My response to this challenge is the same as the one to the cold shower challenge. I always take a cold shower. Every day. Forever.

I always use the command line only unless utterly impossible. Every day. Forever.

Browsers are were this falls apart. I'm using qutebrowser, which is kinda close, but it isn't a CLI browser. Most websites are incompatible with CLI browsers, so that's not going to work. I'm also still using a GUI music player and email client. The former because it JustWorks™, but I'm planning on replacing it with mpd and ncmpcpp or whatever it was called. The latter because it JustWorks™ and I'm using it so rarely that it frankly doesn't matter.

I'm doing most of my image manipulation from the cli, though. I also use a script to crawl Youtube for me, so I don't have to actually visit youtube anymore. Newsboat (RSS reader) to "subscribe" to channels and the script to search for videos. Works pretty good.

The reason I mostly use the CLI is because it is more convenient.

Good read.

I don't have the problem. I'm kind of a hoarder, but I hate spending money, so each purchase I make gets vetted intensely and I take months, sometimes years between "I need that" and "I bought it". Stuff I want, but do not need, I won't even think about buying. If I don't need it, I won't spend money on it.

So I still have a laptop from the 1990s, but I only have three laptops in total.

If I didn't passionately hate spending money for myself I would probably be very cluttered, too. When giving gifts on the other hand, I am not stingy at all.

But even as a kid I hated parting with stuff I owned. Tech or none tech. Not sure why I have such a hard time letting go of stuff I don't actually need anymore.
