I'm really confused how Google is pushing me out of Google Play Music and into YouTube Music, when YTM is missing features that GPM has had for years. (As similar as the interfaces are, I can't believe GPM has a "clear playlist" option and YTM doesn't.)
And don't even get me started on how random "bootleg" videos are prioritized in search results over artist/label-uploaded non-video music.

If you use paypal, they've recently removed the checkbox for "log me in automatically on this device" and just made that the default. Go to settings->security to turn it off permanently. (I never want auto-login on any device for any account that has access to my money. I don't even auto-login to Amazon, or Google Pay on my phone, etc.)
Today's Poorly Drawn Lines is so 2020...
Action precedes motivation, procrastination precedes frustration.
My recipe to getting shit done is breaking down tasks into smaller and smaller chunks, until they seem almost too trivial to accomplish. Take baby steps into the right direction instead of going for the big leaps! Persist and you will eventually get there. Believe in yourself!
I love that a person registered a domain and set up hosting just for this: https://www.nohello.com
Also, I could not possibly agree more with their advice.
I look at how programming gets more and more abstract, to the point that some devs are just writing "glue" that ties together more complicated modules written by someone else.
I want to lament this state of things, that modern devs don't tend to have the low-level understanding previous generations do, and feel like this is some kind of step backwards.
But then I think about how the assembly programmers must have felt the same when the first compiled languages were created.
Even if legalized, there's a whole generation or two that's going to have trouble adjusting to "it's not shady to grow cannabis". We were exposed to the war on drugs since grade school, we've seen it portrayed as illegal in countless movies. And now I see Jim Belushi running a legal grow op and it feels shady to me. I support legalization, and my head is all for it, but my feelings have a lot to overcome.
