Walmart was already dead to me - I made an account just for the drops today, if that helps to signal how often I shop there.

I don't know what I would classify them as now.

It's amazing how some **** **** can highjack your Iphone. Last week some **** appears to have just gotten a bunch of numbers with my area code and three digit prefix and has been texting 20 of us at a time non-stop. I've gone in and individually blocked all the contacts but LOL that doesn't work for ****. I get a dozen group texts every hour of people saying **** OFF and STOP.

Is there a service that blocks all unknown calls or texts? I'd pay more for that than I do for Netflix.

I am not the Iphone expert, but I had looked it up for a colleague in the past. If you go to Phone > Settings
and scroll a bit, there is the option " Silence Unknown Callers", it will not block them completely (like other manufactures do) but will send them straight to voicemail.

No idea if this will solve your problem, but there’s a setting in messages to Filter Unknown Senders - it says it’ll turn off notifications for numbers not in your contacts. Did you try that?

Xbox's Gamepass is still a lot better, but PS5 did their thing with the PS+ Collection and some of these other remastered games. A lot of good games in there.

Picked up Assassins Creed Valhalla and the new Spiderman on ps4 since they have free digital upgrade to ps5. Going occupy myself with these and hopefully I won't power through them before I can get a ps5.

Helpful hint: it's believed that playing the remastered Spider-Man and putting your PS5 in rest mode can cause it to brick. I'd probably avoid putting it in rest mode with any game just to be safe while Sony researches it more.

I saw that. Fortunately I don't have to worry about that due to my lack of PS5.

This is one of the reasons I actually want one right now. That, and I actually think Miles Morales and a Demon Souls remake are pretty solid launch titles. (Yes, if I got one, I might actually try a Souls game)

EVGA has finally moved to a queue based notification/purchase system for the 3080 cards. I randomly signed up for auto-notifies back on 10/7. You get 8 hours to make the purchase. I'm super pumped because I heard they're almost through September queues. Why every company isn't doing this is beyond me but I'm hopeful I'll get one in the next month or two.

ANTOnline had an XSS bundle deal, and I almost ordered it, then realized (despite wanting one long-term) the only reason I would be ordering it is to fill the PS5 void in my heart :(

Thanks j - figured the site was a little sketchy, but had no idea just how horrible the reviews for them are.

I feel like POE has prepared me for the amount of clicking I'm doing to refresh the Sony Direct site today. It says more availability on 11/13, but nothing yet.
