Best possible outcome from Oracle v Google is I'm never able to write code ever again and I just stop using computers.

How is David Lee Roth's "Crazy from the Heat" not available as an audiobook? Dude _loves_ the sound of his own voice...

Infinite Detail has got me listening to 90’s jungle. No regrets.

Yesterday I exercised, ate mindfully, and drank plenty of water. Kind of a rough morning at work, but not the worst day.

Then, I went and watched that stupid US presidential debate while making dinner.

As best as I can figure, my cortisol levels spiked *so much* from watching that my fasting blood sugar this morning was ~10 points higher (!) than it normally is. 😖

It would appear that Lunchclub invite spam is the new LinkedIn invite spam... 🤨

I just hope this doesn't throw me off of my current rhythm.

Not trying to flex, but I've blasted through *a dozen* audiobooks in just under six weeks.

Alright, alright... Maybe I'm trying to flex _a little bit_. 😄

Fortunately, the book (Infinite Detail) is engaging enough to justify the more intentional listen.

While my anglophile ears enjoy audiobooks where the reader has an English accent, I feel like I have to listen at a slower speed (1.5X vs my usual 2–2.5X) in order to not miss anything.

Honestly? I don't hate it.

In fact, I hope they keep the pastels as the default. It's rather soothing.

I wouldn't go putting a production site on it rn, but I am very interested in playing with it.

DuckDuckGo's Tracker Radar (list used in Safari's Privacy Report) has found calls to Google on 82% of all sites. Facebook scripts come second (34% of sites).

Google Analytics is the most popular third-party connection (Google owns 8 of top 10 calls).

I disable caps lock on all of my keyboards. That way I have to be *deliberately* intentional about yelling while typing.

Totally happy to loop back around on (actually) reading it — slowly and intentionally — once I get a few more titles off of my pile.

Over the weekend, I blasted through the audiobook of Jenny Odell's "How to Do Nothing" at 2X.

I enjoyed it very much. However, as it was wrapping up, I bumped the speed up a couple more fractions of an X so I could finish it before I got through the evening's dishes.

This led to the realization that maybe I'd missed the point a lil bit. 🙃🤦🏻‍♂️

I'm "reported an ad that featured a Peter Thiel book among a grouping of boring EDC shit" level of fed up today.

COVID, isolation 

For the second time in 184 days, I went inside of a building that wasn't my home.

Even though I was in the doctor's office for _maybe_ 10 minutes — and was fully masked and goggled up — I still came directly home, stripped down in the garage, and took a Silkwood shower.

Not gonna catch my ass slipping, Rona!

Why do my dogs love basking in this gross, smoky sunlight? I don’t get it.
