Our weekly delivery from Imperfect Foods included some fairly below average pears. Tonight, I sliced one up and tossed it into a tumbler of Makers Mark. Now, they’re the best pears in history. 🥃 🍐 🎉

 

I really enjoyed the first season of Mythic Quest on Apple TV+, and the special quarantine episode that just dropped was excellent. Looking forward to more!

 

Seriously, though, does anyone have a good block list for Pi-Hole for all Facebook properties? Ideally, something that is maintained and kept up-to-date?

 

Cool, so its time to block giphy's domains completely from my network using my Pi-Hole. Got it.

 

In other news, Miami was robbed of the title in 2002, but y’all already know that, right?

 

Inspired by the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen, I’m making cured egg yolks tonight, seasoned with red pepper flakes, bay leaf, and cardamom.

With the leftover egg whites, I’m baking keto merengues flavored with vanilla, orange peel, and orange bitters.

 

Installed some HomeKit-compatible automatic blinds from IKEA today. They work fantastically well and look really nice, too. The installation process was easy, but the configuration was a bit of a nightmare. Still, recommended!

 

In my quest for better video conference quality, I discovered a way to use my iPhone 11 Pro as a webcam. The quality is way better than my existing Logitech. Still some tweaking to do, but very promising.

 

Are you a @geteero user interested in using Pi Hole to provide network-level ad blocking? Some lessons from me:

1. Disable all Eero Secure features.
2. Disable HomeKit support in the Eero app.
3. Disable Local DNS Cache.

I also recommend reserving IP addresses for all your clients, and specifying hostnames in your Pi Hole’s /etc/hosts.

 

I have successfully installed and configured pi-hole 5.0 beta on my Synology in a docker container. Bye, bye Eero ad blocking.

Per-client blocklists work great, but I still wish I could pick per-client upstream DNS.

 

I’m interested in improving the image quality for my video calls. Sadly, no one seems to make a truly high-end webcam. The alternative seems to be mirrorless cameras and HDMI capture devices. Am I missing something?

 

My favorite thing about this season of Top Chef is just how wonderfully likable the chefs are. I find myself cheering for each of them as they step up to the judge’s table.

Well, except for Mularkey.

 

Well, I’ve gone from being a big fan of Tesla with a deposit on a vehicle to “what the hell is wrong with Elon?!”

I just can’t be a Tesla customer now.

 

Product idea: governance for slide decks.

The amount of time I spend de-uglifying, fixing fonts, and properly aligning things in Google Slides is painful.

 

A few days in with the Magic Keyboard and its making me want to upgrade to the 12.9” iPad Pro from the 11” ... stay strong, Jonathan!

 

Anyone know of an app for iOS / iPad OS that provides “Today” widgets for HomeKit? I’d like to show the current status of specific devices, and be able to interact with them from my home screen.

 

I've delivered four presos / live Q&As on @awscloud cost optimization in the past two weeks, and demand isn't slowing. Businesses are really feeling the pressure. Happy to be in a position to be able to help!

 

Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro review:

• Keyboard is better than the one on my 2017 MBP.
• Heavy. Too heavy.
• Trackpad is amazing, but too small.
• I’ll miss being able to fold the keyboard behind the iPad.
• Less than half the price of four iMac Pro wheels!

3/5 ⭐️

 

Hmm... I can’t seem to get my patched “nerd font” working on iPadOS... has anyone managed to get one working? I am using the same OTF file that I use on macOS, installed in iPadOS via AnyFont.

So good it’s almost hard to believe a team like this will ever exist again.
