gmail Show more
the other day i wrote some more stuff about migrating off of gmail:
a few more days into this, it seems like:
a) actually using a desktop client and writing mail to people like i used to do: is really not so bad.
b) i'm going to be unsubscribing from spamlists and changing logins for months and months.
bad news everyone: your purely functional and capability-safe program is running on top of a side effect'y stateful world
the correct way to solve this problem is to generate new single use self-contained purely functional universes and do message passing between them, and corrupt the fabric of time between the message passing substrate in such a way that timing and other such side channel attacks are not possible
Generation theory as practiced in news media is about as meaningful as astrology
What would be cool is if we didn’t have a referendum on the merits and faults of any given age group each time a newsmaker rises up

talking too much and without any real purpose is probably a recognizable correlate of decades of substance abuse, huh.
i added an extra "k" there because my life is a shambles, i'm extremely tequila-drunk, and this fucking $1700 laptop is lagging because i'm playing a youtube video in the other window.
computers are shit and technology was a mistake. burn it down. (again: drunk.)
the experience of using a $1700k laptop in 2018 is depressingly more like the experience of really abusing the limits of a $2000 desktop from 1995 in the early 2000s than i want it to be.
