all i can say about 1password is that it gets my highest possible praise for a product, which is that i use it every day, it works perfectly, and i never need to think about it except when nerds get really upset about it online for whatever reason it is this time
the enlightened orange website user, on a tab about facebook: "if you're not paying, YOU'RE the product"

on a tab about 1password: $3/month is too much, use this free oss program with terrible ux instead
"ugh, an online vault that Just Works across every device you own no matter the OS? don't use that! just put this file in your dropbox and make sure to configure all the various apps to use that and if it gets out of date just manually re-sync it"
"this app uses 105mb of ram, what an outrage," he types in a browser window that is currently using 3gb
anyway. nothing is perfect. get mad if you want. i always just get slightly sad when a real, useful thing that actually serves a pretty important purpose gets trashed by nerds all the time

you know what's better than some extra RAM? not using the same password everywhere

PSA: I plan on blogging about this, but haven’t yet, but semver is now a dtolnay crate. There’s basically nobody else I’d have given this too. Very glad to see what he’s doing with it
I have been trying to get a 1.0.0 across the line for like two years. It’s kind of been an albatross for me. He actually did it, and it’s very good.

on my sixth week of bullet journaling. I didn't really give it a chance before, but after seeing some tweets (I believe from @yoshuawuyts) and reading about its creation, I decided to give it a try regardless of my feelings.

i am so glad i did.
i like it so much i actually am considering trying to do a paper-based zettlekasten and just like, end my accounts with various online-based productivity and knowledge management tools.
i've got a lot more to say here. maybe i'll blog someday. let me write that down in my "projects quick capture" page...

I am gonna die
Okay number two I had a tiny tiny bit and thought “this is fine” but I know better, gave it a second, and it’s still fine but I feel it in my whole mouth. Not sure when I’ll feel okay about trying 3, I put too big a dab hahah
Haven’t died yet. FUCK that is spicy though. I could not eat a full wing with this on it

This week’s experiment: a YouTube Short. Vertical video, one minute long at most.

It’s tough to fit things into just a minute! My first attempt had ten extra seconds…
It is a lot less work overall to make a sixty second video than the ten-minute ones though. Which was nice because I’ve had less time these last two weeks.
... can you tell the point where The Algorithm decided to start promoting my video?

the plot thickens. and by "thickens" i mean "cargo is passing the right flags so, wtf Image
