I was worried by all of the negative articles about the x-files reboot, but, having watched the first episode (the one they seem to like the least) I'm really pleasantly surprised. I rated The X-Files (2016– ) 9/10 #IMDb #tv

Interesting session yesterday concerning mobile app development using Clojure(script) and react-native. I played with the base Ambly framework a while back, but the newer 'natal' tool chain really simplifies the process.

+Dan Lentz​ Google seems to play nice with standards, apple not so much. I want this to happen though but so far my experience using framworks for app development is like playing a game with inverse mouse. Eventually you learn but you never feel comfortable.

“You can make the Finder search for system files with a bit of work. Perform a search, then click the + button and look for the Kind dropdown. Change it to Other, then select System Files, click OK, and then change “aren’t included” to “are included.” Now you can search for system files in the Finder, but only in that Finder window. Once you close it, you have to do the preceding steps all over again. Ugh.”

So, I happened upon the only apple pencil in 5 states last week. I'm not an artist, but I do have an iPad surgically attached to my left arm, so I wanted to give it a try. Especially at regular retail price, not the ridiculous gouging that's happening on eBay and Amazon.

In the first week, the only use I found for apple pencil was pausing movies without smudging the screen. I wasn't really expecting it to be the end-all -- after all I'm a developer not a sketch artist -- but really no use whatsoever.

However, on Friday Microsoft updated the office 2016 suite to fully support apple pencil throughout. In particular, OneNote is an app that I couldn't put down all weekend. It seems like curating a digital notebook turns out to be a really natural and tremendously useful use-case for a tablet device. Since, for me at least, scribbling on scraps of paper is what seems like my natural default mode of work, the idea of a managed, curated digital notebook has a great deal of promise.

I gotta say, though, I have huge misgivings about allowing myself to rely on a Microsoft product, even if it does seem so clearly superior to any alternatives.

Coast to Coast AM is a radio show / podcast that's been a guilty pleasure of mine when walking my dog in the early AM hours. So, I recently subscribed as a "coast insider" to receive the commercial free podcast on my iPad. It's somewhat expensive actually, but it is also very nicely curated, well-produced material. +Mark Derricutt -- is there any chance of an +Illegal Argument ' CoastToCoast podcast crossover? That would be epic.
