And remember the most important part: you can sit on it.

Yeah, I recorded a video of my tv like a boomer watching cable news, so what!

@dan It’s weird to know so many people that have names on your TV. You did it, you magnificent jerks.

Blog: A few quick thoughts on the announced Netflix redesign.

It’s like the old saying goes, “There are only two ways to redesign streaming interfaces: moving top row navigation to side bars, and side bar navigation to top rows.”

@imyke at least no one is eating a rock, but maybe Spotlight suggestions aren't so great either.

A good post from Nick Heer rounding up some Meta stuff

I only mean this slightly in jest, but sometimes I swear millions of Star Wars fans think the ultimate measure of fandom is how long it’s been since they enjoyed anything Star Wars.

“Yeah, I’m a huge Star Wars fan! I haven’t enjoying anything Star Wars in 40 years!”

Anyway, I enjoyed the first 2 episodes of The Acolyte. Not amazing, but fun and new characters I’m interested in.

@matt I like when you really get into a conversation with a true fan and you find out they haven't really liked anything since Empire Strikes Back.

The fun thing about the Menubar fiasco is it gives you an opportunity to go through and inventory all the permissions. Which is an absolute pain in the ass in Settings, but whatever.

Like I have software named after a person’s first and last name for Karabiner Elements, and networked storage. I’ve got software from Artel Software Corporation, which after some googling is apparently the company that made the BorisFX software that handles Mocha. None of it is doing something bad. OR IS IT

Oh yeah, you definitely need background permissions for those. They both do stuff. Trusted developer stuff.

The thing I really like about Michael's blog is that he gets a whole running chronology. From the first posts about the signing certificate changing to the statement allegedly issued by original developer Ben Surtees today. What. A. Mess.

EDIT: Thanks for the feedback. I'm trying out Plausible. No more feedback needed for now. Thanks!

I posted last year about getting off of Google Analytics for something simple, and not creepy. I got that but now I’m looking for another alternative again. $5/mo-ish. Let me know what you use.

@cory @powerllama I'm trying Plausible first but I bookmarked your referral if I don't stick with Plausible.

Bartender 5 was on the old version from December 5.0.49. It was last used March 8, and now its permissions are revoked and it's in the trash. I'm not really going to rush to install anything else at the moment. This MacBook Pro is so old it doesn't have a notch, so what a "win" for me.

I guess they had to do something with the mountains of Thread radios they weren’t putting in the 64 GB Apple TV 4Ks. It must have just been piling up in warehouses from all those Thread-free Home Hubs.

People don’t tell you this writing trick, but the best way to catch grammatical errors and typos BEFORE you publish is AFTER you publish.

Someone asked me if this was a cry for help, and it has a table of contents so it obviously is?
