Even so, there are still plenty of variants on the standard analogue or digital face design; one of the weirdest things I've found about smartwatch face repos is that they are full of disgustingly tacky gaudy shit. Bad Rolex or Casio G knockoffs with low quality JPEG backgrounds, unreadable text, or just eerily similar to those weird 99p Chinese watches with a poster of Star Wars in them.

With applications like Watchmaker, you don't really need any programming experience at all to make a watchface, but if you are so inclined the scripting language is very powerful, and if that weren't enough you can build entire application-type watchfaces from scratch.

What should be a treasure trove of interesting, sleek, and cool designs that normal watches couldn't replicate even if they wanted to, is just full of shit. I do wonder why. It's what I use my smartwatch for - mimicking old TV continuity clocks, or the Swiss rail stop-and-go movement (yes, I know the Mondaine watch is available but it costs 5 times what my smartwatch cost and it can't check my messages).

Default mass attendance on Sunday, I've started dosing on lsd before I go. Since moving to London on my own for work, found some Polish ladm8s to have pints with after mass. Will probably check out the new Joker movie afterwards. Anyone seen it? Looks okay.

Just got some new keyswitches in the post, Kailh Box Royals. Needed something quiet for work, and apparently these are the sharpest tactiles you can get. Hard to judge before they're soldered to a board, but I'm not sure. They feel nice, and the bump is very tactile, but it comes right at the top of the switch, which is not what I'm used to. It almost feels like a light, tight, buckling spring, but not necessarily in a good way. Time and proper use will tell, they were cheap enough.

I got my week-end fucked up royally.
The high-ups decided to send some people off to training that's ironically irrelevant to what we do and what we are responsible for. Pretty strong hint we are about to have more responsibilities piled up on us. Besides that, 30% of staff out means quite tight schedule for the remaining peons. To add more insult to that, two of them immediately buggered off far away so that they keep their sweet 4-5 days off whilst the rest endure the increased workload.
Point fucking taken.

I've felt this way for a while. At first it was just garden variety depression I've had my whole life. But the older I get the more I think it's just disillusionment with the world in general.

I don't enjoy a lot of things the way I used to. The longer I spend on the Internet exposed to its petty arguments and uninformed politics, the more I just think everyone is a goddamnit moron. And worst of all I feel like all this negativity ultimately comes from within me, not without.

Oh well.

I think I need to find a new interest. The number of websites I visit is an ever decreasing circle and I seem to be doing it more out of habit than anything else; I feel like I've outgrown a lot of them. Computer games and TV seem to have also lost a lot of their enjoyment and fulfilment.

I reckon I need to try something new to get out of this rut.

Just turned up at my local and came between 3 skinheads having a fight. One was on the floor bleeding from the head and I honestly believe if I wasn't there they would have kicked him unconscious. Everyone else just stared.

Apparently the guy on the floor was a nazi. I honestly have no idea what he said to provoke quite the response though. He eventually ran off and then someone in the crowd jeered at him.
No one around seems to care about the risk I took to keep the peace. Infact the 2 who were kicking the shit out of him immediately got chummy with security after and things returned to normal shortly after. I'm a bit shell shocked, the idea crossed my mind they might get hyped up and turn on me. Weird start to a night when all I really want is an easy lay. Will probably move on once I finish my drink.

At the very least you witnessed that kind of idiocy on the Net. I've seen it irl.
It doesn't really phase me though. Now when someone almost forces me into their petty argument regarding something I either don't care or not informed enough to make an opinion and won't take no for an answer, is wholly another matter.
I somewhat tend to think that your bullshit filtering system tends to get better as you age. The problem here is keeping it sharp and not letting become way too conservative.

> "Feel like utter crap in mind, body and soul. Not even operating at "listen to a podcast in bed" levels today."

Jesus, this could be me. I've survived the last few days through lying in bed and staring, whenever I'm awake, one-eyed at Netflix. Now I'm basically at my wit's end. What was that puerile twitter meme I saw a few months back? "Are we just supposed to drink coffee and listen to podcasts and then die? I'm BORED"? Something like that. As sad as it is, that's basically how I'm feeling. Back to having this great big hole in the middle of my soul and nothing to fill it with. The big black fucking hole that I've spent most of my life shovelling small nations' GDPs worth of drugs and alcohol into. Although these days I'm not supposed to do that any more, instead I'm supposed to do something else, even if I'm buggered as to what exactly is.

What I need to do is sort my head out, get my brain back into my old hobbies, finally flush the mental bitch who can't make up her mind but won't let me move on out of my system, stop hanging out with "good enough for a saturday night, not good enough for a girlfriend" lasses I've been using to kill the pain, and get back out there and back on the path to finding someone I'm actually interested in being with.

Honestly life is so difficult I don't know why I bothered getting clean in the first place.

I had a very long dream this morning, but the most memorable moment of it was when I was a bit rude to Cillian Murphy about Peaky Blinders to which he bluntly and understandably told me "get your pen then". "Good advice" I thought on waking up.

Think he said pen, missed a trick otherwise.

This reminds me of when I lived in Amsterdam and people actually parked on the fucking pavement and you had to walk into the street to get around their fucking cars.

And yes, I did take pictures of the cunts and made a massive blog titled something like "why Amsterdam is a shithole full of cunts and you should never live here".

Sage for ten year old memories.

Also doesn't that mean it was the britfa's 10 year anniversary this year?

I went to an overpriced arcade (because arcades are a retro novelty now rather than just a thing that exists), then went to an overpriced Japanese chain restaurant. Then sat in a car park watching people come out of Lidl and Dominos until nearly midnight.

It was quite a nice change of pace from sitting inside arguing on britfa all day, actually.


There was a thing on the radio a bit ago about pavement parking, and how we've got to do something about it because it's restrictive for disabled access and so on.

Call me cynical but I shall be entirely unsurprised when what we do about it is slapping people with massive fines, instead of actually providing people somewhere to fucking park.

This brings me to one of my pet annoyances about the way we go about achieving change, particularly on the part of government.

Example: You want to reduce car usage and ownership.

You could make car ownership unbearable by way of taxation, duties and traffic control measures, in which case you get some people who have reluctantly switched to public transport and are resentful of it, and others who still own and use their cars and are resentful of it.

Alternatively, you could actively make public transport more desirable, and people will switch to it willingly.

I haven't owned a car in five years because I have a bus stop right outside my flat with four buses an hour into the city centre, and a train station a short walk away with four trains per hour. Both of these services are also better and more reliable now than then. Unfortunately, where my family live public transport has been cut to the bone, and it's no longer viable for me to visit them without hiring a car.

The problem is that cars are too fucking big. I'd say that almost everyone I work with over the age of 40 drives a 4x4. A few of them have those ridiculously large Volvo's that are bigger than the actual parking spaces. If everyone had to drive smaller cars then it wouldn't be as much of an issue.

Over-40s are a waste of space at the best of times, with or without a 4x4.
