The number blocker I started using has successfully blocked an entire area code. However, it doesn’t prevent callers from leaving me voicemail.

I used Apple’s Freeform app yesterday to do some data modeling. Worked great!

I must be enjoying work lately because when 5 o’clock rolled around the last couple of days it really caught me off-guard.

Oh neat! Life imitating art. 🫠

WSJ: Dangerous Fungi Are Spreading Across U.S. as Temperatures Rise

If Dire Straits wrote Money For Nothing today it would be about Twitch streamers.

Castlevania theme stuck in my head.

Worried about my friends in Austin.

Ads in the App Store? That’s just scratching the surface.

Those ads shouldn’t exist.

They’re still a multinational corporation worth hundreds of billions of dollars. You don’t get to that point without abusing people. We know they use child labor. We know they bust unions. This is not a good company worthy of trust.

I’m getting to a point where, despite their claimed stance on privacy, despite their antagonistic stance toward user tracking, despite their efforts to undermine advertising on other platforms, I just don’t trust Apple or believe that they are operating in our best interests.

“Hey Siri, play ‘Do The Bartman’” actually works.

Find someone who looks at you the way my dog looks at me when I’m cooking breakfast sausage.

I have a fondness for early Green Day, too.

I have a really hard time listening to music from the mid- to late-90s. Teenage years, traumatic time and all that. Been dipping in here and there over the last year or so. I really missed some of this music.

Warped by the Red Hot Chili Peppers is a fuckin’ banger.

Really sick of hearing rumors about Apple releasing devices with folding screens.

Coffee’s kicking in.

Time for the rare (for me) 3:45 pm coffee.

Have you noticed that trying to maintain your privacy online and being a career criminal is a Venn diagram that looks like a circle?

Well, after buying a new washer and dryer, having them installed, finding out we needed to replace the plumbing, and replacing the plumbing, I’m finally washing clothes. These machines are so quiet!

It’s weird what you get excited about as an adult.

You call it a mute button but we all know it’s a yawn button. 🥱

One of these apps was made by a soulless corporation. The other was made by an indie developer. Can you tell the difference?

Took a moment from fiddling with Linux to install a phone call blocker that can deny-list entire area codes. Suck it, 510. Done with this garbage. Sick of having my day interrupted by spammers.

If Fight Club is ever remade, the target of the massive bombing at the end will be data centers instead of credit agencies.

Updating our HomePods to 16.3. Woohoo temperature sensors! 🙃

Kinda surprised my snarky weather app hasn’t said it’s cloudy with a chance of bullets. JFC.
