Hm, I wonder if I can modify that for my package delivery focus. - Turn off Mute Unknown Callers…

Conversation

@hawaiiboy Yep. That’s a concern. According to what I’ve read, if the Arctic, Greenland and (worst) - Antarctic ice melts, we’re looking at a sea level rise of 77 meters. A lot of urban settlements in that zone. I’m also a bit afraid that nature handles it by sending cold water down the coast of USA, and disrupting the Golf-stream, thus making Scandinavia freezing. Nature can hold a grudge.

Conversation

@hawaiiboy I was thinking about this today. The hole in the ozone layer. They (mostly) stopped using CFC’s and some other gasses, and the vital ozone layer has to a large extent been healing since then. That means, not only can we act to repair prior damage, but it’s obvious that we can do a lot of damage to the environment.

Good reasons to be cheerful today!

@kimahlberg I’ll have a look at my last bill and their mails tomorrow.

@kimahlberg Sure! Send it to oeauran(at)gmail.com. I’m calling it a night pretty soon, but I can have a look at it tomorrow.

Conversation

@kimahlberg It might be 25% here in Norway too, (the usual sales tax). My provider adds 1 øre to each kWh they buy from the power companies on Nordpool, then there’s a 49kr fee/mo that is what they earn per customer.

Just got Cory Doctorow’s Chokepoint Capitalism. Excerpt: «Three massive conglomerates own the three record labels and three music publishers that control most of the world’s music. They designed the streaming industry, dominated by Spotify, which itself is (or was) partly owned by those same three labels. When Disney swallowed 21st Century Fox, a single company assumed control of 35 percent of the US box office. Google and Facebook have a lock on the digital ads that are wrapped around music, videos, and news online. Google, along with Apple, is the gatekeeper of everything mobile, giving it a massive cut on games, books, music, and movies.» Excerpt from Chokepoint Capitalism: How to Beat Big Tech, Tame Big Content, and Get Artists Paid Rebecca Giblin

@sod I was awed by this tonight! I started to type “bar”, because I wanted to search for “barlind”, but then “bass barret” came up on the suggestions, and it was a post about one of my favorite bass players, Aston “Family Man” Barret (of Bob Marley and The Wailers fame).

@KyleEssary This post was probably 6 years overdue, but I made it, so might as well show it. All things come to an end though, as the song said, for better or worse. I feel like this is kind of an interlude, so hope sweet music is up next period at whitehouse.gov.

@spgreenhalgh I didn’t mean to criticize you for it, I just happen to know someone that has been a driver for them. I guess most professional drivers can be edgy because of how little they earn and how much they have to do. I believe it is still possible to restrain oneself though.

Conversation

MAGA

Conversation

@spgreenhalgh Those drivers ought to get better paid and have better working conditions in general. They are almost unable to go to the toilet for hours to keep the schedule, and are given all too tight schedule. Management should give more of the earnings to the drivers. Not unique to UPS, but I believe they’re some of the worst off. All that said, there’s no reason to be like a jerk in traffic. 🚚

@jeroensangers I think I misunderstood you. I have a set Home Screen that I’m happy about, it’s only the background I’d like to have changed during the day, and aligned with Focus Modes to allow or deny certain people and apps that can give me notifications, (or not, rather).

Conversation

@petebrown It’s by many regarded as the macos. If you don’t need it, maybe try selling it on eBay.

@jeroensangers Really? I hadn’t thought about that. I’m going to let it be only Do Not Disturb or nothing for a while though, and hope the wrinkles get ironed out soon.

@renevanbelzen You’re right. That’s how it is. Luckily I’m not very skilled in anything anymore. 😅 Last year I thought about doing Inktober, but it came so sudden upon me that I decided to postpone it until this year. But…I read the rules, and drawing on an iPad wasn’t allowed as I understood it. I was looking forward to trying that out for real.

Conversation

@manton I remember my Tivoli Radio app gave me Dutch language when I specifically chose Norwegian. Not a very good app even if it didn’t.

@toddgrotenhuis I was positively surprised by the book, that it was so straight on from the beginning. In senior high, I was in the trade & office program, and after mandatory military training, I went to an IT academy, where we had business and leadership as one of the classes, but in neither of them was the fundamental principles or key elements of a business taught. That reminds me, I got to write them down, although they were in the introduction.

Conversation

@manton I don’t know exactly why, but last night, when I looked up a lot of titles I have in my Audible library (in Epilogue), I got many hits in what I (strongly) believe is in Dutch, (NL). A common mistake in the computer world is to conflate NL and NO. I recon more than half the results of each search for a given title came back in Dutch. I can’t remember this being the case before.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis I hope I don’t take bad notes… I haven’t been studying for 30 years, and I can’t remember even how that was like(!) I tried to capture the key points… I’m sure there’s someone selling summaries/key points for this book on Amazon, but I won’t look. 📚

@pimoore I looked at my admin panel at the domain registrar yesterday and was somewhat amazed that there were 32 domains. I’ve been marking a lot for non-renewal, but apparently they still linger.

Conversation

@pimoore @gaby @zorn Yep, same here…

Conversation

@fahrni Thanks, you too! ❤️😊

Conversation

@hollyhoneychurch Oh, we did? I’m sorry @evie, my mind isn’t always as good as it used to be… It’s soon peak moss season here.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis I will. Won’t start until tomorrow at the earliest though. 📚🔊

Conversation

@vincent Clearly not a fanboi! Refreshing.

Conversation

@Denny I got curious, and signed up. Pending. User: “oddz”. @pimoore

Conversation

@pratik Yes, I hope that will be addressed in the process.

Conversation

I must say the Micro.Blog iOS Beta is pretty good already! Yes, it’s missing some pieces, but they will come. And drag-to-refresh is working perfectly!

Conversation

@maique It is! To bad I have some chores to do… ☀️😊

@maique When I was at job training 10 years ago, they had a Thai cook that made just that. I had just gotten my iPad, and was very protective about it.

@maique I just played with Darkroom to make myself a MAGA profile picture! 😅

Conversation

@maique Oh! Cool! Must…update…

Conversation

@frostedechoes Agree! He’s making many nice ones. At the moment I’ve made some very personal ones (so not sharing), with one of my favorite apps: Vintage Logo Creator. @maique @pimoore

Conversation

@maique I wrote them, asking if they could make it so that I can have different ones with each Focus Mode, hopefully…

Conversation

@Miraz I have to be on the pills all year now. I used to stop taking them in September in the past, but then two years in a row I had to start taking them again, so now it’s all year. I’ve heard a few taking shots for it, so I might either get that next spring, or the “one pill last all year” that it’s been talked about. I don’t know the status of that yet, so might have to check with my GP.

Conversation

@Miraz Due to my allergies, spring has not been my favorite since I was a tween. I guess we’ll have our first frost-night within a week or two. I like summer better than I used to, but autumn even better. Sitting inside and reading a book is not frowned upon any more. ☺️📚

Conversation

@Mandalorian I hear you. However I am going to suck every drop out of the flask that is the joy of autumn. I must not let the circumstances dictate how I am going to feel. I have food. I have coffee. I have a roof over my head. And I really like autumn. 🥺🥹🍁🍂

Conversation

@jayeless I believe it was @duckrowing that wrote that article. I just got the 13 mini, and although I like it a lot, it could preferably have been a tad smaller, and not have the (Apple silicone) case be wider at the top than at the bottom (it’s not good to hold). I urge you both to forward your opinion to Apple Feedback, as I also am going to do.

Conversation

@Miraz Looking very cute! She’s getting more agreeable temperatures by the day now I guess? We’re close to the first frosty night here.

Conversation

@olof Wow! That’s pretty good! I can’t remember when I last were that active… back when I was in the navy probably.

@MitchWagner Yes. I’ve had bad days at work bc of it… 🥺

@MitchWagner True that.

@joshua Nice pictures! Sometimes I think they are big rabbits. 🦘

Conversation

@jayeless Yes, but I live in a home for people with mental health issues, so that’s the reason. There have been one tenant that had a rabbit, and one that had a chinchilla, so I don’t think it’s impossible, but because us that live here can become, and have been hospitalized at one point, the staff sometimes have had to step in with care for animals, so it’s understandable. I would love to have a cat, but at the same time it’s a commitment that I have to think through. 😺

Conversation

@jayeless Nice catto! I’d really like to be a Lynx stepfather, but a Maine Coon is more manageable. Too bad the rules for having a cat where I live is pretty strict, one have to apply and everything…

Conversation

@pimoore Yes, that’s one of the things that makes it awesome. That and the community.

Conversation

@Mandalorian It’s more a “social media” to me than a blogging platform, but it also is that, whenever I get the urge to commit to a (hopefully) thought through article. I guess it’s about perspective though. I don’t consider most of what I share as blogging.

@Mikehendley You have the most refined artistic abilities!

Conversation

@pratik I got it from Amazon at one point in time too. Thought I maybe could try to understand some of the reasons for the genocidical mindset. After reading somewhere that the book was so poorly written, I decided I didn’t bother, so I erased it from my account, just in case. Interesting that he have his hand on a translated book on the cover photo. The swastika is a Indian symbol originally isn’t it?

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis At least it proves that gravity still is working. #Newton

Conversation

Conversation

@Moondeer Cool! I wish I would do that too. I kind of hold my arms stretched out and slide over the ground with one leg in front of the other, like it’s with cowboy boots on hard packed snow.

Conversation

@teisam Jeg tror ingen er sykere enn meg når jeg har influensa eller magasjau. 🥵🤮🤢

Conversation

@Moondeer And I thought I wondered about many strange things! 😅 I most often dream that I float in midair about 10” over the roads where I grew up, and just before I am home a big square hole in the road appears, and I fall in. I’m not sure if I can only float 10” over the ground, or if this hole somehow has a gravitational pull.

Conversation

@jeremycherfas That’s sensible. I wish I had remembered that.

@Mandalorian Not at all! Some of my best moments has been at the doctor’s office. 👨🏻‍⚕️🩺

@teisam Er det kald vind opp Nordre, eller er du tilbake i 🐅 staden? Håper uansett det gir seg fort. Kvinner sier ingen er så syke som menn som er forkjølet, (sarkastisk), men det er jo sant!

@manton Ok. 👍

@bradenslen VERY interesting! Even in Miss Marple movies that Agatha Christie didn’t like the character, (like Margareth Rutherford’s), she had character, and although ridiculed by law enforcement and men in general, she’d always come strong out of it.

Conversation

@warner I like that! Haven’t finished the 4000w book yet.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin Yes.

Conversation

@Miraz That is true. Especially in the years before the Crimea annexation until now. You are also right about looks and clothing for women leaders or public figures in general being the topic often more than their views and opinions. I think myself that I am balanced between the sexes, but I ought not to comment negatively or make fun of looks or quirks at all. After all, I’m not exactly a bowl of fruit myself.

@SimonWoods 🤔👍

@martinfeld Check the second address now…

Conversation

@pratik There isn’t any… 🤔

Conversation

@martinfeld I just tried sending it again, from a different address. I haven’t got any email about it bouncing. 🤔

Conversation

@Miraz Eventually that may automatically start a recording. Maybe iOS 17? Yes, looked to me like he’s done it before.

Conversation

@odd @munish I couldn’t find the option on Battery in settings… (I have the 13 mini).

Conversation

@Miraz This is rubbish! 😂 I love seeing such robotty things. Would be cool if you got the whole sequence some time.

