I wish there was an easy way to see which RSS feeds I follow have not been updated for a long time. I don't know the cost of River5 constantly checking feeds that are dead. 

Near the end of another month, so just added June to the Archive menu.

Last year I asked, Does the Surface 3 have a successor? A year later, it doesn't appear as though it does from Microsoft, nor does it look like it will. I might have moved on to the iPad Pro 10.5 inch, since I bought it the Surface 3 has barely left its cradle. 

Earlier this week I went to the Detroit Zoo. They did let me out. 

I have a degree in computer science and was taught functional programming. Functional programming is a methodology of breaking a large problem down into smaller parts, which is an approach I naturally apply and why I like outlines. The challenge is finding a tool built from the ground up to make and manipulate outlines. I like using Little Outliner in a web browser, but that doesn't work well on my iPad Pro so on it I am using OmniOutliner. I wish a version of OmniOutliner were available for Windows. I could live with a copy of Electric Outline.

Some people like creating mind maps, which I consider to be a graphical outliner. I've used mind maps over the years, but find the graphics to slow me down. I guess I just think hierarchically. 

I am still looking a case for the iPad Pro 10.5 inch. The thing is, I am leaning towards a sleeve given that when I am at home I really prefer using the iPad naked. I bought a cheap Moko case to attend a seminar last weekend, but doesn't have a pencil holder, which is another requirement. Right now I am leaning towards the iPad Pro SleeveCase from Waterfield

I was planning to by the Logitech Slim Combo keyboard case but the reviews have turned me off. The Apple keyboard case doesn't sound too much better, but I have read that the Apple Magic Keyboard and Canopy case make a great combo.
