Swarm | Year in Review

 One last Year in Review came in, this one from Swarm, formerly known as FourSquare.I don't know who is still using Location-Based check-ins these days. I do get a kick from seeing the random "this is a place you visited 10 years ago" pop-ups every so often.  I am surprised that even though I didn't travel any great distance, I still managed to find over 60 new places to visit locally.

A/UX 2.0 Demonstration

 I came across this demo via reddit recently.  Before Apple bought NeXT to bring us OS X, Apple had A/UX (Apple Unix) which ran on classic macs (I think before System 7).  In my early days on the Internet I came across A/UX 3.0 installation discs (which I am pretty sure I've backed up somewhere).  I wonder if I can get a Basilisk instance of this running...

TV Entertainment 2022 | Year in Review

 TVTime, the app I use to track what I've watched on TV (and in various streaming services) gave me a "rewind" this year. I think some of my stats are a little skewed because I marked a lot of episodes watched in 2022 when I had really watched them in years prior, and I only really rated like 4% of the episodes that I watched.  Maybe in 2023 I'll rate things more consistently to see what

2022's Twitter Circle

 While this isn't quite a "year in review," it's interesting to grab a snapshot of various Twitter interactions this time of year and do a year-to-year comparison (usernames for this year at the end of the post). I am not sure what time period the Twitter Circle application is sampling to generate this, but I do wonder how much the migration to mastodon-based services has impacted this year's

Xbox gaming | Year in review

The final Year In Review 2022 is all about gaming, which for me means mostly xbox (if you exclude STO). I am actually a little surprised that I only played 7 games last year (completed 6, still working on AC: Valhalla - I am not sure what counts as "complete" on TrueAchievements). Perhaps I shouldn't be, most games were rather large games and based on my stats a lot of gameplay took place around periods

Books | Year in Review

What I missed in Podcasts in my Year In Review, I think I made up in Audiobooks and Comic Books! My goal was to read 20 books (admittedly a low goal...) and I ended up reading 255 books, audiobooks, and comic books in 2022. I think the headline here is that, yet again, audiobooks save the day.  I listened to a number of books that I normally would not have read on paper because I was able to find

Untappd |Year in Beer 2022

Now, for something a bit different.  Beer!  In 2022 I started drinking beer again.  In 2021 I decided to stop drinking beer for a year (with a few exceptions, like if I went out with family and had a drink with a meal - something unlikely due to COVID). It's interesting to compare stats from 2020 ('regular beer drinking') to post-beer-pause.  While my own drinking habits rebounded,

Reddit | Year in review

Another Year In Review based on the data exhaust of my social presence on the web.  This one from the popular site Reddit.  I guess Banana Units is this year's popular measure (again), and I scrolled enough to go to the mood over 1 time 😂.I guess in 2022 I decided to dress up my Snoovatar and make it a little less generic.  The clothing pictured is what I got for free during Halloween.

Podcast | Year in review

 Well, it's January, so that means that various apps that you use, that collect various analytics for you (*cough* *cough*) have created some nifty year-in-reviews for you.I thought I'd kick it off this year with my Podcatcher app (PocketCast). I don't recall getting a year-in-review for this last year, so it was interesting to see it pop up.  Admittedly, I don't think I listened to as many
