home office breakthrough 

Of course, even with 16GB RAM, there’s a limit to how many apps can run at the same time on my 6-year old Macbook Pro...

But I’m pretty happy with the set-up in any case.

home office breakthrough 

A sudden revalation: I finally discovered how to use the MacOS multiple desktops function! I know have setup with two screens and multiple virtual desktops on each -- and two og the buttons on my Logitech vertical mouse programmed to quickly scoll between them.

It's like a whole new world! I spend two minutes at the start of the day setting up desktops with the things I need for that day, and...just work.

Ah; life's simple pleasures.

And then I noticed the YouTube link in the discogs record, and now my productivity is shot as I'm listening to sea shanties and am transported back to being 9 years old...

When I was a child, my parents had this record: discogs.com/The-Men-Of-The-Rob

I think I played it just about every day (and probably drove my parents crazy...)

I am just loving the current sea shanty revival.

This is very much worth thinking about given the current events:

My prediction for 2021: while everyone’s got their eye on the pandemic the climate crisis will explode and make it seem trivial.

At this time of year, I always feel a need to show off the surroundings where I live. It seems like this area was made for winter... The cloudy day was January 1st, the sunny day the 3rd.

For those of you in more southerly latitudes; the dawn sky picture is taken at 8.50 am, about 40 min. before sunrise.

Ponder, for a moment, the relationship between these two things.

Thankfully there's enough left for tonight's birthday dinner. (Mine; I'm 55 today).

Home made egg nog with spiced rum. Now it feels like christmas is nearing.

Since Amazon is evil af and also climate change, i recommend spending the time it takes to find independently owned stores for the regular stuff. I use geniallokal.de for (new) books, rebuy or green panda for electronics (also refurbished), Etsy for random stuff. Yeah it's not as convenient having multiple sites but ffs Amazon has absolutely jumped the shark on corporate douchebaggery and supporting the little guys is worth it. Vote with your money ;)

The forecast tells me the sun is supposed to come out tomorrow. I haven’t seen it since December 1st β€” but we’ve had lots of lovely snow!
