I write left so I consider myself a lefty, but I do pretty much everything else with my right hand.
I'm never sure which hand I use for what activity and learning a new skill that requires hands is always a little awkward at first.
As a drummer my left hand was certainly the weaker one.
A superpower? Perhaps one on par with pharting so badly you clear out not only the room you are in, but on all the rooms on the floor and adjacent floors as well. Furthermore creating the need for immediate repainting of all the walls.
My father is a left-hander. I'm "mostly" right handed, but had trouble learning how to tie shoe-strings as a kid. It was a magic I could not fathom until my left handed father showed me once. After a long time of practicing with Mom, being shown once by a lefthander made it simple and immediately replicated the movement.
Later, in school, I'd made a habit of switching the mouse every few weeks from one hand to the other. Writing with both is a matter of forcing yourself to do it. And can roll a smoke with either hand. Not always pretty, but it works.

So I decided to try my hand at a little online gaming, and I'm trying to sign up for World of Tanks.
They have the most elephanted-up registration workflow ever.
First, I never received the account activation email.
Second, when I try to open a support ticket saying that I can't log in because I was never able to activate the account, it wants to know the email address associated with the account. So I enter the email address that I used to sign up with, and it tells me, "There is no account associated with this email address."
Has anyone else here played this game, and/or found out how to successfully register an account?
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
So what happens when you try to sign up again using your original email?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Restarted my Dell laptop and I think a Windows update was installed that completely bricked my ethernet adapters.
Did a network reset, tried stuff, deleted them, re-added them, still nothing.
Got wired internet and I'm connected, but still no browsing or connecting to Wi-Fi!
Found out Firefox apparently uses its own settings and was the only browser that worked.
The stupid part is that a coworker had the exact same thing happening to her Dell laptop this morning.
We were the only ones with Dells and the only ones affected.
Spent two hours trying to get everything to work again, but without success.
Just got home and everything works like nothing happened...
I must've done something right this afternoon even though it didn't work at the time
My coworker's still doesn't work though (she used her backup laptop today).
What the is this ?
I feel ya!
Windows 10 is such a complete pile of crap!
Whenever I can, I disable updates for 35 days.
Most of the time, I manage to avoid updates altogether - but probably every 4 months or so, I do a bit of cursing, and then continue on with disabled updates
