I'm still alive :P

Just haven't been using "social media" much.

Unless you count Reddit or Discord. In which case, I have.

I just installed Xfce4 on my Ubuntu laptop (formally windows 8) and now my laptop feels quick and modern. This is why I love FOSS so much. You can't do this with Windows!

Nope. Back to Windows. Razer Synapse is Windows only :(

Hey typography geeks!

What's your thought on spaces around em dashes?

I've always been of the opinion that em dashes shouldn't have spaces around them.

However, recently I've noticed that this doesn't work all that well in monospaced fonts (where em dashes, "—", are frequently not any longer than en dashes, '–").

And, many times (e.g., email) I don't know what font will be used. So I'm thinking about adding spaces as a general practice.

Thoughts?

Anyone know how to bypass space to dash conversion in Discord channel names? The double thin space trick doesn't work anymore in the API.

It seems that macOS has become very locked down lately. They moved a bunch of config files to a read-only partition.

Huh macOS is really nice. I rebooted from Bootcamp and now I kind of want to stay.

I never know how much to spend on concert tickets.

If I get better seats, will I feel more pressure to enjoy it, and then enjoy it less?

opennic.org seems pretty cool. Doesn't seem like there's much on there though :(

My Android device gives the best advice! Clear up those memes!

Just a pretty picture of my board with some RPi hats on it. All the lights made it too shiny to avoid picture taking
