My wife and I were out to lunch and overheard a mom casually say that of course she reads all her fifth grader’s texts, so that was a huge bummer.



I thought I was gonna have to build something like this myself but it turns out it’s just there in Git itself!


It’s wild how much goodwill Chef is willing to throw away for the sake of their ICE contract.


The new people shortcuts on the iOS 13 share sheet have made it a whole lot easier for me to send my wife really dumb memes.


Got a notice the other day that my lawn is so shitty it’s illegal and I better fix it or go to court. Apparently that’s what it takes to get me to get out the lawnmower.

(It’s really not that bad, they’re just fussy)


I really like the swipey keyboard on iOS 13. The only thing getting in the way of me using it more is remembering the feature exists.




I installed iOS 13. I know it’s buggy but I held out the whole beta, just couldn’t hold out anymore.



Just wasted a night trying to make stuff work with SwiftUI that would be absolutely trivial with UIKit. I love the concept for SwiftUI, and I don’t even think it’s bad that Apple released it now, but it definitely needs to bake some more.


iOS development has come a long way since I last did it seriously (around iOS 8). There’s so much good stuff in the SDK, especially in iOS 13, that’s making it really easy for me to make a quality app. I’m really excited about it.



I’m playing through A Link to the Past on my Switch since I don’t think I ever completed it before (or got all that far even). I just gotta say…it’s kinda kicking my ass!


As significant and influential as Stallman’s projects have been to the tech world, I have to think we’d have been better off having the contributions of all the folks (esp. non-men) that we’re discouraged from tech by his presence.

Same for any other “brilliant jerks.” 🙄


This morning, I ate a whole Waffle House All-Star Breakfast for the first time in years. I’m still not sure if this was a good or bad decision.


He didn’t get to be the richest man in the world by compensating his workers fairly.


This is a really interesting thread about the whole Epstein funding the MIT Media Lab thing and its effect on the direction of science as a whole.


A sick day is a good day to rewatch Into the Spiderverse and be reminded how much that movie rocks.


I’m like 3/4 of the way through The Rise of Kyoshi and it is extremely good.



My dog play fights with the other dog by whipping his butt in her face. I feel like humans haven’t explored this style of combat enough.


I started a new iOS app project this weekend, and I’ve been reminded that UIKit is actually still really nice to work in.
