@TeksavvyCSR My DSL in Ajax has been down for an hour or so now, any idea when service will be restored?

 

I think I've found a way to post quick status updates to my blog using Pretext rather than Drafts. I like Drafts, and I'd probably use it if it just kept plaintext files in iCloud Drive.

 

This is a blog post from Notes.app on iOS

 

Looking at using Drafts to publish to my blog. In fact, this one was done using it šŸ¤žšŸ¼

 

Shitty weather for Halloween this year ā˜”ļø The girls made it most of the way around the block, but eventually just asked to go home.

 
 

Shadowkeep is just so good

 

I have nothing against advertising, it's the tracking. Imagine if people had to wear a camera recording everywhere they went and everything they did and submit that footage before being able to watch a show or purchase a newspaper all with the promise of better ads.

 

This is great, really well done https://youtu.be/8KLHUzQDfbE

 

The reminders migration in iOS 13 took a long time for me. But, everything appears to be there now and is syncing correctly.

 

Well, think I'm done with Dropbox now. I switched all my stuff to iCloud Drive quite a while ago, so I really have no need to have it on my computers anymore. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/07/dropbox-silently-installs-new-file-manager-app-on-users-syst...

 

Trump certainly is running the country like one of his companies https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/07/12/politics/mnuchin-congress-letter-debt-crisis/index.html

 

Shadowkeep looks so good, I can't wait until September!

 

Google Calendar outage, well that certainly frees up my day šŸ˜Š

 

Cute animation on Apple Canada's website today https://www.apple.com/ca/

 
 

The girls are trying to learn Spanish via Duolingo so they can have conversations that Lisa and I can't understand.

 

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 don't mind this, but what I do mind is the fact that I can read the entire article though Apple News, as well as the Google AMP version (though surprisingly not the Facebook version).


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://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/17/podcasts/the-daily/alabama-abortion-law-roe-wade.html
