• Goodbye Edge

    If you care about what’s happening with online life today, take another look at Firefox. It’s radically better than it was 18 months ago — Firefox once again holds its own when it comes to speed and performance.

    I’m giving Firefox a try as my default browser for work stuff. For home stuff, I use Safari.

  • “What kind of a name is Poon?” 🎥

  • Check it out: “Keep Moving & Get Out of the Way” by @roderickon on @cottonbureaucottonbureau.com Only 19 days left!

  • I fucking hate Adobe licensing.

  • “What do you need a fake ID for?”

    “So I can vote.”


  • All it took was trying to open a thirty four megabytes .csv in Atom to send me back to Sublime Text. Let this be yet another lesson for me.

  • “Beef jerky time.” 🎥

  • Tried to buy Monokai Pro, but got denied by PayPal. Tried to make Sublime Text 3 look nicer and failed. Went back to using Atom. I sure do like the built-in GitHub integration.

  • “Have you decided? Do you want The Good Package, or The Big Gun?” 🎥

  • Wow! A :12 on a NY Times mini. That one is going to be tough to beat.

  • It’s a new personal best! 0:14 on a NYT Crossword Mini.

  • Here’s a picture of my current work setup.

    • MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar
    • OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock
    • Dell P2715Q Monitor
    • CODE 87-Key Keyboard
    • Logitech MX Master 2S Mouse
    • Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk (Walnut)

  • I’ve cancelled and re-subscribed to a hosted Micro.blog plan a few times now. I leave because I think I can run my own site via GitHub Pages. I return because running my own site adds friction to just writing posts.

  • I need to stop looking at native Gmail apps for macOS. They’re all bad and I end up going back to the web interface.

  • I made a promise to my wife that I won’t drive recklessly anymore. That will help me to keep it under control whenever I find myself letting loose.

  • After review, that last movie quote should have been: “I’ll tell you what then. Why don’t you call me sometime when you have no class?” 🎥

    I may not always post the quotes accurately, but the gist will be there. And that’s well within the rules of the movie quote game.

  • “Why don’t you call me when you have no class?” 🎥

  • “Four weeks, twenty papers, that’s two dollars…plus tip.” 🎥

  • “All balls itch! It’s a fact!” 🎥

  • Moving forward, I‘m going to go with 🎥 for movie quotes.

  • “Or, this one?” 🎞

  • “If this were a movie quote, which emoji would look more appropriate at the end?” 🎥

  • “That’s none.” 🎬

  • I’d like to use the Atom editor, but it stalled on me today when trying to paste some brackets on 640 lines. It’s back to Sublime Text for me.

  • Style Guide

    Here is a style guide for kevrodg.net. This is a regular paragraph. The Markdown syntax will make it easier to write blog posts.

    Header 2

    This is a paragraph below a level 2 header. Is there enough information here to make a qualitative judgement about this section? Here’s a little bit more text. I could type more here, but I think it’s enough.

    Code Needed

    I might write a post that has some code in it. That would look like this:

    Typing ifconfig | grep netmask in the CLI will show the IP addresses on a Mac.

    Code blocks will look like this:

    def reverse(text):
        pos = -1
        rev = ""
        for i in text:
    	    rev = rev + text[len(text) + pos]
    	    pos = pos -1
    print rev


    Here is how blockquotes will look:

    This is part of the blockquote. This is another part of the blockquote. How is Micro.blog handling all this?

    This is a regular paragraph after a block quote.
