I’ve slowly started to hate the modern Apple product packaging where you need to hold your device for like a minute while it slowly opens itself.

It’s like that animation that is just a little bit too slow that was cool the first 3 times and drive you up the wall for the next year.

Note system as of July 2021

Published: 2021-07-10 12:38:50, Updated: 2021-07-10 12:38:50

A while back I killed my wiki, and left Obsidian behind. For time being I just dumped the parts I cared about into OmniOutliner and deleted the rest. And at the same time I moved my tasks into there from OmniFocus.

It became clear very fast that this was not a sustainable solution long term. But I was fine with it as I looked for something I liked.

Currently I have landed on my own system based on The Archive and Zettelkasten. On iOS I use 1Writer.

I have based my system on the following naming convention ID Title.md. Where ID’s can have one or more levels divided by a .. For example something like: 0.1.2.3 Test.md. All ID’s unique, and I link notes together with the ID’s so I can change the titles of stuff without changing all the links.

Currently I like how this works and how easy it is to sort and deal with stuff. But the various apps I use might seem weird to others.

  • I use Drafts / paper notebooks for capture
  • I use OmniOutliner for tasks and working things out
  • Then I add it to The Archive / 1Writer when I’m ready to write a proper note

Feels like going back to basics and similar to my old note system in nvALT.

Killing my wiki

Published: 2021-06-23 10:17:13, Updated: 2021-06-23 10:17:13

I'm going to kill my wiki.

Long story short. My current wiki started out as a collection of notes for myself and mostly useful for myself. And then at some point (because roam etc) I started to add all kinds of stuff and to think more of other readers of it.

The result is that it is this huge thing that isn't that useful to me anymore.

So I'm going to take it offline. And re-write everything, throwing out most and move back to what I used to use a very long time ago: OmniOutliner.

Wiki updates

Published: 2021-06-22 11:04:51, Updated: 2021-06-22 11:05:54

I use this awesome web app https://forget.codl.fr/about/ to limit how much history I keep on Twitter and Mastodon. I have set mine to delete everything not starred and older than 30 days as long as it isn't among the 25 last posts.

I also do something similar with my blog now and then. Just deleted everything older than 1st of January from this site. Not sure how often I'll do this in the future. But it seems like a good idea to delete everything from the previous year sometime in the Spring / Summer might be a keeper

A few weeks ago I was kind of unhappy with the state of my wiki. So I moved all the files out. Before I looked at alle the files, updated them. Re-did all the linking etc.

I’m going to instead of doing these weekly updates do smaller updates after I have worked on the wiki. Plus that I’m looking into some tricks for actually linking to the updated stuff.

There aren’t a lot in the wiki that I haven’t updated in this change. Of the larger changes is that I have removed all the emacs stuff since I no longer use emacs

I have no idea why, but I find it infuriating when people can't capitalise things correctly. Like MarkDown instead of Markdown and similar. It’s even worse when it is a app name or something that is easy to see the proper spelling.

Think I'm going to finally properly learn Swift.

A lot of stuff is better like Swift packages versus Cocoapods etc and SwiftUI versus those horrible UI builder apps.

But. How is xcode so much slower than AppCode?!

I decided wear my Apple Watch again on Tuesday. Had some Toggl timers I wanted to manage from it.

So, I plugged it into the charger after months of no usage. Then I decided to just restore it and re-configure it.

I wore it for like a day before I put it back where I found it.

The main problem for me, is that it was way too slow to trigger actions from. By the time it would take me to do it I might as well pick up my phone and do it myself.

Might be better on a more recent Apple Watch version. But I also think the current Apple Watch faces doesn't work that well with how I want to use it.

I have used https://feed.press for years as a proxy to my RSS feed for years. It have had some value, like providing a static URL to my feed for years, through a ton of CMS changes.

A recent change in their pricing plus that I don't need any of what it provides, got me to look into it. And I'll be deleting my account there in a few weeks. I think they'll set up a redirect when I do so. But you should probably update to using one of the feeds listed here

It’s written in C# and .NET 5 plus a admin UI in Svelte and SveteKit

I start to get really fucking sick of all the electron app bitching in the Apple community.

If you think something is bad just because it is an electron app you're a fucking moron.

How an app is made isn't that relevant. Native vs web based versus native but using cross platform things like Xamarin or React Native isn't important for how the end result will be. There are minor differences between each. And each of them have benefits.

Most of them are around business requirements or personal preferences. Plus that some stuff are easier to do in a web based app, while other things are easier in native apps. But at the end of the day making a great app is never easy.

What makes something good or bad is not bad native vs web, but rather designing a good user experience and sweating all the details and a lot of focus making it work well.

I have no problem with watching at least a handfull of shows I don't like that much, before I give up on it. But my better half usually isn't into that; So we gave up after 1.5 episode.

It was just very weird.

I've been kind of unhappy with my OmniFocus setup for a while now, and the notifications on tasks have been unreliable for a long time. So I decided to scrap it all and do something else. Jack wrote this and I decided to take an hour and do it.

I have migrated over to things, and restructured things from a lot of nested folders and projects to just a few projects and using Things's Headline feature instead.

Very happy about the change.

Decided to give Safari and NetNewsWire another go yesterday.

Safari is really good, and I love how much better it looks compared to Firefox or Chrome. I'll probably still have to use Firefox for a lot of development stuff because the browser extension stuff for Safari is still a fucking cluster fuck.

There is one thing about Safari that I really hate. If you pin a bunch of tabs, and close the last unpinned tab the browser window will close. It is a weird behaviour.

NetNewsWire is really good. It is probably the best RSS reader I have used in a really long time. I'm mostly happy with it, but I miss being able to map keyboard shortcuts like Reeder and ReadKit has. Where you can tell it to do things like "Clear out read articles", "open in browser", "send to instapaper" etc when you type a single letter. I've kind of replicated some of them with CMD+letter. But I'd love to not having to do that.

I don't get the whole WhatsApp thing. Either it isn't that big around here, or it's just that I'm not in contact with that many people. Might be both.

I just use Messsages and texting for most of it.

There are a lot of people I have no or a lot less contact with after I left Facebook, but here is thing, nobody said it would be easy or without sacrifice. It feels great to not use Facebook or any of the other properties it owns. Like WhatsApp or Instagram.

I lost 17kg last year, and I hope to loose even more this year. I'm very happy about getting back into good habits early in the year. So I re-started my calorie tracking routine today and I went for a run. Not as long as I was when I took a break before christmas, but not that far off.
