This YouTube channel about methodically, quietly making knives out of all kinds of everyday materials has been going on for so long. Every video is satisfying to watch.
I upgraded to the new iPhone 12 Mini because I really wanted a smaller device. The OLED screen makes the colors in all my apps look so much more saturated. I’m trying to get used to it, but I can’t help but think that iOS dark mode needs to be tweaked a little.

I picked up a Fujifilm X100F recently and the color presets (“film simulations”) are good at capturing fall colors. Here’s an unedited photo using the Classic Chrome preset.
I’m also realizing I should bump up the exposure if I’m going to be using the JPEGs without edits. 📸
Through some clever reverse engineering & brute force methods of placing orders every minute, this app tells you whether the ice cream machine is broken at any given McDonald’s location in the US. mcbroken
A nice little tour through the recent history of font rendering on the web. Convincing-looking 90s fonts in modern browsers – Vistaserv.net
This 1961 ad for the IBM Selectric typewriter is fantastic. Commercials were so straightforward back then. This one is an especially elegant example.
Today, I moved from Input Mono to IBM Plex Mono for my text editors and terminal. It’s been a good 4 years with Input, but I need something a little more legible for my new display that’s further away from my eyes.
Plex has a flashier design but I find it easier to read.

Throat’s dry. It’s that time of year again. Almost time to turn on the humidifier.
Starting to see some fall colors…
Really tempted to get a cheap, used original Fujifilm X100 from eBay. They seem to be becoming collectors’ items and produce really nice images.
I’ve been a long time user of Sublime Text. I’ve bounced off VS Code every time I’ve tried to use it because it feels too sluggish. Should I just knuckle down and try to make the switch because that’s the direction everyone seems to be headed?
This 1986 MIT course teaches computing from first principles. It’s so far a nice little tour through so many techniques that I take for granted as a software engineer.
On-boarding at a new job is overwhelming. A technique that’s been helping me immensely is simply sitting with my eyes closed for 10 minutes. It helps me get my thoughts straight and solidify what I’m learning.
It’s only been around a year since I took this photo. So much has happened since then. We live in a completely different world.
Getting back into running 10 mins a day again. I fell off it for like 2 weeks. I’m trying to regain the progress I’d made.
Excited to start my first day of work at a new job!
I’m putting more effort into setting up my workspace. I need a proper office chair next but they’re incredibly expensive. Even the mid-level ones are way above what I’d expected.
Trying to figure out a way to set up my webcam close enough to my screen. I don’t want to look rude when I look at the other participants rather than the webcam.
When will it be possible to embed a high quality webcam behind an LCD screen?!
