Lego Dimensions

Well, now that Disney Infinity is no longer a thing, I decided to take the plunge into the Lego equivalent.  I’m hopeful that Disney IP may end up coming to Dimensions as it is no longer a direct competitor to Disney Infinity.

And at $45, that was a pretty easy decision.

And considering how much I’ve enjoyed both of the two Lego movies that were put out for wide release over the last couple years, I think these games will be both fun and well written.

And of course I couldn’t resist the Doctor Who and Back to the Future add on sets.

This one might actually be real…I think.

Book Report: Magic 2.0 – Book Series

I’ve just finished listening to the Audible books for the three Magic 2.0 books by Scott Meyer.   After mentioning I was a huge fan of Ready Player One, this series was recommended to me.  I really enjoyed the story and the humor in these books!  And Luke Daniels has quickly become one of my favorite narrators.  While I liked the first two books the best, the third book had the scenes with the greatest humor.

Yahoo mail password reject loop on OSX Apple Mail fix

If you use Apple Mail (or a similar desktop app for handling email) and you’ve seen the following error message in connection doctor, or you run into the constant cycle of the app telling you to reenter your password, this might fix it.  

“Trying to log into this SMTP account failed. Verify that the username and password are correct.”

It is possible that you’re experiencing a sign in verification issue with apps that don’t support Yahoo!’s multi-step authentication system.

  1. Log into Yahoo’s website.
  2. Click on the gear thing in the top right.
  3. Choose “Account Info”
  4. Sign in (again)
  5. In the section titled “Sign-In and Security” click on “Manage your app passwords”
  6. Give it a name like “MacBook Air Laptop Mail”  and then let it generate a unique app password.
  7. Use this password in your app, and only in this app — create other passwords unique to each app you use.  You don’t need to remember the password, the point is you just generate a “one-app” password for each app that needs to authenticate.

Let it snow!

Well, there’s not much Snow to be had here in LA, but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying a good song Mash Up.  I’m a big fan of a few of the Star Trek: The Next Generation Picard songs that I’ve heard, and this is definitely one of them.
