Well, one problem is that I define "simple" differently each day.

Alfred Camera, which I've been happily (and freely) using with an old iPhone 6, is suddenly riddled with obnoxious ads. Any suggestions for a local-first, privacy-conscious front-door camera setup? Can be paid, but taking the opportunity to look at what's available.

Dug out the old Thorens TD 160 and spun a few today. It's infinitely cooler than the Rega, but doesn't sound as good.

We need more youtube channels like Dr. John Campbell's. He's never asked me to subscribe, has no useless intro music/titles, gets right to the point, yet still has 1.55 million subscribers. Useful content, delivered simply. youtube.com/channel/UCF9IOB2TE

Progressive Rock, NWOBHM, and proto-nü-metal are the best genres of music.

Regular Zippo use is almost reason enough to start smoking again. Almost.

Finally admitted to myself that my "workbench", meant for maker-type projects, was mostly aspirational, I've started converting it into a standup writing/analog desk.

I wish Safari's pinned tabs persisted across tab groups.

Having my blog and my personal (org) journal in 2 side-by-side Emacs buffers is pretty sweet.

Org mode kicks Markdown’s ass all the way down the street and back.

One reason I use the Modus themes for emacs is that their attention to detail is off the charts. protesilaos.com/codelog/2021-1

The Bad Guys continue to win while the Good Guys are off in a corner distracting themselves by bickering about whether it’s problematic to use the phrase “Good Guys”.

Every time I think I want to dip my toes back into web development, the first thing I’m told is to type 1,000 things that start with npm install ... and I’m turned off already. I should just get over it but blech.

I love how I get to call my random pile of notes a “Knowledge Graph” now. Overthinking note-taking is a fun hobby.
