I know the USPS has been having issues, but WTF. I live in DC and NH is farther away than NY.

I got a physical copy of Super Mario 3D All-Stars for Christmas. Should I keep it new-in-box, buy the digital version, then re-sell the cartridge once it’s no longer available? Or just open the box and just use it?

The Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad would be SO MUCH MORE MAGICAL if it could orient the iPad in portrait mode.

Doesn’t even have to close in portrait. Just needs magnets aligned so I can put it in portrait when I want to.

Looks like Amazon is retiring the Goodreads API, which just another step towards basically abandoning Goodreads and folding it into some other Amazon service I guess: joealcorn.co.uk/blog/2020/good

My advice? Get off Goodreads while you still can (ie export your content) and move over to StoryGraph: beta.thestorygraph.com

A black-owned startup finally developing a viable alternative to Goodreads. Fuck yeah!

(Why not LibraryThings? Because, guess what.. it’s also owned by Amazon!)
