Lunar Dance I was deleting things and it wasn't opening any space up. So what happened as the phone was not even working as a phone. It was too full to receive text messages or leave a missed call record so I wouldn't know anyone called.Lunar Dance 666 wrote: ↑Sun Sep 17, 2023 9:12 amI second this. I have an older phone too, and I am struggling as is to keep the important applications running, since it's been running out of storage space. And I've been having to delete things, and move around things to be able to do the things with it that are necessary nowadays. Its been a pain in the arse.Personal Growth wrote: ↑Thu Sep 14, 2023 8:51 pmThank you ApolloAbove and Spine for the old site rituals.
It makes it much more pertinent for me because I can do them on my old iPhone 4s. Otherwise I'd have to get the laptop out and I hardly ever use it. Slow and cumbersome thing the laptop. Well pleased with old version site.
Thanks once again to everyone involved.
The Netherlands seems to be going through being pushed into communism. Everything must be new tech. Instead of hiring more employees to do the scanning at the kassa, every supermarket now has a 'self scanner', to make it faster to get in and out of the store, but people also steal from this.
Taxes are increasingly getting higher still, along with the price of inflation.. Groceries are expensive as f, not to mention the price on electricity and gas. Increased lobbying for solar panels, energy savers and whatnot.
Yet still they lobby very leftist 'everyone is welcome here' etc.
They finally decided that they will try to raise the minimum wage but that only means more inflation because somehow the 'income/profit must always be the same' for companies, with the result that products are going to get more expensive again, although A LOT is imported from China as is already.
This also leads to things like getting your hours cut. Having to work harder in littler amount of time.
Aside from this, the housing problem because of 'climate crisis' where they were not allowed to build any housing for a while. And any houses that are build now are apartments. And still, the increasing influx of foreigners.
And big taxes on cigarettes etc, whilst they're trying to make the production of weed/pot legal at the same time, because they are trying to get it out of the criminal circuit.. Criminally high fines on stupid things like wrong parking..
And trying to ban the car from the streets and out of cities, but the public transit infrastructure is too bad to cover it properly, plus also expensive to use it if you don't have a plan at that company that runs that infrastructure.
In other words: You don't want to be here.
Long story short I erased the whole phone content and settings. So all contacts, apps everything gone. Got me some space but I cannot put any apps again as it doesn't go onto the Apple Store.
They need these phones to usher in their digital control grid. The self service cashier tills is the same digital control grid.
A person really shouldn't spend much time looking at these phones as it weakens a persons concentration. So I don't really look at my phone only for reading.
I know things are getting expensive. Try not focus on that but do practice, 'Thrift is Blessing." You'd be amazed what an income thrift is.
And these problems like no parking and closing roads to cars.
I know the powers that be go to some large summit get together and make all these plans.
But it's all enforced at the local level.
I feel like I'm the only one that looks at it and gets angry.
These local politicians are employed by us the people.
We can turn it around all we need is masses of people to get angry and go to their local council offices.
And demand their employee the politician remove all these invasive and restricting measures.
And if they don't they will have to leave the office and we will put some one else in who will.
We are not there yet with our NPC populations. But our side is growing.
We persevere and continue working on improving the situation in our own way here.
Hang in there sister.
