An exciting start to a new year - plotting my macOS, iPadOS, mobile and development lifestyle budget and subscription allocations.

Having been a former shameless software pirate craigslist enterprise (2007-2012-ish), as well as DRM content torrent downloading aficionado, I must say, once again, for the record, that I fully encourage people who still refuse to pay for their content and app licensing, to become free of their bonds and debts due to the creators of works in digital - few could claim that the merits of the opposition would outsmart the big tech's legal, executive, administrative, surveillance, and counterintelligence departments, altogether. I sure got a Scientology hard time about it, for a significant run of 5 years, and more.

That being said, I now have a much more stringent and disciplined lifestyle (of tech, still) in that I am, in small measures and means, contributing and creating in small developmental tech, IoT, creative, and analytical projects, many; and much to the fulfillment of all hours of most days (of days that are well-to-do in productivity.

Here's what this month's budget for iPigeon.institute's January 2020 plans for the roadmap, affinity, and content distribution of efforts and capabilities will extend unto.

My calculated budget, given General Relief payment (welfare)
The details of my proposed budgeting for my creative, recreational, development, connectivity, and financials (credit and loans), subscriptions, Human Resources and outreach marketing, design, cloud platform, and MDM (Multi-Device Management) efforts. I have $221 to work with, starting on the 2nd of each month.

I was a bit torn, as to who, where and why I would [might] allocate this largest chunk of payment towards, here; being Adobe's Creative Cloud Suite offerings, at individual retail price of $52.99, versus a Jeux d'orgues virtual instrument pipe organ, a fine suite of offerings in this category, by Markus Sigg, who offers some of the sampled organ instruments for free. The larger spread of octaves and samples are for the paid apps.

Description

The famous Jeux d'orgues 2 sampleset of Joseph Basquin (see http://www.jeuxdorgues.com ) is now available on the iPad and iPhone. Connect a MIDI keyboard or MIDI console to your device to play this sampleset of the Stiehr-Mockers organ located in Romanswiller, France. The app supports wireless MIDI, virtual MIDI, background operation and recording to WAV/M4A files. Visit the app support page for a detailed description of the app's features and to listen to some sound examples. An iPad 2 or later is recommended to get a decent polyphony, but the app can also be run on an iPad 1 with lower polyphony or sample rate. For usage on iPhone, we recommend the models with large screens.

For hearing sound examples of the app, please visit the support page http://polaron.de/Jeuxdorgues/ .

On Boxing Day (December 26th), a gracious several findings of the streets, have I.

Boxing Day,  although a Canadian Tradition, turns out to be a fortunate time to hit the streets for some dive-finds. 

Today,  I found a nice and new goose down pillow, 


A nice thin hoodie | sweats | gloves combo, 


 and a small box of batch-made chocolates from The Monastery of the Angels,  in Los Angeles. 


It was a good day for collecting recyclables,  as southern California has been experiencing some extreme weather conditions, partly due to nature,  yet curiously enough,  last week's nuclear waste disposal in to the ocean by the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant seemed to have caused an ionic wind,  here in Los Angeles (at least,  I felt that it was correlative, from my perceptive disposition,  on the day that the news came out about it). It's been particularly cold, with some of the days being mild, yet I don't go outside, lately,  without wearing at least 2 sweater layers,  and typically 4 layers,  with thermal underwear long johns underneath.  










All in all,  it was a good day. Thanks,  everyone who contributed,  I'll make sure to redistribute some of the finds I found once I can get them in to the washer and dryer.  

A look at the route I took through Echo Park,  Silverlake, and DTLA.

The seagulls got a good late night snack. They're pretty cute. Lots of babies at the pier in Santa Monica, CA. It turns out, they're very cute as well

Seagulls at the Santa Monica Pier,  with several clutch babies venturing out in to the night, for socialization and some sandwiches. 


Check them out some time soon,  this holiday season,  out on the beach just below Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant on the pier. I wasn't sale to get the baby seagulls on film quarreling over the food, since they scurry away after they finish up nibbling.  They're worth an evening trip out to the Pier,  at some point.

Pigeon-watching hotspots to see around town #5: The USC Dumpster Pigeons.

  This flock of pigeons hadn't always lived here, which is curious, because I could trace back to days of pigeon-feeding that I'd do...
