I just exported my Fitbit data and deleted my account. (h/t @hotdogsladies)

Syntax Highlight Test:

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

I did a fresh start in YNAB for September. I’d really like to give it more attention for the rest of the year.

I’m going to try the No Signature option on my emails and see how I like it. It seems unnecessary since the From: field already shows it’s from me.

My head is roundish in this picture of my shadow.

Two GCN Trainings down, eight to go.

Adding Both Channels from a Dahua IPC Camera into VI MonitorPlus

In order to get both channels from a Dahua IPC-HDBW4231F-E2-M camera into VI MonitorPlus, select ONVIF as the manufacturer and ONVIF Profile S Compliant Camera as the model. Select the Shared IP Address checkbox and use Camera # 1 for channel 1 and Camera # 3 for channel 2 (camera numbers 2 and 4 are for the secondary streams). Each channel needs to be added as a seperate camera.

Queued some 311 today because, well, 2019-03-11.

PayPal was denying my credit cards, so I got a prepaid Visa so I could buy a license for Monokai Pro. It cost me a bit extra to do it this way, but I’m happy I was able to get the license. I like how SublimeText looks with this theme.

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?” 🎥

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.

  • Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk (Walnut)

I’ve cancelled and re-subscribed to a hosted 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.
