Well that’s not very good: mrmacintosh.com. macOS update deleting local snapshots(backup files).

I have long loved the Escape Velocity games. There’s a long, sad tale about why they’re not playable anymore. This looks like a great project from someone who shares that love. Going to download it soon and spend some time flying a spaceship around:


That was a fun Super Bowl. Super stoked for Andy Reid.

The sermon at church yesterday was on 1 Peter 2:13-17. A lot of food for thought in there:

Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

I love this profile of Sal Soghoian

He’s one of my computing heroes. I’m still taking baby steps into automation but I want to think like he does.

Pro-tip from one of my grad school professors: if you’re reading something academic read the intro, then the conclusion. You’re not trying to avoid spoilers, you’re trying to learn something.

Understanding the authors starting point and the thrust of their message will help you understand what they’re trying to say as they develop their thesis.

I’ll probably re-read the intro and conclusion for this one and take some notes before I get into the rest of the book. As Marty McFly would say: this is heavy.

I’ve always distrusted Google’s point of view as expressed in the Chrome browser. This cranks that distrust up a few notches:


I have a lot more to say on this, but for now: www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/d…

Me, every time I start Frozen for my Kid: Did I just play Moana instead?

Design is how it works.

I love Spiderweb Software games. They’re huge, story-driven, old-school RPGs written by Jeff Vogel. They’re available on desktop and mobile platforms and they’re well worth the cost of entry if you’re into that sort of game. This might be the most Jeff thing I’ve ever seen.

If you spit your gum into a urinal you’re a bad person.


Not an original thought but I’m enjoying Then Mandalorian more than any other Star Wars property since Return of the Jedi. And it’s possible I like it more than the original trilogy. Maybe.

Happy Thanksgiving. Great Grandma’s China was a little nerve wracking to hand wash.

There’s underground pre-Thanksgiving Christmas decorating happening in my house.
