I'm using my web browser on my phone to look for an app. I find the app I'm looking for, so then I look around my desk for my phone so that I can pull up the app in the app store, and I can't find my phone >.< It took me longer than it should have. It reminds me of the time I was looking for my eye glasses, they were literally in front of my eyes.
I had a gallon of water in my hand the other day and I was simultaneously looking for where I put it. The human brain--so powerful and so weak at the same time.
Finally updated my /now page. Anyone else have one? If so, share! :) martinrue.com/now
Just found your site and I really loved your article Why Read? Thank you for sharing and elaborating on something that has been on my mind lately!
I tried it briefly last month, and thought the format was refreshing. However, I reverted to Inoreader as I find it more powerful. I would like to switch to a more minimal RSS reader that does not require a browser addon, however.
My favorite for RSS is Readkit. No account is required with anyone.
This is really cool, thanks for sharing. I've been using a vista era program called "enso" by humanized. Not exactly the same as this but I've been religiously using it for text substitution custom commands. On the fly translations or even doing calculations of highlighted text. Espanso looks shiny and new so now I'm excited!
No problem. So far I have found it more useful than TextExpander and free is the right price for me. Very easy to customize too.
My hobby: finding words that fit to arbitrary rules for no reason. Examples: words that contain all five major vowels (evacuation), long words that have only one vowel multiple times (stronghold), words in which the singular form ends in S (species). I like to do that in Portuguese and English... I don't know, it's just fun.
Sounds like you might enjoy Oulipo word/writing games. They are also called constraints. languageisavirus.c...
Text alone can convey the message its all you need. I like this place everyone seems nice and chill
Try yucata.de for web implementations of board games. I've been playing a lot of Oracle of Delphi there.
Very nice. Thank you. I will try to get on a game here soon.
Founder effect?
It's an idea from genetics where you lose variation in a gene pool when a small population establishes something new. Based on presentation alone and the very different features Subreply offers, a certain kind of crowd seems to be attracted to this platform. That is perhaps why I am seeing multiple calls for open sourcing where I don't see in other corners of my web experience.
by open sourcing a pet project like this, the developer can share more than just the presentation of the product (which we are using) but also the full extent of engineering that powers it... you already grasp that part, so the question of incentive or who owes what - obviously owes nobody anything - but if he did [and now i ironically hit the limit so cannot expand much more; but if his code was open we could take a look at how to do such things as extending limits!]
I see. Thank you for responding and for clarifying. You were not the only one that is calling for this, but it did make me curious. I believe we have an interesting founder effect situation happening with who is being drawn to such a minimal social network. I am genuinely intrigued by the calls to improve experiences here. Thank you again!
Subreply should open source itself
Hello. I only loosely understand the history of open source so I am asking this completely from a place of curiosity. Why should? What would this do? Do developers owe extra work to others? Is it just generally the appropriate thing to do with a creation like Subreply? Thank you.
I know rss is dying, but does anyone know which news agencies and whatnot still support it? Don't suppose there's an 'awesome rss collection' floating around
alltop.com was an interesting site that gathered a bunch of them. It seems they are still updating this.
haha, that's great to hear! For sure, please send it over :)
