The “Quarantine” episode of Mythic Quest was brilliant! Excellent TV.

I've seen anecdotal evidence that macOS Catalina is slow to launch apps, but it also seems to be slow to switch between already-running apps? cmd-tabbing between different apps on a 2018 MacBook Pro sometimes takes a few seconds to show a winodw. sigpipe.macromates.com/2020/ma

This was well researched, well written, and a very captivating read: When SimCity got serious: the story of Maxis Business Simulations and SimRefinery obscuritory.com/sim/when-simci

It was a difficult decision, but I finally retired my oldest open-source project: github.com/joshdick/miniProxy

For @incanus @zorn: Here’s my slightly over-engineered “Today” perspective. Was thinking about blogging about this at some point. Flagged stuff is “must do today” and appears on top, stuff tagged Visible appears underneath and is optional. (With attached image this time.)

The only thing I want to know about the Magic Keyboard before mine arrives: Is it stable enough to use it on my lap on the couch? (None of Apple's previous iPad keyboards were.)

Better Call Saul is hands down the best show on television right now. Everything about it — the casting/acting, the writing, the cinematography — is excellent.

The New York Times Magazine has an excellent profile of Weird Al Yankovic. Definitely worth reading. nytimes.com/2020/04/09/magazin

Animal Crossing: New Horizons would be much more enjoyable for me if it had a feature to highlight the currently-focused ground tile. Especially since picking the wrong tile prematurely wears out your tools.

Just did a major cleanup of my "micropub for static sites" tool, microstat. Includes new configuration options for tags, for better Hugo support! github.com/joshdick/microstat

I'm having trouble concentrating on science animations right now, so instead here are some screenshots from my favourite document on the planet.

Somebody decided to invite Dr. Rishi Desai onto Fox.

I don’t think they’ll be asking him back.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
