Found my bike helmet. It’s about twenty years old, by now, but never suffered an impact. Working on getting back in the saddle.

Yesterday our family learned the hard way that security cameras don’t see everything. And my daughter learned people are brazen and will take.

“…We have become the data we were supposed to be stealing or subverting.”
I am Gen X. I was a Mondo 2000 reader.

Pleasantly surprised today. My watch let me know my phone was in the car when I walked into my work building this afternoon. Not in so many words, but the obvious conclusion as I was heading to my desk and the alert popped up. As an ADHD’er, I approve of this feature!

We will see how pushy Evernote is on the new subscription prices… I have been contributing $5/month since at least 2010 for Premium. New price point for Personal is $7. Maybe I switch wholesale to iOS notes, now, with the feature set they have expanded to there is enough of an overlap to be effective

16 hours without power. Grateful for the workers who improved local infrastructure to bring it back. Super grateful for AC again!

iPad Air: being able to use the pencil on-screen feels better than hunting and pecking. But in Notes, I wish we had dot-grid in addition to quadrille ruled.

Apple Watch: speaking replies to messages is my new jam. Having the option to leave my phone in my pocket keeps growing on me. This after making significant reductions in the types of notifications I will allow there.

With respect to an app store, well-played, Microsoft!
Your move, Apple.

The Cutter - Echo and the Bunnymen
A second song Shuffle Play dredged up that I haven’t heard in a very long time. I’m sure this is the first song of theirs I was familiar with until I rediscovered New Wave late in the 80s. Yeah, I’m never on time. Later in the 90s at the record store I started doing musical archeology to understand what had blown my mind in the decade before.
Frankly, I unashamedly revisit the past frequently via music. It’s my favorite form of time travel.

A lovely night for a pint

This includes my Dad’s favorite chair in a favorite room.
I took this shot, visiting my mom, a few months after he passed away in 2015.
Naturally, the Photos widget chose Father’s Day 2021 to present it to me from all the images it could have picked.
To all the fathers, to all the people who have fathers, to all the people contemplating becoming fathers, this day is richly varied, emotionally. I’m sure my experiences and yours overlap at least a little. I feel you.
If anything, being a father has shown me so many ways to improve who I am and what I do in the world. It is supremely humbling.
On this day, I wish you peace, joy, and love.

Struggling super hard with organization. As an ADHD’er, this is career defining/limiting. I haven’t found the method or the tool that sticks past overwhelm.

Is it just me? On Windows 10, an Intel Core i5 can’t seem to keep up with Teams, much less other things you may wish to work on while in a meeting. Have run into this on laptops and desktops of different manufacture. I don’t have this issue on a Core i5 MacBook Pro.

Shout out to Tony, who I have missed these many years.
I explained learning about The Game to a colleague at work. So, naturally I’ve lost many, many times in rapid succession.
Miss you, brother

I do not have a subscription to read the Washington Post, where the source article appeared, but I appreciate the quotes pulled out at 9TO5Mac. This seems like an appropriate stance for technology companies to take, and I appreciate it.
Especially the sentiment behind this statement:
So that’s what they do. In secret. By serving search warrants on companies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft to obtain emails and messages that belong to our customers.

A dose of real. I’ve lived in Minnesota the majority of my life and I’m sure I’ve done this:
“the Minnesotan/Scandinavian behavior of being cold to people because you “have enough friends” already / you’re not interested in being friends, is ugly 😌”

I have been on a Harry Potter binge recently, having watched all of the movies again, and now re-reading the series. I discovered an article called Alchemy and Harry Potter which was helpful to understand many elements in each of the stories and the series.

A key to growth is to stop assuming I have learned every lesson in a given area. I rediscovered a resource I had mined in a previous decade of my life, then stopped. Today I was presented with a fresh perspective which gave me opportunites I didn’t know I had.
