whaack: diana_coman: EOD report: Today was a regression in terms of discipline. I did chores slowly and was overall distracted throughout the day. I also sinned and played guitar for 45 mins without having deserved it. What I got done was an article on the ordered computer parts + following up with cococo to make sure they were delivering my items. (The UPS and monitor should be here by Monday.) I also read the two trilema articles on [htt
whaack: p://trilema.com/2017/re-reading-is-the-most-powerful-tool/][rereading] and the bicameral world at least twice each. Unsurprisingly I still need to spend more time to digest them. The main task that I flopped on was completing a rough draft of An Outpost of Progress. I sta
whaack: rted editing something that I had already written, but it was clear looking at my output that my writing was school-like in that it didn't add a unique insight/perspective. The article in its current state is not too much more than me paraphrasing/plot summarizing Conrad. The other incomplete assignment I was supposed to do today was to read 30 pages of The Odyssey, I will make a small dent into that now before I go to bed.

ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-29 20:49:54 jfw: diana_coman: the widget filtering part of http://ossasepia.com/2019/11/29/comments-filtering-for-mp-wp/ works for me, ty. Do you know if pingbacks are still supposed to be in the comments RSS? I recall some mention of this but can't seem to find it.
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-11-01 mircea_popescu: anyways -- i dun think a blog should list pingbacks either in the comment rss or in the "new comments" navbar.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-29#1011662 - I like it better too!
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-29 21:16:32 jfw: ahh my blog looks so much nicer now. Main thing still missing afaik is titles-only archive.
diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-29#1011671 - this.

diana_coman: whaack: admitting is fine but not enough; why did you let it happen and what are you going to do so it doesn't continue?
diana_coman: dorion_road: enjoy the festivities, it's weekend anyway.
whaack: diana_coman: I am not quite sure why I let myself lose focus. It's not as clear cut as the problem ~2 weeks ago where I had avoidance activities that were massive time sinks. That said, there is a bad habit I have ongoing that I nipped. The bad habit is listening to music with headphones while I do chores such as cooking. It's a bad habit because it prevents thinking during valuable free minutes. Another problem was that I started
whaack: the day late. If you index my awake hours from hour 0 to hour 15 then my peak brain activity is during hour 1 to hour 7. Yesterday I didn't take full advantage of those morning hours and did most of my work in the evening.
diana_coman: whaack: there's music and music really - some more helpful for thinking and some less so really but at any rate... even cooking requires thinking, lolz.
diana_coman: whaack: note also that if you give in to old patterns, you'll just get back to them, it's how it works.
whaack: diana_coman: yes the music was of the less thinking variety, also listening to music via headphones rather than speakers is much more mind-numbing.
whaack: diana_coman: I know that giving in to old patterns means I'll get back to them. But I don't know of a concrete 'old pattern' I am getting back into in this case other than a very general 'not-focused' pattern.
diana_coman: whaack: well, for starters the "work in the evening"; for the other, the mind-numbing really.
diana_coman: what does it tell you so terrible that you'd rather shut it down, anyway?
diana_coman: whaack: maybe meditate on that some more and filter out the answer in essay/article form at some point; meanwhile it's the question to ask whenever drawn towards "shut down, mind".
whaack: diana_coman: I haven't though about participating in my mind-numbing activities from the perspective of that question. But the question made me think of something I will pgp you.
diana_coman: whaack: all right.
whaack: diana_coman: http://paste.deedbot.org/?id=diZ8
diana_coman: whaack: got that & I'll look at it later today.
whaack: diana_coman: ok ty.
diana_coman: whaack: there is very little one can be totally sure to rely on; but the contrast does raise some questions.
jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-30#1011685 - good to hear.

jfw: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-30#1011687 - then thanks both for clearing that up. So he was quite serious but I misinterpreted. /me adds to his MP reading luby codex

diana_coman: jfw: heh, it takes some time to adjust, yes.
diana_coman: possibly raleigh might help :P
jfw: if only he were on irc!
diana_coman: jfw: ahaha; you know, his deeds record doesn't sound all that helpful but feel free to... invite? lolz
jfw: oh, http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-30#1011682 - I meant the comments rss feed as opposed to the sidebar, and that was the ref I was remembering, yes. It does look to me like MP was talking about both though.
ossabot: Logged on 2019-11-30 04:36:50 diana_coman: http://logs.ossasepia.com/log/ossasepia/2019-11-29#1011661 - if you mean the blog's own list in there, not really; onth I personally prefer that feedbot tells me about pingbacks too so I'd filter them for blog-publishing but not entirely out of the feed as such.
diana_coman: yes, I think he means both (ie he thinks trackbacks should not be in the comments rss feed either).
diana_coman: hm, might as well clarify this, why not; let's see.
jfw: no disagreement with your points there, ftr. It does make for a bit of pressure when referencing - "I might be broadcasting to everyone who follows this blog" - but I suppose that's proper
diana_coman: jfw: why pressure though?
diana_coman: ie yes, it might get broadcasted to all those that follow the blog you reference but...why is that adding pressure?
jfw: hm, not sure 'why' really
diana_coman: :)
jfw: worst that happens is you find out you were being dumb, and what's so bad about that, right?
diana_coman: jfw: well, even before that really; once you publish it, it's public; what difference does it make how many you specifically broadcast to?
diana_coman: ie you seem to latch there on to a false shade of sorts or dunno
diana_coman: other than that sure, the *best* that can happen is you find out *how* and *where* you were being dumb.
jfw: right.
diana_coman: jfw: you know, the first time I ever wrote an academic article to actually publish, I did as best I knew how and then sent it - as one is supposed to - to my supervisor for a revision; he came back with "it's very good"; I was too stunned to swear on the spot (hence, I still got to finish my PhD degree in the end I suppose but still).
jfw: you were expecting more criticism?
diana_coman: jfw: I was expecting some help which yes, had to be criticism; and no, it was simply not possible that it was "good" like that, there is no such thing in the given circumstances.
diana_coman: sure, it could have sucked even more, absolutely.
jfw: ahh I see, an empty thumbsup treatment.
diana_coman: yes; the easiest and least helpful thing ever; see also the mandatory reading re feedback in general because it's the same thing really.
jfw: as was just in the other log too, heh
ossabot: (trilema) 2019-11-30 mircea_popescu: dunning kruger, rite.
jfw: Gotta run shortly but will add recursing to d-k recursion to re-reading queue.
diana_coman: as it happens, yes.
