Yes, I’ll shave the ‘stache. It looks ridiculous and I only did it for fun.
So, I got Colette, my 10yo daughter, her first mechanical keyboard today. She’s so excited and I’m so proud! Looking forward to keycap hunting with her 😍
After some hiccups, the emulation PC is starting to shape up! 4TB of storage in a RAID1 array, AMD 4750g APU, 16 GB of RAM, and an internal 256GB SSD. Notably, Cemu seems to run really well. Looking forward to cheating in Breath of the Wild 😜
I'm finally all caught up on For All Mankind. I really enjoyed season two, but I have to admit that the fates and paths of some of my favorite characters was quite a letdown. Still, it's a fantastic show and I definitely recommend it.
Earlier tonight, I put some boneless short ribs into a sous vide bath for a 48 hour soak. I think it’s time to put myself in a one hour hot tub soak. Seems fair. #NightTubbin
My new emulation PC arrived today and I still have no idea how anyone can use Windows on a daily basis. It’s like a seven layer burrito dip of legacy. You’re always one or two clicks away from Windows 95.
For the flight home, I am thinking about watching Nomadland, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. Worth it?
Finally got around to watching Jojo Rabbit on my flight today. Taika Waititi is a genius. Hilarious, beautiful, heart-wrenching, and triumphant all at the same time. If you haven’t yet seen it, I’d encourage you change that soon!
We’ve been working our way through For All Mankind, and it’s a fantastic show. Season two has been incredibly strong. If you haven’t given it a chance, I highly recommend it.
I ordered a mini PC with a Ryzen 4750G APU in it three weeks ago to be my new emulation box, and it hasn't shipped yet. These Ryzen APUs are hard to come by, largely due to the strong integrated GPU, and the discrete GPU shortage. Thanks for nothing, crypto-jerks. 👾🕹️
We said goodbye to my last remaining grandparent this morning. She transitioned peacefully to her new home. I’m thankful for the wonderful blessing she was in my life. Rest well, Nonna. I love you so much. Give Billy a huge hug for me. 🙏🏼💕
So, I bought a hot tub like an old person. It’s good to be old.
Finally getting around to watching “For All Mankind” on Apple TV+. We are about halfway through the first season and it’s so much better than I expected. Highly recommended!
What a challenging, hectic, and satisfying week this has been. Scaling a business with triple digit growth is a unique experience, but when you make it work, it’s truly incredible.
Fine, build me a Matrioshka Brain and you can mint all the NFTs you want.
I just uttered the statement “I have a flask pocket in these sweatpants,” and that’s pretty much the most quarantine thing I’ve ever said.

One of my favorite things to do when I visit Palm Springs is to go to Lappert’s, get a Dole Whip Float, then mix in some dark rum when I get back home. Lazy tiki cocktail 😎🌴🍹
For those that are curious, I wrote up a summary of how I integrated my personal health data from Apple HealthKit into my website. - https://cleverdevil.io/2021/taking-control-of-my-personal-health-data
Today, I finished up the first phase on my personal health tracking system. I have all of my HealthKit data since roughly 2015 in my personal data lake. You can see visualizations here: https://cleverdevil.io/health and I also have integrated health data into my monthly summaries, such as https://cleverdevil.io/summary/2020/01
Drinking a whiskey sour 🥃, eating home made pan pizza 🍕, and watching an outdoor movie 🎥 with all the kids in the neighborhood 👧 by the fire pit 🔥. Can’t beat it!
I finally figured out how to automatically sync my Apple HealthKit metrics to a data lake in S3. I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time. Next step will be integrating the data with my website for in-context health metrics.
Great post! I wrote about a related topic back in 2017. It’s time for a browser to become the lynchpin in the future of the social web. https://cleverdevil.io/2017/user-experience-and-the-indieweb
So, the bad news is that I had to cancel my order for a Power Mac G4 Cube enclosure because it was pretty low quality. The good news is that I lucked out and found a G4 Cube on eBay that actually boots! It arrives next week and I’m thrilled 😁
I just achieved Inbox Zero for the first time in about 18 months. Wowza, does it feel good!
I’ve been having audio issues on my computer for some time, and I finally decided to replace my trusty Tascam US-2x2 XLR interface as I suspected it may be the issue. Sure enough, the Audient EVO 4 that I purchased seems to be working great. 🤞🏼
Tonight’s season finale of The Expanse was not only the best episode of the series, it was one of the finest hours of television I’ve ever seen. My goodness. Just incredible.
Made some poached eggs on buttered toast with fried chicken for brunch today. I think I have earned my “good husband” badge for Sunday. 🍳🍞🍗
Had a daddy-daughter date today with Colette. We went down to Long Beach to drop a present off for her teacher, and then had a picnic lunch in Bixby Park. Now I’m watching Clone Wars with William. ❤️
A new french bakery opened up in the neighborhood, right by the beach. Enjoying an incredibly tasty smoked salmon sandwich on a fresh baguette. Love my little slice of SoCal 😍
Finally getting around to watching the Clone Wars animated series with my son. This is my first watch, and it’s pretty great, though I admit that Jar-Jar Binks sucks just as hard you would expect.
Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo
Welp, I now have an M1 MacBook Pro on the way. Wasn't planning on upgrading, but my current laptop continues to give me issues. Pretty sure its the logic board. Apple Silicon, here I come.
Pleased to report that the problems on my computer with external USB devices has been resolved. My LG UltraFine displays were acting as my "hub," but were super unreliable. Got an OWC Thunderbolt Dock, and all is now well!
My favorite holiday discovery is The Repair Shop, which you can find one season of on Netflix. There is just something special about skilled specialists, deep in their craft, bringing memories back to life that I find utterly delightful. Highly recommended.
In the pantheon of delicious liquids, where bourbon holds the throne, a very strong second place is held by pot likker. Sop it up with cornbread, and thank me later.
My house is full of wonderful aromas right now. Black eyed peas with salt pork, collard greens, and fresh baked cornbread. Cheers to good luck and blessings in 2021! 🥂
Just invented a tasty New Years cocktail. Bulleit bourbon on a large ice ball with a float of Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider. I call it a Kid’s Table.
I test drove the VanMoof S3 and X3 at their pop-up on Abbot Kinney in Venice yesterday. Today, I placed an order for an X3! Very excited, other than the fact that it won’t arrive until Feb/Mar.
Watched Pixar’s new film, Soul, with the family last night. It was beautiful. Highly recommended, especially if you have a soft spot for jazz!
