This really is the way to do it. I subscribe to small enough/few enough subreddits that I actually see every single link posted to them (I know because I hide them all after I view them, and run out quite often). And most of them are things I'm actually interested in hearing about.

If I want to relax and just read a bunch of easily consumable content, I go to /r/all.

I had this fix an issue in windows where, when hovering over icons in the taskbar with grouped windows, the previews wouldn't show up/work as needed. Restarts wouldn't fix it. This did.

    You just have them. Adele's 25 $10.99 for MP3. $9.99 for CD with AutoRip. What the fuck markets?

I recently purchased a physical CD because of this discrepancy, turns out that the MP3 version was the "digital deluxe" version with 4 more songs. Ended up buying the album twice because of that. (I really only care about the mp3 versions tbh).

Most of these are the kind of thing that someone who's into coffee would already have much better versions of. The pillow and coffee table are kind of neat, but still, a pretty shitty list to be frank. I mean seriously, ground Dunkin' Donuts coffee?

That's definitely a part of it. It's not so much that it tastes bad, it's just so bland. I've mixed it with my cinnamon protein powder and that actually made it pretty good. I'd still eat it a lot more if I had 2.0 I'm thinking, even if it tasted the same. Having to refrigerate it after mixing really kills the reason I got it, convenience.

Been trying so hard to get into 1.5 (Okay, maybe not that hard) I liked the taste of it initially, but it quickly got to be something which I dreaded eating and mixing, about half done with the 7 bags I got back in mid-October, probably drinking it about once every week. I haven't been chilling it which I think helps a lot, but then I lose a lot of the convenience which I got it for in the first place.

How can they manage communication technology outside of firms, such as open source software? They can't stop individuals from using secure messaging services unless they outright ban the algorithms and any implementation of them. In which case would websites like github, hosting the software need to be banned?

I've tried shutting off just non-free/nontrivial javascript with the GNU libreJS add on, and almost none of the sites I use work. I can't imagine shutting it off completely.

Getting 403 Forbidden on that link.

This stuff looked like any neural network playing a video game. It's definitely cool stuff, but google's AI isn't the first of its kind in this respect.

This seemed to be much more about choices we make and self-control than any sort of free will that we have. It doesn't address the key point about whether or not we are actually making those choices, just how we make them.

What do you mean desktop notifications?
