Watching Stranger Things season two with the dogs, and Nelson has the farts. I hate to admit it, but it really adds to the experience.

 

Good news: my iPhone X shipped, two weeks early!
Bad news: it arrives the day I leave for Australia for a week.

Watched Cars 3

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racingโ€™s biggest stage!

Headed off to Disneyland with the family for the day. Our au pair Camille is going back to France on Monday, so we are treating her and our new au pair Nikola to a day of fun! Looking forward to trying out my iPhone X camera at the park ๐Ÿ˜€

Downey Fiat

More test driving.

 

Just test drove an Alfa Romeo Giulia and came away impressed. Handles beautifully. Very good looking. Aggressively priced compared to its competition. Now, off to try a few more cars!

 

We are perilously close to it being a perfect football day. Come on, โ€˜Canes, make my day! Oh, and congrats on being ACC Coastal champs ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I havenโ€™t been this amped for a game in years. Honest to goodness freaking out. I want this win so, so badly.

 

My favorite college football memory is attending the 1989 Miami vs. Notre Dame game in the Orange Bowl w/ my Grandfather. A victory that lead to Miamiโ€™s national champ, and revenge for a bogus loss in โ€˜88. Remember: God made Notre Dame #1. Miami made them #2.

 
 

Turnover chains for everyone!

 

We are all drunk Cuban people tonight. Every last one of us.

 
 

I am so happy right now! So happy!!!

Iโ€™ve had quite a lovely long weekend. Disneyland with the family, test driving cars, GT finally puts together a complete game, Miami dominates the Irish, Rams game with the boy, and I even had a chance to cook. Blessings abound.

 

On the subject of cars, I am pretty sure Iโ€™m going to end up with an Alfa Romeo Giulia. Beautiful car, 280hp, handles like a dream. Fingers crossed I can negotiate a great deal!

Apple's new ad for the iPad Pro is pure genius

Many techies I know will lament the message as a diminishing of curiosity for computing, but I think the continuing push of personal computing devices into the hands of more and more people will drive additional curiosity, creating a whole new generation of technologists.

What is everyone using on iOS for MFA? I've been using Google Authenticator and sort of hate it. Taking recommendations!

 

I heard a lot of suggestions from people for 1Password as an MFA solution. Honestly, I rarely use 1Password anymore thanks to iCloud Keychain and its tight integration with iOS and Safari.
