➽ I wish BMW drivers didn’t have such a douchey reputation. I have wanted a BMW since I’ve been able to drive, and last year I was fortunate enough to afford a used one. It’s a wonderful car, and I love it. It makes me happy every time I drive it, but I often feel like I have to apologize on behalf of non-douchey drivers everywhere. On the plus side, it causes me to be extra courteous on the road. “See!? We’re not all assholes.” 🙂

➽ Simple and opinionated verses powerful and flexible are the two modes between which I alternate. For example, Hey.com vs Mailmate. Or Things vs Org mode. Or Lightroom CC vs Capture One. At the moment, I’m in the simple and opinionated frame of mind.

➽ Now I’m wondering if I should find a way to include the daily notes in the main RSS feed, but not until the end of day. I could wait to publish, but that sort of defeats the purpose for me. Still noodlin’ on it. Probably something with categories.

➽ Most WordPress sites that are about WordPress are hellish landscapes of popups, sticky headers, SEO desperation, and a cluster of other things ruining the experience, and I’m sure they’re all “available as a plugin”.

➽ One way to become a popular photographer on social media is to pay pretty girls to pose in various stages of undress and write about expensive camera gear.

➽ I’ve added recent posts to the sidebar to help with the “losing sight of the rest of the posts” problem. I started digging in to how to exclude the Daily Notes category, but then found the “Smart Recent Posts” plugin which handles everything. WordPress is too easy, much of the time.

➽ Oh crap, I’ve begun thinking about moving even more content from the wiki to here. I hope I don’t hate myself for it later.

➽ This whole Apple-HEY thing has me pretty pissed off at Apple.

➽ Today, I feel like throwing everything away. I’ve started.
