Higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids from prescription fish oil showed no effect on CV events

Bummer! Or maybe not. Hard to say.

Higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids from prescription fish oil showed no effect on CV events

"Fish oils increase the risk of atrial fibrillation substantially, and there is no solid evidence that they help the heart in any way ... It's a sad story for cardiology."

Pockets!

I made some trousers with unusual pockets, and I think they’re good.

On Trouser Pockets

I came to this via John Naughton's website (he doesn't say how he got there), and I have no idea who Sam Bleckley is, but in re-thinking the trouser pocket he has done something rather wonderful, maybe even genius.

I'd buy a pair in a flash.

Everybody and their dog has suddenly recognised Substack and its ilk, which is not unexpected. But I particularly liked what Robin Sloan had to say in a recent newsletter of his:

The rush will come, the rush will go. We’ll still be here.

Maybe its because I am older and slower, but I feel this more and more these days. Fads come, fads go, and some things endure. That suits me just fine, even if some of those enduring things are only a couple of decades old.

This is odd. The previous two posts have failed to post to m.b and I have no great expectation that this one will get through either. @help

But in practice, Trump campaign officials were supporting continued vote counts where the president was behind and vigorously opposing them where he was ahead.

Troubleshooting blues

It can be so hard to debug IndieWeb problems when they arise in Known. For now, this should be a webmention of the linked post, because Chris Aldrich reported a problem. But even if this works, I may need to go outside this installation to test properly. Or, perhaps, try webmention.rocks.

One step closer to PESOS from Instagram

I had been barking up the wrong tree, trying to address `photo/edit` in order to create a photo post in WithKnown. Going through my old notes, I figured out how to do it through `micropub/endpoint` instead, which makes a whole lot more sense. Probably I should have started there.

Anyway, I know have the bare bones of being able to post automatically to WithKnown from the RSS feed of my Instagram account. Now I "just" need to build out all the rest; read the RSS feed, extract the relevant bits of data, construct the API request and bung it off.

Which will probably take forever, but hey.
