Notifications - use 'em?

On my desktop.
I'd say I have 98% of them turned off. Mostly an annoyance to me.
I have Mail, CCC, Calendar, Messages (only coz my pho is Android), & News (which I almost never use), on.

I use the CCC menu. I don't need the CPU overheard of a notification on top of that. If there's a problem, the CCC icon will blink with an exclamation point.

Otherwise, much the same at work.

At home, I have Mail notifications off.

I use only phone, Mail, Messages, and Calendar notifications, and the last 3 are banners only. Being retired for a number of years, my activities don't generate much from anything else.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

I use a few, all the time.

Very handy for me.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I have do not disturb turned on all the time for my iMac. It’s very distracting

Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.
