food mostly healthy snack
Just from a box mix but theyre ridiculously not bad on carbs or calories. Somehow never used a donut pan before either. They are good warm, Im a hair worried they'll be a touch plain cool. May have to reheat them in the air fryer or chase them with some zero calorie pancake syrup later.
ethical software licensing movement
The "freedom phone" using microg, lineageOS and the Aurora Store feels like a strong argument, that developers might deserve to have some say so on how their software is used and redistributed outside the usual proprietary/libre dynamic.
It's an argument from emotion mind you.
But I get that impulse; and id be hard pressed not to think about an ethical license if I was working in the android space right now.
I've been interpreting a lot of our worst political realities lately through the lens of a national crisis of empathy.
Nothing is a better yard stick for measuring our national lack of empathy than the federal eviction moratorium expiring; as the delta variant causes yet another surge nationwide.
'Irreconcilable Differences' by me
My thoughts on the Mastodon iOS app and the frustrations within with a side of our long standing problems with Gargron.
fam slightly humorous
While visiting my Virginia fam every time someone said or did something baffling I typed it into my phone. I'm not going to share most of them, but I am going to share this one:
* Phyllis suddenly announces that there is a fungus infecting the people or DC in mass. It was a complete non sequitur. Its not clear why she brought this up or where she wanted to go with this topic. No one wants to probe it either to see what strange corner of foxnews she is regurgitating badly.
I suspect it might be somewhat impossible to not think about the "Take Me Home, Country Roads" song while rolling around the mountains and rocky hills of either Virginia (vanilla, or West). Mom and I definitely inevitability think about it on the drive. Subjected her to the version from "Whisper of the Heart".
