    Also had to find out (hidden somewhere in the forums) that the Creative Cloud 15% discount is an only-once offer for new customers. Existing CC users cannot use that discount. And it's only for the first year.

    @33MHz Yes. Also - if reading the TOS correctly - your account can be terminated due to inactivity. And if you have more than 1000 pics as a free user, they'll get deleted back to 1000 in February.

    After today's email by Flickr it is even more unlikely that I will rethink my decision to not upgrade to Pro. They do not seem to really care about the normal/free users. Not sure that Pro user's discounts are really that useful.

    Is it too early for "My New Year's resolution: 1920 by 1080" postings?

    "What happened to the last universe?" "It got destroyed by a logic error." "Really?" "Yeah, there was a #WednesdayChallenge on a social media platform on the topic of 'prompt' and someone replied that he refuses to write about 'prompt'." "Neat."

    @blumenkraft No. Either displaying an embedded video player (with play button and no preloading) or manual download via link. Don't want a 600MB video being downloaded without my interaction.

    @blumenkraft I'll take that as a joke and hope that something like that only happens for small video files ;)

    @blumenkraft wow, using BETA in Chrome 70 automatically downloads the video file to my computer which is a little bit scary 😮

    @33MHz Thanks, just having a cold, nothing bad but still s*cks. Maybe I'll get a post worthy idea on the weekend ;)

    I'm sorry, but again I missed the Wedneyday Challange. Not feeling well and had no idea on this week's topic.

    @33MHz I'm using it mostly in the evening, so it's ~18 hours between page visits. It's not a problem, but maybe worth mentioning.

    And I need to re-login to Beta every day. Better than being unable to not being able to login, but yeah.

    Wow, what happened to the design of Chrome? Where did all the contrast go?

    @papierzeit Guess you're not using any mods then ;)

    Lessons learned: - Have a backup - Never update VMs without making a snapshot before - Keep being curious, even if you sometimes fail

    Was unable to fix it, so backed up some files, then reinstalled the VM with an older OS version.

    When I'm bored, I update a Linux VM to the most recent operating system version. Then it fails to restart. And I will spend quite some time to fix it.

    @papierzeit Bookmarked. Thanks for sharing. I've set up a similar environment for testing but the description was worse and it took me hours to get it running. This one looks far easier. My goal also was to connect VLC to that server which should work.
