When you get tired, take a seat. Lublin, Poland.

My tip instead of resolutions: A bingo board of fun and/or useful things you’d like to do during the year. No pressure, but a good reminder of what you want. We actually managed a bingo this year! Julia Skott on Twitter

I really like this idea. I might have to steal it.

Time to return to Poland. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas time UK 🇬🇧. 18950AAA-BF68-466E-829C-156340B6D324.jpg

What Would You Downgrade To?

As I walked my daughter yesterday I found my mind was also off on its own adventure. For some reason I posed a new question to myself > what would you downgrade your equipment to?

I’ve asked myself what I’d like to upgrade to many times, but I’ve never asked myself what I could downgrade to.

The default for many of the items I considered was simply the previous version. In a few cases there wasn’t a clear choice but the most interesting cases were the ones where there was a clear option that, while it had downsides, also had benefits subsequent versions didn’t.

An example is my Fuji x100t, a great camera but the x100 is claimed to have better image rendering…but with fewer pixels. Another example, though not relevant to me, would be downgrading from a current MacBook Pro to the 2013 MacBook Pro. It wouldn’t be as thin or powerful but would instead have some good port options.

I wonder if I could recreate this thought experiment before a purchasing/ upgrade decision as it might shine some extra light on the merits and downsides of a choice.

Merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate it then I wish you a good day regardless. 680634B9-A3A2-4E0A-ADF2-2D6395E46888.jpg
