Throw out social media. Stop looking at and watching what other people are doing, instead of doing things *YOU* want to do.
Stop believing it's a form of entertainment. It's not entertainment, just pseudo-entertainment, which is a fancy noun for a fraudulent phenomenon intentionally trying to pass as genuine entertainment.
Instead, make content that you enjoy, even if it's only for yourself or an extremely small audience, instead of attempting to consume the entire Internet of Garbage.
He's spoiled me for hosting. I recently went shopping for Nextcloud hosts and had a hard time finding the kind of service provided from @mastohost.
Last week's pitch got me in the door somewhat, but I was cautioned that it might not be a good fit.
So, I sent over my rough draft against my own desire to put the best foot forward. Honesty, my piece may not be right for the site.
That's okay. Kudos for me for trying. I'd like to do this more often and get back on the horse, as they say.
@kai It hasn't been purposeful. I've just been busy doing stuff.
@lnxw48a1 I know this temptation well. I used to ship my camera gear for gigs outside the state and that was dreamy compared to travelling with it. Get a nice pelican case and never look back, my friend.
@kai I've been somewhat disconnected lately, but I have noticed you have a few posts about making music. That's rad. I'm very happy for you.

Consider using just steady lights instead of blinking ones. I am epileptic and have to bike everywhere to get around. Blinking lights, at best, give me a searing headache, and at worst a seizure.
Yes, it may take more battery or more charge power, but you are Still visible and not hurting people's heads and putting them at risk.
@Ricardus It's warmer now. It moved from -28°C to -22°C. Lucky me. 🤨
Stay safe and be careful in the snow.
@jeena My partner uses Mixbook which is all online. I'm not a fan of the security issues personally, but she likes it. We have about a dozen of the books. They seem to contract to local-ish printers so you get your books very quickly. So, that's nice.
Always been on the beta channel for Firefox. Now that I'm mainly using Linux as a daily driver, I'm annoyed that I have to update Firefox in terminal all the time. I'm used to just clicking the update button in the browser via MacOS and WinBlows.
It's no big deal doing in the terminal, it's just the extra steps of building and then me having to put my password in whenever it finally finishes.
I spent 2 hours trying to get internet back to the Windows 10 desktop I share with my partner. She pulled me away because I was getting really frustrated. I'm grateful for the break but eventually I'm going to have to sort that.
Upside: more reason to get aways from Windows completely and ditch Adobe products for open source.
Also fuck Microsoft and their horror story updates. Why do I pay money to be a beta tester?
