I decided to move some emails from one folder to another. Guess what? Mail can’t sync anymore.
This bug was spotted back in January and it is yet to be fixed.
I might just move to OpenBSD at this point.

I find it funny how Bologna has an investigative group called Ponzi.
Wi-Fi signs on train doors will be noticed by passengers only when they’re about to get off:
But Wi-Fi signs on windows will be immediately noticed because they’re constantly looked at:
I updated my Nice tramway map with a better design of the Terminal 2 terminus, more legible bus and train icons, and some other minor details:

Leap years are indeed worse than regular years: there’s an extra day for bad events to happen.
Interesting clock you have, Ros Atkins:
I never understood this sort of infographic. If it’s impossible to compare different-coloured areas to each other, what’s the point of the whole thing?

Just updated my post about train door buttons with better photos and a mention of the pandemic.
Fractal mind-mapping is the best: it lets me find ideas that I wouldn’t have gotten to otherwise.
I hate topiary.

As much as airlines want to make money, humans will continue being humans and change seats with each other. This is, of course, splendid.
Well, I’m afraid this won’t be true for the next few years.
One of the best things about watching movies at home is being able to pause it and think about what’s going on.
The words month and Moon share a common root because a month is a period related to the Moon’s motion.

This is everything published to my Telegram channel in the last month.
Since January, Twitter has the rights to do whatever it wants to with published content. This is contrary to my world view in which I own and control everything that is a product of my mind.
The blog format doesn’t suit everything I’d like to say, so I started this Telegram channel.
Apple Notes on the Mac is absolutely unresponsive, especially to two-finger clicks. Keep in mind that this software is made in-house...
Elevator operators now have a job again.
FIGMA IS FANTASTIC
The Japanese know what pleasure is: they have Boneless Fish!
Mac bugs keep getting worse and worse. Apple should release another Snow Leopard this year.
Sometimes I want to do an image search with the picture I have in mind.
Just saying: I don’t care about trends. I always act out of my own will.
P. S. I hope these words won’t come back to haunt me.
It always surprises me how Disney makes ugly animals look cute.
Room 104 is the dumbest yet most brilliant show. It proves that any nonsensical artistic idea should be experimented with.
The voice actor impersonating Trump never sounds like Trump, but he does create a metaphor.
In the past few weeks I really fell in love with jasmine tea.
The slogan for the 2020 Eurovision would have been “Open Up”. Hahaha
Using keyboard shortcuts is much quicker than pointing and clicking. Therefore I eliminated toolbars wherever possible.
I design my environment in a way that encourages healthy habits.
This is the nicest map of the Nice tram network ever designed:
The map serves its goal of helping people get around Nice by tram. There is no distracting garbage.
Unlike the current official map, all tram stations are shown on mine:
The most complicated interchange, Grand Arénas, has become legible:
I encourage the city of Nice to adopt my map as the official one.
Elevators should support voice control. This way people will be able to select their floor without touching anything.
