Just discovered that you can activate the programs you have pinned to the Windows 10 task-bar using the Windows-key + the number keys on your keyboard. Works from 0 to 9.

Avoiding as much "Novel Pains In The Buttestry" as possible building a new Web platform. Challenge accepted.

The building across ours has an alarm which has triggered multiple times a day now since last Friday. It really feels like they should just disable the darn useless thing. Every time it goes off it rings for about thirty minutes and worse yet: the Fire department has to come to switch it off!

Had a wonderful and fun time playing with my son at the playground yesterday - this morning I really felt it in my back however. Becoming a dad at an older age has it benefits. He's keeping me in shape!

Wishing there was a way to prevent your own "Twitter Likes" to be so pushed so aggressively on to any followers.

The TrackPoint experiment is over. I'm giving up. I'm probably doing something wrong, but it's actually uncomfortable using it as the only input device. Cramp in my fingers and the skin on my index finger feels roughed up a bit. I guess it's good as a backup in case nothing else works or you forgot your mouse; but if I had a choice, I would still use a mouse or trackpad instead. So now looking for a decent mouse replacement.

What would you do if your government launched a "green pass" for the vaccinated? My question is: will this pass ever be no longer used or applicable? I do understand it gives an extra incentive for deniers to get their vaccine, but that should only be in case there is enough supply. Is there enough supply or will only the already privileged have access to it?
