"Apple Pay has become the preferred way to pay for... almost everything!" - except, of course, the App Store and iTunes.

This well-written piece in the New York Times is a pretty good summation of what I enjoy about long-distance Amtrak trips (and why you should stick to western and midwestern routes if you do it): nytimes.com/interactive/2019/0

I can't wait for the reveal of a gaming console by a company with a history of poor customer support and a short attention span for products.

Sometimes being a game developer feels like being a wizard who graduated from Slytherin back when it was respectable, before Voldemort happened.

Updated idlethumbs.social to Mastodon 2.7.3 today, along with some various other maintenance on the server. Let me know if anything seems horribly broken.

@CarlMuckenhoupt I definitely use the phrase "reboot the coffee maker" more than I'd like at work.

@jennegatron @cordeos Haha... I feel like downtown Sacramento has come a long way recently-ish (like... the last couple of decades).

@cordeos @LeonardHCizewski (I ask because Sacramento's pretty nice, especially if you can swing a place near the city proper). Just make sure you have AC in the summertime :)

@cordeos Yeah, we were there in July and the bike infrastructure there is insane. It makes me super jealousl Good job having lots of old rail corridors ready to convert :)

@cordeos I have to say, I really admire the whole city's commitment to bicycling.

@andygorman I greatly enjoyed the first one, and then never played the rest because I didn't own another playstation system after that. If they ever came to the Switch, I'd be all over them in a heartbeat.

@cordeos "We figured out how to set this thing up once, and damned if we're going to have to live through that a second time."

@cordeos Ah, the Eternal Webex. I hope that sign was placed there to obstruct the cameras for privacy during non-meeting times.
