Just ordered two TWSBI pens, after reading last BSAG’s post. I am eager to try them with the nice sets of ink that I bought from Herbin collection.

The iOS 12 features that I like so far: grouped items in the notification center, time tracking and battery life utility, Books app new design. No real improvement for Mail, Calendar or the Music app, though. #apple

After upgrading all my packages via AppStore and Homebrew, I realize that Git is now talking to me in French. This is not the result of my switch to v2.19.0 but rather it looks like I got a different $LANG setting lately. How come?

It’s always a pleasure to download 3.76 Go of app just for updating Xcode, plus several additional Mo for Pages, Numbers and Keynote mostly to support Mojave dark mode–which I don’t have of course. #apple

Reading The Concrete Tetrahedron. “In most stages of our discourse, the book by Graham, Knuth, and Patashnik can be used as a reference to many additional techniques, applications, stories, etc. However, the present book is not meant to be merely a summary of “Concrete Mathematics.” We have a new twist to add to the matter, and this is computer algebra.” (See John D Cook’s review on MAA.)

I finally got rid of the lovely doom themes (one and nord) and got used to spacemacs light theme. As Nikita Prokopov once said (see his alabaster theme), comments are important: “Most themes try to dim comments by using low-contrast greys. I think if code was complex enough that it deserved an explanation then it’s that explanation we should see and read first. It would be a crime to hide it.” They are pretty nicely highlighted in the light theme. Also the font lock for Org code blocks is so great that I use it for Markdown mode as well. #emacs
