I don't have a single scripting language I know that I like
what scripting language should I learn that is better than python (has to run nice on windows)

Just got knocked out in the first round of a pool tournament
I feel like thinking I was ever OK at pool was a joke
Although tbh it was in a random bracket against somebody I suspect was a university-level player and I’m like, an advanced newbie

like, don't get me wrong, smartphones as they exist now are A Problem for a lot of people, and A Problem for the environment. There are many changes that need to be made to smartphones to make them actually good

but as a user, having a pocket-sized internet computer? very very convenient and useful especially in a world that assumes you have one.
That last part might be the main part tbh. In a world where smartphones aren't assumed, I think I'd be happier without one

having a smartphone is actually really useful and I don't hate it
I am surprised how much I don't dislike my iphone

I'd rather it be completely free but I'd have to pay my app store fees somehow

looking for an alarm clock app which has some additional requirements to turn off the alarm (going somewhere else, doing a puzzle etc) to try and get over my snoozing issue, and they're ALL either tracking stuff or have bullshit subscription models, or both

I feel like there is a market for no-BS iOS apps. Just a couple bucks upfront and that's it. No ads, no tracking, no subscriptions, just a fucking alarm clock.

got a lecture at 9am tomorrow on the second campus that's a not insignificant walk away...not sure I'm happy about this

First induction lecture at uni today and already succeeded at getting a blahaj on a lecturer's slide

tiddlywiki is starting to feel....weirdly arcane?
it's got so much flexibility but also doing some stuff I want to do is overcomplicated because of how it thinks of things
I want to try joplin or standard notes or smth. They use electron but that's no worse than tiddlywiki's browser-based approach

I lost my laptop on a bus. Honest dumb mistake. But it had all my stuff on it, some of which I don’t have backups of because it’s so new, and some of which is sensitive. Really starting to see the appeal of the remote-lock-your-device-from-the-cloud thing. Because yes I was too stupid to set up full disk encryption.

feel like adding a beer tasting log to my site
because I like sharing my beer opinions but I never have enough to fill a whole post and I don't think masto wants that

just installed powertoys and wow this should just have been in windows from the start
