Third-party mail apps like Airmail look appealing, but I always end up going back to Apple Mail within a short time. I don’t know if it’s a comfort thing, and I’d eventually feel at home, but nothing else has ever stuck.
Sitting around working while I wait for fiber to get installed at my new place, which is clearly the most important part of moving. If anyone has a recommendation for a good router that works with CenturyLink fiber, let me know.
Having used Perforce for several months at my previous job, I am thrilled to be back on Git. Also, Git Tower is a treasure. I happily signed up for their subscription as soon as the version came out.
This poem by Rumi was sent to me by one of my meditation teachers, and I liked it so much I wanted to share it. This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all.

It’s a fairly basic app for doing Pomodoro style time tracking — although, if the idea of a “system” scares you, the app never calls it Pomodoro. I’ve […]
Ordered an August Smart Lock Pro with the keypad for my new place. Excited to try it (assuming the deadbolt is compatible). One thing I found out is that if you have an Apple TV, you don’t need to buy their August Connect hub, which lowers the price by $70.
When I mentioned the other day that I was interested in getting a non-smart watch which wouldn’t be so expensive I’d feel bad for not wearing it every day, I ruled out the idea of an automatic watch of any kind. It turns out I was wrong. There’s a bunch of options under $200. The ones which appealed to me the most were the Seiko brand watches. The one I ended up getting was a […]
