Spent the morning organizing my org file and find myself flabbergasted at the quality and volume of content worth reading on the internet. To all you authors, thank you! (specifically enjoying Chris' holiday post: nullprogram.com/blog/2018/12/2)

Why would anyone not use a tiling window manager. The idea of manually moving around windows and resizing them feels like madness to me after and

So China is growing plants on the moon. Meanwhile USA is building a wall — seems like they are a bit behind.

Attempting to move from kitty+tabs to alacritty+windows for my terminal emulation needs. Second time, wonder if it'll stick this time.

Anyone else born before 1985 humored by a high-end graphics card maker named EVGA ... I remember . I guess it was pretty high-end back in the day ...

Finally shut down my Nextcloud instance in deference to Syncthing. I love Nextcloud, but all I was using it for was file sync. And syncthing is kinda magical.

ITS THE CLOUD! <<oh, no ... that droplet and that volume aren't physically located in the same nyc1 based cloud, you have to move the volume out of nyc2, which is all the way downtown, and light fucking hates traveling to nyc1 in Queens if it can help it >>

jazzband.co but without having to move my github repos ... delightful! codeshelter.co

"Good New For People Who Love Bad News" is 14 years old. Fuck me.

Got to love when the most recent return date on your library book is from 1988 ... Brinch Hansen on Pascal Compilers, why does no one love you?

So I use Spotify a lot while driving right?

I just discovered that the Google maps interface with Spotify is 1,000X better then Spotify by itself. Not just while driving, better altogether.

1. How is Spotify this garbage at making software?
2. This is why Google has a virtual monopoly, they tend to make good stuff!

Additionally ... I wasn't aware that there really is only a single implementation of :mastodon: and it's in Ruby, and it's pretty monolithic. Think we need some alternate servers for resilience.

I give up. There is no good work flow available for Confluence. Every aspect of the software is friction. Especially when I live the rest of my life in :(

Say what you will about Yahoo and it's relevance, this is what a responsible internet citizen looks like: groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/sc

One many reasons I love ? Ability to drop down to my local timeline when I'm not feeling like drinking from a firehose. I love my instance-mates!
