Am finally the owner of a variable temperature kettle and I can now see what all the fuss is about! Green tea tastes so good when it's not totally burnt :blobtea:

I remember watching an interview in 2001 about Metal Gear Solid 2 in which Kojima mentioned he was inspired by playing hide and seek. I wonder if Death Stranding was inspired by snakes and ladders

Cybertruck is my favourite FTP client on the Mac

Over the past several months I have been chipping away at a client for iOS called Mercury.

I am excited that it is now available for beta testing! There's a sign up link at with only a handful of spots available to begin with and I will add more testers as time goes on.

This being the first beta, there are still some bugs to be squished and some UI to be polished. Issues and feature requests can be reported here:

I don't mean to brag, but today I saw two ladybugs ๐Ÿž. One of which was just sitting on the wall behind me all day.
