🛫 Flying home today. I will see my family for the first time in more than a year. Excited. 😊

Two times a lunar month turns into a vegetarian paradise. Perfect evening to "đi ăn vặt" and have dinner along the streets.

“I’m against surveillance capitalism but Google’s service is listed first on my app because it is so popular” is the “I’m against the tobacco industry but I offer anyone coming into my home a cigarette because smoking’s so popular” of tech.

If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.

A while ago I've removed the always-visible, ever-ticking clock in the bottom-right corner of my screen.

It made me realize how often I subconsciously looked at it. Turns out, the current time is usually not relevant at all, so I got better at setting alarms for time-bound events and removed one (albeit minor) source of distraction.

@cwebber @emacsen Just discovered there's a new episode of Libre Lounge already and wanted to say hi and thanks for all the good stuff! 🙂 I really enjoy listening to you both.

How apps on Android share data with Facebook...

At least 61 % of apps automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment people open the app, whether they have a Facebook account or not, or whether they are logged into Facebook or not.

Finally got my Haskell program to run on Android using Termux. Just required qemu emulating an aarch64-Debian on my laptop, compiling for almost two days (dependencies, yay!) and proot'ing into another Debian on Termux to actually run it...

There's got to be a better way. But for now I'm just happy the endless bit-crunching was not useless :-).

A sweet gift for children here in for the upcoming mid-autumn festival. Adults like it, too 😊.

Moving is a breeze when everything you need fits on one scooter and your way is across beautiful Hải Vân pass.

@emsenn Just read your post on the Consumer Cost of the Bullshit Web… you might “enjoy” this: observer.com/2016/10/aral-balk :)

Experimentally switched to yesterday. Trying to be productive in a new environment is the best way to see if it works out. So far I really enjoy saving that extra set of navigation shortcuts. It feels more sluggish than XMonad, though...
