My first no-knead bread bake

A couple days ago, I saw that friends were all trying out the New York Times’ no knead bread recipe and I’ve been meaning to for years, so I checked our cupboards and lo and behold we had a new bag of bread flour and some live yeast in the fridge (my spouse bakes regularly) … Continue reading My first no-knead bread bake

Monologuing

Mr. Bond I see you’ve ingested my poison. Getting the antidote is simple. First, look up your choice of local doctors on this website to see if they’re in-network, then cross-reference against the PDF we sent you weeks ago to make sure they’re in your PPO. By the way, have you created your login yet? … Continue reading Monologuing

Entering your home with just a tap (using NFC & iOS)

As you might have guessed from a previous post, I’m not a fan of carrying keys and or even having to use them. When I moved to a new place, I knew I’d use the front door as my main point of entry (instead of a garage attached to a house), so I wanted to … Continue reading Entering your home with just a tap (using NFC & iOS)

I’m a grown ass adult that watches about an hour of YouTube daily and here are some things I like

A few months ago, I finally cut the cord and moved to watching everything on my Apple TV. Though I watch things on loads of streaming apps, I realized the one I come back to most often is YouTube. I easily watch 30-60min of YT videos whenever I jump on the couch and turn on … Continue reading I’m a grown ass adult that watches about an hour of YouTube daily and here are some things I like

How to control your Apple TV with a TiVo remote

It all started with the story of a swiss company making a better Apple TV remote, and what a bummer when I learned you couldn’t get one in the US. A few weeks later I tweeted about a new set-top box being developed by TiVo, and how much I wanted one just to use that … Continue reading How to control your Apple TV with a TiVo remote

Re-keying every lock in your house all by yourself

A few months ago, I moved into a new house on a couple acres with a few outbuildings. I don’t know why the person who built the place did this, but they put both a deadbolt and a locking door handle on every building door (sheds, barn, coop), including multiple outside doors on the main … Continue reading Re-keying every lock in your house all by yourself

✅ finished my LED strips for lighting stairs

I’ve got a long walkway with five stairs going down it leading to my door and everything is a dull grey Trex-style decking that makes it hard to discern where the steps end, especially at night. I could have put a line of black grip tape on the end of each of the steps but … Continue reading ✅ finished my LED strips for lighting stairs

Brian Hull’s Disney impressions

I stumbled upon a bunch of videos of a guy named Brian Hull doing incredible voice impressions of disney characters at disney parks. Watch a few: Aside from the bang-on impressions, the bit I love most in these videos is when the person playing a character at the park—let’s be honest, probably an aspiring actor … Continue reading Brian Hull’s Disney impressions

Making painless guest wifi with QR codes

You ever go to a friend’s house, need to send a photo to someone, and realize it’d be way faster if you were on their wifi network? Then you ask and the host goes yeah, join my (punny-named) network, and then you ask for the password and it’s like 25 random alphanumeric characters someone has … Continue reading Making painless guest wifi with QR codes

Puddle & Pile—the app that predicts when your puppy needs to go—is freaking amazing

Last month, my family got a dog. It was our first ever dog after a lifetime of cat ownership. In the preceding months I asked everyone I know for advice on how to raise my someday dog. At a conference dinner this past summer, my favorite food writer on earth, Helen Rosner mentioned one piece … Continue reading Puddle & Pile—the app that predicts when your puppy needs to go—is freaking amazing
