Tomorrow (Wednesday) again, @Tingyi will be running an art therapy session on Zoom, from 15:00 to 16:00 London time. Come join and take some time for yourself — we don’t often get the chance to do that. No art skills necessary, total beginners welcome, any art materials are fine (pen and paper too!)

@vulkanized @knights That's a good strategy! However, anxiety levels when struggling with a new codebase sometimes prevent implementation of good strategies :D

@knights I put print statements all over the place to get a sense of the execution flow.

Also if the project has a decent test suite, I figure out how to run that, so I'm a little more confident that changes I make don't break all the things.

@andr0nymous There's already some hefty discounts happening on the current model, which should be more than enough for my needs really.

@andr0nymous Tried both the QC35II and the Sonys, and going to go for the Sonys this time, as they feel more comfortable. Thank you for your advice!

@andr0nymous I’m considering the Bose Quietcomfort 35 (and the competition from Sony), so maybe about £200-250, though less would be great.

@irimi1 Thank you for sharing. Esc in the corner of the left thub cluster seems like a good call, I'm gonna steal that!

@flip Ah emojis are a good call, I'll have to see if I can add some of that!

@rostiger I was surprised how quickly I became comfortable with the Ergodox! But interestingly, I can work just as well with a normal laptop keyboard as well, the transition takes maybe 5 seconds.

I still think my ergodox layout needs tweaking though, for example I really enjoy having space and backspace in the left thumb cluster, but enter and tab in the right one sometimes feel a bit odd...

Hey Merveilles, what headphones do you recommend? My requirements are: have to be comfortable with glasses (so can’t be on-ear headphones), can’t be earbuds (as these irritate my ears), must have a decent microphone for calls, and I would prefer wired over wireless as I don’t want to have to worry about battery life. Noise cancellation is good, but not a must.

@amdt Yeah I mostly switched to coffee myself. We got an espresso machine early this year and it's been really great. For refreshments, filtered water in a bottle with bits of lemon and celery/cucumbers is also super refreshing!

@amdt I gave up on Coke Zero after @Tingyi asked me to, and I'm very very happy that I did. Teat of capitalism aside, it's just plain not good for your body 😩 I was an active coke drinker for something like 20 years... (regular coke/pepsi first, then diet/zero)

I notice that I don't use layers 1 and 2 of my Ergodox so much — basically only layer 1 for brackets/curly braces. Ergodox users of the fediverse, what do you use your layers for?
