I was trying to trouble shoot Bluetooth headphones coupling to my iMac. In the process, I turned off bluetooth. Then I realized my keyboard and mouse both couple by bluetooth. Duh! How do you turn bluetooth on again without a mouse of bluetooth? I did manage to find a USB mouse I use with a PC, plugged it in, that did the trick. :)

That is one thing I will give to Windows.  Whenever I have to do something I rarely do on a Mac, I have to google how to do it.  When I want to do the same on Windows 10, I just type in their search bar and it immediately takes me to where I need to go.

Mac btw it is system preferences->bluetooth.  Not too hard.  Windows 10 just type bluetooth and select the first thing that comes up.

You are missing the point. How do you do system preferences -> bluetooth when you've turned off bluetooth and your bluetooth mouse and keyboard have both been disconnected? On Mac you don't need to go to system preferences. By default there is a bluetooth pulldown attached to the system menu at the top of the screen.

     'I trusted them with my savings:' Crypto investors scramble after accounts frozen

“I’m already considering that money gone. This is about standing up for all the people who watched my channel and trusted Celsius. They’re not going to be able to absorb a loss like I can,” Armstrong said, noting he has discussed possible scenarios with his lawyers. “This is about holding those people accountable for what they’ve done.”

     What do you mean "holding those people accountable"? How about holding yourself accountable, eh? As far as I know crypto is a legal scam.

     People iz dum. The fact that dummies scam themselves while scamming others isn't unexpected. Ideological dingdongs do just that, getting high on their own supply like Cheech and Chong.
