Pro Tip: Don’t use iCloud’s “Hide My Email” feature to create email addresses to use with Amazon accounts. They trip a security rule and AWS is straight up impossible to work with on resolving the situation. We’ve reached the point where it’s so hard to prove your identity and actual use of a product that it’s just not even worth the time.
I’ve noticed that my M1 Max Macbook Pro battery has been getting hammered lately, and I wasn’t entirely sure why. Activity Monitor was confirming some of my greatest fears: Safari was actually using significant energy. I didn’t know why. The lesson? Beware of new features.

This industry is hilarious.
I find that one of the primary reasons I never finish any of my little one-off projects is because I have a complete inability to break things down into smaller chunks. I can see the end state, and I just want to skip forward to that.
We’re using Gitlab at work and it’s frankly more tuned for doing what you need in an enterprise setting. Github was a pain to manage at NASA, and I wouldn’t recommend it. To that end, I’ve started migrating my personal repositories over to gitlab.com so I can experiment, because that’s how I learn.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. Sorry I’ve been so quiet.
This thing is flat-out amazing, and I’m sorry I waited so long to get one.
Apple has a knack for building things under our noses over the course of years… actually, even decades. They’re really good at building onto their technology when it works. When it doesn’t work, they throw it out and start over, only to build it up in the way that matches their final vision. We saw this happen with the M1 chip. It took them more than a decade, but they finally cashed in on their vision. I think we’re about to see that happen again at WWDC 2021.
