November, 2018

 
 

I have just been surprised with a trip to see Jerry Seinfeld at Pantages by my lovely wife. So excited! 🎭 πŸ˜† 🎀

 
 
 

Checked into Pantages Theatre

Surprise! I’m so excited :)

 
 
 

Feeling a bit under the weather today, but it did give me a chance to fill out my vote by mail ballot. Cautiously optimistic that we will see a big shift left next week. πŸŒŠπŸ—³πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

 
 

Watched Incredibles 2

Elastigirl springs into action to save the day, while Mr. Incredible faces his greatest challenge yet – taking care of the problems of his three children.

Watched on Jonathan

 
 
 

Checked into AMC Del Amo 18

Date night with Colette

 

Took Colette on a little date tonight. We saw Smallfoot, which was a really cute movie, and then went to fancy dinner outdoors next to a fire pit, and finally to a cupcake cafe. Fun ❀️

 

As we get closer to Election Day, my stress level is continuing to rise. I’m not sure how much more bad news I can take on the politics front. Tomorrow we discover if we’ve hit rock bottom, or if our descent continues. Praying for change. πŸ™ πŸ—³

 

Consensus from the 2018 iPad Pro reviews seems to be that the hardware is amazing, but that iOS continues to be too limited. That seems fair, and I expect iOS 13 to be the release where that changes. The gap is smaller than you think.

 

iOS 13 should enable USB-C storage and make Safari a desktop-class browser. That would be the bare minimum to close the gap! Dream scenario would include pointing device support, a home screen rethink, and system-wide multi-display support.

 

By the way, I think the reason that reviewers sound exasperated when reviewing the new iPad Pro is because the gap is so infuriatingly small and seemingly easy to close. USB storage and some improvements to Safari, and *bang*, you're there for most.

 

Extremely tempted to create an email filter that sends any email with the word "blockchain" to spam. It's not that blockchain isn't interesting, its that the space is overwhelmingly dominated by hucksters, con-men, and snake-oil salesmen.

 
 
 

"As WordPress continues its move toward becoming SquareSpace, Micro.blog just keeps becoming a better blogging platform." – Jack Baty on Micro.blog couldn't be more right! I'm increasingly recommending Micro.blog over WordPress for bloggers.

 

A few years ago, I bought an inexpensive, battery-powered projector. It has been awesome to use with the kids on trips and in our yard to watch movies by the fire pit. I'm excited about Anker's new Capsule II to replace it! – https://b431119b.kckb.st

 
 

Enjoyed lunch today at the new Little Sister location in my neighborhood. Delicious! Dumplings, rice, noodles, and more. 🍚 🍲 πŸ₯Ÿ

 
 
 

Whipped up a little project that generates an `h-feed` (parseable, simple HTML) from any Instagram timeline (including private accounts you follow). Feel free to check it out! https://github.com/cleverdevil/feedstagram

 

Pro tip: enable "type to Siri" in your macOS Accessibility Settings and assign Siri a keyboard shortcut (mine is holding down ⌘Space). Siri makes a much better CLI than a voice assistant!

 

🀯 zOMG, now I want an iPad Pro even more! My goodness...
