Appreciate the responses to yesterday’s email question. Have decided to simplify my email approach, and do away with rules and folders. Already much less time consuming!

I’ve been using mail rules and organizing messages into folders for years but it’s largely unnecessary nowadays. I search for any message I need and never dig through folders. I’m considering ditching the folder structure in favor of just Inbox/Archive/Trash.

I’m really impressed at how easy it was to set up Homebridge on a Raspberry Pi. Took almost no effort to add all my Ring cameras and alarm system to Home.

I don’t understand why Apple chooses to use a burger and soda as the icon for the Emoji food section. They could use another type of food that’s a healthier option.

Like an Apple.

Our daughter has a mild fever. At any other time we’d be a little less worrisome but this “new normal” has us needing to consider so many variables.

  • Could it be COVID?
  • Is it high enough to need a doctor’s visit?
  • Should we risk a visit?
  • Would we be exposing ourselves?

Ordered a HomePod. As much as we’re invested in the Echo ecosystem, my frustrations with it are outweighing my reluctance to move off of them. Most of our devices support HomeKit but some don’t, mainly our Ring cameras and alarms. HomeBridge should resolve that though.

I’m now at the nexus of parenting and middle age where back injuries become a way of life. Managed to injure myself taking my daughter out of her swing on Friday and I’ve been lumbering about ever since.

One downside of potentially ditching my Amazon Echo in favor of a HomePod and HoneKit is that some smart devices I own don’t support it. I’d have to replace those to. But the Echo has been so frustrating that I’d be willing to do that.

We’ve been using Amazon Echo for a few years and have devices dotted around the house. I’ve been generally happy with it but the past few months have been borderline infuriating. It’s so bad that I’m considering ditching them entirely and switching to a HomePod.

Any recommendations for repurposing an old gaming PC? It’ll struggle with some recent games but generally fully functional. I haven’t used it in a long while (replaced it three years ago) and it’s just been collecting dust in my closet.

I’ve been working through the Learn to Code exercises in Swift Playgrounds in my spare time. They’re very good fun and surprisingly challenging at times.

Finally deleted my Facebook account. Feels good.

Almost 100 photos migrated from Instagram. So far so good.

πŸ”— Former employees accuse Cards Against Humanity of a racist and sexist office culture

they characterize a racist and sexist company culture that disproportionately affected Black employees.

Almost wrapped up my move off of Instagram. I finished uploading all my “best” photos to Flickr, using the originals from my photo library. Next step is to migrate my Instagram archive to Micro.blog.

I much prefer the format of today’s keynote. It provided Apple and presenters with much more freedom to show off everything being announced. I would rather they do this every year.

Running PowerPC apps on Intel Macs with Rosetta was an overall seamless experience but performance was noticeably impacted. I wonder what the balance of power and emulation will be with Rosetta 2.

Rosetta 2: Translation Boogaloo

Universal 2: Silicon Boogaloo

Solid updates to Safari. Nothing groundbreaking but a good focus on security and privacy.

“Drug-fuelled minivan quests” wins as best quote from the keynote.

Wow, requiring developers to provide a privacy summary is significant.

The new handwashing countdown in watchOS 7 is one of those features that sounds like a gimmick but will deliver real health benefits.

“Set default mail and browser apps” in iPadOS 14 was buried in that summary screen! 🀯

The Slackification of iOS 14 Messages may seem trivial but these are significant improvements. Glad to see Apple is focusing on the smaller stuff rather than big, new features.

iOS 14: now with Metro tiles! 🀯

Not to make this political but Tim Cook took less than a minute to talk about racism, inequality, and the death of George Floyd. Trump didn’t mention it once during his two-hour rant in Tulsa.

Is this thing on?

Well I am a bit of an expert

Time to fire up the grill πŸ–

What are some recommended resources and materials for learning Swift and iOS app development? I don’t have a billion dollar app idea, I’ve just always been interested and inspired by others who do it.

Regarding this whole Hey / Apple mess, what I don’t understand is why Apple continues to insist on a 30% cut? That number was decided when the App Store launched 12 years ago. Surely the market has grown so much that even a 10% cut would cover costs and make a profit?

Apple Pay on Apple Watch has been especially useful on trips to the grocery store. I’d normally just use my iPhone but with face masks blocking Face ID, I’ve learned to embrace Apple Pay on the watch.

It’s been so long since we last used our electric car regularly that the 12v battery is dead. I could jumpstart it but it’s easier to remove the battery and charge it.

It’s strange that there’s no way to transfer power from the main battery which has plenty of charge.

Amazing launch by NASA and SpaceX! The launch may be over but the live coverage of the mission continues until they dock with the ISS πŸš€

I’ve been interested in drone photography and recently purchased a DJI Mavic Mini. I only just got around to flying it for the first time yesterday.

The weather on Mercer Island wasn’t great but I still had a good bit of practice and managed to get a few good shots, even some video.

Mythic Quest’s quarantine episode was great fun and surprisingly moving. πŸ“Ί

After reading about the App.net archive that @manton has made available, I created a shortcut to download a copy of your posts. It’s functionality is basic: enter your username when prompted and it’ll save the JSON for each post to iCloud Drive.

Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful wife, Heather. Pictured here with our daughter, Eleanor.

Glad to see the Ring app make use of Critical Alerts in iOS, a feature I had completely forgotten about.

Translucent Benchy

Making a bit more progress on updates to Mocktail. There’s a lot of new mockups I want to add and it takes a bit of time to get them all set up.

Looking forward to trying the new update to Working Copy:

Working Copy is able to create Digital Ocean droplets on demand for use with the SSH features of the app.

Droplets are tagged with working_copy and can be stopped, started and destroyed from within the app.

Finally working on a major update to my Mocktail shortcut.

Installed a glass bed onto my Ender 3 Pro but had some disappointing results as prints would come lose during printing. After a few layers the print would get pulled off the bed and stick to the extruder.

I’ve been getting back into 3D printing recently and finally set up my new Ender 3 Pro. Here it is alongside my MP Mini.
