Question for those with iPhones/iPads using scheduled Night Shift

I think it was iOS (or iPad OS as the iPad version is now called) 14 that introduced -- supposedly -- popup keypad entry for scheduling Night Shift instead of being limited to the virtual scroll wheel. Does anyone else find that it doesn't work? I observe the same behavior as this person on their iPhone - that it cuts off the input and closes the keypad after you've typed one or two digits and it's impossible to type a complete time. The same behavior makes it impossible to correct such an error and I don't seem to be able to target entering the hour or minutes specifically. (Scroll-wheeling works as it always did.) The non-answer from the Apple "specialist" there was irritating. This entry was crossposted from https://arethinn.dreamwidth.org/2763110.html, where there are comment count unavailable comments.

Not to be entitled white suburbanite on main but for the love of fuck could we ban gas leafblowers in this city? Or how about just ban running three of them simultaneously as the gardeners across the street appear to be doing at the moment?

(NB, the property is not large with lots of grounds or anything. Our lot sizes aren't big enough to be described as even fractions of an acre, unless you're being silly on purpose -- ours is about .17 acre.)

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the United States economy into an economic crisis. Across the country, more than 10 million Americans are unemployed, 14 million renters are behind on payments, and 29 million adults – and at least 8 million children – are struggling with food insecurity. Because of pervasive systemic racism and inequality in our economy, the burdens of this economic crisis are hitting communities of color and other underserved families hardest. One in ten Black workers and one in eleven Latino workers are unemployed. Navigating through the current crisis and emerging stronger requires immediate action to provide equitable economic relief to working families everywhere.

Dear every restaurant on Doordash:

Please do like we discovered our local sushi restaurant did and include a $0 menu item that says "no utensils or napkins" (and please expand this to include "no condiment packets"). I feel this will stand a much bigger chance of actually being noticed and heeded than our pleas in the special instructions.

Sincerely, me and this pile of plastic forks. This entry was crossposted from https://arethinn.dreamwidth.org/2761357.html, where there are comment count unavailable comments.

Yesterday [personal profile] enotsola read out something to me from Twitter that referred to "President Biden" and after a moment's disorientation I was just like,



Can I stop asking for a damage report every single morning now? Not saying there's nothing left to be done - it's very much "now the real work begins". But can we have terrible things maybe only once a week? This entry was crossposted from https://arethinn.dreamwidth.org/2760963.html, where there are comment count unavailable comments.
