Sometimes I wish I had some sort of diagnosis. Some kind of tangible thing that could help me grasp why things are so hard. I thought the ADHD diagnosis brought the last missing piece, but even with it, I struggle. I often find myself feeling understood when I read stories...

Yellow Lined Mouse Mat

1 year ago, for day 50 by Yorick Phoenix 🥁

I have used a yellow lined writing pad as a mouse mat for at least the last seven years. This doubles as somewhere to make random notes as I work on stuff. My Apple Magic Mouse started going wonky the other day. The tracking was jumping all over the place,...

If I travel to LA for the day (again) would Greta approve? Would I even care?

Travel (planning) Is Awful

1 year ago, for day 47 by Yorick Phoenix 🥁

OK, travel isn’t actually awful. Travel can be exciting and fun. Travel planning on the other hand is awful. Long ago we had travel agents. You would call them up and they would arrange your flights, cars, and hotels. They were experts at all of this stuff. Then we got...

There is nothing to fear except fear itself.         — Franklin D. Roosevelt. Today I took a tour of the disused Nike 88 Nuclear Missile Site on the San Franciso headlands. Apparently it is the only place in the US where you can visit a nuclear missile silo. Thankfully...

Keyboard Re-warrioring

The keyboard itself is slightly narrower because some space between the main keyboard, home keys,...

Two decades of muscle memory means I'm back to typing on my MacBook instead of my iPad. I gave up on my new Logitech K780 multi-device wireless keyboard. The functionality of being able to use it for my MacBook, my iPad, and my iPhone is great. Unfortunately, it is a...

New Keyboard

1 year ago, for day 42 by Yorick Phoenix 🥁

I new keyboard arrived today. Not sure if I’m going to keep it or not. We’ll see. It’s the Logitech K780 that I think @chris mentioned in one of his posts. I generally use an original wired extended Apple Keyboard. It has the same key travel as the original MacBook...

Just Do It®

1 year ago, for day 41 by Yorick Phoenix 🥁

I have a late-night tonight. Well I'd rather it isn't a late night and if I was doing the planning it wouldn't be, but I'm not and therefore I know that it is going to be a late night. This means I either fake my timezone (been there, done that),...

What am I afraid of?

1 year ago, for day 40 by Fred Rivett

Now that's a scary question. Fear is one of our strongest signals. It reaches us at surface level, causing the ripples and waves in the lake of our hearts. It's trying to tell us something, but what? It never directly lets us know. For the surface fear is only the...
