Speaking of fast food, what the hell happened to the Tim's on 52nd and 72nd in foothills industrial? It was pretty efficient for the longest time and I've never encountered more than 6 cars or so in the drive thru before 6am.

This week I went twice, both times around 5:45am and there was rush hour style 12-17 cars and the line didn't move for like 5 minutes. Getting to the window it seemed they must have suddenly turned over half their staff or something.

Both times I was greeted with "What was you order?". It's a ****show this week.

And most importantly, the risk. One wrong keystroke during downgrading procedure and I could have lost all of my data probably. Google Catalina to read the outcry all over Internet... Is this the right and considerate way to implement a new operating system for a dominant market player?

No arguments that Apple dropping 32-bit app support so suddenly is ridiculous, that's why I don't buy their products. They design their products to fit with how they think they should be used, not how people actually use them

I'm not sure what you expect Apple to do. They switched to 64-bit just like Microsoft did with Windows and it makes 32-bit apps incompatible. It's up to the developer to make them compatible, not Apple.

What an Apple thing to do, going to 64 bit like 8 years after the rest of the market.

Microsoft never dropped support for 32-bit apps, and won't do so anytime soon. This is simply Apple cutting development costs by dropping 32-bit support

That's not true actually, all they're doing is dropping 32-bit support. MacOS has had a 64-bit kernel since 10.6 Snow Leopard

Why the hell would you go to a place with garbage food if they have 6 cars in the drive thru, let alone 12-17. (nothing personal, I just hate waiting)

I don't understand the Tim Horton's "cult". ####ty breakfast food is so easy to come by. Or just make some toast?

Haha yeah Tim’s sucks. Complaining about their drive through line is like complaining you have to wait for a table at Olive Garden.

Getting upset where people choose to eat or get coffee is super weird. Who gives a #### where someone gets coffee and/or breakfast in the morning? Long line ups and untrained staff are a legit gear grinder, especially at that hour.

Yea, I feel really bad since coffee and stale donuts are so hard to come by that you have to wake up 30 minutes early to sit in a line to get them.

Or flick on a coffee maker at home and butter a bagel. I just saved you your entire complaint and about $100 a month.

I drink Tim's coffee so I don't have a vendetta against the company but I can't ignore that their food quality may be worse than the hot/cold food sitting in 7-Eleven all day. I just don't understand why Canadians think eating there for breakfast every day is a good idea. Americans wouldn't even eat this food.

That must have changed within the last year? Last I looked it was 2 installs and now it says.
Detected installs: 2
You can install Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs, 5 tablets, and 5 smartphones.

Good to know.

It is a gear grinder when you have a group of people in the car, and one passenger always has to stop for Tim's. Ever go skiing with someone who has to stop at Tim's on the way out, and the way home?

to calculate a weekly expense compounded over ten years, multiply the price by 752, for a monthly expense, multiply by 173

$17300 in burnt coffee and stale breakfast sandwiches, yummy
