I usually go grocery shopping Saturday or Sunday morning, decided the previous weekend by which day I have breakfast with my grandmother. Last week we decided Sunday, there is a snow storm coming tonight, therefore people living in Massachusetts for their entire lives will fall apart, freak out, and need to buy everything in the store due to some snow. Meaning my usually peaceful morning grocery trip will be chaotic, packed, and probably leave me without a number of items I have on my list. 🤦‍♂️

Why Does Everyone Else Want To Stop Netflix Password Sharing, When Netflix Is Fine With It?

For a few years now, we’ve noted that Charter Spectrum’s CEO Tom Rutledge never misses an opportunity to scream about how awful it is that HBO and Netflix have to deal with people sharing passwords, even though the CEOs of both companies have made it clear that they’re fine with it…

Funny how it’s always cable companies complaining about affronts to other companies, when the other companies don’t care. I cut cable 3 years ago and between Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, I haven’t found I’ve missed much. I do subscribe to NBC Sports Gold for Premier League coverage, but nothing else.

EU Copyright Directive to Turn Google into Ghost Town

Google’s search results will look like a deserted town, with no article titles, no images, and no news summaries

The screenshots looks like it forgot to load 75% of the content. Hopefully doesn’t come to pass in the EU.

I’m trying to find a writing app for Windows for blogging. Currently, I am using Notepad++, which I use for script/file editing. I sometimes use Grammarly because they have character counts, which is a must. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Weekly grocery shop done before 8:30 with about 15 other shoppers in the store. I call that a successful trip. ✅

Purchased a Mechanical Bluetooth Keyboard on a recommendation. I’ll also be buying a Pocket Tripod once the black version is in stock. Together they’ll make my simple mobile writing solution for grad school while commuting.

Since mid-December, we’ve been unable to migrate accounts to Office 365 and been back and forth with Microsoft regarding the issue. Finally today we gave up and removed updates from November and December and what do you know, accounts migrate immediately. Contact MS, and they say it isn’t recommended, oh well when they release an update that doesn’t break our migrations we’ll gladly update, but for now, we won’t be updating.

Debating to separate my short posts for Micro.blog out into a secondary Blot blog with a separate domain, then keep my regular domain/Blot site for longer Titled posts. 🤔

The Bose QC 35II were the best purchase I’ve made in a while. They are amazing for noise canceling and sound quality is great.

Finally getting around to archiving about 8GBs of email (~7 years) from my old Gmail account to DEVONthink. Takes a while for it to grab all of the data, but the import is fast. Once done my plan is to never log into Gmail again, which should be attainable with it all archived.

The last friction I had using Blot is gone. Yesterday the summary metadata was fixed to show the first line when the title field was blank, if specified. Now, I don’t have to edit posts after posting with Micropubs because they will now show on my Archives page correctly. 😄
