The emoji aren’t displaying right in some RSS readers (native app versions, mainly). I’ll need to look into that.
Personally I think it looks like something a Final Fantasy character would wear…
I generally group by topic, but I make specific channels for certain sources. For example, I have an IndieWeb channel, a wargaming channel, but also a channel for Twitter as it might overwhelm the other channels.
I’m still experimenting with what works best though, so I might end up reorganising things again soon.
But what about those of us who don’t use Facebook or Instagram? Are we completely out of luck? I’ve mentioned this before, but the Community Team really need to stop relying on external social media sites *when you can use your own website to do much of the same thing*!
This write-up summarises my feelings about the iPad quite well. I
love the iPads I’ve owned over the years; at times they’ve been my primary computing device. My mum is still running my “iPad 2”, and my partner has my first generation iPad Mini — both run well enough for most things they want to do (although the Mini is going to need replaced this year). The iPad form-factor – to me – is the natural expression of Personal Computing for Most People.
The software has never quite clicked though, as you say, and it’s always the reason I end up retreating to having another class of device around. The more Apple tries to bring it closer to a “real” computer, the more it breaks down. A lot of the interactions in iPadOS 13 are so unintuitive I regularly forget they are there, or how to initiate them. I’d happlily pay a small charge for Slide Over to be removed completely. I’ve lost count of how often I’ve accidentally triggered it and found myself unable to dismiss the hovering app now getting in my way. During the public beta period I wrote multiple pieces of feedback that drag-and-drop actions triggered far too easily, making tap-and-hold actions needlessly difficult to execute on some interfaces. If anything, it feels like this has got worse as iPadOS 13 has matured.
I wish I had a good answer for where the software should go in the future, to fulfill the iPad’s potential. Even more, I wish Apple did too.
This is great to read – replies (or at least a reference to them) not appearing on your blog always felt a bit weird to me. I think this is a definite change for the better!
I go with the flow of inspiration. At the moment that’s on finishing my Delaque gang, but I can feel the pull of a Vampire army. It does mean projects can be a bit “stop-start” but it’s the best way I’ve found to avoid burnout
I’ve had lots of success with Steam’s Proton running pretty much any game I ask it to on Linux. Granted, I’m not trying to run the latest AAA’s, but I’ve found the success rate astonishing compared to even just 3-4 years ago. I haven’t dual-booted in a long time now.
It’s definitely something to think about. I use the Avatar Privacy plugin to mitigate a similar concern with Gravatar images, by caching them on my server… I should look at whether I can extend this to include all user images.
The biggest problem I’ve had with import/export has been the inability of iOS to correctly save the generated files as .opml from my Links page. Instead it downloads as .php. To change it I have to do a dance of save > move it to a particular folder so Working Copy can see it > rename in Working Copy.
While i understand your frustration at having to allow all text types to fix this bug, it will save me some hoop jumping.
Although, if I could subscribe to/sync with a network-hosted OPML file (automatically adding new subscriptions, etc), that would be even better! 😁
Glad to hear someone else thinks it’s an idea worth doing, and not just me 😃
On the feeds thing: I’d thought about doing a "last N items" list on the directory entry for a site, but that was likely to be a later addition… and I’m not sure if the extra processing necessary to poll feeds would be offset by the value added.
At the very least I was planning to include links to any detected feeds (found through rel="alternative" links), and a flag to say if a microformats-based feed was detected during the initial parsing.
You are right that it’s worth holding onto the domain, just in case the stars align. I’ve just renewed it.
Sharing in what context? Most Apple services default to sending over iMessage, but as far as I remember, they’re all just iCloud URLs that can be sent through any means
Bloody heck, it worked! I’ve finally solved something I’ve been banging my head against for months 🙌
If I were to have one complaint about Necromunda, it would be how many (big) books we had to carry for reference. I needed the main rule book + the House Gangs book. My opponent needed those + another book for the Genestealer Cult rules. Some of the campaign rules were only in the Dark Uprising book, and other things were in The Book of Ruin. In theory, we also needed the latest FAQ/Errata on top too. It’s all a bit… much? (and HEAVY!)
The Shibboleth documentation is the most frustrating I’ve come across. As well as being dense and jargon-y, half of the links point to older versions, which tell you “THIS IS OUT OF DATE!!!” leaving you to wonder if you should keep reading… https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/SP3/Home
I’ll try to put something together for you soon, but it might be a few days 👍
I’ve setup a few shortcuts on iOS to help make this easier. They use the Micropub plugin on the backend to let me post photos, likes, bookmarks and replies with just a couple of taps. For notes and articles I’ve mostly been using Ulysses of late.
I had to sit down on Saturday and figure out how old I’m going to be on my next birthday (37), because one of my kids asked. I spent most of the last year thinking I was 34 😅
As a reader, I follow several journalists’ websites through a RSS reader. Personally, I’d love it if:
a) more journalists had a website,
b) they wrote on it regularly, especially if it’s anything they’d write a long Twitter thread/tweetstorm for…
I haven’t even jumped on the 4K bandwagon yet, as I haven’t seen any compelling reason to upgrade my 32” 1080p Sony…
This has reminded me just how much I used to love watching Tomorrow’s World as a kid. It’d be fun to look back and see just how many other TW predictions either came true, or were close.
That’s it done – the “delete my account” process has been completed on all my Facebook-owned accounts. The FB account deletion won’t actually kick in for another 30 days or so, but Instagram should be gone already.
I’ve been pacing myself through The Witcher – 1-2 episodes a day – and it’s definitely felt a better experience than having a binge session. I suspect, if I wasn’t on holiday I’d be making time to watch it once a week, like "traditional" TV, as that’s all I’d fit in. Like The Verge, I think a release schedule like that would have worked very well for the show. It feels like The Witcher was made for it.
The way Netflix designs certain (most?) shows around the "dump it all at once for binge-watching" paradigm usually means I end up *not* watching those shows. They’re less enjoyable when stretched out to weekly-if-you’re-lucky viewing, when others have long since moved onto the next thing. There’s a pressure to watch it all *now* and I reflexively don’t use my leisure time for things that make me feel pressured.
