twitter decentralization, in the news 

Extremely pleased to have provided the closing quote for this Verge article on the Twitter decentralization announcement.

Dr No Time To Never Die Twice Another Day Tomorrow Forever

I wrote a blog on Dungeons and Dragons 5e. It's a mixed bag for me, having played AD&D since the 1980s.

One of my reverse culture shocks moving back to the US was the prevalence of tipping and the various delivery services that get things delivered. I blogged about it.

I wrote a blog post on how to send AWS CloudTrail to ElasticSearch and get a neat dashboard. This is my first blog that will have comments via mastodon.

@Framasoft just announced its ambitions for 2020:

Among these:
* education on several fronts
* #mobilizon, a platform to mobilize people
* increasing popularity of peertube
* "cloud Framasoft": a single account for several services

If you like the work of #framasoft, you can support its team with a donation:

This set of youtube recommendations is really puzzling because they're "recommended for you". But they are comforting. It suggests that YouTube knows little to nothing about me, which is the goal. I was signed into YouTube at the time I saw these recommendations.

The rumours are true, we are working on a mobile app.

- Snap, Caption, Post

- No timelines, only for posting

- Only works with Pixelfed

- Android and iOS versions

- Will continue to support 3rd party APIs

Beta version due out next year! #pixelfed

We have entered the end times. I no longer can change my address or set up direct debit on my UK credit card by using their web site. I can use their mobile app (2019) or I can use the telephone (1969) but I can't use the web (2009).

OMG: I've just discovered a way to use Mastodon for commenting on my blog (based on Hugo). Can't wait to try this out!

So what is the non-Apple, non-Google fitness tracker, now that bought ?

@janellecshane Just heard you on Marketplace! Wow. Nice work. Somehow missed that you have written a book. Gonna go acquire it. I love your work and have spent many minutes laughing at your results (the ones that are supposed to be funny 😜) Congratulations on the book and the good coverage.

I ordered glasses from a local optician. $330. Nearly 4 weeks later they haven't arrived. It's a comedy of errors. In the meantime I discovered an online shop that does really great service and has a huge variety of frames from $10 on up. Finally I just cancelled my order. They offered to make me a free pair of sunglasses as compensation. But with a $330 refund I could buy glasses AND sunglasses online with money leftover. Last time I try to buy from a brick-and-mortar optician, sadly.

Just got an email from a colleague in the Netherlands. His email signs off with "Brgds / Met vriendelijke groet". It amuses me that he abbreviates "Best Regards" but he's happy to write out "Met vriendelijke groet"
