I saw a priority list for a business the other day. It had 37 items on it. This was for a *quarter*. Luckily only the first 30 or so were needed for the MVP! I feel like I’m in a horrorshow episode of Back to Work.

Currently in a meeting that has a full room attending and 102 remote participants.

A short story about fall detection in the new Apple Watch: Over a year ago, my mother -in-law suffered a fall and lost part of her memory. We don’t know how she fell or what she did over the 3 days that she was alone, just that her back was covered in bruises and she had a fractured skull. She’s recovered, but lost much of her sense of smell and taste. It could have been much, much worse. Fall detection could have ensured that she got immediate help. This feature will save lives.

People keep mentioning that they want the iPhone SE to go away so we get to stop supporting that 4" screen size. But pretty much everyone I know over 50 enables the zoomed display when they set up their phone because it looks better. That resolution will be here a while.

Had a good AR app idea, not sure if I’ll have time to make it. Gotta do these side projects one at a time.

My 30s are really hitting. Got stuck in a lawncare YouTube trance last night.

Today is one of those days. Had to disable the main thread checker on my unit test target to get this test to work, but by God, it worked.

Officially signed up for my second half marathon, this one at Disney World. It’s paired with a 10K the day before, since a) I’m a glutton for punishment and b) there’s an extra medal if you do both and I am a sucker for extra medals.

I’m eating deconstructed s’mores (which means I’m eating graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows from the bag)

Apple Watch aside, is “mobile devices are constrained” still a worthwhile consideration? The latest-generation iPhones are basically small laptops, performance-wise. Designing a system from the start to use less memory on phones sure seems like a premature optimization. Unless you know you’re going to be using hundreds of megabytes of data, maybe just try to describe your data clearly?

Reading a book on some programming topic, when I see the author say that a particular way of doing things is "recommended," I want to know why. Given two approaches that work, why pick one over the other? Even in a footnote or appendix, it really helps to see how you arrived at that conclusion.

It's so hard to discern actual toxic people online from satire. At this point I try not to engage in the latter for fear of being mistaken for the former.

If you talk about sex on Mastodon is that tooting your own horn?

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.
