🛒 I bought a monitor arm to support my 29" display, but it turns out the display is too large, and the arm is too small to accommodate it comfortably. To achieve a comfortable height, the arm would require an additional 10cm of extension. I’ll return it.

    First time...

    Every morning, I open Day One and dive into the memories from “On This Day,” and today was no exception. However, this time, I discovered several “firsts.”

    It was the first time I visited AT&T Park (now Oracle Park):

    The first time I got photos I ordered using our app:

    It also marked my first experience with a Field Notes pocket notebook:

    And my first visit to Vilnius, Lithuania:

    📷 Team off-site

    Every now and then, we organize an off-site event for our entire Apple Team. Since our team members are based in different countries, coming together is a fantastic opportunity to foster stronger connections.

    On this occasion, we rented cabins in the Lithuanian countryside. We spent our time there engaging in various activities such as playing cards, tabletop games, soccer, basketball, as well as enjoying some drinks and delicious food.

    Our group consisted of over 30 people, including Product Owners, Engineering Managers, Team Leads, Software Engineers, and Quality Assurance.

    Obviously, I dedicated some time to taking photos. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my Fujifilm X100V with me, so I had to use my iPhone. The pictures are unedited and captured using the RitchieCam app, following the SOOC (Straight Out of Camera) approach.

    🥵 32 ºC (90 ºF) in my home-office right now.

    📷 Coffee break.

    Room 641A was across the street from my office.

    Can we go back to winter already?

    Parental leave is over. Back to work tomorrow morning 👨‍💻

    Parental leave ending in a few days. Time flies.

    💈 👶 I had my hair cut and beard trimmed today, resulting in tinyScientist crying for more than an hour. I had to wear a cap to trick him. I’ve never seen tinyScientist crying the way he cried today.
