• 🎵 David Sylvian, “A Victim of Stars 1982–2012

  • 🎵 Lionrock, “City Delirious

    (pretty low-quality video of one of the tracks, but more interesting than the other “play-over-static-image” videos I could find)

  • Really wish I could purchase an HD copy of Tarsem Singh’s “The Fall” right now.

  • Dragonfly 😍

  • I was just asked by the 9yo to explain what pocket protectors are (were?).

    She responded with “That’s so cool!” 🤓

    I think I might be doing this wrong.

  • Well, that was a “fun” couple hours wondering how I could be screwing up something as fundamental as parsing a URL. FB8195416

    URL variable shows nil in variables pane, but is populated in lldb console

  • Me: “Then I realized kids these days don’t even know Celine Dion!”

    9yo: “You mean ‘Gomez’?”


  • “Double aloha” has entered the family lexicon for 🖕🖕”thanks” to “Locke & Key”. 🤭

  • Well, that was interesting. 🤔 Watch periodically becomes unresponsive, seems to coincide w/ draining battery so I suspect an out-of-control process but no idea how to instrument it. First I’ve seen this, though, just before it rebooted itself.

    Watch overlaying Deliveries info and application list.

  • Entering my last week of unemployment: Next Monday I start as Sr iOS Dev at Doctor on Demand. 🥳 Many thanks to all who helped spread the word of my job search.

  • A subselection of the cat crinkle balls fished out from under the fridge yesterday.

  • Last night I realized I’d never seen “The Hunger”.

    Should have left it at that. 😬

  • Still bothers me I can’t set day variations on my Watch. “No, you can’t do 900cal just 5days/wk and 600 the other two, it has to be 900 every day. Your reward? Requiring 960 every day after!”

  • I bought “Fire in the Valley” quite a while ago but sadly left it languish on my digital bookshelf. Finally making the time to read it.

  • Some mornings are just too darn nice to go on my usual walk. Need to just sit here, do some reading, and enjoy the view.
