Got my internet back and immediately did an #m21 draft. 5-3 isn’t great, but I guess it’s not bad for a first foray? #mtg #magicarena

Cube draft is about to rotate out, let’s waste some gold #mtg #magicarena
After some back and forth from Diamond 1, this filthy casual finally hit Mythic with some weird totally unoptimized Gruul thing. #magicarena #mtg

LGUs here still use free email services a lot (which is weird because they already have the https://quezoncity.gov.ph/ domain and some other pages cite email addresses at this domain). I guess they cant be bothered to make temp mailboxes?
Third #mtgiko quick draft went 6-3. Last couple of losses were close, almost got the 7. Are games just easier to win in quick draft? My win rate is at like 72% currently for QD vs < 60 for premiere. Or maybe I just got lucky and I’m gonna eat these words later? #mtg

#mtgiko quick draft: while this Extinction Event was on the stack, I can see my opponent’s cursor mouse over each of his creatures in turn, realizing 2 out of 3 were even, then over mine one at a time, realizing they were all odd. Lol. #mtg
That was my 2nd quick draft. I haven’t been streaming them because I don’t plan to do a lot, but this one went surprisingly well, so documentation:

Kawilihan bakery, practically an institution of Anonas Street. IDK when it was established, but we bought our morning pandesal there everyday when I was a child, so imagine it’s been there at least 40 years now
Finished Tales of Berseria today. Pretty good game, fairly sure I enjoyed it more than Zestiria. Now the question is whether I push for the platinum now or take a break and play something else for a while…

was there a recent windows 10 update which broke the search functionality? the taskbar search doesn’t work for me now, I have to scroll up and down the start menu like an animal
Removing Bing integration like some replies suggested has worked! (Needs a reboot)
looks like it was a server side issue, @WindowsUpdate is looking into it
Quoted WindowsUpdate's tweet:   @syst_and_deploy @roytang Thank your for flagging this earlier.

Apparently fitbit (via cloudflare) can ban your ip. Obviously I just power cycled the router to get a new ip but one wonders how less tech savvy peeps might figure this one out
Having signs like these at your tables seems like a bit of marketing/salesmanship genius. By making it easier to get addons you have a higher chance of triggering impulse purchases. Why dont jollibee/mcdo/kfc etc do this?
Hello @talk2GLOBE , can you tell me what is this “UNLI BB BUNDLE found in our latest globe at home bill
