I’ve gotten used to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, to the point that using the old 11-inch one feels small. Wonder how toy-like the iPad mini is going to feel like.

I played around with Center Stage a bit, and it’s like magic. Can’t wait to try it out during an actual FaceTime call.

Tried out Apple Fitness+ for the first time today, did HIIT with Kim. Harder than my usual workout. Going to try and keep up with it.

Went ahead and ordered up a big iPad Pro too. Trying out Apple Card monthly installments too because why not.

Yup, getting a new iPad mini. Wasn’t expecting to do that today.

Giving myself screen time app limits on my current time sucks: News, Unread, and Reddit. After one day, I’ve installed Kobo so I can read on the phone instead.

Found this one in the garage this morning. First one I’ve ever seen in the “wild”.

Pretty much took the month of July and August off from logging (exist.io, swarm, gyrosco.pe) and trying to get back into it starting in September. But it’s definitely harder restarting than it was stopping. Not sure what I’m getting out of logging all that info, but I’d rather have the data than not.

Kinda surprised they aren’t pushing more passing skills in Northwinds. Is AYSO Travel teams like AAU and pushing individual skills over teamwork?

Not sure how I feel about hearing the filming for How I Met Your Father just started. I think How I Met Your Mother speaks to me, and I feel this “sequel” will feel foreign to me.

I use Pi-holes at home, and sometimes when I’m trying to unsubscribe from spam, I’m unable to get to the unsubscribe page because it’s blocked by Pi-hole. So to quickly get around it, I connect to ExpressVPN, unsubscribe, and then disconnect. Unexpected benefit.


Had to delete TikTok. Too easy to waste time there.

Yesterday, placed an Amazon order at 4:38pm, shipped at 6:08pm, delivered at 6:59pm, via Prime shipping. During the order showed as delivery between 5 and 10pm. That’s absolutely crazy.

Over a month behind in my podcast listening. I’m a completist, yet, I’m close to throwing in the towel and starting fresh.

Now that I’ve got my 30 day photoblogging pin, I’m taking it easy on the photo posts. Now I’ll just post when I get a good one.
