Anyway,

I didn't know the FoF like that, or at all really, and I haven't really talked to the friend in a while, and it's pretty likely that the FoF is young and naive and believes that they are being helpful, so it doesn't do me any good to jump in guns blazing.

I'm just going to convince them that I'm mean and contrarian.

I don't have the kind of relationship with either of them that would result in my comments having the desired effect.

I just had an exchange on bookface, and decided to just dip instead of participating in it, but I'm still seething over it, so we're going to discuss it here.

Post from friend: It's impossible to live while working 40 hours unless you have someone doing labor for you. It's a relic from an era with housewives as the norm.

Comment from friend of friend: It's really just a matter of scheduling. [two dense paragraphs about how to schedule your day if you work exactly 8 hours and have no commute.]

I have the GNU Imp on my work machine, and I hate that all the icons are monochrome.

What do I have to do to get some color channel information in to my tool icons???

Someone wanna explain what a blaseball is to me?

@ajroach42 They were in that weird early 2000s window of "handheld devices are fairly affordable but smart phones and ubiquitous WiFi aren't a thing yet" gadgets.

I only got to fool around with one for a day or two and assumed they were kind of a dud, but I guess they were actually pretty successful for a couple of years before cell phones got cheap.

Dunno if there's a hacker aftermarket for them.
