#Reading #Dune chapter 7 + 8. I keep hoping to read more about the Fremen. The one character we know is a bad guy is the only one who has expressed any consideration for them with the palm trees. I'm hoping the kid will get in that cave with one of them soon, so I can learn more of their struggle for water and with the ruling class.
I think it's part of the system that's getting overly excited. I keep having to re-enter my pin for the phone as if it's restarted, but not for my SIM. I'm guessing some process that keeps track of the authentication starts eating battery and is restarted. That would fit with it not always being warm and draining the battery, but I don't know what triggers it several times a day.
The Pixel 5 has been getting good reviews so I have definitely considered getting it before. But I decided I wouldn't. I'm hoping the next one isn't terrible. I'm hoping I won't have to get the 5.
#Reading #Dune chapter 3
I can't shake the feeling that all of these characters will have very minor roles in the plot of the book. Also feels a bit like chosen one meets Ninefox Gambit. Something about the style of writing I think, and the thing with multiple houses running various parts of society and not trusting each other. But I guess Dune came first by a long shot.
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
