    Appreciating the 6 Plus battery when I’m hitting  Music pretty hard. My phone claims 8.5 hrs total usage today. 20% charge left at bedtime.

      So I love the idea of being able to pick virtually any album I can think of, regardless of whether I own it, and let it run start to finish.
      dmnelson
        I’ve never been one of those purists who is fixated on the concept of albums, but that is effectively how I listen to my music.
        dmnelson
          I do really like being able to play anything I want on-demand with unlimited repeats or skips. That is where the real value would be for me.
          dmnelson
            In any case that’s a simple observation, not a mark against Apple Music in my book. Beats 1 was a curiosity, not a primary interest for me.

              That said, it may have just been the preferences of the DJ who was hosting then. Not sure how much the style will vary throughout the day.

                I tried Beats 1 today. I like it in concept. But, as much as it pains me to say at age 33, I think the target audience is younger than I.

                  Monday is complete. Tuesday is a furlouguh day. Friday is off in observance of Indendence Day. I think I’m going to like this week.

                    Whoa! SSD prices have dropped even more since I last checked. Sorely tempted to order one for my aging Mac mini at home.

                      To be clear I certainly do have more apps than fit on my home screen. But not as many that I use daily and actually warrant keeping there.
                      dmnelson
                        Wish I could blow up icons on my 6 Plus home screen but leave the apps full res. It bugs me if all slots aren't used but there are too many.

                          “My laptop won’t start up anymore.” “If you want to drop it by my office I can take a look.” “Also there are mites in my keyboard.” “…”

                            …Meanwhile the difference in computers in the same timespan is hardly noticeable for daily tasks. Especially with plenty of RAM and an SSD.

                              The pace of advancement in mobile hardware is nuts. I'm messing with an iPod touch from a couple generations back. Performance is miserable…

                                Then I used include statements to pull in appropriate combination of zone lists for each view. Saves me from defining tons of zones in both.
                                dmnelson
                                  So instead of having the zones listed directly in named(dot)conf I put all of them in files called internal, external, and shared.
                                  dmnelson
                                    Also, when you have a lot of zones, it really helps to break the zone definitions into separaate files that you then include in your views.

                                      Well, I guess haven’t seen that in writing. But BIND starting (or not) seemed to be affected by whether or not my RPZ appeared in all views.

                                        Succeeded in getting DNS views working. Turns out if you have a Response Policy Zone it has to be included in all views or BIND won’t start.

                                          And I understand I’m triggering it by mashing my mouse against the bottom of the screen too hard. But I still don’t want it to happen, ever.
