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?!
A sleepy dog, some old video games, and a walk around some new routes right next to some old routes.
Against my better judgement (and Charlotte's protests), I bought a pair of rollerblades again.
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.
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.
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 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.
We're rewatching The Mandalorian series 2. Me at the start of every episode: "oh this is a great episode!"
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.
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.
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.
