I got my copy of the new Information Society album _hello world today. So good once again. Synthesizer , their last album, is my favorite album of the last decade.
I really enjoy synthpop and Insoc music when I’m coding. I think of it as the computer singing back to me as I work.
I share a cube space with a very talented engineer, and his work music of choice is classical. While I like classical music, I find it relaxes me too much and I tend to drift off.
I’m typing this on my HP Slate 7 tablet in the WordPress app. This is a small 7 inch Android tablet. The app works pretty well to post short simple posts, but the editor does tend to goof up. I’m finding that if I go back up a few lines and start typing that the rendering of the following existing lines gets jumbled into what I just typed. But if I rotate the tablet it defenders correctly.
I suppose I should get out my Bluetooth keyboard and try typing on it, but I’m happy to use my thumbs for now.
I definitely need to use this app more.
I probably should do several posts on the feats of Information Technology that Disney pulls off in their parks. And I’ve got a major rant about time management, time wasting, and the bus system, but I’ll spare you for now. What I do want to discuss first is the new Magic Band system and some of the cool things it can do.
