Saturday Morning Coffee

Spicy Mexican CoffeeIt seems Kolby hasn’t figured out the concept of sleeping in on the weekend, no sir. We had the discussion again this morning at 4:45AM. Goofy dog. 😂

I managed to fall back to sleep on the couch until 6. Coffee time! ☕️


Forceful flooding that washed away roads and sent residents across parts of northern and central California fleeing their homes is expected to continue Saturday and through the weekend as more rain arrives.

This is crazy to watch. Drought for years and years and now flooding.


Twitter’s decline is paving the way for other platforms to build next-generation replacements. And now the biggest player in the game is getting involved: Meta is in the early stages of building a dedicated app for people to post text-based updates.

Oh, sure, now Meta wants to get in on the action with their own decentralized network offering. 🤣

Just put up a Mastodon instance and call it a day.

If you see a page offering a download of NetNewsWire for Android, please remember that it’s a scam and you should definitely not install it.

I wonder what kind of recourse Brent has to stop this sort of thing?


Lewis Hamilton’s car was not its best last year, when Hamilton finished in sixth place for the championship, and Mercedes finished third in the Constructor’s Championship, both results below their standards.

I got into F1 a few years back and don’t watch it super closely but perhaps it’s just time for another team to be on top for a while?

SumatraPDF is an open-source document reader for Windows. It started as a PDF reader, hence the name, but over time I’ve added for e-book formats (epub, mobi), comic books (cbz, cbr), DjVu, XPS, image formats etc. It’s about 127k lines of C++ (not counting libraries written by others).

It’s nice to see a traditional Win32 application live on. Makes me want to work on it. That, of course, will never happen.

The New Republic

The Tennessee House of Representatives has passed a bill that would allow people to refuse to perform a marriage if they disagree with it.

Can someone please stop the GOP? They really want a society run by old white men with all kinds of weird hang ups?

Spotify is redesigning the core homescreen of its app, trying to make it easier for users to find new stuff to listen to — and watch. The new design goes heavy on imagery and vertical scrolling, turning your homescreen from a set of album covers into a feed that much more closely resembles TikTok and Instagram.

I’m sure this is controversial but I don’t think it’s a bad idea. Folks will get used to it and it’ll feel natural after a while.


A few weeks ago, we announced that Medium is embracing short-form writing by launching our very own Mastodon server at Starting today, we’re opening up access for our member community. If you’re a Medium member, you can create an account on

Another controversial thing but I don’t have a problem with Medium running their own instance.
