Apparently air quality is down here today due to dust from the Saharan desert. You can see the haze from the dust in the air and beautiful sunsets.

Yard work done! Time for a beer and some tunes.

Morning walks

I love walks in the morning, before it’s too hot. Headphones on with some chill music, not too loud so you can still hear the birds. Occasionally you can smell someone cooking a breakfast from the street. Makes you wonder about the people preparing the food.

@espen Apple podcasts is just an aggregator of RSS feeds. They don't "own" podcasting. Yes, they like their RSS feeds in a specific way, but connecting your podcast to Apple doesn't change how your podcast operates. It still syndicates openly and you can use any player for them.

People want reviews on Apple because it's a popular aggregator, and higher reviews means more eyes.

Spotify "podcasts" aren't podcasts. They don't syndicate like podcasts and the Spotify app is required to listen.

I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time – when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few,... braintube.com/2020/05/05/i-hav

I have seen things you people wouldn’t believe. HTML tags nested 14 layers deep off the shoulder of a signature. I watched DOM beams glitter in the dark near the font of Verdana. All these containers will be lost in time, like tears from the CPU. Time to cry.

Folks under lockdown sure love to get out and come watch some newly hatched Mallard ducks. The boredom is real.
