I'm kind of annoyed that "self-care" has become conflated with "treat yourself". Yes, sometimes treating yourself can be an act of self care

But most of prioritizing self care is meeting your core needs. It's telling yourself it's ok to take time to eat a healthy meal or take a shower. It's making sure you put the things you need to be healthy at a higher priority

The whole "self care is luxuries" captialist takeover of an important mental health concept just chaps me

Friend: What’s your new address? I can come pick you up
Me: Thx, but I don’t want my address to end up on #facebook
Friend: What? I’m not giving it to FB. WTH?!
Me: Hum, you’ll probably add it to my contact on your phone. You gave Messenger and Whatsapp access to your contacts. So yeah if I give you my address there’s a good chance it’ll end up in a FB’s database.

Why is it so hard to protect one’s data these days? Is there a way for me to have ppl over without leaking my address?

If you see one of these in your home, leave it alone. It's a house centipede. They're harmless to you, but an absolute menace to the bugs most people don't want. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutiger

I know most people here are not into JS libraries and frameworks but we're starting to see super cool projects for progressive enhancement. Things like Alpine (alpinejs.dev) or HTMX (htmx.org) treat HTML as a first class citizen and source of truth, it's refreshing an unobtrusive.

It's not clear to me whether running a company like Remington makes you into a fucking monster, or whether depraved assholes seek out companies like Remington to work for.