Conversation

@martinfeld Yes, I saw it, and replied. Didn’t you get it?

Conversation

@Miraz Glad to hear! Ah, no, I eventually had to get up. Wide awake now. 😃

Conversation

@Munish I don’t have it on, I might check it out.

@miraz Just checking in on you. Missed you from the feed tonight. (I woke up at 2:30 🙄). Hope everything is going well.

@benwerd A friend of mine had Sprint, Viggo, Lucky Luke & Asterix Albums while growing up. I don’t remember it being colonialist or racist, but my mind may have glossed over that, because the times were different then, and I was young and stupid.

Conversation

@philippedostert I don’t think I’ve ever heard that one before. Not one of her greatest for sure. Recently I’ve re-discovered “Witness”, from her debut album. I don’t think I had that one on repeat in 1984, as I did some of the other ones. 🎵

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Is this a first*, or does it happen every now and then? *) In living memory.

Conversation

@mjdescy Agree 💯. Love how the artwork from albums blend into the Lock Screen too.

Conversation

@manton Mine usually doesn’t show up until after 18:00 local time, so 42 minutes-2h, maybe.

@dancohen 😘🐿️ ⬅️ Only in theory though. (They have sharp teeth!)

@cheesemaker That ought to be blown up on a canvas. Very nice!

Conversation

@baldur I’ve only just seen it on an iPhone, and I don’t hate it, but it’s less readable than I’d like, and very messy.

Conversation

@maique I think I’ve felt warm rain only once in Norway. 😅 I actually love rain, (within reason). Rain splashing on the window at night is especially nice. A read before turning in for the night. 🌦️📚

Conversation

@adders Insta-add.

Conversation

@maique A good reason as any! You’re not spoiled with rain I take it? Makes for interesting photos for sure.

Conversation

One reason I get to question why I bother with a Microsoft Office 365 subscription every time their apps update is that I have to log in again. E V E R Y T I M E!

@maique Pictures are awesome! Intriguing because the guesses you have to make.

Conversation

@odd Another idea: VR big chess set with two players and unlimited but present viewers.

Conversation

@JMaxB Yes, maybe. I tried to find that one on Netflix, HBO and iTunes without luck. I might have to get it on DVD.

@joshuapsteele A Norsk Bibel 88/07 translation. It’s a zip-lock mini-format, so I can take it with me.

@vincent Do you have a GripMaster, or a tennis ball? 🎾 Might help. Also some spare time not coding.

@vincent That sounds terrific! I have both.

@vincent Do you have an invite? 😃

@jean That’s pretty close! Is the movie good? Haven’t seen it, but I like Tilda as an actor.

@Mandalorian I’m sorry that you’re not feeling well, and your car, good thing your wife is ok. Try to remember when that moose was smooching you! 😘🦌

Conversation

@sod Good morning! Hope the election went well. 🇸🇪 I found a Hugo theme I’ll consider porting. Thanks to info about the Inspect Browser from @pimoore I’m going to try doing it on an iPad. (I might decommission my Mac soon-ish).

@dubh Hope you’ll get through it soon! I’ve escaped so far, but I’m already fatigued, so hoping I don’t catch it. 🤞😔

@pratik I don’t mind touching someone’s feet, but nobody dare touch mine!

Conversation

@odd I think I spelled that wrong, laying, not lying of course.

Conversation

@Cheri ☺️👍

Conversation

@KimberlyHirsh Yes, in my case lying like a lady. I’m up now though, but still in touch with my slight femininity. ☺️

Conversation

@purisubzi I’ve had alarm clock apps before, but on iOS I believe the app have to be open (lack of services). Would be happy if Apple did it, they have Siri, and an alarm clock, so why not?

Conversation

@pip Probably a radar. It seems a bit torn up lower down.

Conversation

@Pilchuck Rail-based transport, hydrogen ferries and feeder electric/hydrogen buses along with light transport as in manual and electric bikes seem to me to be the only way with current technology. I mean I’d love to have a big SUV for comfort and security, but not if it harms others now or in the future, (which it will). For the time being I mostly use my legs.

Conversation

@pratik No, not that bad, just thighs together, lower legs apart, lying in bed. A bit womany, maybe.

@tracydurnell I’m saving that link.

@kerim This was too hard for me to understand, but I just want to say that I take no joy in cheering for destruction from any sides. Why not give Russia an opportunity to walk away, and then restore some peace? No one can argue who started this. Give them an opportunity to peacefully retreat, then let the world community decide what’s next. 🕊☮️

Conversation

@fgtech Pretty awesome! I’ve never seen a sky just like that.

Conversation

@val It would be fun if it said “NONE SHALL PASS”!

Conversation

@gregmoore RUMBO endorse that!

Conversation

@frostedechoes I fear it’s a self-fueling problem. The less the institutions are able to care for the individuals, the less they are likely to matter. @crossingthethreshold I think it’s a world-wide problem. Some of it, I fear, is that “everyone” has their own window into the world via their screens. For some, it’s all they have.

Conversation

@Moondeer I’d love a bed like that. Keeping an eye on Plufl.

@maique Saw @mpmilestogo is heading that way. First Sex Pistols is outdated with “God save the Queen”, then Dead Kennedys are outdated with “Holiday in Cambodia”. Well, the other way around, I guess.

Conversation

@Burk Yes, I have such a friend too. @help

Conversation

@benwerd We’ve got empirical support for this statement.

Conversation

@bennorris I am happy about the result of the other one, with Casper Ruud, the first Norwegian ever to be in the final.

Conversation

@jean Is it 45MB/mo, or per recording?

Conversation

@Moondeer They’re on the other side of the great divide, probably.

Conversation

How nice would it be if one could user define how the silent/ring button on the iPhone worked? If you wanted it to also be a flight mode button for example. ✈️

@djt Great shot, and nice wheels!

Conversation

@rom Ok, I’ll try to remember until next year. I was unsure about the time zone difference between us. Also, I need to delve deeper into that universe, figuratively speaking, of course. Edit: Wait, that’s today!

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Ok. I’ve forgotten so much of those movies. Some for the good, probably.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers I forget, in Norway You Only Live Twice got the title “James Bond i Japan”. I don’t know who exactly does this, but there is, (at least used to be), some people whose job it was to make Norwegian titles where they saw necessary.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers But didn’t Sean have a fake funeral at sea in the Hong Kong harbor, only to be recovered and taken inside the slanted ship? Was that Roger?

Conversation

@odd Somehow I had it in my head that this was in James Bond in Japan, starring Sean Connery…

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers About the first one: The wreck was featured in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun, as a covert headquarters for MI6. (Wikipedia)

Conversation

@Miraz Poor animals, birds and fish!

Conversation

@jefbrr Those topics have only marginally been discussed here to my recollection. There’s no doubt that there is much of it, and from many directions. It’s important to combat, and at the same time not to amplify.

Conversation

@rishabh That was the title, yes. I still haven’t read it, although it has been in my Kindle library for years.

Conversation

@pratik A legacy to be proud of. Eco-friendliness is essential to the future. Their children will learn what she thought their parents, and generations may be impacted in a positive way. 🫱🌱🫲

@jtalon To me they look like the top of a flag pole, but onion-er.

Conversation

@brian_wolf 🤦🏻‍♂️

Conversation

@aurora What a nice photo! Love everything about it.

Conversation

@rishabh Is that from «Man’s quest for meaning» or something like that? (I think there is a book called “Amusing ourselves to death” also, by a contemporary writer).

Conversation

@richText That was my thought exactly.

Conversation

@Sylari Is that on linear TV?

Conversation

@pimoore Sometimes I think it’s worth finding out, but sometimes not.

Conversation

@vincent It sounded like one had to be ever so alert to make sure the phone is pointing directly at the sattelite, (the app helps you with that), but if you’re in a super stressful event, like having someone almost passing out at night on the top of a icy mountain, far from cell signals, can one really manage? They showed how big the antenna of a sattelite telephone is, and made it look silly compared to the iPhone, but I think I rather have an iPhone that were capable of acting as a sattelite phone too, with a detachable antenna, (if I were to go on a expedition in a far off place, that is, which is very unlikely). Btw: I’m glad you didn’t link to the review site.

@cliffordbeshers Is it water on floorboards, coming in from the roof?

@manton I’m sorry, It’s old posts and newer posts, but far from the latest posts. Also if I try again, the same posts appear. Only after closing, then reopening the app do new posts appear.

@stefp On Windows at least you have an app as a default for each file type. Why is this so hard? I have two RSS-readers on my iPhone. One of them I only use for my Twitter feed, the other I add site feeds to. Which one (if I’m lucky) do I get in the share sheet? The Twitter feed one. 😖

@paulcraig901 @ron The Vietnam war also didn’t really start with Gulf of Tonkin incident, but in the mid-50s, just as the Korean War was heading towards a standoff. However it wasn’t especially felt in the US until the mid-60s. If you were living in Korea or Vietnam in the 50s, it probably didn’t feel so safe.

@jamescousins That’s true, we are really fortunate. Boomers lived through the escalation of the atomic threat, social unrest and the part disintegration of the core family, maybe that and health factors could explain some. (My mother has GAD, same as myself).

@ndreas That ought to be allowed in most work plsces. Hoping you’ll get well rested tonight! 😌

Conversation

@jamescousins Yes, that was a very wise decision to make in it’s time, but how enormous it is, it will only take a couple of really bad years to wipe out. I love my mother, but I don’t want to spread the same negativity that she used to, (dementia is a really bad thing, but in that regard, it has made her happier).

Conversation

@jamescousins We have our own problems over here, (Norway), and although I’m not entirely positive about our administration, it’s better than the last one. I heard about “Thin Lizzy”, and how it will be a continuation in many respects. I’m hoping the people of Britain will cast their ballots differently at the next election. As for the pessimism, I somewhat grew up with that too, and we were some of the poorer families in our area, but we always had food and necessities. Sad to say, I think I’ve “inherited” some of my mother’s pessimism.

@AndyNicolaides if you have the ISBN, you might get lucky. Manton said where they came from, but I don’t recall. Two sources, I think.

Conversation

@Munish When I read what Pratik wrote, I was actually thinking about a spy book, and I was sure it was David Ogilvy, the marketing guru who wrote it, but I couldn’t find it, so it might have been someone else who wrote it. Ian Fleming? I don’t know. @pratik

Conversation

@pratik I didn’t know what it was either before looking it up just now. Can you say you study how people work?

@SamHawken That’s probably where Tarantino got the idea for the “Five-finger death-punch” in Kill Bill, which also have a “Shaw Bros.” logo in the intro titles.

Conversation

@Archimage That sounds about right. POLLINATION Lingonberry are not self-fertile and require a different variety as a pollenizer to produce fruit. Certain varieties produce more pollen and so make better pollenizers. The pollenizers should be planted no further than pollen carrying bumblebees will fly, with no line of sight obstruction, to ensure proper cross-pollination, up to 50’.

Conversation

@crossingthethreshold Thank you, David.

Conversation

@ndreas Lingonberries are good with meat. Looks like you had a great day weather wise too.

@dandycat Ugh! Maybe he felt you were infringing on his beliefs by wearing one…🙄 Hope you don’t have to experience that again. I am triple-vaxxed, and I don’t wear a mask anymore, and I’m aware that I might take chances, but I don’t go harassing people that do wear a mask, and I totally understand why they might want to. The narrative that there is this culture “war” really start messing with peoples head.

