"How did people wake up before they could set 20 alarms on their phone," I ask myself, suddenly remembering my dad's clock radio with that big long snooze button that would do nothing but delay yet another hellish screech of FM-band static by just enough time for me to fall asleep just enough to forget what the snooze button was, preparing me to hit it yet again.

I'm still a couple months away from turning 23, but for some reason in my mind every time I try to remember my age I just default to 23, like somehow 22 is just an invisible number

I bought a VGA to HDMI converter in hopes that I could run it through my HDMI capture card and view and record the video out of things like my Powerbook and my old Gateway running Win98, but it turns out my capture card doesn't support 1024x768 ; v ;

Neither does my TV (over HDMI), so heck

Potentially Controversial Opinion 

And I do totally understand that blockchain is power hungry, but AGAIN, emissions wouldn't be a problem if REAL socioeconomic investment was made into renewable energy.

Also, EVERYTHING we do and use is dirty. Silicon, lithium, aluminum, etc manufacturing is horribly dirty and a lot of it flat out unethical. That's not going to make 99% of people protest against their phones, but rightly the awful systems in place that surround global production.

Potentially Controversial Opinion 

Like, okay, NFT. I understand why people don't like NFT and get that people see it as copyright abuse/abolition/obfuscation for small artists. STILL, using Twitter of all things to make your whole argument about "emissions" just comes off as... stupid. You're literally only mad at this thing because being mad at it is the popular thing. You don't have real reasons to dislike NFT, yet you're ready and willing to demonize people who use it.

Potentially Controversial Opinion 

I really dislike when people try to use "emissions" as a reason to bash blockchain/hyped things.

Like, it is not the fault of a given technology that the world's energy system is not sustainable. That is the fault of politicians.

Also distributed and heavy computing is everywhere. If you're going to be upset about emissions from something like blockchain, how about be upset by Facebook, Twitter, and Google's heap of data centers and power consumption?

Me thinking about exporting all my bookmarks and just starting over ๐Ÿ‘€

I have 826 bookmarks in Chrome going back to like 2012/2013 and most of them are in the bookmarks bar because I gave up on folders like 8 years ago

P.S. I'm the president ;)

Also even if you can't always make the meetings, you're definitely still free to join for chat/events. Once the HTML/CSS stuff is done we're planning on doing AI Rountable, which is going to be a series of movie nights and discussions about the implications of AI and robots in our world/society.

Drawings I did of me with various hairstyles if I can ever grow all my hair back lol. (Honestly it's a great motivator to defeat MPB -- Male Pattern Baldness, not Mississippi Public Broadcasting)

Totally not at all started by me looking through decade old files and seeing pictures of myself with actual hair
