"Cat Person" is Mary Sue insertion fanfic about the origin of Logan's Run: Gross, hairy, flabby old people over 30 years should be executed/"renewed" at Carousel, so only pretty young people with hairless, plastic surgery-improved bodies get to have sex.
RIP Jambox mini which I have been using for 4 years, 8 hours per night, as my white noise speaker, despite weak power supply and shitty bass. Last year Jawbone stopped software updates. This summer Jawbone went bankrupt. Now it won't even turn on, and they can't replace it.
Apple, @tim_cook, seriously, fuck off with these new OS version updates. Quit nagging me every day, I don't want High-as-in-420 Sierra on my Mac yet, and sure don't want iOS 11 on my soon-to-be-retired iPhone 6S.
Obligatory micro.blog photo test. Can't get it to show up as a share action from Camera+.
I have better coffee at home, but I like a trashy double tall hazelnut latte when I'm out.
To make it easier to see what's important in my blog, to cut away the noise, I've added a star category. Still thinking about how to surface that better, especially for new readers.
So I submitted a new build of Perilar today, fixing 64-bit and iPhone X issues. Got a rejection, for mentioning "unreleased hardware". The iPhone X emulator is in the standard SDK, and has significant UI issues… but we can't say that in the update. Sigh, Apple.
AIM is being shut down and the Kids Today™ are sad. LiveJournal was driven under by Facebook, then bought by Russians and murdered for being gay. ICQ is still going, but nobody uses it. I miss USENET 🙁 . Blogs & blogrings were killed by Twitter but some of us are posting again.
I like the '90s raytraced Geocities aesthetic and clearly Dropbox does, too.
So I sit down to code, and get maybe 30 minutes in, and BAM, interruption. Sit back down and growl and swear a lot, get back into the zone, and BAM, another interruption. Growl, gonna go play games where I murder people.
So here's today's music:
- Escape From Noise, by Negativland - me & my friends listened to this album so many times in college it's completely wired into my head.
Aside: Posted this with the micro.blog client, which now does long posts. I went into the WP dashboard to add categories, but it'd be just fine for most blogging.
