You might like their collab with Moon Hooch.

I adore Moon Hooch, they have such a nice energy and flow to their songs. Recommended listening: NPR Tiny Desk and EWI and Milk and Waffles

Write it and tag me, or pm me. I'm always up to shoot the shit about depression.

I sincerely hope you find something to smile about, it gets easier then.

Mum's a hoarder, we've argued before over my throwing things away and she has fished them out of the trash to save them. She won't accept that she is; but her behaviour gives it away.

Threw out almost half of the rubbish on just one shelf, took two hours and has cleared up about a decade of anxiety and tension over this damned mess. And yes, this is literally just one shelf, just shy of two metres big.

She came home and was okay with it, suggested I throw away some of the circa 2005 computer / web user magazines she has 'kept because they have important information in'. Kind of shocked to be honest, we've had huge fallings out over this before.

Worried she has dementia. Found my Modofly Ultraray toy-laser-gun moleskine though!

Learn Ruby The Hard Way

Ruby Koans

I find I learn more about it by watching videos like these, or reading blog posts on it: Metaprogramming in Ruby.

There's some interesting concepts that I think can translate to other languages; a lot of Sandi Metz' ideas come from her experience with Smalltalk so that has always interested me.

Watching it now, so thanks for sharing this Devac.

I'll plug Sandi Metz's Ruby talks here, her new book about refactoring code to be better / more beautiful is quite interesting -- I think you can read some of it from her website, but there's a video in this playlist about it too.

It's a cover, but I spent months listening to Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd and think everyone should give it a listen.

Also, not answering the question really but: Does anybody else get the same frisson from this shot in Live at Pompeii? I would love to have that as some sort of looping live wallpaper on mobile.

If they are seeking your help, you must look like you belong; so do you feel like you're more confident and sure of yourself? I think you should, you keep on rocking be.

You're doing great dude, resist that temptation and keep kicking ass

So simple it's beautiful.

If you didn't want the job, would you have still posted asking us?

I think it sounds like a fantastic opportunity, perhaps see if the grant allows part time employment or deferring a few months? I can't speak to the strength of your relationship, but I would expect five months to be doable for most, and you would always be able to video chat at an AirBnB, no?

Go for it, it sounds like one hell of an experience.

I would suppose that bandwidth, material absorption and environmental noise would be the most important factors here. Doing it with WiFi is 'novel' and gives them great publicity, it's technically impressive if they're able to meet the posited scenarios for use, but it felt like they were exaggerating or being taken out of context.

But hey, even light is just waves really.
