It’s Melissa’s birthday (by the time you hear this) AND it’s the LAST GSE of 2020! What a long year it’s been — good riddance! We’ve had to do a lot of adapting and it feels like there’s still sooo much more to overcome. In episode 347 of Geekiest Show Ever, we’ll discuss some of the ways we’ve used technology throughout the year to adapt and attempt to overcome some of the challenges this pandemic has thrown at us so far.

My grandparents’ candlestick telephone was a very special gift I received for Christmas from my mother. There is a photo of it for our episode artwork. I played with this as a small child and it has a lot of special memories attached to it. I think these are the best kinds of gifts. Now it sets on my dining room hutch and I love to hear the sound of the rotary dial when the kids play with it. I think it’s what makes technology magical yet.
Reminders List Exports
I found out that in macOS Catalina, you can no longer export Reminders lists. If this has changed in Big Sur, I’ll be wanting to know, but as of yet, this script from Gary Rosenzweig of MacMost.com is the closest I’ve come to getting something I can work with. It involves some programming and use of the Automator app, but Gary is really good about explaining it in good detail. I was able to implement it and utilize it. My next goal will be to create an iOS Shortcut to try and work with the text it generates. My son likes creating shortcuts, so that’s always a little fun project for him and I to do together.
