Slightly similar to Contrast's situation.
Every few days i receive multiple sms's giving me a Messenger verification code. I've been logged in to the Messenger app for years now and it hasnt asked me for a code. So my only guess is someone keeps trying to use my phone number.

It's a bit odd but I'd probably just ignore it. If you don't have an account with Vodacom then ignore it as it may be spam/phishing or found your email address with leaked passwords from some other breach. In which case just make sure you use different passwords on all sites. Best case scenario, it's just someone who made a mistake typing in their email address (I don't know how common yours is). If you do have a Vodacom account then it might be worth contacting them to get more information but I would do so by going to their site on your own, rather than using the links in the email.

Yeah, that's more concerning.

Thanks, guys. I don't have a Vodacom account, and I do use different passwords, so I'll just ignore it.

Just found a wild brown house snake in my pet rat cage! Thankfully my friend is a snake dude so he was able to remove the snake and relocate him. So thankfully my rats are alive! 😳

I have installed a network camera. It has come to this.

My father decided it a good idea to call my colleges at work. I'm considering getting a restraining order?

I tried the KFC Tabasco chips.
...
...
...
Yeah. Don't.

I dunno... There's a lot of vinegar in the tabasco. And I really hate vinegar...
Maybe that's what through me off...
It's also soggy... Yeah... I like my chops crispy thanks.
I didn't finish them.

Also accidentally ordered 10 dunked wings instead of 4... '^^
Whoops.
Guess I'll be having that for breakfast.

I feel like I'm "fixing my dishwasher till it's broken"
I replaced a switch that tells it it successfully drained the tank only to have it complain about the thermocouple and leak a lot. And now it's complaining about the same switch again. I think I know what happened and it gives me an opportunity to look for the damn leak.

In other news... I really don't feel like falling asleep... Honestly if I could I'd call in sick tomorrow.

Slowly (and frustratingly struggling) learning how to create digital art. Not just software, but fundamentals of drawing. One thing I noted, everyone has their own way of doing art and its overwhelming.

I just wrapped up colour grading my longest film yet - 30 minutes! It took me 2 and a half days and I'm pretty chuffed 😁

I was browsing for a new motherboard for work when I came across a REALLY good Router for sale for a great price. So I bought it!
Got myself a Mikrotik RB3011 AND a RB2011 for less than the cost of a new one!
10 (1)Gigabit ports, and an SFP port.

I have it all set up now.
I wanna get fiber in this year, and it'll come in great!

You know how you watch a horror movie and it's dark, contrasted and even blue in colour? And a comedy tends to be bright, yellow and happy looking? That's colour grading! Manipulating and enhancing colours of Log film footage to create a certain look and feel applicable to the genre.

Why is it that Penguin Randomhouse doesn't accept Sci-fi or Fantasy manuscripts, but they have a whole friggin' CATEGORY dedicated to it on their website?

Also, why do some publishers allow manuscript submissions by email for non-fiction, but when it comes to fiction they want the whole thing as a physical copy posted via snail mail!?

Don't even get me started on how every single publisher seems to have different criteria for how to format a manuscript, which results in ten different versions of the same story clogging up my folders, each one with different margins and indents and font sizes, but fuck me, I guess.

The most absurd thing is probably this one publisher that begrudgingly accepts English manuscripts, but only if it heavily relies on the use of a native African language, which is something most English speaking readers wouldn't be able to read and wouldn't even be looking for in an ENGLISH NOVEL!!

This is just some of the BS I have to work with. -_-

Browsing the forum, seeing whats been happening while I've been gone.
A wave of nostalgia every time I come here.
Working on my next DnD session planning, so far looking like either a cult in the church or gnolls in the mines, but I'll see if inspiration strikes.

When that happens it's pretty much always bots indexing the site. Unless someone posted a link to a big chatroom or something.

Am I tripping that there was a main-page kind of thing that wasn't just the forum?

Edit, it was https://zafur.co.za/
Obviously xD
