Not really. I enjoy the effect once the chores are done. The house is much more calming when it's clean.

I'd been managing to keep the house tidy, but the floor had been getting dusty and dirty. Because the baby takes up so much time, I had just been watching it get messy without being able to do anything about it. When I finally did get a chance, every swish of the vacuum was just… oh so good.

The house has felt magical since.

Man, I agree. Cleaning is always so terrible and undesirable to do unless I'm extremely bored and aching to do anything.

But when you're done and everything is clean and holy shit there's a FLOOR?! Amazing.

YES. I love the post-clean feeling of being able to move around without random stuff and clutter everywhere is great.

Rediscovering the floor was fantastic. My floorboards are quite pretty when there's no cat hair or random spills on them.

I agree it's great to be able to move around well… and find your stuff too!

But far and away my favourite part is that there's no little voice in my head telling me that I need to do any housework any more!

i don't like chores if i have to do it b/c of someone else.

however, on my own, it can be "TRR" or:
  • therapeutic

  • relaxing

  • refreshing

This is also good, usually I'll put on a record or two and go to town, it's a nice de-stresser.

Someone should make a new thread for talking about household chores. It seems that we have enough discussion going on for that!

On an unrelated subject I'm posting from the tiny little eeepc again. It's really smol.

Chromium and Firefox both crash now, so I'm using Midori. I just wish I could shrink the UI more, it takes up so much space on this thing...

Semi-relatedly, links seems to work pretty well with Jul. Browsing/posting from 600E once I find a network card sounds like fun.

Jul in Links works well because it's table-based (so the layout persists) and it's also just basic HTML without any silly fancy crap.

Re: basic HTML, it's kind of sad just how little functionality "modern" websites gain for the massive increases in resource use and complexity. It's not like people have gained the ability to do that many meaningful new things on the internet in the past 5 or 6 years even... It's just gotten more hostile.

pretty much this. at this point it's pretty much progress for the sake of progress.


it's kind of the same for hardware? I don't feel that computers or smartphones are significantly more powerful than they were 5 years ago. I don't feel any incentive to upgrade my hardware, and my phone is nearly 4 years old, laptop 2 years old.

Seriously, a lot of it isn't even for the website's functionality. So much of it is stuff that tracks you. That's why you'll often notice a slight performance improvement if you install things like Privacy Badger.

Biggest difference I can see there is the 486-based uC running Minix on your motherboard is more tamper-resistant.

Computers ARE getting better though. (This video goes into some details). It's just a much bigger focus is going towards making things smaller. We are starting to get close too how small we can do things using the type of tech we have (Silicon just not gonna work if it goes smaller), so there are some hurdles to overcome in the near future.
