Intersecting milk cartons is indeed cool, as Chris noted. Equally cool, maybe more so, is the Miuri fold, which I learned about in the Christmas Economist. https://www.economist.com/christmas-specials/2018/12/18/origami-spreads-its-wings

#Hashtags & HTML

1 min read

Once again, there is chatter about how @Withknown deals with hashtags and HTML I still believe that it often removes a hashtag from the content of an Instagram description, sent here by OwnYourGram. I'll test that in a moment. And there certainly were problems with certain characters in Titles and body. So this is a test of this <- and that.

Learn something new every day. I can use email to post to this site with Quill. Never needed it before, but good to know.

Dear reporters seeking to impress me,

“Exponentially” does not mean “very large”.

Yours etc.

Chris, I don't know what got you into all this strong names stuff, but I want to take the opportunity to point to my own pet peeve and a fine band, together at https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/eagles-point-the-way

I stopped sharing photo posts to micro.blog because they were being duplicated. Pretty sure now that's because the RSS contains the image twice, as part of the CDATA and again as an enclosure. Not sure whether to fix in @WithKnown or ask @help at micro.blog to ignore enclosure.

Quite by coincidence, I'm sure I just yesterday listened to Malcolm Gladwell and Dave Hill talking about Lords of Chaos and the black metal scene. https://brokenrecordpodcast.com/#/episode-7-dave-hill/

I've always fond RSS indispensable. As for tools creating better ways to surface stuff, Newsblur does allow you to train it, which to me seems more useful than using an algorithm to train me.

Absolutely we need more and better tools, but the basics are definitely there for the major CMSs and even more so for people who are comfortable developing their own sites.

Just wondering why @adactio's sparklines contain only 131 points on the x-axis. Maybe because a day on which nothing is posted is not recorded? Getting ready to publish my own first sparkline and want to do the right thing.