@fahrni Thank you for being open about it, it can help other people see a doctor if they experience similar things in their life. Also good to hear that you’ve gotten some medication to help with the disorder! Some people sadly still believe all people that have to see a psychiatrist and get medication is crazy… I’ve been in and out of institutions many times for my Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and tried a lot of different medications, but have finally landed on a cocktail that seem to function pretty well. I’ve never felt crazy, and none of the professionals, nor people that know me would ever call me crazy. Of the many people I’ve met in the system, only a handful would fit the description (and only at bad times).

@jean I’ve been meaning to watch that movie after hearing good things about it here on Micro.Blog. Maybe with him as president 1991-2000ish, we wouldn’t have had the mess of the 90s, and what followed.

@vincent A good reminder! I intend to change my plans because of it. I need another phone, but not necessarily a new one. And I haven’t given to a charity for several months now. I think many in my country are so used to the government fixing things, so if it’s not a national fundraising campaign or giving at church, we don’t support much, (not all are like that, of course, but many are, and sometimes I’m like that myself).

@Bruff Apart for me living alone, that’s pretty much my life too: fatigue and overwhelm. And I go back to the tried and true. I think me chatting on Micro.Blog is also part of a decision making aversion for me.

@tkoola I’m looking forward to that episode! Also: need to check out that movie.

Conversation

@Miraz @jayeless @johnphilpin We’re so far behind. We can hardly play standard English Football (Soccer) here. Well, except Haaland, maybe.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Yes, for me it was the lever(?) that gave it away (presumably).

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin That’s pretty much my conclusion too.

Conversation

@jayeless I’ve never heard about that before. Football with other rules? I’d like for football to diversify even more, and have uneven grounds with ponds with ducks in them and so on. That would make it more interesting I think. Maybe have a pub in the middle, so if one gets thirsty, one could have a pint or soda during the play. Not making fun here, I’m quite serious. Regular football is too boring for me… When it comes to Rugby and American Football, I don’t understand why it is called “Football”, because the foot is almost never touching the ball. 🙄

Conversation

@philipbrewer That’s awesome! Between Toki Pona and Esperanto, the latter is much more likely that I start learning.

Conversation

@jayeless Oh, didn’t know that! Does that mean you have a vibrant American Football community over there?

Conversation

@KyleEssary I think that settles it for me. It felt right, and everyone that has commented on it has had only good things to say about it.

Conversation

@f Ok, I got the two mixed up. I am sure the iDeveloper podcast team arranged a conference in Europe for some years too, but I forget the details now.

@adoran2 I didn’t know Portugal had a Lagos also.

Conversation

@pratik Haha, I suppose that could be a part of it, but I was really thinking a group of friends experiencing a mystery together, labyrinths, castles and mysterious mysteries. 🧙🏻‍♂️

Conversation

@benwerd Hahaha! 😂😂🤣

Now that we have AI, why not make interactive text adventures for the mobile phones? It could be like iMessage and notifications.

Conversation

@dancohen Looks like it’s sinking in and that she’s taking it hard.

Conversation

@roberto Was it supposed to be launched today?

Conversation

@maique I’d like to have a copy of everything that I send out via emails or posts to Micro.Blog or whatever, and that thought struck me when I saw your Basics palette.

Conversation

@joshuapsteele Yes.

Conversation

@philbowell A post that started a thread last night.

Conversation

@michal Looks very good! 😋

Conversation

@maique Oh no, now I got Drafts-envy… Haven’t used it as much as I probably should have.

Conversation

@BestofTimes It’s a lot to catch up on out there. I love Clare Dane’s voice, so I might get it myself.

Conversation

@renevanbelzen I’m used to numbers like that, but I’m cheating with beta-blockers, (prescriptions). The meaning of life, the universe and everything.

Conversation

@ndw Haha, that makes us two! I’m currently out of paper clips, so now I use map pins 📍

Conversation

@drewcastillo Belated congratulations! 🎉🎈

Conversation

@jean I thought you used a Shure SM58? (Was sure I heard that on the @monday you recorded on the airport).

Conversation

@joebuhlig That is such a great program!

Conversation

@Archimage I consider it a challenge, and I will succeed! 😁

Conversation

@de Quite a history! It seems to me that the lesson is owning expensive diamonds puts one in debt. It is indeed a beautiful stone.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin Are you sure she wasn’t an Android?

Conversation

@martinfeld I’ll be sure to listen to more episodes from the show. Very well made! I have listened to Core Intuition since 2010 or something like that, and it was special to hear Manton as a guest rather than the host.

Conversation

@matti That’s like most of my days. But today is Sunday after all. To bad you couldn’t find the presence for a movie or book or something. Same here. Hope you got to cuddle a little with your doggo. 😌🐶

Conversation

@artkavanagh I’m sure I have them both here somewhere. I think I read them both for about 30 years ago, but strangely I can’t remember anything from them.

@JohnPhilpin Lots of great <s> content </s> cartoons at the site!

@maique I’ve had the same problem, and I’ve seen other peoples avatars alternating between the old and new one for a while until settling on the newest one. Wonder if it isn’t server caching that does it. @manton

Conversation

@V_ I remember when I built a snowball catapult, and when stepping on it, it catapulted the snowball right in my own temple. Let’s say the engineering part was a bit quick.

Conversation

@joshuapsteele I’m not quite there yet, (but soon will be), and I’m a bit amazed that it doesn’t seem to be anything involving lasers yet.

Conversation

@jeroensangers I started on it a couple of years ago, but got sidetracked. I could certainly benefit from finishing it. 🙂

Conversation

Listened to Really Specific Stories with Martin Feld, @martinfeld and Manton Reese, @manton. Interesting to hear backstories like this.

Conversation

@Flish Haha, that is a whole other story for sure. They can be a bit messy. 🐰

Conversation

@canion Page is looking good! I think I’ll have to revise and maybe consolidate some too.

Conversation

@leonp I wonder if Micro.Blog can be used on Nokia phones… A lot of places they are still prevalent.

Conversation

@Flish They are cute! I’d love to have a rabbit again…

Conversation

@Denny Sounds great to me! I think it’s a hard sell, but at things deteriorate, it might become easier. 🤑🔫

Conversation

@topgold I once read a book (still not finished), called “Slow Boats to China” after the song, but I’m afraid those were not CO₂ neutral. If you do make a trip like that, on non-toxic boats, please consider taking notes, and writing about it, (maybe even a book). 📚

Conversation

@Denny I use NNW for consuming my Twitter feed and Micro.Blog if there’s something I’ve missed, (although it seems only the 40 last posts are retrieved). Then I’ve used both Reeder (several versions), and NNW for a while and two different versions of Unread, which I am using now. I mostly read on my phone, so that decides my preferences a lot.

Conversation

@nielsk Awful! I wonder if the Great Gorges Dam building has something to do with it… The post you had in German about nukes in Ukraine wasn’t very comforting either. It needs to stop as quickly as possible. 😔

Conversation

@pratik I am sorry you have to deal with these mood swings and irrational behavior, especially when you are just trying to help your parents. We often hear about ungrateful kids, but ungrateful parents are also a thing. Really hope he’ll turn around and face that he’s in need of your care, and should be thankful for all you’ve done. (Maybe losing the authority and autonomy is part of why this behavior manifests(?))… Before I had to tread lightly to please my father, but now he usually is very thankful for what I manage to do for him and my mother. (I still have not had to rush over there). He is still somewhat impatient and negative sometimes, but seldom irrational.

Conversation

@AndyNicolaides Yes, I try to use the stock apps over others, because on iOS there’s a good chance they’ll last a long time, whereas third party apps can just die one day out of the blue. I try to spread the risk on some areas though, and having backup options.

Conversation

@ericmwalk Oh, there’s a specific product I was thinking of: Kavli Baconost.

@pimoore Thanks! I made it with Vintage Logo. Used Clear Spaces to get that free space at the top.

@joshua I’m mostly logged out of it, and rely on the blogs I follow in Unread and people here on Micro.Blog to tell me the important stuff.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers @manton I came over it by chance, visiting the Kickstarter app*. I knew about Doctorow from before though, and found this important. *) After listening to @monday where the Micro.Blog Kickstarter were discussed.

@JoeCotellese I did something like that when iOS 15 (14?) was new, but then I gradually reverted to some icons and icon folders. Siri isn’t quite ready in my language yet, (and it doesn’t help that I have a dialect).

@jayeless Very well written, agree with much of it, and as a person with limited physical disabilities, (well, I am very overweight), but with mental disabilities, (and it's not that I'm having a hard time understanding things, but I do have Generalized Anxiety Disorder). Oh, don't get me started on the "You are experiencing that it is such and such…” That way of plainly killing any concerns one have is just awful. Rather say “I hear your concerns, but I don’t agree from my point of view”, or something. Don’t just dismiss my thoughts like I don’t even have a brain.

Conversation

@Adam245 Welcome! 👋😃

@JohnPhilpin Paste trial.

@nitinkhanna That’s cool! I’ll save that link.

@ridwan I remember the city sign in “East is East” where it said Brad<s>ford</s>istan.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Awsome view to wind down the day to. I hope you’ll continue doing the WhatsitWednesday’s. It’s fun. No pressure though!

Conversation

@Munish Usually after, but sometimes before.

Conversation

@maique Sun is bright! Great photo, as usual! 👧🏻☀️

Conversation

@wfm This, along with many other reports, are really disturbing reading. Even if one doesn’t believe that the environmental changes are man-made, what people do certainly doesn’t help.

Conversation

@sylvia That sounds great, Sylvia! I guess many long for such a device now that Apple have discontinued the iPod. That reminds me, I got to change the battery 🪫in my iPod…🔋

Conversation

@Munish Those look stunning! Wish I could teleport myself there for lunch. 🏝

Conversation

Hey, did you just see a real bright light?

Conversation

@thedimpause That’s good too, especially for all the pollinators and other beings that love those fields. 🌱🌿☘️🌳

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Thanks. It resulted in a thunderstorm later on if memory serves.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin Ok, I don’t have it. Have started my trial now. Have you opted in for full access on the keyboard, or just “paste”? I’m a little worried about giving full access…

Conversation

@thedimpause When I grew up I was embarrassed that my father decided not to have a big lawn to roam around in, but opted for a large vegetable garden and many berry bushes. Now I am ashamed that I didn’t appreciate it more, and what it gave us. 🥕

@MitchWagner I really liked the show, and it was liberating to see four women above their 40s be the main characters. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Conversation

@aaronpk Oh, I so wish Apple could dust off Aperture and do a Photoshop equivalent. Together then with Logic and Final Cut, they’d have a real contender.

Conversation

@Mikehendley I love it! Not only because rabbits are my favorite animal, but because it’s so excellently drawn. ❤️🐰

Conversation

@jgordon Very interesting! I had never heard about him before.

@matthewcassinelli Looking forward to it! I’m all in on Focus Modes already.

@vincent Oh, I remember those were all the rave in the late 90s(?)

@kvl If my math is correct, that means you could theoretically live in a taxi cab for under $3000 a year.

Conversation

@pimoore Thanks! It was fun playing.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Yes, not easy at all. Thank you for the quiz! I needed to have something to chew on now.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Aha! I thought about a sink earlier, but was convinced it was something to serve food/drink with.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Is it a porcelain tray (I’m not sure of the right English word here) of red cabbage? Kind of like sauerkraut, only with red cabbage?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers A bowl with a little bit of red bete on it?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Is it residue from tea inside of a porcelain teapot?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Apart from the squiggle looking like a fox lying down, I wonder if this is inside a porcelain or ceramic cup?

