Anyone feel like a WidgetKit question? Stack Overflow: WidgetKit configuration, one parameter based on selection of another parameter, or same on Dev Forums, whichever floats your Q&A boat. (Also, please don’t laugh at my example of Captains Kirk, Picard, and… Crunch.)
Someone with an inflated ego still can’t admit he lost. (Hopefully my last election #mbnov; maybe I’ll be able to think about other things tomorrow…)
It is somewhat puzzling that news outlets haven’t called the election yet. Seems about over to me. Hopefully tomorrow. #mbnov
Today’s #mbnov word is Stoop. My brain is on the election count, so every comment I can muster is related. Will I stoop so low to say that the current President will stoop so low and claim votes shouldn’t count? Why yes, he did that, so I’ll do this.
It just hit me that I haven’t watched a minute of television since Monday. I’ve had a very close eye on election results, but purely via news web sites and some podcasts. Interesting.
I’m simply astonished at the current state of the country. #mbnov (Hopefully I’ll be in a better mood once more states are counted…)
This summer I moderated two legislative candidate debates (via Zoom). Tonight I learned a snippet was edited into a YouTube hit piece against one of the candidates. It’s rather hilarious. I’ll post a link after tomorrow, to deprive the anonymous editor of any political benefit.
The #mbnov word of the day is concentrate. The U.S. Presidential Election is tomorrow. Concentrate on anything else? I think not.
The iPhone’s night mode never ceases to amaze me. Here it turned a dreary evening, two nights ago, into something photogenic. (Note to the future: New micro.blog prompts this month, with “dreary” as the first day.) #mbnov
Random Apple U1 chip idea: Auto-adjust balance of a HomePod stereo pair based on where I’m sitting relative to each speaker. I moved my listening chair three feet and I’m out of kilter, sonic-wise.
Suburbs of Boston, MA, 5:45pm. Turning the otherwise-empty second floor of our carriage house into a home theater. Very slowly. But the sound is now amazing thanks to an old setup unearthed from the basement. #adayinthelife
While doing research for our Halloween decorations (seriously!) I learned of Belva Lockwood who I’d never heard of. Holy cow, she was amazing! First female lawyer to argue in the US Supreme Court, first woman to run for President, and more.
Watching the mockumentary Bob Roberts instead of the debate. I’ll bet I haven’t seen it in 15 years. In some ways it’s dated, but overall it might be more timely today than in the early 1990’s.
Prepping for the holiday season a week earlier than usual, because the world could use a bit more joy than usual.
Space 1999’s premise is the moon flies far away, taking the main characters with it. Did they ever disclose what a mess this made on Earth?
I finished my rewatch of Mad Men tonight, which I hadn’t seen since its first run. I’d “remembered” scenes which turned out never happened at all. But the ending is as I’d remembered. Great show.
Crazy kids love horsing around. And, thus ends another month of micro.blog prompted photo posts. Good stuff.
Discovery Meadow in San Jose is the site of Apple’s annual WWDC Bash since moving cities in 2017. Here, from 2019, developers enjoy nighttime ping pong.
