When I read the news these days I can’t help but feel we are living in the prelude to Random Acts of Senseless Violence by Jack Womack. It’s a great but terrifying book. 📕

Daily journaling habit seems to be in full swing. Now if I could only find the time to put a blog post together just once a week. Got to make some time.

Green Party candidate in Montana was on GOP payroll As the GOP base dwindles this is the kind of crap progressives need to watch out for during elections.

I just love this QAnon stuff. It’s Looking Extremely Likely That QAnon Is A Leftist Prank On Trump Supporters

Frank in Philadelphia.

I like Slack but I don’t like how much it costs. Cost was one of the reasons I was using HipChat. Now what options do I have? Hangout Chats? 🤬

My normal strategy of flying out of Newark on the first flight to avoid delays seems to be failing today. This does not bode well for the other four flights I need to take between now and Thursday.

Reading “The Three-Body Problem” by Cixin Liu 📚

I know it’s not indie but I really hope Flickr makes it.

The sky looks like a bad spray paint job today.

Drones are fun!

Tug headed out to sea from the Barnegat Light Inlet.

Weather in NJ oscillating between the climates of Tatooine and Dagoba. I’m ok with that.

Here is another way to celebrate the 4th!

Hey, Happy Independence Day. Don’t blow your fingers off!

Sunset, Barnegat Light, NJ Additional color brought to you by some wildfires burning in the pine barrens.

Ending a 48 hour fast this morning. Did it mainly to exercise an atrophied will-power. Positive experience and I’m going to think seriously about possibly doing this on a periodic schedule. Once a month? Once a quarter?

I’m pleasantly surprised about how boring running iOS 12 beta is on my EDC iPhone X. This is the most stable beta I’ve installed.

The fruits of many after-work build sessions. I did not contribute but loved watching the progress and now we have the fastest ship in the galaxy docked in our office. Nice work @hubcitymedia build team!

Pilot on flight to Omaha: “Folks we are going to Ctrl-Alt-Del the aircraft to clear an error.”

We are on the ground of course.

For me, almost nothing important happens on Twitter that doesn’t also happen in feeds in RSS.

Siri Shortcuts looks great. For those of you who’ve downloaded an iOS 12 beta on a device, I found this “how to” helpful. You need the tried and true Workflow app until the official app is available in upcoming betas.
