Recomendations for durable earphones?
It turns out i treat my headphones super roughly. And ive broken the last two pairs ive had.
Anyone got recs for durable ones? Im willing to spend a bit more for something that will last
I tend to use wired earbuds, but im open to wireless ones as well

Reminder: you don't need to justify your boundaries to others.

I use a trick though, where I interleave 15 minute segments of something fun / exciting to me between tasks, so it doesn't feel like an endless pile of work.

"romance" 

I feel like an alien on a peculiar, unknown planet. :/

"romance" 

I don't think I understand what "romance" is.

My best explanation has always been "the re-enactment of tropes from media that are socially coded as romantic". Buying flowers, doing the Lady & the Tramp pasta thing, etc. But it's just.. mimicry! Interested in others' hopefully more nuanced thoughts on this.

sometimes (ok, often) I get surprised by the kinds of cool sci-fi stuff that already exists.

for example: we already have ION THRUSTERS!? :o

watching Steven Universe is such joyful self-care ⭐ 🌭

low-tech computing, sailing, bushcraft-y stuff, foraging, etc etc etc

I've been daydreaming a bit lately about a 'solarpunk school' that's a collection of either/both of online workshops that folx record + share, and also a directory of local meet-ups for in-person skill-/knowledge-shares

all geared around solarpunk-y topics

uxn thoughts 

I wish we (as a community) had benchmarks for performance of uxn on various old hardware. It would be helpful to know, in particular, the performance of sprite drawing & pixel drawing on various platforms.

I think that if we're developing uxn software with old hardware in mind, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense that we're all(?) doing it on super-fast computers made in the last 20 years. It lowers our odds of what we make being able to run on actual old hardware considerably.
