They bounced me to the Temporary Visa Extension Center, which is nearby.

The visa extension office on the 3rd floor told me to go downstairs to notify my new address.

The clerk at the 2nd floor window told me to get the rental agreement and ID of the owner of the place where I'm staying.

The 1st floor has a printing service, but they closed just when I arrived. 😩

Ok... I'll be back in the afternoon.

I upgraded to Fedora 34 today, and the migration from pulseaudio to pipewire did not break my sound! :yay:

This article debunks some established popular believes about neurology, like that our brains are built in layers: reptile brain at the bottom, instinct and emotions in the middle, and rational human brain on top.

The author promotes a more holistic approach, where the brain cannot just be sectioned into separate regions to explain our emotions, our drives and mental states.

I keep hearing
"teens just haven't developed the part of the brain that reasons about consequences"
stated as a biological fact.

But then it occurred to me, was this determined, per normal, by studying kids who spend all their time locked in schools?

Hmm Firefox is still much slower than Chrome at executing JS, but when it comes to WASM they're pretty much equivalent... 🤔

So... as the web gradually migrates to WASM, will Firefox finally catch up with Chrome? 💡
