Just a quick reminder from Slipknot in the age of data harvesting:
"We are gathered here today to get it right… repeat after me
I WILL NOT CELEBRATE MEDIOCRITY- I WILL NOT WORSHIP EMPTY
I WILL NOT LISTEN TO WORTHLESS NOISES
I WILL NOT SUBJECT MYSELF TO SELECTED PREDICTABLE CHOICES
MY TIME-MY ATTENTION-MY QUALITY SHOULD NOT BE BOUGHT AND
FOR CONVENIENCE’S SAKE… EVER"
Is it okay if you can't wake up in the morning without listening to a particular song?
Dark forests like email lists and "Slack groups are more forgiving than Liu’s black domains. They’re off-grid, but they aren’t that off-grid. Today’s black domain equivalents might be things like putting phones in freezers, Mastodon, and crypto cold storage. Not many of us are that hardcore with our digital habits yet. But when it comes to showing our true selves online, many of us are more like black domains than we care to admit."
A Unicorn Lost in the Valley, Evernote Blows Up the ‘Fail Fast’ Gospel
Bitbucket does not have a Pipeline wallboard, but you can export all your repos and Pipelines using Python.
I don't know how, but today I found this gem on the internet.
One of my blog posts made to the official bitbucket blog. Pretty big deal for me since I've never been "published" before :)
I'm back together with Evernote youguys.
It feels like getting back together with an abusive ex, but BoostNote just didn't cut it. I know Evernote still doesn't have search and replace, but who wants to do that anymore, amirite?
Syncthing only works as long as I'm only working on one device at a time, and its really broken on Android. So I'm back with Dropbox.
But I'll always love you Mastodon. You're nice, don't judge me, and don't sell my soul behind my back. And that Facebook chic really has issues.
Google: Here is somewhat of a premium phone (Pixel 3) for $800
Customers: Go Home, Google, you’re drunk.
Google: Here is a plastic version of the same phone with less features and slower hardware (Pixel 3a) for $400
Customers: it’s the best Take my money!
Google: Tricked ya!
I live in India, and I'll be voting for a new Prime Minister tomorrow.
Our news channels have taken all cues from Fox News, dividing our brains along party lines with false consciousness, and I doubt anyone knows about the issues our candidates represent, if at all.
We're mostly voting on what happened in the past, rather than what we expect from the future, but at least I'll be able to say I exercised by democratic right to pick from one of two choices in some rigged multiple-choice exam.
Scott Adams is scary in the way he manages to tackle complex issues in a funny, but spot-on way.

Finished playing Witcher 3!
This is how you build RPGs, people. Amazing story, perfect character buildup and progression, non-tedious combat and side missions.
My only gripe is that I don't get to interact with the main characters after the main quest is over. I hope they're all okay, now that I adore some of them more than most real-life humans.
Please let me know if there is a crowd-funding campaign for Witcher 4!
Thank god someone finally said it. I thought it was just me.
"The risk of thinking of your job as a higher calling"
In a love-hate relationship with technology. Haven't figured out life yet. Thoughts are my own.
