So I tried to read this story from The Star today. I follow The Star's RSS feed, and this story showed up in Feedly. I clicked on it and was immediately presented with the "Subscribe to read more" screen.
I understand why news organizations do this, but I don't think it's a good move. If someone subscribes to your RSS feed, that means you don't need to depend on the aggregators to drive that traffic, you should encourage that. All this does is encourage me to unsubscribe from the RSS feed and only read The Star through Apple News or Google AMP.
The Daily Podcast is always great, but today's was particularly good to understand how anti-choice groups are challenging Roe https://
I shared a story from Apple News today here on my blog. Usually when I do this I'll expand the apple.news URL into the publication's canonical URL for posting. Normal this works fine. For this article it did not. It appears that this Scientific American story is only available through the Apple News app. This is concerning. I don't like articles like this being isolated from the web. Hopefully this is just an exclusivity period or something and it'll show up on Scientific American's website at some point in the future.
We finished watching Russian Doll last night. We binged the entire season in 2 nights, it was a great show. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something interesting to watch.
The hard drive in my Windows machine that died and that I thought was the drive holding the OS actually wasn’t. It turns out, the surviving drive is the one with the OS, but the drive that failed had the boot record on it which is why I was unable to boot.
I was able to determine this by downloading the Windows 10 USB installer, booting up with that and inspecting the surviving drive. I managed to restore the boot information and boot successfully into Windows 10.
This is a relief. All that was on the other drive was game installs, most of which I can reinstall by downloading them from Steam or similar cloud libraries.
This is despicable. If you can’t, or refuse to answer reporters’ questions, you don’t deserve to govern https://
This is a great post, perfectly describes the problems with the modern web. https://
