Diary - Sep 25 to Oct 01 2021

Sat Sep 25 2021

Sleep 0530 to 1200. (6-1/2 hours)

  • macOS Safari 15.0 shades tab bars to match web site but then I keep confusing the tab bar section as being part of the web site so I turned it off.
  • Last MSLA season 3 race. Was 6th and last in my team and was thinking of quitting but I came in 29th this race and with the points I got I finished 3rd in my team. I also finished season 2 with 3rd place in my team.

Sun Sep 26 2021

Sleep 0430 to 1200. (7-1/2 hours)

  • Old times. Installed RipIt 1.6.9 (the last version available, I think TheLittleAppFactory is defunct but you can do 10 rips without registration code which I have) and could still activate it. Then plugged in my external Apple DVD SuperDrive (via a USB-C to USB connector) and did a rip. Still works!
  • Oh well, Handbrake still has problems with episode 119 Duet. Next I'll try screen capture using the built-in screen recorder.
  • VLC also can't play that episode so I have to use DVD Player. But built-in screen capture doesn't record DVD Player output. So let's try Capto, if my license still works.
  • Capto worked, though no subtitle track of course. Guess I'd rather have no track than burned into the video.
  • A fair amount of trouble considering I could buy the episode for $2.

Mon Sep 27 2021

Sleep 0400 to 1230. (8-1/2 hours)

  • I signed up on NextDoor and turns out on any sort of political or political-like thread half of my "neighbors" are idiots.

Tue Sep 28 2021

Sleep 0645 to 0845. 1030 to 1400. (5-1/2 hours)

  • Logged into my PAMF (now part of Sutter) account and they had a 1-click get your COVID-19 vaccine record from the state. Worked fine. VaxYes still hasn't confirmed my vaccination beyond status 2. Apparently Apple Wallet will soon support SMART Health Cards and with it vaccination records and Sutter Health supports exporting to Health Wallet, which hopefully is the same thing.

Wed Sep 29 2021

Sleep 0315 to 1230. (9-1/4 hours)

  • Ah, I got it. The Sutter COVID-19 Vaccination Record has a QR code. Scan it with your iOS 15 iPhone's camera app and it's automatically added to Health. This is as an alternative to connecting Sutter Health to Health since that provides the same information and more.

Thu Sep 30 2021
Sleep 0730 to 0830. (1 hour)

Fri Oct 01 2021

Sleep 0100 to 1130. (10-1/2 hours)

  • Jesse February is leaving HashtagChess for her own channel. A bit sad though I prefer Rebecca Selkirk's content a bit more (Jesse doesn't do Marbles on Stream).
