I was going to read a book called I am Princess X that is an interesting hybrid of the traditional and graphic novel, but the Kindle version is locked to a horribly small font size. It’s legible, but I would never subject my eyes to a novel’s worth of text at that size.
More projection from Trump: today the man that can’t be bothered to read a single page intelligence brief and relies on cable news, balding racist lackeys, and Vlad P for policy guidance is calling our intel chiefs ‘passive and naive’.
A bunch of my tv shows have resumed after the holiday break, but I’m not super enthused to find time for them. Kind of on a reading kick for the last week or so. Maybe I’ll save them up for binging on the weekends.
2.5″ form factor ssd hard drives have really dropped in price since I last bought one a few years ago. Some 1TB drives are even in the neighborhood of the magic $100 price point!
Today I was going through my reading lists from the last 7 years or so and it’s amazing how many books that I feel like I just read that are actually back in the 2014-2016 range.
I really like the CarPlay support in my mom’s car, but the audio connectivity flakiness is driving me crazy. The interface is working, the phone and car are interacting, but no podcast audio is coming out of the car speakers even as the playhead ticks along.
It’s been a weird year for watching GU basketball. For once things aligned so I could watch last night’s game, and I basically dozed my way through the first half as they blew out SCU on the road.
I was surprised how windy it was on today’s run. Snow is on the way later, if this wind sticks around we could see some crazy conditions.
Finally tried the new University District Bridge on my lunch run. It’s a great option for bike commuters and pedestrians and I’m planning to use it a lot this year.
Discovered two really interesting open source cross platform note-taking apps this week. Trilium, which has a SQLite datastore and reminds me of TiddlyWiki, and Notable, a really nice Markdown-centric that could steal users from NValt and its unreleased successor.
