A brilliant, elevated essay: Oh My Fucking God, Get the Fucking Vaccine Already, You Fucking Fucks - McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
I just shared our broadband details with Consumer Reports - I’m so glad to see they’re doing a detailed study on the internet situation in the US.
I’m still using my now-ancient 2013 iMac in Target Display Mode as my primary monitor for work-from-home. Due to some muscle issues, I’ve switched from using Apple’s keyboards to using the Kinesis Freestyle Edge split keyboard with its tenting kit. I also invested in a basic USB 2.0 ‘switching’ hub so I can flip the keyboard between my iMac and MacBook Pro.
The problem: ⌘+F2 doesn’t trigger Target Display Mode from the Kinesis keyboard. I don’t want to have to keep pulling the Apple Magic Keyboard out of the drawer to switch the display.
Solution: I created a Keyboard Maestro macro that sends this AppleScript command.
tell application "System Events" to key code 144 using command down
I’m triggering it by the same ⌘+F2 hot key that should natively work.
Since my iMac is still on Mojave, there are some known bugs with Accessibility permissions. I ended up having to restart the Keyboard Maestro Engine a few times while cycling the Accessibility permissions in the Security & Privacy Preference Pane.
Impressive tech story in the new F-150 Lightning, but I’m even more impressed that the soundtrack is Battles???
The irony of lossy AirPlay2 finally having a robust ecosystem, and Apple Music introducing lossless content.
I think I just heard Here In Your Bedroom by Goldfinger in the background of a Wild Kratts episode???
I applaud Epicurious for their decision to stop publishing new beef recipes. I’ve never spent much time on their site, but I’m actually inspired to browse their vegetarian recipes now.
Pfizer 💉 for me!
