By habit I still use tor for all medical searches. Once you know the insurance companies buy that data, even no longer living in their reach, well... There's always the future to think about.

This is a great search experience. I queue a search and walk away. A few hours later I queue four page loads that look viable, and wander off. The next day I read those pages and queue another search if needed.

By not moving at the speed of visceral response, I take in the information differently and make different choices in selection and use of it.

Don't give up on self care just because something didn't work for you. Keep trying new ways of being kind to yourself!

thispersondoesnotexist.com/ uses StyleGAN to procedurally generate human faces from source photographs. It generates a new face every time you reload the page.

It's a little unsettling to look at relatively high-res photographs of people who never existed. :ghost_gif:

One of the most successful and enduring feats of interplanetary exploration, our Mars Opportunity rover mission is at an end after almost 15 years exploring the surface of Mars. Designed to last just 90 Martian days, here's a look at this record-setting mission: go.nasa.gov/2SUQv93

stage 3 disillusionment: what we're doing is actively harmful. we're destroying privacy, personal relationships, and possibly democracy itself in the name of automating away people's jobs so a billionaire can have a bigger yacht.

where I'm at now: Today I will fix the next bug on my JIRA queue, an activity which is futile, but not more futile than all other human endeavor

(2/2)

Opportunity rover on Mars has sent it's last image. Sometime afterward it sent a final message:

"It is dark and my battery is low."

After the planetwide sandstorm of 2018, Opportunity was covered in dust and the windy season didn't clear it off. Now it is winter and Opportunity, unable to move to keep warm, will freeze.

Sora: "Hunh, that's funny. We're coming up on a World, but the map says there shouldn't be anything here..."
Goofy: "Well that there ain't no world, fellers."
Donald: "Waak!! It's the Death Star!!!"

I'm just saying, the Death Star should be like Monstro, navigating the void between the worlds.

I am DONE with technology.

I'm going to become Amish.

Amish is when you only use OpenBSD base, right?
