Flowers. Still testing the new lens on anything within range.

This is genius. Why didn’t I know about this sooner.

Shooting 8mm film is fun once in a while but it’s too expensive to do very often. And the quality, while fun and nostalgic and all, is pretty bad.

I prefer ordering books from bookshop.org, but my last order took 29 days to arrive. I can live without “2-day Prime Shipping” but waiting a month is pushing the limits of my willingness to trade convenience for the better alternative.

I’ve gone and changed the (Ghost) theme at copingmechanism.com and y’all are going to hate it. :)

“Synthesizing knowledge” oh FFS I think what you mean is “playing with Roam”

A few notes about the new lens: copingmechanism.com/2020/leic…

The size difference between the 2 Leica 35mm Summicrons (M vs SL) is kind of nuts.

It’s useless, but I can’t bring myself to throw it away.

I could watch flashmobs do this all day every day and I’d still cry every time: twitter.com/RexChapma…

Still not convinced I’ll be replacing the HHKB. www.baty.net/2020/can-…

The variable-resistance keys on the Realforce R2 Keyboard may be a little too variable. The pinky keys are supposed to be easier to press but I often accidentally type a “;” just by resting my hands on the home row.

I may have finally found the best way to manage my local TiddlyWiki files: www.baty.net/2020/savi…

No prize inside. Robbed! 😩

Your job is probably not the same as Cal Newport’s job.

Love this from Simon Collison about personal websites: colly.com/articles/…

Nightmare scenario that just occurred to me: The COVID-19 vaccine has a delayed but debilitating side effect and in two weeks our entire healthcare system is decimated due to lack of available personnel. Great, now I get to think about that all day.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who despises notifications in Big Sur. twitter.com/marcoarme…

I wanted to try one of those newfangled Apple Fitness workouts but by the time all 3 devices had finished the required OS updates I’d already lost interest

Things got easier for me once I stopped caring whether the apps I want to use are also available on iOS. Removing that requirement has been liberating.

Confession: Reaction videos are my favorite thing and I watch them for hours

I know there are a few Fuji users here, so if you’re interested in any of my X-T3 kit and lenses, let me know. Listed on FM here: www.fredmiranda.com/forum/top…
