• I should use bluesky more. And Mastodon, for that matter. Threads kind of swept me along in a constant stream of interactions, and I basically forgot to login to most other places.

  • Holy shit Barbie was like, really, really good

  • Off to see Barbie today, dressed head to toe in black. Not as some sort of statement you see, that’s just my wardrobe ☠️

  • Finally watched Red Dwarf series 9, and it was… a thing? Found it a very strange show to watch. Despite following a lot of the formula, it didn’t feel like Red Dwarf, but more like a nostalgic tribute to it. Gets a bonus point for all the Blade Runner references though

  • I’m watching the counter of subreddits “going dark” (i.e. private and inaccessible) at Reddark tick up with a slight sense of satisfaction. Do I think the Reddit protest will achieve anything permanent? No. But sometimes the symbolism is enough to spark joy.

  • I’m giving my FDM printer its first run-out for 3-4 months, as I’m finding myself surprisingly short on 90mm round miniature bases.

    🤞🏻 it Just Works™ and I don’t need to faff around with anything, as I really don’t have time for troubleshooting today!

  • I need to revamp an ancient PHP app I wrote for a local company over 12 years ago. I haven’t completely settled on how I want to go about it (because, to be honest, it’s a bit daunting) - but at least this time around I have .NET as an option!

  • Currently wiping my Reddit history, prior to deleting my account. I’m having to use a tool called PowerDeleteSuite to edit + delete posts and comments, because Reddit doesn’t have a “delete my data” option built-in.

  • Well, I guess I won’t be using Reddit any more.

    Incredibly detailed post from Christian Selig about what’s happening with Reddit and 3rd-party apps: https://reddit.com/r/apolloapp/comments/144f6xm/apollo_will_close_down_on_june_30th_reddits/

  • Unasked for quick thoughts on the Apple Vision Pro:

    • It looks sci-fi AF.
    • I’m intrigued and would try it out
    • Can’t wait to see what it’s like in 3-4 iterations
    • I kinda hope it lives up to the hype
    • Won’t be buying one

  • I restored my iPad to factory-fresh, as it was running incredibly slow. Doing so reset my chosen Siri voice across all my devices, from Irish voice 2, to British voice 1. That seems like a less than ideal thing to happen. Hopefully that’s the only setting that reset!

  • For the first time in years, I have no idea what to expect from WWDC (apart from the yearly OS updates). I’ve been so steeped in the Microsoft ecosystem for the last couple of years that my attention to the Mac has really dwindled.

  • I’m having one of those days where I just can’t get out of the gate on any task. Not sure it’s a motivation, focus, or other problem, but it’s definitely a “lights are on, but no one is home” type of feeling.
