Gboard and swiping takes some getting used to but I do think that it’ll be the most efficient way of writing on the iPad mini with the Apple Pencil.

I’m testing out a darker theme on my blog. The plan is to use it to eventually have a dark and a light mode.

@johnjohnston No, I’m just manually marking it up as such. Maybe it has something to do with the blog-subdomain not being what I had previously put into my micro.blog account as my webpage. I’ve changed that now, so let’s see if this reply works better.

@johnjohnston Thanks John! If this works as intended this should show up as a reply at micro.blog, even though it was posted on my blog with “u-in-reply-to”. Does it work?

I’m testing some things with my blog and micro.blog. If you’re willing to possibly receive some test responses, reply to this post on micro.blog.

I’m hoping that turning this switch to “off” in Overcast will decrease the amount of mindless listening and get me to make more conscious choices about when to listen and to what.

(Also I love any excuse to use my Pencil.)

Part of rethinking the tech I use to get work done is also getting rid of Dropbox. From now on, personal documents that need cloud sync goes into iCloud Drive and work stuff goes in OneDrive.

I just found Rebble, a project to keep Pebble watches working. Maybe this is what gets me to love my Pebble again.

Okay, let’s give this a try then!

I made a slight mistake in a previous post. There needs to be two lines in the terminal to play from Spotify:

And yes, things are progressing nicely now.

Right now is my favorite time of the year.

The kids are asleep after a long day of playing in the sun and I’m sitting on the deck, programming and blogging.

Apparently it’s more or less impossible to install additional software on an instance of Pi MusicBox, so I’ll try to get Mopidy working on a ”vanilla” Raspian Lite instead.

My somewhat ridiculous setup for listening to music outdoors today; a Raspberry Pi running PiMusicBox and Spotify Connect connected to an external speaker and being powered by a power bank.

While Nintendo is refusing to take my money I might as well throw the question out there; is there any reason to buy New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe instead of Super Mario Maker 2?

I’m making progress on the music player for my kids. Using Pi MusicBox on the Pi, I can control playback using mpc on my Mac.

An incredibly beautiful sky tonight. The photo doesn’t do it justice at all, but I had to at least try.

Cortex #3: Good for Brain Health – Relay FM

I’ve been relistening to the first episodes of Cortex and it is interesting to do so with hindsight and to see how straight the line is from this monologue by Grey to Project Cyclops.

Om könsrock 26 november 2015 kl 06.00 – Snedtänkt med Kalle Lind | Sveriges Radio

Det här avsnittet av Snedtänkt kan vara det roligaste någonsin! Just det här citatet är extra intressant idag, bara några år senare när humorlösa personer inte bara finns utan även har möjlighet att styra en nätmobb.

Accidental Tech Podcast: 331: The Technical Burden of Users

In my opinion, that kind of interaction with a tv device or a watch or something similarly limited is the best kinds of interactions.

I am so glad that I’m not as picky about monitors as John and Marco. In my world there are tons of good external displays that cost almost nothing.

↪️ Reply to: The Incomparable | Bane on a Plane (Episode 466)

It’s so interesting, the panel here thought that it was pretty well hinted at who was the actual villain of this movie, whereas I thought it came completely out of the left field. The scene mentioned here, by contrast, I thought brought me out of the movie because it was so obvious that this was how the movie was going to end.

🎧 Listened to: Fimpa rökförbudet | Ledarredaktionen on acast

Bra diskussion om det vettlösa nya rökförbudet. Jag har aldrig rökt och vill aldrig göra det men förstår inte varför vi ska låta politiker och särintressen uppfostra oss. Låt vuxna människor själva fatta beslut om saker!

@verso Are there any more episodes of your Westworld podcast, after the reactions to S2E10? The feed appears to not have anything newer that that episode.
I finished season two of Westworld yesterday and I desperately need you and Don to help me through this!

Want to watch a Swedish movie about a well-known Swedish person to celebrate National Day? 🇸🇪

I highly recommend Borg or Borg vs McEnroe as it apparently is known internationally, about tennis player Björn Borg.
