This is the bit I feel happiest about. Something like this should be in the standard library. It should not be this much work to get the capture groups from a regex match.

My phone has decided that the number 20 is not a valid input, and must always be auto corrected to 2.0… 🤦🏻‍♂️

Of course one of the best parts of any new hobby is getting to buy fancy new tools to play with!

Finally got the Runabout up on jack stands. Let the fun/work begin!

It needs a fair bit of work. It’s technically running, but it shoots coolant out of the reservoir and radiator cap. I plan to flush and replace all the fluids, replace the brakes, give the interior a deep clean (it is *grungy*), and maybe more.

This weekend, I purchased a 1995 Ford Escort wagon as my first ever project car. I’ve been wanting to learn vehicle maintenance for years, but until now, have not had the means or opportunity. I’m excited to get wrenching! I’ve dubbed it, the Runabout. (h/t @eli_oat for the name)

Well, this was short lived. Toddler’s hands are not very grippy apparently.

Digging out my old Game Boy to play while waiting on long builds was a fantastic decision. (10 points if you can name that game!)

My favorites from Cars & Coffee this morning:

1. Ninth generation Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
2. First generation Dodge Neon
3. Second generation Honda CRX
4. Henry standing next to a truck tire that’s taller than he is

I’d like to create a window with a layout very similar to this using SwiftUI, but I don’t have any idea yet how to do it.

I don’t like to cook, — and I’m rarely proud of the results when I do — but I’m proud of this little breakfast I made this morning! It’s nothing fancy, but it tasted really good. 😊

The fact that the playlist header in Music.app takes up a full 1/3 of the window space makes me so mad.

haha, this game is way more fun (and difficult) than I expected. Worth checking out if you like rhythm games! apps.apple.com/us/app/taiko-no

Got some KRK speakers and a sub from someone on Craigslist last night. I am extremely stoked to set them up this weekend!

For HomePod users, one way to at least partially stave this off is to turn off “Update Listening History” in the HomePod’s setting. I unfortunately forgot about this until just now. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Just disconnected my Thunderbolt card in order to install an OS update. Fun times. Good news is, it worked.

The new of Montreal album is labeled as “Christian & Gospel” on Apple Music 🤔
