To kick off 2020, I'm watching the Mandalorian and reading Morning Star (third book in the Red Rising trilogy). Both are giving delicious colour to a snowy January.

Last post for the year is now up on the blog. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 🥳

My smart alarm clock now has a dynamic alarm to wake up to that will be different every morning. It will use AI to compose a piano concerto on the fly based on the weather and time of day. What a world we live in.

So I'm having trouble breaking in the wild white Arabian steed west of Isabella Lake in RDR2. YouTube says to shoot it first. Damn, that's cold. But I really want a fast white horse and this is the one...

I got a new bike for my birthday but I couldn’t find any reviews on it. So, I wrote one - live on my blog now.

Started playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and the thing I’m most excited by so far is the various shaving options.

Just asked my kids what came first - the chicken or the egg? And it is blowing their minds 🤯

The new Motorola Razr is exactly the kind of futuristic shit 2004-me was expecting to see in 2020. 😮

Happy Halloween! 🎃 Oh, and a lengthy new post is up on my blog for your reading pleasure.

iOS 13 has been a ghastly mess but my website is looking good in dark mode! 😎

Switching to the Amaroq Mastodon iOS client. Looks like Tootdon has shut down.

New post up about Jony Ive’s departure from Apple. Two posts in one month has to be a record!

Wow, 🤯 Season 2 of “Dark” is everything you could want in a time travel show and more. Makes “Back to the Future” seem childish in comparison.

If you’ve been waiting over a year for the next installment in “The darkest timeline” then you’re in luck: part four is now up. To be honest, I jumpstarted the story’s progress by repurposing a piece I’d already written, so not sure if I have it in me to finish it.

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?
