"Show me something in your house that won't be in a landfill in 50 years," is a phrase I keep thinking about. Reminded again after reading this article about consumerism and junk.

The 21st day of September? must be why I have that song stuck in my head. (Yknow, Janet Jackson’s β€œEscapade”?)

People on micro.blog discussing ads on YT - most suggesting they'll walk away from the service as cost of Premium "not worth the value proposition." While I'm as wary of BigG as anyone... T & I do find Premium valuable. I'd cancel Spotify and Netflix before it, at this point.

It would really put a cap on things for the Queen to die, so that future history buffs can conveniently refer to this *waves vaguely at everything* as the End of the Second Elizabethan and the start of the Second Dark.

Audio and video won't play when using a Multi-Output Device: ...the Built-in Output (MacBook Speakers or similar) must be enabled and listed as the top device in the Multi-Output. If BlackHole is listed first simply uncheck and recheck [...] to change the order.

HEYYYY this should be on a banner in 100-pt type, not buried at the bottom of a troubleshooting page! (BlackHole is a freebie you might find handy if you can't afford Panic's audio apps...)

I have my email archive from 1994-5, and I have to say.... everything about this article feels wrong to me -- a "grass is always greener" thing. You lack your adolescent email and regret it; I have mine and regret it!

And also, I'm stunned that this new iOS version is (apparently) compatible with an iPhone 6S+. The thing draaaaaags unusably on 13. I can't imagine 14 is going to be pleasant. (It's not a daily phone; doesn't even have a SIM. But it's a handy couch-IMDB lookup and alternative to the hideous aTV remote).
