    Never go to Boston

    Boston's great! I got Boston travel down pretty good -- you park at the end of a train line like Oak Grove or Alewife and take the T in. It's never let me down.

    what's great is that the file system was a perfect solution to the problem of managing files and organizing serious work on a computing device. it remains the only reasonable tool for doing so. tablets and mobile devices hid the concept as long as they could but as app interoperability becomes more important and people do more real work on devices, they are having to expose or reinvent it.

    and people are just as fucking knuckle-dragging thick about it as they always have been, so it's only a matter of time before some tech company disrupts by making yet another class of less capable, easy to use device that can get away with not having an exposed file system or multitasking, or any of the stuff that confuses people
    I'm hoping for a robust auto-tagging system that works for all files that can also take custom tags. Both Windows and MacOS have some of these features, but they don't work well enough for my purposes AFAIK.

    Something I found even more infuriating than trying to find vintage pornography on a mac was trying to find a fucking file I downloaded on my Android, because that folder mgmt system feels completely siloed on each app, which creates a sub-sub-sub folder amongst a wasteland of otherwise-empty folders

    Looking at transportation options for PAX South and it is not ideal. It's a five hour drive but that sucks and I'd have to pay for my car's parking so I'm trying to look at alternatives that don't involve flying and why is there no bus that leaves at like, 10 and arrive at 7? No it's either leave in the early afternoon and get there in the dead of night or leave at the crack of dawn. And then there's Amtrak which takes 13 HOURS to get from Longview to San Antonio.

    rent a small plane and fly yourself there

    pros:
    1) relatively short travel time
    2) you'll arrive in style
    3) no traffic

    cons:
    1) a bit expensive
    2) rental company might need you to demonstrate that you actually know how to fly a plane, which means spending more $ on lessons

    Hah, yea, I'm bad enough on regular planes and worse on small planes that my boss has us fly in for store trips. Flying one? I'd be a crater/footnote on the evening news

    Who are the NYC chatters again? I'm getting distraught trying to figure out where to park in Manhattan. Or like, should I park outside Manhattan and take a train in?

    Bring $40 and pay for a whole day parking spot in a garage.

    it's $50/day minimum in Chicago I would think Manhattan would be even more

    Thanks, yeah, I've been trying to get an estimate and some garages quote $175 for the three days we'll be there. That's what makes me think parking outside the city and taking public transport in must be cheaper, but I'm not sure where to go.

    where are you coming from?

    Driving down from New Hampshire -- map says to take I-95 south pretty much the whole way.

    Edit: JK I start and end on 95, but take other stuff on the way: I-95 S. Take I-495 S, I-290 W, I-90 W, I-84...

    Park in Boston and take the amtrak down

    Serious advice: avoiding the stretch of 95 between Hartford and Stamford is almost guaranteed to be a good mental-health decision.

    There are two systems that I think people handle well, one that gets used incredibly often and one that I would like to see more of:
    (1) Search - just type in words relating to the thing you want and the system finds it for you, this is incredibly effective and almost always preferable when the search is good. When I am working on a big project I don't want to look through the files I want to type a word and get the thing I was looking for.

    (2) Spatial Analogy - People's brains are oriented to remember things as existing in a space that they can have an internal map of. The memory palace is an incredibly effective method of memorization. I think file systems are really so successful simply because they have that sense of existing in a space where you can look in a place for a particular thing. I think this analogy could be taken a lot further, though, and interfaces could be better organized around this idea of being a map of things in virtual space (ideally while remaining simplistic and not being over-wrought).

    You are very unlikely to be locked out, just go over to bungie.net and login to something and see what you need to do. It was very painless for me. Also they make it pretty easy to play with your friends?

    Classic MacOS went hard on the spatial model and I think it worked ok for some people, but the downside was that it was a little clumsy and ugly, just like most people's actual desktops. I think they started to lose people in the OS X era with shit like smart folders, defaulting to list view, breaking up the hierarchy with virtual locations, and eventually abandoning the Desktop as root concept entirely for the more abstract "favorites" type model they have today.

    Sure it looks cleaner but nobody fkin knows how to navigate it because it's so abstract.

    regardless, a ton of people never understood this iteration of an uncompromising (but messy) physical model in the first place. so I wouldn't be so sure it would work.

    Depends on time of day.

    If you're coming in during the morning or evening then you'll be on the FDR for about 45 minutes probably. If you show up in the afternoon closer to 20-30 min. Coming out is the same. It's not usually horrific.

    It's not a horrendous price or anything for parking.

    But that doesn't matter to a certain breed of Twitter/Tumblr user, who believes that bad words are bad regardless of context, and even talking about the slur is just as bad as calling somebody the slur
