    This post came about in response to allegations of sexual assault against a Dota 2 caster with potentially more women speaking out against other men in the community soon.

    It's simple, eloquent and gets the points across pretty well.

    Fair enough, it's simple enough for me to set up the profiles initially and just set up separate shortcuts with the profile I want.

    Thanks to you and SpineEyE for the confirmation. I've tried again but still can't see it. Looking at the network connections, it's trying to reach out to https://martinheinz.dev:1234/api/v1/posts/24 and failing so I think it's a firewall issue.

    You could just have multiple Firefox profiles in that case. At work I have two separate ones, one for work related stuff and one for personal stuff.

    Still sometimes there are some sites that don't like FF but it's not something that has impaired me significantly.

    Anyone got a copy or links to other articles about the same topic?

    I can't recommend Bandcamp enough. When you buy music, you can chose to get it digitally and they offer a lot of formats including high quality ones whereas most other sites only allow you to get MP3s. If you're interested, here's a couple of recommendations:

    • Alestorm: Pirate metal band, one of my favourites. If you like sea shanties give them a try.
    • Antti Martikainen: If you like epic video game soundtracks you're likely to enjoy him as well.

    That looks very interesting but there's not much info about features. Are you aware whether it supports global keybinds and volume normalization?

    Here's what I listen to, though I've been listening less lately since I used to do that while commuting to work and that's not happening anymore:

    • Skeptics guide to the universe: Awesome science podcast. Been listening for almost 10 years.
    • The infinite monkey cage: Another science podcast by the BBC, in this one they always have at least one comedian participating which makes it easier to consume.
    • This podcast will kill you: Science podcast focused on doing a deep dive on a disease per episode. I've not listened extensively but they did a series of episodes on COVID-19, not just from a biology perspective but also social and economic.
    • Hello from the magic tavern: Comedy improv podcast where a human from earth was transported to a high fantasy world and interviews the different types of creatures there.
    • My dad wrote a porno: Comedy podcast, the host's dad wrote a series of erotic novels and he reads it on the podcast while his friends rag on it.

    I recently switched operating systems on my phone and lost some of the automated workflows I had during the transition. While I've rebuilt some of it, but it sometimes feels like I'm missing something or that I could do more, I just don't know what exactly. I'd like to hear from others here and see if they can inspire me to implement what works for them. I'm using an android phone with automate and here's the workflows that I got:

    • When plugging in the phone, set it to do not disturb and enable Bluetooth. This is for when I go to sleep so that I don't get woken up by notifications and I can listen to podcasts on my headband.
    • If at work (Based on cell towers, not GPS) set phone to vibrate, when leaving it set it to ring. I actually lost this one but haven't rebuilt it since I've not been to the office in a while.
    • Learn location. For a set time, grabs the cell towers around and stores them in a JSON file.

    What kind of automation have you implemented on your phone?

    A bit late to the party but I recommend the AcousticSheep Wireless headband. I bought mine over 3 years ago and it's still going strong. Same use case as yours, didn't care too much about the quality, more about the comfort. I sleep mainly on my sides and I have no issues with this headband, I remember the one I had previously was a bit bulky on the sides and over time it started to give me headaches.

    Looks like there will be a shutdown of non-essential services in NSW, Australia. It's unfortunate it's come down to this but the cases keep piling up and there's still people trying to live a normal life going out and socializing. Up until a couple of days ago, beaches and pubs were full but now the government has to step in.
