Today has been the worst tease, with the weather forecast *repeatedly* asserting it's *just about* to hammer down with heavy rain, any second now, both keeping me indoors and hopeful for that soothing indoors-in-the-rain aesthetic.

It's now 1:26 AM. It's been dry all day. :dragnconfused:

Glad you asked!
1. Pages load twice as fast
2. Laptop battery lasts longer
3. My privacy isn't invaded by 50 different douchebro Silicon Valley companies
4. Your fucking site doesn't slow down my computer to a crawl and I can actually read your fucking articles

Nice day today.

(Let's not count that the sign just out of shot warns you "don't swim here, it's too polluted".)

Also, rescued a bee from a path. Watch out for exhausted bugs in bad places.

@fraggle "Remember"? I handed that to my exobrain quite possibly literally decades ago. :blobcatgooglyshrug:

Yeah sex is cool but have you tried an original IBM PC power switch *clunk* #retrocomputing

@solitaire I used to write correctly capitalized and punctuated sentences on my Nokia using T9 input, the era that defined txt spk because each character was an ordeal to enter.

but the sorta-ironic lowercase
it captures a mood
that everyone is just
always too tired

@fraggle Best I can think is that in LinCity the best thing you can really do is just reject the zoned city grid and build infinite hippy communes.

Eurgh, that sounds awful. How do coast gently to a lower speed? How do you *maneuver*?

Just had a pretty amazing game of ROOT.

Four mostly-insurgency factions.
One mostly-counter-insurgency.
The latter did not fare well.

It's been estimated that today's #Cloudflare outage is effecting about 10% of all websites world-wide.

If a lot of your online world is down right now, your word and research topic for the day is #decentralization
