NASA’s DART Mission was fun to watch last night. Waking up to impact observations from around the globe. So fun. Space stuff happens often now. It is great.

Unmark is now $10/year (down from $55/year). All current customers will be automatically adjusted. I want more people to be able to use it. If there are enough upgrades, I’m going to consider rebuilding it from scratch on a modern framework.

The One Drive app eats a lot of resources and I don’t like that it can update itself without warning. If it wasn’t for work I think I’d switch off of One Drive completely.

I keep jotting down notes to give an update on my thoughts on NFTs, Ethereum’s merge, and cryptocurrency in general only to save them as drafts or delete them. Not because my current opinions aren’t clearly defined, but more so because I’m having trouble making them coherent and concise.

I’m looking forward to iOS 16’s new Focus features (where it is switchable with home screen/Lock Screen). But I think I’ll be waiting for a dot release before upgrading. Also, when macOS Ventura ships I’ll likely wait for – the very least – two dot releases.

My Canon EF-S 18-55mm lens, the kit lens that came with my original Canon DSLR from eons ago, finally gave up. The aperture is kaput. If anyone has one of these lenses just lying around and you no longer will ever use it, I’d be happy to take it off your hands.

Apple One’s Family Plan should have more storage options. Currently you can purchase 200GB of extra storage for the entire family. Optionally, you can add additional iCloud+ Drive space for $9.99/month but that makes it more expensive than Apple One’s Premier Plan. 200GB for a family was enough in 2005. Today plans should start at 1TB.
