Got my iPhone 13 Pro (Gold, 512GB) in the mail today. Happy to be off the Pro Max line. A fun experiment, but I definitely prefer the smaller size.
I may be in the minority on this one, but I generally like the new Safari across iPad OS, iOS, and macOS. The tab interface isn't good on macOS or iPad OS, but the sidebar and tab groups that sync across devices is amazing. I'd like to see tabs moved to the sidebar as well!
I was skeptical, but Schmigadoon is pretty hilarious.
“The pug ate my Apple Pencil” isn’t how I wanted to start my Sunday, but here we are. 🐶 😈
My new workflow for processing emails, tasks, and notes with Obsidian and Mimestream has had me at Inbox Zero across personal and work accounts for a week. #productivity
Lost in all of the (justified) criticism about Safari's new tab UI is how great the new "tab groups" feature is. Segmenting browser tabs into "workspaces" that sync across devices is great for organization. I'd even be OK with tabs being in the sidebar as list items...
I decided that it would be a good time to read Anathem again. I think it has surpassed Snow Crash as my favorite Stephenson book.
Finished Loki last night. I really enjoyed it, overall. The finale was a bit heavy handed, with too much exposition, but I think it was worth it to introduce an incredible villain with deep history in Marvel lore.
Facebook takes your personal data and exploits it for profit in shady ways. GitHub has now done the same, but with your source code. GitHub is a much better company than Facebook is, and they have an opportunity to prove it now. So, prove it.
Well, I guess we have at least one terrifying answer to the question of "what if a significant, double-digit percentage of the world's code was in a for-profit company's possession."
Father’s Day thus far has featured breakfast for daddy, two hours of Breath of the Wild, and a visit from my parents. Next up, a soak in the hot tub, and an early dinner with a view.
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. ❤️
