kwesx so you're telling me that I could put a GLinet device at my homebase and connect to it from the road and use it as a VPN?
hidden for non-membersin #_gear20h
yes
hidden for non-membersin #_gear20h
I mean, you could do that with almost any routing device, but in this case, it does it automatically for you through the interface
hidden for non-membersin #_gear20h
right... that's awesome

hey guys, quick Q about the routers - I travel with an Intel NUC running ubuntu, and can easily set up a VPN and a hotspot in any apartment/hotel so all devices run through that. What would be the advantages of using a travel router? Would it even make sense to take both the NUC and a router? (the router is much more portable and can work in cafes/airports/coworks, so that's the only advantage I can see right now)

jzxishwuspypl just looking at echothread. Seems pretty cool. I built something a while ago that scrapes a slack channel for links and emails it to a group once a week. I made it for a js slack group and links kept getting buried and history lost. It was a way to capture them for later browsing.

Hey team! I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with long-term junk boat rental? My friend was in Vietname and he was told that you can often rent a junk boat for up to a month at a time, but he forgot to get details and now Google is failing.

Anyone here that is developing browser extensions? Looking around for some boilerplate project that lets me write modern JS/React etc.
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
from what i hear there is no framework
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
oucvmfxagvefya was building one i think
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
Many resources I’ve found are quite a few years old too. Just too lazy to setup Webpack and whatnot to get a modern developer experience 😂
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
I was writing in vanilla, with some jQuery
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
The issue is that there's two parts, a "content" and "background" set of scripts. They can only communicate via messaging, so I think outside basic content rendering, you won't be able to leverage a lot of features of a more full framework
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
I used template script API to draw content too, which took a lot of the drudgework out and let the content layout be more sane
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
I’ve only done 2 hours of research so huge knowledge gap here. But yeah that’s what I figured too. I do have a few pages that I wanted to create that would benefit from having React to render my view. I think they’ll be mostly self contained. But I’ll do some more googling 🙂 and otherwise plain JS/html it is
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
Yeah, it's pretty frustrating to make them. Documentation is so so, and a lot of the tooling is lackluster. I'd keep it as simple as possible
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
On the plus side, Chrome and Firefox use very similar frameworks for plugins, so you can leverage most of your code between them
hidden for non-membersin #_coders17h
Yeah I saw that cross browser extension should be fairly straightforward. Thanks 🙂

Be sure to thoroughly read the docs on debugging. It's quite convoluted and finicky. If you have two displays, makes it go a bit smoother

I was reading that the sensor module is too thick compare to the LCD thickness, so they would have to make the screen thicker, or do a bump (which wouldn’t pass their design). So until they get the module thinner, or get the off-axis recognition so good that it could work mounted by the keyboard, we probably won’t see FaceID on the laptops.

I did the same with a very 'by the book' insurance rep, so I'm confident it's good for at least one mishap while traveling.
When traveling for work a few years ago, all my personal and work gear was stolen out of a car in San Francisco. My business insurance would not cover my work gear because I didn't have an alarm on my office back in Portland, OR. (Try and make sense out of that excuse)
My renter's insurance covered everything and there wasn't really any discussion of how long I'd been in SF or where I was headed.

I’m not smart enough either, but my gut says to use a SuperRich exchange in Thailand. My logic is a Thai company is going to be happier to buy Thai and get rid of Dong, than a Viet company would be to get Bhat, so the exchange should be more favourable. If you google SuperRich Thailand their site will show you the live rate and also all of the addressess for their locations. If your flying out of BKK they have an office in the basement of BKK by the train station.

Yeah so obyscdsgqskvrt hpbst I'm usually setting up the NUC this way (ethernet in, hotspot out). It's not made specifically for that, of course, but it can handle a hotspot with 5-6 connected devices. It's also quite nice to have a device that is connected 24/7 to the TV and speakers, and that's basically the main reason I have it with me.

Rented it for 7 days but only used 1. I really think that if you stay in a central area of Canggu, there’s no need for scooters.

But, if scooter is your thing, it sure is easier than walking. But not essential like most people say it is. 🛵

I’m right now living in Pererenan (blue icon on the photo), it is still walkable by the beach, but takes 30 min. Very nice area indeed for whoever prefers more peace.

I personally don’t like too quiet places, important to mention that as well. So I’ll move there, where it all happens (and as of Dec 13th, it’s not crazy busy at all, just regular Bali).

