Bought a set of Comply foam tips to replace the silicon ones on my AirPods Pro. They would often slip out of my ears and I’d constantly be pressing them back in, didn’t matter which size I put on.

In only 10 minutes of using these Comply foam tips they feel so much more comfortable. They don’t feel like they are slipping out of my ear even when my jaw moves while talking.

So far, 300% satisfied with the $30 purchase.

Some of my thoughts on the recent debacle around Matt Mullenweg (#WordPress creator) and the #Jamstack

So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use smellmyf.art as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)

But that got me to thinking, "I wonder if eatmysh.it is available?"

Unfortunately it isn't, but the website that hosts it is AMAZING!

USPOL, RBG, Your Cynicism 

You cannot expect to do good without acting inside the system to triage, and working without the system to force change.

Both of these things matter.

Exercising your right to vote doesn't mean you are supporting the system, it means you are manipulating as best you can from within.

Do it.

Exercising your right to protest, and force change by holding politico's feet to the fire? Just as important.

At this point if you are of the belief that not voting is a good idea, you are either a manipulated fool, or a mouthpiece trying to disenfranchise others.

Get over your ego, and go do both.

I'm not asking you to even like it. But know how you are leveraged, and maximize your free will.

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a #frontend #developer. #Contracts or #fulltime. Preferably #UK where I have previous #remote work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯

#Boost please?

“Even under the worst torture and cruelties that humans can inflict on one another, our power over our own mind and our power to make our own decisions can’t be broken—only relinquished.”

Planned obsolescence can undermine privacy - and our pocketbook. For example, Apple computers, that get phased out of new software updates, may force us to make unnecessary choices.

This could force us to purchase new computers (when they are still viable) and to use hardware and software that may be outside our needs.

Try to install Linux before you opt for a new device. POP_OS performs wonderfully on outdated iMacs. Many distros can take a slow Windows PC and give it new life.

"The entitlement of these fuckers is just off the charts. They have zero right, none, to the tracking they’ve been getting away with. We, as a society, have implicitly accepted it because we never really noticed it."

US NSA surveillance 

A federal appeals court has ruled the NSA phone metadata program was illegal & maybe unconstitutional to boot. Ed Snowden was right after all folks. politi.co/2Z0l3bg

So my starter was not ready this weekend. It was still bubbling but not doubling in size or rising and falling consistently. My next target is this weekend.

I’m adding slightly more water than flour (115g water to 100g flour) and using warmer water (82°F instead of the average 74-76°F I’ve been adding). Trying to find warmer spots to store it in the house as well but I might need to buy a proofing box at some point.

Day 7 of my starter. Still hasn’t risen a lot but it is bubbling. Going to try storing it in a cabinet and using slightly warmer water during its feeding.

I genuinely believe that there is a great opportunity to learn and have lots of fun building your personal website.

I found a lot of support in the #IndieWeb community so I wrote a case for it for Smashing Magazine.

Day 6 of my starter. It hasn’t been rising and falling much but it’s still active. I’m going to try keeping a bit more of the mature starter before feeding it. Regardless of the outcome, I’m going to try to make bread this weekend.

I just miss people writing a blog about various stuff. Politics, sports, daily matters, etc.
