      Here in Norway you can reserve yourself against telemarketers. And it works! I never get calls from telemarketers. I get a text every now and then, though.

       

      It is not possible to reserve against opinion pollers, though. But they call me very rarely for some reason.

      I'm on the DO NOT CALL List, which (In the U.S.) is supposed to prevent them from calling, but Robo Callers and Cell Phone scammers still get through sometimes, ...(and charities and surveys are allowed I think) and since they're usually spoofing the numbers on your caller ID,  It's hard to turn them in.  Also they made it really hard to turn them in,  rather than just a few questions, they make you fill out way too much paperwork (online paperwork,  if you will)...I've already complained that no one is going to waste their day answering more than a few questions,  Like time of day, phone number they called from, and what they said,..Stop asking a bunch of other crap and go get these guys!!

      Hey, I remember when they passed the CAN-SPAM act of 2003.  That worked great, didn't it?

  2. No, I'm not using a PAL TV. I had this same issue with Pitfall II and being able to see the bats. So I had already brightened the TV some.
  3. That almost makes me want to go to the dentist. Congratulations on that "haul". They look like they are in great condition.
  4. On "Tower of Rubble" , are there supposed to be invisible blocks or do I need to brighten my TV screen?
  5. I feel sick.  Someone got my cc #.  It is cancelled and a new one is on the way, but I still feel sick.

      Check the expenditures online; if there is anything you didn't buy, dispute it and the card company will remove the charges.  One benefit of having a CC is the companies typically have pretty solid consumer protections in place.

      We get a fraudulent charge on at least one card a year.  It's pretty much life as usual these days. We've never had to actually pay for any of those false charges, which is good.  Also good to go over your CC statement each and every month and look at every single charge.  A lot of times the false charges are small enough to fly under the radar unless you're diligent.

      I check my statement every month.  I keep the receipts and check off each charge.  I also put a check mark at the top of

      each receipt to signify that is has shown up on my bill and a second check to indicate it has been paid for.

       

       

  6. I'm still going to wear a mask.  The pandemic isn't over yet.

      I've been fully vaccinated for about a month now (last shot six weeks ago) and I still wear a mask when in a store or at work.  I don't have to wear a mask at my desk but as soon as I have to get up, so does the mask.

      I think it's a relatively common thing with us folks that love the video games hardcore, typically "inside people", at least to an extent, I know a lot of people who game a lot, work from home, and unphased.

      Me?

      Semi-retired.

      Somehow, IRL, I don't gel well with people, but I guess I get to pick and choose a bit more, on the 'net, and I've managed to solidify several relationships with people I'll likely never run into IRL.

      I feel terrible for anyone affected by it, truly, but it has been somewhat "peaceful" for me, everyone has to experience "life as I know it"(Self-imposed hermit...).

      Got vaccinated.  Wearing a mask to me depends on how dense an area is with people.   It is my choice to help them to wear my "spit catcher" and to help me a little.

  8. I can't decide what to have for dinner.  I've been through the lineup so many times.  I want something different but can't think of anything.

      Breakfast for dinner. Spanish omelet with black beans and salsa after a hard day at work... awesome.

  11. The Capitals sucked in the playoffs.  It all started with that fluke goal in Game 3 OT.

    The Bruins dominated from that point on.

  13. I just love having to help take care of a pool I never use.
