It’s been an expensive weekend. I bought a new TV - LG OLED C1 - then discovered my current Yamaha 375 receiver was too old to drive it, so had to upgrade to a new Denon AVR-X550BT receiver. Fortunately, I’d been saving money for a long time in a YNAB category!

I’ve pulled out my old cameras to have a play. Going to pare things right back: shoot jpg not RAW, use P mode instead of A/S, and see how things turn out. Back to basics. ๐Ÿ“ท

My wife will be jumping off a building in November!

The WA Minister for Mines & Petroleum; Energy; Corrective Services was kind enough to draw attention to this fact in Parliament today:

It’s all for a good cause though. Hannah is participating in the Central Park Plunge 2021 in support of Guide Dogs WA.

If you’d like to support the effort, this is Hannah’s fundraising page.

Exploring Glass encouraged me to revisit Flickr. The latter is technically better (despite the bugs and UC mishmash) but people are active on Glass. If I could have only one, it would still be Flickr. Why canโ€™t that site be more successful? ๐Ÿ“ท

Isnโ€™t this the most Microsoft-y thing? Jargon, complexity, and obfuscation. Classic.

I finished watching Physical on AppleTV+. The first half of the series had me engaged and interested, the second half left me feeling undernourished and somewhat confused.

2005 doesnโ€™t seem all that long ago. (A shared post from Glass.)

With thanks to @keithpound Iโ€™m in at Glass. My username is canion over there, too.

This Twitter thread (which should be a blog, but anyway) from Rich Siegel regarding Electron on macOS should be required reading for anybody who takes even a vague interest in this stuff.

The situation in Afghanistan is deeply saddening. I think of all the women and children, in particular, who are now going to face extremely difficult lives, with no genuine prospect of relief. ๐Ÿ˜”

In the process of cancelling my renewal for 1Password I noticed they were charging me more than their standard advertised rate. I was paying $5.49 per month, as opposed to their standard $4.99.

I despise Electron apps. What is the point of having a superior operating system (macOS) if every app that resides on it...

Pfizer jab #2 has definitely knocked me around, but totally worth it. Iโ€™m getting awesome 5G coverage, I missed a phone call from Bill Gates and the deep State have sent me a manilla folder with mission details inside! What a day! ๐Ÿ’‰

I’m maxinated! Starting to perhaps feel the affects of the second dose of Pfizer, but it’s a price worth paying! ๐Ÿ’‰
