You're confusing peace with terror.

Might be tempted to add a Flight Sim Diary section to my site 🤔😆

Sublime Ads, MRR: €6.12 😍🥳 I know it's not much in the grand scheme of things, but I am over the moon. This makes me happy! Thank you so much to everyone that subscribed so far ✌️

I had this note, in the Notes app, from 2012. Sometimes I find it "again", so I thought I'll share it. I don't know who wrote it, I never noted it down. Here it is:

Life

Wake up early.

Avoid distractions.

Work three to five hours a day and then enjoy the rest of the day.

Be as perfectionist as you can, knowing that imperfection will still rule.

Have the confidence to be magical and stretch the boundaries of your medium.

Combine the tools of the medium itself with the message you want to convey.

Don’t get stuck in the same rut – move forward, experiment, but with the confidence built up over experience.

Another X-Plane flight last night. As usual I use real weather. It was sporty and choppy (quite windy up there). Stuttgart to Biggin Hill. I tried out a different time, instead of flying at night. It was nice.

Trying to make my way up to Greenland via several legs.

Abstract Development

It's the first episode after the school holidays... and yes, just got around to editing it, so it's WAY out of date.

First off I welcome ya'll back and touch on trying to do a little less technology. You can skip this section...

Now to the juicy bits. Micro.blog App and recent Android changes and moving onto making it cross-platform (as in... get it ready for iOS release)(finally). And as you might be aware, we've come quite a long way since this episode.

I touch on profile pop ups that we introduced on Micro.blog.

Oh and Gluon... poor app.

Then I touch on my blogging habits in August and trying to stay offline a little more. You may also skip this section.

Urgh. Code done for today. More this weekend. Messy project, and last minute "oh we missed to give you this" 🙄😭

I think I need some heavy drum & bass music to get through some code.

Super great review from David Smith, on the Apple Watch Ultra. Really motivating and also insightful. Hope I can do a few more hikes before winter approaches...

I do like the default wallpaper in macOS Ventura... because it's orange... but I don't understand why they opted for a CGI graphic. I don't even know what it's supposed to be.

Difficult client meeting today, which was a bit hot headed. I turned off the camera and let it unfold (and stayed quiet for most part, except where I could help with input). Urgh.

I think a lot of my changes recently are because I'm reading Four Thousand Weeks. I'm still in the intro chapter (around 10% through).

It's starting to point right... I better make a slow move towards school πŸ˜‹

Except a few exceptions this is how my time keeping works on macOS:

It points to the right (~3 o'clock) I need to pick up the kid at school. Points to the top (~12 o'clock), I should be thinking about lunch or bedtime. No more minute watching. Go with the flow of time.

Looks like Fitness+ does record the exercise workout time now in the latest 16.1 betas. Only noticed because I was looking for a workout. Good to have I guess when I'm old and wish I had the data (probably not).