Conversation

@Mandalorian Great photo, and a beautiful sunset! We need to up our game over here.

Conversation

@maique We do too. There are still a lot of tractors made from the 50s onward in operation. The grey Massey being somewhat of an icon.

Conversation

Whoever thought double clicking on the power button of the iPhone to confirm a purchase is a good idea, should go deep into the woods, and stay there.

Conversation

@g I’d love to have pants like that!

Conversation

@maique That Massey is something out of my 80s childhood/teen hood.

Conversation

@Munish Sorry the glamour wasn’t there, but also good the deadly triangle wasn’t. Did you get to see the fort while you’ve been there?

@zorn I learned BASIC about that same grade, and Scandis Pascal a little later (on a CP/M computer with Turtle Graphics, which were fun!) then Turbo Pascal after that, (version 3.x). Did you know that the guy who made Turbo Pascal also helped Microsoft shape C#?

Conversation

@braker1nine Doesn’t the newest Apple Smart Keyboard (or what they’re called) have Touch ID? Doesn’t help if you’re going to use another keyboard of course… @rom

Conversation

@manton Thanks! Uff, what happened to you is bad enough. Hope you could prove it wasn’t you. Can you set a voluntary credit block with the credit information companies in the US? (Like Dun & Bradstreet).

Conversation

Someone (with access to my father’s account) commented with the sign for rubles (Russian currency) on a picture of my father that I shared with him, and an “X” next to a picture of the house where I live. @manton

Conversation

@Mandalorian Yet it looks fantastic! Must have been a great sight seeing it with your eyes!

Conversation

@manton As one that have been attempted and successfully hacked along with social engineering of myself and family members, I can certainly say that no device is ever going to be secure enough, but maybe the security ought to be better spent behind the scenes, and not so much in our face. Well, apart from that horrible Deny/Allow dialogue with the map. While my device was actively being listened to, my father allowed the request on his iPad on my go ahead, because he had another iPad in the shop being worked on. Pegasus scandal, and many 0-days later, I wish for a doubling down on security, while at the same time they can make it easier for us to use our devices. I’m all for the Touch-ID to be an alternative to the Face ID on the Pro models.

Conversation

@skoobz Cassettes has become a thing again I’ve heard. I’ve spent countless hours recording things from the radio onto cassettes, all of that was in the 80s. I wouldn’t mind simpler games either. The graphics could be as good as it is, but the gameplay of many games don’t fit my fried, 50-something brain.

Conversation

@vincent I bet the horses would thank you if they knew it was you who did it. We need much more of this resolute behavior facing mindlessness. 🎖

Conversation

@supremus I guess only time will tell, but I hope they are genuinely welcoming. I think it’s much worse in some parts of my country than in the “white” parts of the US. Probably because the history of non-whites are so short here still. Kids even it out, but grownups can teach kids to be mean…

Conversation

@doctorpundit Wow! This is so tempting…

Conversation

@mariovillalobos Great set of photos. I hope it was as enjoyable as the photos suggest! 🏕

Conversation

@supremus I’m sure they aren’t all bad. (I hope they aren’t).

@bradenslen Maybe it’s inside baseball that ruined it? No, being serious now: my guess it’s about security and money. They need to be behind the counter, for their own, and their money’s security. Also, they know that if you need gas - you need gas, independent from the service level.

@maique That is good! @sod kindled something there. 😃👍

@zmeus It is very good!

@hjalm Then they could pump it up. (Ok, a bit of a side-reference there).

Conversation

@Miraz I like the sound of that. Reading later.

@cliffordbeshers Unusual composition, also, I see a left eye.

@benwerd Yes, please, and make it eco-friendly at the same time.

@uncertainquark That seems like a good strategy to follow. There are way too many things that scatter our attention already.

@jemostrom We’re lagging behind, as usual. Hope they will get the infrastructure and plans to realize this soon.

Dear @Apple and @Google. You encourage people to pour all of their life into electronic devices. So, then, it is your obligation to keep those devices from being exploited by thieves, killers and destroyers.

@eddiehinkle Hi! I just listened to the @monday podcast episode from 2018, with you as a guest. I got curious about the app Indigenous, but it seems that it isn’t available in my location (Norway), so I wondered, are there any plans for expansion into other areas?

Listening to @monday with @jean and guest @mnmltek. Very interesting discussion, and topics, especially at the end.

@pip Nice picture! It’s like being inside a triangular pyramid.

@sod Thanks for posting! There were some things that I didn’t know here.

@heaversm 👋😃 hi, and welcome!

Conversation

@amit Looks very nice to be there!

@rajeev That’s a beautiful rose!

@pratik Mine was liberated from the packaging the first day I got them. Sadly, I don’t have the latest remote, but the next to latest squishy one. @hawaiiboy

@jtalon Congratulations! 🎈😃

Conversation

@restlesslens I have still to read the Snorri Sturluson’s sagas.

Conversation

@kbrice They wouldn’t need to have a sign saying “Accessible” if it really were. 😵

Conversation

@hawaiiboy Is that a remote for the first Apple TV? (I’ve had 2-4K, but not the first).

Conversation

@hjalm Do you mean on a smartphone, then you are not alone. On desktop or laptop computers, I’m much better, with my clutch(clumsy touch)/crutch(?) method of using three fingers on each hand, and always looking at the keyboard until I’m done with a sentence.

Conversation

@parag That’s even better! 😃

Conversation

@restlesslens And it’s less than 500 years ago. Not a long time in the big scheme of things. 💌 The account of the Normans is a reminder of Helge Ingstad and his discoveries for me.

@tinyroofnail Pretty awesome photo!

Conversation

@garciabuxton Is that from the NIV? No, just kidding, but I didn’t get the reference.

Conversation

@pratik I’m not sure. I think there are some on hiatus but not many are what I consider “gone”. Still on the early ep’s yet though.

Conversation

@djt Is that in England?

Conversation

@Miraz Yes, I’ve gone back to the start to try and get through all of them, (at least with accounts that still is in use).

Conversation

@rcrackley Oh, I didn’t know. Thanks for clarifying!

TIL: London–Calcutta bus service - Wikipedia The bus service from London, England to Calcutta, India (now Kolkata) is considered to be the longest bus route in the world.[1][2][3] The service, which was started in 1957, was routed to India via Belgium, Yugoslavia and North Western India.[4] This route is also known as the Hippie Route. According to the reports, it took about 50 days for the bus to reach Calcutta from London. The voyage was over 10,000 miles (16,100 km) one way and 32669 km (20300 miles) for the round trip. It was in service until 1976.

@MitchWagner Ouch!

@Gaby You should definitely grow a mustache, and get a panama/straw hat, (and a glass+cigar)!

@rcrackley That name was unknown to me. I got an instant flashback to 1984 when I just went to his (awesome) site, and saw the cover of “Binge”. Is he the one that coined the term “Gen-X”?

@Miraz I’m afraid the situation has been, and maybe are the same here, although the pickers are from other countries. 😕

@ndreas I am glad you are, and I’m a bit envious. I’m usually not eating any meats, but sometimes, when we have communal meals, I’ll join the group. For daily consumption there is very little of it. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be a vegetarian, but my meat consumption has fallen drastically over the last 10 years.

@pratik Thanks for going into the details of this. It’s a half victory compared to a complete loss, which probably would be the result of insisting on a 100% deal. With the fiercely opposing ideas it’s still a victory.

@Archimage Thank you! That is nice of you to say! ☺️

@Archimage Someone did that for me. I hope someone on my road have felt that I did that to them.

@skoobz That is very true. Better getting a silver medal than being disqualified.

@bradenslen Maybe the domain hosts sell data to Google?

@ChrisJWilson thereview.app ? Edit: that’s taken. But theapp.review is available, although a premium domain. €520 when I checked.

Conversation

@joebuhlig I would be amazed if there wasn’t. My country has a lot of weather, and there are recognizable patterns. Maybe check on Academia.

Conversation

@mcg Yes! Thanks for letting me know! That saves me a stern feedback to Apple. 😊

Conversation

I wish iOS had two Lock Screens, because what’s the point of having a Lock Screen background when you never get to see it? The screen should be only time, date and background image, swipe left and you’ll see what’s playing, notifications etc.

@KyleEssary That must be it. I won’t be offended as long as they send me what I’ve requested or if it’s an invoice, I won’t be offended anyway. 😃

Conversation

@frostedechoes I stumble upon this problem a lot, so I should have that be a part of my ikigai.

Conversation

@Miraz That’s something! I wish that was me in 37 years time!

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin So it doesn’t delete the email from the recipients inbox and wipe their recollections? 😜

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin I imagine it will be, especially as I’m easily adapting to changing surroundings. But the core beliefs about one self and the place in the continuum should be able to be resilient. But, as you said, it’s hard.

Conversation

@Miraz Yes, I thought so too. I think I ought to be more deliberate about things as my time gets shorter.

Conversation

@Miraz Not bad as conspiracy theories go! ☺️

Conversation

No Time to Die (2021) boxd.it ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ I think it was a bit too Mission Impossibley and Jason Bourney, but it had it’s moments.

Conversation

@Miraz No, but I thought I’d eat less because of the tightness of it, and get more muscles from it’s weight. I’m shot at fairly seldom. 😃

Conversation

@skoobz Oh, that’s good to hear! 😃😻 I usually are good for nothing when I’m sick. Now I’m going on five weeks with what I believe is tendinitis in the shoulder and a pinched nerve.

Conversation

@skoobz Uff! Hope it’ll turn around for you soon. One can’t get anything done when one are sick like that. 🪄✨

Conversation

Why do so many sites require that you submit if you are a Mr. or Mrs. and sometimes Ms., (and even Dr.)? Most of them aren’t selling me underwear, and if they did, they could just ask for the measurements.

Conversation

@Miraz Great read. I might want to combine @annahavron ’s suggestion with @toddgrotenhuis ’ Ikigai principles. I’m currently not very good at this. For a life-giving oath, the ends do not justify the means. For a deadly oath, it’s the opposite: anything goes, as long as it is “loyal” to the leader or the cause. Something to ponder in regards to the current US political climate.

@jemostrom @cliffordbeshers The optimal building would probably be dome shaped, and have the dome rotate, and have a little skirt down at the base that could get the snow away. Would be perfect for Tornado Alley. 🌪👧🏻🐶

@pimoore Here’s “me” when it’s hot:

@jemostrom I thought so. Mine is for Kendo, and is made from bamboo, leather and fabric string.

Conversation

@jemostrom It looks to me like when they have less than three English auto suggestions, the rest is filled with German ones. (I have Norwegian, English, German and Emoji keyboards on iOS).

Conversation

I was never a PROM king.

Conversation

@pimoore @nitinkhanna @gaby We can solve the problem by always moving furniture or redecorating and changing partners and pets!

Conversation

@kurite Does it have a built in meter?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers For sure, “flat” roofs as we refer to them as, are for the most part a good design, (that’s what we have here where I live), but it comes with some trade offs, like either a high initial cost with copper on the roof, or increased wear with roofing felt and the foliage/pollen/elements. Sometimes the snow gets so thick and heavy that specialists have to be hired to shovel it from the roof. Compared to accidentally killing somebody with falling ice, it’s still preferable.

