I've been using Slack for quite a few years and it's been pretty effective.

I played with Slack a little but it wasn't giving me the kind of pop ups I was looking for.. It could be just a configuration of notification thing. I might spend some more time with it this weekend.

There are a lot of integrations available for Slack so you might be able to use something to make a more prominent notification. I know that I get prompted about Slack messages in the App on my computer, and then a notification that buzzes my phone, and also one that buzzes my watch.

Nice update, I finally found the company that wrote the old messenger app that they use at the office and they have an updated one that does the multiple platforms for the same user which is what I needed. So no learning curve. Woot! Thanks, ND.

I know the new apple air tags are just tiles only probably more expensive but I want them anyway?

Yeah my only problem is what I really need one for is my AirPods case. and it looks like they are too big to just stick on the back. Not cool!!

From what I have read, the Apple air tags are actually better than Tile, I mean as long as you have an iPhone.

Like a pinch on the neck from Mr Spock

The number of likes on my Instagram posts has gone down by 50% in the past few days. Simultaneously, IG has been spamming me to upgrade to a business account and pay to promote my posts.

I just want people to see my art, and IG holding my art hostage until I pay. They're not even being subtle about it.

Jesus, Tom, that's horrific.
