• I’m sad to hear about Dean Allen’s passing. He was influential in my early blogging days. I ran my site on Textpattern and wrote some plugins for it in 2004 and Dean was kind of my hero.

  • I like Tristan Harris, but my guess is that making one’s phone screen grayscale has no significant effect on usage. I changed mine to grayscale because it looks cool…and I’m a sheep.

  • This is fun. A random sampler of brush pens from Jetpens.

  • Relaxing

  • After years without a decent pair of headphones, I’ve finally replaced my original Grados… with new Grados. Why’d I wait so long?

  • I want to use and enjoy Instagram, but I don’t think I can. Its algorithmic feed is awful, inscrutable, and changes often. Blech. e.g. www.thepigeonletters.com/single-po…

  • I know everyone has linked to this already but I’ve been grabbing a pencil more than any of my pens lately so www.nytimes.com/2018/01/1…

  • Got to use one of the new pseudo vintage stamps! I love them.

  • The seals don’t always turn out perfect but I like them anyway.

  • This is a handy cheatsheet for Ledger CLI devhints.io/ledger

  • Inessential: Evergreen Diary #4: Send to Micro.blog

    (Sent to Micro.blog via Evergreen, just like it said it would)

  • I’m working toward using fewer apps on my Mac. Not simpler or better apps…fewer apps. This goes against all of my normal impulses but I’m trying anyway.

  • For this Micro Monday I recommend @belle, who posts fun things about development, notebooks, blogging, and more. Also, she’s responsible for the Exist app, which I really like.

  • Going to try giving this one a good cleaning

  • Found the instructions

  • For a few years I put together a photo album from darkroom prints made throughout the year. Not sure why I stopped but I intend to start again.

  • Test post from Emacs to Micro.blog using [@hjertnes](https://micro.blog/hjertnes) new mb.el. If you can read this, it worked.

  • Adding to blocklist: “Dopamine”, “Silo”, “You’re the product”, and “Walled garden”

  • Came across this while going through (organizing?) a pile of old index cards.

  • I sure do love listening to records. Now playing: Moby’s “Play”
