    Disasterpeace did a stellar job with the Huper Light Drifter OST. Wow.

      @morrick I always have my laptop on me, so anywhere I could use a tablet I may as well just use the laptop. But I figure my usage style is very different to yours! @simon_w

        @morrick @simon_w I still hate big phones, but that dislike is offset by my newfound appreciation of big screens. :)

          @morrick @simon_w They are undoubtedly more comfortable to hold. But they are far less comfortable to use (it’s really hard to articulate why, since those two things seem mutually exclusive!) You really need to own one. I hated big phones too.

            @simon_w I found that I still hate how big my 6S+ is (and I’d been using the 6 for a whole year before that.) However, I now hate small phones too, for being so damn small. It’s great to use and yet horrible to hold. I won’t go back.

              SO much spam on SoundCloud now, seriously.

                Still, I kinda like it. I might make something of it yet.

                  Turns out it’s really, really hard to make something listenable in ten minutes. You basically have to ignore all the little details you’d spend hours obsessing over and take very broad strokes, trying to fill as much of the canvas as possible.

                    @tomcat Cheaper than an $1800 fine for not filling in the sensitive information they want!

                      @tomcat It’d cost me about 600 bucks or so to spend the day in NZ, flying out on the 8th, and returning on the morning of the 10th. Seems like a waste of an overseas trip, haha. But I’m actually half considering it.

                        @remino I shudder to think how much electricity we’ve wasted collectively in CI systems, downloading the same stuff, compiling the same dependencies, over and over and over again.

                          @simon_w Nice! Is it the rose gold one? Or is that just my f.lux?
                          cgiffard
                            @tomcat Yeah. Not a big fan.
                            cgiffard
                              @tomcat Good luck! I’m sure you did great. :)

                                @simon_w Focus you can’t. 1Blocker you appear to be able to. I don’t think I’ve ever needed to disable blocking for a site though.

                                  @simon_w Hrm, I’m not sure. I’ll check.

                                    @simon_w I’m using a combination of 1blocker and Focus (by Mozilla.) Seems to work pretty well. I can block web fonts which is really nice.

                                      @blumenkraft Hah. It's coming back! I'm actually buying way more vinyl than digital these days, since I can actually feel like I'm collecting something. And the experience of ownership is wonderful.
