Four day weekends rock. I feel refreshed, and there's still Sunday!

@aphyr Yeah. I have heard of (and seen) more than a few people just bawling some time after getting their shots, as the emotional impact of the past year starts to be thawed out.

@aphyr Now that I’m at a keyboard, to elaborate: I think having a distinction between “this is documented and we publicly commit to it” and “this is use-at-your-own-risk” is fine, but “you literally cannot access this from where you are” never makes me feel comfortable.

@aphyr Coming as I do from Python land, I don't really understand why one would ever make things private.

In case you need to hear it today, just picture Fučík’s “Entrance of the Gladiators” playing in your head, forever.

@aphyr I love how we computer people always develop super-niche non-computer interests. I mean that dead-seriously, I think it's a spiritual good.

@aphyr I haven't touched it in about six years, but glad to see Ethereum is still bad in every way.

@lrhodes it's not quite what you might expect, but I enjoyed The Swerve.

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.


@aphyr @FunkyBob @Gargron yeah, 3.1 was my first Windows, but that's because I count DOS as a distinct thing.

I have now seen what it looks like when Lisa Frank has been digested by HR Giger. I would rather I had not.

@mhoye (deliberately obtuse) I fall to see what that has to do with PUA bullshit.

Got waste-prevention protocol vaccine yesterday, up in Cheyenne. Feeling a little woozy still, but also a little elated.

Y'know what I want to see more of? Post-dystopia stuff. Gimme those cyberpunk cities with community-made murals being painted over the billboards, those soil-remediation and reforestation projects breathing life into what was once poisoned wasteland

@aphyr I thought we banned PCBs in like the 80s or something.

@MangoMamba I should get my pens out, it's been too long! All my life is on the computer lately.

@aphyr tbh if it were for me, I'd leave that out entirely, but I've mixed enough drinks to recognize that as taste, not absolute truth!
