experiment

    The problem is, I feel guilty when I win because I know a lot of people need new gear and can't really afford to experiment

    Does VU seem really slow today...? Or is it just me and/or my internet connection? The lag is just dreadful; I'm considering rebooting the PC, but that's very time-consuming in its own right, and if it's just VU that's lagging, would be pointless.

    Not sure what it was, though I did need to update FF, and it seems to be going a bit better now. Also I had to uncheck "allow acceptable ads" on ABP, because there is no such thing, all ads slow down page loading. I'm a donator, I shouldn't have to slow down my browser with stupid ads. But I do need to send VU a bit more, it's been a while since I did.

    Hmm. Apparently the new FF has utterly abandoned Ajax support, because I can no longer view my alerts just by mousing-over, but have to click it, just like in chrome. If that's the case, then I have no more reason to use FF at all, since that Ajax support was my only reason for using FF for the forum.

    Firefox Quantum doesn't work well after first install but after a few updates get pushed through it works better.

    Just now... can't say I really mind it. but i very much mind the loss of ajax, and the quick n dirty mouseovers to activate the Alerts and quicks views in the New Posts list. I may have to do a full system rollback to get back v56.

    Ok, TVs over, dishes done, ejuice made, and I finally got back to my PC to see my recovery back to the last restore point on 11/29 has finally finished and restarted, and I have my v56 of FF back. And before I started the restore, I left Mozilla some nasty feedback about what I thought of their lack of Ajax support in v57; they must think we're all a bunch of luddites who won't know the fucking difference, but I GOT NEWS for THEM! Having a 64-bit browser does NOT make up for missing Ajax.

    Some of my addons seem to be missing, hmm. Must investigate.

    Never knew that.
    Surprised he made it out of Texas alive.
    They take their defeats seriously.

    Doesn't Alaska have monuments at Attu and Kiska, in the Aleutian Islands?
    And require school children to make a pilgrimage there?

    Sadly, few Americans even know the Japanese occupied Alaska islands and oppressed Aleut people during the war

    Yep many still tout the never invaded thing.
    They also forget the War of 1812 it seems..
    People 'remember' whatever supports their views.

    Yikes! Glad you're ok! I saw a thing on weather.com about a usually-busy road that might as well be closed, as it's completely deserted -- one of the interstates in the Los Angeles area... thx to the evacuations. Those people are not going to have a very merry xmas at all. :( I thought it usually rained in southern CA in the winter.

    The roads really aren't bad; snow is actually pretty easy to drive in, if you refrain from *sudden* starts or stops. My biggest concern is a) people are already idiots; b) idiots are trying to drive while txting or otherwise looking at their phones; and c) it doesn't do this very often here, so it's very novel, very distracting to those who aren't used to it -- and I know from my own experience in MI, when snow is falling, it looks like things are "coming at you" when you're driving, which very unnerving. It really doesn't matter how good a driver you are, if there are TOTAL FUCKING MORONS out there getting distracted by it, it's GOING TO BE a problem.
