Nice to see someone else trying to revive blog carnivals in an IndieWeb context. Sara Jakša's first taster appeals on two levels; it is a blog carnival and it is about food. Count me in.
I just received an email that included this message in the signature:
“Sent from my iPhone, forgive predictive autocorrection errors😀”
So, what, you're just giving up any semblance of care?
The swifts are back.
Just put the finishing touches on tomorrow's Eat This Newsletter, a definite bus-stop edition. Sign up at https://
New edition of Eat This Newsletter, throwing shade on citrons in Italy and biocrusts in Arizona, not to mention Greek inflation busters, sustainability commitments and a look beyond coronation quiche. Read it at https://
Ghosted on Apple TV+ is a very entertaining romp.
Matt Webb refuses to normalise milk from cows, and has some fun observations about how to specify the "milk" in his flat whites and regional variations in London. I don't take any "milk" in most of the coffee I drink, so not an issue for me.
This a very useful estimate, because I never really have a clue how much mobile data I am using. ½GB a day is probably a good guide.
This is the exact opposite of my experience, as a certified old fart. I learned to code Fortran on an IBM 370, then we got PDPs and I embraced Basic and later a bit of assembler. Then went dormant for a while so I missed everything. Now catching up.
I wonder what it would take to adapt the WithKnown Twitter plugin to use V2 of the API? Might need to look into that before throwing in the towel completely.
It has been a very long time since my last refereed paper was published, but here we are again. What is Wrong with Biofortification makes the case that staples with enhanced levels of micronutrient are not a good way to tackle micronutrient deficiencies. https://
A battle lost to protect the privacy of website visitors.
Is today the day I stop being able to POSSE here from @withknown? One failed yesterday, but that could have been an error.
If you are into #tinnedfishdatenight -- a thing I learned about for my newsletter -- you might want to consider mercury levels. Sean Wittenberg talked to me about Safe Catch, and you can listen on Spotify at https://
I've always used bayonet connection for the kind of lightbulb that does not screw in but is inserted and twisted a little.
One reason I love Rome: some douchebag scraped my car, actually breaking the fixtures for the parking light. Yesterday I took it to the neighbourhood bodyshop (yes, there is one) and it was fixed this morning, plus most of the paint the douchebag had left removed, for €50.
Trying once again to get a grip on my social media silos by taking another look at Monocle, and thinking this time it might stick.
And there I was, foolishly thinking that somehow a weather Station had blocked Chuck's work that had been in progress.
And having spent a happy couple of hours tinkering with occasional bits of success, I'm giving up again.
My conclusion now is that WithKnown actually does a lot of the heavy lifting itself, with reverse geolookups and so forth. Maybe try something a lot simpler, and send only lat-long
Calculating the signature not as easy as it seemed originally
At home, thinking about a location shortcut for WithKnown, and starting with the easy stuff.
There has to be a better music library manager and player for OSX than Apple's Music app, but which one? Your recommendations, please. Please!
TIL about the Bismarck Archipelago in the Bismarck Sea. Who knew? Not me, obviously.
My Dad would have been 100 today. I can't say I miss him every day, because that would not be true. But still.
I wish I knew why @launchcenterpro had suddenly decided to lock most of the functionality, but hey, that kind of behaviour is unlikely to encourage me to pay anything.
Just to follow up and note that after carefully studying and then doing the set-up steps in the piece I linked, and then chasing down missing modules after nuking all `venvs` and tinkering in `.zshrc` everything seems to be operational. For now ...
Prompted by In Our Time, we (re)watched Citizen Kane last night. It really is very good, and holds up remarkably well. Lots more to look out for, thanks to the discussion.
I liked rss.app, but in all honesty is just is not worth $8.32 a month for me. I'll find another way ...
Spending time cleaning up my RSS feeds in Newsblur and it isn't easy. I can export the OPML, and work directly on that, but is there a tool that will let me do so easily? Codebeautify's treeview doesn't let me edit the tree. opml.org seems dead. Is there anything else?
My morning is disrupted. Something seems to be wrong @gocomics and I cannot get my daily dose of Nancy by Olivia Jaimes
Indeed. Currently editing my next episode, from @ECLLD recent meeting in Budapest, celebrating how the new EU reg on OHM is allowing farmers and food producers to be more sustainable and nutritious.
Hey @help. If I were to switch to a paid account (keeping my own domain) is there a way to import old posts from the RSS feed created by an export from Known?
Feels stupidly good to be deleting ~5000 spam emails (since 9/21) and ~62,000 emails from Trash. I mean, they don't cost me anything directly, but still good to clear out. Also deleted everything pre 1/1/2018; nobody needs more than five years of email archive, do they?
New Years Eve at some point crossing the Atlantic. Time zones are hard.
I appreciate that other podcasters include transcripts of their shows, but can't you go the extra step of actually checking the transcript against delivery, as those speechifying press releases put it?
New edition of Eat This Newsletter is out, with a few choice items and a reminder that the next podcast episode will go live on 24 December, for reasons. Read the newsletter at https://
Well, that's a shame. I get a message saying No video with supported format and MIME type found. I was looking forward to watching "yeasty fireworks".
This sounds exactly like Amotz Zahavi's Handicap Principle. Any signal should involve a cost, to prevent cheats from issuing false signals.
Either I've enjoyed a step change in fitness -- avge heartrate during HIIT down from 125 to 116 -- or Apple has changed what my watch is doing. I know where my money is.
Thanks Google. Three of the top 10 search terms that brought people to my podcast site involved wheat pennies. Alas, none wanted to hear about wheat and the growth of empires. https://
Just finished tomorrow’s Eat This Newsletter so I am going to take a nap and then read, because I can.
Shout-out to the intelligent, attractive, and discerning people of Ireland 🇮🇪 for helping put the podcast in the charts there. Brazil also gets an honourable mention 🇧🇷 for beating its previous best by quite a margin.
TIL just how easy it is to write functions in zsh to automate little chains.
Broke out my IndieWeb reader and added some feeds to get going again, thanks to your prompt.
Is that the standard Activity display you have? My watch is a 6SE and I do not usually see heart rate because the strap is loose and never have the map or weather.
What's missing, for me, is a solid social reader that is as easy to use as the Big Silo. I'm using one now, which gives a bit more context that a simple RSS feed and allows me to reply, I hope. A single place to interact, rather than N different places.
Primed for Power: A Short Cultural History of Protein downloaded and ready to be read. Thanks @jessfanzo for the link to https://
