      My kingdom for working Homebrew Subversion 1.8 to 1.7 downgrade instructions!

        @joel Link or it didn’t happen!

          @joel Seriously? In full color?!

            Bezos is an insane genius.

                @vafarmboy I did. It was okay, but I’ve decided I want to pay for my news aggregation service, rather than use a free one that sells my personal info.

                  @joel @marco I ended up on FeedBin and Mr. Reader.

                      Remember all those novels set in a dystopian future with massive multinational corporations beyond government control? Fiction, that.

                        @arstechnica Because it’s not good enough for EA to ruin one venerable series of games per year.

                          @duerig @siracusa I’m not convinced that will matter much. The quantity of users is distinct from actual usage. ADN usage is still very low. Analogous to the Android/iPhone marketshare vs. people-who-are-willing-to-pay-for-things difference.

                            An interesting threshold is coming for app.net. Some time this month we will pass 100k users. app.net will then be a more attractive development platform than Twitter forever. Any new Twitter app will have fewer potential users than an app.net client.

                                @marco But is Betaworks going to podcast about fiddly coffee?! No? One star. Worthless.

                                  @benrice @marco Fortunately, this is ADN, so it’s not an issue here...

                                    @arstechnica To not play them, because they will suck my life away into oblivion.
