opinions on screen size, long 

4:3 is a great size for a screen, and 16:9 is worse.

• most programs have toolbars on the top/bottom, meaning you use vertical space much more than horizontal space
• the extra horizontal space you have is often unused when reading documents
• most desks have a practically unlimited amount of vertical space, so making your screen taller is unlikely to get in the way of other things on your desk

lt: friendly reminder your “carbon footprint“ as an individual human consumer is a scam made up by corporations to both guilt trip and misdirect you

Is it just me, or does Gen Z overwhelmingly not know how to pirate shit anymore?

Like, back when I was in school, *literally* everybody was pirating – even the baptist kid who wasn't allowed to watch TV because of some obscure bible verse.

do not throw away coffee grounds
coffee grounds are good for your plants
coffee grounds are good for your skin (exfoliating scrub)
coffee grounds repel insects and molluscs (and cats)
coffee grounds (dry) can neutralize odors
coffee grounds can be used on icy sidewalks instead of salt or sand
coffee grounds with hot water can unclog drains
coffee grounds can tenderize meat

It's interesting that many people are willing to be critical of apple and google et. al. but they are reluctant to consider the idea that the design of the smart phone might be anything other than an inevitable step in a kind of natural technological evolution.

It's almost as if the conventions of the category "smart phone" have effectively shut down the imagination for any alternative ways of using a computer.

I don't think there has ever been anything so effective at inducing compliance on a global level. And I think, deep down, it bothers a lot of people, not just smart-phone refuseniks but also apple/google fans. But it is so overwhelming and personal in this sense of fait accompli that nobody wants to discuss it because it feels like living in a strange consumerist dictatorship of pseudo-convenience.

did i just run through the pouring rain to take down a hammock just for the rain to stop like 5 minutes later..?

i often find myself preferring pdfs because of their usual lack of dynamically generated content, which can make it significantly easier to focus on the actual content.

I'm looking to talk to someone, ideally from an agency or small cooperative, who has switched to Nextcloud.

I'm interested in how people have things like Time Tracking and Deck configured for project/client work.

(please boost!)

if some people actually left the communities they plague, user freedom would be better off

in many cases they are the most prolific contributors (after having cleaned the field from decent people with their toxicity)

Very in-depth social engineering Discord scam, PLEASE BOOST FOR VISIBILITY :boost_requested: 

I've never seen a Discord scam like this, and I almost fell for it. A hacked account will DM you with "bro idk if you're being impersonated or what but they exposed your dms in [INSERT SERVER HERE] with that girl and like what the fuck?? im sorry but i dont associate with those types of people so if you cant explain it then i will be blocking you." and immediately block you.

Upon joining the server, it'll ask you to verify with Wick bot, but it's a fake Wick bot that asks you to scan your Discord mobile app for QR code verification.
