The world is in chaos, but at least we get to watch humans safely get thrown into space. 🚀💫
I can’t find any of the privacy / terms for YouTube TV on the subject. Will they sell my personal data or viewing habits to advertisers or third parties?
Looked at my Hulu bill again. I am seriously considering YouTube TV. Hulu is $21/month more and has had terrible video quality / reliability for me lately. Worried about privacy though...
This season of Top Chef is so my jam. After tonight’s elimination, I absolutely love every remaining chef. Each of them would deserve to win it all.
Pork shoulder is resting. Lacey is making deviled eggs. I’m drinking a blended cocktail and watching Good Eats on TV. I’ve needed this break.
Meat’s ready! Also, I just remembered that I had set up a home automation to play Journey’s “Any Way You Want It” on the HomePod when the meat reaches target temperature. 🤣🎸🥳⭐️
I admit it, I am getting impatient and wrapped the currently cooking pork shoulder in foil to power through the stall. That said, in my experience, capturing that moisture and encouraging it to reabsorb into the meat is wise anyway. #TheCrutch 🐷🔥
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. #FacebookSucks
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.
Ed Reed. Andre Johnson. Clinton Portis. Jeremy Shockey. Ken Dorsey. Bryant McKinney. Willis McGahee. Frank Gore. Jonathan Vilma. DJ Williams. Najeh Davenport. Antrel Rolle. Sean Taylor. Roscoe Parrish. Vince Wilfork. So good it’s almost hard to believe a team like this will ever exist again.
If you’re missing sports, you can tune into the ACC Network right now to watch the greatest college football team in history beat the snot out of Nebraska for the 2001 title in the Rose Bowl. 🏈 🙌🏻 🌹
I feel your pain. It does get better as you get used to it!
Having a lot of fun on Zoom with my friend Andy, showing off IndieWeb!
The worst part is that I have no viable option to replace my laptop, because Apple has a gaping hole in the middle of the lineup. The new 16" MBP looks great, but is far too big. The MacBook Air is underpowered for me. The 13" MBP hasn't been updated yet. Sigh.
My 2017 13" MacBook Pro is really not working well for me anymore. Its becoming clear that a 3.1 GHz i5 and 16 GB of RAM is insufficient for my day-to-day. This is partially due to the fact that all computers now have 78 instances of Chromium running...
I'm seeing a real problem with dangerous and misleading content that has been de-platformed (from, say, Medium) getting traction and going viral with links to @internetarchive. This seems like something they should address.
Thank God for the Bob Appetit Test Kitchen on YouTube. Hours of entertainment.
No *you’re* crying during the Schitt’s Creek finale. #DavidAndPatrickForever
I’ve named my digital sign for notifying my family of my work status (Do Not Disturb, Quiet Please, and Available) the “Daddyboard.” Today, I also spent a little time integrating it with Hammerspoon, so I can switch statuses with keyboard shortcuts. Lua FTW!
I also fully endorse this promising project.
Set up the tent in the back yard for some “glamping” with the kiddos tonight. We are watching a movie using the projector, and snuggling up. 🏕🎥
Here are the details! https://cleverdevil.io/2020/hey-siri-dont-bother-daddy
I now have a battery-powered, Wi-Fi connected, Siri-enabled digital status sign on my office door. I'll post some pictures, videos, and details later, but its pretty awesome to be able to say "Hey Siri, don't bother daddy!" 🙅🏻‍♂️
