@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...

I have a Google account for work, that I carefully only log in to when I need, and log out afterwards. It's so creepy and certainly not intuitive that if you happen to listen to a song on YouTube, this action will be automatically tied to that account.

I'm seeing (actual) recommendations for songs on YouTube for the first time of my life now 😂.

The most beautiful code I have ever see. It modifies itself to spin a world globe: aem1k.com/world/

café in Đà Nẵng. Look at the drink holders! Those tables are just perfect. social.coop/media/7GjrM5uC2BkC

Just ordered a second coffee. I guess it's a two-coffee-problem now.

How do you your devices? I've been running `adb backup` + `rsync` for a while now, but I feel it's not a solution I'd recommend to average users. Ideally, root access on the phone should not be required.

Someone with more experience could derive far more information.

Played all morning in a busy café in Đà Nẵng. Simply one of the best games I know, and I just discovered it recently. social.coop/media/zkdKAWlWnpSG

My instance just got a new home on a new server, upgrading from 11 to 12 on the go. I'm impressed how painless this all was.

This documentary shows an unsettling big picture of the global dairy industry. It makes me sad how people become people treating living beings as means of production and profit. arte.tv/de/videos/062939-000-A (in German)

Nope, it's a runtime configuration thing! Debian sources a global S/Mime configuration that's missing on NixOS, just copying smime.rc fixed it already. Now investigating if I can fix that package properly...

Debugging S/MIME in Mutt on ... I got a working Docker container with my configuration, so it's got to be some build configuration / dependency thing...
