Going to check if my squad guide is posted so I can delete it from my home directory

Monday, 2023-11-27 at 13:11:10 Texas Time

Reading my old tweets. Don't even agree with some of it anymore, even a year later.

Monday, 2023-11-27 at 13:10:19 Texas Time

Still haven't deleted the thing that makes a backup of the entire tweets page every time I tweet, even though I fixed the glitch that caused all my tweets to get deleted. Lol. One day.

Linked Ctrl-C club to the top of my flounder page. Next step is to mirror my flounder to my gemini page on ctrl-c club. Flounder will be the source.

Sunday, 2023-11-05 at 15:37:27 Texas Time

Nice. Moved the protractor to ascii art instead of cheetsheets. It's really an art piece and not a cheet sheet lol.

Sunday, 2023-11-05 at 14:51:33 Texas Time

I need to clean up some of the abandoned pages on this capsule.

The two biggest concerns with AI are centralized control and the injection of morality into the system

Friday, 2023-11-03 at 15:54:47 Texas Time

The freedom that I experience in managing my and presence is unlike any other webmastering experience

Saturday, 2023-10-07 at 10:13:08 Texas Time

The main problem of my flounder right now is that it was build out with so many categories, as if I would make all that content. Lol. At this time I'm probably going to work on some new better utilities to help me make more content -quickly- . That's the idea.

Apologies. My flounder is under construction. You may encounter some stank

Saturday, 2023-10-07 at 09:47:09 Texas Time

I really need to organize all this flounder stuff lol. I forget what I've even done on my own flounder - I write code then forget I even wrote code. LOL time to fix?

Not getting rid of the concept of "Messages" just yet. I deleted all the old messages to get a clean slate. To an extent, I suppose "messages" could be "fleeting" a la Alex fleeting.gmi. So that's a good reason for messages not to get archived. Idk. Just going to get a clean start on messages. Maybe do that instead of links.gmi -> links.gmi wasn't working very well.

Sunday, 2023-08-13 at 14:38:30 Texas Time

Removing the "links" page from my flounder. I just wasn't keeping up with it. I need to consolidate what I am doing on flounder so I can be more consistent in making content. I don't want to not make content, but I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. Also, I didn't really have an efficient workflow for editing my pages

Sunday, 2023-06-18 at 14:29:53 Texas Time

I haven't been working on flounder lately. I have been working on a personal website to track my calories and activities. I think i am going to build some tools into that website that will make ot easier for me to share content onto flounder.

Friday, 2023-04-21 at 02:43:41 Texas Time

I really need to clean up this gemini site and go back to the drawing board.

Friday, 2023-04-21 at 02:42:16 Texas Time

Completely agree with Alex on self-hosting and complexity being a problem.

Monday, 2023-01-09 at 12:29:42 Texas Time

My workout tracking program is not very good lol. Oh well.

Monday, 2023-01-09 at 12:26:49 Texas Time

Completely disagree with Nicholas Johnson's latest post. My main question is: who should have children, and who should not? Someone must have children for humanity to continue, how do we make a moral decision as to who deserves that privilege?

Friday, 2022-11-25 at 01:24:15 Texas Time

About to write a program to track exactly how much I work out, also going to expand some of my flounder utilities soon so I can do more stuff easier on my flounder site. Hopefully it's fun.

Saturday, 2022-11-05 at 21:06:22 Texas Time

Holy smokes, I haven't tweeted in a month and a half.. I need to get back on Flounder...

Friday, 2022-09-16 at 11:51:59 Texas Time

If a stock drops 5% today but gains 5% tomorrow you still lose money :0. Likewise if a stock gains 5% today and loses 5% tomorrow you still lose money. So it is probably better to look at stocks in terms of total changes and never think of percentages because that is misleading, its the "like button" of the investing world

Tuesday, 2022-09-13 at 23:51:44 Texas Time

Had fun with Alex's stream today - kind of interesting to participate in a Twitch thing, appreciating it as a sort of chatroom like the old days, except it's a new thing. Still weird. But I see the value in it, especially for smaller channels. Inspired to stream now

Tuesday, 2022-09-13 at 02:12:30 Texas Time

Thinking about adding a dream journal and memoirs to this capsule. Then also sort of reflecting on how I can improve my content creation productivity using a few tools doctors hate... hmm

Tuesday, 2022-09-13 at 02:08:13 Texas Time

Remembering things that happened 15 years ago and being disturbed by the fact that I almost forgot them. Even more disturbed by the fact that I HAVE forgotten things.

