Hey, saw some data today defined as csv with þ as the field separator.

I guess you could say...

that every row has its thorns.

"economic loss," rather than save this language, they should have hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE and shut down.

I'm going to do it. I'm going to switch from y'all to ye mighty where and when I can.

Hot take: Cyberpunk only seems 'prophetic' because not enough has changed since the 80s to make it seem irrelevant, and this basically means that cyberpunk failed in its critical project by spawning insufficient praxis

Like, objectively, this is better, I am better than I have been previously, but there's a real fine line between "overwhelmed and slowly failing" and "overwhelmed and maybe slowly crawling out of it" and I don't know that its viscerally detectable.

I really wish there were more resources (or more that I could find) on dealing with the thing where you're recovered enough from major depression/burnout/other oppressive states that depress emotional response that you can feel again, but are still not solid enough to actually deal with those feelings.

Also how long can that state EVEN last, asking for a friend who is me for the last year?

Work and news have not yet annihilated my warm fuzzy feeling from this morning but they are carrying out a doughty siege, without reinforcements the gates shall surely fall ere nightfall.

Just caught up on the news and I'm pretty dang glad therapy is today I guess.
