I know I am decades (?) behind on the genius that is Seinfeld, but these lyrics are going to stick in my head for this show:

Believe it or not, George isn’t at home.
Please leave a message at the beep.
I must be out, or I’d pick up the phone.
Where could I be?
Believe it or not, I’m not home.

One of the things I wanted to add into our life was weekly adventures with the kids. The intent being to do this regardless of the weather outside. Cargo bike has been in storage for a few weeks now on account of the weather being soo rubbish. Can’t really complain though, it is the middle of January. In the Nordics. What exactly do you expect?

Today was a massive ride all the way to Valby park, up to the beach and past the seagulls. Can’t wait for the weather to get really pleasant so that we can also have picnics outside as well.

When I did my major cull during my digital minimalism days my RSS reader took a battering that it never recovered from. This has meant that I have not really been feeding a lot of my interests very well. The thing to maintain is the signal to noise ratio. It’s about finding those quality newsletters and feeds that don’t spam you but provide a steady stream of updates that is not overwhelming.

I am now thoroughly in the dip phase with []the thing I’ve built](https://www.stet.build/). Has the newsletter reached the audience I imagined for it…in a word no. I am super grateful to the readership that I have. I do feel that there are many others that have yet to discover the newsletter. Others hungry to learn more about the built world around us, presented in an interesting manner. I just need to work through the dip and come out the other side.

No idea what it is with the name Russell. First Brand, then Peters now Howard. I guess everyone deserves a good laugh. Food for the soul. Howard’s latest show, Lubricant, is on Netflix and just what I needed during these dark and dreary winter months.

Today marks four years on Micro.blog today. One of the best internet services that I subscribe to. What’s not to like?

  • It’s not run by a faceless corporation.
  • It gets updated constantly.
  • It’s hooked up to a number of text editors (I subscribe to Drafts just to post to my site).
  • It gets beamed everywhere. WordPress. Tumblr. Twitter. Email newsletter (which needs some TLC).
  • I use it to track my book reading. This one is an outlier feature, but I love it.
  • It transports me back in time very day to past years and what was on my mind that day (one of my favourite features and that’s a plug-in).
  • Gives me an excuse to take photos of things.

Like I said. Wild.
Bring on year five.

Web Inspector for iOS should be integrated and part of Safari proper. Zhenyi Tan does great work.

I picked up The Monk of Mokha on the back of learning more about coffee. Latest chapter about the history and how it spread across the world is nothing short of amazing and worth the price of admission. If you’re curious about coffee, highly recommended.

Two is a movement right? First we got Wordle, now Minimator a web-app that is a first class citizen on your mobile device. It’s a doodle drawing app with attitude. What I love about both these apps is how polished an experience they both provide.
