Weather throughout the southeast is creating absolute havoc with air travel today. Multi-hour delays and a very late flight back home for me. At least I seem to have been upgraded!

 

At a hotel in Orlando watching a show called โ€œLone Star Lawโ€ on Animal Planet with my wife while the kids put themselves to bed.

 

Kudos to my friends at @DreamHost for updating their Twitter profile with a pride-inspired logo for pride month. โœŠ๐Ÿป๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

 

Nextdoor is a great social media network that helps you learn that the toxic, broken, bigoted world of global social media is *also* replicated at the *local* level, right in your own neighborhood! Three cheers for technology, folks.

 

Taxis are officially superior to ride sharing services again. They are often faster, the drivers are more professional, and they usually know where they are going.

 

@aaronpk years ago, I wrote a little script that automatically converted a Keynote deck into individual PDF files (one per slide, vector, scalable) and then created a PPTX file out of the result. Not editable, obviously, but a nice shortcut. Sadly, I canโ€™t find the script anymore!

 

The USWNT are the Miami Hurricanes of womenโ€™s soccer. Run up the score, ladies! Enjoy the ride! โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

 

Okay, I have a first pass of a working Shortcut for that YouTube automation โ€“ https://cleverdevil.io/s/Movie-2019-06-10-19-14.mov โ€“ย Not foolproof, and requires https://opener.link ... still, a promising start.

 

Hey, iOS automation geeks, I have a project for us. I want a Shortcut that will find all YouTube videos embedded in the current open Safari tab, show the URLs in a list, and then open the tapped URL in VLC or other non-YouTube video player app.

 

A couple of points on Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge:

1. It is incredibly immersive. You honestly feel like you're on another planet.
2. The ride is amazing. I piloted the Millennium Falcon!
3. Blue milk is gross.

A truly awesome experience! Go!

 

I had an extremely productive Saturday, which is precisely the type of Saturday I generally like to avoid.

 

Just visited IKEA on a Saturday afternoon and:

1. They had everything I needed in stock.
2. I was able to fit it all in the car.
3. It took less than 30 minutes.

 

Got a haircut this afternoon and Iโ€™m now so handsome that I can be classified as a weapon. Look out.

 

Pronouncing โ€œfajitasโ€ as โ€œfuh-ji-tusโ€ is a personal favorite Dad joke.

 

Another episode of Two Dads Talking should be on the way tomorrow. Long overdue, but its a good one folks!

 

It is increasingly clear to me that YouTube is a negative force in the world. My kids are both hooked on YouTube, but their inability to properly police their platform has already forced me to remove the app from their devices. There needs to be a better alternative.

 

Another question: can fonts be installed in iOS and iPadOS from traditional TTF/OTF files?

 

Very interested in the automations capability available in Shortcuts in iOS 13, but I need to see some docs and more details. Imagine being able to automatically trigger a Shortcut every day at a specific time, when you join specific Wi-Fi networks, etc.

 

Been an extremely busy day, so I havenโ€™t had a chance to fully stay up-to-date with , but from my early reading, I am extremely excited.

 

In flight headed back home after a great week in Chicago. Iโ€™m simultaneously energized and exhausted! Looking forward to a nice weekend with the family.
