How I feel lately.
My wife has been bingeing on "Heroes" on The IMDB Channel all day while I'm hanging out with her in the living room. It's like cable TV but on demand and the ads are picked based on skip logic on your dossier. And 2/3 of them are for products carried by Amazon and a suggestion that you order Alexa to order it for you.

I moved out of New York City proper, and my new library looks like this: Ebooks I can access through their subscriptions aren't in the main catalog, and that catalog is stuck in the 21st century with a Netflix-style "just barely works" user interface. If you search for an author, you get book results and the author isn't a hyperlink to a result list for that specific author.
@NoAgendaBBS I may have hit an eddy in the spacetime continuum. I think I posted a message 60 minutes in the future.
@NoAgendaBBS I'm confused about the setup process. Why can't I enter more than 5 characters for a password?
