This all leaves 2024’s modern iPad Pro in a very familiar place: It is a remarkable piece of hardware that can handle pretty much any task it’s capable of executing without breaking a sweat, and thanks to its new display, it’ll look great doing it. But it’s let down by iPadOS limitations (and more than a decade of slow-paced iPad development) that preclude it from being the shining star of Apple’s productivity line-up that it should probably be.”

Jason Snell’s review of the new iPad Pro models are very informative.

I did read a couple of pages in bed last night. I wonder, and hope, that I can keep the habit of reading more once the vacation ends as well.

One final quick thought before heading to bed: I love having this blog! It doesn’t matter if I write frequently or not, it’s always there when I need it and when I do I usually read a bit in the past as well and get delighted about the things that I’ve written down. Also, the 2020 iPad Pro is quite a nice... blog.henrikcarlsson.se

Linn and I started watching From a few days before going on this trip. We’re two episodes in and I really like it. If I have any complaints it is that the show gets too gorey in parts. It doesn’t bother me but it makes it less scary. We also been watching 3 Body Problem which started out really interestin... blog.henrikcarlsson.se

We had another great day in Greece today. I spent a large chunk of it by the pool reading Clear and Present Danger. Sitting with my legs in the water, Kindle in hand is probably my favorite way to read. Now the wind has picked up speed and I’m sitting outside on the patio(?) by our room.

I’ve realized that something. Being in a sunnier, warmer country (tends to be Greece) really ups my tolerance for music that I otherwise find absolutely terrible. Just a few moments ago I actually enjoyed the recent house remix/sample of “I’m blue”. Weird.

Two nights ago Linn and I watched The Shining and I’ve recently finished the book. I have mixed feelings about this movie. I’ll get back to this soon, I hope.

Yesterday Ebbe and me finished to Wind Temple in Tears of the Kingdom. In my opinion it was a really exciting dungeon, being just hard enough to be a challenge, while not impossible and it made me feel clever in the end.

Also since I really like flying with the glider the boss battle was amazing.

A recipe for a Tequila Sunrise cocktail
  • 4,5 cl tequila
  • 9 cl orange juice
  • 1,5 cl grenadine

Fill a highball glass with ice and pour tequila and orange juice into it. Careful put the grenadine into the glass without stirring or shaking. The grenadine is ”the sunrise”.

As I searched the liquor cabinet the other day I realized that I had a surprising amount of tequila, so I decided to make Tequila Sunrise’s. They turned out really well.

This might just be one of those ideas that I only stick with for a couple of days but right now I write my blog posts with a pen and paper. Then I transcribe them on the computer when it is time to post.

If I am going to stick with it, I’ll probably need a new and better notebook.

@sod That one's in my physical bookshelf already and last summer I started reading it in parallell to all the audio book listening. However I haven't taken the time to read in a long while, so I'll probably need to start it from the beginning again. In the end I went with The Wolves of Calla and so far (4-5 hours in) I'm very happy about the choice.

@jean As a Swede, I can confirm this. It’s actually a law that goes back to when Per Allbin Hanson was prime minister that states that every citizen must be prepared to serve Fika if the prime minister or the king were to make an unscheduled visit. 🙃

@odd To be clear, I don’t think Lynch and Frost knowingly took parts of it, but maybe one or both of them had read it and it was simmering in that back of their mind. Or maybe it’s some sort of shared American horror, some ideas of small towns and their secrets.

@colinwalker In that case I think you don't even have to move your headphones to get the post DAW signal. Just press the "USB/2TR TO PHONES/CTRL RM"-button and the signal going to the headphones should be the return from the computer, as opposed to the mix from the mixer.

Avatar

Henrik Carlsson
@MrHenko

@colinwalker Sure, but eveything that gets in the way of the creative process is a hassle. That mixer has a built in USB audio interface, right? But you use a separate interface, correct?

Avatar

Henrik Carlsson
@MrHenko

@colinwalker Aha, you use it stand alone at times. Then I understand. Is there a way to connect the computer back to the mixer (lika a "Tape Return" or similar) in a way so that you can listen to it via the mixer, without recording it back onto it self? What mixer are you using?

@colinwalker How is your setup? Is it possible to listen to the audio after it's passed through the computer instead of before the computer? It'll help to catch those things.

@leonp Again, I disagree. I’m not saying that the ad companies aren’t making it worse with their UIs for this, but even when the law works perfectly it means every single website that uses cookies in any kind of way must throw up a dialog of some sort which will lead to users being trained at ignoring them and just clicking “allow”.

@MrHenko

@leonp I disagree. The problem is that politicians doesn’t now how the internet works, and they don’t really care either, so they make laws that just doesn’t make sense and/or doesn’t work in practice. See also the “link tax” proposed by the EU.

@colinwalker Neither have I. It doesn't seem to have nearly as good a reputation as the other Roland machines. I don't really know why though. Yes, it's hard to use and the sounds are limited in their appeal, but the same could be said for many other TR and TD products.
