Why do we have Pride?
  • I’ve had to hear the F-slur at EVERY ONE of my workplaces. I’m middle aged and in tech. Makes me want to cry…

    At the funeral of some homophobe straight man who finally gets a taste of his own medicine 💅

  • Why do we have Pride?
  • Idk about the heartwarming part In very few places would his job be safe How many friends would have dumped him, family, etc? I too am glad he got to have a partner but when do you think they got to have any romantic dinner? Hold hands in public? Kinda sick of the well-meaning stuff, which is also condescending.

    I mean, sorry to make you feel bad about what you feel is sympathy. I really do hate shitting on someone’s good feelings. But maybe reconsider “heartwarming” :/

  • How to remove "Creative Cloud Files" folder from Windows Explorer How to remove Creative Cloud Files shortcut from Windows Explorer (left Navigation Pane) after April 2021 update?

    The "Creative Cloud Files" shortcut was a pain to get rid of in the past, but after a recent update in spring 2021, the damn shortcut is back, and none of the old tricks work anymore. Has

    How to remove Creative Cloud Files shortcut from Windows Explorer (left Navigation Pane) after April 2021 update?

    I had already uninstalled Creative Cloud but its zombie folder was still there. (Win11/64bit/most recent updates.) Looked for hours, tried tons, nothing would work. Maybe for you Adobe's unPinCCF tool would work, or using regedit to set System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree to 0 would - but not for me.

    TLDR (thanks, Aubrey and Bortao) Delete the following registry key (after making a backup of your registry ofc):


    Bortao reports- "The last part of the number is random, so open Regedit and browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace, find a key starting with 0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49 and remove it." Me, I found it by Ctrl-F and looking for "creative cloud files" until I landed on that one. Deleted it, rebooted, GONE.

    Bortao's comment in this link:

    This is NOT the only thing that worked for other people, so I should post my notes from this long trek, maybe one of the simpler paths might work for others


    Loom alternatives / help?

    Loom alternatives? Recording a demo here. Desktop app dies often, only a reinstall gets it going again briefly. (Win11, VPN or not, permissions all set, HDR unchecked.)

    Web app won’t show my camera on VSCode or Git, only the Loom site. That part is vital 🤷‍♂️ so I’m stuck using the desktop app I think. (using FF mostly but tried Chromium (pls no Chrome))

    Will just buying it magically fix all this? 🤷‍♂️ Thanks in advance for any ideas 👍✌️
