Carbon calculator | ClimateCare
Interestingly, despite being pretty close in calculating CO2 to https://pinboard.in/u:atomicules/b:d73164507063 it results in a lower price for flights and fuel/heating.

Still undecided how effective carbon offsetting actually is though

Absolutely No Machete Juggling » Assholes: A Probing Examination
Spelt arsehole wrong.

Drat... I'm being an arsehole...

Sometimes I am an arsehole at work. I DO NOT WANT TO BE. I don't _think_ I'm a arsehole all the time, rather there are just certain triggers (systems, policies, etc) that wind me up no end. Stuff I try to distance myself from, but keep getting dragged back into that then results in me being a dick. It's difficult, I think, to differentiate between caring/passion/opinion and arsehole sometimes.

Also... don't want to use the word, but probably some of this: burnout.

I think "fixed" in a later release in that they've improved the error handling / message. But otherwise a confusing issue.. mine was due to having XDG_CONFIG_HOME set to some odd value due for the keybase cli (that I had completely forgotten I'd set).

Running Your First Marathon - The Ultimate Beginner's Guide | Hobby Help
Jen from Hobby Help kindly got in touch to point me at this article. If you want to prepare better for a marathon than I do then this is a good guide. The key difference is I'm not running marathon races/events, I'm just running out by myself so you are unlikely to want to copy my technique. For my last marathon I:

- Didn't eat any more or less than normal before hand
- Just took a bag of apricots and ate three apricots every 30 mins
- Had a single 500ml bottle of water at half way

I definitely agree with some bits: Having headphones and music is necessary for when you need a bit of a distraction and/or motivation; I save it until I need it. And I one hundred percent agree with "Share Your Experience and Reflect on Your Race", which is, after-all, why I've written blog posts about it.

_It's pretty rare I get anyone emailing as a result of my website so when they do make an effort to it's nice to acknowledge it_.

Seems like a bit of a rabbit-hole. I think for high `unused_allocated` enabling background_gc is a better route.

How Men Became "Emotional Gold Diggers" — Men Have No Friends and Women Bear the Burden
Wow. I want to say "What horseshit!", but I suppose I should just say an incredibly one-sided and warped view of things. It does try to clarify "American Relationships", but goes on to pull in "British Studies" (without any context). I suppose actually by the end the article is going in the right direction it just does so in an incredibly clickbaity and incendiary way.

There are a few reasons why a partner (male or female) may lack friends:

- Controlling partner (which can actually be a women! The fucking horrors! In a woman & woman relationship or a woman and man relationship)
- Living "remotely" (in which case often both partners are screwed and rely on each other for friendship. The horrors! Imagine a couple supporting each other!)
- No fucking time. Be it too much paid work or looking after kids, animals, the house and outside, etc. But (the fucking horror!) at least you have each other
- No money for either of you to travel, etc to see friends
- Ill health of a partner, the other one is a carer (again: The horrors! Imagine a couple supporting each other)
- And so on.
