I got up early to go for a run but it started hailing so I wrote a ramble-post about smartwatches instead

Happy Friday!

Update: I've spent the last couple of days frustrated as the Wear OS experience isn't as good as I thought it would be, and to use the eSIM I'd have to switch to Vodafone and pay 2.5x what I'm paying per month now 👎

Returning it tomorrow.

I just went to LinkedIn because I had a message. Someone was talking about "future proofing their innovation strategy" and I think I was a little bit sick in my mouth.

I've upgraded my smartwatch to one that's more standalone (i.e. doesn't need to be connected via Bluetooth all the time)

The aim is to spend less time on my phone... We'll see.

Today I discovered 1024b.club which takes 512kb.club to its logical extreme.

Is there something wrong with the @fosstodon local timeline?

Much as I appreciate this toot from @floppy, I've read it quite a few times now... 😂

Heads-up for those of you who have previously referenced work on the blog that it looks like Moodle have now redirected the URL.

Thankfully, archive.org can always be relied upon to have a backup:
