I wonder if there are plans for micro.blog themes to display webmentions out of the box. Or short of that, if there’s an easy way for me to add them without too much futzing about.

I don’t own a cell phone or a pager. I just hang around everyone I know, all the time. If someone needs to get a hold of me, they just say, “Mitch,” and I say, “What?” and turn my head slightly.

I may need to take a break from using Emacs/Mu4e for email. Too many times during the day I run into some little snag. Email should be frictionless and my Mu4e setup is not. Back to Mailmate for now, then.

Well that was easy. Plus I’m controlling it all via the Mac, iPad, and iPhone. Music everywhere. This is like my first time with Sonos but way better. Roon is my favorite new thing.

It’s only been a couple of days, but Roon may be the greatest thing to happen to my (non-vinyl) music listening ever. https://roonlabs.com/ (Think of the $500 lifetime subscription in terms of other audio devices and it feels almost justifiable).

Well it’s been 24 hours and the novelty of not having internet has worn off. I’m going to the office.

Another benefit of a static blog is being able to look stuff up on it without an internet connection. “$ grep foo” and done.

(Streaming my own music to HomePod via AirPlay) Me: “Hey Siri, turn it up”. Siri (pausing the music): “I’m having trouble connecting to the internet right now.” …pause continues… “I’m sorry, for more information…” …music stops… Me: 🤬🤬🤬

Imagine how great macOS could be if everyone wasn’t so distracted by all this iOS nonsense.

One nice side effect of disliking my laptop’s keyboard so much is that I’m not as easily tempted away from my paper journal. The way writing feels is important to me and for that, pen and paper kills the MBP.

After four days in beautiful surroundings, I’ve taken maybe a dozen photos. I’m feeling like, “Ooh, a palm tree, how original.” Random selfies are more fun. WHO AM I?

The Touch Bar is basically unusable in any sort of sunlight. I’m sorry to be so bitchy about it, but this MacBook Pro is the first Mac (and I’ve had many) that I actively dislike. Using it annoys me. Nice screen, though.
