Like a small blog. Short rants of around 240 characters.... Updated:
I read Marie Kando's "The Life Changing Magic of Tyding Up" where she goes in depth and explains her "Kon Mari" system. I enjoyed the book. I don't buy in to the whole minimalize style, but I like how it gets you to think about what you own, and why you have it. I don't do the "spark joy" thing she does, but instead ask myself "have I used this in 2 years?". If the Answer is No, then I need to get rid of it. That drawer of cables, gone. That interesting stack of fun paper you got back in 2017, gone. Like Kregier says "Who cares, they're in the garbage".
I bought way too much stuff in the past 10 years. I spent COVID time getting rid of it. I still have more to get rid of. My un-finished projects, which remain un-finished after all these years, are gone. That weird useless collection of "interesting things" that I look at only when new things get added to the collection, also gone (well Sold).
I'm not minimalist, but I am tired of keeping all this crap around the house that I do not need.
So yes, I recomend her book, but only becuase it gets you thinking "do I really need all of this shit?"
I've completely given up on Google Search.
SEGA knows people can just download the roms for Sonic 1-3,
Sonic and Knuckles, and Sonic CD right? No one really needs to play a
remaster (with DLC! wtf.) of 25ish year old game series. Go play Sonic Mania
Drones being used in Ukraine are much simpler than many
people thought. Honestly, I thought this was the point
of drones? Make a cheap, almost commodity piece of military
kit that is tasked to do 1 or 2 jobs. Easiliy repairable and
replaceable. Looks like the Russians are doing just that. This
does look like a quick hack though. I'm not sure how reliable
these drones will be after a few months worth of constant
flying. Those consumer cameras are meant to be used on the
ground, in normal temps, not exposed to the elements (the used
duct tape to seal the frame). It looks like it should do the
job it's meant to do.
I feel I should mention, fuck Putin and his cronies.
