I should have known better, but after trying the bridge humbucker in split-coil mode again, I've switch it back to series/parallel. A parallel humbucker sounds better than a split to my ears and as a bonus, it's hum-cancelling too. Pretty close to a single coil sound.

What happened to Suchmos? I totally get that all artists grow and change their tastes, but their latest album is a dirgey sounding disappointment.

A reminder that you can read magazines online for FREE with your library card. Most libraries in the US should have a way to use RBdigital or another service. Another great resource is Libby for ebooks and audiobooks.

@manton I was changing the URL to one of my feeds and disabled cross posting. When I turned it back on, it prompted me for a credit card. I entered my info then it charged me again for this month. Is this an error?

I have to remember to never open any social media app during an Apple event. I’ll do better next time.

Captain Marvel was a fun ride! Brie Larson was perfect for that role. I have a lot of thoughts about it, but for now, no spoilers.

As someone who eats the same meal for lunch 5 days a week and basically wears the same clothes each day as well, I guess I'm not alone!

Not having a way to point externally with the iPad + ext display is similar to using the Touch Bar on the MBP. Always need to look away from your screen to use it which isn’t ideal or easy.

Moved 3 of my websites to https last night. Tracking down mixed content errors is a pain. I really need to redesign one of the sites to use modern standards. Code base is so old, but at least it still renders. Will use this experience to move the work website to https.
