For the past week or so I've been busy painting my studio gear white to better match the rest of the studio look! 😍 Turns out with some spray enamel you can make almost anything bright white! Next I have to decide whether to void my warranty on the two remaining pieces of gear here (one pictured, the other arriving in a couple weeks) and paint those white as well 🤔

Much nicer air today!
Went on a bike ride down to the waterfront today. The air isn't all that much worse outside than inside this point especially with an N95 mask, so thought it'd be a fun adventure.

I know it looks like a cheap Instagram filter but this is pretty much the real color outside.
I have now resorted to wearing my N95 mask inside

Fun Friday night project: set up a PM2.5 sensor inside and hooked it up to my home automation hub, and now have a display on the wall showing the terrible terrible inside and outside AQI

Why yes I *am* holding my laptop over the air conditioner to cool the CPU while I export my video so that it goes faster why did you ask
My view today for the OAuth Security Workshop! #osw2020
New studio space is coming along nicely! Got a rug in there which really helps with the sound, it's not nearly as echoey now. Still need some more sound treatment for the walls but it's progress!
Coffee to go
