Waiting for iCloud to sync 2 very basic jpeg scans and wondering about the people at Apple who have decided that this isn’t important enough to nail down.

I swear Apple could effectively put Dropbox out of business if they improved this.

Homescreen: February, 2022

Thinking about the crappy replies to Josh Wardle’s news.

This doesn’t help the web at all.

You’re going to be an arsehole about a free website? Guess what, now fewer people are motivated to make good free websites.

I feel like there was something I wanted to communicate about the seemingly illusory nature of human identity, the criteria we use to decide when someone no longer gets our empathy, how little we actually know about each other, especially online…

Is Micro.blog struggling to publish at the minute or is that just me?

The post was from Sunlit, which appears to have become slower when compared to the last round of publishing performance improvements to the app. Also, sharing to Sunlit from Photos is still broken.

New Kid on the Blog

Ulysses in 2021

Great to see Micro.blog included in the yearly review from Ulysses. This was included in their newsletter.

It would be good to see the Micro.blog team do this. Not even weekly; just something to help highlight events and the like.

Four months since my first Mac, and a month since the new Mac: on my phone I’ve started typing “System” when I want the Settings app.

0.91 + plug-ins: the new hotness

0.54 + custom theme: it just works

Ah I see Twitter Blue just lost yet another mark against Micro.blog.

The blissful lack of adverts has now been joined by the blissful lack of NFTs and the swill that accompanies it.

Time to give iCloud passwords a proper test-run.

Huh… export is not available for me in the 1Password app. 🧐

Edit: turns out you have to select a specific vault first.

Trying to use Apple Reminders in the same way I would Due and… yikes.

With the likes of Due and Fantastical I’ve come to expect a certain standard of natural language input. Neither Reminders nor Calendar from Apple can reach that standard.

Also makes me doubt Notes.

We’ve barely been living here, on the edge of the country, and already I find myself more and more drawn towards antipathy at the technological world; at the thought of constantly using a hand terminal; at the idea that these computers are automatically better than not.

The inability to remove Apple Music from the Music app is bad enough.

That you can’t do it when you’re not subscribed, and instead it turns entire sections of the app into nothing more than a billboard is gross.

What happened to “We can’t ship junk.”?

I spotted a Ghost blog without any labels on it.

Unsure if I should list that as a skill or problem.
