Strava is my favorite social media, just a bunch of dorks saying nice work over and over again. Very little fomo or anxiety. Just friendly peer pressure to make some moves.

Advent of Code time of year again. Last year was learning elixir. This year I’m doing elixir again to test the chops. Dm me if you want in on a low key private leaderboard that will putter out because work happens.

Popovers!

Thanksgiving Kombucha! Cranberry-apple with cloves, cinnamon and ginger.

Twitter is arguing over a FedEx in a bike lane. Personal I’m pro biking for transport. If you want someone to help you get comfortable on the streets with a bike in Cambridge, hit me up. I’ll help you find a route or learn how to navigate traffic and the like.

Finally wrote up some impressions on the reMarkable 2 tablet. Summary love the hardware but the software has room to improve.

What git release/branch management style do people like? Especially for handling long lived stable deployments.

Latest kombucha experiment was a success. Cranberry apple kombucha ✅

Sneaky sneaky. What kind of slimy deal is this @verizon.

That sweet deal of paying $20 to get a $30 discount.

Some light pre-election reading.

Happy to have deleted my facebook many years ago now but the rot is real. How do we rescue the people left in the Facebook echo chamber? Is it too late?

Stress baking and making apple ginger kombucha.

One factor convincing me to get the reMarkable was their reputation of developer access to the host. Version 2 wasn’t advertising it on the site but it gives you the root password and SSH, a promising start :)

It finally came.

Exciting mobile power updates. I can drive my energy sucking Thinkpad P1 on the go.

Cambridge is setting itself up for a great future! Bike infrastructure is important for urban living and addressing climate change. www.cambridgebikesafety.org/2020/10/0…

Quick camping and biking trip in New Hampshire. Pushed the capabilities of commuter tires on loose gravel and sand.

Spot me in the news deliverying food for local residents in Cambridge! www.cambridgeday.com/2020/09/0…

Interesting post on paid apps: ia.net/topics/su…

I really believe in paying for software and wish other Linux users felt the same way. Software is expensive and we need to sustainably fund development.

Vote by bike 🗳

Post work bike ride to Deer Island. Got me beat.

Re-learning how to type on this and it’s stressful.

Anyone I know use the Gopher protocol? It appeals to me as a more structured, less cluttered and slimmer web.

Largest harvest yet!

Finding myself increasingly jaded. There are a million problems we need to tackle and corporations and people with money and power are in all out assault mode undermining or ignoring for personal gain.
