I am absolutely sick of my devices thinking they're smarter than I am. Every morning I get on my bike to use Zwift, turn on my iPad (for TV) and phone (for Zwift) and my phone is like "he wants to listen to Zwift" and pulls my Airpods from my iPad. I then have to quit one of the apps to force it to either give up or request access to my headphones. It is absolutely infuriating.

And my phone has just done it with my cabled headphones. I plugged them in, and my phone decided (even though I don't think I've ever done this) that I wanted to output audio to my TV. Not the headphones that are physically plugged into the device. So I went to change that and my headphones disappeared as an option. They're physically plugged in! I had to re-plug them to get them to show up. So not only is wireless and unpredictable and unstable mess, but we're forgetting how to do cables now?!


Saturday

Saturday

A sleepy dog, some old video games, and a walk around some new routes right next to some old routes.

An in-stock keycap set? What is happening?!


Early morning skate

Early morning skate

Got up early and went for a 20km skate along the seafront.


Rollerblading!

Rollerblading!

Against my better judgement (and Charlotte's protests), I bought a pair of rollerblades again.


Tabitha is 8

Tabitha is 8

I can't believe where the time's going.


Beside the seaside

Beside the seaside

I've been so bad at this recently. We walk the same laps around the village every day, and see the same things, take the same pictures, and I'm just bored. I'm bored of everything and I don't know how to fix it.


Hannah Montana has no business being as funny as it is.


Saturday walk with the kid

Saturday walk with the kid

Tabitha and I went for a walk whilst Charlotte was at the allotment. Was a super nice day, and great to spend some time alone with her. We saw a Triangulation Station, some birds, cows and half a zebra.


Spider-Man Miles Morales

Spider-Man Miles Morales

I right-place-right-timed my way to a PS5 this week. It's the first time in ages that I haven't picked up a console I wanted on launch day.

I wasn't rushing to get one because there wasn't a launch title that I was drawn to, but that turned out to be wrong.


The things I want to change

The things I want to change

The things I want to change stay the same. The things I want to keep move further away.


It's a year ago today that Amelie died. I'm certain, at this point, that the guilt is never going to go away.


Retromodding Neptune Game Boy DMG

Retromodding Neptune Game Boy DMG

This was a real pain.


Quefrency rev2 X SM Keyboards rebuild

Quefrency rev2 X SM Keyboards rebuild

I love the Quefrency layout, but I messed up using unlubed Zealios in my original build. It's a nice switch but it's so noisy.


We're rewatching The Mandalorian series 2. Me at the start of every episode: "oh this is a great episode!"


GBA SP

GBA SP

I have nearly modded and upgraded all the main Game Boys. I don't want to do a Micro, and I just have a DMG left to do.


Night Walking and Apple ProRaw

Night Walking and Apple ProRaw

Apple released ProRaw for iPhone and it's really good. Also really good: the view round here in the evenings. I am very much enjoying my after-work walk. It's a nice way to disconnect.


Night walk

Night walk

It's so difficult to go outside and avoid people round here. It's annoying. But as long as you're prepared to go when it's cold and dark, there's options.


Upstart Crow is Mrs Brown's Boys for people who think they're smarter than they are.

How was David Mitchell involved in Peep Show, Mitchell and Webb, and this trash.
