Also, friends, is anyone here using a fairphone?
I'd love to hear from someone with hands-on experience!
Fixed a memory leak in my emacs setup this weekend and omfg, I can't remember anything being this satisfying in half a year at least.
I lived with it for a couple of weeks and it used to eat up to 5Gb of memory per day.
And now, with uptime of two days, it's still sub 200Mb and that's truly beautiful.

LMFAO, love those people

I've been living in a pretty small town for a while now and coming to a relatively big city for more than a week is an interesting experience.
You suddenly realise that air quality is a thing™️, noise pollution is sooo irritating (how can you talk to people in the streets?) and there are way more weird people willing to interact with you.
Of course, cities are different yada yada, but I've lived in this one for >10 years and never noticed this before.
I used to forget to eat regularly 2-3 years ago, but somehow it stopped happening lately.
This morning, I'm in a slight hurry, finish my tea, stand up and everything goes dark before my eyes for a literal half a minute.
Panic a bit and then realise that I haven't eaten in more than 24 hours.
Makes me think whether I should start setting up reminders from now on.
Tired: I can't even hold stuff, juggling is not for me
Wired: juggling is precisely dropping, catching, and dropping again before the other things fall down
Another thing I wanted to learn more about from semi-theoretical pov is juggling notation.
But given that I can't even hold a relatively small number of things without them falling down almost immediately will probably get in a way.
Just to clarify — the answer isn't negative.
Also, should I call myself lucky because they cared enough to copy paste my name?
I guess that's enough for today.
I was able to get to a major conference in the summer because of the volunteering program, but this was just ~20 volunteers out of ~600 attendants. And half of those were phd students who had funding for the conference anyway.
And no, there's no funding for anything for anybody.
I'm not really sure what's the point of this, but it feels really frustrating when you don't have access to people in your area off the bet and when you finally make an attempt to establish connections it ends up depending on whether you can pay entrance fee.
