Last year in AP Computer Science, my teacher Mr. M would respond “fake news” when someone said something to him that he didn’t like. For the end of the year one of the seniors bought him one of those “Fake News” buttons. He ended up administrating my PSAT yesterday. He accidentally pressed the “Fake News” button during the test. Imagine hearing a bad Donald Trump impersonator say “Fake News” in the middle of your test.

I’ve been pretty inactive on this weblog for a while. School started, and junior year is…a thing. I really didn’t expect it to be this much harder than sophomore year. According to my sister, I had an inexplicable panic attack (based on my description, she told me it was). I’m not programming on any projects at this time. I’m going through the Khan Academy trigonometry course so I can try to take some math classes at the local community college. At this point the next while looks like burning my self out through the end of high school. :-\

Seeing people go to mastodon instead of Micro.blog makes me feel sad. I don’t know why, I have no money invested in it. Maybe it was the emotional commitment. I also strongly agree with @liss on the upcoming Analog(ue) that mastodon is too complicated. Micro.blog just needs that last 10% of feel polish that Mastodon has.

Micro.blog almost two years in feels like a well executed alpha. Along with all of the clients, including my own retired one.

My family is going on a short trip this weekend and I want to do some coding in Xcode to learn Obj-C, here are my options:

  1. Xcode 4 on a 2007 MacBook running Mac OS X Lion

  2. Xcode 3 on a 2007 MacBook running Mac OS X Snow Leopard

  3. VNC into my desktop at home on a 2007 MacBook.
