@adamsdesk I never thought about the library. I'll check into that, thanks!

The older I get, the more I seem to value convenience and low-friction over cleverness or correctness.

@spicy I still use Micro.blog regularly. I don't post "micro" posts to my regular blog, though, if that's what you mean. Micro.blog is just too easy.

Since I started using Minus.app I’ve been auto-hiding the Dock and menu bar on my Mac and it’s…not horrible.

Here’s a crazy alternate-universe (aka Multiverse) version of my recent post about Minus and Moom. multiverse.plus/jack/moom-minu

I just plopped stuff anywhere. What a wonderful mess Multiverse is :).

Working through an implementation of Johnny.Decimal over the past few weeks has reminded me that a search-only approach to finding things has limits.

I can’t begin to tell you the things I discovered while I was looking for something else.

@adamsdesk Now I just need to find a way to play it. My cassette deck finally broke a couple years ago so I need a replacement.

This photo of me was in the bag of cassettes from my sister. It’s me and my daughter in, I think, 1989. I should be like, “Aww, look how little she was” but instead I’m like, “WTF is up with my hair!!? Is that a mullet!?”

I tried an impromptu portrait of my dad today. I would be happy with it if it weren’t for my stupid reflection in his glasses. Glasses ruin so many of my portraits, but I still forget to check them.

Sometimes after dubbing an album from vinyl to cassette, I would draw my own version of the cover art. This is the only one I still have: Iron Maiden’s “Piece of Mind”.

My sister found a handful of my old cassettes. Sweet! Here are a few of them. I bet you can guess which one of these was reserved for the rare occasion when there was a young lady in the car.

@adamsdesk There's an electronics kit sitting there that is meant to be a project, but I'm intimidated by electronics. Want to try something, though.

First project of my “sabbatical” was to install a pegboard behind the workbench. Much like with computers, I focus on the process and supporting tools but never seem to get around to actually making anything 😁. Still, cool pegboard.

I still have this 1962 Minolta Autocord so I took a few photos of it, and included a couple of pretty embarrassing self-portraits that I took with it years ago. copingmechanism.com/2021/the-m

@docuguy The recent addition of catalog features to Photo Mechanic (Plus) makes it pretty powerful. A little weird, though. I do like Mylio but it just "feels" off so it hasn't stuck for me. For macOS, I'm watching Iris Photos but it's not a real thing yet: irisphotos.app
