@aaron are you all still hanging out at Easy Tiger?
Is it just me or does the automatic timezone detection in iOS just not work anymore?
Last three trips I’ve taken I’ve had to set it myself.
It’d be nice if sites could provide this info. Local-based sites could tell search engines where their constituency is likely to be and search engines could promote those results above others.
Is there any way for a website to specify (preferably in its markup) that the document’s contents are relevant to a given geographic area?
It doesn’t seem like there is.
TIL there’s a pager emoji. 📟
Also the Apple TV emoji is solidly stuck in the past. I know it’s more distinctive than just a black rectangle but there has to be something better than 📺
Anyone have thoughts on React Native for Android development?
I know basically nothing about either. Used React extensively but not natively.
Also, on Pine.blog there’s no ads. Just sayin’.
Admittedly it wasn’t really my intention to incentivize more in depth reading, but I’ve notified it in myself and I want to figure out how to incentivize it further.
If you’re tired of the news being presented in overly simplistic formats on platforms that discourage reading the whole story check out Pine.blog.
I’ve found that I read a lot more articles and understand the news better than I really ever have.
And with that, I’m finally done with what I’d planned to finish at 10 AM. \o/
Pine.blog Downtime Post-Mortem: A Story of Finite Resources
Pine.blog was down for a while today; here’s why.
tl;dr Turns out parsing and storing entire portions of the web is hard.
I’ll probably post a full post-mortem in the next few hours.
The Quick Version: The web is pretty large; my servers aren’t.
Well that was fun. Pine.blog was out of commission for the last few hours, but it should be back up at 100% now.
Apologies for the downtime.
What’s the difference between a “disc” and a “disk?”
They’re pronounced the same, but, technically speaking, there is a distinct difference between a disc and a disk.
I applaud Senator Gillibrand for her Data Protection Agency proposal.
Gotta ship some Pine.blog updates before then. Time’s passing fast.
I never explicitly said this so here it goes:
I’m going to IndieWebCamp Austin! See y’all there!
Lots of candidates have called for something like this and Seattle tried it!
one aspect of his political vision has been less examined: the overhaul of our dysfunctional campaign finance system.
… Sanders wants to radically expand who is a political contributor by giving all Americans vouchers… for the exclusive purpose of funding eligible political candidates.
Unrelated: Development on the next major step for Pine.blog is wrapping up and should be released soon!
