Weeknotes 10.18–10.24

Notes from my week.

  • Fixed an issue with Docker (which broke for me after the latest update to the desktop app). There is a known issue with the Apple M1 CPU, and the fix is to set the platform as linux/amd64. I did this by exporting the DOCKER_DEFAULT_PLATFORM environmental variable in my .zshrc file as suggested in a Stack Overflow answer. I’m not sure if this made a difference, but I also switched to the old version of Docker Compose in the Docker app.
  • Continued working on my dotfiles. I finished my new installer, but I still have a lot of work to do.
  • Josie got her glasses this week. I was hoping my kids would be able to go longer than I did without needing glasses, but Josie is the exact same age I was when I got my first glasses.
  • Had a nice visit from my mom this weekend. The kids really enjoyed spending some time with her.


There was a lot of news around the Apple event this week:





  • Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4)
  • NHL 21 (PS4)
