Let's share details of our mundane existences. It might make someone feel better :)

“The first step in solving a problem is to recognize that it does exist.”

Through Mon-Fri, I wake up at 5AM everyday. If it's raining, I'll drive my wife to the station at 5:20AM, so she can catch her 2hr train to work.

When I get back, I turn on the coffee machine and make the bed.

My wife loves her plush toys being used as decorative throw pillows. I arrange
her Tokidoki Mermicorno, Pokemon Haunter, Pokemon Gengar and Klepto Cat on the doona(.au).

I then hit the switches on the rack mounted power-boards, and hear the whirl of
the fan inside the Netgear GS724T switch. I then start up my little servers, a
HP Thin Client and a 10 year old ITX 1RU custom build, both running Slackware
14.2.

I then feed the cats and make my coffee: 1 part hot water; 2 parts coffee; 1 part heated skim milk; no sugar.
I drink 2 mugs every morning. 3 if I was boozing the night before. My caffeine tolerance is getting out of hand.

I start up my workstation and enter my key for dm-crypt and auto-login.

I start mocp & put on some ambient/drone or psychill(currently listening to CELL - Hanging Masses). I check my mail & RSS feeds. Here, I usually spend about an hour reading through articles and renewing my disdain for humanity.

By the time I reach the end of my RSS feeds, my saved job searches hit my Inbox. I spend about 30mins sifting, adjusting cover letters/resumes and applying. If there is a phone number listed, I’ll make a note to myself to give them a call during business hours.

I’ll then do my usual single-pass web circuit of arisuchan, 4chan and YouTube.

At 8AM, I’ll eat if it’s a workout day. 2 fried eggs, sun-dried tomatoes on homemade dark rye toast with Trinidad scorpion chilli sauce, followed by a small bowl of muesli with skim milk.
If it’s an off day, I will fast until midday.

If I have found any job leads or phone numbers, I follow them to see if they lead anywhere.

I will then do general up-keep & maintenance around the house. Clean the kitchen & bathroom, tend to our vegetable garden. Apply any security updates to servers & workstations.

11AM hits, and I begin my workout, which mainly consists of body weight work & compound movements with dumbbells.

I then eat again: 200g tuna with coleslaw, mayo &Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Is the two hour train ride both ways? Having to spend four hours a day for work sounds horrible.

up at 0600 weekdays for work, though i'll chill in bed for about 20 minutes or so. my wife will never be awake at this time. breakfast, scrub up, dress, and I'm out the door just before 0700. commute is 15 minutes by bus which i choose because I prefer to be driven rather than drive myself and some are good to chat soykaf with. very rarely I'll bring my car/motorbike if I have errands to run during or after work.

0725 start with planning minutiae and going over reports from the evening prior, all things being normal this will be done within an hour. from there the regular day routine will be a mixture of meetings, planning, emails, and calls/teleconferences. lunch at 1200, we have a cafe in our building that puts together solid meals for excellent prices. occasionally the missus will pop in to eat with me. winding up my work day starts at 1445 which is basically setting all the wheels in motion for the next day and i'm out at 1530.

Home by 1600 where I just loaf about talking with my wife, now that the weather is improving i'll do some stuff outside. I will occasionally be roped into helping her with dinner which I am all to happy to oblige, of course I'm always on dishes duty. Dinner will be done and dusted by 1800, after which more often than not some friend/family member will show up to visit so we keep them company. If not I'll muck about on the computer (like now) for an hour or two. We keep television, movies, and such for the weekends. I keep off the devices an hour before bed so I'll normally have some physical thing(s) to read which will usually follow me into bed at 2200 and I have no idea what time I actually sleep but it happens quickly and painlessly.

Weekends definitely have more variety but I'll save that for another post.

my life is pretty irregular due to homelessness however these things are pretty constant lately
wake up at 4:00 and roll over/snooze or shower until 4:30 and meditate on Goddess until ~5:30 or 6
then I make breakfast & my lunch, I have to leave my squat before the sunrise so I'm not spotted, it wasn't always like this but this is a new factor and I actually kind of enjoy it, though I wish my stuff wasn't so exposed & I'll likely build a little cabinet or something incase someone snoops my area while I'm out
then I ride my bike 1000000000 miles to wherever I have to go, usually 2 towns away
then I soykafpost on mastodon and browse the chons for hours at an open public wifi space during most of the day
then I usually steal something to eat and wait until sunset while dancing/listening to music behind the abandoned $LETTER_mart
then after dark I climb on top of this one storage container no one knows about (on my family's land, but they refuse to house me so one day I will come in with a gang or a civil suit and demand my rightful heritage) and where I keep my important stuff, organize my things, pass out for a while, then carry stuff to my main squat which is not that far away and make food or sleep around 9/10/11 pm
really I spend a lot of time in transit, I hope to get a scooter or something with a motor cause while my legs are RIPPED it's really tiring and embarrassing to be riding my bike everywhere as an adult. I used to live in my van and just keep it parked in an unnoticed place for years at a time so that was easier but recently moved so I have very little. Picking up the pieces slowly though so I should have some actual money next month, right now I'm just scraping by with $0.00 and the lousy pittance da gubbamint hands out
as far as loops what I eat is generally something called 'kitchari' which can be eaten for every meal, just rice and lentils boiled with tumeric & w/e veggies you want to throw in, peas n karrots gud. also this bagel place has free dive open can all day every day so I live off those lol, again with the living dead?
really I'm just hustling for a while and avoiding paying rent until I can buy a plot of land to homestead on & lain it out with solar panels and all that jazz, as it stands my squat is awesome and seems like if I play it right I won't get caught and can easily overwinter in it. by then I hope to be able to change my schedule to more around programming, because of thiPost too long.

