For the life of me, I can’t get iA Writer to sync or link to iCloud drive. It’s the simple things like cross-device syncing that prompts me to look for a solution that just works. I think it’s a quirk with the library management.

Apple emailed me to offer a free year of Apple TV+. I hadn’t realised the offers were still available with new hardware purchases.

@markosaric It might be worth experimenting, but I would have a different email response. The Hey team’s reply is trying to sound cool, and it's too long.

@PixxburghGirl Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris has already inspired generations of women, and she's just getting started.

I think I’m not the only one who is feeling like a little lunch.

@imgn A commenting system would be great. I found it challenging to connect with other writers.

I’m awake, but I want to be asleep. Thank goodness it’s Saturday.

The end of an exhaustive week. I’m glad to see Friday evening, with pizza and wine. We also binged on all three episodes of The Pembrokeshire Murders. 🍕 🍷 📺

I also applied for a new job today. 🙏

#Brexit has not created a single, physical border. It has created hundreds of thousands of invisible borders pervading every aspect of our lives, whether we are aware of them or not chrisgreybrexitblog.blogspot.c

Professor Chris Grey expounds on the lunacy of the UK's choices. Any Brexit would have been a downgrade on what we enjoyed as a member.

This UK Government's Brexit is a disaster.

Yay, the new MacBook Pro arrived today. I’ll partake in a short unboxing and then get back to the day job.

Learn more. Go deeper. Think harder. Write better. Point all of this energy toward what you already care about. This is a more sustainable approach to writing.

I seriously need to get out running again. December 20th seems an age ago. 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️

Today was the first day back to work since before Christmas. I’ve spent virtually all day in our little study because work, blogging, theme tweaking and online courses are computer-based. 🖥

Is it too late for me to learn a new skill for the modern age? So begins my third attempt at Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp. sayitwiththelighton.blog/learn

For the third time, I’ve started Colt Steele’s Web Developer course on Udemy. I’m glad I checked it out again because Colt has revamped everything, updated lessons and remade every video for 2021. This time I’m in for the long haul to prove a fifty-year-old can learn code.

Just after Christmas, I ordered a new 13” M1 MacBook Pro. Surprisingly it ships from China and not a nearby Apple store. I wonder how many times the courier will drop the device on the ground before it arrives?

I’m excited nonetheless: 16GB memory, 256GB storage, space grey.

Having decided to continue blogging with Ghost, I deleted alanmarsden.me today on the Write(as) platform. I decided to concentrate on one writing location and Microblog. I’ll gradually re-publish most of the Days to offload articles.

I love someone’s YouTube comment on a Marc Bolan video.

If I could bring back to life one person I would choose him!!!!!!

I always felt sad for Marc, dying so young with so much still to offer. The video is a bit grainy, but a fantastic live performance. youtube.com/watch?v=i05oFNtZbA

We finished our short drive along the coast today. iPhone 12 Pro Max handled low light scenery very well. One image, however, looked converted to a daylight scene.
