Janet is the best character in The Good Place. I will fight you if you disagree.

 

Outdoor screening of Wreck it Ralph in our front yard by the fire pit! Pizza, margaritas, neighbors, and fun. Can’t beat LA πŸ˜€

 

So, yeah, check out Two Dads Talking! Our site is https://twodads.fm and I’ve written an intro to the podcast here - https://cleverdevil.io/2018/new-podcast-two-dads-talking

 

Just upgraded my podcasting gear: Shure 87A, scissor arm with shock mount, pop filter, and Tascam US-2x2 XLR interface. Yes, there are reasons...

 

Drinking pot likker out of a steel camping mug like a real southerner.

 

Recently started using iCloud shared photo albums for privately sharing pictures with my extended family. You get sharing, commenting, likes, and more. Still a walled garden, but at least Apple cares about privacy.

 

Facebook continues to be an utter disaster for the world. I deleted my Facebook account because I don't want to be a part of the problem. You know what? It feels great! Drop them like a bad habit!

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!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

"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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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

 

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 ❀️

 

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

 

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