Conversation

@maique I thought it would suffice to have a bass, but it didn’t, so I sold mine. 😂

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Snow-catchers are very common on roofs downtown and in many places in the country. Gutters can take a part of it, but the huge icicles can form on gutters too, especially after a lot of snow has fallen, and then a few freeze-thaw cycles. Badly insulated roofs adds to the problem.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers No, not especially. There have been serious injuries and even deaths from falling icicles, but that is mostly in the city, where there are big 3-5 story houses from the mid 1800s to the mid 1900s, and usually after some cold-warm cycles in the winter/spring. (February-March). Further north, and in shadowy areas it can last longer, maybe.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers I don’t know when they started putting them up on houses over here, but I imagine around 1900. I think they are mandatory for all buildings with a slanted roof now according to the building regulations, but I’m not sure. We have generally speaking a lot of precipitation over here, so it is somewhat necessary. Most gutters are made from a tin alloy of some sorts, (nor: “blikk”), so they hold up quite a while. My grandfather was a “blikkenslager”, he worked with tin gutters and drains and things like that.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Eavesdripping. Had to look up “eaves”. Eaves=takskjegg in Norwegian (roof-beard). There are no gutters on the houses in the Sierras?

Conversation

@JoeCotellese I remember seeing one that said “1968” in 1984. I was amazed that they would have bottles still in use that was made before I was born.

If you take a break, I sincerely hope you will come back. *) Lately I’ve struggled with basics like have/has and is/are. Maybe I’ll have to take some lessons again, or at least look it up.

@bradenslen I can’t see myself returning either. Have you tried some of the static site builders?

Conversation

@bradenslen I see. I think I have forgotten about how Joomla just took more effort, and wasn’t as obvious. My domain host do offer both, but as you say, may not be as reliable with Joomla.

@bradenslen Is Joomla going anywhere these days? That was the first DIY CMS that I used. @jemostrom

Conversation

@Denny It’s a good cause. I like your thinking of adapting into it, as I’m sure a complete change would not be economically viable or maybe even good mentally. I thought at first that everything came from that panel! Shows how little I know. I saw a post earlier about soap. I think that’s going to be my first contribution to the world, to change my buying habits of soap. Well, come to think of it, buying things online should come absolutely first. I used to be good at being solitary, and I still am, but only as long as I’m surrounded by people I know.

Conversation

@Moondeer Cue Twilight Zone theme!

Conversation

@Denny I’m not sure that I could do it myself, (even if I was well mentally), but somewhere more rural has always had a draw to me. Speaking of tech, it looks like you’ve got a few Watts on that panel. Are there days were you are short on electricity?

@KimberlyHirsh I sadly don’t think I’ve ever been able to watch this movie in one sitting. Maybe some of these days… 🎹

Conversation

@jemostrom Great shot! Noir forest, in a way. I remember being at a school camp in 1981, and finding a tree root that looked just like a lizard. I brought it home, but I think it didn’t survive my parent’s move.

Conversation

@miraz Hi! Are you full on winter over in ANZ right now? I was thinking about it because we have max a month left of summer here in Oslo. It’s been a meh summer weather wise, but better than a winter, I guess!

Conversation

@ningkantida Happy birthday! 🎈 That is good to hear. 😃

Conversation

When I watched WarGames in 1983, I didn’t realize that 40 years later it was going to be a war on the individual, and of thought itself.

@zioibi Yikes! Those are bad numbers for us! I guess most sports-active Norwegian girls/young women aim to do well in handball instead of football too. We’ve had a long good run there. I’m afraid I don’t have much hope for our men.

Conversation

@keithpound Congratulations with a well deserved win!

Conversation

@zioibi 8-0 over 🇳🇴??? I thought our team were good. They used to be. Maybe the women’s team still are not seen as important as the men’s team… Well, congratulations anyway. They truly deserved to win being that good. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🎉

@SimonWoods Thanks! I’ll check it out.

Conversation

@frostedechoes I didn’t know that. I didn’t follow Nirvana or Cobain much beyond listening to their Nevermind album. Nirvana was the death of my beloved Heavy Metal era, and I returned to listening mostly to pop, reggae and also electronica, hiphop and rock. Now I can’t define my taste in music anymore because it is too widespread and particular. I see there are many artists that have covered this song. It’s one of the best love songs I’ve ever heard. 🎵❤️

Conversation

@frostedechoes I can’t believe that I haven’t heard about him before. Maybe not mainstream, but universal at the same time.

@frostedechoes I just listened to it, and I agree. Now I’m having Johnston’s original on repeat. 🎵🥹

@Archimage It could be it… I think of the title “Scanners” for some reason, but I’m not sure.

Tallene i vannskorpen - Geoforskning.no cc: @jemostrom Harsson viser til en tekst fra 1491 som beskriver at lokalbefolkningen uroet seg over at havet trakk seg tilbake. I en annen berettelse lærer vi at dronning Christina i 1648 besluttet å flytte byen Luleå på grunn av at avstanden til sjøen var blitt så stor i løpet av de 300 årene byen hadde eksistert. I dag vet vi at det egentlig ikke er havet som trekker seg tilbake, men landet som hever seg. Landhevingen i Skandinavia er størst i Bottenviken.

@cgrayson I had a SUV 20 years ago, and it turned out I didn’t need one, so I sold it after a while. I could just barely afford it on a ok pay, and this could have had serious consequences to the owner, and their car.

Conversation

@wfm What a calm and inviting photo. A picnic there would have been nice.

Conversation

@Ron @paulopinto Have any of you ever been in contact with LA8PV from Norway? The call sign was used in the Norwegian comedy show “Fleksnes” in 1976, so the communications authorities reserved it, but by a glitch, it got handed to a man from Molde, Norway. He later changed his call sign.

@KimberlyHirsh I was 13, and I tried a computer for the first time, and the possibilities seemed endless. We had moved in to a new house four years prior, and I discovered that I had my own musical taste. My parents also were in much better health.

@jeannie Oh, I didn’t think about that… Back then I wasn’t old enough to have a loan. Maybe a parallel universe 1982 would be better.

@Cheri That was my thought as well.… If I’d found something in my size that actually worked, I could probably not breathe. @pratik

@joshuapsteele I have read it halfway through, and feel it is relevant, and maybe a good way to manage the thoughts, but I have been in therapy sessions so many times prior to reading it, and they used CBT, and I have spent almost 20 years finding a way to cope without this, so I am a bit reluctant to switch the formula.

@jamesvandyne Interesting thought, and I would welcome it for commercial businesses, but fear not many would rise to the call.

@Cheri I always look forward to reading your posts here on Micro.Blog, and I think you post personal, but not necessarily private things. Your posts is just like most of the web ought to be in my mind. Cheerful and unpretentious. And I somehow always end up knowing a thing or two about miscellany. I hope you’ll stay here, but I also see your conundrum. Can it be Cheri Baker, the author, vs. Cheri Baker the individual that is not finding a common cause? You could always have two blogs again! 😃 Hope I’ll be able to read your non-worky things still.

@Gaby I’ve been there, and have had several hospitalizations, but mostly for anxiety. Only had a real depression once, and remember that as being worse, because with anxiety you can get anxious and do stuff, but with depression I didn’t feel like doing anything. Keep close to those who matter, take the meds, and up them - or ask if you can try something different if the ones you’re taking doesn’t work. Have the therapy, and be open with them. If you have traumas, tell them. Try not to self-medicate. You’re worth having the best life you can have.

Conversation

@purisubzi That doesn’t sound good! Hope you’ll mend quickly. Although the watch isn’t exactly cheap, you can always get a new one.

Conversation

@DiplomaticDiva Oh, I didn’t know! (Never actually been there). I learned recently that the story of Paddington has some racist undertones, which makes me sad. Now I know of three books and a book series from my childhood that is/were tainted with this. I guess they reflected the author’s living in a racist, or at least diversity intolerant society.

Conversation

@aaronpk One should always be able to crank it to the level needed, with descriptive information about the implications and usefulness of the current level. One should also regardless of the current setting be able to manually set individual settings, with visual feedback on the information panel. One thing that annoys me very much, is that you can’t set regular OSes to always download and install system updates automatically as they are known to the system.

Conversation

@jakelacaze It can be used for practically anything! 😂

Conversation

@josephaleo Yes, it’s nice and small. We have a 60mm max blade law within the city limits*, so it perfect for that. I’ll be mostly using it for opening packages, but nice to have if you’re in need. Excluding in automobiles, in luggage, or it you’re law enforcement, if I remember correctly.

Conversation

@josephaleo I haven’t had time to really test it out thoroughly, and I was a bit bummed about it not fitting in my neckloop keychain, (and I don’t think mine is titanium, it’s on the heavy side). I’ll try to come up with a solution, maybe alu D-Ring or something. I like how you can flick it almost completely open though! 😃

Conversation

@mmn I see. I hadn’t read the book that I had since the 70s.

Conversation

@mmn I thought Paddington was from London too, just like Priti. Although she’s very Priti, she doesn’t have an arch-English name either, so that doesn’t become her. I'm in pain and I'm angry. This was beneath me, and I should never have written it. The assumption that I made, was that Priti Patel wanted to expel Rwandan refugees from Britain. Next, it made me think of the Norwegian politician (and immigrant) that was a member of parliament and a immigration policy spokesperson for the right wing Progress Party. In that position, he always used to lash out against refugees, and called them thieves and liars. Then a few years pass, and he get caught making up fictive travel expenses numerous times. What a disservice to all immigrants and refugees! Now everyone that have believed that they are all thieves and liars have gotten "proof".

@hjalm Hehe, I had the doormat with “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1” on it. Also from ThinkGeek.

Conversation

@Archimage Yes, the example I thought of was when i was job training in Social Services, (social security case worker dept.) and most users there knew maybe one or two screens, and didn’t want to mess with something they didn’t know the outcome of. These are high data-density screens, and when there were one new screen implemented, everyone was sent on a two-day course to learn the new screen, myself included. Because I, unlike the 50-70yo women working there, wasn’t afraid of checking out the system, and based on prior knowledge and educated guesses, knew how it was built up, I understood the new screen within minutes the first day.

Conversation

@jeannie Thanks! I got it many years ago. It’s a bit chauvinistic, but it’s a comfy heavy cotton t-shirt.

Conversation

@Archimage Oh, yes that might also been the answer. It depends if it is a single page app or for instance a multi-layered case worker app connected to many off-site databases. I could argue these could be implemented to be easier to understand as well, but they are often legacy systems.

@vincent Yes! Love it! Hope it will trickle down to the official apps eventually.

Conversation

@aaronpk Word on the street is “STOP”.

Conversation

@ndreas Good morning! (It’s really afternoon here now, but, anyway). Here’s mine:

Conversation

@rcrackley Ok, good to hear!

Conversation

@rcrackley Not good. Could it be that she thought of it as a shared thing, and also thought it wasn’t necessary to ask you first? Did she have something to gain by doing this, or was it just a random email to a friend or relative? I think talking this through with her is a best first move, (although I don’t know your situation in detail). It’s easy to be offended, but usually good to let the benefit of the doubt steer the further conversation.

Conversation

@fahrni @johnbrayton I think Smoosh sounds like a wet kiss!💋

Conversation

@artkavanagh Haha, me neither!

Conversation

@maique That’s so cool of them! 🐶<woff

Conversation

@bm Kevin2600 must be a oldtimer. edit: old school I mean. Edit2: probably old school AND new school.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Oh, so you’ve had it in the fridge or freezer, and the damp from the warm food evaporated and cooled and now shows up on the lid?

