School holidays begins and I think I really need this one. 3 weeks to chill out and relax. Next week I create a series of videos on how to make apps with Swift Playgrounds. 🤣

Please bring this to Australia - iOS 16 let’s users report spam messages as junk

All these apps collecting data about children, that cannot voice if they want that data collected. Do we really need to know when your child has a snack at day care? Let alone the security and privacy concerns.

I’m officially taking a month off running. My coach told me that it’s normal for elite runners take a month off every year 🤣. My injury is already feeling better so I’m hopeful that I will be back to normal soon. Also my coach told me not to eat too much - thanks coach 😆

Being home with a sick daughter meant I got to watch the #ObiWan finale as soon as it dropped. All I’m going to say is that it was fantastic and made me very happy and very emotional. Nice work Deborah Chow and the team. Now perhaps it’s time for a Star Wars remake 🖐🎤 ⬇️

I was wrong CleanShotX is great and I’m glad I bought it. Of course the built in Mac stuff does the job but I take screenshots all the time and this has some great time saving features. Also education pricing is available.

So Internet Explorer is over. It’s started well and then Microsoft let it become the dirge of technology. A great example of what no competition and not following open standards can do. It’s scary to think that Edge has a mode so businesses can still use IE junk. Goodbye 👋

#TIL about auto brewery syndrome as my daughter has a patient under her care. Crazy, your body turns carbs into alcohol so you are constantly drunk.

My Eero 6+ arrived and so far it’s all it’s cracked up to. A huge noticeable difference to my Internet speed. Just think, I’m still using the same “modem” to the same “crap” NBN but now using great networking infrastructure. Highly recommended.

Spent 4 hours trying to troubleshoot a Homebridge issue I had after changing network settings. I managed to figure out the config did not like “http” in front of the IP address I used. I’m sure I didn’t add it but it fixed it by removing it.

I have finally splashed out on an Eero wifi network. Gone with the 6+ model. I have some network reconfiguration to do but it should help out with the demand all our devices make. Fingers crossed it’s worth it.

So it’s finally got to the point that my coach and I have decided I might benefit from not running. I am taking at least this week off. I highly recommend to not pull a groinie. 😆

Another great video from WWDC22 Explore navigation design for iOS.

About a year ago I stopped using the native Twitter app as I started getting a “promoted tweets” every 4-5 tweets. I still think this is a bug but is this what it’s like for everyone?

Looking forward to making some new Swift Playgrounds guides using this technique.

WA’s ATAR Computer Science be like nah Apple’s WWDC22 Swift Student Challenge winners help communities through coding

Picked up a Eufy Indoor Cam 2K and so far it’s great. Connects straight into HomeKit. Best of all it was $71 at Bunnings 😁

Productivity levels at max today. Weeks shopping ✅ passport photos ✅ fixed broken shower taps ✅ installed security camera ✅ changed spa water ✅ fixed sink pipes and dishwasher ✅ spent over $600 doing it ✅

Student in my class starts playing Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush, I swing around to look at her and we proceed to nerd out over Stranger Things.

So Python is going to be the compulsory language of choice in ATAR Computer Science. It’s fine and if makes those more invested happy, that’s fine. But I would prefer choice, like Literature not being confined to one book. Teaching app development is not really doable now. 😔

My daughters boyfriend lost marks in an exam because what he wrote was too close to what the lecturer had said in the lecture. So penalised for learning stuff??

The kicker is, he didn’t watch or go to the lecture. 😂

Finally watch Spider-Man: No Way Home and it was good fun. I’m not sure did I was expecting too much but I didn’t think it was “amazing”. I have stayed spoiler free so no issue there. It actually felt a bit flat and I was like - is that it?

I really enjoyed reading: Honeybee by Craig Silvey 📚. A modern day fairy tale, not for the feint hearted. The constant sense of dread overriding much of the joy. Highly recommended.

5 days off running 🏃 to hopefully get on top of my torn adductor muscle. Cortisone injection was one of the worst experiences of my life so hopefully it’s worth it.
