I feel my resistance breaking down… I am very tempted by the MacBook Pro 16”, and today my aging non-retina MacBook Air (2014) was starting to act flaky… and Jenn keeps saying I should buy the 16 for our big trip next year. I’m feeling a big purchase on Black Friday is increasingly likely. I use an iMac as my main machine, so don’t really need a powerful laptop most of the time… but it would be a nice upgrade for those times I do.

Waking up at 05:00 to confirm the Upgrade Program preorder of my iPhone 11 Pro Max (256 GB, midnight green) is much easier for me than midnight. I often wake up at 05:00 anyway. But hey, noon would be even better. Anyway, done; delivers Sep 27 – Oct 1.

I run our portable generator every three months, to keep it operational. We typically just wait out the occasional power cut, but it’s reassuring to have this in case we ever have a really long cut. #dejus365