Sunday, 2022-09-11 at 11:33:15 Texas Time

Just had a bizarre dream while being sick, which is challenging my perception of the world. I went to a drink fountain and got a small amount of "Monday" soda. Only a small amount, bexause I wanted to taste it. But I didn't get a whole cup because it doesnt come in diet. There was also a Wednesday soda, which is a different brand entirely. But there was no Tuesday soda or any other day. That would be absurd! So anyway when I woke up I had to come to grips with the reality that Monday and Wednesday sodas don't exist. And that has been very troublesome to me. All of the soda brands seem fake to me now. I mean... CocaCola "Dreamworld" is REAL? but Monday Cola isn't? How? Why?

There are two ways people react to acts of violence. Either to attempt to disarm others, or to attempt to arm themselves. In either case, the motivation is the same, but the difference is in perspective comes from their understanding of the possibility of disarming others without themselves being armed.

Monday, 2022-09-05 at 00:12:48 Texas Time

There's very little that limits what someone can accomplish when they stop complaining

The one thing retarding a post-human future is the need of the machine for the host humans' suture

Windows 11 is a downgrade from Windows 10. Best to use every other version of Windows. Can't wait for Windows 12!

Saturday, 2022-08-27 at 23:59:33 Texas Time

Every time I boot into Windows for the first time in 3 months to play a video game at 11pm, I end up waiting an hour for the game to update, by which time it is too late and I go to bed. I guess, I'll repeat this neverending cycle in 3 months...

Friday, 2022-08-26 at 20:07:50 Texas Time

Microsoft continues to amaze me - the only reason they have market share is because of business users and gamers, yet all of their OS design decisions seem to be centered around appealing to the "casual user" and making their system more "mobile / touch screen friendly" ... There is no chance of Windows appealing to the casual user and these decisions make the OS less favorable to the core userbase. Right click - New text file ... "Nobody uses *that* anymore", says Microsoft

Friday, 2022-08-26 at 19:21:22 Texas Time

Spotify is probably going to go the way of Netflix eventually. I should start listing all the songs I like somewhere so when they start disappearing off of Spotify I will not forget about them for years.

Friday, 2022-08-26 at 18:22:16 Texas Time

The notion that "Everything" can be found on the internet is based on a narrow definition of the word "Everything"

Hello World! I am tweeting about stuff

Monday, 2022-08-22 at 03:43:50 Texas Time

I think I'm going to tidy up my flounder utilities and put them in a neat package

Saturday, 2022-08-20 at 23:31:54 Texas Time

Sorry for the sparseness of cheat sheets.

Saturday, 2022-08-20 at 21:21:04 Texas Time

Decided to try learning some R after watching a video on it and going "Oooh - looks useful"

Saturday, 2022-08-20 at 21:16:51 Texas Time

Really enjoy tmux way better than i3wm.... i3 is OK but I'm just not used to it... Tmux is just so much more comfortable

Saturday, 2022-08-20 at 21:16:33 Texas Time

Realizing my cheetsheets page needs to be better organized, LOL

Saturday, 2022-08-20 at 21:14:33 Texas Time

Finally got my finances in order so I spent some extra cash and took a trip to NYC. Dumped my personal finance book on the ground -- didn't need it any more!

Friday, 2022-08-19 at 22:40:20 Texas Time

I've always been enamored with programming, as long as I can remember I have always been into computers -- I'm crazy grateful about this when I see other people struggle to find their calling in life.

Thursday, 2022-08-18 at 21:31:28 Texas Time

I like to think of the world in glorious terms - why should we not speak of glory and prestige? Why is it cringe? I refer to myself as a king, my domain as my kingdom, and I speak of the glory of all mankind. Why be depressed when you can be glorious?

It doesn't have to be real. I am the King of Sophenheim. The king of the home of wisdom. Why constantly compare yourself to others, why live within the confines of reality? Why waste your time proving what you intuitively know brings greatness to your life and your own experience?

Wednesday, 2022-08-17 at 20:45:47 Texas Time

If you read the news you might think that the world is getting crazy and unstablthese days. If you read history, you wknow that it is not much different now than ever before.

Wednesday, 2022-08-17 at 18:24:56 Texas Time

Signed up for -- interested to see how it goes

Wednesday, 2022-08-17 at 18:22:59 Texas Time

I agree about freedom to roam. The whole thing about owning property for no reason and a fence around every acre of land in the USA is kind of... Silly. Sort of like gun control.

