What new tab extension do you use?
Blank page because it's instant.
I don't use new tabs
I use this one: addons.mozilla.org... . Very useful as a markdown organizer on a new tab.
Any podcasts with great audio quality similar to Cautionary Tales by Tim Harford, Hidden Brain by Shankar Vedantam?
The Peter Attia Drive, but is the audio quality an important factor for listening to certain podcasts?
What colorscheme do you use with your code editor, dark or a light one?
Solarized Dark is my favorite theme.
Dark everywhere, i use Dracula because it supports so many apps: draculatheme.com
Light bad, dark good.
Midnight Blue is my favorite
I made my own it's called AposTheme. Check it out: marketplace.visual... Every time I use a different editor, I remake the theme.
One Dark or One Dark Pro and JetBrains Mono
I let pywal do it's magic.
Brogrammer, because it's vibrant and I love contrast. I use the scheme everywhere
xterm, except I set the foreground to amber (can't remember the hexcode off the top of my head) and the background to 000000h
Dark. Night Owl.
Javascript or Typescript?
Elm :D
Although I don't do much with TS I'd guess that it's just easier to work with for larger projects due to the strong typing. I'm wanting to learn how to correctly migrate projects to it...svelte just released official support for TS so I may try migrating my blog (using sapper) to it
TypeScript, but without turning on "strict mode" from the start. Explore it and use it as the superset of JavaScript that it is and slowly opt in with its best features as you go.
Either as long as they are Progressive Web Apps?
What do you use for task management, personal and professional? How do you go about it? Would you walk me through the process?
I use a mix of a couple things. Discord, GitHub Issues / Projects, Google Calendar, Joplin. Discord is nice to organize tasks with other people. GitHub Issues allow you to write detailed notes about a problem. GitHub Projects gives you a Kanban board. Google Calendar lets you setup daily reminders and mark incoming events. Joplin lets you take raw notes and organize your thoughts.
What chrome extensions/firefox extensions do you use?
ublock origin is all I need
chrome extensions on brave: gmail, nordvpn, nordpass
firefox: ublock origin, dark reader, bypass paywalls clean, vimium
I have a number installed in Firefox, which is probably a bad habit: Wayback Machine, User Agent Switcher, Tampermonkey, ClearURLs, Hoxx VPN, WebRTC Leak Shield, uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, SponsorBlock, Lastpass, unPaywall, Downloader for Tiktok, MEGA, SingleFile, and Download Picture from Instagram. I do use all of them though. I have more but they're so numerous I couldn't go through them all in one comment.
uBlock Origin and uMatrix, chromium. The WWW is much more pleasant. "Inspect element" is also underrated for fixing fonts or deleting pop-ups and notifications and e-stalking social media without an account (cough Instagram).
I can recommend: Workona, Lastpass, Honey, Stylish (for a custom Jira dark mode I've made), JSON Formatter, Save to Pocket, uBlock Origin
On Firefox I have these: app.telemetry page speed monitor, multi-account containers, h264fy, max tabs, order tabs by domain. I use macOS Light theme which I created: addons.mozilla.org....
What tools do you use to protect your online privacy? I use dnscrypt-proxy, hosts file, firefox, Signal. Is mullvad the best vpn? I don't use any at the moment.
hello fellow Americans, why is your food industry so devilish? Propagating lies. Mostly. It's coming to India too. But here, average people eat home-cooked meals. So, I think, it won't affect as much. Last but not the least, why don't you guys eat home-cooked meals? Although this might have changed in the current scenario.
Tea or Coffee?
Who is loving this small community, what are your suggestions? Mine, please add polls.
Could there be an ASCII only poll? That way the "ASCII" only aspect could be maintained and polling added.
The client is delaying the last payment unnecessarily. After, multiple request, no replay. Zilch. Nada. What do you do? Add a simple wait function multiplied by number of days to slow the web app down. I won't advise this when client is really in bad situation but you just know when to use this. Works every single time. Have you done anything similar on these lines? Tell me you story.
There is a story, where a high scholarly human asks, Goddes of wealth, how can a dumbo have such amount of wealth, and I do not? She answers, because of your knowledge, you get respect even if you don't own anything. But, for a dumbo, wealth is the only means to get respect from others. What do you prefer? Knowledge or wealth? In what percentage?
What communities are you active mostly on?
tildes.net, discord, reddit mostly.
discord, and I (mostly) lurk tildes and a few smaller subreddits
Discord, HN, Lobsters
Who else has started meditating in these turbulent times?
Try to type a smart quote, it replaced with a dumb one. Isn't it?
Do you agree with how 'Andrew Carnegie' ran his companies?
