☕ David Antoine 4100 tabs opened !? Are you OK Tom ? 😜
Nick Silvestri I never understand people who can browse like that! I never have more than 20 tabs open at a time on desktop, and 10 on mobile. I recently got the Tree Tab extension thinking it would help me in those moments when I have quite a few tabs, but I've gotten good enough at managing my tab volume that it doesn't even give me much value.
😀 Tom Four days ago, I closed all but 12 tabs. Now I'm at over 100 again. Most of them are HN posts that I want to get back to sometime.
😀 Tom holy f... I had over 4,100 tabs open in Firefox for Android. I had to copy them out in groups of 100 so I didn't crash the app.

😀 Tom This is the second story I'm reading where everybody instantly has access to everyone's complete digital life, secrets and all. In both stories, the world goes crazy and seems to break down. I wonder if it would actually happen that way. Probably.
🏒 Lucian Marin You already have access to anyone work history on LinkedIn and exactly what they worked on. Most important life moments are on Instagram. Code that all computers run on is public on GitHub. World's richest man spent his money on tweets and memes. We live in a Black Mirror episode or simply the 21st century.
😀 Tom Just started reading a novel. The description about getting on the computer and deciding whether to dial into AOL... the feels. It's crazy to think about, the Internet not being any always-on service.
🏒 Lucian Marin Gemini protocol reminds me of dial-up days in a good way. Any internet connection is better than no internet at all.
☀️ Robert "Nothing" is a good brand name. The tech of the future automates and simplifies life invisibly.
😀 Tom Reminds me of "Nobody" running for political office.
😀 Tom I'm watching a TV show, and one of the characters turns off an offscreen LCD TV. The sound effect of a CRT TV turning off was added to let the audience know that the TV was turned off.
😀 Tom I don't know why, but my cat doesn't like people at the door. I was watching a TV show and there was a doorbell ring in the show, and my cat growled at that.
☀️ Robert Not for long.
😀 Tom and speed :-) But I do look forward to a quieter machine. I just bought my first motorcycle. I contemplated getting an electric motorcycle, maybe my next one...
☀️ Robert Motorcycle vs. electric scooter: robertblinov.net/b...
😀 Tom The one advantage of a motorcycle over an electric scooter: range
😀 Tom It's funny/sad how people (from both "sides") jump at the explanation that something is a conspiracy when there are much simplier explanations. Occam's razor: inaccurately paraphrased as "the simplest explanation is usually the best one." I guess everyone loves a good story, or likes to make things fit their preconceived notions. Oh well.
😀 Tom Any other Scouts here? In the U.S., the Boy Scout Law is: A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
🏒 Lucian Marin I think read.cv is a worthy competitor on both design and functionality. I have an idea about a social space with private messages, channels with inline replies and mentions, a resume builder and jobs in supported cities... or build everything into Subreply. I find full threads to be hard to read after a few levels of indentation, so I want to get the most out of threads without displaying them in full.
😀 Tom A quick glance at that website, looks interesting. I tried signing up, but the Tom username was already taken, oh well... guess I'll have to stick with Subreply :-) Hey.Cafe was just too busy or whatever, I don't think I'm going to go back to it anytime soon.
😀 Tom After a couple of weeks of losing momentum in my weight loss, I have resumed losing weight. 35 pounds down in 3 months. Looking to lose at least 25 more.
🏒 Lucian Marin Don't chase happiness. Become antifragile. youtu.be/e-or_D-qNqM
😀 Tom A lot of that is what I mean by being able to go with the flow. Yes, it does mean being able to handle changes that happen with products, work and life, but it also means "to make the best of things that happen" as the person in the video says.
😀 Tom Hmm... I want to try fencing.
