My review of The White Lotus season 1: this season could have been an email.

So many episodes. So much fat that could have been trimmed. The cinematography was gorgeous. So much time wasted. Very bloated.

Listened to the new Metallica single and somehow James Hetfield has channeled Lemmy. This is very confusing but I like it?

See what I mean?

Trying to look on the bright side.

I had two meetings today but both got canceled. That’s good.

I had a cinnamon bun for breakfast.

I ordered a new pouch for my backpack and it came in today and it’s fantastic.

My dog is cute.

This…was not a great day.

I really really want to take the day off and just sleep but I can’t.

Idea: a new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race but it’s a repeat of season 6.

Bring back the same people. Do it again.

Everyone talking about Iconfactory’s software seems to have forgotten about Linea, which is an absolutely wonderful drawing app for the iPhone and iPad. I used it to teach math when we temporarily homeschooled our kids.

Who do I have to threaten to get PiP mode in VLC on iOS?

I really do not care for people who rode the wave of Web 2.0 into cushy conference speaker gigs and talking head positions stomping their way onto a Mastodon server and declaring federation, open standards, et al., as the future when the rest of us have know this for a long time.

I’ve spent the last couple of days fiddling around with a laptop running Ubuntu.

I could get comfortable here.

Excited to watch The Last of Us. Never played the games, but I love Pedro Pascal, and apocalypse shows are right up my alley.

We did a little brushing today. 😬

Sorry—Craft was funded by a VC firm that took money from a VC firm. It wasn’t created by a VC firm.

Point still stands, though.

On a similar note (ha!), I wrote about the note-taking app Craft almost two years ago. A tiny bit of digging revealed that the app was created by a VC firm that took money from yet another VC firm. People with these sorts of debts can’t be trusted with your data.

I figured folks wouldn’t need to be told not to trust a startup that’s burning money over a solved problem, but it looks like enough people haven’t learned this lesson yet. Take a moment before signing up for these services to ask if you or your data will be exploited.

I’ve been using GoodLinks for a while now, and it’s great. Syncs via iCloud. Does not collect any data about you. No upsells or in-app purchases. The reader mode is customizable with fonts and various controls for spacing. Highly recommend this over Matter.

Y’all. You don’t need an internet service to host your read-later links. Especially not a service that’s raised $7 million in funding. For bookmarks.…

Bolsanar—oh, no!

Dr. Pepper Zero Sugar should not exist. I’m not sure what deal they made with which evil deity to create this stuff. It’s like pure syrup. No calories. How. It’s going to kill me, isn’t it? The fake sugar, I mean.

Hollow Knight is one of the best games I’ve ever played. I’ve gotten so much enjoyment out of it that I’m sad I’m almost done with it.

Final episode of Andor………now.

I have decided to participate in Dry January this year. 🤞

Bonestorm was $60 in 1995, which is $109.75 in 2022 money.
