That feel when tea making is muscle memory and your body auto-pilots to brewing when you're not manually controlling it.

Of course, one could pose the question and hope for the best. Deal with any misunderstandings a they come. Perhaps you'll get lucky. And you'll avoid looking like a dweeb.

That feel when asking someone what ought to be an otherwise straightforward question ~isn't~ due to heaps of unspoken cultural assumptions that poison the well.

So, before you can even pose the question you have to unpack all this ~bullshit~ from society at large.

And the cognitive load/effort to do so is just... too draining... so you just... ~don't~.

Still not sure how I feel about being able to go in my backyard, coo/hoot, and get the neighborhood doves to coo/hoot a call-response checkin back.

<joke>Talking to non-humans, is it ethical?</joke>

Also that longsuffering patience.

Right, speaking of Windows software, nomacs is the best image viewer.


Covers my minimum basics for a default image viewer:
- Minimal UI
- UI can be entirely hidden
- press C to crop
- crop is just a draggable rectangle
- crop rotates
- arrow keys to move through images in a folder
- paste from clipboard
- scroll to zoom

There are other nice-to-have features as well~ Frameless mode is sweet.

The Windows software landscape is an endless field of malware/adware/spyware.

If it's not open source and open licensed, et cetera... with the source posted online... I feel like it's a dangerous gamble to install it.

Even software from "reputable" and "professional" companies is sometimes suspect. :/

I was away from Windows for nearly a decade... I'd forgotten it was like this. All the old memories are returning, however. :/

These past few weeks my brain has convinced itself that "wotch" is the correct and best spelling for "watch", and I'm having trouble shaking it's conviction.
