I've completely given up on #bluetooth headphones. Which is ironic because I feel like the rest of the world has doubled down on them. I'm pretty happy with my wires, both for running and desk work.
Well. I tried for a long time to stick with Firefox + Tridactyl, but I'm back to using #qutebrowser Stupid webkit.
Just set my android device to use my #pihole dns server ... holy fuck. That's a) a lot of DNS queries and b) a lot phone-home crap that just feels dirty. I might have to go back to a feature phone after this experience.
@cancel as a follow up to the discussion about threads. I've found my solution to be liberal use of tabs for threads I'm participating in.
It may still be nice to receive a notification to new activity in a thread I'm participating in, but again, the UX for that seems questionable
Very hot take about videogame violence and influence
People grumbling that blaming videogame violence as a bad influence on people are conveniently missing the point that it's the culture and attitudes surrounding videogames that's a big problem rather than the content in the video games.
It's very difficult to argue that a small army of angry white teenagers goading each other on to be progressively more shitty people to fit in, with videogames as the common ground, is a positive thing
@cancel you know, I don't think my issue with #ripcord right now is a bug, per-se. It's that when I respond in a thread, it'd be great to get auto-signed up for notifications from new thread posts. Maybe there's a reason that flow doesn't exist, but it's what I've grown to expect from the Slack client.
@stavros oh my god, Ripcord is a dream ... especially because now I can stay logged to all the little minor Slack communities I belong to. Also, I wish Slack wasn't the default these days :(
Got my first #morakniv in the mail the other day. It's a five-inch stainless blade in a hunter-orange sheath and I love it. Perfect for always having on hand around the farm. I am unlikely to ever lose it in the weeds, too!
I know I'll probably get shit for this ... but I still think I like #phabricator workflow better than most source management tools. Email is a lowest common denominator, but if you're gonna be opinionated, I like the review-based flow.
Goddamn I'm sick of everything running through #medium these days. It seemed like we were working away from it, but I guess profitable habits die harder 😑
Been using a personally hosted #searx install for about 3 months now. Number of google searches in my google history: 5 Two times I wanted NBA scores quickly. Three times I accidentally used Google on my phone. Delightful.
PSA most weather apps are goverment funded forecasting wrapped in ads. #Wx is a fantastic, free weather app that gives you raw gov forecasts. You already paid for it with your tax dollars anyhow
Google still keeps a list of everything you ever bought using Gmail, even if you delete all your emails
Google tracks everything you buy using Gmail to gather the receipts for a Purchases list it saves. It says you can delete this by deleting the email, but three weeks after Todd Haselton deleted all his Gmail messages, the list is still there.
Happy birthday, FreeBSD! 🍰
An understated profile, if ever there was one, said he to she in an undeniably coy brogue.
