😏 Yt L. Reading the news often makes me frustrated and angry, and I really can't do anything about what the news is reporting on. Considering giving it up entirely and purposefully avoiding the news.
Huw I rarely look at the news these days unless if it's for something local. My life hasn't been diminished by its abscence whatsoever.
Daedalus Can you elaborate how it is harder through Firefox?
Huw Taking fiverr.com as an example. If enhanced tracking protection is on I get an error while trying to login. I don't particularly place the blame on Firefox but it's still annoying.
🤔 Justin Dorfman Who's here via HN?
❄️ Geoff What browser is everyone using these days? Anyone on Microsoft Edge?
Huw Switched from Chrome to Firefox recently. Enjoying it but find it difficult to balance having stricter privacy settings and being able to log in to websites easily.
🍁 John J. Oh, really? I'm still formalising it in my head; haven't even finished my first run-through. But I'm under no illusions about how tough it's going to be to implement! Are you still making progress?
Huw I'm going to have another run through soon I think. The bit I found most difficult was actually making sure there is enough time blocked in for deep work. I'm in a hybrid between the manager and creator time patterns so finding opportunities are difficult.
🍁 John J. Tough. I managed to set a good pace with my training programme initially, but I've really hit a wall, this month in particular. Looking at new ways to structure my work now. I take it you're also WFH now; how's it been?
Huw I found that when I first started it was quite hard. Now that work has picked up again I find I'm much more productive.
Huw For those who are currently WFH since COVID, how have you found the adjustment?

🚲 Koen West (Not strictly WFH, but also an adjustment) I'm a university student, and I have found online education quite tough. To me, meeting my friends in the lecture halls every day has turned out to contribute a lot to the fun of studying. Now, there is hardly a distinction between course work and free time. In terms of education quality, I don't think the impact is that significant. However, I do _feel_ like it takes me longer to understand/process the same volume of information.
Olav Schettler I have always been an fan of remote work but was stuck in agile "we can only be productive with stickies" dogma. It is so great - albeit a bit exhausting for sure.
🌋 Pod Unk Before Covid I could never work from home. Now, in Covid world, I'm crazy productive.
Felix What are you currently reading? I need inspirations
Huw I liked Deep Work but found it was hard to fully put into practice.
