Slowcooker beef crockpot
View slowcooker-beef.md

Source: common knowledge, Binki’s experience, loosely based on instructions from crockpot/slowcooker thing.

Ingredients

  • 2 bay leafs/leafs
  • celery
  • 0.5lb bacon (or just get smallest package, preferrably uncured)
  • 2lb beef (chuck roast without much fat or top round steak, best to choose cheaper)
  • 2–4 cup sake
  • 2tsp ground black pepper

  • BeReal. I guess I can't try last year's (this written in 2022) social media trend. (Though I can't tell if this app is just failing to use Android WebView correctly since I'm a Firefox user).
  • Venmo. Since I was forced, I'm just using one of my phones' SIM's numbers. But I wish people were willing to accept PayPal instead which is free for personal use and international and supports using a desktop web interface. So few things to like about Venmo!
  • Viber. There's a chance that if you open a support request they might override it for you, but nobody uses it anyway. Sorry, Rakuten.

See this SO answer.

Disable large send offload in host on vEthernet (to avoid messing with non-virtual adapters). Disable larg send offload in guest for all adapters (unable to predict adapter names and probably all of them are real).

Product Shortcomings

This is an attempt to record shortcomings in products. I might feel like there is no proper channel for me to complain about the thing, so I attempt to record them here.

Some of these things might be fodder for my own attempts at providing solutions. When I feel like I have time to try to code for fun, I might try to hack things up with respect to these issues.

  1. I’d like to mute notifications for specific spammy people/bots without having to ignore entire channels which I otherwise care about.
  2. I’d like to be able to walk away from my computer for a minute without missing a DM notification. Discord requires you to stare at your computer screen or continue listening to its audio for 1 minute prior to physically leaving your computer. Some people post on Discord and every other messaging service I’ve used actually tries to make sure you’re notified when people you are about message you, but not Discord:
  3. Android app doesn't handle back button correctly when launched from a notification

Issues With Original Post

This is derived from the original post. However, the original post has two issues. Both of these issues are related to the SqlDependencySchemaOwner user it creates in the database. This user owns and executes the stored procedures which SqlDependency creates dynamically.

Microsoft archived that forum and even the original author cannot update the post.
