productivity idealism sometimes encourages us to make foolish choices.
There's a thing that I can automate with code. it's not urgent. And it's not my responsibility to ensure it's done.
But I want to make *progress* that is **visible** so I do it manually. I know that I want to automate it. But if I have 15 minutes I can get it done manually, or I can make 15 minutes of progress on automation.
I'm trying to encourage myself to spend the 15 minutes making invisible progress.
operating system tier list
A diagram of an operating system tier list is presented. On the great tier, there is Linux, and on the good tier there is Windows. On the alright tier, there is macOS and Android. A little below them, on the a-little-stinky tier, there is iOS. Finally on the last tier, the dum-dum-bubblegum tier, lies chromeOS. Thanks Google.

Hey folks, I know you love your proxy sites for Twitter, YouTube etc - but if you're sharing a link could you please use the authoritative source so I know what the hell I'm going to be clicking on and make my own informed decisions?
Also 90% of these third party sites are by default dark-themed accessibility nightmares and I can't read half the stuff on them anyway.
oh rainy day! ☔🌧️
