But excuse me, I’m not going to write about it anymore. Instead I’m going to do my best to do what I love and care about, professionally. It’s good for my mental health to pursue what makes me happy. It’s more important now than ever.

@vincent, Dealing with uncertain times

Today is a very good day to be listening to ZoΓ« Keating, whose music is always a welcome campanion whether I’m working on some physical chores, admin tasks, or @til. 🎢

TIL there are people who dislike Mary Poppins. I mean… wow.

Seeing people abuse pandemic-related hashtags and search on social media to literally endanger lives … it makes me thankful that Micro.blog doesn’t have search, hashtags, and “trending”.

For the price of saving lives we can all suffer the temporary burden of inconvenience.

I’ve come to a realisation:

Micro.blog will very likely be the last online community for which I create an account for something approaching personal use.

That feels… weird.

I hope people use more independent web technology, such as Micro.blog, and it helps them change their thinking about the monopolies.

Makes me sad hearing people say “Google Search just has everything” and the like. Ignoring long-term damage doesn’t help to prevent it.

The screenshot app I was relying on doesn’t have a proper iPad app. πŸ˜’

Also can’t easily find a cross-platform app for sharing links, whilst iCloud sharing continues to be underwhelming in this regard.

Looks more and more like Dropbox is the winner here.

Quick update for @til:

  • Have mostly caught up with the Update posts. They’re now back on a good schedule.
  • History page is fully updated.
  • Will soon post the back-dated editions of The Macro Report.
  • Other regular post types will soon return.
  • Working on something new!

You know those jokes people make about Windows and updates?

It’s all true. πŸ˜’
