#Telstra's bullshit blocking of Zerohedge, Bitchute et al in an effort to stop access to footage of the NZ shooting is:
a) Useless, since it's mirrored in zillions of other places they missed,
b) Inconvenient, because I use these affected sites legitimately, and
c) Insulting, because my ISP presumes to know what is right and best for me, and has seen fit to deny me of the choice.
This behaviour is disgraceful and will only drives actual bad actors further underground to fester.
At the beginning of Skyrim, Raloff mutters "the Empire loves their damned lists." Well you know who else loves his damned lists? ME!
They take an enormous amount of stress out of life, allowing you to make better decisions, understand what you're accomplishing, prevent lots of terrible mistakes and if Legate Rikke had paid attention to her damned list, it wouldn't have taken an eldritch fire-spewing abomination to stop them from cutting my head off.
I'm rather a fan of Microsoft To-Do, personally
RFC: Unpopular opinion Show more
Don't kill the messenger. What do people pushing for #equalrepresentation think about this?
"If this analysis has any validity, the societal push to equalize #gender distributions may be deeply dysfunctional, because it can succeed only by having the perverse effect of pushing people into fields they do not prefer. Of course, on moral grounds, we want to insure that all people have equal opportunities to enter any particular career..."
Married at First Sight keeps referring to itself as 'Australia's most controversial social experiment'
What hypothesis is the show designed to test
What's the methodology
What are the metrics
What's the control group
How do they evaluate whether or not it's a success
After four seasons of this I thought maybe they'd have some of these questions bedded down by now
Getting a crazy feel it might not actually be an experiment
Kinda crazy seeing a neural network accomplish so quickly a result almost as good as a full team, this is the beginning of a renaissance in retro gaming restoration I think.
(and yeah, I play Doom on my phone... nothing like a quick blast when you're sitting on the can)
I'm really interested in figuring out a way to measure how much time I take to complete tasks at work. I am already tracking and categorising them all but it doesn't really break them down by time, just quantity.
I reckon I could get a lot more productive by being able to graph out where I'm spending the most time grinding and not really creating value. Probably emails. I spend two hours a day just answering, flagging and following up on emails.
I've learned that in a high-intensity workload, more stress comes from expecting to get it all done and then failing, than from the actual consequences of not doing it all.
It's kind of liberating to just expect everything around you to be complete chaos for a while, and focus instead on putting in order whatever things you realistically have the time and resources for.
