    I picked up "Shadowrun: Hongkong" during a recent GOG sale and been playing that. I quite like it, but as someone relatively new to the Shadowrun universe I wish some mechanics would get explained more. Especially durign fights it happens that some stuff just happens without me knowing what caused it, how I can prevent it in the future, and what's going on.

    I also bought Into The Breach, from the guys who made FTL. It's very FTL-y, but feels less frustrating to me. So I can recommend it if you liked FTL or the concept of it

    I just finished All My colors by David Quantick this morning, and I quite liked it! got the Apprentice Adept series by Piers Anthony queued up next.

    The current audiobook I'm listening to is The Dark Forest by Liu Cixin which I enjoy, but with the same caveats as the first one: Those Chinese names are giving me a hard time, especially in audio form!

    I'm not good at the game by any measure, so I'm not using any kind of advanced ones. My current favorites are:

    • Bottleneck which shows a little indicator on machines if they're going at full speed, and
    • Squeak Through which allows you to walk over pipes, solar panels, etc

    For myself I've found that consistency is the key. I get up every day at the same time, ande ven on the weekends don't go to bed (much) later and get up (much) later. I used to set an alarm clock on the weekends to stay in the habit (plus, morning runs before it gets hot in the summer are the best), but that's not necessary anymore. I tend to wake up a tad later on weekends than on weekdays, but that's mostly because I'm not as strict with my bedtime then. (That is, half an hour later or so is okay)

    I also have a fixed routine in the morning (get up, small workout, shower, duolingo, and then I read for a bit until I leave for the office). I usually skip it on weekends, but I want to eventually get around and keep it up even then.

    Aldi does that in the US. Might be because they're German and this type of shopping cart is very common in Germany, and a few other mostly European I think) countries

    I really want a Vivaldi, but based on Gecko. Guess I'm stuck with FF. (Stuck is a strong word though, it is a good browser)

    Just a note: 1Password (and likely a bunch of the other suggested ones, although I don't use them) allows you to set a strong masterpassword and then a PIN to unlock on the phone. I've found this...

    Just a note: 1Password (and likely a bunch of the other suggested ones, although I don't use them) allows you to set a strong masterpassword and then a PIN to unlock on the phone. I've found this pretty useful when I used 1P on my iPhone 5 due to the lack of fingerprint reader
