• I continually think of October as far away. Even in October, I find it hard to think of some mentioned October day as anything other than several months away, then my perspective jolts me into realizing that date arrives tomorrow.

    Not tomorrow, but next week.

  • Upgraded my two main devices to iOS 12.4.1 to have them feel new while I make due.

    Liking Shortcuts a lot.

  • Looking forward to when they space phone-length lens / sensors apart for stereoptic pictures.

  • Forty years ago Skylab reentered 🗺 Earth’s atmosphere.

  • “Because our laws frame privacy as an individual right, we don’t have a mechanism for deciding whether we want to live in a surveillance society.”

  • Another gasp for air, another escape from going under, it persists.

  • Just discovered that links or addresses of prior day’s posts change when they go to archive, i.e., the date gets stripped. Fun editing ahead of me.

  • If you do not already drink your coffee unsweetened, you should give it a try sometimes. After a few sips, the bitterness diminishes and throughout you get the full flavor it presents. I forget this and by forgetting my sweetener on occasion, it reminds me.

  • Ugh. Half asleep yesterday, my words sound almost robotic. Too little rest.

  • Follow up: I didn’t back it. I could not justify this one. It will hurt later.

  • Infringement Penalty Prison

    Company infringes on rights instead of paying some reasonable license or rights use fee. Taken to court after refusing to pay those fees, even after cordial notification and then legal notification. If found guilty, sentenced to pay a significantly higher penalty (than the reasonable fees) annually for some extensive term. Not “until they start paying the rights fees and comply”, but “until the sentenced term expires.” And they have, “done their time.”

  • Time to tip-toe around all the deceptively offered 401s, avoiding their tempting springs.
