New post out! Also switched from a serif to a sans serif font. It looks great and is more readable on low-res screens. I use the OS system font instead of the Google Font APIs for an even faster load time. 😎

Inaugurating the new ZBook G5 I got at work by throwing some heavy After Effects rendering at it.

On the roadmap for wordbit.com: apex and www domain support, enforced https, dark mode support, and a new post of course.

Wow... Adobe Acrobat has a "Find and Replace" function, but not a "Find and Replace ALL" function. Are you seriously going to make me mash that "Replace Next" button a hundred times, Adobe? 😩

First run in my new Nike Zoom Pegasus 35 shoes today. Comfy, smooth ride and a very nice upgrade to my Saucony Cohesion trail runners.

Oh man, 2019 is whizzing by and I haven't updated my blog in a while. What to write about?

The hype was real - the new God of War is one of the best PS4 games ever made.

Fun fact: There is no user manual for Windows 10.

Got a post out about my first time trying VR. Hope to keep it up. I was thinking about another chapter of my neglected short story.

Belted out by four-year old this morning after I wake her with a gentle "time to get up my sweet angel": I'M NOT AN ANGEL, I'M A FAIRY!!!

Brandon Sanderson must be God's gift to bookish geeks. He's kicking off another series with the release of Skyward today. I still have to read Oathbringer (hopefully soon). I'm catching up on a classic and am reading To Kill a Mockingbird right now.

After a six-month hiatus, finally ready to publish a blog post tonight.

Listening to Giorgio Moroder's Neverending Story soundtrack and am transported back to watching the movie at school when I was eight. The whole class was literally in tears when Atreyu's horse, Artax, dies in the Swamp of Sadness.

After reeling from the sticker shock of yesterday's new iPhone announcements, I think I'm going to try squeeze five years of use out of my iPhone 6S. After a battery replacement and iOS 12's speed optimizations, it should be as good as new.

I've made it halfway through Dostoevsky's nasty final novel, so I may as well try to finish it.

It's over 30 degrees outside. Our site manager just bought the whole company ice cream. Nice guy... mad respect.

Started watching Westworld... gets crazy fast but Anthony Hopkins keeps it legit.

I thought Solo was an okay movie (3 out of 5), but what ruined it for me was the terrible low-light cinematography - could hardly see a thing. Might have been a theatre projection problem too. Whatever it was, it gets a 👎 from me.

Pop culture update: I'm reading Hugh Howey's Sand and watching Star Trek: Discovery. Good stuff all round.
