Instagramery Part Two

Six months ago I lamented that I couldn't get into the Instagram account I created back in the day. My requests for assistance fell on deaf ears and I considered the account gone altogether.

I received an email from Instagram support this weekend. Account unlocked. Six. Months. After. Asking. Ace!

Of course the reason I wanted it unlocked in the first place is now so six months ago. Moment gone and all that.

MacBook Pro Thoughts

123QWE

This week I got a new MacBook Pro at work. One of the touch bar models. It's certainly too early to have anything reasonable to say, so a few quick first impressions.

Keyboard. Louder, less travel, doesn't feel as substantial.

Screen. Just lovely in every way.

Trackpad. Very big. And also big. The 'click' is softer. Why is it so big?

Touch Bar. Why. Is. This. A. Thing?

Touch ID. Being able to use my fingerprint to login is wonderful.

Ports. All USB C, all the time. Not as big of a deal as I thought? Only need one USB C => USB A dongle.

No physical escape key. I'm in vim all the time. Not having an escape key is almost a deal breaker.

On Using Chrome

The only time I ever use Chrome is for multi-browser testing at $dayjob. For reasons I can only describe as 'never really sat well with me' I've tended to avoid it. Articles such as this one about breaking ad tracking extensions aren't likely to change my mind any time soon.

Or as jwz eloquently puts it.

Sure, run a web browser developed by the world's largest advertising company.

What could go wrong.