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis That’s not a good start! Hurry up and do vacationy things to block out work-thoughts.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Oh, is it the lid on a frying pan or a casserole, (and you’re frying/cooking something)?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers It’s a food container being washed (or just have been). And it’s dishwasher safe.

Conversation

@Miraz As one should be, but more often than not it’s probably just training/ an exercise. 🚁🚁🚁

Conversation

@MitchWagner I thought they were buddies…

Conversation

@Miraz Wow, looks like the sea has been skimmed for foam!

Conversation

@Cheri Oh, this is me too. There are people here where I live that the first thing they say is «Everything is 💩. There’s only idiots here…». And I get in a bad mood myself, find an excuse to escape the living room, and go on Micro.Blog and complain about something, because - now I feel like everything is fæces too. See! I did it again! I will try to be more mindful about this. Thanks for the reminder!

Conversation

@nsmsn Wow, I saw that cover art as a virus at first. Guess I’m a bit primed by the last 2 ½ years of virus art.

Conversation

@jaheppler No, I would think not! 😂

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin “Um”.

Conversation

@dwalbert Looks like text, but I can’t quite read it.

Conversation

@jeannie I’m sure they are contacting health services on this one. It didn’t sound like she broke in though, so maybe they just didn’t lock their door. It’s in a less densely populated area.

Conversation

@jeannie Yes! Apparently she loved running, but not from the police.

Conversation

Police Twitter, Bergen, Norway: Reported from a homeowner who came home and saw a unknown woman running on their treadmill (!), Saw this from the outside. Also played loud music. Woman on the mill made no sign of escaping either. The patrol has arrested a woman (36). Says she just walked by and wanted to run a little .. @helgeg #Nesttun

@pimoore @pimoore @skoobz @maique @manton The thing about Else’s blog that I like most is two things! That it can read out loud the article. That it offer to translate from the article’s language into my language. A combination of the clean blog of Mu-An’s, the narration and translation on Else’s and menu options on van Dyne’s blogs would be a perfect addition to Micro.Blog.

Conversation

@pimoore Yes, like that one too.

Conversation

@skoobz Very nice indeed!

Conversation

@activatelearn Yes, it can be a bit overwhelming at first. One place to start following people is the Discover-tab, and then following who they follow or are conversing with. The technical bits can mostly be figured out on the Help pages, or by asking @help for help.

Conversation

@matti What a nice picture of him! Love the evening sun striking the fur.

Conversation

@activatelearn Welcome! 👋😃

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers It might be his son, Reginald the sailor. @maique

Conversation

@manton Oh, no! Now you’re inviting more Pegasus-type hacks.

Conversation

@Archimage I liked “Revenge of the nerds”. In some ways the nerds won, in other, not that much, I suppose.

Conversation

@kaa Looks very nice! The article took a while to load, but the site itself was fast. (May be a problem on my side).

Conversation

@gregmoore Great photo! It looks very nice to be there.

Conversation

I really need to catch up on @monday

Conversation

@thomasbibby That’s great news! They (The Green Party) have been working on this here in Oslo too, but I think they got run out over some technicalities and mismanagement. Hope they come back stronger and better.

Conversation

@Archimage Maybe, but I wish I’ll be better, later. 🥺🙏

Conversation

@kimberlyhirsh It’s fast approaching peak Kimbertide, so I’ll say congratulations again! Hope you have had some you time today, and maybe a little treat. 🎈✨

Conversation

@patrickrhone Uhh! I really think this thing ought to give people some slack. Hope you’ll stay clear, and them others ride it off quickly.

@KimberlyHirsh The UnKonMarie-method. I’m familiar with it.

@thedimpause Half woman, half bird? Magnus is to my knowledge only a mans name, at least historically. 🤔

@purisubzi Doesn’t look like yr.no has got it right either.

Conversation

@rcrackley Some days I feel like I’ve had my share, but compared with all that’s going on in the world, I’ve really had it fairly easy.

Conversation

I’ve seen things… you people wouldn’t believe. People throwing trash just next to a trash can… I’ve watched plush toys with glitter discarded next to the recycling station. Yet, all those moments… will be gone, like tears, in the acid rain.

Conversation

@jemostrom The laying down the guns part I mean.

Conversation

@Archimage That’s a great title!

Conversation

@jemostrom Let that be an example for the peoples of the world.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis 🐉😅

Conversation

@JMaxB Haha! Well, he was right.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers It’s written by Kristofferson, but I think Cash has the best version.

@toddgrotenhuis Ok. I can like lizards that aren’t too big that they can eat me.

@cygnoir It seems like they are changing things around as they see fit. To their defense, they do have a couple of terminals that you can look things up on. But if you’ve got many things on your list…🤷‍♂️

Conversation

@Miraz Ok, I see. The “nice” right.

Conversation

The night was hot, wait no, the night, the night was humid. The night was humid, no wait, hot, hot. The night was hot… – Quotegeek Great start on this movie!

Conversation

@maique What a bad day to have a burning car, in the scorching sun! As if the accident wasn’t bad enough.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Haha, I didn’t see until now that the box says “Reach”! 😸

Conversation

@maique Oh, I can barely tolerate that. Heatwave!(YouTube)

Conversation

Yes, maybe, I’m not sure.

Conversation

@maique Ugh! That’s rough! 🥵 We’re half that.

Conversation

@maique Aww! 😊 Thank you! Yes, that is a cozy bunny! I’m resting my shoulder with Malin by my side.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Check this one. @fgtech

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Maybe not completely astonishing, but Band on the run by Wings is a little “Huh!”.

Conversation

@pimoore Thank you, Peter! Shoulder still acting up, but it’s still connected to my body, and my mood is lighter, so I’ll take what I can get. 😌

Conversation

@maique Good afternoon! I just emerged from the bottom of dark, heavy sleep, and yes, thanks, I’m feeling a little better! Without feeling too much after, I think the shoulder, and accompanying mood is a little less painful. ☺️

Conversation

@pcora Good morning to you too! Painkillers have set in, so it is looking better by the minute, thank you! 😌

Conversation

@Miraz Yes. National Party has a bad ring to it. Let’s hope it takes a while for them to come in position.

Conversation

@hawaiiboy I think “I’d rather go blind” is on that album. That’s one catchy tune.

Conversation

@Miraz Jacinda Ardern seem to me to be doing a good job as PM, but I imagine it’s a tough job. The very wealthy is probably not exactly great fans of hers, and change can take a long time to achieve, so many can become impatient. I hope there will be a turnaround for the impoverished, and that the middle class will express solidarity to make it happen.

Conversation

@lmika Thank you Leon! I trust it will be better in a while.

Conversation

@lmika Thank you! It’s morning here now, and I wish I could say it’s going well, but this is one of those days where it isn’t. At least not yet, it could be nice day later on, I guess!

Conversation

@Miraz I regretted my first line right after I sent the post. Heartless of me. I apologize. Can the ever increasing cost of living in ANZ push people to these extremes, or is it many factors? Have the political climate changed?

Conversation

@Miraz And dinosaurs with no arms! No seriously, it’s mostly the same situation here in Oslo. Not every day though. It’s not so much that I want to live here, as I need to. 😔

Conversation

Good morning! Good afternoon! Good evening! Good night! Whenever you are, wherever you are. 😃

Conversation

@hawaiiboy It’s seen hard times and good times, and probably a whole lot in between. 🪙

@odd It’s hard to believe it’s almost 10 years since TouchID was introduced.

Conversation

@rom That’s a suggestion I support, if the price isn’t dramatically increased.

Conversation

@MitchWagner Why only two? Can’t everyone on Twitter sign a petition Tweet to have it close down? @pratik

Conversation

@Archimage @rom Hm, maybe not then. But if it were secure enough, it would be very convenient as an alternative to FaceID. I often have to pop up my head to open the phone when lying on my bed, and having the phone there too.

Conversation

@splinter Oh, there it is!

Conversation

@jean VoiceID! Are you listening, Apple?

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Beautifully framed too!

@toddgrotenhuis The beginning of “Fast as a shark” by Accept is one. I’ll try to think of more.

Conversation

@maique It really is steep! Don’t look like tinyMovieStar mind though!

Conversation

@kaa My eyes says “yes”, but my wallet says “are you crazy?”.

Conversation

@pimoore Ok, then I won’t start with it. No need for two ports of the same theme! I see many interesting ones, so next time I’ll announce it, if and only if I’m in such a state that I’m actually capable of doing it.

Conversation

@rcrackley I recently got myself a second hand armchair with a footstool, and it’s rather comfortable. I think it’s the general clutter, that I have little energy to sort out that is my main problem, besides my side-effects from anxiety.

Conversation

@hamtron5000 Seems like you’ve taken action to fight it. That is a good sign! Hope you’ll actively seek out more things that brings you, if not joy, then at least a little contentment. I’m a big guy myself, and have been diagnosed with depression many years ago, so I can relate a little. With good help, and massive effort, I pulled myself out of it. Don’t be afraid to ask professionals for help, but make sure they are a good fit. Actively seek out reasons to feel better, and stop doom-scrolling, if you do that.

Conversation

@maique In worst case you could say “Eu sou Adão e estou de volta!”.

Conversation

@maique Yes, I loved the Multilingual support. (with language selector) part.

@amit True! I actually saw a PaperMod theme over on the Hugo site that I thought of experimenting with.

Conversation

@pip Oh, that one makes me think of the high-rise that I used to live in, and also the Grenfell Towers fire.

Conversation

@thedimpause 🤩

Conversation

@Munish Oh, those are Fela songs.

Conversation

@Munish I’m a Fela fan, and Zombie was the first track I heard. Now I like Lady and Fefe Na Efe and Gentleman best, but there’s many good ones.

Conversation

@rcrackley 0 mins read for week 26. 🥱🥴

@jemostrom Löplabbet?

Conversation

@maique Shaving The beard too? I hope not.

Conversation

@Miraz I will! Thank you so much, Miraz! 😃👍✨

Conversation

@Moondeer Nice laptop support!

Conversation

@Miraz I have always tied mine the “factory setting”-way, but since I have a high area mid-foot, none has ever been comfortable. When will I learn? I remember seeing “Che - The Argentinian”, and when I saw they hit down the walls with a sledgehammer, I thought “Hah, a wall is just a suggested room-divider!”. I should have this mindset about all things. Everything is in “factory setting”, until you change it.

Conversation

@Miraz Mind. Blown. 🤯

Conversation

@manton Maybe it could be used for voluntary stated approximate location on About pages too?

Conversation

@maique Yes, @amit! I like the Paper theme too. I have Tufte on my main (Micro)blog, @odd, but changed from Hitchens to Paper on my (more) serious blog @auran. @pimoore

Conversation

@hutaffe Yes, however good @gluon is, I sadly can’t use it as my default Micro.Blog client, because it won’t let me select text from a post directly, and then choose “Look up”, “Copy” or “Translate” from a context menu. Those are essential to me. Else I would probably switch right away. @pratik @rom @miraz @manton

@ndreas It was just a wordplay on “muscle-car”. A mussel is a “mussla” in Swedish, according to Google.

Conversation

I want a mussel-car.

@richText Oh, no! Is there no way to salvage the drive? I bet there are companies that does this, but I don’t know at what cost.

Conversation

@JMaxB Yes, it’s unfortunate. I’m so happy that I live in Norway, where this philosophy still haven’t taken root. USA is such a great federation, with so many good founding principles, but in the end, it’s the welfare of all it’s inhabitants that matter, and it seems that there are a number of people willing to waste it all, for their personal well-being.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis And doesn’t strengthened election security cost money? If not from taxes, then how?

