Been playing around with the iPad and my old Apple Trackpad. It’s kinda cool, makes we want to get the Magic Trackpad 2 so I can truly navigate iPadOS while it’s connected to my big screen. I also hope that iPadOS 14 brings better external display support.
Clapped for the NHS at 8. For the doctors, nurses, paramedics, counsellors, and carers. Outside of CV-19 I’ve never been more thankful for our health system and the work that they do than I am right now.
Fun evening doing a quiz with the team from work via video conferencing. Worked really well, had a lot of laughs. I find Wednesday to be the hardest of the week for some reason, so this was good medicine.
I really wish Do Not Disturb in my Mac could be automatically turned on when I have a meeting. Seems like a crazy omission. I have discovered that Option-Click on the notifications icon in the menu bar is a shortcut to turn it on and off.
Ventured outside for the first time in a week today. It’s a really strange atmosphere, hitting me that people seem to be finally taking the virus seriously. I’m fed up of being on my own though, some in person human company is needed.
One perk of this whole lockdown situation: I’m finally sorting some of the stuff I’ve wanted to sort for the last 6 months 😂
I keep finding myself looking at the refurbished 2018 iPad Pro on Apple’s website. The price drop makes it incredibly tempting, as does the new mouse/trackpad support. I can see it becoming way more valuable now, especially for the Affinity apps…
From my trip to Rome at the end of November, when we could walk freely around a beautiful city.
Took this a few weeks ago when I was walking home one evening. It was peaceful then. Now when you go out at night it feels eery, but there is a kind of beauty to the emptiness.
You’d think having worked from home for 7 years I’d be used to it, but today has really dragged. I could really do with a walk, but trying not to leave the house and to isolate after some colleagues from work have shown symptoms of The Virus.
