Martijn My last post on this network was almost 3 years ago? Interesting! Seeing lots has changed. One thing that seems to have changed is that my family name is now unsupported by the system, joy!

🏒 Lucian Marin AMP is destroying the fabric of the web, but nobody seems to care. I quit my previous job because of this. They were trying to convert news feeds into AMP articles and feed them with plenty of ads. The solution to AMP madness is to create lightweight sites with minimal amount of HTML, CSS and JS code.
Martijn IndieWeb cares. Tantek is looking into how to advertise AMP performance gains for normal websites, without depending on entire Google libraries. It's a pretty unique problem.

Martijn This seems really interesting. But also feels like a all-in-one-room game..?

Martijn I would like to like this reply another 9 times, because I never would have found this research by myself.

Martijn Would a vampire actually need to suck blood or will a human heart pump most of the blood into their mouths once the carotid artery is punctured?
John Olinda What. I *just* started using that feature.
Martijn Let me rephrase: YouTube is probably removing it as the button no longer shows in the new interface. You can opt-in to it and see on youtube.com/new (clear cookies to opt-out again.)

Martijn YouTube removed the OPML subscriptions export. Guess I should finally write to code to sync up my subscriptions with my RSS reader.
John Olinda What. I *just* started using that feature.

John Olinda Ouch. Just got an email that Crashplan is discontinuing their Home plans. That's gonna mess me up.
Martijn I am with Backblaze for my backups and pretty happy. For what that's worth.

John Olinda Unfortunately I've ended up back at Press for reading RSS on my Google Pixel. Even though it's not maintained anymore, it's still better than almost anything else out there. I've noticed a bug where it consistently leaves the first article unread though, which is annoying.
Martijn I've had a bug in Press where it would not update the article list view. So I would tap on a category and instead of showing me the X unread posts I expect, it will show me whatever list view full of already read articles it decided to get stuck on Only way to get around that is a restart of the app and a resync. That's why I started looking for an alternative.

Mark Dain Wow, so businesses get to have less crappy VoIP but home/non-business don't?
Martijn Businesses [who pay Microsoft] get to have less crappy [Microsoft products.] There. Fixed it

Martijn And then Palabre marked over 500 RSS items as read and my reading backlog for the week was gone. Can't recommend that app at all.

😀 Tom Quite a few spam accounts joined in the last 24 hours.
Martijn I reported 1 to in private, they made posts linking to / advertising actual copyright infringing stuff. Everything else I am kinda fine with.
