Had a blast yesterday hiking in Joshua Tree. We conquered a hidden hike called “The Chasm of Doom,” which was very challenging. Extremely gratifying!
Moderna bivalent power up. 💪🏻💉
Just finished “Nope.” Profoundly disappointing. The characters were paper thin, the “baddie” was underwhelming, and the storylines never came together in a satisfying way. Good cinematography, though.
I am still on an Apple Watch Series 4 and was anticipating an upgrade this year. Unfortunately, I was hoping for a titanium watch, and unlike the S7, the S8 doesn’t come in titanium. Should I wait for S9, get an S8 in another finish, or find a titanium S7?
My favorite local Chinese restaurant is closing 😭
Absolutely loving the Space Black color of my new iPhone. Much more attractive than I expected.
When I was growing up, we used to play a game where we’d grease up a watermelon with vaseline, throw it in the pool, and try and wrangle it. I’m pretty sure that’s what it must feel like to try and tackle Kyler Murray.
Free idea for you, Amazon — add-on for Prime customers where you take empty boxes *away*, and re-use them for future orders.
My evenings include building a Tailscale network for home services, writing a custom controller for RF transmission, integrating a 64x64 RGB display with my home automation, building a custom Apple TV scrobbler for Trakt, creating macOS menu widgets for my HVAC and Solar…
Oh, and there’s more where that came from. A lot more! If you’re a technologist, never ever let yourself stop finding ways to engage your mind with technology. Every problem you solve, no matter how small, is valuable. Stay sharp. Believe in making the world better.
Tonight’s project? Working on a “music box” for my daughter. It is a little Raspberry Pi Zero with an RF reader connected. She can decorate little plastic RF tags to represent individual songs, tap them on the “music box” and the song will play on her HomePod Mini. It works!
Fatherhood seems to be about 60% telling people to be quiet and 40% assembling flatpack furniture.
Finally got to Thor: Love and Thunder. It was… fine. Gorr is an amazing villain, the soundtrack slaps, and the kids put on a show. But, they needed to pump the brakes a little on the camp.
I’ve made up my mind that I’m going to nuke my Windows 10 retro gaming rig and install Steam OS / EmuDeck. Windows is just far too unstable and it’s sucking the joy from what is supposed to be fun. ✌🏼
