Thank you, LinkedIn, for reminding me of my colleague's death. Appreciate it.

Found out that ancient photobucket pics were still showing here. Wondering what I had on my old account, I reset my password, logged on, and was met with a warning about being over capacity on a free account. I guess they put a limit on or reduced cap at some point after I stopped using the service.

This obnoxious image may welcome you back to your manky old photo dump.

This will continually pop up even if you sit idle on your gallery. If you're doing a lot of clicky actions, you'll probably click on that subscription page more than once. I probably clicked out of that screen about 200 times as I was saving my stuff to my computer month by month. One of the worst nag screens I've ever had the misfortune to see. Brought back some awful popup memories.

I guess in like 2017, Photobucket got tired of the third party hosting stuff in blogs and "broke the internet" by replacing them with a photobucket ad. They must have reversed that since then, because it was working just fine here. Or maybe they only reversed it for images uploaded before a cutoff date.

Also, a free account is capped at 250 images and 2500 GB of data. I had 1000 images over cap, but was only taking like <6% of data cap. Harassed by more nagbars until I deleted stuff down to 250 images. Currently at 0.
fwp part: i guess they were nice to not delete all my stuff considering i was vIoLaTiNg tHeIr nEw tOs that i never even read/agreed to/was even aware of, but it was sure a pain to get it all off their server. paid model is also weirdly limited, and gallery tools don't seem very powerful to make up for that, unless they're hiding a lot of buttons behind the paywall. also, i have to email them directly to close the account entirely. ew.

Long woman's strand of hair on my Dunkin Donuts donut delivery from Uber Eats. The driver didn't have hair like that and I don't think he would go into my bag to put hair.

I guess sometimes the cost of a delivery service can be paid for by saved time and fuel.

Not a fwp, but the donut place I buy from has "eat more donuts" as a motto. I do appreciate the business honesty, even though eating more donuts is probably bad for you. I get maybe a box or two a year and usually prioritize the little chocolate cake donuts while the company fights over the bars and twists. They also have the kind of black coffee of a certain McDonald's quality that's addicting but you may want to stop drinking if you ever looked at the inside of the machine.

I've also seen "eat more hole foods" as cutsie donut joint mottos.

You guys don't have Dunkin Donuts on the west coast IIRC. I assume you have Krispy Kreme though?

Bunch of Krispy locations around Seattle-Tacoma. Point of trivia, tons of Baskin-Robbins. Owned by the same guys who own Dunkin.

Fuck, that just reminded me I need to find a new donut shop in this area.

The best donuts I've had tend to be from non-chains. Supermarket donuts are sometimes alright depending on the bakery. I've even had fluffy, light, non-greasy donuts from Safeway.

I am not a fan of KK donuts. American runs on Dunkin though.

Show us the numbers afterwards and let's see if adding more lanes or whatever improve your traffic situation.

well the number of lanes went from 2 to one so.

Wow, well, I guess that depends on the rest of the package. Cutting the number of lanes can be fine if it also comes with other transit programs and/or removing certain bottlenecks. It kind of sucks when motorist taxes go to infrastructure remodels that hurt them.

High hopes for the diverging diamond to my south, but annoyed with the interchange between 18 and I-5. Westbound to southbound always sucks in rushhour.

What is going on with those street names? Am I having a stroke or is it all disjointed?

It was for construction cause the section of this highway between big cities is complete shit for 90 miles.  But 2 lanes sucks cause it's a major truck road, their speed limit is 65, cars is 70. 3 lanes per side is overkill but would be nice.
