I’m writing stuff in TiddlyWiki, Markdown, and Org mode. This means I have to keep three similar-but-different markup systems in my head. And worse, in my automations. How many “capture this page as a link” bookmarklets do I want to support? It’s crazy-making.

This app/window layout is working great for me on the 32-inch monitor. iTerm split into two panes on the left. Safari in the center. Emacs split into 3 panes on the right. No overlap, no fudging with sizes. Everything always visible. Not much I can’t do with only this.

Mr. Noble, the person behind Johnny Decimal was kind enough to fire up a Slack for chatting about the system, at least until there’s an official Forum. He said for me to spread the word, so join.slack.com/t/johnnyd…

Hey @twelvety I just wrote this on the wiki:

I feel like I want to talk about Johnny.Decimal with other people

I wonder if there’s any interest around here in participating in a Zoom call to just sort of hash it out. Maybe Noble would join!?

Am I really going to have to reinstall the command line tools after every macOS update now? I didn’t approve that.

Ghost 4.0 is out. I don’t love their focus on “creating a sustainable business” because I’m just a hobby blogger. But, the new $9/month “starter” plan for hosted “Pro” is a welcome and tempting option. ghost.org/features/

I’m giving Mylio another go at being my photo library. I want device sync, privacy, a little AI, and I want to keep my files where I want them. Mylio does all those. mylio.com/

This is so cool. remarkable_news is a tool for the reMarkable tablet to automatically download daily newspaper/comic as your suspend screen. I’m using the NYT. github.com/Evidlo/remarkable_n

Just got back from my 1st dose of the (Moderna) COVID-19 vaccine. Around 1 year from “oh shit, a new virus!” to a vaccine in my arm feels kind of miraculous.

I assumed Minus app would be another anti-distraction gimmick but I’ve been using it for a week or so and it’s sticking so far, which is a good sign. minus.app

TextBuddy is super handy for all sorts of quick text transformations. I’ve only had it for a week or so and I’ve used it every day.

A Swiss Army knife for plain text that is there when you need it and hidden when you don’t. Faster than your IDE. Easier than the command line. textbuddy.app

Johnny Decimal is “A system to organise projects” and I find it wildly intriguing. johnnydecimal.com

I am unabashedly a fan of Rob Zombie. Rolling Stone says of “The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy”:

Offers the same disco-metal dreck he’s been peddling for 30 years.

I say, bring it on and turn it up!

I wouldn’t give you a nickel for an “original” Beeple.

JACK! Stop reading comment threads around any mention of crypto/BTC/NFTs/etc. It’s just morons all the way down. Always.

I’m not sure “Doom Emacs from scratch” even counts as a thing, but I’m trying it anyway: copingmechanism.com/2021/doom-
