I’m in a phase where I have an absolute ton of work to do and everything is working great on my computer. So, I don’t want any software to be updated for 60 days or so. I seem to hit this sweet spot about once a year.

I’ve been using Raindrop for several months. It is very good, aside from a glaring omission. But I think I’m going to export my bookmarks and go back to Unmark and start putting some time back into that project. I think I need to rebuild it from scratch though, the codebase is already 10 years old.

Haruki Murakami is incredible. I finished Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage and, although I have no clue how to rate the book, I can’t wait to start another Murakami book.

Old man peeve: when posts begin “this is going to be a long one” (or, similar) and are only a few short paragraphs. A Tolstoy novel is “a long one”. A blog post is probably not.

I just added the generative art music project I’ve been working off and on for 6 months – Infinite Posters – to my portfolio. I’ll continue to add to it as the project progresses and I’m planning a behind-the-scenes blog post soon.

I recently set my iPhone, iPad, and Mac to automatically switch to Dark Mode at sunset. Digging it so far. As a result, I’ve created a dark version of my website. So you Dark Mode people needn’t fear blindness visiting any longer. More updates as I have time.

Spring 2022: I’m super busy at the day job, six active customers for the side gig, a freelance project that could start any day, a ton of personal projects that I’d love to spend time on, our garden!, and a (much needed) short vacation coming up.

Sometimes I wish I had unlimited time to work on my personal projects – but then I realize that by limiting my time to an hour here and an hour there it forces me to be super productive.

Trying to make my switch to Apple Maps result in better experience for all. So I’m jotting down notes to send to Apple. Adjusting locations and I sent in Feedback (née, Radar) FB10127605. Sharing a single location from a Guide results in sending the entire Guide.

I’m considering the switch from Google Maps to Apple Maps. It looks like I found an iOS Shortcut to move my Saved Places (from a Google Takeout JSON), though it is going to take a considerable amount of time to do it.

It saddens me when I find a great personal blog that has been abandoned only to find that the person has moved all their publishing onto a social media platform. Go back to your blog! Syndicate your posts!

May have found a Finder bug in macOS 12.4. I use the bulk renaming feature a lot. And recently doing so restarts Finder. Unsure how to submit this bug though.
