I started watching Strange New Worlds.

I think the story & tragedy of Captain/Admiral Pike is one of the more interesting things the writers could have chosen to explore.

I'm only one episode in, and it seems... okay!

Those are really great news! If you have a reason to use a commercial VPN instead of the anonymity network, @mullvadnet seems to be a good choice.


Saw this on twitter and it's absolute spot on. It's ridiculous.

Idea. Chess game. If you make a good move, the game says: IMCHESSIVE.

Airport experience.

Taxi driver citing UN resolutions from the 70s in a bid to tell me how government controls the weather +the usual conspiracies.

Longest security line I've seen in my life.

Missed my flight by 4 minutes.

Not getting another taxi.

I think the Apple Watch's walkie talkie feature is the closest thing we have to a Star Trek comm badge today.

BMW/Mini quoted me $500 to do this job.

Instead, I bought a nice soldering station for $250 and a battery for $9.

I used a soldering iron for the first time tonight. I'm happy to report that it was a success.

My shitly designed bmw key fob now has a new battery and works again.
