A hot chocolate laced with whisky is a great idea for a cold night and I recommend it to one and all.

I got a desk at work back in 2012 precisely because working at home had ceased to be effective for me. I'd get distracted or be hideously unproductive. And now I'm really fond of the sociability of work. If I worked at home, sure I'll still have active weekends and stuff but I'll go days in the week without talking to anybody and I fear I'd go crazy/lonely very quickly. Plus working on campus is pretty useful from a professional perspective, and convenient being next door to the library.

So hopefully I'll be able to make one of these hot desks "freeze".

People of New Zealand. Where do you watch your movies legally? Do you have a certain normal site you would rent movies from? I am involved in a gift exchange on Reddit, and I stupidly said I'd go international, now the person I picked said they wanted a movie recommendation, so I wanted to get them a $10 Amazon gift card and three movies to watch with it, but now it's like, oh wait, you can't stream movies off of Amazon in NZ?

Not being much of a movie watcher, I could barely answer that for Australia, let alone New Zealand.

Ian?

yeah, there's no nz version of amazon. you could see if you could get them a nz itunes card. idk how it works buying gift cards for international versions though. this makes it seem like it's not possible unless you were to set up a proxy. but surely if it's too much of a pain, you could just paypal them the money.

I recall that when my father bought me an NZ iTunes gift card, I couldn't use it through the Australian iTunes store, which was a huge fucking pain in the arse.

Don't you love it when you get a new keyboard and you keep hitting basically every key just to the left or right of the one you want because it's slightly different in shape to the keyboard you're used to?

Because the tiny little bluetooth keyboard that's come with my new iMac is causing me to type some unbelievable abominations.

I'm trying to decide if I should probably not buy things while at least a bit drunk, or if the fact I've never once regretted a drunk purchase means I should definitely buy things.

Oh, it's bedtime. Well I guess that's money saved then.

I can't even use PCs any more. God Windows is an ugly OS.

I do hate Windows but i particularly don't like Mac, either. I do use Apple products pretty consistently as my dad has been Apple fan since 90s.

At least when Apple design something it's clear somebody thought about the aesthetics and appearance. Windows products look and run like somebody slapped shit together as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Which is funny for me to say, because I remember disliking Macs in the late nineties for an ugly OS. Windows back then seemed to be the better designed product but they have long since lost their edge. I'm sure Apple will too in the fullness of time.
