Switch your family to Ubuntu Linux, it may be less confusing than Windows

As my family knows, I clearly prefer Linux over Windows, and if we didn't have the option of using macOS computers, we'd be using Linux, likely Ubuntu. With that in mind, I enjoyed Simon Frey's post "How switching my parents over to Linux saved me a lot of headache and support calls", partly because I…

A new, open source font designed for aircraft cockpit screens

I get a kick out of stuff like this: In 2010, Airbus initiated a research collaboration with ENAC and Université de Toulouse III on a prospective study to define and validate an “Aeronautical Font”: the challenge was to improve the display of information on the cockpit screens, in particular in terms of legibility and comfort…

Enjoying 9 Dead Alive by Rodrigo y Gabriela

One of our many, many Slack channels at Automattic is one that focuses on great soundtracks, and other instrumental music. We usually share movie, TV, and game soundtracks in the channel.

Along the way, she considered Bullet Journals. I wanted to get on the bullet journal bandwagon, but…

I'm not sure that I'd want to share everything…

“Create the kind of communities and ideas you want people to talk about”

I've had an idea in my task list for a week or so now, and I just haven't made the time to write about it, at least not as I originally intended when I read the post that inspired it. Jamie Rubin wrote his post titled "A Vision for Blogging in 2019" a few weeks…

My favourite song today is Like Gold

Although it's not the first time I've listened to Vance Joy's song "Like Gold", it stands out for me today. I like how the track progresses, and carries you along to the end. I really enjoy it. https://open.spotify.com/track/0IcYIjsfFEOIY1GI4t7dLu?si=zxxy9_6tTgCAoWgUITiWag I found a live performance in Portland, that I also enjoyed: https://youtu.be/6kc9zdW6mYI unsplash-logoFeatured image by Paulette Wooten