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin Still might be interested. I have Affinity Designer already, but I don’t find it so intuitive to my limited knowledge of using such tools.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin I wonder how he’s doing. I saw a comment to him, before he left, made by some lady, and I’m using it very loosely here, that was scoffing at him for using Arabic on his site. I’m sure there was more to it, but I wasn’t so active back then.

Conversation

@Miraz Oh, I am glad I don’t live next to an active volcano! 😳

Conversation

@superdavey Wow! That would be great as a wallpaper on the Mac.

@cygnoir It’s the same with our local HI store, Biltema.

If you want to put a spell on someone, at least use a spellcheck.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin In the app Terminology, it is defined like this: 1. someone who does not believe in the existence of a god (Which is what I’ve always thought it was.) Oxford Dictionary define it like this: atheist /ˈeɪθɪɪst / ▸ noun a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods: he is a committed atheist.

Conversation

@Miraz No, I didn’t, but have bookmarked it now for later reading. That thing about pain is very real to me right now. Bad shoulder.

Conversation

@Archimage New hardbacks, pushed from a publisher usually sell for $29.80-$49.90 over here.

Conversation

@Archimage I read it as metarage at first.

Conversation

@Miraz I think a lot of my confusion stems from not accepting and internalizing those.

Conversation

@pratik 💯

Conversation

@JMaxB I’ve forgotten about that, but those who make the movies are only people too, I guess. They think no-one is going to remember, or at least mentally ask these questions. There is so much that is to wonder: How can a spaceship designed to go at incredible speeds sometimes just hover slowly over a landscape, with no visible propulsion, and then we have WARP-drive, and worm-hole travellers… It’s all a mess.

Conversation

@johnbrayton Congratulations! I’m going back to Unread.

@pratik The original Star Wars was literally based on intermingling between different species, so why can’t they stomach different colors of skin / sexes? They’re probably not Trekkies either then.

@rcrackley Reading time for week № 25: 0 minutes. Books, that is. Have been reading many micro posts and some blog posts, also some RSS and newsletters and articles on web sites.

Conversation

@Archimage Good reminder.

Conversation

@otaviocc I keep almost all, because even if many photos are bad, they have captured a moment and place in time that will never return. It’s just as much for documentation as good photos for me. Sometimes a photo of someone have something in the background that I might want to see later. A book I read, a vase we had, many possible reasons. 📷

Conversation

I often think about the “Time Enough at Last” episode from The Twilight Zone. 📚

Conversation

@benwerd Sadly, only half of the population believe that.

Conversation

@manton I remember seeing the Inyo County Court House in Independence, CA, and thought it was a bit odd with the Roman “V”s as “U”s. Apparently, Charlie Manson was held there before being trialed for murder. @cliffordbeshers

Conversation

@applejosh Yeah, we’ve had this punks setting them off ever other day since- not last Christmas, but the one before that, so I know what you mean. Not in one go, but a cracker every other minute for half an hour. Friends dog not amused.

Conversation

@lukebouch I read reviews from European buyers for the GT-5R, and it doesn’t seem to have the European frequencies. I see they’re selling the one you got over here though. I don’t know exactly my best use cases yet, so I must investigate some more.

Conversation

@Miraz Me neither, I just saw it by chance on Tele-Text.

Conversation

@Cheri Nice and summery! ☀️ Hope you’re feeling even better, (oops, I almost wrote smellier), today!

Conversation

@eli That’s great news! Good to hear you’re getting better and did not have to do plan B. I guess a thing like this alters ones focus in life. I should go think about that I have been complaining about a sore shoulder for a week!

Conversation

@lukebouch $35 isn’t bad! May have to look into that.

Conversation

@lukebouch As I write this I suddenly realize I was talking about a CB radio. A BDR Ranger (from the early 80s). 🤦🏻‍♂️

Conversation

@lukebouch That’s great! I am so angry at myself for giving mine to the recycling station a couple of years ago. I couldn’t find the antenna. Then a month later I found it!

Conversation

@pdxmph Congratulations!🎊🎉

Conversation

@applejosh Wedding perhaps? Anyway, not a fan. (Of fireworks).

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Wow! That was a lot of names. I don’t think I have ever seen a freshwater lobster. I do have the book “Where the Crawdads sing” though, yet still unread. 🦞

Conversation

@crossingthethreshold I too reacted more than I thought I would when they released their new material. I got the feeling the world would return to a more innocent time, and that things were going to be fine.

Conversation

@patrickrhone Have a nice meal, and a lovely evening! 💕

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Where are all the crawmums?

Conversation

@meandering Yes, it’s truly awful. The last 10+ years we’ve seen more extremism and division than ever since WW2.

Conversation

@crossingthethreshold Beautiful. You should probably be able to see this planet alignment.

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin +1 @manton

Conversation

@rom It showed up but was out of stock at the site.

Conversation

@crossingthethreshold Yes, it’s a black day for the country. I feel bad for all of the LGBT community that was hit so hard by this. It was clearly a targeted attack.

Conversation

@Miraz It’s wonderful with all that bird life! PS: Sorry your women’s football (US: soccer) team that had to go all the way to the other side of the earth to lose 2-0 to Norway!

Conversation

@bradenslen Thanks, Brad. Yes, the shooter was in under the microscope of our police security services, so they will have to investigate themselves too.

Conversation

@Munish Yes. It’s (at least) the third mass shooting we’ve had since 2010. I know that’s nothing compared with the US, but still, every life counts.

@Miraz Yes, it’s awful. Apparently the shooter had been a Person Of Interest for a while, and was at an interrogation with the PST, (The Police Security Services), earlier this year. The Pride arrangement today was canceled.

@JohnPhilpin It’s just taken screenshots (with buttons on phone) that has to be saved to Photos first, or it gets just a null reference and a path to a file on the iPhone if not. The same if trying to share from Files.

Conversation

@tomc I see they have several positions as illustrators, visual designers, and UX designers, but maybe they really want doodling? Hard to tell. There are some newspapers that feature doodle cartoons, and Aftenposten has @tegnehanne.

Conversation

@tomc Oh, I didn’t know. Will try to get a good view of it.

Conversation

@tomc I’m not sure if I can get a good look at it here in the city because of all the light pollution.

Conversation

@tomc Yes, it looks like they’ve spent some resources on it. I think there are a lot of vacant positions still, so skilled people are sought after. Update: I found 25.000+ vacant positions at finn.no

@jemostrom Is it stairs, or an outdoor amphitheater?

Conversation

@Cheri Aha. Yeah, porting might be to hard for me too, (haven’t tried it yet). Usually I have the mindset of “how hard could it be” when it comes to computers, but sometimes the answer is “Hard.”, or “Very hard.”

@Cheri Are you running your own Hugo site? I thought maybe I’d have a go at porting it to Micro.Blog, but I guess I don’t have to then. I wish there were more mandatory screen shots in the theme gallery.

@hjalm Is there a separate sensor for measuring the light in the room, or does it use the iSight camera for this, do you know? My first thought is that it could be just a little dust, but I don’t know.

@jayeless Rabbits eat it too. It’s rich in fiber, at least. 🐰

@hawaiiboy Yes, that too. They are probably thinking more about those whose task it is to cut the grass than those who wants to go A→B fastest possible way, which is understandable.

Conversation

@lostfocus I’m going to give it a listen. I may pick something up on Hemispheric Views, but since it’s Am-Aus, they usually tone the slang down.

@hawaiiboy That was really smart thinking! I see the opposite everywhere here. The landscapers make the “scenic route”, while people in a hurry make the preferred route.

Conversation

@pratik We don’t have water meters here yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they announced it soon, because we’ve had a dry spring, and only recently got some substantial rain. They’ve even had to send out text messages to the entire county to ask people to be frugal about their water use. After they installed new “smart” power meters a couple of years ago, the electrical bill has increased 3-4x, so I expect the water & waste will increase rent too if they do.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Is it a new show, or the one with Peter Falk?

@jean Important to get hydrated! That mug/flask looks great. I probably shouldn’t, but I reuse water bottles and refill them with water from the faucet. Then I put them in the fridge.

@Archimage I might agree. I’d also add WinDiff as an example of something well made.

Conversation

@amit Post midnight is in the night, but PM is associated with the period from 12:00-24:00, so up until midnight?

Conversation

@Archimage I liked the mess that was. 💕

Conversation

@dejus It’s a dishwashing brush.

Conversation

@artkavanagh Right! I never use AM/PM in daily life, as we use a 24h clock here, and in daily talk most people know if it’s in the daytime or night, and if not, you use “9 this evening”, or “3 tonight”, and so on. ⏰ @parag

@Miraz There is the BioLite stove, but I guess you have to be outside for that. (There should have been a detachable generator-unit for fireplaces and wood stoves). Maybe invest in a powerbrick?

@zorn It’s the same in football (soccer), although airlines and electronics giants also appear.

@jean Although I am reluctant about getting a diesel generator, those can be real lifesavers in such situations. @miraz

@ronguest @cheri I followed you both!

Conversation

@pimoore Mmp, yep! 😅

Conversation

@pimoore Thanks! Now I’ve been doing everything but reading!

Conversation

@jean I got only the first part of the latin, until I read the post. Now I know I have myodesopsia! I wonder if those flashes are brought on by exertion of the eyes… The flies, or worms/bacteria as I see them as, were annoying at first for me, but then I got used to them. I got the first ones when I was only 21. Bad dental health and student diet may have quickened it for me. However small the problem is, I wish I could have the eyesight of my youth back. 👀

Conversation

@shep I felt quite emotional at that point I remember… I have the same thoughts.

Conversation

@manton Amen! Use the money you’ve set aside for a gun, and take a self defense class, (and maybe a little meditation) instead. If everyone did that, all the kids would be alive, and everyone would feel better. If all thugs and police kept their guns, but everyone else recycled theirs, many more people would be alive too. ❌

Conversation

@rcrackley Thanks! I’ve made a American weekdays one too, and now I could have been reading for an hour instead…

Conversation

Conversation

Conversation

@rcrackley I’ll have a look at those tomorrow. Yeah, I’ve had some under “Reading” for over a year now! Have a good evening, and night when it comes! 🌝

Conversation

@pratik He look shocked, (imagining a couple of eyes).

Conversation

@rcrackley It’s half past 9pm here now, and I don’t think I’ll read much tonight, but I’m going to really try tomorrow, borrowing your graph, and notifying you afterwards. Our weeks start on Mondays too, so that will be a difference in mine. What are you most excited to continue reading, or to start on?

Conversation

@rcrackley I like it! You round off the reading time to the nearest 30m? Simple logging like this could maybe be a future feature of Bookshelves? @manton

Conversation

@KimberlyHirsh I think my zulu-time schedule isn’t the best fit for this, but a person to person accountability note I can do.

Conversation

@SimonWoods Wouldn’t that be hard for people with completely different time zones? How about writing a message to another person about your progress for the day, and they do the same? @rcrackley

Conversation

@Archimage 😅

Conversation

@rcrackley That sounds good to me. Do you have an idea how we could do it?

Conversation

@Archimage I suspect that defeats the purpose of checking my phone too often. Well, it might not, but you know how it is…

Conversation

@rcrackley I will make a wholeheartedly attempt to read for longer, and resist the temptation of checking my phone and my feelings too frequently.

Conversation

@zorn Hahaha! I’ve made peace with vegetables and now they’re a big part of my diet.

