Brennan Novak reminds me of a lovely book I saw called Folds for Designers — filled not even with origami but just folded paper. Beautiful shapes!
Got a lot of #gurdy turning done today. Result: two knobs, four strap buttons and two collars ready for touching up and use.
6232 #steps today
Turns out it’s possible to peel biscuits.
Thanks to my brother I am the proud owner of a shiny pedometer, and will be logging the number of steps I take every day here with #steps.
branch that’s great to hear, but it’s not my primary concern and not the reason I don’t want to use branch. My concern is that I don’t really want to be hosting my thoughts and/or identity in a place I don’t control.
Most of the time I would post the content here and duplicate it on the 3rd party site, linking back. In this specific case, being asked to log in with twitter purely for the privilege of asking to be part of a conversation was off-putting enough for me not to bother.
Chris Messina tbh I prefer to have actual discussions with people over IRC or hangout or other such medium, and use my website as a destination for solidified results of those discussions, and a broadcast medium to include others too. So I'd love to hear your comments on stuff I’ve said, perhaps in #indiewebcamp on freenode? :)
Chris Messina yeah, it does that the first time — as there’s no benefit to anyone apart from the site owner logging in yet, I haven’t fixed it. People keep thinking they can comment if they sign in, I’m not sure whether to allow it or reinforce that people shouldn't (I don't want to host other people's thoughts any more than I want to host my own thoughts elsewhere!). Comments accepted via Pingback :)
.@chrismessina briefly: I agree that, whilst I have a fair number of apps installed, very few of them get regular use. Interestingly IME there is little/no correlation between cost of app and frequency of use (my most expensive apps are music creation ones which get used rarely compared to, e.g. tweetbot, mail or safari).
This evening’s hacking is based around parsing and importing my #iOS diagnostic data — should be interesting to see if I can find any behavioural patterns.
(btw, I refuse to sign in to branch with twitter so they can send a tweet for me so you can let me write on your branch. Just… no :)
Current status: manually copying, pasting and emailing my iOS diagnostics information to myself so I can mine and visualise it. This is stupid.
Reading https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolescence has made me realise I have almost no memory of the thought patterns I used/how I thought earlier in my life.
Oh for goodness sake Yahoo Groups, Unicode isn’t that difficult. No wonder everyone uses google for mailing lists (apart, apparently, from South Brent #freecycle :/)
