Testing the latest build of’s Mac app beta, which is now compatible with macOS Sierra, thanks to Manton for listening to the community.

Listening to Manton’s 70th episode of Timetable. I like the “out and about” feel of it. It is similar to what I like to record for my audio bits.

Just waved at the ISS.

The LIGO/Virgo announcement earlier this year will end up proving to be a watershed moment in astrophysics. I knew it was big, but I don’t think I realized how far reaching this will end up being. Very exciting.

After a few weeks of reading sci-fi I’m looking forward to reading some non-fiction.

It is a beautiful fall day for apple picking and apple cider donuts. 

I’m a baseball fan in October.

Finished Star Wars: Aftermath – Empires End. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ – My immediate reaction isn’t good. I liked the first two but expected so much more from this one.

iOS 11.1 Beta 2 doesn’t seem to be identifying people in photos. But the OS has no indication of this process that I know of.

I’ve spent most of the day writing JavaScript (fun!) which was an opportunity to try out ES 2018, the MDN docs, and laugh while reading Eevee’s take on the latest JavaScript spec updates.

As I watch drivers swerve back and forth I’m very thankful to Apple for finally giving us Driving Mode in iOS 11. After just a few weeks I don’t even have the desire to check my phone while driving.

So excited for The Last Jedi trailer this evening.

Finished Southern Reach: Annihilation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ in a single day. What did I just read? What just happened? Must continue.

Finished Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Felt very much like a second-in-a-three-part-series. Looking forward to wrapping up the Aftermath series. But, first, Southern Reach: Annihilation.

Publishing that last post using WordPress for iOS was a headache. It seems there is a bug when editing a post in HTML mode that blows away all links due to smart quotes. I’ve made a note to report the bug tomorrow.

Time for some Gary Clark Jr. and a few fingers of the good stuff.

Though I usually update on the first day, or certainly within the first week, of each macOS release I’m pretty happy with my decision to wait on upgrading to High Sierra. I may even wait until the second point release.

@manton I’d be honored to be listed on Discover.
