"The students who exerted more self-control were not more successful in accomplishing their goals. It was the students who experienced fewer temptations overall who were more successful when the researchers checked back in at the end of the semester. What’s more, the people who exercised more effortful self-control also reported feeling more depleted. So not only were they not meeting their goals, they were also exhausted from trying." - vox.com/science-and-health/201

Folie à deux - "the presence of the same or similar delusional ideas in two persons closely associated with one another" merriam-webster.com/dictionary

…It’s also victim blaming to tell everyday people they’re at fault for using one of the two main tech platforms instead of an (as of yet inaccessible) alternative. (I have two Pinephones and my room overflows open hardware. No, I don’t blame you for using an iPhone or an Android device. You’re the victim here.)

Blame the actual culprits: clueless legislators/policymakers who allow these monopolies to continue and fail to protect our human rights. Blame Big Tech and those who enable it…

Regardless of whether Apple bows down to pressure on this, it shows you how they think. It’s their phone, not yours. Tim Apple is your daddy and as long as you live under his roof, you live under his rules. And he’s just made it clear he can enter your room whenever he likes and search your drawers. Might be time to think about moving out.

Problem is, where do you go? Do you move in with creepy uncle Google next door? No, he’s even worse.

And your banking app only works on iOS and Android…

Been testing IPset with the 10k IPs block list from the free tier of abuseipdb.com/ and it reduced the load on a LAMP server by close to 50%. Pretty amazing if these results are validated over time.

Have you ever used Fastmail? Any thoughts on the service that you would like to share?

For a long time that I noticed the same profile/photo registered on many Mastodon instances. Today I did a search duckduckgo.com/?q=%22reverendd and there are pages and pages of results of different Mastodon instances where an account with the username reverenddaeyunkimphd (or similar) was created. The photos look real (and are not always the same) but this kind of activity is usually a result of a bot.

It blows my mind that there is no simple regex to validate email.

There are websites for the sole purpose of offering a solution, like emailregex.com and threads upon threads on StackOverflow and forums of debates around the topic and still each website will randomly refuse valid emails or accept non valid ones.

"...there are two ways through life: the way of nature and the way of grace. You have to choose which one you'll follow. Grace doesn't try to please itself. Accepts being slighted, forgotten, disliked. Accepts insults and injuries. Nature only wants to please itself. Get others to please it, too. Likes to lord it over them. To have its own way. It finds reasons to be unhappy when all the world is shining around it, when love is smiling through all things." - The Tree of Life (2011)

"Andy Warhol: Somebody gave me this telephone... I think it was Edie... yeah it was Edie... and she said I could talk to God with it, but uh... I don't have anything to say... so here... this is for you... now you can talk to God." - quote from Doors movie 1991

Does anyone know where I can buy a backpack just for a laptop? No extra space, just the laptop.

“True simplicity is, well, you just keep on going and going until you get to the point where you go, ‘Yeah, well, of course.’ Where there’s no rational alternative... Making the solution seem so completely inevitable and obvious” - Jony Ive
