Of all the inventions in the last hundred years, the dry erase board is probably the most remarkable.

Starbucks is big enough they could probably switch over to completely reusable coffee cups and cause the industry to follow. Bring a reusable cup and get your coffee like normal. Forgot yours? You can buy one at or slightly above cost along with your coffee.

@b_cavello Also it's helpful to consciously take breaks. I like to occasionally get up and take a minute to re-fill my water glass and tidy up literally a couple of things. Whatever gets your eyeballs off the screen for a 5 minutes.

However, I think that in our case such a scenario is highly unlikely. First of all, the order of events is reversed--ActivityPub and Mastodon have been built after Twitter, as improvements over Twitter, and the current, not insignificant userbase has specifically left Twitter over bad features, management, or misaligned incentives, so there is essentially no risk of losing that userbase back to Twitter even if it joined the space.

My homage to D.C. Fontana, an important name in the Star Trek saga since the beginning, who passed away last Monday.

So ya, got my diagnosis yesterday, picked up the pills last night, took it this morning.

I'm really trying not to draw conclusions until I'm doing this a few weeks, but holy hell I'm on today. Normally I would just say it's a lucky today and that I'm kind of wired. But this is going beyond any normal stress of on focus I had in a long while. We'll see what happens next.

Next step in a long journey.

So my NP says the diagnosis checks out. I've got my prescription, we'll see what tomorrow brings, I'm trying really hard not to get my expectations up for a dramatic change too much. But it's hard to avoid.

Why do people insist that Toronto is pronounced as though it ends in any discernible vowel that is distinguishable from a schwa?

There are no vowels, just syllables that rely on rent control to exist.
