In what has frankly been a ridiculous use of several days off work, I’ve published a very (very!) deep dive into the current crop of Mac, iPhone and iPad email apps, and my personal pick.

My upload speed is currently 1.4MB/s. Is it odd that I immediately visualise this as feeding a stack of 3½” floppy disks to my modem? 💾💾💾

Rewatched the Star Trek: TNG two-parter Unification I & II in preparation for ’s Unification III this week. Can’t wait to see where they take this story!

Really looking forward to “The Last of Us Part III: Oops all museum flashbacks”.

CSS can help in these stressful times! My friend and colleague Jason O’Neil built this box breathing guide that beats all the silly iPhone and Apple Watch apps for this stuff with simplicity and clarity:

Finished Hideo Kojima’s “Death Stranding” last night. 😍

Probably the best acting in a video game last year was hidden in two hours of post-credits cutscenes at the end of a 40+ hour game. What an art form!

Me: “Your hip popped.”
Her: “Yep. I’m a hip-pop artist.”

Recording videos on your phone to share with colleagues/clients? Here’s how to compress them to a reasonable size for sharing with free software on your Mac:

Proud to have Erin Zimmer’s Melbourne CSS talk sponsored by Culture Amp: “Welcome to the layouts of tomorrow”

Re-watch of “Measure of a Man” and “The Offspring” complete. Bring on episode two of Star Trek: Picard! 🖖🏻

Rediscovering the value of my subscription as I’ve grown a bit bored of my music library and found little help in Apple Music’s limited recommendations for me. So much new goodness waiting for me in my recs. (I’m if you want to follow me.)

I do worry that the Web platform has gotten to a degree of complexity that makes it effectively unimplementable from scratch. This is an encouraging sign that there is new life to be found in this ecosystem yet.

@tootapp Tapping “Continuing from a previous toot…” makes it flash red, but nothing else happens. Should it? I’ve figured out that tapping the rest of the toot does reveal the previous toot(s) in the thread.

The “Move Editor into Next/Previous Group” keyboard shortcuts in VS Code have always triggered the system “beep” sound on macOS, despite working normally. I’ve finally found a fix for this!

This is a super handy editor feature, because it lets you instantly move a file over to the right so you can see it alongside one of your other tabs. This is a feature I use constantly in Sublime Text, but the annoying sound kept me from using it in VS Code.

My Logitech MX Master died. Had to switch to backup. This is no way to live.

Recorded a new episode of Elm Town yesterday – an epic 1h45m deep dive into the making of Circuit Breaker ( by its creator Martin Stewart. Should be edited and published in the next week or so!
