I am a bit more excited than usual to send this issue of the Weekly Thing. When I moved to MailChimp I picked one of the default templates. It was okay, but there was a lot I didn’t like about it. Over the last couple weeks I built my own template up that has the capabilities I want and this issue (#42 by the way!) is the first to use it! See my blog post for more on these changes. 🙌

With all of these changes it’s possible there could be some display bugs! 🐜 If you see something that seems off reply and let me know. I hope you enjoy the new look! 🤞 Now onto the content! 👇

Alto's Odyssey

by Snowman

Just beyond the horizon sits a majestic desert, vast and unexplored. Join Alto and his friends and set off on an endless sandboarding journey to discover its secrets.

This sequel to Alto’s Adventure was an instant purchase for me and it’s been a lot of fun to play. There are many new concepts in the game but it maintains the great fun and visual beauty of the first episode.

$4.99 5/5 stars

Eero update today to support IPv6 and I can now go full IPv6 all the way online. Very nice! 👏

Using the Get and Set Clipboard actions in Workflow to pass more than just “Workflow input” between different workflows is awesomely great (and a total hack). 🤓

I love these photos of Tammy and I from our annual SPS Commerce Social! 😊

Went down a rabbit hole 🕳 automating MailChimp for my Weekly Thing newsletter. Wrestled control on my template.

At times while trying to quiet my mind, it is like thoughts are bouncing around like a popcorn maker with kernels popping all over. Then I realize it helps to consider thoughts through that lens, and it helps quiet the mind.
