Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a great retro update. William bought it with his own money from his birthday and we’ve spent hours playing together over my vacation. Such fun!
It’s International Pronouns Day! I’ve updated my profiles with my pronouns (he/him). Long overdue. I’d encourage all of my followers to do the same.
Sorry, folks. I have eaten all the tacos. 🌮 🌮 🌮
Someone really needs to crack the sunscreen problem. I hate applying and reapplying sunscreen all day. Give me a booth I can walk into every four hours and get sprayed down automatically. Take my money!
Spicy shrimp tacos and cocktails by the beach! Hard to beat. 🦐🌶🌮🍹
Had a lovely dinner last night with friends and family to celebrate my birthday. Now, I’m off to the airport to spend five days in Cabo relaxing 🎉
Hey, look, I’m 40! 👋🏼 🎉🎂
In the air, headed home from Boston after a productive week visiting coworkers, partners, and our investor. Tired, and ready for my birthday week to begin!
So... macOS Catalina... should I or shouldn’t I? Typically, I’m a very quick upgrade, but I’m hesitating this time...
Bringing Panda Express onto an airplane is an act of terrorism.
Costs less than five dollars on Amazon, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001UE7SC8?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I was in Seattle from Friday through Monday. We had a lot of fun! My wife booked a little kid-focused tour with a local, which was a good call. She introduced us to a lot of "off the beaten path" spots, including the secret garden. Fun!
I just ordered one of these, as it was dirt cheap and worth trying out - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001UE7SC8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_qnaLDbYM70QJ5
Brands: I noticed you abandoned the checkout process 38 seconds ago, here is an email with a coupon to encourage you to complete your order! Also brands: To unsubscribe, manually type in your email address, complete this captcha, and then wait 5-7 business days.
Lazyweb: I’m in the market for an extremely compact travel power strip, especially for use on airplanes that feature very fiddly, loose power outlets that many power bricks fall out of easily. Shoot me some suggestions if you have them!
Okay, hear me out Seattle: an attraction at the top of the Space Needle where you take photos with a cardboard cutout of Don Cheadle. Call it the Space Cheadle. You’re welcome.

Taking the family to dinner in Seattle, and the kids saw and then demanded Din Tai Fung. I’m not even mad, honestly. Sure, we can get it at home, but... SOUP DUMPLINGS! 🍜 🥟 🎉
Taking a trip to Seattle with the family tomorrow. Nope, we aren’t going to visit AWS. We are taking a long weekend trip to celebrate William’s six birthday! 🎂🎉
After all this is over, I’d definitely watch a zany, dark sitcom about Rudy Giuliani and his cellmate.
My jaw is dropping every hour or two with this news cycle. I simply cannot fathom any sort of delay in removing our President from office. So thankful for brave whistleblowers who give us a chance at that outcome.
Honestly? iOS 13 and the latest iPadOS 13 beta have been pretty awesome for me. I know many people have had issues, but so far, things have been relatively smooth on my devices, and the features are great. 🤞
At @MissionCloud, one of our core values is to “Embrace Life.” Startups require a lot of patience, dedication, and flexibility, which can lead to stress. Today I was able to help a great team member wrap their arms around life. So gratifying 🥰
Nice win for the Rams over the Browns tonight. Plenty of issues to clean up, but happy to be 3-0. Goff needs to be more careful with the ball. Woods had a few drops. Missed a FG. Limit mistakes, and the Rams win by three scores.
Yes, that’s Untitled Goose Game for Switch in the background, and it was #shotoniphone11pro
Lots of travel the next month or so, culminating in a week long trip to Cabo to celebrate my 40th birthday. Today, its LAX-DTW-DCA. See you shortly, Washington DC.
I’m a big fan of Apple’s trade-in pricing and Upgrade Program on iPhone. Why don’t they offer these programs for other products? I’d gladly participate for Apple Watch and iPad Pro as well.
Do I think The Matrix is dangerous? No, absolutely not. It is very much a product of its time. A groundbreaking and entertaining film. But, the technique it used to appeal to its audience can absolutely be exploited.
I remember being so drawn in by The Matrix. I felt seen. Yes, Morpheus, I do feel different. I feel misunderstood. Am I special? Am I the ONE? Looking back, I’m somewhat ashamed of being drawn in. I think of the young boys being tempted by the message of the alt right.
I rewatched The Matrix for the first time in years this weekend thanks to its 20th anniversary re-release in Dolby theaters. I was struck by how badly I wish I could see it again for the first time, but also was shaken by the dangerous message it sends to white, tech-savvy men.
Smoking a pork shoulder today. Got started a bit later in the morning than expected, so running it at a higher cook temp. Left the top vent open a bit too much, which also caused a spike in cook temp while I was at church. Follow along at https://🐷🔥.ws/now
Watching bad college football games in my pajamas on a Saturday morning. We’re back baby!
I use “type to Siri” all the time on my iPad Pro. Its fantastically powerful and a great feature, but annoyingly, even if you have “silent” mode enabled and your volume all the way down, Siri still audibly responds to your commands. Why?! #shhhh
Sigh... the Google Product Black Hole™ strikes again. They really need to change this behavior if they want to build *any* new line of business other than ads. https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/28/20837004/google-hire-next-tool-shut-down-service-jobs-hiring-recruiting-inbox-allo
Thanks for reading my post on my departure from Facebook, Beko! As it turns out, I've developed another tool that doesn't require anything but a JSON export from Facebook and a website that supports Micropub. Check it out here - https://github.com/cleverdevil/ditchbook
@benwerd I keep a completely up-to-date list of feeds that I subscribe to in my microsub server (generated in real-time!) here - http://cleverdevil.io/following. Bonus points: its actually an h-feed you can subscribe to! I never got around to generating an OPML file from it, but I could do that easily. Its all a Known plugin, too :)
Finally finished catching up on the Saga comic series last night. Incredible world building, great characters, and gorgeous art. The cliffhanger at the end of book 54 though? Wow!
🗣🗣️🗣️ Don't use Chrome. Firefox, Safari, and Brave are fantastic alternatives that actually respect your privacy. https://freedom-to-tinker.com/2019/08/23/deconstructing-googles-excuses-on-tracking-protection/
Update on USB-C hubs. I've found this one - https://www.amazon.com/Macally-Ultimate-Powered-Charging-Station/dp/B079Y8S4L3/ - which is close to what I want. Too few USB-C ports, but the best option I've found so far. My ideal would be 4x USB-C and 4x USB-A (3.0).
Looking for a simple hub for my new home office. I want USB-C to my computer and then 4x USB-C and USB-A ports on the hub. Nothing else (HDMI, Ethernet, microSD, etc.). I can’t find anything!
