Installing elementary OS in VMWare to see if I could live with it. I’ve heard only great things about it.

The Plain Text Project:

Do you need big, feature-packed, and sometimes complex tool for your work, to stay organized, or keep track of your tasks?
Maybe not.
Maybe all you need is plain text.

Great resource on using plain text files.

How is everyone keeping SSH keys in sync across multiple computers these days? I have about 7 VPSs I’m using on a regular basis now and I keep fearing I’ll miss one when moving to a new computer.

// @jack @twelvety Only because I know you both use VPSs.

Added another 5 years to my Standard Notes Extended Plan with the Black Friday 40% off deal. Subscribed until 01 August 2029.

I found the ending of The Americans to be rather disappointing. I would preferred to have a time lapse to the future, to see where the plot lines were going. Over all a very good show.

Hoping for a new alpha of TheBrain today, current version has a lot of errors/crashes.

I might have a tiny AirPods addiction problem.

Sprint accidentally didn’t register I returned my previous iPhone, so they tried to charge me a purchase device charge ($275) and no return fee ($215). I called them out on it, and they removed the charges and credited me this month’s bill. At least they made up for it.

Didn’t realize my AirPods case was dead last night so my AirPods didn’t charge. Thankfully had my power brick and within 30 minutes the case was at 50% and the AirPods got to 100% in 15-20.

Back to using Brave as my main browser on macOS. Due to Safari 13 disabling some very useful extensions, and Brave’s ability to disable blocking Cross-Tracking on specific sites, it is more functional for me.

I found Downie on SetApp today and am really happy with it. You give it a URL to a video and it will download the video, works on YouTube, Vimeo, and other sites. Definitely recommended if you need to download any video.

I haven’t bought a computer other than Macs since I started buying them in 2007. I’m currently investigating a Dell XPS 15, I use one at work and it’s amazing. The same spec’d MacBook Pro (which doesn’t exist) would be about $4500 where this is $2500. Still researching though. 🤔
