Why does media management suck so much? I just want my downloaded mp3s organized so I'm not digging around for them. Beets tries to be smart, but fucks it up more often than not. Clementine works okay, but has weird visual glitches and tiny fonts... EMMS does alright, but updating the database is a huge pain in the ass...


Interesting: I've taken to blocking/clearing persistent cookies except for some preferred sites. This means that I am frequently logged out of services. The net effect of all of this is that I'm less tempted to log back in, and am more thoughtful about blindly logging into things, as I've made it slightly more inconvenient.

Mozilla, I... I think we need to talk about the kinds of people you're hanging out with...

WebEx shenanigans this morning. Great way to start the week.

Next up: 20 tickets of various issues.

My son loves it, and he wants to make his own. I'm considering making some QR codes that link to a site congratulating them for finding it (including whatever is there).

I did some extending and cleaning up of notmuch, detailed here[1]. I have two "delete" functions. One is 'trash', which gives me thirty days to change my mind. Useful for stuff I've processed, but might need. 'Delete' is a tag for stuff that's just filler crap. That gets killed at the next mail check.
