I published my first post using iA Writer yesterday. The experience was good, although dedicated blog software it's not.

Not that I want it to be.

It made a title automatically, which I understand, but is something I rarely use. Since I tend to write shorter posts.

But overall a nice experience.

My editor of choice for markdown is iA Writer and has been for years.

When Manton posted that they added Micro.blog publishing I was thrilled.

Then I stopped posting for a while. You know, pandemic and all.

So this is my first post using iA Writer directly.

To think that you can create one solution that will look and work the same everywhere is a fantasy.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.

Batty from Blade Runner


As a developer I read so much more code than what I write.

So this from Brent Simmons is spot on:

…I’d write code the way I normally would, with clarity in mind first.


Nintendo shared another Nintendo Direct today.

Lots of interesting games, even if some are older. Bioshock, Borderlands, X Com 2, Bravely Default 2, Burnout Paradise and more.

I’ll be buying some games in the near future. 🎮

I haven’t watched the Road to Playstation 5 video that Sony published earlier today yet.

Considering I don’t use my PS4 at all after buying the Switch, I’m not sure I’ll buy it on launch day like I did with the previous consoles. 🎮

Norway closing down

As all schools and kindergartens closed in Norway yesterday, I’m today at home with my three kids. The work my wife does has been deemed critical by the government, so she’s at work.

I work for a company that creates an LMS. An LMS that has millions of users. Users that are moving to being online doing school work all day, instead of just parts of the day.

Which means all the performance improvements that I’ve been working on for work, suddenly became more important.

So here I am, at home, with three kids, and desperately wanting to help out at work but can’t.

At least not as much as I’d like.

Strange times this.
