The only real downside is that it ships in October; that's 4 months from now. I want to make lifestyle changes NOW dangit :P
I'm really considering getting this phone (thanks for the tip @ink_slinger ):
Super small, latest Android, waterproof (!!!).
I hope to use it less than I use my current phone (far too large phone, maybe I'm just pendulum swinging too far to the other side?) for being present in my life reasons.
First world problem:
When your landowners switch to a property management company and the grounds people (lawn mowing etc) are way less efficient/quick and way more noisy.
Got an email from AT&T today with a subject line of "What's better than 1 new iPhone?"
Zero, zero new iPhones.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_browsing_history Suggests the #Google Toolbar does this but I don't want that :)
The rest of the first page of results in https://duckduckgo.com/?q=search+personal+web+history&t=ffsb&ia=web are all about deleting your search history from Google et al :P
But based on the archive.org history they "pivoted" a few times to doing different things: https://web.archive.org/web/*/www.infoaxe.com
Social media was a mistake. Let's revert to web 1.0: forums, blogs and email newsletters. I'm only half joking.
I really wish I had a local proxy for my browser that cached all page hits (maybe have a file size limit to not cache big videos) that I could easily #search against eg:
"find the word 'lawn' in pages I read in the last month"
That way I could get that one article I'm thinking about right now. I have no clue where it was or what network shared it.
Does #searx do this?
"Although Microsoft has captured the public’s attention, it’s far from the only big tech company currently working with ICE. Public records show tens of millions of dollars in contracts with branches of Dell, Motorola and HP, providing crucial hardware and other infrastructure for the agency."

I can feel that I'm on the verge of a big anxiety crush that is only intensified by the state of our world, especially 45 and all the horrible people who enable him.
I've started writing more politics stuff on FB, which is never a good sign.
At first, those posts help me get out my frustration but over time they tend to suck away my ambition (as people I know/were friends with show me how horrible they are :( ).

ICE doesn't combat sex trafficking; they create it
>A Texas sheriff's deputy was being held Monday on a charge of "super aggravated sexual assault" of a 4-year-old girl after authorities say her mother, an undocumented immigrant, was being blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse — or face deportation

Another day, another reason to be ashamed of the government we are under.
The Minister of the Interior (who is de facto the most powerful person in the country) called for the registration of all the Roma people in the country.
This is one way for the government to see how much people in #Italy will resist the idea of ethnic profiling. They start with the most ostracized ethnicity in the country to see how far they can push their racist policies.
I'm on a school trip to Italy and Greece, with a focus on interviewing migrants and refugees, conducting interviews, documenting their situation, and gaining real world reporting experience.
My first two blog posts are up: https://blog.legoktm.com/2018/06/17/day-1-visiting-a-migrant-camp-in-rome.html and https://blog.legoktm.com/2018/06/17/day-2-maintaining-eye-contact.html
More to come hopefully.
Doing the garage sale thing today. We've (mostly Carrie) been working on it all week sorting and all that.
So far so good.
I *really* don't want to put all this stuff back in the garage.
But of course it works in #Chrome.
Google, you promised you would make this work with Firefox and I believed. For the last time.
