I picked up a macropad to create macros for command line stuff I’m entering all the time all day. I love the new Macropad, but I’m limited to 16 macros with the Via software, and it’s a 4 layer pad. Need to figure out how to flash QMK.

Debugging and testing new code often requires multiple devices.

It’s the cat days of summer apparently.

Visited Root Glen at Hamilton College this morning before it got too hot. It was a beautiful family outing. Now to hibernate in the a/c for the afternoon.

It’s a ton of fun watching the creek project progress.

The crew working on the creak project were busy yesterday. They moved a lot of dirt.

Finally got a chance to clean out some empty fountain pens. Some of them have been sitting for over a month now. 🖋

A very welcome sight this morning. Equipment has arrived and work on the creek relocation project has started. A year and two weeks since the bank washed away and collapsed behind our garage.

We are now 4. Mom and baby are both doing very well. I think #2 will be more giant than #1. The lack of sleep in the newborn stage still sucks. Hard to believe it’s been a week already.

I’ve been an Alfred App user since they first launched. I just set up my first Snippets today, for git, and why haven’t I looked at this before? It is super useful.

Double batch of strawberry rhubarb jam. Our kitchen smells amazing right now.

It’s a great time for the internet. Not so great for the banks that are stuck on 1998 technology.

Finally caught this guy after it was teasing us for quite some time. Glad it’s not in our backyard anymore.

Good mail day! Thanks @jean.

Stage Manager might be my favorite new MacOS feature. #WWDC2022

It only took almost 6 months, but I’ve finally written my Moonman C1 empty. 🖋

New tech gadget has arrived!

This morning brought to you by Jack Roger’s self titled first album.

Got out for a bike ride early this evening. The weather was perfect and the trails were fast. 🚵‍♂️

I switched my VS Code font library to Press Start 2P last week, and I absolutely love it. Retro style, and with Dracula, readability is high.

I’ve learned more Terminal commands in the last 4 weeks than the previous 20 years of computer usage. I kinda like it.

Almost ready for a new journal. I have about a week or two worth of blank pages left in this one. Pen is an Aurora Optima. 🖋

April snows.
