    Finished up Deca-Dance. Considering it was the only thing I was watching, it probably makes Anime of the Season. It feels a lot like Trigger, if you trade the incredible horniness of every main character with a more complete understanding of systemic oppression, but keep the over the top action, friendship power ups and space finale of a standard series.

    If you have YouTube Premium, or some other hypothetical way of watch YouTube videos in an ad free manner, the movies are completely free of ads.

    I think that even if he has that intention going in, this strategy requires him to have some measure of self control that I don't think he has. Heck, if he takes it to the supreme court, is it a publicity stunt or is he serious about contesting the election while being a sitting president?

    Between DCU Infinite Exclusives available day and date on their app, and Archie Comics partnering up with Comixology, this might be the start of a trend.

    So iOS has it's own version of Tasker? That's pretty neato.

    • A Retroarch core for Steam games. Box86 is the most promising, and I've seen demos that show real PC games on a portable Pi Unit, so I know it can be done, and Android is only another step up.

    • I'm also super curious about Virtual Reality productivity tools, as software horse blinders can go a long way to keep you on track when they are literally blocking out distractions and monopolize your eyes and ears.

    • Similarly, better tools for productivity on Mobile. Current me tends to kick past me's ass if we get into a disagreement on time management, so hard limits for a 24 hour period aren't going to cut it. Maybe point me into a less time sink of a direction during working hours? Or set my working app as my launcher during a set period of time?

    • Finally, if you could give me a raw data dump of my stream of consciousness into a computer so I can sort it out externally and do creative stuff real quick like, that's the dream.

    Unless there's some sort of internal tool that I'm unaware of, they're pretty locked up software wise, to the point that Project Alias is a workaround. Might be better to DIY one up with Mycroft...

    They paid $7.5 Billion for this, so I guess that Microsoft be going all in on Game Pass.

    Looks like we're borrowing a lot from House of M, with the introduction of the twins and Wanda having trouble facing reality, as well as the twins further setting up the introduction of the Young Avengers. Probably some elements of the Vision series as well, at least in setting and tone.

    If you want to cut out Android entirely and go pure super-hacker-man, you may want to go with the PinePhone from Pine64. It runs community Linux distros and is about as open as you could possibly have in this day and age. It does have proprietary blobs, but that's something you'll have to put up with if you don't want to pay $700 for a Librem, per this review.
