💭 Jonah I'm starting college in a few months. Does anyone here have advice for anything?
😃💬 Javier Some experience a culture shock in the dorms or the classroom. Expectations are high and unknown. Lectures may sound familiar or unfamiliar. If I had to go back I would take better care of my time management and clear, concise and attainable academic and personal goals. I would not be afraid to say no if comes down to do things that I clearly don't like.
☝ Jean-David Moisan What are you going to study?
Eric Most important part is to just show up to class & pay attention. No phone or browsing. Most exams will be straight forward if you're attentive. Finished college about 8 years ago and honestly found ratemyprofessor very helpful for picking good instructors.
Zero Edge Drop any class or professor (within 2 week cut off) that you think you will have a hard time passing.
💻👿 Kenneth Jensen Don't be afraid to change your major. Join a club or two, and talk to your professors; they're people, too!
Rsm Best open-source podcast option?
👨‍💻🎧 Matthieu V. I'm using AntennaPod antennapod.org on Android, it has everything needed (:
👨‍💻🎧 Matthieu V. Just came along obsidian.md it make me want to structure my notes/ideas but I don't really know where and how to start... Maybe it would be a great software to start doing some daily journaling
🦇 Arr Not F/LOSS, tough?
😃💬 Javier I tried Evernote and other myriad of tools to organize my data too. No luck so far. Visualizing things in a way that evoke/trigger my memory is tricky. I do my daily journaling with a python console I wrote that stores my musings with the date and current weather temperature on a single text file that gets checked in on a local git repo. It's pretty boring. I should post the python console in Github or something.
Dan I've been using CherryTree for as long as I can remember and I can't get enough of it. I'm sure it's not doing anything unique with the hirearchical style of notes, but it is as basic and advanced as I like my software so it follows me from install to install. All of my worldbuilding/creative writing stuff is just as chaotic as my physical notebook.. so maybe it wont help you organize anything if you're like me and prefer the chaos, but worth checking out either way
Nick I downloaded Obsidian recently, and as a casual Wikipedian, enjoy the idea of [[linking]] more than I like Notion databases. I've always wanted to use one of these knowledgebase apps, but my life simply isn't complex enough to warrant it yet :)
Rsm How are things? Slow or moving fast?
Zero Edge Both somehow. But probably more fast than slow. Economy is sailing..
👦🏼 Robert Blinov I like Subreply's minimalism.
🏒 Lucian Marin I'm glad you find it easy to use. Welcome to !
Rsm Refreshing, isn't it?
💭 Jonah me too! out of curiosity are you the youngest person on subreply?
Rsm Single-digit temperature again this morning. Somebody tell the this is the tropics we're in.
☕✍️ David Antoine Sunny for a few days here in Belgium after the floods. 25C. Then rain again. It's about 250 days of bad weather a year here. 100 days of cumulated sun is what we have more or less. Maybe more depending on the year. I don't think it exceeds 150 days. Depressing.
Zero Edge People act like if you just "vaccinated everyone" then you wouldn't have to worry about variants.. You do realize the virus has mutated multiple times within a year right? There is no way you can vaccinate the entire population of the world to 100% within a year. Even if you vaccinated 100% of the USA other countries wouldn't be able to so fast so guess what? Variants. You can't win this. Sorry.
🏒 Lucian Marin Virus would have mutated anyway. Vaccines help us have partial wins. It's not a total loss or victory.
Rsm Are the variants not less vigorous, less threatening? That's good, right?
☕✍️ David Antoine The vaccines may have induced those variants as well. There is a very good Livestream with Lex Friedman and Bert Weinstein discussing that possibility. A vaccination campaign at the height of a pandemic was maybe not the right thing to start. Weinstein also talks about the Ivermectin drug which seems extremely effective against the virus but is totally kept on the back burner... Partial win like Lucian said, at best.
💭 Jonah read.cv is also well designed, check it out!
🏒 Lucian Marin I wanted to built something just like this but with job posts and private messages. I like how they integrated we worked at the same company at the same time.
Zero Edge Adding a new word to my dictionary. macron. noun. a person who abuses power in attempt to satisfy their cowardice. -> "Every time I wanted to go hang out with my friends my ex boyfriend turned into a complete macron."
Rsm Next, verb and adjective forms.
Zero Edge I mean at least math is universally agreed on. Everyone knows 2+2 = 5.
😃💬 Javier It will if you have a cow on a volatile. ;) quantamagazine.org...
