    The users who don't are probably born after 2000ish as ASL was a common chatroom abbreviation to "open" a conversation with someone. Or they are just making funnies!

    Also, hopefully people realise that by sex they mean gender not intercourse

    Thanks! Glad to see that this may be a re-occurring survey. I'd say monthly at first then quarterly would be the best schedule for something like this.

    Until there is a search functionality I think we're going to see some re-hashing of conversations. That being said, in 16 days Tildes has seen a lot of growth...

    Hey Alger - Try not to be so condescending. It may not come across to you but to others reading this comment it's a little off-putting. This is not what we want to see in Tildes.

    On firefox 58 mobile it creates a webapp, although it does look just like a shortcut it doesn't display the top browsing bar so it's like in full screen browsing mode.

    I'm in the exact same boat. Currently typing this on my Late 2010 Macbook Pro albeit with upgraded SSD and 8 gbs of ram but it still works perfectly fine. I was just in BestBuy trying out the new MBP keyboards and it's like typing on cardboard. Total crap! Wasn't the idea behind the Pro line is that users with technical expertise could keep the "body" of the device and keep upgrading the internals to keep it current? It's clear that Apple has moved away from their original core user base and are focused on the mainstream user market. I wish apple would produce a "developer" line which would go back to the DIY-upgrade devices.

    I agree with that sentiment. With the ability to "hide" certain tags I think that those who do not wish to participate in political discussions could avoid seeing them at all. A win for all sides!

    Totally agree, there should be a ~politics. I'm not sure why there isn't one already.

    If you're willing to spend the cash, Nest's products(cameras, thermostat, locks) are pretty great. They lack some of the more advanced features of other products but are simple as hell to use. I have Nest cams, thermostat, smoke detector and now the Yale x Nest smart-lock. I also have a google home + mini, Hue lights and Smartthings home security kit. With Smartthings + IFTT + Google Assistant you can automate to your hearts content. I have to warn you though, once you get started you can't stop adding more. Your wallet will hate you for a long time :)

    That being said, I need absolutely none of this stuff. But I love my tech and it makes doing simple things more exciting and futuristic. When I was a kid that movie "Smart House" always seemed so cool and now that I own my first house I can finally make something close to that a reality.
