@fahrni what worries me is, by all accounts, the proponents of this move feel emboldened and want more. I’m confident the US will work this out but a lot of people will likely suffer before that happens.

Top Gun Maverick might just be the movie of the year for me. A sequel that delivers as much as it does after 30+ years, insane.

@fahrni take care Rob! Hopefully it’ll be only a minor inconvenience this time!

Apple Maps got better before Siri did. I didn’t expect that.

Very 21st century thing: delivery robots offering to “sing” Sweet Caroline or God Save the Queen (to celebrate the Jubilee) to you as you take your order from them. That sentence would have got odd looks back in 1952.

Link post on the blog to all kinds of topics. Some very serious. Viewer discretion advised. 

@fahrni I need to have horchata again soon!

@fribbledom many dentists use practice management software that do in fact backup their files to the cloud every day 😅

Gmail’s predictive text doesn’t deal with typos well. This while trying to type “with kind regards” 😏

@williamkennedy@twitter.com: React, Angular and so on have gotten a bit of bashing recently. So I wrote an article defending these technologies. Enjoy.


@fahrni also congratulations on your new role! (Although it’s been a while) How’re you finding it?

@fahrni hey - I’m good, just recovering from a bit of surgery (a tear they caught real early and wanted to fix before it got worse). How’re you? Btw the offer to share costs for Mastodon still stands! 😀 … you’ll notice I was a bit off-Twitter because I wasn’t quite enjoying it, Mastodon feels way more positive.

@fahrni from a colleague: “Wordle’s too much like work nowadays!” 😅
