Oh my god, this quote someone posted on Reddit, I'm not sure who said this but...

"I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are."

‘Vexations’ (1893) is a piano piece by the composer Erik Satie that is supposed to be played very slowly 840 times. The first performance, conducted by John Cage in 1963, went for more than 18 hours. At the end, one audience member shouted ‘Encore!’ (Image: Sonia y natalia) t.co/Cye0srbcOB

my favorite thing about industrial USB-C is that there's at least two standards for USB-C, and this one manages to take USB-C and give it an orientation, because now you have to make sure you plug it in rightside-up or you can't connect the screw terminal

I worked a bit more on this, and got proper PTT functionality working! The script can kinda setup itself if you have pulseaudio and xbindkeys installed. You'll only need to add `xbindkeys` itself to xprofile, xinitrc, or your DE's startup.

I'm now at the point where, if I see a link to an article on Medium, I go 'mmm, yeah, maybe not'. Even if the summary makes it look like an otherwise interesting article.

It's because of Medium's aggressive paywalling; I'm now locked out from reading Medium articles. Also, I now realise that the point of using Medium is just to make money, so it's a clickbait flag.

Just in case anyone is thinking that using Medium makes your article more likely to be read. For me, it does the exact opposite.

Nine in ten people report “phantom phone syndrome” - feeling your smartphone vibrate in your pocket when it isn’t.
