Finished reading: The Girl With The Louding Voice by Abi Daré 📚

At times a sweet, coming of age tale of a young Nigerian girl; but also a sequence of harrowing life events that shouldn’t happen to a 14 year old girl - but in reality are all too common.

Found myself writing only the slightest of AppleScript snippets tonight. The language is now over 38 years old, and still supported in macOS 12.1 (Monterey). It doesn’t get a lot of public-facing love. A lost opportunity, or feature overdue for retirement?

You call support the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation in many ways, including by purchasing loud tartan underwear - why wouldnt you?

Toki Pona (kinda literally “The Language of Good”) has an alphabet of 14 characters, and a vocabulary of only a few dozen words.

Surely we could all pick that up? How about we give it a go this year? #TokiPona

A smart trainer, a spare bike, and a Zwift subscription make a great indoor cycling setup.

Happy New Year!

✅ Touch ID
✅ macOS Monterey
✅ skipping all the models with no ports and keyboard issues

Here’s to the next seven years. 🍻
