I've only tidied up the neckbeard since St. Patrick's Day. The last time I had a beard was 5 years ago and I dare say it's a bit better now, though I do seem to have some gray in there. With that and my longer hair doing its own thing, my brother said I looked like a Civil War general.

Hopefully one without the severe PTSD.

I tried to grow a beard for a good few weeks at the start but it's just not for me, not having to shave is great but I couldn't get used to how it feels

The annoying phase does last quite a long time, but I've at least gotten accustomed to it now and the hair isn't as scratchy and awful. I did at the start keep noticing how much I rest my hand on my chin or put my hand over my mouth while working.

I never get the scratchy part everyone complains about. Lucky me!

I plan to briefly have a mustache when I shave, but I don't know how people have those. The hairs are all over the shop for mine. Need some stache wax.

When I got rid of mine I did a half shaved half not thing like this:

I was only going to do it for a few minutes but I didn't get a good enough reaction out of my girlfriend so I left it like that for 2 days

I'm pretty sure the CEO of my company was the person stupid enough to click through a phishing email and it resulted in all of our electronic systems going down for one week, globally, across the entire organization. I think MIS is rebuilding the servers from scratch. All because some boomer doesn't know basic internet security.

Oops not a robust system then.

Funny life moment:

Me "Ha ha did you see that email this morning?"
Colleague "Yeah, thank god I saw it in time. I've deleted the DLL files it said to, I think I'm safe now. Lucky break eh?"

My experience with boomers in office settings is that they're often cranky and combative about having to be aware of basic net security and if they'd just be allowed to install this one app, their computer would run better. On the flip side, three quarters of my IT instructors were boomers.

My stepfather asked me to fix his computer once because it was running slow. I booted it up and it was about the same speed as a 286. So many porn pop-ups. So much downloaded freeware. Apparently he downloaded anything that was free. Maybe 300 applications running in the background. I helped him put it out by the curb.

it's a broad generational burden, having to help elders with their porn-addled devices and pretending that you aren't basically looking into the dark recesses of their soul.

My mother seems to have some pop-up from the Daily Mail.

Is that worse than porn?

i think the bigger problem is that you're on your mum's PC m8.

No, I have to fix it from time to time, and back it up.

Uber Eats is insane with their fees. I will just eat something else.
