I know, I know, you can’t beat the bots. I was “in line”, as they say, no later than 10:00:20am for the 10:00:00 drop.

And I don’t even love the brown ones. I just want to see how the fit is on these things without paying 2x retail for a pair.

It didn’t happen today, but I’m going to get these fucking things at retail.

I wonder if this update fixed it?

Here are some words. I’ll also add a photo.

Who knows, man.

Let’s try posting from my phone using Ulysses.

The photos this didn’t work well from the desktop, since it was drawing from the Photos app.

Maybe from here it will pull from my phone’s photos?

Old Timey blogging is a hassle

I think I fixed it.

It’s been a crummy run because the WordPress app is a piece of shit and I’m not super-interested in figuring out the details of what is wrong.


I can’t use the iOS app to publish, for some god-forsaken reason, so I’ve got a workaround where I can get posts up via Ulysses.
Which is fine.
But I want to be able to just jam photos up here, too, instead of sending things to Instagram.
I don’t want to pay a monthly blogging bill, I just want to pay for my hosting like I have for 20-some years.

Back in the CoD saddle with the gang

I got a PS5 over the weekend. This is my first “real” console since the Xbox 360, waaaaay back when. Like, so long ago that it is probably in the MovableType era of

My pals have been current with the systems and they were kind enough to drag me along with them through some Call of Duty Warzone last night. It was a fun time and, despite what this video might suggest, it wasn’t all spent trying to get my audio working.

So now I’m downloading and installing a version of the game that will let me get some multiplayer reps so I’m not a complete anchor when we’re Warzoning.

Video games are fun.

Another Gamestop chart

This is one of the crazier things I’ve seen in my 20+ years in the business.

Finished Breath of the Wild

I *never* get to the credits of video games. Ever. I am very comfortable letting them go if I get to a spot that’s just too hard, but when this one made my head hurt I just looked up the answer and kept moving forward. I loved it.

Three years I let this thing just sit, unplayed. Three years! I’m glad I picked it up again.

Got to the end of Desert Golfing again.

It’s capped at 10,000 holes nowadays.

I’m a little sad because this has been my “mental check out” activity for a while now and I don’t have a replacement.
