rational me: i have a deadline for the project demo tomorrow. among other things, i just need a simplest possible web app to show that the API works. it doesn't need to look fancy, just a few lines of vanilla javascript...

me: a perfect opportunity to learn svelte.js! maybe also find some nice template... now on to spend the next hour searching for a nice color scheme!

rational me: but we don't have time! we still have to...

me: [checking out the svelte getting started]

new hobby for this year: correcting people that use 2k20 as 2020

Studio [1] is awesome tool for anyone into electronics! It can remotely control most SCPI enabled instruments (for example Rigol oscilloscope) and fetch screens or waveform data (and do some analysis on it) into journal-like session which is locally stored (in sqlite db) so you can have complete history of the measurements, comments and attached files while developing a project. It's developed by folks behind the amazing and open source power supply

HAL 9000 was a lesson in checking for race conditions. Also of having an off switch

switched from vim to and from YouCompleteMe+ALE to CoC. haven't yet experienced some more advanced differences but i like neovim's "fancy" GUI features. on the other hand CoC handles contextual completion and linting much better than YCM (for python and JS) and i'm quite happy with it. but had to "turn it down" a quite a bit as the auto completion is pretty aggressive and pops up constantly.

I need this in my lab.

"Do you have something to hide?" is a manipulative rebuke to those that use #encryption.

It would help us all turn this conversation around. Because, the answer is: YES, we do have something to hide.

Things that we should hide, and must question why a government or business NEEDS access to:

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...
