If the only difference between a hub and a repeater is that the former has multiple ports and the latter just has one set, then why are they two different things?

From Wikipedia:

An Ethernet hub, active hub, network hub, repeater hub, multiport repeater, or simply hub is a network hardware device for connecting multiple Ethernet devices together and making them act as a single network segment.

Was someone drunk or high the day they came up with this terminology? Am I being fucked with?

Person sitting next to me: I've never seen a man knitting before!

So, I don't really mind the misgendering; that's the way of the world. But given the cis-specificness of the world, and given I was wearing a v-neck shirt, and given that with my weight and these drugs I have a chest you could set a mug of coffee on... I have no idea what happened there. Was that meant to be insulting? Was that person trying to be respectful?

Enh, who knows. I'm knitting a kick-ass blanket, so whatever.

* I went to the Bank of America website and logged in.
* I looked up how to change my address.
* It tells me how to get there, and: "Address changes generally occur within 24 hours of the requested change."
* I follow the instructions.
* The website shows that the address has been updated.
...
* About a week later, I order some yarn from online.
* I get a notification that it was rejected, because they couldn't verify my billing address.
* I log into my account, which shows that the address is changed.
* I fire up live chat, and talk with a customer rep, who puts my address change through.
* I find that my address change request is sent to a team as an email, and that apparently actually changing it fell through the cracks.
* I spontaneously combust from irritation.

Dear the ass-munching bank:

Why would you even bother allowing people to change their information online if I still have to talk to people to get it done?

"We have to confirm that you're you" my left tit.

TriMet's TransitTracker (stupid capital letters) now has a ShareThis thing on it.

For a page that updates itself to show when the next bus will be arriving.

So Josh and I had just walked to this bus stop, because it was covered.  I see a partially scratched-out sticker on the bus schedule display.

X: Huh.  "The Most Endangered Species" -- someone doesn't like PETA?
J: No, you wouldn't like it, it's a racist thing.
X: ...oh.  Oh!  Huh!

Internet-life just ruins me for real life.

While I'm scratching out more of the information: "People are wonderful, they arrive at conclusions carefully and with critical reasoning, and if they're shown to be wrong, they accept it gracefully.  Aren't I optimistic?"

And I broke a nail.

Reborn Dolls Battery Beating Heart

"These beating hearts are felt more easily than heard and are designed to be the closest sound and feel possible to the human heart. These heart beats come with batteries that are replaceable. Use in our bodies designed for holding beating hearts. No on/off switch or volume control knobs to fuss with, just give your baby a gentle hug and feel the soothing thump of this tiny heart. Hold your ear close to babies chest to hear the soft beating sound. What could be more real"

...I want, like, a case of these, so I can put them in my knitting.

You might be thinking knitted dolls, or knitted hearts.  I'm thinking scarves and hats.  Perhaps gloves.

"Here, feel this scarf."  *lubdub lubdub*  "WHARRRRGARBL"

Anti-"homosex" screed.

I really want to be enraged, but mostly I'm slack-jawed and enbogglificated.  Wow.  Wow.

[eta] The OP's wife was the focus of some recent racefail, even.  It's a small world after all!
