Goodbye Airmail

So, after being one of the first adopters of Airmail, the email app for Mac, and then later iOS, they finally screwed up completely. Around two weeks ago or so, they started to charge for iOS push notifications for email - $19.95/year. Push notifications for email are free on any other email app. Not only that, they did it without a single warning, and they did it with an extremely annoying pop-up screen in the app itself.

Victor Mono Font

I just found a wonderful new font called Victor Mono which can be downloaded at https://rubjo.github.io/victor-mono/ which is a partial and beautiful cursive font for programmers. It’s completely free and it appears beautifully designed. I’ve been using monofur for Powerline font myself in emacs, but I might use this one for my terminal in bash or zsh to differentiate and try it out, maybe running gtop or the like. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Stranger Things 3

I finished watching Stranger Things 3 (Yeah, pretty much bing-watched it). It was as fun as I expected. Actually, it was a whole lot better than 1 and 2, I think.

Stranger Things and Dark

Today is the Fourth of July, 2019, and naturally Stranger Things Season 3 dropped on Netflix. Of course I’ll be watching it. I don’t want to comment on how good or bad it is yet, but having watched Dark for the last two seasons, it is so far much more complex and profound than anything Stranger Things is by such a wide margin that they are scarcely comparable. I’m a little tired of people continually comparing how Dark is a “Darker German version of Stranger Things”.

New Theme and More

So, I completely changed the theme and added a Disqus comment section because…why not? I couldn’t get Analytics working with the previous one, and half of the help for it was in Chinese, which was a bit exasperating. Also, it wasn’t very manageable as a log. I’ll have to add a gallery later.

Favicon

I had absolutely no idea that favicons could now be PNG files. Also, the whole hosting a web site on github with git pushes and deploys via Netlify is pretty cool. It’s making me reconsider my DigitalOcean account right now. I’m not sure that I need it if I have access to this sort of technology. I like having a command line for things but…that partly what I have a Macbook for.

Under Construction

What I need is a giant “Under Construction” animated gif sign from the early 90s for old times sake.
