Some good news:

A years-long project to develop a systematic way to clean the Great Pacific Garbage Patch finished an important test a couple of days ago. It removed a large amount of plastic. Like, so much that with about 15 additional copies of that test equipment, the entire patch could be cleaned in a few years.

"Why is this boot so hard to make?"

If a code project describes itself as "blazing fast" there's a 98% chance that it's slow as shit.

I've been maintaining the same pair of MDR-V500 headphones for the past 15 years, the plastic swivel broke on each side but it can be easily fixed with a bit of Jbweld type goop.

Most good headphone models are variations of the same neodymium driver design that has been in use for decades, and is unsurpassed. The good models rarely change. It's reliable, simple, and durable.

I'm on year 3 for this pair. My previous pair lasted 10 years before the plastic housing broke apart. I chose not to repair that, because it was also time to replace both the headband and ear pads. The newer one was the same, but now with a replaceable cable.

Replaced the ear pads on my headphones. Again. Good headphones have replaceable parts and can last a long time. (This ear pad size is common, and many models use it. Replacements are just a few dollars.)
