      1. Are you aware that Admins, Mods, and Forum MVPs are allowed to choose a custom identity instead of the generic ranking description (Board Big Wig, Thread Kahuna, etc.). For example, mine is Nocturnal Slacker; Josh's is CLI Phreak, etc. If any of you members who qualify for this would like me to change this for you, let me know. It was actually @ebrke's recent post that reminded me of this because she has not made that choice.   2. Would anyone like to see one or two other post reaction emoticons in addition to the current 5 that we now have? In other words, when you "react" to a posting here, you can currently choose between Trophy (+1 reputation pts), Heart (+1 reputation pts), Sad, Laugh, Confused (all neutral pts). Are there a couple more that you'd like to see? Like Anger (neutral pts), maybe, or something else?   Just curious...

      Dev channel update to 81.0.396.0 is live Added features: Added a dialog to warn users when they’re visiting a website that uses out-of-date security settings. Added a setting to enable or disable automatic profile switching (when work or school links are opened are opened in a personal profile, the browser will offer to automatically move that link into a window for the work or school profile). Added support for extensions inside Application Guard windows. Added a dialog to warn users when they sign into a browser profile with a different account than they previously used to sign into the same profile. See the link for fixes and known issues.

      Short answer is for stuff that isn't important. I feel it's better to use it for crap so I don't find someone else has taken it over, although supposedly they would notify me if that happened. I have several accounts like this that I've accumulated over the years. I do also have a protonmail account which I use for what I consider important stuff.   Their instructions direct you to use imap, although before I lost connectivity I used POP3. When I was having trouble connecting, I was trying to do everything they specified (much good it did me) and I stuck to imap--I was just grateful I could connect at all.

      You communicate with me via email. I guess I'm special.
