The President of the United States is a traitor.

65 million of us warned you.

 
 
 
 

Another day, another flight out of LAX, and another opportunity to experience the objectively inferior new @Delta terminals (2&3). SkyClubs are tiny and crowded.

Still a largely happy @Delta Medallion member, but wish they hadnโ€™t made the move out of Terminal 5.

 

Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City, with fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.

Iโ€™m in Nashville for the weekend. Any @CanesFootball fans around? I want to watch the with some Canes!

 

Iโ€™m at a bar in Nashville and theyโ€™re singing County Roads and Sweet Home Alabama. I just shouted โ€œALEXA PLAY ROCKY TOPโ€ as loud as I could. Didnโ€™t work.

 

This Christmas movie highlights the technological advances of operations at the North Pole, revealing how Santa and his vast army of highly trained elves produce gifts and distribute them around the world in one night. However, every operation has a margin of errorโ€ฆ When one of 600 million children to receive a gift from Santa on Christmas Eve is missed, it is deemed "acceptable" to all but one, Arthur. Arthur Claus is Santaโ€™s misfit son who executes an unauthorized rookie mission to get the last present half way around the globe before dawn on Christmas morning.

Tom Petty:

1. Overrated.
2. Not Alive.

 
 

When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees amongst everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but is a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, he needs Linus' help to learn the meaning of Christmas.

Really enjoying Brianna Privettโ€™s talk at about using @WordPress to own your digital presence. She uses the phrase โ€œdigital legacy,โ€ which I adore! I wonder if @briannaorg knows about the movement?

 

Gave a shout out to in the Q and A for @briannaorgโ€™s talk. Looking forward to inviting more people into the IndieWeb community.

Own your digital legacy ๐Ÿ˜€

 
 
 
 

I think Iโ€™d use the Micro.blog iOS app for status updates exclusively if it supported Micropub syndicate-to. @manton has done a great job making an attractive and functional app! Looking forward to continued evolution.

 
 
 
 

Congrats to @danielpunkass on the launch of the new MarsEdit! Support for Micro.blog is awesome. My request? Support for Micropub! Iโ€™d love to use MarsEdit to write status updates, bookmarks, likes, reposts, photos, and more on my website ๐Ÿ˜€

 
 

People made a bunch of money on Tickle Me Elmo, but that didnโ€™t make it โ€œthe future of currency.โ€ IJS.

 

Can all the people I care about on Twitter please just go ahead and join Micro.blog so I can stop checking Twitter? ๐Ÿ˜œ

 

@manton can has more invite codes?!

 

The first episode of The Grand Tour season two was quite fun! Hopeful that theyโ€™ve started settling into a groove.

 
 
 

Some great memories from my website's "On This Day" feature today โ€“ย https://cleverdevil.io/onthisday/12/08

 

Checked into Manhattan Beach

Holiday Fireworks ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ‡

 
 

Sifting through the notes and videos from Austin, and really wishing I could have attended! Lots of awesome information and details. I'm especially interested in @manton's progress on Micro.blog. โ€“ https://indieweb.org/2017/Austin

 

There are a huge number of things that could take down this POTUS, but I'd sure love it if his assault victims got the privilege.

 

What are people using these days for window management in macOS? I'm still using Slate, which hasn't been updated in years. Are there better alternatives available?

 

It seems like Hammerspoon is a truly amazing solution to replace Slate for macOS window management. Also does a lot more. Fully scriptable with Lua. Diving in!

 

Checked into Disneyland Park

Dinner with the fam.

 
 

Checked into Edwards Brea West 10

DreamHost All Hands

 
 

Thank you, Alabama. We needed that.

 

Join us! You can have anything you want to eat, as long as its sausages, french fries, and beer! ๐ŸŒญ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿบ

I have officially ported my entire Slate configuration over to Hammerspoon. Very easy, and now I'm ready to configure it to do even more. Check it out, macOS power users -- http://www.hammerspoon.org

Checked into Wurstkรผche

IndieWeb Meet-up!

 
 

My first IDE was HyperCard.

 

Checked into Riviera United Methodist Church

Christmas program for Williamโ€™s school.

 

@caseyliss instead of a Wrangler, consider getting a Giulia Ti! We know you love the Quadrifoglio, but trust me, the step down is still a great car. Definitely better than the Wrangler ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Checked into AMC South Bay Galleria 16

The lovely wife let me out of the house!

 

Spoiler-free thoughts on The Last Jedi:
- It will be (deservedly) polarizing for long-time fans.
- The Force Awakens was a tribute (to a fault) to A New Hope. The Last Jedi strikes out on its own, wildly different.
- Can you embrace the new? You'll love it. If not? Uh oh.

 

Checked into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

Off to Orlando to take the kids to Disney World for a few days ๐Ÿ˜œ

 
 
 
 
 
 

Checked into Disney's Hollywood Studios

Made it after some hiccups.

 
 
 
 
 

Checked into Teppan Edo

Ohhhhhh beeeeg waannn!

 

There are reasonable arguments against The Last Jedi, but none of them include โ€œtoo many powerful women.โ€ Such a silly argument.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Congrats @manton! The new Micro.blog updates are fantastic. Huge milestone ๐ŸŽ‰

 

So, if the aliens are real, and they arrive and ask us to take them to our leader... can we just take them to Barack?

