Appreciate the suggestion. My brother has been on me about "that one" for a long time. Probably should have taken his advise when first given to me (he's the computer guru of the family -who got his start in the VAX profession during the late 70's). *Your suggestion* has moved me across the line to do just that!

Good to know. I especially like the "no Microsoft anything on my computer." My laptops will stay with Gatesoft, and the transition to 11, until they won't support any future requirements -and/or- I become totally frustrated with Microsoft.

I usually remain on the 'bright side of the road', most of the time. Was able to sleep in this morning (or I thought) and was in one of those deep REMs. Nothing like a slew of junk calls as a wake-up call!

Figured since I already fired up my old PC, I'd check out the OB. Decided to rant for a bit instead of looking at orchid threads. And yes, you are right on... a quick glance at my orchids (along with the am coffee) made for a better perspective!

My PC... I taught it to update while I'm asleep.

Even phones can be taught a new trick. I put mine where I can't hear it when I don't want to be disturbed (like sleeping, watching a movie, or just plain ol' leave me alone time.)

It would run down and I'd never find it again.

And what does retirement have to do with it Dusty? I was doing that way before retiring. If it’s really an emergency they will always send the popo to yer door.

Dusty, I'm an eCommerce slave do to work; web management, social media, google.. And I don't sleep with the phone on, except the alarm.

I think we all should sleep, rest and get away from cellular signals and blue lights as much as possible.

I am "on call". My cell is my leash. I have to have it with me 24/7 so when a job comes up they can call. So, when I retire I no longer need a leash!

Why didn't you just delete it from a certain point. All it was good for was chasing away new members.

You still can move it... I don't think there is any limit on how many times you can move it until it is fairly well buried.

It’s already going down… can’t comment on it, so it’s a slippery slope. On second thought, putting into a thread that’s a sticky would be foolish… but still.

Dusty… If that scares off a new member here, they probably won’t survive social media anyway. Plus, mods aren’t the context police. We have no business deleting a bunch of posts just because folks are flexing their attitude or opinion unless it gets obscene or overly inflammatory. Likewise mods don’t approve or disapprove opinions or advice whether good, bad, or indifferent. We may put our two cents in as a member, but it’s not our place to just delete posts because the conversation goes south.

I'm not on OB as often as I used to be. That there is a Tantrum or Rant thread . . . something I hadn't noticed before, and sort of amusing, in a threw-up-in-my-mouth-a-little-bit sort of way!

Reading your post I had to look up Fertilizer Reprise. OMG. All I can say is urine kills orchids and there was too much of it on that thread!
