    And it turns out the local library’s free wifi blocks AFF (labels it as pornography).  Ditto at work, so was considering getting a VPN to work around the blockage.

    I didn’t know how bad it was until I opened a closet door that was stuck and nearly vanished beneath a cascade of reader’s digest and boxes like a demented version of tetris and the closet just kept disgorging junk.
    … I know she’s sick and perhaps been that way for a long time but nearly dying from detritus of the ages is gonna stick with me for awhile.

    Yay to the good news, and yikes to the bad news. Hoarding is brutal to deal with, but sadly it’s got to be handled.

    Part of it was the php version I think.  We’re now using php 7.3xxx so that’s going to help.  Hopefully I have time to upgrade the forum this weekend, work allowing.  If not, then definitely next one.

    Even though you’re in Australia, thank you for being a blood donor, Melrick. Those of us who can’t donate sincerely appreciate it.

    Thanks, everyone.  I spent my birthday making my 169th donation at the blood bank and then doing a bit of grocery shopping.  Truly I live life on the edge! lol

    Well, it gets more fascinating if you actually delve into it.  English itself was undergoing a “great vowel shift” where the pronunciations were shifting at the same time the spellings were being standardized, which is why there’s numerous examples of the pronunciation oddities.
    For instance, add “comb” into your example.  Or use Laughter & Daughter.

    I feel the same, always.  I’d never tell him, but I wish I were as skilled with on-the-fly wordplay as he is. I get to brag about him online, though, so I’m not disappointed.
