It's Spice Week, and Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith task contestants with a teatime favourite Signature. The Technical means the bakers are tested with a tricky Arabian pastry. And, finally, they take on a fiddly Showstopper that promises to be anything but light work.

A huge congratulations to @GetSource, who I had the absolute pleasure of working with for 6+ years. Great hire for @GoDaddy. I hope you get a chance to work on features for @WordPress! Best of luck. I'm sure you'll knock it out of the park. πŸ˜€

Bloomberg has the tech story of the decade. My goodness! If accurate, the implications are staggering.

 
 

Yes! People, please create blogs instead of just Twitter threads. They're so much more enjoyable to read.

Checked into Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles

Company event with super fast awesome cars!

 

I’m always nervous before Miami-FSU games. Always. My β€˜Canes are favored by two TDS, are at home in one of the loudest stadiums in the country, and on paper this shouldn’t be close. Go β€˜Canes! Beat FSU like a drum!🀞🏻 πŸ™ŒπŸ» 🏈

 
 
 
 

Checked into Torrance Memorial Medical Center

Emergency room with William. Poor guy got a gash above his eye and needs stitches. ❀️

 

Checked into Five Guys

After the boy gets his stitches, he gets a hot dog with bacon! 🌭 πŸ₯“

 

Little William had a spill tonight while playing at the neighbors house, and is now the proud owner of four stitches just above his left eye. There was a lot of blood, but he was so brave! ❀️

 
 

I recently switched to using Firefox and Safari at the same time, with Firefox being used for my work, and Safari for personal. I'm using the excellent Choosy to automatically route links to the correct browser – https://www.choosyosx.com

 

Great pro-tip: you can use Choosy to automatically route YouTube links to open in VLC, and never see a YouTube ad again!

 

Instagram is now gone from my devices forever. Buh-bye.

Touch / laptop hybrid devices are very likely to replace traditional laptops as primary computing devices. It is awesome to see Microsoft, Google, and Apple all throwing themselves at the problem fully. Competition breeds innovation and better products.

Up early for a flight to Seattle. Big announcement today!

I still have my tickets from the game at the Orange Bowl. I attended with my late grandfather, and will never forget the experience! Hoping to frame all of this eventually.

 

Checked into Maude

Birthday dinner!

 

Checked into maude wine loft

Not yet! I have found the Drafts documentation and interface confusing, so for now I still use an action to convert the markdown to rich text and then copy/paste into my posting interface. I’d love to get something more polished, just haven’t had time!

 

Finally received my Apple Watch Series 4 on my birthday! Having a hard time configuring a watch face that suits me. Someone needs to make a digital time complication for Infograph!

 
 

Georgia Tech has looked so sloppy all football season. Poor execution, fumbles, broken coverages. Just bad all around. Coach Johnson is such a good fit for the program in so many ways, but not sure he survives much longer. 🏈

 

Checked into Terranea Resort

Birthday brunch and spa day in paradise.

 

Checked into Nelson's

Brunchy brunch brunch.

 

After some truly awful football yesterday, my wife saved the day with a surprise trip to a hotel in Long Beach and dinner with wonderful friends. Today, brunch and then spa day at Terranea, our favorite local resort.

 

Checked into The Boy & The Bear - Coffee Roastery

Quick coffee on the way into the office...

 
 
 
 
 

Finally made a functioning Micropub action for @DraftsApp. Needs some tweaking, but I should be able to share soon.

 
 

I have shared my Micropub action for @DraftsApp to the actions directory – https://actions.getdrafts.com/a/1QC

 
 
 
 
 

This is both really smart and totally bonkers. Thanks a lot, JavaScript!

Oh, thank you so much Purdue.

 

Had a good conversation with a dear friend yesterday. I explained I wouldn’t let my daughter install Facebook Messenger for Kids on her device to communicate with her daughter. The app is insidious. Addicting children to a toxic platform from a morally bankrupt biz.

 

The Rams are so much fun to watch, on both sides of the football. πŸˆπŸ‘

 

Signed up for gigabit internet service, finally. Installation by end of month! A bit disappointing that the upstream is only 35 Mbps, but honestly, gigabit downstream makes me feel like I'm living in the gosh-darned future.

 

Haha, so very true! I am spoiled. I do have some use cases for faster than 35 Mbps upstream, notably remote access to my Plex server when on the road, and I want to Direct Play full-quality Blu-Ray. That said, I have a cloud-hosted Plex server for that anyway.

 

Extremely disappointed in the behavior of the SQLite leadership with regard to Code of Conduct. Tone deaf, insensitive, and unproductive. The good news is that recent developments with Linus Torvalds show that nearly every person can grow/change with continued pressure.

 

It really is pretty sad and shameful. Such a missed opportunity, too. I must say, I've been so impressed with how the Indieweb community has been explaining the need for CoCs on the wiki, including responses for common objections, questions, and more. https://indieweb.org/code-of-conduct-why

 

Replied to a post on seblog.nl :

Awesome post! I'd love to see some of your suggestions implemented within Together, specifically on the graph-based side. I continue to believe that the most critical problem to solve to drive Indieweb adoption is a unified experience for reading, interacting, and publishing. Pull requests are welcome! We definitely need more smart people working on Together :)

 
 
 
 
 

I love my iPhone XS, but I still hate the way that it sits on a table because of the camera bump. I don’t want a case. Someone should make attractive adhesive levelers!
