A moment of peace and quiet as I walked off the golf course a couple of weeks ago. #mbaug
Despite numerous attempts to read Dune over the last few months, I just can’t get into it.
Normally I wouldn’t be too bothered about ditching a book. However, when you see it on “must read” science fiction lists, you wonder if you’re missing something about the book.
Made the switch from Apple Music to Spotify today. So much easier to move about in the app and there’s the addition of the web player as well.
To get myself familiar with Ruby on Rails again, I’ve been taking some ideas from other web applications and implementing them myself. I started with Hey’s auto-filing labels. In doing so I picked up a wee bit more on remote forms and Turbolinks and the
I’ve been enjoying watching Picard on Amazon Prime for the last couple of nights. Just a few episodes in, but really enjoying it.
A paid tier on Twitter? If the benefits were right, I’d definitely go for it.

Friday night fun.
Pizzas from our favourite local Italian restaurant, a couple of cocktails for me and Jen, followed a few board games including the family favourite, King of Tokyo.

Taking the day to instead work on my product for a few hours.
Just downloaded iA Writer from the App Store. I forgot how wonderfully simple this editor was. Quite a few new features in here since I last used, but still simple. Love it.
Version 3.00 of my preferred typeface for coding, Iosevka, just dropped.
Star Wars meets Top Gun? I never thought I would see that happen but it does kind of work.
This demo for the latest Unreal Engine is absolutely astounding. The level of detail, lighting effects and sound add a whole new level of expectation to what the next generation of games will deliver.
After a lapse of reading, I’m back on track and finished Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo tonight. A good story and something a bit different from your usual fantasy books. 📚
The Last of Us Part II is finally getting a release date in June and the new trailer is just adding to the excitement.
Tantive IV set complete! Took a wee bit longer than we planned but it’s finally finished. Just need to find a place to put it now.