Conversation

@manton This is for me. @toddgrotenhuis @pilchuck

Conversation

@ElleNewman That’s beautiful! 🌈

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Yes, I have started on several, but then my thoughts begins to wander, and my anxiety is playing tricks on me. Micro.Blog is a bite-sized thing I can handle. Maybe I ought to turn off my phone and try harder to read longer…

@Pilchuck 😂

@val Looks like a Lada or Fiat, maybe? I was better at this before.

@pratik I wonder if “the loo” comes from replacing WC, (No, not Winston Churchill), with “loo” from Waterloo? (Thinking out loud).

@lmika “NY Chase” I think it was! (It was referenced in the Wikipedia article). Oh, maybe tonight is going to be a game night. ♟

Conversation

@lmika Yes! That’s exactly what it was, but the one that I played was set in NYC.

Conversation

@manton Looks chill! I looked up the game, but it wasn’t the one I was thinking of at first. I once played one with the map of NYC, but the mission was for one player to keep moving using subways, cabs and ferries (if I remember correctly), and for the other players to try to chase that player. I can’t remember m the name of the game, but it was kind of exciting.

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis Sounds like you’ve been busy today! Norwegian Wood, (not the Murakami one). I haven’t read it, but it became an instant hit over here.

@annahavron I liked the framing of this. I’m inspired to get the book you mentioned (How to Keep House While Drowning). Thanks for writing this!

@pratik Tumi might got one.

Conversation

@lmika That’s awful. I hate writing long, identical stuff twice (or more).

Conversation

@sherif Sorry for the late reply! Some apps don’t save state when they should. If I’m in an email message that I’d just read, and go to all messages, then quit mail, the next time I open mail, it’s in that last read email, and not in all messages. I should probably scratch it and just set it up as a new phone.

Conversation

@pratik Yes, like constitution day, May 17. for us I guess, (or worse!). I’ve lived in Oslo for 32 years now, and never once have I been in the city center on that day. Just too stuffed.

Conversation

@pratik Hahaha! 😂

@pratik I’ve been a bit absent minded lately, so I didn’t see all the updates, but did you see the Queen on the jubilee while you were there?

@otaviocc I have nothing against Jodie Foster, but I don’t understand why both the one that attempted the assassination of president Reagan, and the assassin of John Lennon was so infatuated with her. Maybe they just watched Taxi Driver too many times(?)

Conversation

@pratik Great capture! Maybe she got inspired to play a WW2 plane game on her phone(?)

@Archimage Thank you. Very interesting! Now the question is: do I need a MBA right now, or should I wait until September and weigh my options then…

@manton Just now, (while I was composing a lengthy reply in Micro.Blog on iOS), I had to look up something in Safari, and when I was going to flip Safari off the screen, I did as I have done several times before, I accidentally flipped Micro.Blog off the screen. I vaguely remembered that there was some kind of auto save, but that is maybe just for posts? I wish there was for replies as well.

@mcg Hmm, @archimage also mentioned the MBA. I should probably wait a while to see the reviews.

@Archimage Thanks, I was worried about long compile times for a non-fan machine. You compile in Xcode, do you often have to wait long for the project to compile?

@jwhevans I have suggested this for Apple a while back. (I send things via Apple Feedback all the time). That was probably not the decisive factor, but I like to think so. 😅

@ptrck I’ve read about this tragedy before, but had to update my mind about it on Wikipedia. TIL: There’s two other “-pass incidents”.

@cheri I read your newsletter, and although I’ve never read Nancy Drew books (those were for gurrrls!) I’ve read almost all the Hardy Boys books, (or Hardly Boys, as they were called in Southpark). The story was the same: Ghost writers. When I was a tween I thought Franklin W. Dixon was the best author in the world, little did I know. In adult age, I’ve read a book about the Stratemayer Syndicate and the Hardy Boys that were interesting. In fact, about 15 years ago I started collecting the Hardy Boys books again, and read several, and I had a good time doing it, but some of the charm was lost.

@Cheri I’ll recommend The Guardian and sometimes vox.com, The Bulwark and The Atlantic, not all is bad there, but mainly The Guardian.

@pip Beautifully captured!

Conversation

@Miraz Ok. The name is a typically Swedish one, but then there are many Swedes living in Norway (and vice versa). A couple of years ago, I started to watch Dalgiesh from the P.D. James books, remembering I liked it in the 80s, but it was so slooow!

Conversation

@mjdescy I think it’s the same here, but to a much lesser degree. We get max 3 weeks of very hot, (more than 30°C), a year. The reason I said it, is because spring is allergy season for me. Summers can be rainy, but often not, and until mid-late July, it’s great, then there’s usually a heatwave. By mid-August we are back to nice temperatures. ☀️

@Pilchuck @cheri That may be part of the explanation at least. The weather has perhaps something to do with it(?)

We do have passive-aggressive over here too, so, IDK.

@AndrewForrest Welcome back! A while back I proposed a feature for @manton to unfollow accounts that hadn’t posted anything for e.g. 2 years, but that may have been a bad idea.

@Mandalorian Yes. I was really picking up my phone to open a package box, but thought as long as I have it in my hand I can take a picture. The surrounding area is a bit boring, so I figured the sky and a tree is better. I’ll remember this next time, thank you for the tip! 😃

Conversation

@jayeless That said, I also think it’s a total deflection strategy for liberals to blame “the market” for buying cheap mass-produced clothes instead of ever blaming penny-pinching capitalist scumbags for treating their workers with cruelty, or designing for rapid obsolescence in order to sell more product (with the later disposal of those products being very much Not Their Problem under our current econonomic system). Why blame ordinary people, mostly overworked and struggling with the cost of living, just wanting to buy something affordable to wear, instead of the people who actually caused this problem with their decisions about how to structure their businesses (and the economy in general)? Yep. (Timely article btw).

@Cheri I remember the American friendliness with part glee, and part “suspicion’s high command”. (Compared to Norwegians, even Swedes are on the spectrum towards Americans.) Not knowing PSW manners, I was somewhat afraid my wallet would disappear when some random people just asked to sit with me and my two friends outside a bar in SD. (It was the bar from “The sleazy bar scene in Top Gun” a plaque said inside). We had some friendly interaction with the three, but I couldn’t help thinking “what do they want?”. That’s my Norwegian suspicion saying they can’t just be friendly without reason. We just don’t talk to strangers, unless we’ve had a few, that is.

@splinter It’s got a made-for-movies backstory too I see. Incredible! I hope they get it back to a tip-top shape.

Conversation

@skoobz Haha, hadn’t thought about that one! (I usually have the rabbit, but changed temporarily for the Micro.Blog challenge today).

Conversation

@rosscatrow Here they’re called “prestekrage” (priest’s collar). They are lovely indeed!

Conversation

@toddgrotenhuis I have to look for this book, because I’m sure I got it…somewhere.

Conversation

@splinter Thats a good looking house too! 😃

Conversation

@Mandalorian These are great! Beautiful terrain. Have Ludwig 2. been there?

Conversation

Free seeds at the library.

Conversation

@pcora Do they have a free tier? I’m mostly on Flickr because they have such an enormous library of mostly good photos, and have posted excellent photos in their Explore section. I don’t want to see my own photos in the widget btw, only top photos by others.

Conversation

Hey, Flickr! Why did you steal my widget?

I have had a nice big Flickr widget on the screen to the left of the main iPhone screen for a while, and it has made me engaged with Flickr a bit again. I have even uploaded a couple of photos because of it, but despite Flickr’s repeatedly attempts to make me sign up for the Pro account, (I’m not a Pro photographer, and I don’t see any reason (yet) why I want to), I have been holding off to see some big improvements to their apps and the community. Now I wonder if I should close my account for good.

Conversation

@pip Very nice view! Is double trouble a boat or a jacuzzi? It kind of like looks like both.

Conversation

@Mandalorian Heh, yes! Part of me wishes there’ll be a new series following both Walter and Jesse, but at least Jesse, and maybe Skinny?

Conversation

@canion I don’t know what those fish are called, but they look like the fish-version of a king fisher, (the bird), so they should have been called king fish, and be the king fisher’s dinner.

Conversation

@Cheri The mosquito probably wanted an Americano. Happy travels, hope you’ll get some sleep! 🩸🦟

Conversation

Fish. #mbmay

Conversation

@CTD That’s one of the scariest fish I’ve ever seen!

Conversation

@JohnPhilpin That’s not going to cost anything. I’m sure there’s a part of the demographics that’s their No 1 cause in life, but that’s about the only part of the empire that realistically can be reinstated.

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Great capture! He sees you, and raises one eyebrow. Although he looks magnificent, I wouldn’t want to be too close to be too close to him. I wonder where he gets his food, it doesn’t look like anything grows out there. 🥴🐏

Conversation

@Miraz A 10% loss isn’t the worst given the circumstances, but it’s still annoying. Hoping they landed somewhere you didn’t have to clean up. 🥚🥚🥚

Conversation

@wrenman Hahaha! 😂

Conversation

@wilsongis 😃👍✨

Conversation

@Miraz Yes, that was the name I was looking for. Likewise the deserted island works as well, like the movie Six days and seven nights, or something like that, as an example.

Conversation

@benwerd Here in Norway we would say that’s a no-brainer, but I read your newsletter explaining the nature of things in the US, and how history have shaped it. I don’t know if you read @frankm’s post the other day, but I like the potential.

Conversation

@Christopher Nice! I love how you did the angle on this photo.

Conversation

@Miraz And then they got corona! Is there a name for this genre? (The enclosed murder mystery). @cheri

Conversation

@pip I’ve always liked the yellow headlight bulbs on French cars. Nice exemplar.

Conversation

@Miraz Yepp, I’m expecting sidesteps. I thought I’d sum up each day forward, very short as either vegan, vegetarian, or flexetarian. Yesterday, (Saturday), I ate a kale-mix salad with a low-fat dressing and a little feta cheese for brunch, and three slices of bread with 30% fatty cheese and slices of cucumber for dinner/supper, (dupper(?)). 🥗+🍞 🧀🥒 I only walked 1750 steps, (1 story).🚶‍♂️

LOVE! ❤️❤️❤️ reddit.com

Conversation

@Cheri I wonder if they get a lot of unintentional customers.

Conversation

@zorn That’s a great idea! I have an app from the supermarket chain that I use, and it shows me kg/grams and the general categories of food per month, but not calories.

Conversation

@Miraz Oh, I have always wanted to try working with glass. I think they have courses here too. Will have to check. 🍸🧐

Conversation

@hollyhoneychurch My parents had a couple of rhododendron bushes, and one time my mother was tired and should say she needed to water it, she called it “drondrondron”, and after that we just called it drondrondron. 🌸

@TabTwo We have quite a few identical words I think. 🤔 Both Swedish and Norwegian are Germanic Languages after all. 😃

@rom Is it a grinder?

@otaviocc Do you have the URL ready yet?

@ndreas Congrats! 🎈 Is it electric or petrol?

It’s only fair that I get to pick a random photo for to day’s challenge, since I came up with the word! #mbmay 😂

Conversation

@cliffordbeshers Maybe a shift in the surrounding canopy? I like wonders like that, that one stumble upon.

Conversation

@samgrover I say patent that pattern! It looks very nice.

Conversation

@Miraz The Supermarine Spitfire is not only a beautiful plane, if such can be said about a killing machine, but the name is very awesome too. Let’s hope these planes are the last fighters ever involved in a world war. 🕊
