A quiet Thursday, here in Blog Town. You can practically see the Virtual Tumbleweeds blowing by...

There's a warming trend starting again, after a week of near-perfect weather. I dread not being able to fall asleep at night because of the heat. And that's in addition to my typical problems with falling asleep.

Apple released its second public beta for Mac OS High Sierra. I've already noticed some improvements, including a snappier Finder (it had previously gotten quite sluggish). I'd stopped using Safari because the browser was essentially unusable in the first beta, but this new release has made some improvements. It still has problems with Facebook, though. Strange, since that's the most popular site in the world right now. That means I'll probably stick with Chrome, which doesn't demonstrate the same issues. I assume that's because Apple is tinkering with Safari to improve it in the new OS whereas Google hasn't gotten around to altering anything. Here's hoping Apple can get rid of all the Safari bugs in the next beta.

Speaking of Facebook, I recently got a nice surprise. I hardly ever contribute to the site and am not interested in acquiring 5,000+ "friends," so I was pleased to see that a post in a fan group of my full-width cover scans for the first four albums by The Alan Parsons Project generated several hundred "likes." I guess that's as close as I'll ever come to Facebook popularity.

I feel as if I should be doing something right now, but I can't for the life of me figure out what that should be. How about I just post Another Hot Guy and leave it at that.
