Until I can afford to renew my custom domain, my blog is still available at the Micro.blog domain: simonmumbles.micro.blog
Also, until I’ve updated the blog with better links I’m available via email: email@example.com
The latest iteration of the Sunlit beta is slick. Quick question for @cheesemaker and @manton: are feature requests better via;
- the feedback button in Testflight;
- Help forum;
- or on the timeline?
I’ve managed to fit in little bits of work for @TIL here and there during the move. I probably won’t get anything else done for a few days but there is one thing I can share, even though it is a WIP:
The donations for TIL, via Buy Me A Coffee now includes membership options.
The big announcements from the MacStories team are fantastic. I especially enjoy seeing RSS getting so much attention.
Timezone bump for @TIL:
I’ve put Today I Learned on a break. All of my time and energy is being used on moving home.
I have not set a date for bringing TIL back but I will still be around on Micro.blog and spending some of my free time working on future updates for the project.
Testing the upgraded Micro.blog hosting. 👀
TIL On a Break
As of today @TIL is on a break, and will return as soon as possible.
The move is all-consuming at this point and I am confident that recent updates have put the project in good enough condition to survive.
I’ll still be about. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
Not renewing Apple Music. Going back to my local library, with possible sharing if there is a good enough service (I have an iTunes Match sub at the minute).
My primary tactic is to save up for a good file player, probably from Sony, and no longer rely on the internet.
A few months ago I countered Manton Reece’s concern over iPad pricing with the notion that the much more expensive price of an iPad Pro from an M1 MacBook was justified.
I have since changed my mind. The inferior software dents the iPad’s value by a significant amount.
Question for @jean: approximately how much alcohol is required to get through all of this moving nonsense. 😓
After a busy week on @TIL, the recently named newsletter Post Haste will help you get caught up!
The next issue of ICYMI will be released on Monday. 👀
Well that was a pretty good week for @TIL.
If you missed it or like getting letters, there is a newsletter for that: Post Haste
I’m writing the next issue of the weekly recap, ICYMI, and it will be out on Monday. 👀
Say hello to the redesigned @TIL. 😎
Welcome to TIL
Today I Learned is the Micro.blog companion and guide, and I am the author.
With @TIL you can find your way around Micro.blog, whether you’re new to the platform or have been here for a while already. You can get hold of different resources; including tips, guides, links, updates, and the weekly edition of the newsletter.
Here are some links to get you started:
I’ll continue to share information and links about TIL but everything you need will always be published either on the site or through one of the external channels.
Welcome to Micro.blog. I hope you find the community and the platform as warm and authentic as I have. ☺️
See you on the timeline!
Looking forward to releasing some @TIL updates tomorrow. I nearly pushed the button on a few things early but remembered how much I enjoy adding a bit more polish and publishing with a more intentional approach.
Related: I love how much control you can have on the web.
One of the things I like a lot about the community on Micro.blog is that people can get all hyped up about a new app (Glass, lately), and I just don’t care… but! I still find it possible to have good conversations and read good conversations, and not once do I feel excluded.
Just took a quick look in Discover and saw a bunch of people who either haven’t presented at Micro Camp or I haven’t seen in the chatroom there.
This reflects the way in which Micro.blog has grown in a quiet way, without the founders and enthusiasts yelling at you about it.
