And after reboot, the new phone reports "cannot restore backup". Good job, Apple.

At least it's letting me restore _yesterday's_ backup.

AAAAnd the old phone declared that setup failed... as soon as the new phone rebooted to install the software update.


Old phone is starting a fresh backup, don't know why it wasn't regularly keeping the one it already had up to date but WHY NOT, while the new phone is installing a software update that was issued well before the phone shipped (not before it was put in a box, I suppose but STILL).

It didn't occur to me before how _enormous_ the camera bump is on the 13 Pro. It's like, twice the size of the 11's.

New phone has arrived! Now to begin the time-consuming process of setting everything up.

I bet Okta's gonna be a pita.

An etsy purchase that's been in transit for over a month finally arrived in Seattle, after being listed as passing thru Moscow a month ago. Now it's showing as "delivered to an individual at the address". The contractors outside haven't seen it. ::P

These. Imagine pulling it out of a tiny jewel case, dropping it into a slot, and it starts spinning and music plays.

Looks like it’s possible to buy nfc tags in an adequately-similar physical package. Now if only I had the skills time and ambition to fabricate the rest.

You know the thing from MiB that’ll replace CDs? Or the little data discs from Escape from LA? I just had the urge to make a “music player” that would use discs like that. They’d be nfc tags, and just trigger a playlist, but the UX would be of playing this tiny cd.

If I said “Marty, please. Martin is my deinym.”, would that joke make any sense at all outside of my head?

(Nightly ‘medicinal’ dose is 10mg. Three or more is purely recreational.)

Reclining in bed, waiting for the internet to update, singing along to Fiona Apple, and lamenting things.

I should down a fistful of “sleep medicine” if I’m going to be like this. It won’t help, but at least I’ll have an excuse to be a useless lump after 30 or 40mg.

Don’t want to name any names but… has this podcast about doing better evil gotten pretty… stale for anybody else?

I really appreciate being able to have separate settings for the phone app and the watch app, but if I can’t transfer the settings I’ve already got on the phone to the watch, I’m uninstalling the watch app thanks.

Ok, finished Utopia. Lots of good, if - to me - obvious, ideas in it; nothing new (I mean, obvs); but boy howdy could I have skipped the constant moralizing and the “total religious tolerance, except atheists who aren’t even people” shit towards the end.

Yes, Tom, it’s a VERY enlightened theocracy, good job.
