• Well I guess my keyboard needs replacing. Again. This time the A key is sticking. Everything about this MBP keyboard is shitty. No travel, annoying clicky noise for no reason, and unreliable. Sorry, but I don’t think I’m going to just “get used to it.”

  • We have a visitor at the office today. I’m going to try very hard to not steal her.

  • I didn’t know about Google Takeout. takeout.google.com

  • Smart devices aren’t

  • Pingdom may be fancier but I really like Updown.io. Works great and is so simple updown.io

  • “How To Sharpen Pencils” by David Rees (the number one #2 pencil sharpener).

    The entirety of chapter 11: “Mechanical pencils are bullshit.”

  • And speaking of pencil sharpening lunacy, here’s my “artisinally sharpened” pencil from David Rees. The the whole idea was ludicrous and I loved it.

  • My grandfather’s Bolex 8mm camera.

  • The Death of Stalin (2017) ★★★ letterboxd.com/jackbaty/…

  • Another one of my favorite shirts

  • Now playing: Nina Simone Sings the Blues. 🎼

  • Founders KBS 2018 is a darn fine beer. I like it much better than last year’s.

  • Lettera 32. I don’t use it much because it has a script typeface but it sure is cute.

  • Oh I see how it’s going to go. Not a great trend there.

  • A lovely Sunday night for some Larceny at the writing desk.

  • I was deciding between these two books when I realized how tired I am of complaints about tech giants and speculation about what technology is doing to us. I’m not reading either of them.

  • Nature’s perfect food

  • I’ve moved all of my static sites (other than baty.net) from my Linode VPS into S3 buckets behind Cloudflare. This was partly because I’m trying to improve my understanding of how AWS works.

  • I finally deleted my Mint install after I don’t even know how many years. haveamint.com ::sniff::

  • Another of my highest bang-for-the-buck photographic purchases is this film dryer. Purchased in 2009 for something like $40, it dries multiple rolls of film in less than 20 minutes. I’m impatient, so this is terrific.
