Most valuable lesson learned during this visit to Denmark. Do not.. ever.. go drinking with a volunteer bartender who is 10 years your junior.. you will end walking home in the cold with absolutely no money and no memory of how it happened except “my friend, fancy a pint?”

Mission log: As expected I survived another year and I have now spent 37 years living amongst these curious humans… I’m still not sure why dogs don’t run this planet.

Given any sufficiently large text input box I will eventually try to write Markdown or shell script in it. As evident in my currently Soulver sheet… started as quick math, grew into a budget sheet. Reasoned about choices in text and then suddenly… 4 pages of syntax dabbling..

Even with a fusion drive the 27” iMac performs great under macOS 10.14 (developer beta). The same can’t be said for 10.13.x as it is currently shipped, you will, like I, want to throw that thing out a window.

Luckily on the 27” you can also easily upgrade memory.

I got my hands on the iOS 12 developer beta just to check out Apple Books and it is just a lick of paint on top of the existing utterly broken foundation.

Still locks up on large collections, still downloads all manners of books without being asked, still fails to open books.

And my Mac Mini 2011 is officially not supported by Mojave. Hopefully it can be abused into running.

Excited about Apple Books, I love iBooks but the underlying technology is just broken. Hoping this isn’t just a fresh coat of paint and rather represents serious effort put into the app.

News still not coming to more regions is just sad at this point.

So Siri Shortcuts is Workflow, useful but possibly limited. Look forward to prodding it with a stick.

WWDC really is like Christmas for me, new shiny toys to break and explore.

iOS 12 supporting my iPad Air is a big load off my mind. I’m happy Apple did the right thing for their users.

Who ever came up with the salad and kebab pizza is a genius. Soggy warm salad on a pizza should not work, yet add dressing and it magically becomes the king of pizzas.


And I am off to visit my family in Denmark… be excellent internet people.

Twitter: we love you so do you have any suggestions? Users: Get rid of the Nazis and the trolls Twitter: 3rd party developers are evil you say, righto!

There’s a new version of Tweetbot for macOS but in the light of this and other 3rd party hostile moves I can’t really justify buying it despite wishing to support the developer of my favorite Twitter client. It just seems sadly doomed.

Holy crap @LouisDhauwe literally just pushed a new TestFlight beta while I was downloading the previous build. The man is shaming me with his progress.

Maxine Waters is my hero.…

I love Zootopia but I just realized one weird thing. They don’t appear to have the police academy in the city, instead they seem to train like damn militia somewhere in the boonies.

Now you too can glorify the apartheid regime. Because who wouldn’t want to be nostalgic about brutality and racism.

Feeling productive today, fixed a bug and cleaned the fridge.
