    • Book three of 2018: Software, by Rudy Rucker. 🌟🌟🌟
    • Current amusement: as I age, I’m getting a respectable start on “old man” eyebrows. But they’re much thinner on the outsides of my eyes than the insides, so the end result is occasionally a very Vulcan/Romulan upwards slant to my brows. I’m ever more saddened that I’ve never been able to lift just a single […]
    • Chucks of the day (57): Blue faux-leather high tops with black sidewall trim. #chucks #converse

    • I have got to start remembering to do this before the very end of the night. Because then I do weird stuff like this. (11/366)

    • We were going to Do Stuff today, until we decided the day was better spent relaxing in our jammies.

    • Face Analyzer Jacqueline pointed out the Face Analyzer. This struck me as worth killing a few minutes playing with, so I grabbed a recent headshot of me from when I got my new glasses, and sent it in. The results were something of a surprise.

It's bad enough that so much of their software is fairly malicious in standard day to day operations, but now they're actively promoting a product that, judging by its name, will gleefully and with great gusto go rampaging through your computer, removing the most useful pieces of software it can find?
    • Who are you? So. You're the head of a highly secretive company. You're known for being temperamental and very mysterious. The goods your company produces are highly popular, but they're developed in secret. When they're introduced, they're invariably accompanied by much anticipation, a media blitz, and fans the world over salivating over the newest products. Who are you?

    • Mac mini (and more) Only the sketchiest details so far, ganked from MacRumors' live update page, but…the Mac Mini is here.
