Saw my first suburban tumbleweed today in Dublin CA.

Did seven mile (11.2km) run today, and feel pretty good afterward. Savoring the moment.

Is it just me, or is it kind of cool to see @Quicken for macOS being so actively developed once again? A phoenix from the ashes.

If you’ve ever wondered about the value of release notes, check this out: twitter.com/bburney/s… Also, write from the customer perspective rather than: “Works around issues with expansion in Microsoft OneNote,” as was tempting.

Purple Brussels sprouts again, but before cooking so you can see the cool color.

I’m home safely, and I assume it was a false alarm, but I can’t say I’ve ever been quite so close to a bona fide suspicious package before.

TFW your warm down after running in suburbia is blocked by two sheriffs investigating a suspicious package, then comes the bomb squad.

Shout-out to @EncryptMe (and @SmileSoftware alumnus @f) for making it safe for me to work at the dealer’s lounge while my car is serviced.

Posted some JavaScript for Automation (JSA) scripts for @TextExpander, including export (selected) groups to CSV or TextExpander files and search & replace: smle.us/gi5zl

Pull requests welcome.

Shout-out to @BBEdit: I need to sort a bunch of podcast names… I bet @BBedit has a tool for that… Yup, Text -> Sort Lines… Done. Thanks!

Happy Birthday, @macsparky! 🍰

Not sure about consensus that Apple software quality is poor. Haven’t been forced to restart Mac nor pull plug on Apple TV in over a year.

Requirement for Apple product release: pundits dismiss new thing as for (Those Whacky) Apple Fans only. Most amusing, and stilted, language I’ve seen for same: “folks committed to staying in the Apple ecosystem.”
