Look at this beauty.

First night with a curfew. It feels surreal how quiet this city has become.

Something todo for the weekend.

Signal โ€“ Exploiting vulnerabilities in Cellebrite

In completely unrelated news, upcoming versions of Signal will be periodically fetching files [โ€ฆ]. These files are never used for anything [โ€ฆ], but they look nice, and aesthetics are important in software.

Nice one.

Since I am still technically eligible to participate in the Swift Student Challenge I decided to give it a shot: SwiftAR, a declarative framework for creating AR scenes.

14 + 2 hours for Let’s continue trying what obviously isn’t working.
And I thought my Zoom meetings were unproductive.

I was excited for a shipping update on our new M1 MacBook Air, but there were just payment processing troubles ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

To contradict current news, there just was the first very light snowfall of the year. Delightful!

There are a lot of sports that are less enjoyable without crowds cheering but Darts might be the one that is hurt the most.

Let’s hope the atmosphere can return next year.

What a crazy year!

We wish anyone Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ ๐Ÿฅ‚
Stay safe and healthy.

Finished my last day of work for the day. Now looking forward to relax during lockdown 2.0.

It’s the hope that kills you.

Oh no, I broke my micro.blog!

Sometimes, even 2-trillion company does something right. And, whatever their motives, it’s okay to acknowledge that.
New App Store commissions are great for those who benefit from it, but it won’t - and shouldn’t - be enough to face off the antitrust cases.

I enjoy going by train. In fact we don’t even own a car anymore. But thinking about all the creative ways people wear their masks alone makes me stay at home as much as possible.

In memory of better times.

I am really enjoying Microblogvember so far.

Posting each day is a nice challenge.

The good thing about rainy Sundays is that you don’t feel bad for spending the day on the couch.

Wandering down along closed restaurants on bars on a Saturday night still feels spooky. Emptiness where there should be joy and life.

Let’s at least hope that the partial lockdown helps!
