Just accidentially autocorrected myself into self-confidence.

pals who use signal (and I hope you all do) there’s been a security breech so it is recommended to turn on registration lock.

I just finished re-reading the long way to a small angry planet

I love this book it feels so warm and cosy. It has so much love in it.

I'm a big fan of Framework laptops, trying to tackle a problem like e-waste before it gets out of control (*coughs* Apple Fan Boys *coughs*). Reading a blog on just how much further they are going with recycled materials in the construction of laptop just makes it even more sweeter.

What I'm listening to today: "PO-33 & NTS-1 | LoFi | Synthwave jam", Stefan Torto

A lo-fi hip hop beats track with a sort of Earthbound feeling to it. The entire complicated track is produced from the PO-33 (the little calculator looking thing on the left, it's a sampler) with Korg's DIY-kit microsynth used to add reverb.

Just started learning barre chords, ow my fingers

Talked to a lady who works for the tax authority yesterday. Based on her job experience, her take on the welfare state is something like this:
"Of course there will always be freeloaders. So what?! This is about dignity. Everyone has a right to a good life and to be supported when they're struggling. If you want that, you've got to live with the freeloaders. Leave them be. That's the price you pay for a society where everyone is taken care of. It's not like they're doing any damage in the big picture - I've run those numbers more than once. You'll always get more out of it for society at large when you're incentivising good performance than when you're punishing people."
