If anyone has any great advice on weight loss, no matter how brain dead or obvious it is, send it my way. Maybe I just need to hear it from outside sources, instead of telling myself over and over and not listening.

I did not have “discussing how people organize and listen to playlists will piss you off” on my bingo card today

From my blog: “Pixel taught all of us how to love everyone unconditionally (but still hiss at a motherfucker who needed to be hissed at).”

This seems extra apt today for .

It’s 8:19am. I’ve been awake for 2.5 hours. I’ve dropped my wife at her continuing education. My daughter and I are just chilling in the hotel room, because nothing opens until 10 on Saturdays.

Sigh.

Dice by PCalc 2.7.2 is out now, with a wide variety of pride flag themed dice!

There's a couple of new themes which can be tinted with pride colours - there's thirteen flags in total currently, and I'm always happy to add more. There's also alternative app icons based on each one.

iOS / tvOS:

Mac:

You can also get matching PCalc shirts all year round:

Got some great responses overnight. I’d love to hear about your automations!

As WWDC approaches, I made a list of all of my software-related gripes that I hope Apple rectifies ASAP. https://niclake.me/wwdc-2024-wish-list

I have yet to find my Sports People on Mastodon yet so you are all spared an endless barrage of Boston Celtics toots.

Tell me about automations that you have set up for yourself to improve your life, even in the smallest of ways.

I recently set up some @KeyboardMaestro macros; when I unlock or lock my computer while it's docked at my desk, it'll turn my office lights on & off automatically.

@whatsie The sunset one, you gotta have something beyond Home to do, right?

Also the rest of those are fantastic.

@jimmylittle @matthewcassinelli @KeyboardMaestro I mean this in the nicest way possible: that second one sounds like waking up to a nightmare 😂

@BerndGoldschmidt Interesting! I punted all of my subs into Reeder, but your solution is appealing too.

@BerndGoldschmidt @alfredapp Same. I have been mulling going back to TextExpander, but Alfred has covered 99% of my needs.

I just had an idea for a neat thing Apple could do.

Y’know the little tabs that pop up when you select text in iOS?

It’d be cool if the device learned which actions you tend to choose in a given situation.

So, if you choose “Translate” more often than, say, “Format,” they could make that a little easier for you.

This is an idea that I just had.

niclake,
@niclake@mastodon.social avatar

@hotdogsladies To that end: wouldn't it be nice if certain apps could hijack the default actions? For example, when I highlight a USPS tracking number, and it surfaces the “Track..." button, why can't Parcel just use that?
