@ashfurrow Dark Matter taught me that the interior of every futuristic space station looks like a basement in a Toronto high rise, so anything is possible if you believe

Someday I’ll do a thread about how The Expanse makes creative and thorough use of Toronto as a filming location.

Show thread

The Expanse is good. I just wish they wouldn’t dial the freaking drama up to eleven at every opportunity. Like I get that tv is a visual medium, show-don’t-tell, etc... but damn. Things can just happen without the highest of high stakes.

(This is a general problem I have with contemporary tv, though.)

I’m finally watching The Expanse – it’s really good! I keep having to pause to look up guest actors.

Last night: “hey wait. is that...? could it be him? it is!!!”

part of moving home is me re-integrating into my family, and part of that is being their tech support again. I know it’ll probably get on my nerves eventually but in the mean time I am genuinely happy to be back in a place I can use my skills to help out (within covid restrictions).

today I tried to explain to my father the concept of a “custom emoji”

It’s a Swift-focused conference and the organizers have accepted the premise of my talk (to troll the audience about React Native) and it’s gonna be so good. Presenting on my birthday! So it’ll be a real treat 🥳

I’m going to be giving a conference talk in a few months comparing SwiftUI and React Native, which means I should probably start learning SwiftUI in earnest soon.
