Is it a duck?
Photographs Of The Moon … using an iPhone 7 and a telescope.
All Reuters RSS Feeds in one handy place. Enjoy.
15 years ago we started sending British subjects to America under the ‘Blair Doctrine’ … Without the US even having to say why ….
So unclear why the next natural step is a surprise.
Some of these people on ‘the hill’ need to be taken out … literally … in whatever way, whatever amendment, allows?
Disgusted by them on a daily basis … but today has to be a new low.
For the past two months, I have been running blottings.philpin.com in parallel with a free wordpress site. All has been working fine, so this morning I moved the prior three months of that site to john.philpin.com - perfect.
Doubtless some odd css cleanup as I find them - but random testing says no point in going through it all.
SO .... about that Wordpress site ... well the newest relevant post in there is now 2015 - and the oldest May 2012 ... time to wander through and [see if these posts do in fact provide context](https://blottings.philpin.com/who-are-you-just-in-time-advice) ... or is just garbage.
Wish me luck!
What kind of advice? I hear you ask.
The kind that you should pay heed to if you are reviewing your blogging history. (Aren’t we all?)
S.W.E.E.T. Just connected my codepen ‘css for Blottings’ to iA Writer - so now as I type, my preview is as it will appear on the blog itself. Ulysses might not be my blog editor for much longer..
Prezi - a neat little solution for doing presentations that don’t look like Powerpoint and allows the writer to break out of linear story telling.
So why make slides in Prezi that look like they were made in Powerpoint and tell a linear story?
You know what I’m talking about!
Interesting observation about the new iA Writer shortcuts …. In (say) Feedly and reading oh say Krugman (who tends to put headline and sentence in feed, click through for full), iA Writer shortcut grabs all text from entire article and drops it into your iA Writer folder.
Maths, Visualization and Humor … All in one handy package.
Tags in iA Writer … Lessons for MicroBlog @manton?
I wondered back then if some people were above the law (spoiler alert - they seem to be)
According to Wikipedia …. about three weeks later he resigned.
”Stumpf stepped down as CEO and Chairman of the board on October 12, 2016. In February 2018, Janet Yellen, on her last day as Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (2014-2018), approved a strongly worded critical letter to Stumpf to emphasize his failures as Chair of Wells Fargo board of directors. The letter, signed by Michael Gibson, Director of the Division of Supervision and Regulation, cited Stumpf's complicity in ignoring the bank's poor risk management programs, and failure to initiate any serious investigation into its sales practices.”

And since then donuts.
I guess he’s safe now - or does anyone know any different?
Seven Years Ago Today and still as fresh as ever.
”Checking the time by pulling out your phones like it’s a new-age pocket watch.”
I kinda liked this visual - extracted from a really neat post by the people who know watches
Would a hAPI make us happy?
Cal Newport riffing on Bezos isn’t concluding either way. From where I sit, it seems more theoretical than practical, but well worth a read.
For all you podcasters … and aspiring podcasters … out there …. … I am definitely in the latter category … this struck me as a good resource and nice to see Apple continuing with the ‘how to create’ themes …
… just in case you haven’t read enough yet. (Via The Loop)
Not going to weigh in on conversations I am seeing in various places re Apple’s iPhone pricing policies except that I wish that BMW would sell their 7 series for the same price as the ‘3’. I can buy a Porsche for around the price of a 3, why do BMW charge so much?
Three Years In A Row - That’s John Oliver my friends.
”I heard from a lot of DF readers earlier this year who said they use Chrome instead of Safari just for favicons in tabs — if you’re in that boat, I highly encourage you to give Safari a try. Your MacBook battery will thank you for it.”
Those samples must have been great. Or do you think I should have taken the books?
This particular ‘ToGo’ is Going - maybe the writing was on the wall as well as the door!
