The Alienist is the single best show Netflix have put out in years. A suspenseful psychological thriller set in 1896 with brilliant acting set in a well executed setting. What I’m saying is.. watch it and bask in its glory.

I’m kinda hoping the current Mac Pro is eventually viewed by history the same way the G4 Cube is. A beautifully designed object which will become retro cool in spite of it’s failure in the market.

Productive morning. Up at 6am since I couldn’t sleep, already had breakfast, did the laundry, fertilized and watered the garden. So now I have to whole rest of the day to write some productive Fish Shell functions.

Super excited about KING Arts Games’s Iron Harvest. I love strong single player campaign RTS games, a focus on tactics over actions per minute and a really interesting world. Sadly I cannot give them my money as they did not commit to producing a Mac or iOS version.

Thanks to @panic’s Coda editor, @BlinkShell and tmux I have not physically touched my Mac in weeks. Now when I have the choice of walking to my home office or whipping out my iPad Air, it’s just natural to sit comfortably in the software and do scripting.

I posit that there are few problems which don’t become easier by applying an all Rush mixtape.

Few moments feel as good as when a new improved script just runs without a single issue.. because you wrote the damn tests this time.

Lovely. Now to turn my back and await the inevitable crashes bug.

This is one thing that pisses me off. First Intel announces microcode updates for old chips and gain a ton of goodwill. Then they pretty much silently drops plans for microcode updates

I realized last night that I’m essentially building a quasi standard library and a sorta type system for Fish Shell scripts. I may be engaging in ludicrous behavior.

There are few things that fill me with as much joy as seeing Nathan Fillion in any role however small.

I’m increasingly tempted to forgo upgrading my Mac Mini to an iMac. Instead I was considering buying an iPad Pro and get a cheap Intel NUC running Linux for Plex as I mostly use the Mac as a server these days and my majority of use is via @BlinkShell on my iPad Air.

Dear @Microsoft leaving your Windows Insider Program shouldn’t take 10 minutes of plodding around on your website. To top it off your feedback form doesn’t work.

And once again our house flooded.. roughly an inch of water in the living room. Oh joy.

I get a lot of enjoyment out of @arstechnica so I decide to become a subscriber. I’d like to see them on though, it would make spotting articles a bit easier.

The absolutely best time for heavy enough rainfall to flood into my house is absolutely right after we both showered and changed into our party clothes. That made for the fanciest rescue and cleaning operation in a while.

Yesterday I made baked hot dogs and I had some extra dough which was going to be pizza but ended up as a nice loaf of bread with herbs.

Today’s production, rye breads made with dark beer and rye flakes.

I think this sums up America pretty well.

After providing radiation, the state insisted the cancer was in remission and prioritized his execution over further treatment.

Lubuntu, providing information in busses here in Curitiba.

I’ve been rewatching Time Team the past few weeks and rediscovering how great TV can be as a teaching tool. There really isn’t much well presented science available anymore and it’s a shame.
