Screwing around with Docker all afternoon instead of doing the actual work I need to do. Hate Docker. I’m sure it’s great but, man.

I stopped enjoying banking when they stopped giving me free suckers in the drive-thru.

Is FaceID coming to Apple Studio Display at some point?

That would go a long way toward making passkeys accessible to me (biometric ones anyway—I don’t really understand what options I have).

Spoke at a web dev meetup Wednesday night about “home-cooked” apps. It went great! iA Presenter is a nice tool.

Had to put together a talk on short notice and I’m using @ia Presenter. It’s freaky how well this tricks you into writing a good talk instead of fiddling with slides for hours.

Trying to decide if it’s time to join some webrings. Yes, right? But which ones?

Procrastinating starting on a talk I’m supposed to give on Wednesday.

Mac apps I’ve been enjoying lately (both old and new):

  • Ivory: welcome this fantastic Mastodon client to the Mac App Store!

  • Tot: this replaced the built-in Stickies app for me. And it’s free!

  • Silicio: luxurious mini-player that works with Apple Music and Spotify

  • iA Writer: great for writing and has all the features I need to be my main notes store.

  • Things: I’m not a todo junkie but I can’t keep everything in my head all the time. Things helps me remember what needs to be done.

I dislike the UI pattern of “floating action buttons” because they end up blocking some part of the app I want to click or read. I get why they exist, though.

It kind of pisses me off that I can’t take a screenshot of a Netflix video. I understand DRM to an extent but a single still seems like fair game idk.

(My only attempt was using macOS’ screenshot tool while using Firefox. I’m sure there are other ways.)

This morning’s soundtrack is Depression Cherry by Beach House.

Very much enjoying Tycho this week for some reason. I think my favorite album is Epoch.

Yay just installed the Ivory Mac app! I’ve been using the test version and it’s been pretty great.

No one I know agrees with me but I like Apple Numbers. And the reason I like it is the reason most people I’ve asked don’t—Numbers let’s you put multiple tables on a page and move them around.
