I bought Rimworld and played it briefly in January of last year before I put it down. The game has a steep learning curve, and the graphics were too basic to my taste at the time. Thankfully, I gave it another try a few weeks ago.
I recently installed Emacs on my work Mac, which allows me to access my blog’s posts folder through Tramp. Even though I have my laptop with me, I discovered that the ability to quickly start a new entry in my blog posts org file does wonders to my desire to write.
I’m fortunate to work for a university that offers its employees a substantial discount should they choose to earn a degree. I’ve been fighting my stubbornness to stay away from class and find a reason to enroll for the last couple of months. I haven’t yet.
The next issue I ran into was more complex. After fixing the packages, I wanted to browse my home folder on the Mac with Dired. I got an error that stated: "Listing directory failed but 'access-file' worked". Huh? What’s that about?
If it wasn’t for Emacs and other Linux tricks I’ve learned, I’d be happy with my office Mac. But That’s not how I do things. As it turns out, the transition from Linux to macOS wasn’t as smooth as I thought. I have a lot of troubleshooting to cover, and I hope to do so in a couple of parts.

Originally, I wanted to write a new post about updates to my capture templates. As I was looking into the differences I’ve made over time, I thought it would be a better idea to add these changes at the bottom of the original posts.
What do you do when you need to “lower your shields” for a minute to complete a purchase on Amazon, or tell Google that yes, it’s you who’s trying to access that one Google Doc you always forget to migrate over? I asked this question on Mastodon a few weeks ago, and the answers inspired me to write this post.
A couple of weeks ago, I created a video on YouTube in an attempt to start an open conversation about online privacy. As I keep working on these videos, I learn more about recording and editing. Here are some of my experiences.
