Also joined the micro.blog meetup this afternoon. Wish it could have been a proper lunch with great discussion, but it was still nice to see everyone even though we have a virtual WWDC.
Watched 13 #WWDC20 videos today and I feel completely spent. So much great content though!
Wow… My DTK application was accepted and some sweet Apple Silicon is on it’s way.
Guess I’ll plan to check out Big Sur tomorrow…
Lots of great improvements to SwiftUI this year. A lot of the pain points look to be addressed, and the option to define even the App controller in SwiftUI is a huge win.
I plan to use it as much as possible moving forward. #WWDC20
That new Xcode icon… 😍
Here goes nothing…
Watched this year’s WWDC keynote with my 9 and 7 yo daughters. They loved seeing the iOS improvements.
It’s been a few years since I’ve posted a video rundown of my homelab. Here’s an update of what I’m using to support my dev projects like Seasonality.
This video took a little longer to post than I intended. Last month we upgraded to a faster internet connection, and in this video I talk about some hurdles I had to overcome along the way. Never thought I’d be using a Mac mini as a router!
I’ve been banging my head against a problem I was seeing in a new macOS app I’ve been using to learn SwiftUI. Moved the same code into a Swift Playground and it works immediately as expected. Hopefully WWDC brings a more reliable SwiftUI implementation on the Mac.

Just pushed out XRG 2.8.2 with some bug fixes. Get it while the gettin’s good.
This bird keeps knocking on my office window. He’s been doing this for days now, and several hours at a time. Doesn’t get spooked by me being right inside. Wish I knew what he was thinking…
I added a Mikrotik CRS328 Layer 3 switch to my home office network recently, and just posted a video showing how I’m using it with my network setup. Check it out:
It’s been awhile, but nailed another perfect month. Maybe I’ll try it again for the month of May.
Years ago, I had a SPARC workstation running SunOS that used John Conway’s Game of Life as the screensaver. I loved watching it, and it’s one of the biggest things I’ve missed about using that workstation and OS. In 2018, I decided to write a screensaver for macOS that simulated the Game of Life. I’ve used it for the past couple of years on my own Macs, but never released it publicly. When I learned that Dr. Conway passed away earlier this week, on April 11, 2020, I decided to release this screensaver to the general public as a tribute.
The project is available on GitHub:
You can download the screensaver itself here:
I wonder how many people will buy the set of Mac Pro wheels and just install 2 of them…picking up just one side of the Mac Pro when they want to move it.
My thoughts have been with the people of NYC and their struggle with COVID-19. Earlier this year I spent a week there. I put together this video with location suggestions, tips once you’re there, and some of the photos I captured during the trip.

Screw you, Apple Watch. I just got back from a 45 minute outside walk, which you counted as only 5 exercise minutes even though I started a “workout”.
With work finally easing up a bit, I found some time to edit this video I recorded a few months back. In the video, I go through the process of adding a new disk to a Dell PowerEdge server and using it in VMware ESXi. Then I add a second disk and migrate to a RAID 1, and a third disk to migrate to a RAID 5, expanding the disk capacity along the way. All without rebooting the server.
