I have gotten so much done this month. I'm really proud of how much I've accomplished!
First: I have finally gotten the revamped Editorland out the door. This is a huge deal for me — I have finally achieved my goal of providing a free submission management solution for those who need it. It's still early days, but: it's out there!
I also hacked together the Philly Tech Calendar, which is exactly what it sounds like. It uses a real calendar as the backend, with a nice UI for casual browsers. I hope this ends up being useful for folks.
I helped out a little with the new Philly JS Club website — this was almost entirely Josh, but I did pitch in a feature or two. 🙂
I hacked on an annotation tool which I ultimately decided to put aside. I made some roadmaps for a tool which helps people memorize long texts.
I have mostly migrated my life over to Sorted³, a task- and time-management app.
So yeah, like I said: a lot!
I got a new MacBook Pro at work, and it is so much faster than my old laptop. Once I got it all set up, it really feels like I'm able to do everything so much more efficiently.
I've been playing a lot of guitar lately; I'm also really digging MythicQuest, which I've almost completed, at time of writing.
I attempted to move off of Spotify this month, but no dice. Maybe that's why this month's new music playlist is so short? Who knows. Anyway, here it is!
I did a bunch of bouncing around, trying to settle on something to read.
I read Iain Banks' Whit, which I found extraordinary; I couldn't put it down. It got a coveted ⭐️ on the "My opinion of every Iain Banks book (that I've read)" list. I wrote:
Right from the outset, I knew this one was going to be a magical ride. Powerful and captivating.
So yeah: A+, highly recommend.
Two works from failbetter this month:
- I typed 904,016 keys and clicked 152,408 times.
- I listened to 1,111 songs.
