Please, if you listen to nothing else I say, listen to this: Talk to your depressed friends. Don't be afraid to reach out to them. Don't expect them to have the energy and presence of mind to reach out to the people they need to.
Reach out to them and try whatever you can to slow, stop, or counteract their spiral. Because if you leave them alone, they will not fix themself.

Did you guys know you can use Spotify songs for alarm tune on Android's clock?! Feels bad to be tracked by Google and Spotify at the same time, but damn what a cool feature.

Problem of the century: earphones that do not fit your ears.

Just got a new phone. Cool stuff. However, this whole SIM card size thing pisses me off! I'll have to cut my old SIM cards so they fit on my new phone!

Consider the hacker.

We deal in arts and occult knowledge not possessed by the masses.

We are the modern equivalent of a shaman, high priest, or wizard.

We use occult knowledge, secret languages, and passphrase to summon technological constructs into reality.

Our scripts are golems.

Our circles of defense are just that.

Microsoft Store:

"Debian GNU/Linux - Download this app for Windows 10..."

Nothing like having a industrial-strength, enterprise-class OS reduced to being described as an "App", on par with Candy Crush.

By the way, a friend asked me if it would be possible to write something similar to the program Ken Thompson wrote in C for his article "Reflections on Trusting Trust", but this time in Lisp. I still have to revisit the article, but it sounded like something fun to think about from scratch.
I think I'll also write a blog-- I mean, phlogpost about it pretty soon.

Next on my list of deletion is my Instagram account. Unfortunately I still feel too attached to it, but I'll try cutting ties ASAP.
Not that social media is inerently evil, but it bothers me to feel so much attachment to virtual content.

Okay, gopherhole added to profile, pic changed once more.

Now for the rest, lol.
