Well, why not? this is a community, after all.

Has anyone tried the free Starcraft? I tried the Starcraft launcher and get something that wants my password and then I get this error: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/BLZBNTBTS0000004A?utm_source=app-other&utm_medium=internal

first time ever but twice in two days...

I've gone and I THINK I clicked Safari address/URL box, and the safari screen shrank to lower left hand corner. No idea what I did that might have been slightly different.

That happened to me too. Weird.

Well, I guess the thread is Sporkers helping Sporkers but I leave stuff like that to my local priest...

Primarily from fading memories.

Dumb question: how do I stop my iPad from ringing when my phone rings?

Settings > Phone (way down in the apps) > Calls on Other Devices

Still getting my Saturday 10:47am ping on my phone, with most apps' audio notifications turned off. There should be a better way to track this activity.

Oh, thanks -- I was looking in Settings on the iPad. Silly me, thinking the device that I wanted to amend would allow me to. Welcome to the connected world.

What a journey.
I swear, I can't navigate iTunes Podcast library without > 1 minute beach balling for any task I have it do.

Looked but can't seem to find -- out of nowhere the main remote button for my earbuds seems to be set to "rewind to the start of the podcast" rather than "pause" in the Podcasts app. I can't find anything in Settings/Podcast about that, and not seeing anything about Remote either. Help?

Any of you ever been an overly protective uncle? My 22 year old niece is about to fly to New Zealand by herself to meet a guy from the Internet. I kind of want to have someone check this guy out... and it would be nice to know someone there who could be a sort of rescue person in case she needs to get away quickly.

Thoughts?

Holy fuck, (in the worst-case scenario) that's "well in a basement" material.

How well does your niece know this person? Have they supplied ID and address details to verify their bona fides?

At least if you know who this person is and where they live you can report them to the authorities should your niece suddenly "drop out of contact."

Look, maybe this'll end up being the beginning of a beautiful friendship™ - but prepare for the worst just in case.

Maybe call the local police there in NZ and tell them the situation and ask about the guy?

Yeah, get enough info to establish that they are who they say they are and have ties to a community/work/etc. Ideally a background check. My wife's mother did that on me when we started dating, lol, though I wasn't supposed to know.

I wish I had learned about it sooner. She leaves Tuesday. I guess my sister has Face-Timed with the guy and his mom.

I've been trying to remind myself that when I was 23, I met a 20 year old girl online who was from Florida. She flew to Minnesota to see me and didn't even tell her parents about it. The chances are everything will be fine but it's hard not to be paranoid.

this is a case where all these internet background check sites might be warranted.
