Just marked 667 items in NetNewsWire as read. As the year comes to a close, it's nice to wipe some slates clean and start over.

Over on my WriteFreely-specific blog, I wrote about building the Share-from-Safari action extension in (mostly) SwiftUI — now available in version 1.0.8! write.as/angelo/building-the-w

I sold my old Marshall and am now shopping for a smaller practice amp. Looking at either a Fender Hot Rod Series Pro Junior IV (mmm, tubes) or a Yamaha THR30II — any others that I should try out?

For half the price (-ish), the Orange Crush 35RT looks really nice too 🤔

Current status: Sipping coffee, watching the kitten who’s perched on the windowsill, trying to catch the big fluffy snowflakes falling outside.

It's , so please enjoy this photo of our kitten Merlin. He's nearly 8 months old, just shy of 9½ lbs, and super affectionate. angelostavrow.blog/tag:Nationa

There's a point where you realize that you can't see if you've adequately cleaned your reading glasses without putting on your reading glasses.

Every morning, Merlin plunks himself on my desk, between me and my computer monitor, to hunt the elusive mouse cursor.

Sometimes, the single most important thing to do in the morning is: sit on the couch, with the kitten curled up on my lap, purring, as I sip my coffee.

Wrapping up some work on improvements to WriteFreely for iOS 15. This should also make navigation work more smoothly in iOS 14, too!

Renaming “Do Not Disturb” to “Focus” in iOS 15, and expanding how the feature works, is very cool.

Allowing developers to register notifications as “Time Sensitive” to break through Focus, without giving users the ability to report apps that abuse this feature, is… less cool.

If you're running the WriteFreely for Mac beta, check for test version updates! You should find one for v0.6.0, which now lets you restore the window by clicking on the app's icon in the Dock, plus fixes a potential crashing bug.
