The economy's been drunk on cheap credit for too long, and now comes the hangover.

"#DirectAirCapture is currently categorized as “technology readiness level” 6 (on a scale of 1 to 9), meaning it’s still in the large-scale and prototype phase, not yet ready for full commercial deployment. But this also means there’s ample opportunity to improve performance and reduce costs through learning from early iterations of the #technology. "

I do so love being justified.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

One lesson I've learned along the way in life: Don't strive to be interesting. It's just a form of attention-seeking and anyone worth having in your life will pick up on it.

Be substantive. Stop caring what people think and stop chasing their approval. You'll implicitly become more interesting to others, but it will carry less weight, because you'll value yourself enough to not need the validation.

Have fun and give some love to the musicians who made this possible! :blobhaj_heart:

Since it's night again, and I'm getting ranty as usual: someone needs to write a paper entitled "Discord Considered Harmful".

It's one of the most annoying antipatterns I've seen in both software projects and communities like #hackerspace - centering community around a group chat (Discord, Slack, Telegram groups, and yes - IRC), in lieu of a proper forum *and maintaining documentation*.

Such software is not suitable for long-term knowledge maintenance, and excludes people who can't track discussions live.

look i don't know what all these liberals are complaining about. if those babies want formula they just need to pull themselves up by their diapers and work for it. if they want formula they should have a job so they can afford it. maybe learn to code in the womb? thats just the realities of capitalism. every moment not working is a moment not contributing, and if those children want their formula by god they should have to work for it

Mh stuff 

Sleep deprivation is absolutely worsening my adhd symptoms and it's very frustrating, after a good year or so of my medication giving me a marked improvement in symptoms. I'm very ready to start sleeping through the night regularly again.

With 20 you think you know the world.
With 30 you think you know your friends.
With 40 you start questioning if you even know yourself.
