tech complaint 

had to clean out my usbc port real well to fix battery charging, and in the process caused some problems with the speaker and front camera. speakers needed to be unclogged after their lint solidified into mortar, and the front cam got alcohol vapor behind the lens so it's foggy and slowly getting better

Thoughts on enlightenment desktop 

@soft you have to understand enlightenment as a life form that branched off long ago from what's now common

building the future is not a purely technical project, I don't even think it's a primarily technical project. it's a project of community and people, which is to say is inherently political. I think that word is a turn off to many programmers in the West who (due to Cold War era education I guess?) are effectively politically illiterate. and when you insist on being "apolitical" then all you can do is bolster the status quo. this is not how you make progress.

> “You have to understand they are very scary,” Shenzhen Open Innovation Lab Executive Director David Li says, referring to the grandpas and grandmas who make up the tiny car’s target market. He is completely serious. “They’re Mao’s Red Guards. Do you think they care about officials cracking down on them when they’re in their 70s?”

@Linux_in_a_Bit things that are fast on computers have always been an outlier. you get used to multitasking.

@spacekookie could be a number of things but i'd place my bet on noise from the switching psu causing a false trip on a GFCI or AFCI breaker

@SuricrasiaOnline the walls are covered with graffiti from the many people who have been there before

I'm kind of annoyed that "self-care" has become conflated with "treat yourself". Yes, sometimes treating yourself can be an act of self care

But most of prioritizing self care is meeting your core needs. It's telling yourself it's ok to take time to eat a healthy meal or take a shower. It's making sure you put the things you need to be healthy at a higher priority

The whole "self care is luxuries" captialist takeover of an important mental health concept just chaps me

Windows 11 is coming out soon, but I'm waiting for Windows for Groupwork 11.3
