@art Totally. Tracking my food (and, to a lesser degree, exercise) is the only thing that works for me. When I track, I realize that I often reach for food when I'm bored rather than when I'm actually hungry.
Of course, it takes a lot of mental energy, so it starts to wear on me after a time. :(

@allan It's crap like this that makes me really surprised that the poster someone (you?) shared some time back, from a pride event, showed a list of the various pride flags and actually included the "straight pride" flag as a valid symbol. It's a completely unnecessary symbol that I honestly can't imagine ever being used in a way that isn't at least a little bit homophobic.
I'm sure this makes me incredibly bland and "basic," but I love the lofi hip hop vibe. It's perfect for just chilling with a morning coffee, but it also works really well for getting shit done at work...I can just block everyone out and listen to some chill beats while I write.

Black Banner Magic is an excellent podcast for anyone wanting to know more about the wonderful witchy weirdos who occupy parts of the left. It's certainly helping me understand what drives people to practice magic and why that doesn't necessarily mean they're anti-science/anti-materialist (some (most?) of them don't really even believe in "magic" as those of us not involved might think of it). It's super interesting, IMO.
I was just reminded of the fact that Apache Open Office (AOO) still exists and that Apache refuses to kill it, such that LibreOffice could take its place (and downloads! Many people still don't know about #LibreOffice and still download AOO, which hasn't seen a non-bugfix release in > 4 years).
Then I was reminded of this blogpost by the Apache foundation president, about how AOO just got "a shot of adrenaline" and was about to rise to new heights:
Don't eat the rich. Humans contain a lot of toxins that are harmful to humans, and eating them doubles up on that. Also they contain (obviously enough) human vector diseases that you can catch in a way eating another species you wouldn't necessarily; Compost the rich and use them to grow other crops instead.

I don't know what an albin.social is and I really don't fucking care. If they're federating ads, forcing people who aren't part of their instance to see them, that sucks. But other than that, I don't give two shits. They'll fold in a few weeks when they realize people don't want a monetized fediverse.