Wednesday, 2022-08-17 at 10:06:48

I tend to agree with gitnick on crypto

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 22:49:23

MicroUSB may be one of the worst cables in the history of cables, maybe ever

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 22:35:41

Thinking of makimg available my code for the tweeter and message maker but I know its not polished code and anticipate getting roasted

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 21:22:55

Probably about to go against my own words of squidsdom and buy a nice cell phone, mainly for work reasons.

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 20:42:05

Just identified a pattern of nonproductivity. Sometimes, when people are attempting to solve the problem at hand, they can become so concerned about the *next* potential problem (or a new problem caused by the solution to the problem at hamd) that they either fall into a purity spiral trying to solve every anticipated problem, or they convince themselves that due to the anticipated problems the problem at hand can not or should not be solved. In any case, the resuly is a failure to solve the problem at hand.

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 18:57:11

Thinking about writing some more trucking related content.

Tuesday, 2022-08-16 at 18:54:22

Feeling very nostalic about the idea of computers from my childhood until now, a magical force that has dominated my perception of the world for my entire life.

Sunday, 2022-08-14 at 22:23:52

Always keeping tabs on Alex's fleetings ... >.> gotta peep them before he deletes them from before my very eyes

Sunday, 2022-08-14 at 22:20:44

Maybe the best thing about making music is the feeling that you aren't making it, but just experiencing it. It's like the music was already there, and you are doing an imperfect job of turning into a form that humans perceive. God created the music and now you are discovering a fraction of it and it takes all of your focus to do that much

Friday, 2022-08-12 at 22:50:43

Trying to be as wholesome as possible in life...

Friday, 2022-08-12 at 22:48:14

I may be getting a significant promotion soon... This is an exciting but scary time for me. Next month may kill me. But if I survive and I usually do, then it will be hella sick

Friday, 2022-08-12 at 21:20:37

Things worth spending good money on: food, clothes, tools, equipment, land, buildings, firearms, and sterling silver, gemstones, and gifts. Things NOT worth spending good money on: vehicles, rental property, gasoline, most proprietary software, furniture, and netflix

Thursday, 2022-08-11 at 19:29:57

Wondering if everyone else on flounder lives in the same apartment complex LOL :P

Wednesday, 2022-08-10 at 21:48:44

Is 'the cloud' just a buzz word? It might be much worse than that; more like a bait-and-switch than just a simple buzz word for "someone else's computer"... Not just someone else's computer, but in the case of SaaS, someone else's software on someone else's computer. First you depend on the software, then you have no control over it, and then you are dependent, and completely at the vendor's mercy... This may be the biggest lie in the history of lies, maybe ever. Its like the ultimate form of proprietary software. The only thing that could be worse is the brain chip with proprietary firmware

Wednesday, 2022-08-10 at 21:42:50

So I was being sarcastic about sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade being complicated cuz in reality its not that bad but then I had to install brave browser for the zillionth time and I am now finally considering moving out of ubuntopolis

Wednesday, 2022-08-10 at 21:41:42

Ads on the internet these days are beyond insanity. Speaking of which, this tweet is sponsored by Da Bomb: Beyond Insanity hot sauce. Get some on dabomb dot com

Wednesday, 2022-08-10 at 21:37:43

Its always inspiring to see your fellow flounderers improving their vibes and mindsets, and focus on enjoying their lives and deleting social media accounts

Top 3 reasons Ubuntu stinks:

1. Too easy; can't brag

2. Get roasted for using it

3. "sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" is too complicated

Friday, 2022-08-05 at 05:20:51

I think I figured out why my tweeter was broken. Apparently the way I wrote my code, if I typed "N" when asked to confirm a tweet, the code just said "Uhh... OK - I guess we don't need this file anymore"

Sunday, 2022-07-31 at 23:24:29

So, my tweet script is messing things up and occasionally deleting my entire tweets.gmi page.. So I lost some tweets. I put in there to create a time stamped backup just before it creates every tweet I make... That way I wont lose any more tweets before I finally figure out what I did wrong.

Sunday, 2022-07-24 at 00:39:22

There's something incredibly beautiful about central Texas at dusk in the summertime :) so super duper bueno. The warmth is nice and cool - at 90 degrees it is a nice, cool relief from the hot summer day. And it's so quiet, and so cozy. I don't think this sentiment is shared with many people outside of Texas, but I don't see me ever loving another place more. This is the biome I belong in.
