I made a snarky comment about Twitter (I know, I’m super original) in the Micro.blog slack with regard to the pile of horseshit that is their “support”. Then, a few moments ago a tweet appeared in my tl linking to this from David Simon.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We haven’t yet had the in depth sessions, but the even Platform State of the Union is ripe with half-truths + empty stats that serve them.

Meghän Kane, at WWDC

Huh, they didn’t include that in the keynote.

I dislike Twitter threads as a replacement for blog posts and other longform web writing. However, information presented in shorter form can be more accessible, as pointed out by zhenotdelaney. Feels like the web is failing if Twitter is considered so good for this (it is).

In the world of Twitter, a woman will be silenced for posting crime statistics from the FBI.

Seriously, here on Micro.blog if you want to reply to this with “but the good people at Twitter” or any Men’s Rights bullshit, you can fucking miss me. I don’t want it.

My Actual Face

I have big news! Claire has been discharged from both the physio and occupational therapist whom she was seeing because of wrist problems. That’s a reduction of two frequent appointments at once. 💪

The kitties have been on the loose! Over the past week both of the girls have finally been allowed outside of the house, having spent two and half months establishing their base and getting vaccinations and medication to prepare their bodies.

Yes, that is correct: their bodies are literally ready. More pictures soon!

Avataaaaarrrr! (no, not that terrible film) My profile photo has changed, both on Micro.blog and everywhere else I maintain an avatar. It’s literally actually me, so there!

Speaking of avatars and social accounts, it’s fair to say that my viewpoint continues to literally always change, although I hope this post is part of a path whereupon I can just make my mind up and pretty much stick to an approach.

Actual writing for my blog will return proper after some annoying admin stuff has been completed, including a big pile of paperwork for sorting and finally going through our calendars to get them fully set up with everything we have planned and to better reflect the reality of how we spend our time

I am in contact with a local gym which looks promising, not least because of how approachable they have been via email; I am convinced more than ever that regular exercise will be a catalyst for genuinely making progress with regard to work productivity. At the very least I know I will be healthier and feel better, which is the most important thing either way.

Speaking of productivity, I have settled on some non-browser based tools for getting work done on my various projects; this is part of an experiment in which I seek to find the benefits, if they exist, in limiting my use primarily of Chrome but also of browsers in general.

It’s uh, been a busy month since my last update, including a decent amount of progress behind the scenes with regard to various projects…

I didn’t actually realise that until I started writing this post. It feels good to be surprised by progress. 😊
