these days a kid's only got to look slightly pale or sneeze and the parents rush them to a doctor...
thermometer, iot or no will only slow them down and raise the panic level.
And on that:
to placate the parents the doctors pretty much obliged to prescribe meds and write a sick note
and over the next week mom's gonna make sure the kid finishes that whole box of overpriced "kids" paracetamol
- funny how "kids" meds cost more but have less active ingredients.
I haven't - heck I'm going to have to restart The Witcher I someday and see if I can make sense of the control system - but if you have and liked the music, GoG are giving away a video of a live concert featuring the music from Wild Hunt until the 11th. Sounds pretty atmospheric.
It's a great game, probably still the best game I've played this generation. It fails in a few RPG elements, mainly that your progression through the game is very strictly controlled, most enemies respawn but there's no grinding (you'll work out why) and obviously your character is quite fixed, equipment and types types fairly limited. That's the bad stuff though, the game is great and where it rises above other games is that there are no boring generic side-missions. Even the non-main quests are interesting with interesting characters and situations and often decisions to be made. The main quests are even better. There's also a game within-the-game called "Gwent" (don't quote me on that) which you'll be playing along with the main game.
Compared to Skyrim it's less RPG, more action-RPG, but it's the better game.
I read the books some years ago, so I grabbed the first game when it came out - but the control system drove me crazy, everytime I tried to hit something the view spun round and I couldn't see the baddies anymore.
I'll probably try again once I'm done with Skyrim.

Thanks for the link. I've just found an old favorite from about 20 years ago. It worked great on the mac I had back then, but was always flaky on Windows. I gave up mac almost 20 years ago when I bought my first Windows '98 PC for college. I still remember the excitement when I got VS6 on it, realizing that I no longer had to write and compile my code in the school computer lab!
Constantly bombarded with spam calls. They may just have spoofed your number - they usually try to spoof a number with your area code in the hopes that you are more likely to pick up. I never do if I don't know the caller and will block if they don't leave a message and sometimes if they do!

I've heard it called 'neighbor spoofing' where the first x digits are the same as yours, usually the first 3 (or 6 if you include area code) in my experience. Sounds like David hit the trifecta and all the spoofed digits matched.

Maybe a warning from your future self. I would have had to answer it.
I have noticed an uptick in robo-calls, mostly from spoofed local numbers. I have also had multiple calls from people claiming to be returning my call...one guy was furious and unconvinced that I had not called his wife's cellphone 3 times that day! Those telemarketers have no respect for a 'do not call' list and apparently are willing to use random numbers to trick people into answering. In your case though, random doesn't explain it.
