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! 🍰
#2160 "Ken Burns Theory"
Some of the KBCU ancillary works try a little too hard to tie everything together. Doris Kearns Goodwin, the sports journalist featured in "Baseball," was somehow ALSO a famous historian who wrote bestselling biographies of Lincoln AND Johnson? Unrealistic.
Not sure why I haven't heard of #beancount until just now. I don't think it's the best personal finance software, but for municipal budgeting ... wonderfully simple, plain text and open source. What's there not to love? (Combine with Fava frontend for accessibility!)
I grew up in a world where #magnets had no place near a computer, lest you destroy your precious spinning disk data. Now they're freaking everywhere ...
Funny that just a few months ago I thought #i3wm with multiple displays was too complicated to figure out. I now can't fathom how I'd manage windows with some silly mouse. I ain't got time to manage my own windows.
Haven't touched an #ipad in years. What the hell is wrong with this interface. Nothing is discoverable, every action more than "open" or "back" requires you to know it's an iPad. At least my son seems to understand it.
I've switched from a #gtd workflow in #orgmode to more of a #daypages model that relies heavily on a prioritized projects.org file. One day I will write up my flow, but for now it's awesome to at least have something that works for me, instead of always feeling vaguely guilty about not doing my task management correctly and then guilty for not doing my tasks #layersofguilt
An understated profile, if ever there was one, said he to she in an undeniably coy brogue.
