After 9 years working on CF and Foundation, and having finally killed -[NSUserDefaults synchronize], it’s time for me to move on.

Starting very soon I’ll be working on the Swift standard library, with a focus on OS integration and performance.

Also this means that Foundation will soon have an open spot! If you’d like to work on fascinating stuff with wonderful people like @millenomi, please don't hesitate to reach out 😃 Sadly few remote opportunities, what with hardware prototypes and such.

Watched Blade Runner 2049 for the... fifth? time.

It still bothers me this movie wasn't more commercially successful. Such a beautifully shot movie.

I really didn't think they should do a sequel. I thought there's no way they could do it well.

I was wrong. After all these watchings, I only have two relatively minor complaints about the film.

How to Register to Vote: Deadlines for Each State - The New York Times


Tomorrow is the last day to register to vote for the midterm elections.



(it also helps that cable and streaming got the FCC the fuck out of the picture)

I literally watched almost no TV from around 1993 until a few years ago. No cable, just a TV with VCR or DVD for movies.

It's really amazing to me what has happened to TV during my lifetime. TV used to be really kind of empty calories; substance-less nonsense and overdone melodrama. Not worth the time.

Don't get me wrong, there's still a lot of crap, but there's some really amazing visual storytelling happening now, and the longer timelines allow much deeper stories than feature-length movies.

Really digging Man in the High Castle S3. Started a little slow, but man... really solid season. I wonder how long we're going to have to wait for S4...

(oh, and I'm not quite done S3 yet, so no spoilers please)

Serious and important plea: any US people here who have ordered medications from Canada, online or by mail/in person? Any pharmacies or resources to recommend? (I'd appreciate replies limited to helpful advice—thanks!)

So, to answer my own earlier question, yes, you can turn off the FEMA Presidential message, but you have to turn off all governmental messages.

My team at Apple is looking for a full stack web dev who will focus on front-end work. Link below, or feel free to send resumes directly to me. Private messages welcome, boosts appreciated.

Can you opt out of the FEMA Presidential Alert? Asking for a friend...

I wish websites could detect Dark Mode and switch their color schemes. I have sensitive eyes and adore dark mode, especially at night, but man, when I open a typical white-background website, it hits my retinas like a baseball bat of white light.
