@kelbot Yeah, I have like five main ways I can get to work, so it's a gamble as to which has the least amount of traffic if I just choose randomly.
Does anybody know of a routing app for a Google-free that also includes traffic? OSMAnd is handy but useless to me when I need to navigate the traffic hell that is this city, and MAPS.ME traffic doesn't seem to work (says I need to update the app despite having manually installed their APK).
I'm holding out for the F-Droid fork to work do test as it's currently broken and can't download an intro map due to locks turned on by the MAPS.ME upstream.
@johnbessa Basically reaching the upper limit of what I wanted to pay, just north of $300. Not too bad considering the storage space, honestly.
Finally took a jump and upgraded my aging phone. It had stopped receiving updates sometime early last year (thanks network provider). Got a OnePlus5 for cheap with 128GB of storage and finally did what I've wanted to do since the cyanogenmod days and flashed LineageOS without GApps.
Feels so nice to have a deGoogled phone!
vba rant, profanity
@chozron Yeah it's a mess, it's the main reason I've been transitioning everything I can to Python. VBA is an absolute headache to deal with
@lee8oi I haven't but I'll look into them! I think the most trouble is when I try and keep working on my project after work on weekdays. I get so burnt out that it's hard to focus but I try to get something done since there's always do much to do on the weekend.
I feel like a lot of time I spend coding ends up with me starting at my screen and trying to figure out the best way to solve a problem. Not like it's bad, trying to be an efficient coder is important (despite it just being a hobby for me), but sometimes I feel like I spend *too* much time just staring.
The choice #Debian and the community has taken in having DebConf20 hosted in Haifa, Isreal, is a huge dissapointment. A community founded in their Social Contract and one that claims to build a 'Universal Operating System' should not be hosting a conference in an imperialistic, apareteid state. You can't be universal when the Palestinian members of the community will be excluded and you ignore the history of crimes perpetuated by Israel. I expected better from them, honestly. What a way to fly against the spirit of both Debian's Social Contract and the communalism of #FOSS #FLOSS.
Also started using neovim over vim. The reason? Neovim reads its config from ~/.config/nvim/ instead of ~/. Now that I'm testing a potential move to Void :voidlinux:, I want to have a clean slate which includes dotfiles. Debian was my first distro I got comfy in for years, so that along with me being pretty new to Linux when I started using it means I have a lot of cruft in my homedir
@Matter I get lazy and don't restart as soon as I should, but at least I don't get too many on Debian Stable!
There goes my uptime though :(. The only thing that keeps it from staying up are power outages. I'll never be able to post uptime porn at this rate
It actually wasn't my ISP being absolute rubbish like it almost always is. This time the circuit breaker switched off in the room where everything is.
It's happened before but I have no idea what causes it, there's no extra load or anything.
At least it wasn't the US government out to get me for leftist shitposts though amirite 🙈
@Matter I have a small UPS that helps against brown outs, but it has enough stuff plugged into it that it doesn't power them for very long!
Finally found the correct SQL DB that stores all of the company data (with no help from IT). Now that there's a very good chance I won't need to use Excel PivotTables to pull in data from their cubes, I'm in the middle of making a sort of master class in python that sets up the correct WHERE expression parameters as attributes to pull from the tables of my choosing. Getting closer to my goal of near full automation.