 
 

Headed to Kennedy Space Center with the family for the day. Looking forward to sharing the wonder of space travel with the kids, and visiting the Saturn V that my father worked on in college. ๐Ÿš€

 
 
 

Awesome to see you and the fam, @mpirnat! Great reminder of how awesome itโ€™s been to be a part of the Python community. Have fun at Disney ๐Ÿ˜‰

https://twitter.com/mpirnat/status/943903954706067456

 
 
 

The Kennedy Space Center has been a much more special and fun experience than I expected. I got emotional when I saw the space shuttle. For a kid growing up in the 80โ€™s, the shuttle was everything to me. Amazing experience!

 
 

Taking the family to see The Last Jedi this afternoon. My second viewing, their first. This time, Iโ€™ll be better able to soak it all in!

 
 
 
 
 

Back from my second viewing of The Last Jedi. Upon reflection, I love this movie. Itโ€™s definitely not perfect, but itโ€™s a powerful tectonic shift for the Star Wars universe. I think it makes my top three Star Wars films! Maybe top two.

 
 
 
 
 

Himmelfahrt: pronounced โ€œhim-muhl-fart,โ€ is German for the ascension, and directly translates to โ€œdrive to the sky.โ€ ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ’จ

 
 
 

Now that Micro.blog is open, and filling with wonderful people, I think we need to start something like the old school Follow Friday. Micro Mondays? Indie Windsdies?

 

Manton Reece on Twitter: "Great to see all the interest in https://t.co/KrFEuTQtGo today! I’ve bumped up the daily limit on user registrations to let more people in."

 

That thing where you know your flight is destined to be delayed, but the airline still insists it will be on time.

 

Oh, look, our flight is delayed! Who could have possibly predicted this outcome?!

 

My Hammerspoon WiFi Transition configuration worked like a champ the first time! When I connected to `gogoinflight`, it automatically connected to my privacy VPN precisely 100 seconds later. Hammerspoon FTW ๐Ÿ˜€

 

If you're a movie fan, especially if you're a Star Wars fan, I implore you to check out this wonderful piece on how editing saved the original Star Wars. Some truly interesting revelations in here! โ€“ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFMyMxMYDNk

 
 

Good news, weโ€™ve landed at LAX! Bad news, we have to escape LAX! ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿš˜ ๐Ÿš™ ๐Ÿš•๐Ÿšš๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿš’๐ŸšŒ๐ŸšŽ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš๐Ÿš”๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿคฏ

 
 

The Los Angeles Rams have won the NFC West. Amazing! What a turnaround. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ†

 

Just finished making the egg nog and some homemade limoncello. Next, Chinese food, candlelight service, and then playing Santa! Itโ€™s Christmas Eve! ๐ŸŽ„

Chess Pie is ready, six Cornish Hens are in the sous vide cooking, and Iโ€™m relaxing on the couch listening to @ColetteLaCour play with her gifts. โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ‰

 
 

Chess pie. Black coffee. Breakfast of champions! ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅงโ˜•๏ธ

 

Really loving the ever-expanding community of indie bloggers on Micro.blog. It really does feel like the โ€œgood old daysโ€ of Twitter!

 

One thing I loved about the early days of Twitter was the UX innovation from third-party clients like Twitterific and Tweetie. Iโ€™d love to see that happen for Micro.blog, and RSS, JSON Feed, Micropub, Webmention, and other IndieWeb concepts make it entirely possible.

 

I wonder if @manton knows the folks behind Twitterific, Tweetbot, et al? Would be amazing if he could convince them to support Micro.blog.

 

Checked into Temecula Creek Inn

Quick one night trip.

 

Checked into Cork | Fire Kitchen

Dinner. Hopefully ๐Ÿ˜€

 
 
 

Excited to be taking @cleverangel to see Hamilton (again) in San Diego for her Christmas present. Suite booked at the US Grant Hotel and reservations for amazing dinner beforehand! I think I nailed this Christmas ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Checked into Riviera Barber Shop

Crowded, but weโ€™re overdue!

 
 

Was about to give up on my Osaka stainless steel coffee filter, which was so clogged that it was ruining my pour over brews. Turns out, a good soak in diluted vinegar and dish soap cleared it right up! Good as new. โ˜•๏ธ

 
 
 

Bowl season is so much fun. High scoring, crazy games between teams that rarely play each other. Love it. ๐Ÿˆ

 

aTm should get used to losing to ACC teams in heartbreaking fashion. After all, Jimbo is an expert at it.

 
 
 

To celebrate the Orange Bowl, I just made myself a half pitcher of whiskey sours. Hope my โ€˜Canes close the season strong! ๐Ÿฅƒ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿˆ

 
 

Oh yeah! Ron Dayne! Remember when he stole Joe Hamiltonโ€™s heisman trophy?

 

Wisconsin is currently the better team. I strongly believe that Miami's got the brighter future. Two missed FGs, some awful officiating, and a rash of injuries, and we were in it until the end.

 

Iโ€™ve heard people whine about Canto Bight, and this is a great thread on why itโ€™s important. Not every part of a movie has to advance the plot! Some parts exist to advance and develop the *characters*.
