Re: DO NOT Bypass paywalls

Re: How to download Neocities site using CLI?

Re: let's talk about the tech industry

yeah, i know plenty of folks in the tech industry that love their jobs. you're making a pretty big generalisation, what experience do you have where this is true? /gq equally, depression isn't as clear cut as liking or disliking your job; or anything else, for that matter. if it were, it'd be super ...

Re: how many email accounts do you have?

I have one master inbox, and then a plethora of addresses that all forward solely there.

the muppets. the only one i like is miss piggy she's a g. everyone else is annoying. my advice for dealing with it is to stay away from everything muppet related. esp those stupid youtube music videos with them butchering songs (except for miss piggy she's great) I have something that will make you...