wkajilnbqeexa I think converting to usd before leaving would work well.. unless you go to the official superrich branches in Bangkok and not the knockoffs, converting to usd and then later converting usd to vnd once you arrive is likely the most favorable exchange rates
hidden for non-membersin #thailand6h
Bkk airport has one of the branches in the basement if you happen to fly out there
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
My interpretation is open relationship is a core relationship between two people where other people are independently allowed for either individual
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
Polyamory being where multiple people are involved within the same large relationship
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
But that might be total bollocks, it’s just my interpretation of a field I know little about
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
yea cause I guess you could talk about the amount of people and who is aware of/intimate with who, and you could also talk about in which ways those people are intimate
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
generally an open relationship is what peaqeslf said, there is a primary relationship
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
the other partnerings are just "for fun" as it were
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
not relationships
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
polyamory implies actually relationships between all the bonds
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
"not relationships" meaning what in this context?
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
that doesn't mean it has to be a group all in a relationship with each other
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
not more than sex?
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
it could be A is dating B, C, D and D is dating A and B and E and C is dating A and F, etc
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
people define what "not relationships" are in the context of their open relationship
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
sometimes it's just sex but no dates
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
sometimes dates are fine but the primary always gets priority
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
sometimes it's just swinging, so only when they're with each other
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
and swingers would be a kind of open relationship? do swingers ever engage in sexual relations without the other partner?
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
the main difference is that in polyamory there is the potential to love everyone "equally" (as equally as is possible), whereas an open relationship has that open relationship as the top love
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
haha that depends on the swingers but most swingers I know only do play parties with their partner

hidden for non-membersin #_relationships6h
I guess, as you said, it depends

From what I’ve learned, best practices on LinkedIn to get most of it:

– Make your subtitle really obvious that you’re freelance/for hire e.g mine is UX/UI Designer (Freelance, Senior)
– Make your “job description” really clear and include client names if possible
hidden for non-membersin #___general6h
If someone thinks of me, they can search me on LinkedIn, instantly see I’m freelance and send me a message.

😂
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships5h
in my experience with knowing a good amount of people who have tried or currently engage in these types of relationships, many people seem to approach open relationships/polyamory from the perspective of it being a panacea for what is "hard" about monogamy. Not enough sex? open the relationship. Not feeling fulfilled emotionally? open the relationship. Wanting to find someone else, but don't want to be alone in the process? open the relationship.

Of course this motivation seems to almost always result in MORE drama and a further splintering of the original relationship. From what I can tell, this is because the original relationship lacked the foundation of good communication and one or both people were looking for fulfillment from the relationship that they were not able to cultivate on their own.

From my perspective (polyamory especially) requires MORE (energetically/emotionally) in order to be successful. Polyamory is taking the challenges from being in a committed relationship with ONE person and multiplies it.

Open relationships on the other hand seem to be more of a "choose your own adventure" and in every situation I've seen, stem from a lack of something in a current monogamous relationship. I think that many people, as bztxnsawrakszylr mention, aren't really honest about what they want from a relationship and mostly want stability so when the reality of what an open relationship really means is revealed, the common response is jealousy.
hidden for non-membersin #___general5h

Largely ditto
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships5h
from my perspective, there are not many people who have a good grasp on what it takes to build a successful monogamous relationship and thinking that adding more people to the mix will make it easier is a bit naive.
hidden for non-membersin #_relationships5h
it's a lot of "I want an open relationship so if you can't give me what I want, when I want it, I can find someone else" (not saying all are like this)

I wish more people found fulfillment in themselves before getting deep into something with another human. I think it would prevent a lot of the drama and co-dependancy

Or, literally just the passing of time regardless

Doing it yourself can get complicated and glitchy with WordPress. Some of the more premium hosts integrate with CDNs to make the process easier. I've used pantheon a few times and it works well, just comes at a higher price.

Oh, the site is already hosted with Pantheon, I didn't realised they offer that?

I can take a look at your website (consultation) to evaluate the current state and offer you the best suitable solution
hidden for non-membersin #_coders4h
DM me if you are interested
hidden for non-membersin #_coders4h
Yeah, pantheon includes CDN now. If you're on an old plan, support may need to do a conversion to enable it and guide you through some DNS changes. They also have some good methods to stack cloudflare if needed. If you Google "pantheon CDN", there's a decent page about it.
hidden for non-membersin #_coders4h
If performance is still an issue with the CDN, plugins/massive images could be issues. One site I have hosted on pantheon has 8+ second load times due to some archaic plugins, so we're just scrapping wp and replacing with react.
hidden for non-membersin #_coders4h
Oh, my problem isnt speed or CDN, its purely an images solution. Admin users of site want to reduce their workload, dump any image in to a post, and (my custom script or plugin or image optimisation service) sorts it all as performant as possible for the user

"festa de santa lucia" i think? i didn't google why but heard something about how many sicilians can't/don't eat pasta or bread today so it's unofficially "arancini day" (if you see a ke palle they are fucking swarmed)

Oh man..that explains a lot, I did see tons of ppl in line for cake/arancine or whatever

Hey everyone — I have MASSIVE altitude sickness. (Constant headache, loss of eyesight (!), exhaustion) I had to leave La Paz after two days and now I’m in Cusco and it’s only marginally better. I’m determined to do Machu Pichu this weekend. After that, I can chill in Lima and life can get back to normal. I need to be highly focused 8 hours a day, and I’m too distracted.

Any solutions?

• Caffeine seems to work the best but can’t take after 3pm
• Coca tea/leaves/candy don’t seem to do much
• Anyone try those oxygen canisters? They look like a scam, but I’m desperate.

Awesome, thanks for the suggestions!

Probably not best to push yourself to that extent. Listen to your body.
hidden for non-membersin #___general4h
Best thing you can do is hydrate when at a higher altitude. When I was climbing Kilimanjaro they recommended at least double what you would drink at home with 3L as a minimum.

