Apparently air quality is down here today due to dust from the Saharan desert. You can see the haze from the dust in the air and beautiful sunsets.
Yard work done! Time for a beer and some tunes.
I love walks in the morning, before it’s too hot. Headphones on with some chill music, not too loud so you can still hear the birds. Occasionally you can smell someone cooking a breakfast from the street. Makes you wonder about the people preparing the food.
Drafts 21 brings custom dialogs with HTML/CSS/JS. This is amazing .
Stumbled across, the Browncoats Mixtape and now I really need a Firefly rewatch. It’s been a while.
“Gross Easter Beer”.
It’s an IPA brewed with dragon fruit , passion fruit, lemons and… marshmallow PEEPS. By Westbrook Brewing.
I was a bit apprehensive to try this one. It’s definitely not gross.
My battery is getting low and it’s getting dark

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.

My workday is done when I close the lid on my work MBP. It’s extremely satisfying to close that lid.
Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.

I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…
The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance

I have seen things you people wouldn’t believe. HTML tags nested 14 layers deep off the shoulder of a signature. I watched DOM beams glitter in the dark near the font of Verdana. All these containers will be lost in time, like tears from the CPU. Time to cry.

Folks under lockdown sure love to get out and come watch some newly hatched Mallard ducks. The boredom is real.
Even the geese are social distancing.
How to revisit a beloved Sci-fi franchise, Picard.
How not to, Star Wars sequel trilogy.
Have been reading a bunch of posts about how the current forced work from home will help push companies into supporting more of it. Some of that may happen, but I think what we will see a lot more of is, folks getting a taste of what it’s like and seeking out more distributed work.
As someone looking around for a new bookmarking service, Memex looks interesting.
Another view of this thing I posted a while back. Seems appropriate for vision.
