Google Calendar helps my teammates at work with planning 1:1s, conferences, meetups, and reviewing AFK dates. The account is through my employer (Automattic), and I mainly use it on a desktop browser. On my iPhone, Fantastical 2 and Calendars 5.
For several months, I couldn’t view shared calendars on my Automattic account. On my personal Google account, I remembered an obscure Google page that had to be viewed on my iPhone in order to toggle visibility of the calendars.
After searching Google Help pages without success, the “Fantastical 2 for iPhone FAQ” by Flexbits had the correct page for me! 🥳
Years ago, I assume I set up my Google account with Exchange and Google Sync.
This post will be handy if I decide to add another calendar, and I need to see it on my phone. 😄
P.S. I wrote this post from the new WordPress block-based editor! 🤩
Today I learned:
You can download the viewing activity for any profile as a CSV file to easily see which titles were watched and when.
The oldest on my list (Remember The Titans) was from January 5th, 2009, which is 3,596 days ago. Almost ten years!
On a related note, if you want to wipe out all viewing activity on a profile, I think you can create a new profile, then delete the old one. Figured I’d throw it out there. 😄

I’m joining Automatticians who celebrate Burrito Friday with a sausage breakfast burrito. 😋
Yes, I was overdue for posting something here. To quote Uncle Leo, “Hello!”
I’ve been using AirPods for about eight days. Feels great without the cord, and sounds good across lots of podcasts, music, and video. They stay in while smashing tickets, eating a meal, washing dishes, taking a walk, or riding a bus. I’ve also worn them successfully while lying in bed for a short period of time. They won’t stay in if I fall asleep, which I expected.
I’m usually around a power source, so I haven’t thought of battery life in depth. However, air travel is in my future, and I plan to leave my Sony MDR-7506 headphones at home to free up space in my backpack.
Looking at Apple’s product page, I haven’t used Siri with them yet. Perhaps I need to find some podcast episodes for very simple ideas. Suggestions welcome!
A few times, I mentioned to Amy that wearing them makes me think of something from an episode of Black Mirror. Pretty trippy.
Overall, I dig them! 👍🏾

During my sabbatical last year, I completed one project where the end result was to close my Media Temple account. (It was a good run!) Going forward, I would be saving $22 per year. 💵
I haven’t thought about this very much since I completed the move, which is probably a good thing. 😎
Last.fm published my listening report for 2017! I like it. A few thoughts:
- The drop occurred during my sabbatical (February–April).
- I rarely ❤️ tracks in the Last.fm app.
- Listening Clock — 4:00–5:00 pm might be the period of time when I’m in the groove at work. 🕓🕔
- Biggest Day — “You listened to 225 tracks on 20 June 2017.” This…seems wrong. I’ll consider cleaning this up by hand; I can delete scrobbles, mainly ones that occur at the same time.
I also appreciated the ability to download images of the various data modules. For posterity:
It lasted for about 2,388 days. I don’t know the exact date it arrived, but I added an entry in Day One after I broke it on April 6th, 2017 (during my sabbatical).
Annoyed with myself for breaking the screen of my Kindle. I rolled a bit on it.
While it isn’t cracked, per se, two thirds of the screen no longer update.
It’s been fun! 😁
