Posting these weeknotes late. Thankfully the only rule about this weeknotes thing is that there are no rules.
MidCamp (the Midwest Drupal Camp) resulted in a week that was both all consuming and extremely gratifying.
Stumbled across a collection of weeknote posts on Jeremy Keith’s website. Lately it has been difficult finding the time to post on my website (I'm hoping to rebuild it soon,) so this seems like a great way to keep something going in the meantime.
Stuff I'm Into:
I made it through my first weeknote!
New Year's resolution time!
Things felt a little different heading into 2019. I usually have a pretty good handle on what I want to accomplish in the upcoming year, along with a formal resolution. But this year, nothing. Initially that seemed terrifying, but the more I think about it, that openness and lack of expectation is an exciting resolution in and of itself.
Standing in my now mostly finished kitchen I also came up with another late breaking resolution. 2019 is going to be the year of intentional home improvements. Rather than letting a flood force me into it, I'm going to try to proactively decorate, improve and declutter. It is pleasantly (mostly) non-technical, and I can tackle it in tiny chunks throughout the year.
Wishing everyone a happy and productive 2019 full of dry kitchens.
I'm enjoying my traditional holiday illness this year. Without fail, once reach holiday break my defenses shut down and I catch a cold (or worse.) I'm thinking next year I'm going to take the week before Christmas off and just live in one of those plastic bubbles.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.
'Tis the season for all of the random Nintendo Switch related Kickstarter projects I backed throughout the year to show up in advance of the holidays.
The Flip Grip is a simple, but extremely well designed piece of plastic that allows you to play Switch in vertical mode. Didn't know that vertical mode was a thing? A small subset of often retro games support it. To try out the grip I picked up Arcade Archives: Donkey Kong, Namco Museum, and Pinball FX3. All told, I spent much more on games than the $12 that the grip costs.
Overall, it works extremely well for the games that support vertical mode. It isn't something that I'll use that often, but I love having yet another configuration of this versatile device. Fingers crossed that a version of Ms. Pac-Man that supports vertical mode is released at some point.
