Disappointed to see that things that used to just work on Apple computers have been taken away.
No print services in the Photos app means I can’t send calendars as gifts easily.
No more syncing of just a few treasured photos to my phone via iTunes.
A few years ago I photographed many of the little things I like to keep near me on desks I use. I thought it was an interesting record of the items I like to keep around because they remind me of places and people.
I’ve been fascinated listening to the Grenfell Tower Enquiry podcast for the last few months. Especially this week when they have moved to questioning expert witnesses. I was shocked by how much flammable material was present in the refurbished tower.
Moving to blot rather takes me back to when I used a previous Dropbox blogging solution to move from Tumblr. Because It and Pelican have such similar metadata the move should a ‘skoosh’ as we say in Scotland.
All this talk about @blot convinced me to give it a try and I blame @jack I like Pelican but the need to build it back at base is occasionally a burden and I’ve never got my head round scaling images for mobile.
I’ve de-eyedroppered my Edison Collier pen and this is the first day using it. While I miss the huge ink capacity it’s nice not having inky fingers all day.
At this time of year it strikes me that one of the big advantages of Siri shortcuts is I can still do useful things with my phone while wearing gloves.
I completed my hi-fi this weekend, adding a separate phono preamp. Apparently I was the first person in the UK to buy a Moon Audio 110LP v2 (but only by chance).
Why did ‘War & Peace’ become the international standard to refer to when apologising for a big print job clogging-up a shared printer?
My first week cycling home in the dark and I see the Nukem®︎ Gamma-Ray™ 2000 is still a popular bike light. This year’s model has been upgraded to 10kW of collimated laser power, with a strobe mode that can literally etch morse code onto the inside of your eyeballs!
My daughter needs survey responses on logo design and Comic Con for her Advanced Higher Design course. I figured Micro.blog might have a higher-than-average interest in design and comic books. Thank you if you have the time.
Daughter no. 1 and I are off to Aberdeen for a university open day. I finally get to use the line “we leave at daybreak!”
Just for fun, and to settle a long disagreement with daughter no. 2, I’ve crested a ONE QUESTION survey.
