@manton ooh... this makes me want to get some LEGO. Also, a LEGO tag in Discover. 🤓
@cgrayson Duly noted!
@patrickrhone This was my revelation, too: stop paying $70 for dress shoes I have to replace every year; spend 5x as much and keep them 10-20x as long!
@patrickrhone Gorgeous! Being able to maintain things like leather goods that just get better and better the more we use them is—ahem—what we believe in. ❤️
@jsonbecker I like the accessory dwelling unit office, but alternatively I’d go for a meticulously restored attic with a massive skylight. 😍
@patrickrhone This is a good idea. Fits with my recent digital minimalism kick. I’m putting it in my calendar. ❤️
Broke: “I will carefully portion out this meal for maximum efficiency.”
Woke: OM NOM NOM
@brucegodin Gorgeous! I haven’t been to the Fraser Valley in ages. 🏔
@bix As far as I’m concerned, the 2013 default WordPress theme is the high-water mark. 😛
@jsonbecker oooh... Scallion. Pancakes. 👀😋
@brentsimmons by providing that last link, you’ve allowed us to become...
Key value observers. 😏
...I’ll show myself out.
@patrickrhone ...Further, journaling by hand could be additive. There are things I plop into my digital journal that don’t need to be unearthed by my grandchildren (“nice walk today”), but I could always write my thoughts on paper in addition to those.
@patrickrhone Indeed! Thanks for the reminder. There are aspects of journaling with my phone instead of paper that I enjoy... but none of them are insurmountable. And the point about the fragility of digital is well-taken.
Plaintext seems the least-fragile digital option.
@incanus Nice! I ❤️ retrocomputing projects. 😍🤓
@patrickrhone ...well, shit. 😳
(Also: The argument that COVID isn’t a big deal because other causes are (were) more deadly is ridiculous on its face anyway, because COVID deaths are additive. It’s not like we swapped 100,000 murders for 50,000 COVID deaths so, yay, net win. All the other causes happened, AND ALSO all these people are dying from COVID. FFS. 🙄)
@manton That looks great! I’m excited about this. 🤓
@aaronpk “Dude, you’re standing in my corona.”
@jsonbecker You're certainly committing to the bit, I'll give you that. 😂👍🏼
@jsonbecker I’ll have to check it out! By the way, your parents were forward-thinking to name you after such a popular data-interchange format. 😏
@jsonbecker if it helps, it’s probably sufficient to just hate Twitter... 🙃
@odd I am trying my utmost to avoid indulging in that particular narcissistic fantasy, thank you. 🤣
@Gabz "TIL" that Ben Thompson has a side blog. 😍 Thank you!
