It is good Apple is making a spending tool that doesn't give them purchasing data.

But they're empowering one of the most abusive FIs in America with one of the most powerful consumer brands in the entire world.

GS is gonna bundle and sell advice based off their data. Apple is making a new financial Facebook with a stream of purchasing data from the top 25% richest folks in America.

It is bad.

So I'm starting to get marginally annoyed with some limitations of my pixelbook as a dev laptop
It's a fun exercise but I'm tired of swimming upstream on this. I will keep using it as a travel laptop, but I'm considering getting a real dev laptop.

I don't want to spend a ton of money, but there are *many* formerly common items I'd like to track down.

I recently saw this absolutely crazy and somehow even more racist live-action remake of "The Last Son Of The West" and in the YouTube comments someone insulted the guy by saying, "He looks like the moon had sex with a graveyard".

I'm still shook by the power of that burn.

Spent the whole night carefully modifying my position under about 8 thick blankets to optimize my fever so I didn't inadvertantly go over 101. Surprisingly tiring.

How I imagine antenna and radio design works:

You must carefully follow the sacred geometry as handed down by the ancients; a random configuration of metal and frequencies either won't work (if you're lucky), or will attract the attention of eldritch horrors.

How antenna and radio design probably actually works:

The same, but s/eldritch horrors/exasperated and overworked FCC field agents/.
