  • 💻 My short lived experiment with a newsletter ended even before it started. I saw the integration of Revue on a Twitter profile, and wanted to give that a shot. Saw no real reason to do it, as I have nothing to add to these posts, and the rest I publish on Micro.blog. Even so, I signed up. They had an Instagram integration that could be nice, but are using a deprecated API to enable that, so that’s not working. It’s been like this for months, they haven’t updated it on their end, and don’t reply to requests for help. Not a great sign, so I turned the thing back off.

  • 🔑 Yubi News: still enjoying the geekiness, but I have yet to delete the TOTP codes from 1Password. The new 1Password for Safari extension makes everything even more convenient, as the codes are pasted into the proper field, as everything else. If more sites supported the keys protocol, instead of the regular TOTP, I’d probably feel the urge to use it more often. But, at this time, I only have the key working for Fastmail, Coinbase, Wordpress (and I don’t even use that account), GitHub, and Twitter. The other accounts have those TOTP codes, and those can be handled by 1Password, as well as Yubico’s own Authenticator. With 1Password you just log in, no hassle. With the key you’ll have to open the app, log in with username and password, get the key, go to Authenticator app, tap the key, copy the code, go back to the app where you’re trying to log in, and paste the code. How long before I just quit and stick with 1Password? The static password feature on the second slot is handy, I’ll tell you that much.

  • 🎂 On Sunday we went to a birthday party, a children’s birthday party. I guess these will become more common as tinyMovieStar grows up, but at the moment we’re still getting away with the parties for our friends and family. We’re not yet at the school’s friends level. I fear those.

  • 📷 Work wise, a busy week. Portraits, a food fair/market with yummy things all over the place, an art installation, and a beach cleanup. Busy, and varied, week. Lots of editing too, that’s the downside of the whole thing. Truth be told, the time I spent at the beach made my week, and I’ll edit every last one of those photos without crying. I can promise you that!

  • 📺 Finished Fauda (and eagerly waiting for season 4 now), looking forward to a little Seinfeld binging, and trying to figure out if Billion Dollar Code is worth our time. Picking a new series to watch is always a stressful activity, as we don’t have a lot of free time, and must be enjoyable for both of us. We saw the first episode of The Squid Game. Everyone seems to be talking about it, but movieStar wasn’t thrilled. If I want to keep watching, I’ll have to do it on my own. I don’t see that happening.

  • 👶🏻 We’ve been avoiding it for a long time, lucky us, but we knew it had to happen, sooner or later. It did this week: tinyMovieStar up at midnight, not feeling the urge to sleep any longer. She wanted to draw and, of course, Papi had to help. This lasted well into the night, up to 5AM. We’d draw a bit, I would then try to explain the difference between day time and night time, using the darkness outside to prove my point. She wouldn’t get it. We tried food, we tried storytelling, we tried everything we could think about. Maybe it was too early in the morning to come up with better ideas, nothing worked except exhaustion. She finally broke down and we managed a couple of hours before it was time to get up and go to work.

  • 🌮 Eating out is something we’re doing again, albeit a lot less than before. We do go out to our respective Mom&Dad’s places, and movieStar has been meeting with her friends for lunch sometimes, but it’s still something out of the ordinary. I could probably count the number of times I’ve been to a restaurant in the past year with movieStar, and the number would be pretty low. This week, prompted by the constant tacos photos @mpmilestogo posts, we decided to have some at Coyo Taco, our local Mexican. It was delicious.
