This Caran d’Ache pencil sharpener is overkill and expensive but I love it and don’t regret buying it for a second. It’s a wonderful, simple, and beautiful thing.

My working notebook (aka a sort-of “bullet journal”) is now a large Boorum & Pease record book (21-300-R). If you’re going to carry a notebook, make it count!

It’s been a while since I last used Mutt for my email but the keystrokes come back quickly and they feel really good

Paul Ford:

Our software is bullshit, our literary essays are too long, the good editors all quit or got fired, hardly anyone is experimenting with form in a way that wakes me up, the IDEs haven’t caught up with the 1970s, the R&D budgets are weak, the little zines are badly edited, the tweets are poor, the short stories make no sense, people still care too much about magazines, the Facebook posts are nightmares, LinkedIn has ruined capitalism, and the big tech companies that have arisen are exhausting, lumbering gold-thirsty kraken that swim around with sour looks on their face wondering why we won’t just give them all our gold and save the time.

Paul is my hero.

Posting this from the Micro.blog app on my Mac. This is better. A couple of things…

– I _really_ want to make the window wider
– Would like actual “New Post” and “Refresh” buttons in the UI.

Pretty short list for a 1.0! Great job, @manton.

My yard has a lot of Acorns, but this is really just an excuse to test the Micro.blog Mac app)

I don’t know what the answer is, but I do know that it doesn’t involve being mean on Twitter

Just for fun I brought back my old mutt config and oh how I love mutt. http://www.mutt.org “All mail clients suck. This one just sucks less.”

I need to find something to distract me from wanting to host my own Mastodon instance, because I really want to try hosting my own Mastodon instance.

All I want is to copy a file from my PC to my Mac without error. They’re 6 feet apart and it seems impossible without falling back to SneakerNet.
