2017-09-28 : Siri

Speaking to Siri on the phone and watch is great. I found myself never using it on my Macbook Pro though. That was until I found typing to Siri is possible. You can set up a Siri keyboard shortcut and you can silently have the Siri magic happen.

Yes, I know you could just open the Reminders app and type in your reminder. The beauty of typing it to Siri is you can get things out of your head and on to your calendar or in Reminders without leaving what you are working on.

Crazy list of Siri commands

To enable Type to Siri:

System Preferences > Accessability > Siri > Enable Type to Siri

Set the Siri keyboard shortcut:

System Preferences > Siri > Keyboard Shortcut


05/31: standing desk

We hacked this IKEA Lerberg shelf unit into a standing desk. Had to go deep into the source code and figure out how to infiltrate the shelf’s encryption. Once we were in we figured out that if you take off the bottom shelf, my legs and chair can fit underneath.

The second shelf from the top is a good height for a standing desk for me. We put an old Muji Melco desk fan on the top shelf. It’s silently raining cool are down from the top through the shelves.

Standing desk…$20.

04/18: weird entityform dash

Do you ever get a weird “-” in a Drupal entityform you can’t get rid of when you add an Entity Reference field using a Mode of Views: filter by an entity reference view?

You can get rid of it by:

  1. Go to your entity reference view.
  2. Under Format, click on Settings for Inline Fields.
  3. Under “Provide default field wrapper elements”, delete the “-“.
  4. Save.
  5. Save your View.

ALERT! ALERT! You can’t just uncheck the “Provide default field wrapper elements”. You need to delete the dash for it to be gone.
