I turned on Windows Controlled Folder Access for a bunch of personal folders on my home PC and it is already proving such a fascinating thing, such as proving the obvious things we already knew like how badly so much software junk drawers folders like %userprofile%\Documents. As another example, it is fun how many random folders that the nVidia apps want to touch.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
