While re-reading what I wrote two years ago about Republican’s addiction to scapegoating, a question occurred to me. I think it was widely expected that the 2022 midterm elections would be highly influenced by inflation and the state of the economy that we are now experiencing, but yet it was abortion and election denial that influenced the election even more. I wonder though, is the fact that these topics were the main influencers good? Or was the result of the election that those who are profiting significantly from our current state given a free pass?

It seems that at least once a year something happens with Evernote, the company, that results in a number of people deciding to ditch Evernote, the app. I am a long time, paying customer of Evernote and for the moment I don’t intend to change unless I need to. However, Evernote for me is more of a repository than a notetaking application. I particularly like it’s web clipping, but I also forward particular emails such as emailed receipts.

A while back I decided it was worth trying export some or all of my Evernote notebooks and import them to another app, just in case something were to happen. I found that the best import was to DEVONthink and the second best was OneNote. I tested with an eval copy of DEVONthink but decided to not buy it as what I got in to OneNote was good enough.

I have found that the Microsoft Surface Duo is the perfect device for following fantasy football. I can monitor my score on one screen while surfing the web or checking my feed on another, and I can have the apps for both of my leagues loaded at the same time.

I play in two fantasy football leagues, one that uses the ESPN app and the other that uses Yahoo. I find it interesting how opinionated both apps are in terms of how they are used on tablets and phones. On iPads the apps only work in landscape orientation no matter which way one is holding the iPad, which I find frustrating because they are literally the only apps on my iPad that does this. On my smartphones the apps only work in portrait, again no matter how you actually hold the phone.

The smartphone behavior is even more interesting on the Microsoft Surface Duo. I have the two apps in a group so they both launched, one on each screen, and they look fine when I am holding the Duo in “book” or landscape orientation, but when I rotate the Duo into portrait orientation the apps rotate to maintain portrait while the individual screens are landscape.

Regardless of the platform, I find it very hostile to me as a user that the app only works in one way as this is completely unlike any other app. It’s as if the developers don’t actually use the platforms for which they are developing.

Read The Whiteness of Mastodon

Does the “digital commons,” which is owned by capitalists, really exist? One of the problems in the United States is that their is a decreasing understanding of “public” and “common good” because everything is seen as a opportunity for someone’s wealth.

Yesterday we saw Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and while I thought it was very good it also felt like the storyline was forced in a direction not originally intended, for obvious reasons. Was I watching a tribute or a part of the MCU storyline?

Having read this article, I am looking forward to seeing how the new rule changes will affect MLB next year. Last year I watched a few minor league games that have the pitch clocked and was impressed by the improvement in pace of play.
