    @toddgrotenhuis yep. Moderation and balance matter a lot, and are hard to achieve when things are so tasty!

    @toddgrotenhuis it's so hard, not only because sugar is addictive but because it's sometimes hard to find good food without it!

    Lately I draw the line at raw fruit, because it doesn't make me instantly feel bad in the way that cane sugar does - I feel like that's a decent indicator.

    @a_seagull_story It's validating that it wasn't in there for like, 3 years and I just now noticed :) Kudos for tracking the Firefox changelog as well as you do!

    @Archimage I saw Food5's Erin Jeanne McDowell's Pineapple Tart Tatin in this amazing video about mastering fruit pies, and it looked amazing.

    @twweaver You might find Maciej Ceglowski's take to be a bit of an antidote:

    @jayeless Welcome! You do a great job describing the "canonical self-hosting" concept that I've shared your post with some friends who I think might be ready to move over to self-hosting :)

    @kulturnation Yes, it's good to get a solid feel for the bike before you start having to contend with the whole "woops I forgot it's fixed" phenomenon. A flip-flop hub is great for that!

    @kulturnation Single speed is so much more efficient overall. Now it's just a short leap to fixed gear! In my experience, fixed with brakes is the best for city riding, because it's easy to modulate speed in traffic.

    @jidabug Yes, that's the thing I appreciate most about dogs - their capacity to love.

    @jidabug is your dog a mastiff/lab mix? It looks so much like my recently-departed mastador that it brought tears to my eyes.

    @a_seagull_story That's great, I'd love to see it!

    I try to stick to standard vim features to make it easier to switch machines, but I do love goyo and vimwiki for organizing my notes and writing.

    @a_seagull_story absolutely. It's the first thing I install if it's not already available.

    @toddgrotenhuis I just love Leguin's writing. I recently read the Hainish novels, and it's amazing how much deeper the writing got toward "Five Ways to Forgiveness" and "The Telling". That's what made me feel like I was ready to try the Kesh stories, even though they fall a bit further out of my "Sci/Fi and Fantasy" comfort zone :)

    Did you know that LeGuin made an album of Kesh folk music to go along with the book? It's actually pretty great!
