I’m going to spend time today seeing what VS Code has to offer. I’ve been here before but it’ll be fun either way.

I’ve been solving the same problems repeatedly for years. An example from 2003: Converting entries from blosxom to Movable type. baty.net/2003/converting-entri

For coding, I was an Emacs user for 30-ish years, but I recently gave up the fight and switched to Visual Studio Code, which actually gives me everything Emacs did and more.

Part of my Dad’s garage. Unlike me, he picks a system and sticks with it.

The primary driver of my switch to Lightroom CC was that I could easily edit photos on the iPad and yet so far I’ve edited zero photos on the iPad.

One from the latest roll. My cherished Caran d’Ache “Sharpening Machine”. (Hasselblad 500C/M. Zeiss 80mm. Tri-X. Hand-held. 16mm ext.)

That PM45 viewfinder is butt-ugly but it’s the only way I can focus the thing. Otherwise, it’s a beautiful machine.

I’ve committed to using Lightroom CC but I still don’t love it. I much prefer editing in Capture One Pro, but I fear that the convenience features of Lighroom CC are going to win in the end.

It’s getting to the point where I’m almost starting to enjoy riding the Peloton. Almost. I’m happy this is happening because it would be such a waste to stop riding it.

@leeb They're pretty great, aren't they? Such a great find.

@chartier Agreed. Not sure what they're thinking. Trying CommentBox instead to see if I maybe don't hate it.

I added IntenseDebate commenting to baty.blog. I don’t think I like it. Makes everything look and feel a bit janky. I’ll give it a few days to see if that changes. intensedebate.com/

I cover my iMac and MacBook Pro cameras. So? This is almost-but-not-quite-certainly unnecessary. It’s so easy to do that I’m out nothing by doing it. Also, things are unhackable right up until they’re not.
