Kind of strange how after a week or two off of macOS I really haven't encountered any friction large enough to make me go back

@z428 @shahaan "RTFM" wouldn't be so prevalent if FOSS boys were capable of empathy

FOSS boys: phew I finally got my emails working on my phone, it took me a week, involved a soldering iron, and I had to write a patch for a library

Also FOSS boys: people choose the convenience of Apple/Google/Microsoft because they're lazy and stupid, anybody can switch to Arch and PostmarketOS and self-host everything

Firefox 81 has a purple theme. I'm switching to this permanently. Hell yeah.

Spelunky and its sequel are two games that people hold up as masterpieces of the roguelike genre that are built well and execute well.

I typically like roguelikes and roguelites and I just don't understand why- but I do not like the Spelunky aesthetic or gameplay style. I find it incredibly boring and repetitive.

I think it's just not for me- those of you that love it- I am not trying to take away from that. I just feel like I'm missing something everyone else can see

at least FB (yeah i haven't left yet) has a "restricted list" option where people are still technically on your friends list but can't see anything you post. i use it for people that would probably be annoying if i defriended them.

reminder to cull your lists of friends, family, others. restrict some. cut off others completely.

(mostly about FB) if you're a person that thinks every post i put on social media is an invitation to debate or give your input, no matter how small (like "laugh reacting" serious posts as a way to disagree) you can fuck off forever

sad that some distant acquaintance from high school apparently recently converted to catholicism and can't keep his fucking mouth to himself

<rant over>

could not stop going back to bed yesterday. think i was deprived of sleep during the week too much. hate to use up so much of my weekend, though.

at least i've got today

starting to have some colder nights/mornings and then warm days

going to resist turning on the heat as much as i can because i prefer it colder and then to use blankets and whatnot

uspol, intra-left criticism 

"The Supreme Court is fake anyway" is grounds for an ass-beating when Roe v. Wade, Obergefell, etc are at stake

MORE REAL PEOPLE will face MORE IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCES that do not give a shit about you philosophizing about your perfect anarchist utopia
