I tried out Hevy to track my workout for the first time this morning. Nice app — really flexible and easy to track with. Apparently it has some good watch functionality too.

Today I learned that Libby has this fantastic sync feature that lets you copy library cards and info to another device. I wanted to read a book that Libby can’t send to Kindle, and this worked elegantly to make it available on an iPad.

About a year on, I’m super happy with this smart sprinkler controller. Being able to put plants in the ground, adjust sprinklers and then test them without running to the control box is amazing, and the smart scheduling seems to work pretty well.

I’ve been meaning to post an update to my Destiny Stats for a good long time. While I have a long methods post sort of drafted (and have dramatically improved the way I produce this information), I thought I’d share these stats from the Iron Banner events through the Shadowkeep expansion: A plot of my win-loss and score by class, and a visual of total weapon usage. The latter clearly shows that I have a pretty serious fusion rifle problem.

I just finished up the newest Iron Banner event today. I haven’t played much Destiny the past month or so, but got back into it with this week’s event and had a lot of fun.

One of the things that continues to be neat about keeping these records is that the picture, once I finally build it, does tell a story. There’s the Erentil story, obviously (that fusion is so good), but also the numbers for Beloved and Imperative each represent time earning pinnacle in-game weapons, for example. I really like the reminders of the times that I enjoy playing this game that live behind these numbers.

Hello Starling was the first Josh Ritter album I heard. So many years on, it’s still a treasure of an album with a captivating live set at the end. “Kathleen” is a full-on anthem that I’m lucky enough to have seen live a few times, myself.

Picked up Borne in audiobook from my library, using Libby. It’s an intriguing read/listen so far, and I continue to be really happy with how well done Libby is.
