Oops.

I didn't forget to post, I just went out to get dinner (back in Old House this week but already moved the fridge) and the place I was going to was closed and...

* Apple's WWDC starts tomorrow. M2 MacBook Air and Mac Mini expected. And an alleged Mac Mini Tower.

* A photographer is following the Willie Sutton rule and suing hosting provider Leaseweb for selling a server that was used to host infringing images. If that succeeds, we're all doomed.

* The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a pretty solid lightweight business gaming laptop, which is a double oxymoron, but it makes it work. Missing the Four Essential Keys though.

* Screen on my travel laptop is all crapped up after the flight yesterday. Not sure what happened, but it's very annoying because I have four monitors and four other laptops at New House but that's a bit of a walk.

1 "Asus ROG Zephyrus G14"
Indeed, it's nice.  I got one with an RTX 2070 a year or two ago--snagged it on sale for $300 off.  I don't use it as much as I like but other than the missing keys it runs quite well.

2 Hey Pixy Misa:
You're one of my daily reads, and Kim du Toit is another. As it happens, Mr. du Toit was trying to travel to Sydney to meet his new wife's son and his family, and so he posted this about his headaches today.

3 I don't terrilbly mind retraining my fingers to find those ever-migrating arrow keys & pgup/pgdn(/home/end (& I use Shift-Insert as paste into terminal windows cos it's easier to remember than Shift-Ctrl-V)), but I wish it wasn't so often.
Also annoying: power button where the delete key should be.

4 Normal, as a developer I didn't think I'd mind missing those keys but once you don't have them, you find out they really are essential.  The Zephyrus, IIRC, doesn't even have Fn-key mappings, so I use an external keyboard.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
