I'll try to keep that in mind, maybe that's the solution.

I'm already using the other colors for other things. Lately though I have taken to blowing on it after I highlight--thank you for your suggestion!

Older gaming laptops? by Iconian in Computers

Thank you very much for all that. For a number of reasons I've been using laptops in recent years, though I used to have a desktop. Maybe it's time to switch back. When the time comes I may look around local shops. The thing I've been concerned about with buying a used computer--any used computer--is that I've heard they're frequently infected with viruses. Do you have much experience with buying used computers, or maybe selling them? If so, do they tend to be infected often?

I'm not sure how I'd do that either, especially on a large scale. Maybe dip it in the solution before I write, like they used to use quills and inkpots hundreds of years ago?

Boeing faces ten more whistleblowers after sudden death of two by Drewski in news

I'm kind of confused about the dating of the article. It says "May 04, 2024 11:04 PM IST."

The article says "Joshua Dean and John Barnett, the two Boeing whistleblowers, were found dead under mysterious circumstances this year." Then, "The sudden demise of 45-year-old Dean was announced on May 30, less than two months after Barnett's." May 30, 2024 is still over three weeks away though.

"Their attorneys, Robert Turkewitz and Brian Knowles, are requesting extensive probe into their deaths." And "While police are about to end their probe into Barnett’s death, it is likely to take some weeks to reveal the exact reason for Dean's passing via few tests."

It seems to me like the article is actually about a year old and was just reposted yesterday.

EDIT: After further investigation, it sounds like the article should have said April 30 instead of May 30. Joshua Dean apparently died Tuesday, April 30.

Shadow-banned on Reddit? by Iconian in Introductions

Thanks everyone for the welcome. I'd have replied sooner, but I guess Saidit was down for most of the time since I joined? Every time I tried to get on here it said there was some problem, and www.isitdownrightnow.com said it was down.

And yes, I joined Reddit back in 2016 or so. It seemed pretty good for a while, but not lately. Thus, hopefully Saidit will be better.
