The best, bad, sequel titles: * Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo * 2 Fast 2 Furious * Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
I know what you're thinking. 'Matthias, it is a crime, to put what is undeniably the best sequel pun, "squeakquel" at third place.' But one of the factors that I considered heavily when rating was the ability to parody. And "The Squeakquel" only works as an Alvin and the Chipmunks title, whereas you can throw "Electric Boogaloo" after anything that ends in 2 and it is hilarious. Also I would like you know that there was a Breckinridge Jazz Hand named Wyatt Mason II and we called him 2 Wyatt 2 Mason.

We have so much fricking more we can still do with computers. We're not going to slow down for the next 30 years at least.
I'm just thinking about like IDE/code-analysis features—we could totally have a button in the IDE that simulates running the code and generates all possible outputs. Like IntelliJ will point out if you can transform a boolean condition into a simpler equivalent form (like `if not (not a and not b)` -> `if (a or b)`, if I remember DeMorgan's). Why can't we do that with the entire program? And like, you hate IDE features like type checking—but mostly because they're bad. It seems like I get false positives from TypeScript type checking 30+% of the time and an acceptable false positive rate for a static code analysis tool IMO is close to 1%. But that's something we can bring down in the next decade.

Apparently this means Firefox raced the cache and the network and it was quicker to transfer 3kb over the network than it was to read the
page from disk cache. That's iconic. This laptop has an SSD. I mean it's not a good SSD but it's an SSD. It read the other content (images+scripts) from the cache, so maybe since that took a little while, it was able to complete the download first. Still, the whole page is only 300kb. The server is in Utah. The internal SSD is literally 0% of the distance. It's quicker to roundtrip a couple packets to Utah than it is to read 300kb from the disk.

The thing about React and even something like hotwire.js is that you run the risk of making your site *seem* slower, even if you've actually
improved time to first content paint. There's a certain advantage in using the browser's native loading mechanisms in that users think 'the browser is loading.' On the other hand, if you serve a static page from a CDN, the user very quickly gets to see your, branded, loading component, while dynamic content is loaded from the site. But this can mean that the user starts to associate your site with loading, regardless of the actual loading times.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much

I can feel what Lewis means, what the Holy Spirit is leading me to—not a sort of “do whatever you feel like right now” but “do what you know you need to do right now and trust that it will work out for you.” I know that sounds easy, but my perfectionism makes it difficult. Perfectionism is useful when making decisions but after the decision has been made you just need to roll with it.

Clive really argues that two people who f and then get married because they don't want to desecrate that sacred bond, even if they don't
really like each other, have a more solid relationship than two people who get married because they've fallen in love. Remind me to edit with source/quote once I'm back near my copy of *The Screwtape Letters* Edit (Jun 16, 9:05 a.m.): For background *The Screwtape Letters* are an imagined collection of letters from one demon to another, so when it says "thanks to us" Lewis means "thanks to the work of the devil" and when it says "the Enemy" it means "the Christian God" > The Enemy described a married couple as "one flesh." He did not say "a happily married couple" or "a couple who married because they were in love," but you can make the humans ignore that. … > The truth is that whenever a man lies with a woman, there, whether they like it or not, a transcendental relationship is set up between them which must be eternally enjoyed or eternally endured. … > Humans can be made to infer the false belief that the blend of affection, fear, and desire which they call "being in love" is the only thing that makes marriage either happy or holy. This error is easy to produce because "being in love" does very often, in western Europe, precede marriages which are made in obedience to the Enemy's designs. … > humans...can be deterred from seeking marriage as a solution because they do not find themselves "in love" and thanks to us the idea of marrying for any other purpose seems low and cynical. Yes, they think that. They regard the intention of loyalty to a partnership for mutual help, for the preservation of chastity, and for the transmission of life, as something lower than a storm of emotion. -p 82-84 I think what's going on here is that Lewis is using a definition of "being in love" which today would be closer to "love at first sight." I don't think Lewis is saying that you shouldn't love your wife/husband. (Notice how he always quotes "being in love," I think to make it clear this isn't real love.) Rather, I think he's defining "being in love" as the inherently childish, transitory, "storm of emotion" which exists only at the beginning of a relationship. And he further argues that basing a relationship on *that* feeling is a recipe for disaster. At another point, he describes how a new couple might be spontaneously moved to do things for one another which would be unreasonable and unsustainable for the entirety of a marriage. But I just can't stop laughing at 'there's nothing wrong with getting married for the "preservation of chastity."'

The closer we get to God, the closer we get to each other, and the closer we get to each other, the closer we get to God.’ (One of the things that made it memorable is that it was about 5 minutes and was delivered through pointing at pieces of paper and the wheel—no talking.) Willard in *The Devine Conspiracy* argues something similar—that being a Christian means surrendering your own will and joining God’s “kingdom” (here defined as the sphere of God’s influence, where God’s will is carried out) and that teaming up with God in this way is the most effective way of aligning your will with others.

I am sick and tired of scrolling through VS Code settings trying to turn off popup ads (or "auto complete suggestions" as they call them)

Stackoverflow does the thing where you lose karma yourself for downvoting someone, and I have to ask myself, ‘is it worth it to downvote
this jQuery user?’ And the answer is yes.

It makes me feel sad because I feel like it's a reflection on my character. I don't regret my actions. Regret is not something that I frequently experience. In short, I feel resigned to it. I feel alone, both because I feel they don't want me, and because I know that my friends will be having fun without me and because I don't have another life setup, as much as I pretend that I do. I'm scared. I don't know if I can do it. "And, the trouble is, we don't know who we are instead."

“But Justo wasn’t crazy. He was just unwilling to submit to what most people considered normal.”
And “He didn’t believe in perfection. How could he? Perfection was God. Unattainable. Perfection was really only the mask of ambition, and Justo wasn’t driven by ambition.”

I just touched the bottom of my mouth for the first time in a very long time. I was surprised at how soft it is.

I have iTerm set to unlimited scrollback and I'm just running this process for days without closing it. I'm going to see at what point iTerm
gives up on storing scrollback but I'm currently at 29,000+ lines with no issues.

People assume that since Gemini doesn't have a lot of users it's free game to suggest things, and they don't understand that the protocol is
finished, people are using it, there is no intention to attract users, and there is no path to make breaking changes. And the Gemini mailing list is called rude but I guarantee you if you go on the mailing list for any other project which is done and is in maintenance mode and suggest adding features the reply is going to be "no" in about that many words.

People criticize Gemini based off of how well it fixes their problems with the web. And it's like impossible to describe to them that Gemini
was designed to fix Solderpunk's problems with Gopher. If you want to fix your problems with the web, make your own protocol. This HN user is like 'Gemini does nothing to fix the problems with embedding LaTeX on the web!' And I'm like. No. It doesn't. Did you expect it to? Sorry?
