We finally got a much needed cool-down and some rain. I hope I will sleep better this night!

I enjoy the quiet before the storm. Later today, we have full house with the children my daughter invited for her birthday party – wish me luck :-D

I had a good day today, work went way better than expected, and we could attend our daughter’s first piano concert today, which was a big success.

WWDC 2021 keynote is over, and there are some exciting features in there. Especially the new object detecting framework. Not sure what I should think about Xcode cloud, especially with the change in the macOS licensing terms for cloud hosting.

Using automation for my note taking process

When I’m not at my computer and want to take a note, I usually send myself an email. But the big issue I have with this process is that I never move the note out of the email app later. Triggered by my current book How to Take Smart Notes, I started a slip-box, and I think it helps me when my notes automatically get added there. So I wrote an AppleScript which the Mail program can call from a rule.
