It takes a significant amount of effort to un-clutch yourself from the addicting aspect of social media.

Dark patterns and dopamine inducing internet 'points' are validation measures crafted to force your brain into coming back (to that conversation).

The first step is identifying these exist. The next step may be cold-turkey or gradual retreat depending on how you function. It's tough, but doable. Gaining back that control is fun.

Interested in Rust? 

This is nice, even now I've been writing #Rust for a bit. Especially useful for anyone wondering about using Rust or who is beginning to try it out.

Lots of useful early questions and quick simple answers: fosskers.ca/en/blog/rust-softw

I just heard a soccer mom say she is going to build her own website so she can get off of Facebook. If this sentiment has moved all the way into the soccer mom realm, Facebook is in trouble.

Reminder to folks in the fediverse (more specifically new folks), add a profile picture to your account. It makes it a lot easier to remember who you are and gives less the impression of you just being a spambot or something.

Bonus: You're personally expressing yourself :)

Finally tried my hand at writing a short post (first ever serious attempt). It's about web browsers. Feedback more than welcome guys 😃

Guys I'm looking for a more comprehensive calculator. Any suggestions?

😯 wanted to consolidate all my messaging apps in one place, no luck.

I've tried two: Franz and Shift but they look like electron apps (basically browser reskins). Looking for something that has it's own consistent UI across all services (slack, discord, etc)

Is there a recommendation? (preferably open source, at this point I'll settle for anything worthy)

Getting cudnn to initiate on colab is a mini nightmare (perhaps due to nvidia firewalling the runtime library)

Oh well, maybe another day.

Guys, quick question: Is there a google service you haven't been able to let go off completely?