You're probably right 😄 If I can hear any live music before 10 pm I will count it as a win

Woof. Slow down.

Aguas Calientes, the portal to Macchu Picchu, has some medical facilities, but you don't want to get sick going up or down the trail. I have Been There and Done That with bad 24 hour gut bug, would NOT recommend.

i also had pretty bad altitude sickness in La Paz and lasted for several days. i heard it could take over a week to go away in some cases. after La Paz I also went to Cuzco and Machu Pichu, and only felt slightly better. Anyway, my recommendation once you get to Aguas Calientes take the bus and avoid the hike.

I think the NUC is fine, unless you need to support routing wifi signals, which is pretty common. You’re not going to have Ethernet everywhere you go

They’re going to rely heavily on trade agreements with CANZUK and US now
hidden for non-membersin #_politics3h
I think Britain’s ability to negotiate deals with other countries separately is going to be pie in the face of EU and trigger more defections. That’s why the EU was trying it’s damndest to prevent it from happening. It’s going to be catastrophic for the EU in the long run to have a major member leave and come out the other side with decent prospects.
hidden for non-membersin #_politics3h
The EU overplayed their hand, imo - but Macron, Markel, Juncker, etc have been overplaying their hand for a long time and likely triggered the eventual collapse of the European project.

See if you can get ahold of some diamox in Cusco. That stuff works wonders.

It took about a week of being in La Paz for me to feel better.

hidden for non-membersin #___general2h
gvxaycmbsiqbot Diamox should help out. Rest/time helps as well to get acclimated. I did Kilimanjaro in 5 days with no extra oxygen and no drugs. I was fine until the last hour and a half at the summit. It sucked. Hiking with the flu and would not recommend you go into anything like that. That being said, I was just in Peru a few months ago and I did not hike Machu Pichu but I did hike Choquequirao which is considered a bit harder. Either way I'm pretty sure Machu Pichu is lower elevation than Cusco. I know Choquequirao is so that can help. No matter what, go easy. The hike is no good if you can't enjoy it.

produce more blood cells and tell them to carry more oxygen too

lazy blood cells are the worst

hidden for non-membersin #___general2h
Oxygen is not a scam! Definitely worth using especially if you're exhibiting such extreme symptoms. Was in Kathmandu recently and we used oxygen to get rid of the headaches, drink lots of water and rest properly for a day then start getting active again. The oxygen will help with immediate symptoms.

bphrdwq getting a locker in FL with a courier like Aeropost/Redlogistic/Redbox etc. This is the common way to get stuff from Amazon for example. You have to pay taxes though. The customs office asks for a receipt, and they'll charge you an import tax.
hidden for non-membersin #___general2h
Thanks so much. I’ll try Diamox. Someone told me to try Viagra, and it just so happens that I have way more of that in inventory than Advil (I lived in SE Asia — whatever :joy:). Neither of those worked!

I don’t think I’m exhibiting extreme symptoms, but I’m a fitness nut and work quite a bit so this is really fcking up my life! It feels like a severe hangover — I can grit my teeth and bear through it, but 5 days seems long! I’m been praying to all the gods and facing my own mortality.

I've read a bit about this and it was described as something like what you can lose/risk socially. You are learning social boundaries when you are young and there is a lot of testing those boundaries but as we get older we learn that it's not in our best interest to go outside of those boundaries because we are usually at our most vulnerable. Loss of money, prestige, relationships, etc. People care what others think quite a bit and that can transfer to an actual cost in some form. As we get older, you just don't give a shit because you simply have nothing real to lose. This is why your grandpa will just openly say something racist at times for example. It's a bell curve and most of it is taught.
hidden for non-membersin #_gear1h
I'm doing wired and at the moment, have no access to a wireless charger to test with right now. I noticed the battery was not charged after it being plugged in from last night. It's now died and I'll have to run it over to Sprint this afternoon but I did have an update last night and a totally separate wired charger is not working as well. Could be hardware but I thought I would check.

hello! I'm wanting a senior developer who's a bit of a generalist across different libraries/stacks to give me two or so hours of their time to review our codebase. Quick gig, just need honest impressions. PAID I suppose just send me a DM and we'll get into it

"Palermo too pays homage to Santa Lucia in memory of one of her miracles. In 1646, the wheat harvest failed and Sicily was gripped by a terrible famine. All seemed lost until, on Santa Lucia’s day, a ship carrying wheat finally docked at the port of Palermo. The starving population were handed rations of grain, but, too hungry to waste time transforming the grain into flour, they cooked it whole. A new tradition was born and every year on 13th December, _Palermitani_ renounce all flour-based food (pasta, bread, biscuits and cakes) and eat only rice-based dishes or traditional specialities, such as _cuccia_, made from whole wheat grain. All in all a good excuse for indulging in _arancine_ and _risotto_!"

It seems like a whole language by itself that is probably just known by that guy.. a quick search for it on Google doesn’t seem to give anything about it… I guess it doesn’t answer your primary question, but that’s certainly already a concern.