Tron is one of my favourites. When my dad died I did a big marathon of 80s movies that he either took us to see or brought home on rental. This was one of the important ones to remember.

I compare it a lot to The Wizard of Oz. Both films wanted to showcase a technology that was still in its infancy (Technicolor, CGI), both are "portal fantasy" and both feature the same actors in double roles; one in the mundane world and one in the other marvelous realm.

Didn't see Legacy for some reason but there were a ton of video games. Discs of Tron had an ingenious design. You were actually playing via a reflection in a pane of glass at 45º while the real monitor was below, the readout backwards. The reflection was cast before a background cyberscape, giving it a 3D vibe I never saw in any other coinop game.

There was a game called Tron 2.0 released in the early 2000's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tron_2.0). It's got an interesting storyline, and a very clever weapon and upgrade combat system. Best of all, the disc combat is intuitive, effective, and fun (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsYwN5lafg4). For a licensed game made decades after the movie it's based on, it's surprisingly good.

So what? He didn't touch them, why destroy his career over it? He respected them and didn't touch them or ask them to masturbate for him. I don't get the #metoo movement here. They want to create a puritanical world where there's never any sex, secrets or fun between colleages.

The world has lots of complexity. For a thing to be able to take in or host a certain amount of complexity, it has to be more complex. Should they have the same complexity, they would either be identical (you can't put one bottle into another if they are the same), or of a different shape (incompatible). Complexity can be quantitative (a set of 10000 words that fit only one pattern) or qualitative (one clever rule that generates the same 10000 words, no more, no less) - these two being equivalent. Or you could have a mixture: 20 rules that generate either the one clever rule or the 10000 words - they are equivalent after all.

The world seems to be completely, purely quantitative: every little bit of it is just there, just the way it is. There is no need for rules and laws to connect the dots, because every possibility and moment for all time is already rendered. Or does it seem qualitative? There is only one great thing from which all other things, truths, laws and ideas come from, be it an axiom, a god, chaos, or some funky stuff like energy or love or lain. Let us not forget that these two extremes are one and the same thing: the entire world.

We humans have an impure, mixed view on the world. We have some of the details and some of the rules, but neither is pure. We don't really know any precise factual details, and neither do we know any universal truths. We have understood over time that neither can really replace the other for us: you can have lots of data and facts, they are worthless if you can't connect them and think for yourself; and you can be a genius with an IQ of 150, it's wasted if you are in a psychosis and out of touch with reality. The closest we can get to "quantitative reality" is data. The closest we can get to "qualitative reality" is intelligence.

Data is dumb as fuck, just idly sits there. We hoard it, mine it, make experiments, record history and weather and events. Intelligence under the right circumstances can produce data, but you need to get lucky. The more pure the intelligence, the less it is concerned with banal things like survival - just like patterns aren't really there (only perceived) intelligence almost wants to be nowhere. Interesting hoards of data seem to entice intelligence through curiosity. We try to balance the two, and sometimes get the impression that one or the other is the superior way to go.

Regardless of which impression we hold, we will never have complete understandiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

are you sure you understand what "quantitative" and "qualitative" mean?
physical theories, such as the theory of general relativity, are quantitative.
psychological data, such as answers to 'which of the following words best describe how you felt', can be qualitative.

 No.2000

>>1999
Those words are etymologically rooted in 'quality' and 'quantity', any halfwit can see that. If they can see that, they can also understand what those words are used for when trying to grasp the ideas above, so the word usage fits its purpose.

Beyond that, I really don't care how some niche groups preferred to form new words from the etymological root any more than I care for the syntax of 'for' in programming languages I'm not using.

Ask me about any problem in the world & I'll explain how it could best be fixed and how you could best help to do so.

you can try to dispute my assertions but if you take that line of action in most cases your commentary will be useless.

I fully expect this thread to end with you all fallowing my directions like some cult, because my arguments are so astonishing insightful and convincing, we will save the world. pls be courteous to one another, you may now ask your questions.
