If you are techy, you could put all your music on a server, open a port on your router to the outside, and stream to the VLC app on your phone via SFTP. I've been dying to do this so I listen to my music more but don't have home internet, just my phone hotspot.

Good point.

"Probably close to zero" -- Clinton, asked about her chances of running for president again, 2008

Nice! Never have a sweaty backpack swamp ever again.

Tell me how...

Separate sticker, maybe? "I've been touched by wealth"

Meh, I went out yesterday. But I could really go for a swim right now...

This style really tickles my fancy. Know the artist?

No individual can ever "figure out" life -- our experience is limited, our brains are biased, and the clock is ticking. The best we can do is be creative with our constraints.

Just wrapped up the third one. Fucking killer, dude.

Jacob  ·  1780 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are you reading this week?

Finished it last night. Omfg.

Hey, me too! I'm halfway through the second one.

Jacob  ·  1789 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Reddit has done it again

I'll probably keep using the site until most of the individual communities have quit camp. The awful problem is that the communities are all going to go in different directions :( I don't want to use reddit AND hubski AND voat AND Aether...

Jacob  ·  1798 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How did you learn programming?

I learned on the job for a summer research project. We used Arduinos, so I had to figure out the basics of C. I was working on Linux, so BASH and Python were very handy (and still are). I later took a class in C.
