@triptych I got into QiGong because I began using acupuncture to treat chronic pain, but fell in love with the system. For depression I also recommend some of the Taoist meditation techniques such as Inner Smile and the Six Healing Sounds. You might want to try acupuncture if you live in a big city and can afford it. I also find floating in a sensory deprivation tank very helpful. I forget if we already talked about that.

@triptych Awesome! I plan to start learning for the same reason. Finding an exercise system you like also helps. I love !

The head of the team has resigned. This does not bode well for the future, and affects blind developers as well.

I feel so glad I switched to last summer! I'll take Emacs over a web editor any day.

@lilo Yeah Chrome tends to have worse outside of Google's systems. My friend may have tried using Safari. I use Firefox myself. She promised to give it another shot so we'll see.

I have gotten really into over the last five months. It has helped bring my eye pain under control. You can enjoy a free Qigong online summit for the next few days. QigongGlobalSummit.com

@mookie Yes good point. i fondly remember a number of get togethers. And it did add a real social element.

@lilo I've had a good experience on the web site, though a friend said she had some issues so I'll find out what and get back to you. So far all of the buttons have read fine for me. Can you give me a specific example to test?

The developers of the appsneed to step up their . I'll try to file a few issues but don't wait for me. Label those buttons! Let me know if you would like me to test any updates. Let's make Mastodon usable by everyone!

@veer66 Ah. I learned Common Lisp in college. How would you compare it with Clojure?

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development
entirely.”

I did not expect to see this kind of introspection from Linus Torvalds lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/16/167
