    Congrats! The Patreon page claims that there are about 100 patrons (at the time of writing this), so it's an over 1% “conversion rate”, which is pretty good in my opinion. I hope the network effect will accelerate the growth at a steady pace.

    I don't know if I read it somewhere, or if I just made it up, but VC is like recreational drugs. A little bit makes your life fun, but when your only purpose to exist is to get more of it, you—and the people closest to you—have an issue.

    It's honestly kind of amazing that he decided to do it himself. This is a respectable move in my opinion. I sincerely wish a peaceful election and a more prosperous democratic future to the people...

    So apparently this is a thing that exists now. I don't think I can trust Google (or any web-browser vendor for that matter) with my file system, and if Mozilla implements this, I really hope there will be a flag to disable it. The further we go, the more I wish for OSes to port OpenBSD's unveil and friends. Am I too paranoid?

    More and more I think that behaviourists mostly got it right. Kids want to fit in, they want to “act adult”. How do you use that to make them stop a hurtful behaviour? You gently make them feel...

    I can't wait to read Theo de Raadt's rant about this. It's going to be juicy. This further cements my decision that my next laptop will either be AMD-powered, or something non-x86 altogether.

    This may be more appropriate for ~science, but I felt like people may be interested in this video even if they are not interested in psychology per se.

    I still like it. Either because I've binged the first four seasons and so the fifth seemed logical, or because it reminds of my own cases of going one step forward just to make three steps back....

    I still like it. Either because I've binged the first four seasons and so the fifth seemed logical, or because it reminds of my own cases of going one step forward just to make three steps back. And besides, people don't always get a happily-ever-after in their life. “There is always more show. Until there isn't.”
