Not that he needs it, but let me offer @matigo as my Micro Monday suggestion.

As I start work on my monthly review, it occurs to me that despite having signed up for @belle's excellent roundup of reviews, and checking my spam folder, I've never received a single one.

I am **very** firmly of the opinion that cross posting original stuff from one site to another ought to be a considered decision on each occasion. Yes, that’s just me. It could be you too. Add a little friction; you know it makes things better.

Better download that then, pronto. Thanks for the tip-off.

Jeremy Cherfas

Best suggestion I can offer is to ask specific questions. There are also some superb introductions, like this one https://adactio.com/journal/7698 that explain the basic ideas.

That reminds me, I should take a look at https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/putting-my-house-in-order-phase-2 and see what's changed.

Jeremy Cherfas

Good going.

In fact a far better answer to the question "Why do bell peppers come in different colors" is "Because plant breeders made that happen by selecting different varieties".

Jeremy Cherfas

Can't think why a respected organisation would link to this. It is wrong on so many levels. Final colour at maturity is a heritable trait. Different varieties mature to different colours.

You can get good help

I managed to fix a long-standing niggle with my practice this afternoon, thanks to some great help from cweiske and others. For the longest time Quill, a micropub client that I can use to publish here, wasn't showing me an option to syndicate directly to Twitter. That meant that I tended reply to tweets and stuff right there in the silo and not bring them back here. Fair enough, especially when a reply without context is like an egg without salt. But we figured it out, in part by that old standby of "switch it off and then switch it back on again". That got things working, and was enough of an impetus to upgrade WithKnown to the latest build. And so far, everything looks good.
