Welcome to the 90th edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
We’re already at the 90th edition. It’s been quite a ride so far. Each week, when I sit down to write my newsletter, I feel like writing an actual letter to a bunch of friends. And generally, the feeling is the same when I read your reactions. Quite soothing ;-)
This week I received my new screen, a Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, which looks glorious on my desk. My official “excuse” is that it’ll be easier for me to look at the timeline in Adobe Premiere. More seriously, though, I previously had a 3-screen setup, two of which were old 24" screens that I couldn’t stand anymore. One was still connected using VGA and the colors were horrendous. I actually have less screen real estate now, but it’s much more usable. As an added benefit, I’ve been able to remove ~10 cables behind my desk, which is quite cool!
Alright, let’s goooooo 🚀
