Kind of pissed at the Fitbit app now. It said it needs location permissions to sync (I couldn't say why) so I let it. And when I later revoked the permission it wouldn't let me in the app. So I let it keep the permission. But this morning Android tells me it got my location in the background. Even though it said it was just for BT stuff. I now set it to permit access when the app is open (which bypasses their check and lets me use the app), I'm gonna see if it still syncs in the background.

I just got a Fitbit and can see this will be a problem because my phone battery just went from "maybe I'll skip the next generation phone if it sucks" to "oh fuck I need a new phone, like now". I'm really hoping it evens out in a couple of days when I stop testing this thing and just let it do what it wants with syncing.

Got engaged (about two weeks ago). Ordered rings the other day. Just saying.

I've had a couple of npd's in the last couple of weeks. Most recently this that came today. Surprisingly nice in the hand for such a tiny pen.

My spam lately has been about diabetes and knee pain. Is this an age thing?

And she's up. I think I got about five minutes.

Got to get up before the kid today. I think that has happened maybe once in the last year.

Android 10 downloading. The only big differences I can think of are dark mode and some privacy settings. I feel out of touch with the tech-news lately. Not sure if that's good or bad.

Hot Take:

Most internet culture (memes, video game mods, "pirating", etc) is a great example of a "Gift Economy" where people contribute to the culture simply because they want to.

People work really hard for no direct gain. Hours of work, for free and little credit.

I finished the ink swatches the other day. These are my bottles.

Spent the entire evening last night swabbing my inks. It's all very photogenic and pretty but I didn't even take one pic. I did learn I have more ink than I thought though. Maybe I'll take a picture when they are all done, I still have the Iroshizuku inks left.

Related: I've held off on getting an account on Patreon for so long. Because how do I decide who gets support and who does not. With everyone asking for money, how am I supposed to know who needs it the most? Maybe I'll just look at who has nice rewards 🀷

I'm considering something. I figure if I stop paying for premium on for example Reddit and Youtube I can spend that money on podcasts on Patreon. Truth is I don't use Reddit that much and Google surly doesn't need my money. Maybe the few ads that will get through my blockers will even help me stop wasting my time there. Not sure where this is going, just a thought so far.

Got my new e-reader today. I've only just loaded some books on it and read a couple of minutes. But this really feels like an improvement over my old one. I'm kind of excited.

I've been looking at this new ebook reader for the last couple of weeks. Today I surprised myself and finally ordered it, my old one works but is annoying in so many little ways. Now my question is: why is it that everyone I order something online, every time, it always friday evening. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Doing some political work tonight. First time in a while. Feels nice to be getting back to normal after the summer. Even if it's mostly prep for normal coming in a few weeks.

Did some cleaning today. Probably half will be re-inked the rest will get to take a break for now. I just have to figure out which ones and what inks to use.

Sigh. seems sold out at all the local stores. I might just buy it on the e-store instead. Wanted to play tonight. 🀷

I'm angry with the kids preschool and she hasn't even started yet. 🀦
