Is Mad Max Driving?

1 week ago, for day 178 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Having driven on the Autobahn @Rinrae, US driving is completely different - in most cases - 5+ lanes of people going at different speeds. Itโ€™s easy to find a lane going your speed and cruise. The Tesla cruise control controls are much better than other cars I have driven. It...


Armchair Driving

1 week ago, for day 176 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Days sheltering in place: ONE HUNDRED Days without ants in the kitchen: 0. Keyboarding: I donโ€™t remember. The ants are back. There isnโ€™t an antobahn in the kitchen like a few weeks ago, but there are new ants by the sink. The battle continues. I donโ€™t know where...

Days sheltering in place: (mineโ€™s a) 99. Days without ants in the kitchen: 2. Keyboarding: Played for my boss. When my boss calls, my phone rings, and my computer rings. After I answer the call often the computer keeps playing for a bar (or so) until it gets the...


Air Travel

2 weeks ago, for day 174 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Days sheltering in place: 98. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: Silently, I didnโ€™t turn my keyboard on. The air in the USA travels in mysterious ways. There are weather patterns, on shore breezes, storms, tornados, hurricanes and at higher altitude the jet stream. This isnโ€™t the...


Busman's Holiday

2 weeks ago, for day 172 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Days sheltering in place: 96. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: Not today. I try not to work at the weekends, I don't always succeed, in fact I very rarely do. Comes with the territory when you run a web service 365 days a year with the...


Does It Count

2 weeks ago, for day 171 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Days sheltering in place: 95. Days without ants in the kitchen: 0. Keyboarding: See below. If you play your entire repertoire and nobody is there to hear it, did I really play it and if I did were you better off by missing it? You would only know the...


Blinded: A E C A E C

Days sheltering in place: 93. Days without ants in the kitchen: 0. Keyboarding: With my eyes shut. Biking: 9.1 miles in 30 minutes Every day I practice the same few bars from the songs that I can play. It may seem boring but the repetition helps, I make fewer...


Science vs Religion

Days sheltering in place: 89. Days without ants in the kitchen: 0 (three ants today). Keyboarding: Continuing practice of the Imperial March Note: I may not actually write about Science vs Religion, but by titling this post as such it will remind me that I meant to write about...


Sometime Around Midnight

Days sheltering in place: 87. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: Yes, many times. -- It's 12:03 pm as I start this, so time to set my time-zone to Tahiti. It doesn't really matter what I set it to if I set it to somewhere west of California...


2FA

3 weeks ago, for day 162 by Yorick Phoenix ๐Ÿ†

Days sheltering in place: 68. Ants in the kitchen: Three (too many). Keyboarding: Yes, many times. I moved a spare set of speakers from the bedroom to my office. They were plugged into Alexa and she didn't really deserve to have a set of external speakers to announce my...
