“The romantics were prompted to seek exotic subjects and to travel to far off places. They failed to realize that, though the transcendental must involve the strange and unfamiliar, not everything strange or unfamiliar is transcendental.”

― Mark Rothko

I recently saw a review of the remarkable 2 tablet and one of the things that knocked down the score was that it didn't have it's own app store and this still baffles me.

@oak this makes me think of how a lot of discourse instances feel such as lines or the scsynth group (two that I hang out in occassionally).

what do people generally think of the Brave browser?

nearly every time I load up a Rust file in vim these days it is telling me there is a new version of rust-analyzer available and if I want to update. I really love that.
