Colin Tudge explains the crucial difference between @OFRC and @oxfordfarming. The R stands for Real, and also for Radical. Start from what you want, then work out how do do it. http://www.campaignforrealfarming.org/2017/11/why-the-oxford-real-farming-conference-is-distinct-and-intends-to-remain-so/

Seeing White from John Biewen and Scene on Radio was far and away the most interesting and valuable series this year. @nwquah

(Partially) fixing webmention display

1 min read

Rather happy to have scratched a long-standing itch into submission. I use the semantic-linkbacks plugin to display webmentions on one of my WordPress sites. It has an option for displaying webmentions as facepiles, which keeps things neat. But my WordPress theme also displays webmentions as comments, which is mostly redundant. Not entirely, though, because a few webmentions contain actual content, which is not visible in the facepile. I could completely void display of the webmentions, but that loses the little bit of content there.

Fortunately, the latest master of the plugin has settings to display the facepile for  each kind of webmention, so I could stop it making facepiles for actual mentions. Then all I needed to do was hide the theme's display of any webmentions that are just likes or reposts. And that is easily done by adding

.p-like {
	display: none;
}

.p-repost {
	display: none;
}

to styles.css.

I'll probably have to revisit that if I ever get any other kinds of webmention, but for now I am content.

Just a quick check that I can take advantage of the new, twice-as-nice Twitter.

Just an old snap.

Narrowing things down. I can post a photo to Known from my desktop with OS X.

I don’t expect it to show up on micro.blog because that gets a feed of selected categories only, and Photos isn’t one of them.

How about an image in a post?

Jeremy Cherfas

Blast. I can’t seem to upload images to micro.blog or to WithKnown. I’ll have to work on that tomorrow.

So, double the characters for all on Twitter. Does this mean twice the outrage and hate, or will there be an outbreak of finely expressed, carefully nuanced peace, love and understanding?

iTunes 12.7.0 or maybe OS X 10.13 has stolen my song artwork. That is, it no longer appears in preview, although it is still visible in iTunes. I need this for podcast cover art. So here's hoping that it is there and will show in podcast players.
