A year ago Google Music shut down. I'd used it exclusively as a free cloud locker for the same ~/music/ dir I've been keeping since the late 90s, because its player let me access my music from any device with an internet connection. So when it shut down I had to find a new way to do that. I ended up running a https://jellyfin.org server on my home desktop. It hasn't been without its hassles but it gets me just about the same UX as Google Music did, in a brave new self-hosted world.

you ever eat a sandwich so good that it makes you want to lead a long and fulfilling life

I worked retail years ago. The general public didn't call today "Black Friday" then, that phrase was used behind the scenes by retail employees who were dreading their worst working day of the year. "Black Friday" was basically saying "we're doomed," it wasn't a HAPPY expression at all.

Later the marketing types got hold of the term, it began popping up in ads, and now the shopping hordes are all "yay Black Friday!"

It makes my retail-survivor heart sad every time an expression of pain coined by the overworked and underpaid is used to entice more shoppers.

Frodo my lad, any chance of seeing an Elder Scrolls game after Skyrim? I should like to play in that world again.

I'm sorry, uncle. I'm afraid they're still releasing skyrim on new platforms.

Oh... pity..

If you input any price into Bandcamp containing a contiguous "666," it throws up the horns.
