Just some social posts. Take 'em, leave 'em. Whatever.

Asking for the folks that follow me on Mastodon… do you see my new profile picture (as per my website?).

... testing something 😋

My wife stood next to me, and looked at my screen... "How do you see anything? It's all gibberish."

Screenshot of a code editor, with the console open as the application processes the data and displays what it's doing in a verbose way.

Gluon will not be getting an Apple Design Award this year. Oh well.

It’s been nearly 200 days since I last recorded my podcast… well… now I’m at 0 days. Just need to get it ready.

Watching a SpaceX launch never gets old.

Everything rises to the same level of outrage. Even if it's not actually that big of a deal.

Couldn't agree more. Great episode! Lot's of touchy stuff that will surely outrage 😋

I have the urge to work on Gluon, but also aware that I am now paying for a server for Sublime Feed — sigh. What to do today?

Ok, for Gluon, if you could reply again then that would be awesome!

I'm testing some push notification tweaks to the way I fetch these on the server for Gluon. If you're interested, I would welcome a reply so I can test it. It all seems to be working nicely, but there is nothing like a real test.

Sometimes I go down a path... and I'm like "yeah, ok, it was good to go here, but let's go back". That's fine. Life is interesting. Don't be afraid to explore, even if it turns out wrong.

Ok, I think the Siri issues have been solved. My wife, for years, since we got married, has a “Wedding” playlist. That comprises over a 1,000 songs. She only has the one playlist. It always worked on the HomePod until recently (a few months). Now it has become clear… it plays a playlist created by Apple with the same name. Frustrating.

Always play user content first!

I wish there was a standalone device, with a screen, that just does Music (streaming is fine)…. Nothing else. Does that exist? Something that would play to Airplay speakers.

Building something of your own isn’t a guarantee of success but I think everyone should try it at least once You’ll think, do, and experience stuff you’ll never otherwise get from just working for someone else

aj, the creator of carrd, on X.

humans have unflattering emotions - anger, frustration, jealousy, etc you can’t claim to be authentic if your entire approach is to always suppress those

Seen this on X.
