Racing Brain

Early this morning my mind decided that I needed to rearrange my room. I told my mind that I thought that it was a good idea, however I didn’t think my husband or the people downstairs would appreciate the activity at 2:30 AM. So guess who spent the rest of the night rearranging the room in her mind? Clearly my brain has issues, that it likes to express sometimes I just wish it would not choose the middle of the night to do it.

I am going to be purchasing a new MacBook Air and I am looking for a external monitor to use with it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A Weird Glitch

I use Overcast to listen to podcasts and Safari as my browser of choice on my iPhone. Lately a weird glitch has been occurring where, when I open a page in Safari, which has a video on it, Overcast stops playing. This happens even if the video on Safari is not playing. I am not sure if this is an Overcast issue, a Safari issue or a public beta issue. I am wondering if anyone else using a different podcast client is having this issue?

I've Been Thinking About

One of my favorite shows to watch on a relaxing Sunday afternoon is The Repair Shop I was watching an episode Sunday afternoon where one of the repairs was a 100 year old watch with a leather band. The leather band could not be repaired and had to be replaced. The lady repairing the band was able to create a window in the new band and put a piece of the old band in the window. It got me thinking though if you have to replace parts to repair something, at what point is it no longer the thing you are repairing but a new thing?

I started to use Fastmail a couple of months ago, but was running gmail thru it. I am finally starting to switch my newsletters and shops over to Fastmail. This may take awhile.

Hucksters Then and Now

I was having a case of deja vu while reading The Haunting History of a Huckster’s “Cancer Cure. It is the story of Norman Baker, a man who promoted and sold questionable cures in the 1920s and 1930s. His miracle cures included watermelon seed extracts, corn silk, and clover. He used the radio station that he owned KTNT (Know the Naked Truth), to promote his cure, slander his enemies and denigrate the mainstream medical establishment. Does this story sound familiar to you too?

Does anyone else have the issue, where you are scrolling a list in an iOs app and you go to a different page or part of the app and when you come back to the list it flings to the top. Which means you have to remember where you were and scroll back down.
