Getting two oil boilers replaced with gas next week, and I’m feeling clever for timing the oil burn so I have one empty tank and one only 1/8 full. 🔥

The single most inspirational thing for conference attendees might be understanding how totally wrecked most speakers are by the process.
I need a ghost writer for conference talks. Getting up and talking is my forté, sitting down and structuring a talk, not so much …
The final installment of my Dark Mode series explains how I adapted WKWebView to restyle in-app web content.
So… if I were going in to talk with a President (never this one), I might deliberately change my passcode with the full knowledge I would be covered by tv cameras and secret service for the next few minutes. Pick your battles…

Also good to myself.
