the media, as usual given their preferred soundbite approach, did a terrible job explaining the nuances and complexity of the evacuation from kabul. here is a much better and much more complete picture of what happened 🇦🇫 🛫

you can tell the guys who wrote Jackson have seen some serious shit just by looking at all the annotations they’ve added to handle special one-offs, likely due to having to deal with garbage APIs powered by xml to json converters. kinda like the hell I’m in right now dealing with the e*trade API. anyways, hats off to the Jackson developers

watching this beautiful sunset unfold while a local artist covers Red Rain by Peter Gabriel 🌅🎸

Three months overdue but glad to see the administration actually using the power granted to them by the voters instead of coddling a bunch of horse paste eating conspiracy theorists 💉 apnews.com/article/18fb12993f0

looking thru activity monitor and surprised to find that apple's own SpeechSynthesis framework is still running as an Intel process, guess they neglected to build this to ARM native for Big Sur

not my best crust 🥧 but the flavor is all there thanks in part to local gala apples 🍎 and honey 🍯

linkedin dedicated time and resources to building out a copycat feature that’s now predictably shutting down. meanwhile their jobs recommendation algorithm, arguably one of their core features, confuses “software delivery” roles with all manner of delivery (food, furniture, etc). “engineering director” brings up a smattering of building maintenance jobs. clearly a company lacking a north star.

got tired of messing with intellij settings so i blew away my ~/.gradle directory and everything works again 🤷🏻‍♂️

tired of fighting w/osx over space on my ssd so i gave in and ordered a new macbook air m1, a first for me as i have always used pros 💻

apple finally offering all developers the same non App Store payment options as they do big players like Netflix along with a host of other long overdue changes 👨🏻‍💻📱 apple.com/newsroom/2021/08/app

while it’s frustrating having ridden shinkansen 🚅 in asia only to come back to america’s 19th century rail technology 🚂, it’s even more frustrating knowing that there is a plan in place to put a maglev line right next door (dc 🔁 baltimore) and it‘s being blocked by nimbys 🚄 youtube.com/watch?v=q_dzK9ykGy
