I've let my mess go

Installed iOS 14 on my pad, and the global search feature feels just like I’m on a computer. Will be interesting to see how this can be sued.

Also installed Futureland iOS version on my iPad. The UI works really well so far, feels quite native. There does seem to be a small delay when typing on a keyboard though.


Have been making it a habit to update my day/week/month/year goals again. I would really like to start my day on this.

One of the SWIFT projects I did was to show a checklist every day, but I think just showing this would be more valuable. That's maybe an idea for a Swift project that I could try knocking out this weekend.

The way I use this TODO list is by having a few broad goals of categories for the year, then supporting that into smaller and smaller layers. Sometimes things get a little blurry, as in specific tasks go into the month file.

Each day, I will mark off tasks as completed/skipped/partial, and then copy the non-completed ones, or delete them if I decide I don't want to do them anymore. It is really helpful to reconsider things when I keep having to copy them every week and see them skipped.

One thing that seems to be an obvious thing, is that if I'm tired, I tend to update this less. That also translates into me starting to copy a same task over and over. That's maybe where making this the only application visible after I'm AFK for a while will help. It'll put be back in context every time I leave the PC.

Today, I also fixed my mosh server so that I could access it on all my computing devices easier. It was a little silly, as I had already written a zsh function to do it, but had forgotten it existed.

Moved the luggage into my only closet. I got some more sticky command so that will be helpful in moving more things vertically.

One way I’ve found to save space is have the printer and rice cooker share a powder cable.

Setting a small appliance stand. Previously everything was sitting on the floor. It sits behind my desk, and has been quite nice to have easy access to hot water during work.

Updated Futureland iOS version, and put it on my “exempt from screen time” list.

Will give this a go for publishing and keeping track of my dailies.

Working my way through unpacking. The entryway Is clearer now. With the rain we have been having ive been thinking about how to keep that part separate from the “no shoe” zones. Maybe a massive tray for the “foyer”? It could be like those bed pans for dogs.

Have been thinking of ways I can just keep one desk for work and play and other uses. I don’t know of a good way for a desktop computer Setup to be “multi context” without having To move everything all the time.

Do I need to look into cheaper swivelling arms that can swivel out of the way, and put everything onto those? I could also utilise that pan holder I have so that all input devices can be stashed easily.

One thing I’m looking for is the ability to spread out on my desk and have a bunch of papers onto it. @InternetVin had mentioned recently about printing out articles to read, and I really enjoyed it when I had a full table to use. Now that I don’t, I find it a lot harder to get into that mode.

Another option would be to use temporary tables like a folding table. This could be put away every day, and could be used for laptops, reading, eating.

This is the only closet I have now, even for clothing. I also can’t put too much on top of the heater, as thats probably not a good idea.

I’ve recently started paying for a storage unit and I think it makes daily life a lot simpler. Maybe it’s just a cheap transition until I get less stuff, but right now it’s eased the pain of moving into a smaller place.
