@JohnPhilpin I did see the Animal Crossing thing… I understand what you mean.

@JohnPhilpin What was the last straw?

@frankm I had the same thoughts concerning free speach.

@patrickrhone I guess expecting something different to happen when we keep doing the same things would be the definition of insanity. I heard the DA's press conference today. I do not want your prediction to be true, Patrick, but I do expect it to be so.

@JohnPhilpin So, so shocked…

@patrickrhone And those are the hardest facts we face.

@patrickrhone ❤️

@JohnPhilpin Indeed! I was relatively happy to see them!

@patrickrhone I agree. What is in the phone and what one might avoid by focusing on the phone instead are the right questions. Curation of notifications: aural, visual and haptic has been an important part of reclaiming my tiny attention span.

@patrickrhone I agree with that assessment… I hope it works well for both entities. Ideas like Keybase need more traction.

@patrickrhone Thank you for this!

@patrickrhone Boom

@simonwoods I have some older Logitech gear I'm going to experiment with, if I catch your meaning.

@manton Bless you

@patrickrhone Also, time watching progress bars is some sort of time-expansion experience where there is ample opportunity to speculate on the chess-board-like menu of possible outcomes

@patrickrhone IT work is similar to the aircraft pilot’s lament: long periods of interminable boredom punctuated with moments of sheer terror.

@bix Totally agree. Took a few minutes to complete for the household. Was surprised by the mandate for freeform self-identification of ethnicity.

@bix I appreciate that information.

@odd That is a treasured song and album. I have been listening to their music chronologically recently

@kaa (a propos of nothing...) Did you roll your own Micro.blog theme? I love the simplicity and the typography!

@Burk I'm with you there. In my case that ends up being a handy repository of lightly curated items I have obtained, versus other folders that have different gravity in different contexts.

@bix I love this. Thank you.

@patrickrhone Thank you for the link! Isn't it amazing that for all of our claims of logic and rationality, we are truly emotional beings at our cores?

@manton Grateful for this functionality. I feel the conversations could be an additional lure into the community.

@JohnPhilpin In practice the flexibility is a non-issue. They are substantially stiffer than traditional laces, but not in a way that would prevent any known lacing scheme. I think they are called "iron" laces because the knot doesn't budge and they do not untie.
