the size of a dime in the middle of Lake Michigan.

a dime is the same size no matter where it is. Also none of my chargers are as big around as a dime so you shouldn't have too much of a problem with it;P
"An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages."This isn't THE FORUM, but it is a form of public forum. A message board for discussion. If I watched you this would show up on MY home page. It's the same thing as posting in the forum except it's on your wall.Also your metaphors suck. That's what prompted the original post but I was going for more sassy than mean.So hopefully you've learned something about the internet and the RT site today!Protip: RT site is a bit broken in that even private posts give public notifications when people "like" it.Also facebook isn't private at all. They'll disclose all of your posts, images, and information to anyone who can make up a half-assed excuse as to why they need it.
No, it isn't. THE FORUM is a public forum. Clearly the entire point of this conversation has been lost on you. But if you grasped any of the concepts behind my metaphors, I assure you I won't make this mistake of leaving my doors unlocked again.The next time I want your input however, I'll be sure to post a thread about my shoddy laptop charger.Now, seriously, go away or I am going to block you.
Your journal IS A PUBLIC FORUM. You can make it private by clicking the private button.
Last time I checked, I didn't post on a public forum. I posted on my journal. On my profile. This isn't community interaction. This is social media pretending to be a community forum.In a community, you don't just walk into your neighbors house. Even if the doors are unlocked. You knock, you introduce yourself, you might make a friend.These profiles are our personal homes on this site. You invade mine because that's just how shitty its gotten here. If I wanted this crap, I'd have made a twitter six years ago. Now, how about you go somewhere with yourself so I don't have to block you? There still might be a day that you get the chance to do this the right way, and it'd be a shame to take that opportunity away from you.
also: Not what RT is? Barbara was hired specifically because random people all liked her posts and commented on her journals. She was like, #1 in the community along with having the skills to be a community manager.RT was built off of the community interaction
Asking for privacy when you post on a public forum? It's a lot to ask for. Easy to solve though, don't post publicly!
Except that isn't what RT is. This community used to have a certain level of respect for one another and their privacy. It didn't use to be, "that's just the internet bro". We used to be people that treated other like freaking people. This ever growing move towards facebook is ruining this site and everything that made it special. What happened to the unspoken rule of making friends with people on the forums before going to their profile and annoying them? Because, let's face it, that's what you did here. Have some tact in the future, or leave people alone. Is that so much to ask?
You're the first person in 8 years to react negatively to it! Congrats!If you shout into a giant convention hall and someone reacts, you would get so defensive? That's the internet brother. Having a "conversation with buddies" over a PA system of a crowded room is a more accurate description.
Yeah, and that live feed crap was a piss poor decision on RT's part. Sure, you can see what I posted on the live feed. Sure, you can even come and reply on it. Does that mean that you should? No. If You saw some guy and his buddies having a conversation out on the street during your morning walk, would you barge in the middle of it with your smart assery completely uninvited? I would certainly hope not, because it's a pretty dick thing to do.If I knew you, it might be justified. If I even knew someone that you knew, it might be justified. But seriously, you've been here eight years and you haven't figured this shit out yet?
All journals are publicly posted just fyiAnd that was a poor way to write the metaphor to portray your meaning
The ratio in the metaphor was what you were supposed to draw on. But then again, who am I to question the guy that goes posting on complete strangers journals. Thank you for opening my eyes, sir, I'll be certain to change my ways and work for the goodness of sunshine and unicorns from now on or some shit.
I know that feeling. My laptop refuses to charge unless i lie it on it's side with the charge point facing the ceiling.
that's the spirit. Consider it a game. If you win you get to remain on your laptop; if you lose you lose internets
Oh, hey, it's charging again! I just love this game!
You should be safe for an hour. Or 40 minutes, or 12 minutes. Or 48 minutes. If your laptops battery life is anything like mine.
Yeah, the dog just jumped up into the bed and I lost the charge. Words can not express my displeasure. I appear to have a little over 50% battery life now, though, so I guess I don't have to strangle him.
(insert joke about G-spot)I've had to deal with that situation before and it's a monumental pain in the ass. It's especially annoying because it works at all. If the charger was wrong and just didn't work, fine. If it worked perfectly, fine. The fact that it's the wrong size, but will work if you get it just so is truly frustrating.
Finally got the damn thing to start taking the juice. The charger intened for this computer reached its last leg a few weeks ago, so I had to salvage an older one. It works for the most part, but the electrode (not sure if that's the term, the part that physically plugs into the computer) is of a slightly smaller diameter, and there is one specific spot it likes to sit in to actually make contact.And it's a bitch to find that spot.
